Re: Yidams on a bikini

I think that is the perfect note to end this conversation on.

Thank you Rinchen Samphel!

If anybody has got something to add, that will not pull this conversation around in circles, please feel free to PM me.

How do you pronounce Namo Gurubhya? Na-mo Goo-roo-byah? Na-mo Goo-roo-bay? Na-mo Goo-roo-bay-ah? How?
Na-mo goo-roo-byah.
I go with Na-mo Goo-roo-bay.
That's the one I was taught too.

Re: Yidams on a bikini

I defend your right to speak up, of course. You seem able to do so without being rich or powerful. To an audience of you, who happens to not be listening. ;) Background noise. Look up 'snowflakes' - they are usually overly protected middle class twats. Yes, but we are not talking about protecting m...

Re: Yidams on a bikini

However hideous the examples, I place freedom of expression above all restriction of speech which offends people. In the UK we now have a culture which is reaching the point where it drags people into court for offending anyone about anything. Literally, anything. I think that this idea of "freedom...

Re: what do you think of this article on Tibetan Buddhism?

To be fair to the writers of articles like this, it’s not as if the Tibetans ever wrote texts warning of the dangers of vajrayana in general, the importance of a genuine qualified guru, and the dangers of a false guru. No, don’t recall ever seeing any of that, not at all. And there were definitely ...

View the movie of Trumperica not as a disaster movie, or tragedy ... but as a black comedy, a reality-tv-ized version of Idiocracy.
I fail to see the humor in the suffering and death of innocents.
I mean it's fun to be the bad guy for a change, right?
For a change???

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

To be somewhat uncomfortably candid with you, the reason I’m currently interested in holotropic breathwork and other ‘hacks’ is rather specific: to deactivate the neural default mode network. This is the neural network associated with the sense of self. As a Buddhist, I assume it makes intuitive se...

Fake news is fast becoming the catch phrase, an easy out for much of the science
that in some way threatens the far right including climate change.
Thing is though, that there is actually plenty of fake news out there.

Re: US diplomats fall sick in Cuba, China. A new weapon?

A new conspiracy theory? It's not a theory, US diplomats have been affected by this in both Cuba and China now, with the same symptoms in both places. There's been a couple of theories presented, but no confirmed answers so far. This article goes in depth about some possibilities, written by a prof...

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

Does a meditation technique mean very little when removed from a religious context? If so, doesn’t that mean it’s merely a ritual. Of course it does. I was taught the technique within the context of psychotherapeutic training. The trainer wanted to do nothing more than induce an experience. Any exp...

Felt a bit 'high' for about 15 minutes after.
It is called hyper-oxygenation and it is a complete waste of time. Actually, it can be physically damaging.
