Re: Freemasonry

Hey, I never said that Theosophy isn’t rather hit or miss; only that there are some interesting things there. Even though there could have been “black magicians” in Bön, that H.P. Blavatsky didn’t even know that Bön is a authentic Dharma tradition, would be an major miss on her part, for example. Th...

Re: Freemasonry

My Uncle Harry was a Member of The Ancient Order of Buffaloes. During his wanderings around the flatlands of Penge he was initiated into Lobsang Rampa’s Secret Society of the Penguin, an Ancient Occult Brotherhood dedicated to protecting mankind from Koala Bears because they are in fact small demon...

Re: Freemasonry

(Swedenborg is known to have been a follower of Christian-oriented Masonry).... On the Lost Word of Masonry (which I believe to be not a “word”, but one letter, hidden in plain-sight this whole time in India, “Tartary, China, and Thibet”): No wonder that the Northern seer, Swedenborg, advises people...

Re: Freemasonry

I do agree that most lodges in english-speaking countries are more focused on charity work (and dinners) but in other parts of the world Freemasonry offers a true spiritual path that easily adapts to personal believes and practices. (Except in countries like Sweden where brothers practice Christian...

Re: Freemasonry

Nonetheless, the work that David Reigle and David Pratt are doing on the ‘Book of Dzyan’ and the ‘Book of Kiu-Te’ is kind of interesting; as well as Blavatsky’s connections with the Panchen Lama of her time.

Re: Freemasonry

“Not even in the lounge” huh? Well this is the lounge, and I still find it kind of interesting. But as we can even see, as I’d posted above from Blavatsky herself in Isis Unveiled , that western secret societies do not–and did not even 100 years ago-have much to offer anymore; aside from social/poli...

Re: Freemasonry

I’ve always found the following passage from Isis Unveiled to be very interesting: That we may not be accused of vain boasting, we shall give the keys to several of the secret ciphers of the most exclusive and important of the so-called higher Masonic degrees. If we mistake not, these have never bef...

Re: Freemasonry

I’d made no personal judgements in regard to your screen-name. I was more referring to what Nicholas and Malcolm wrote on this page of this thread. There seems to be some link between the Masonic-Rosicrucian S.R.I.A. and the Golden Dawn, via William Wynn Westcott and others. That is interesting abou...

Re: Freemasonry

When Shiva as Rudra was subdued by the Buddhas, did he not convert to Vajrayāna?

Also, that was kind of a long time ago, so you would think that Shiva would be a Buddha by now....

Therefore, would not current devotees of Shiva be, albeit unwittingly, devoted to a Buddha?

Re: Freemasonry

In Theosophy, I believe that, in the past at least, the more involved you became with the Theosophical Society as an organization, you would eventually go through Masonic style initiations. Likely more along the lines of so-called Egyptian Rite Masonry as opposed to UGLE style Freemasonry. I could ...

Re: Eminem darkness

By the way, when I said that Eminem’s older more underground style stuff is a bit better, I just meant style-wise. I’m not usually an fan of over-the-top disrespectful/shock-value type lyrics, including Eminem’s, and whether it is Eminem’s older or newer material.

Re: Does Buddhism Require You To Be a Liberal?

One cannot perform a procreative physical act with a person of the same gender. Of course not. I’m sure you know what I meant. A transgendered person is someone who was born that way, even if they need to have reassignment surgery. They don’t need to, and the reassignment will not change them to th...

Good point^. But I think that the kalpa-ending conflagration would be a swift painless death, we then would all be reborn in the upper deva realms of the form realm for some time, and then ‘the universe’ would start all over again.

Re: Does Buddhism Require You To Be a Liberal?

There is no such thing as an "otherwise straight" child. Generally speaking, gender differentiation, in Tibetan Medicine and Ayurveda, occurs about three weeks after conception, though it can be changed in the third week of pregnancy. If you are gay, you were born that way, according to Tibetan Med...
