Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

In a law enforcement venue regardless of other particulars the victim of a assault of such a nature, a knife wound of any sort..... the perpetrator would be arrested and the courts left to hash it out with the assistance of the DA. Most all states are the same in this excepting perhaps now a few suc...

Re: Dharma practice is a placebo.

Now that is funny. I do have a sense of humor and appreciate good quality humor(by my take of course). That which speaks to the angst of common existence. This of course being a solely personal opinion and thusly without real qualifier. Most humor is compassionate in basis I'd guess. Some not, as in...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

During the days of historic china probably in excess of a hundred thousand were killed by various revolutions related to humans who really or for political purpose considered themselves to be the future buddha. Really corruptions are found in all religions past present and will be in the future. It ...

Re: Protective Result

Ahhhh...the reason I am here on this board. I was once many years ago with my favorite dog of the day. In the forest at a unremarkable place this dog found a golf ball. Burying the golf ball at the root of a tree, the dog stopped paused just a bit and looked me in the eye. It then concluded its chor...

Re: Fukushima: It's much worse than you think

Its all in the numbers H. Few comparatively will suffer overtly. So it will not matter. I in a thousand perhaps dies overtly from cause. ONe in ten perhaps dies a somewhat early death, earlier than without exposure. Japan it seems will now stop this thing. Others not a bit. Till they also suffer thi...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

We are simply not in a position to judge this teacher on the basis of this sole issue. The teacher if the stories are true appears faulted. That may be debated and probably well protected as point, quite easily. Certainly I would not adhere to what appears to be this teachers opinion on things. But ...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

Researching this I found one story referencing about mid nineties in this general vicinity on this date. However this was not at a elevation of 7000 if what is stated in that twitter statement is at all true, but at around 4200. So it would be significantly cooler at that elevation probably mid eigh...

Re: Dharma practice is a placebo.

To elaborate a slight bit.....we are so emersed in our defilements attachments and all the rest we take it all as real, thinking as Carl Jung would perhaps say a unconscious universal consciousness perceiving such as real. And real it is.... but such a thing and thing which may identify the past and...

Well I take a different thing from this. First never fast without hydrating :woohoo: . If you are a soft westerner that is.... as I am. Second....investigate all proposed teachers thoroughly taking as much perhaps as seven years or more to see all aspects of the teacher before committing....never ru...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

IF there was any question in the eyes of the law this cause of death would be reported as suspicious and most likely either be subject to a criminal investigation and/or grand jury. Certainly the local DA would make that determination after talking to those involved and most importantly the sheriffs...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

Retreat in cave is practiced for spiritual purpose. A habitable cave is quite a find. Those providing food or drink to those on retreat especially in cave retreat are usually told to do such in as a no contact fashion as possible. These two may not have been up to the task or he may just have died.....

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

Here is a link from a buddhist tradition that emphasizes fasting. http://www.urbandharma.org/udharma9/fasting.html Consider in the 18 day fast only very small amounts of water is taken. Again conjecture...but this makes sense in this circumstance. Sounds like these two were off alone and on their ow...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

Well just playing amateur detective here...I'd surmise if they had been suffering such the news report would have stated this was likely due to a illness. There was no reported follow up to the story so I can assume the water tests came back negative...or else it would have been reported. A poison a...
