Re: Deepfakes

So, a President who tells people not to believe what they see has now used a doctored video to accuse CNN's Acosta’s of touching a female White House staffer without her consent. The video was speeded up etc. to make it look as if Costa hit her arm. They didn't even do it themselves, they apparentl...

Re: Blue "ripple"

Seems Trump may see out his term, but perhaps with a limp and a quack. You never know, they may actually get enough on him to lock him up as soon as his term ends, as it look unlikely he will ever be impeached successfully. They can embarrass the hell out him though. Maybe now they can finally get ...

It's fine to have doubt as long as you question, but if you doubt without question, that's Blind Faith.
Clearly, not having blind faith, people questioned. Answer was there none.

Re: The Wanderer

With the Vajrayana, By virtue One was drawn to the Lineage that says that a Monk is One's Manifestation. Now, the Sangha has a resident Monk that is the head of a Vajrayana Monastery and some of the Lineage Holders (H.H., H.E.) have visited. Asking One to Teach. What say you now? Well, this One say...

Re: A Horny Dilemma

From the style of the etching I would say it is Indonesian. Maybe it was a scabbard? I think you're on the right lines. Best guess so far is that it is a Javanese King or Deity character as used in the shadow puppetry - Ramayana etc. Not Hanuman (no tail) or Garuda (no wings) but maybe Brahma? Load...

Re: Alternative to possibly toxic metal kapalas

Anything from human bones is illegal in Germany, AFAIK. We are only allowed to burry or cremate human bones - or to use them for science with certain permission. But anyhow, thank you @all for this thread. I wasn't informed yet about this, but that dosn't mean anything 'cause I'm an absolute beginn...

A Horny Dilemma

I bought an old etched horn today and recognise the drawing, but have no idea what it is of, or indeed what the time is. I've seen similar horns used by shamans but this may not be the same, albeit the carving is a bit phurba-like. It is about 1 foot long and almost olive-coloured. Somebody clearly ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Of course but the questions being asked here are very basic and have been addressed before. We all need to support each other not shame them into the shadows of self doubt and isolation. Absolutely. :) We have to use common sense here. Some explanations are just fine, even if quoting ChNN's books o...

Re: Alternative to possibly toxic metal kapalas

Possible to use alternative vessels, but there are some good ceramic kapalas available now, which would be less 'chemical' than a resin one, for example. With a real kapala, source is important. I wouldn't want to be using one from a grave-robbing, executed criminal, etc. Same with all the bone impl...
