Is it really a day without dharma wheel discussions referencing Wikipedia and blood being drawn from live male penises.
You forgot the pus pimple offerings....................surely inventive and so much more real than, say, Chod.

I think the piss is being taken out of us......... thankfully that is all!

Lol yah sometimes I think we need a bit of humor and "space" on these discussions. Keeps us from going down the rabbit holes and literally being maybe a "little" off base .... :rolling:

Male penises? Aren't they all male?

So the statue was erected and unfortunately, I ended up being tempted to pray to her.
Unfortunately you were tempted?
What does the even mean?
Are you an addict?
You made a choice, that's how it goes.
Before I did so, I took great caution and recited the Simhamukha mantra and Palden Lhamo mantra with visualised offerings and request to protect me, then began the prayer to Santa La Muerte. Rather than use the "In the Name of the Father.....", I used "By the Three Jewels, the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha..."
That is very rude.
Despite her worldly history, and her classification according to a Buddhist worldview, Santisima Muerte is absolutely a spirit and is real (I'm mean, you know, as "real" as anyone else... ...you know what I mean!).
Her follows LOVE her and see her as a mother. They don't use deities from other religions to protect themselves from her.
She is also Catholic. If you can't use her prayers (and there is absolutely no reason why you should be able to, I'm just saying) then there is absolutely no reason for you to be attempting to work with her.
along with a pus and blood offering
Well, I guess that might be something.
It wouldn't be very Buddhist, but it might have gotten her attention if you took the time to learn traditional practices and...
(pimples can be of use for both,
Are you F!@#ing kidding me!!!!???
Seriously, ...that's a joke right?
WTHF!?
Are you seriously presenting the popping of your pimples as a respectful and meaningful sacrifice to a powerful spirit?
I just...
I mean...
OMFG ...."I can't even!"

She did not want human sacrifices, she, like most Aztec and Maya gods, loved most sweetly the blood from live male genitals. You can find this substantiated online, if my word is not enough https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloodlett ... esoamerica. Search "genitals". The rabbit hole does deeper, though, by far, when it comes to antique Mesoamerican religion.
Just another day on Dharmawheel.

I feel like my DharmaWheeling is not complete without sufficient substantiation.

My point is, if the OP really wants to please Mictecacihuatl, (s)he would give her a different offering. Not that (s)he should.

You should meet the people I hung out with in university....

They'd call you 'problematic' for saying that. Maybe there is a reason I don't hang out with them anymore.

I was interested and I think others are too. Where is all this rage towards coemgenu coming from, most of the time he/she just broadens out conversations and makes them a bit better. I must have missed a blow out or something :P

Its possible that your mind can be so open it's contents fall out, like a bucket whose bottom fails. This is either called enlightenment or insanity depending on who you talk to.

Gender, it seems is no longer connected with what kind of junk you have. Kind of a relief, I guess. :woohoo:
