Re: Looking for help with severe provocations

I am not expert with these issues but from what i know, spirit possession often involved karmic debt that is best resolved in peaceful way before using wrathful methods. Like many have suggested, an accomplished lama will be best to resolve this issue. Another peaceful method that has not yet been m...

Re: What appeals to you about the Lotus Sutra?

There are two main reasons that appeal to me. 1. The Chinese translation is extremely beautifully poetic. 2. Many ancient masters and lay people have attained high or some realization buy reciting it. Chinese text has taken the trouble to record these cases which goes to show the popularity of this ...

Re: The Golden Light Sutra

This sutra has a chapter on how to purify one's negative karma. The earliest Chinese Mahayana repentance practice is based on this sutra. Then slowly, other repentance practices such as 88 Buddhas confession which includes the Three Heaps Sutra replaced it.

Re: New Rainbowbody Manifestation

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

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

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.

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.

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...
