Re: The siddhi of winning wars

I know of those interpretations, but they are certainly not the only ones, The Kalacakra sort of resolves all these questions. Are you saying that the Kalacakra tantra does not contain specifically wrathful (in the literal sense) practices? Or are you saying that the tantra resolves the practical a...

Re: enlightment in one life

Mind nature is like a reflation, not litterally a reflation. Empty, here, in hell, and in sukhavati. This kind of talks makes me feel strange 😱 It’s kind of literal, except you are the face and the mirror in a dream. That's clarity, any way yep, all might be just an imagination. I wonder why if we ...

Thank you for your response Malcolm. Does the spontaneous compassion of the basis produce action in the same way that mind produces...

Re: The siddhi of winning wars

What, then, does give the authority to use these abilities? Nothing actually. Rather the acts of killing, etc., have an entirely different meaning, related to the stopping of winds in the central channel. I know of those interpretations, but they are certainly not the only ones, The Kalacakra sort ...

That makes sense but, do you still need mantras etc at that point?
Do you not just sort of have those abilities at that point?
Do Buddhas stop practicing once they reach enlightenment? Who knows?
They never give up their vows.

I think the Drikung view is the tantras give these abilities but not the authority to use them. What, then, does give the authority to use these abilities? Nothing actually.

Re: enlightment in one life

sometimes i think that "ilumination in one life" is pure bullshit, we hear "this one is emanation of this one, and that one is emanation of that one" ha ha ha ha so seems to be that enlightening is only for emanations (laughing) how ever, what is enlightenment? it is a title? a kind of conclution? ...

Re: How genetics is settling the Aryan migration debate

Part Indo-Iranian, you mean. It seems that the migration to India was not an "invasion," but a piecemeal migration by single men over some number of centuries. I imagine, given patrilineal inheritance in the Proto Indo-European community in general, these were young men whose older brothers stood i...

Re: How genetics is settling the Aryan migration debate

The thorniest, most fought-over question in Indian history is slowly but surely getting answered: did Indo-European language speakers, who called themselves Aryans, stream into India sometime around 2,000 BC – 1,500 BC when the Indus Valley civilisation came to an end, bringing with them Sanskrit a...

The Trumpification of Dharmawheel

Authorititarian censorship of speech results in the dumbing down, the stupification and degradation of humanity, democratic ethics and everything good in the world. Dharmawheel is run by such authoritarian hacks that can only be described today as Trump-esque. Of course they predate Trump and his gr...
