Is it possible to get a religious vaccine exemption?

Anything goes (almost).

Nemo, and this also relates to Jikan's questions, if vaccinations could be distributed more NOT by evil corporatist government programs and NOT by organizations on the payroll of the extremely corrupt contemporary medical system, then perhaps it's a different story.

If there is a major outbreak, then yeah maybe getting vaccinated could be Bodhisattva activity (perhaps H.H. the Dalai Lama was administering them in that Youtube video because there was a major outbreak, and he knew that the vaccines he was administering were not full of the garbage listed in the pic I'm going to post below...).

Nowadays though, to get vaccinated would in many cases be in violation of the Tantric precepts:


In Enlightened Journey, Tulku Thondup wrote:"To afflict one's own five aggregates, which are the Buddha families. One should not abuse one's own body but take care of it."


Why would it be in violation of the above Tantric precept?

Here's part of the reason:

Other reasons are mentioned within the links on the dangers of vaccines posted throughout this thread (such as http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/ etc.), which, I ask again, did anyone even bother to read through them at all?

Another:

"...'herd immunity', a concept which with regards to vaccination, and contrary to prevalent beliefs, does not rest on solid scientific evidence.”

And like I'd said before, as long as nobody here is trying to make vaccines mandatory, then to each their own.

So your objection is to capitalism and not to vaccines as such?

I don't disagree with your mistrust of these institutions, by the way.

It's not such much that I'm against (Free-Market) Capitalism, and/or (Changchub Dorje style) Socialism (because if they're done right, either can work).

What I am against, is the greedy sadistic top-1%'s corporatism & cartel-usury-banking under the guise of true Socialism and Free-Market Capitalism:

Now I'm not a huge fan of Samael Aun Weor (a non-Marxist Socialist) and Ron Paul (a Free-Market Capitalist) anymore, and yet I do still think that they make a lot of sense when it comes to vaccines (notice how neither of them are corporatists):

Most vaccines are produced with government, university and nonprofit NGO research and funding. They are not particularly profitable and would not exist without this support.

I'm not saying vaccinations are safe. They never will be. But they are exponentially safer than the diseases they prevent. 1 dead per 3 million vaccinations is better than 1 in 4000. Simple math. Feel free to be the selfish ass who let's others take the risk while still enjoying the benefits of herd immunity.
