Re: Clear Coat for Tarnished Brass Bowls

The only other option is to tackle the source and buy jerry cans of distilled water.

Re: Clear Coat for Tarnished Brass Bowls

There are lacquers etc. but I prefer to use Renaissance Wax, a museum quality treatment which lasts well and is easily repeated, and not costly.

Definitely, seek out a Lama and ask them to do a divination to find out A) if there is spirit provocation, in Tibetan called don , B) what category of spirit specifically, C) why the spirit is causing t...

Honestly going veg is not going amazing. My coffee consumption has doubled and I ate half a box of cookies last night which I never do.
Me neither. It's the whole box or nothing!

Snacking slowly on nuts may work better as the protein satisfies appetite better than a load of sugar and fat.

Re: Great Vegan Debate

The month of Saga Dawa has started. Peaking on the next full moon. What a wonderful time to be vegetarian for a few days. Even not preparing meat in the house till the full moon. Anything helps. I was in Vietnam a couple of weeks ago for the United Nations Vesak Day conference. They had the most in...

Re: Occult Stories

Check out William Hope Hodgson.
He wrote some very odd but innovative horror and fantasy - including The Night Land which I think may well have been an influence on Tolkein. His sea horrors also may have influenced Lovecraft.

Re: Manjushri Garland Clarification, Please?

In general--and you really should clarify these details according to the specific practice instructions, usually (but not always) found in the Tri texts--when one is practicing nyenpa for actualizing/activating/accumulation of a deity, the mantras would face in, and would be written clockwise and r...

Re: So this gym rat says to me

I once belonged to a gym where coincidentally the staff were all instructors in different martial arts. As a member I added my shit Yoshinkan Aikido to the party, another Kickboxing and another Capoeira....and so it went on. Instead of weights, we often spent our time in a back room teaching each ot...

Re: Bonpo Tibetan 'Qi Dao' ?

The connection to Bön is total bullish*t. There was another guy in Portland who invented a crypto christian/Bön system with a wordpress blog too. He called it New Yungdrung Bon, which is total bogus too... He claims: ''Lama Padmayev had actually singled me out through the process of divination as a...

Re: Bonpo Tibetan 'Qi Dao' ?

My guess is that he studied Dream Yoga with Dr. Nida. Dr. Nida taught this to a very large group a few summers ago at Swami Chetananda's center. It was a two-day class with no practice sessions. Thanks. Yes, possibly so. It was his student's assertion that it was a part of his teaching which again ...

Re: Bonpo Tibetan 'Qi Dao' ?

"Qi Dao" sounds made up , "Qi way"...ugh. He apparently made up the name becuase the real Tibetan name was too hard for Westerners: The REAL Tibetan name is apparently 'Tru Hore'. I guess he's having a stab at Trul Khor? A master's name would seem pretty easy to find, if so, and authority to teach ...

Re: Bonpo Tibetan 'Qi Dao' ?

There's a Tibetan version of White Crane. I think it's called Lama Pai, IIRC the origins of it are somewhat disputable, but that's true of many martial arts. Tantrapa... seriously. He did not even try google. :jumping: "Qi Dao" sounds made up , "Qi way"...ugh. The thing with internal arts is that t...

Re: spying spirits

Hello, Does anyone know what are the "spying nyuley spirits"? how can one identify them? Thank's in the advance :) I've come across the wording 'Nyul Ney' in relation to a certain Gyalpo spirit.
