Comments:if texts should not be read or used without empowerment, etc, and could be dangerous, why not put that warning in BIG RED LETTERS so it is very clear. even better, make a pop-up so they have to click to close the box, then they might at least read it. otherwise it seems not enough care is taken to keep the teachings from unintended audience

Comments:Hi! thank you for a very interesting site! I am a Danish woman currently studying for my master's degree in the History of Religions with a project which is a comparison between Buddhist tantric, Hindu tantric and esoteric Daoist perceptions of the cosmic and symbolic powers of the universe. I am extremely interested in reading a translation of the Guhyasamaja tantra and noticed that you have Franscesca Fremantle's dissertation and translation. The problem is I can't open the file properly. I have tried several computers now but it won't work for more than a couple of minutes and it cannot be printed out which I need because I cannot read on a screen. What can I do? Hope you will help me. kindest regards, Signe

The translations in the dissertation are misleading and will cause more harm than good at this point. Thank you.

Comments:I quote: "Warning: Traditionally, some of these materials would only be available for viewing after the requisite empowerment or permission by a qualified teacher of the lineage. Many teachers regard reading such material without empowerment or permission as potentially harmful. " All the tantras are not to be read or studied and especially practiced without empowerment. I hope you have the karma to make up for all the people come across this and use these the wrong way or with the wrong view.

Comments:No real feedback. I found this site after reading the tribe entry on the Five Tibetans and the link there led me here. I practice Atma Vichara (40+ years) and have been aware of sphurana for many years. Fairly recently I would have said I lean toward Advaita Vendanta (and to some extent I still do--I re-read what was written about Ramana). Now, however I mostly think/say I am whatever I am and do whatever I do.

Comments:Amazing resource! I'm interested in and doing research on entheogens in origins of Tantra, especially around Oddiyana. I was a "hippie" in the 60's in SF. Went overland to India in 71-74. At the UW Madison from 75-81 with that generation of Buddhist scholars and practicing since on west coast, Nyingma...did all the retreats I upstate NY with Penor R. Lamas deny any use of entheogens, but my psychedlic roots find that hard to grok. I can't quite believe no psychedelics were used. Those Dakini Feasts in Oddiyana sound a bit suspect; the so-called Indo-Aryan "mother goddess" tradition seems related to the Greek Dionysian rites looks like it merged on the Silk Road...to me. I'll be looking at some of these articles, but let me know if you have any specific suggestions where to look for what was going on in the homeland of Garab Dorje and Padmasambhava.

Comments:Dear Dharma friend, At least a great site as yours! I am very grateful to you for this gift of Dharma to share with everyone. I am a Zen Buddhist teacher and scholar, so, I am already working on some material you posted. Also, a request: could you post material about mantras and dharanis in the Buddhist traditions? there are several interesting articles (Gonda, Grundwedel, etc.) hard to find. And if is possible, to post material about Sino-japanese Tantra, Tachikawa-ryu and related topics? Thank you so much again and I pray for a long and free life to your wonderful site.

My ex-wife, Lama Caroline has just lost her thesis as her hard drive crashed, so this will help to cheer her up a bit. You can look forward to her input in the future I expect. many best wishes, bless you whoever you are...

Comments:Aren't some of the materials listed in the archive of a secret nature? As in one would need a HYT empowerment. It would be highly beneficial if you had member logins. The members would have to give proof of empowerment. It can be hazardous to the mental health of practicioners if they read Tantras without empowerment.

Comments:You have what looks like the begining of a good site. It will need a lot of work for it to meet its real potential but so fare so good. I love the articles in the archive but they seem to repesents some kind of idiosyncratic course of study. Is this material you've gathered for a specific purpose? Are you working on your own dissertation or what's the deal?
