I was suspended for some 15 days. Advice was given again and again to take a Guru on Lotus sutra.

Tried hard for a Guru on Lotus sutra ....result failed

So I have approached Brahamakumaris.
I have gone thro 11 lectures given by Shivani on Raja yoga, 15 more to come.
Till now they do not challange the Lotus sutra of my understanding.
If all the lectures given by Shivani On the site Brahamakumaris agree with me or I accept them.
then I will adopt their guru or God whose name is SHIVA.
SHIVA is luckily my ancestral family Guru/God.

I have also changed my meditation system and take all my meditation energy on the centre of
forehead where SHIVA resides. In my view he is an advanced Bhoddisattva who has had powerful
effect on this present world particularly in India. They are as popular as HARE KRISHNA movement.

20 years of meditation on Lotus sutra will never go away, but its understanding may change.
So bye to Buddhims for now and back to Hinduism

Goodbye Ram and good luck on your new old path! :smile:

PS I am glad you finally found a tradition that coincides with your view.

Hi Ram,

Thank you for sharing. If you don't mind additional sharing, why the focus on the forehead (3rd eye)? Is there a particular energetic reason? Also, Is not Shiva often associated with the crown? Finally, I have found that a connection to a guru is found at the heart (heart energy connection).

Thanks, Jeff

Let guru be guru. Let buddhism be buddhism and hinduism be hinduism. how about "you"? ... i.e. and what cares? :sage:

Very successful in actual physical contact with Brahamakumaris. 50-60 persons offered prayers in my house on Sunday.

Mental (meditation) spiritual contact seems to have been estabilished thro Baba with Shiva. Waiting for confirmation.

Focus on 3rd. eye is the method suggested by them and you will get your answer.
