Re: New Rainbowbody Manifestation

More photos after many days. The Kudung looks obviously very thin and small now.

Re: New Rainbowbody Manifestation

Two more photos. May all beings be liberated from the suffering of samsara and attain the state of Buddhahood.

The Tukdam state apparently only started a few days ago from 16th Dec.

Who is it?

Looks a lot like the famous Khenpo Munsel
Anonymous yogi. I hope it is not a photo hoax. The monk with spectacle in the first photo is Lodro Ranse (rabsel?) Rinpoche.

Re: New Rainbowbody Manifestation

Sichuan, Ganzi.

I think it is the first time we see photo with the head and partial body of a shrunken rainbowbody that is still in Tukdam. This yogi has chosen to be naked, only covered with a monk robe when he entered tukdam.

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

The suspicion of the Chinese gov on these churches is actually quite well founded if you look at this https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2018/nov/24/taiwan-same-sex-marriage-vote-referendum Even just as minority group with less than 5% followers, they will seek all means to force their v...

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

I don't know about you all but I am sincerely more worried about the spread of certain strand of christianity in asia than autocratic chinese gov. The party may still be called "communist" but it is the most business minded ever. I certainly welcome their focus on economic growth to lift as many peo...

There is a Sakya Vajrayogini empowerment coming up. The requirements listed is any HYT empowerment.

Doesn't it have to be a Sakya mother tantra empowerment?
AfAIK, it has to be a major sakya wangchen, meaning two days empowerment. For Vajrayogini, the best will be Hevajra or Chakrasamvara.

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Consider this case of Chanai Choomalaiwong: == Chanai is a boy from Thailand, who, when he was three years old, began saying that he had been a teacher named Bua Kai who had been shot and killed as he rode his bike to school. He pleaded and begged to be taken to Bua Kai’s parents, who he felt were h...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Please, Wayfarer, I know Ian Stevenson seems to confirm our beliefs as Buddhists but let's try not to oversell him. http://skepdic.com/stevenson.html In my opinion, the critics' views should be taken positively so that they can be used in advantage for improving the methodology. For example, the cr...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Do you mean, a proof accessible to those who have not developed the five abhijñās, no. One can develop that capacity and ascertain it for oneself. Like the sciences, it requires training and education. Are there examples who have achieved this insight and available for public inquiry? Mind over mat...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

How many type of samadhis, i do not know. But there are many references in sutras of arahats and practitioners entering "deep samadhi" for which they can stayed in deep concentration without any food or moving around for prolonged period of time. Mahakashyapa is said to have entered such kind of dee...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

By the way, Malcolm mentioned samadhi. Some time ago, I have searched high and low for objective evidence for samadhi. A laboratory test of some unusual mental state is best qualified as evidence. Any meditators who have sitted still for 3 or more days, 7 days, best is one month, without leaving hi...

Re: How is enlightenment achieved in madhamaka and tiantai?

So I've been reading about nagarjuna and emptiness and see that he is always trying to negate the systems of his contemporaries whilst offering no system of his own. My question is: did nagarjuna ever categorically offer a positive means or ANYTHING at all about what enlightenment is or how to get ...

Re: Advantage and disadvantage of ego and egolessness

The people that kept asking didn't give anything themselves! And it is very poorly run, unaccountable even bordering cheating, inefficient spending possibly based on ego. For example, telling you there is a project to place 6 Guru Rinpoches statues in six part of the world...and really, who should ...
