Re: Tummo traditional test

Re: Economics..yes,,they are this dim

It's not that easy. Even Mila needed food. You think Americans are going to stop by your house and drop off food? That's a laugh.

C'mon, economy and other situations are empty in nature. there is no spoon, everything is in your mind. Even if it cra...

Re: My friend is dying

The most valuable thing you could do is to explain her the idea behind Phowa and then inspire her to attend a Phowa teaching.
Unless she is a practitioner already, a year from now or 100 years from now the death will happen anyway.
At least she could do Phowa at that moment.

I adopted a simple rule for all my practices - I do not practice anything unless I understand 3 things: 1. The objective - what is it for exactly, how does it advance me on the path, why I can't avoid it. Outer, Inner, Secret, Innermost Secret Objective. 2. The method - how it works and why this met...
