As Vasana said previously, "Obsession with the supernatural is probably a stronger mara than any genuine encounter so bear that in mind long term."
Turns out to be VERY true.
Her followers here think it's a way to "honor the Aztec traditions" and their culture/ethnicity.
Also, according to one of them(I'll keep it anonymous as it doesn't like to reveal it's identity), pus is fine, but blood is more preferable if offering bodily parts, but better off regular foods, clothes, money, etc.
It's not like last time where I tried pis, poop, blood, and pus all together as an offering(without the semen, I'm not going that far) to the dharmapalas, remember?
Just an FYI, mind my ignorance. It's a constant thing that hasn't been tamed fully in spirituality, so don't get to attached and angry over it.
Anyhow, Merci Beaucoup!
Lmao, I have no attachments to your ignorance and am not angry at your actions (my post was rhetorically worded to make a point) although I am confused at your apparent continued willful ignorance, your asking for advice that you don't follow and your lack of awareness of the appropriateness, or lack thereof, of asking particular questions in particular places.
What is it, precisely, that you want?
Cheap thrills and association with the 'dark side?'
Still looking to kill folks?
If your not going to listen to the advice you receive on this forum, why keep asking for it?
Those are actually serious questions for you, that you also did not answer on the dharamapala thread you started.
You seem to ask straightforward questions, but when you get straightforward answers you don't listen.
Generally that means that your real
question is something different. If you ask your real question, you might get a useful answer.
If you want to worship Santa Muerte, go ahead.
You can consider yourself Buddhist, or not, and do whatever you feel like doing;
but if you go to a Buddhist forum and ask about her, you will be told that she is not a Buddhist deity.
This is pretty clear, in fact it happened.
If you decide to work with her regardless, this does not seem like the most appropriate place to ask for advice.
Find people who are part of her tradition, read books on her, go to internet forums where people interact with her.
If your friend who said popping you pimples for Santa Muerte is a good idea is such an expert of her practices, histories and traditions and your going to work with her, why are you asking questions here about it?
If that's the case, talk to your friend and do her practice. You'll either get in touch with her or not and, if you do, you'll find out real quick what she thinks.
My rhetorical flourish was to illustrate that, from my humble personal perspective as someone who works with spirits, that what you explained was ridiculous and rude.
Don't be attached to thinking what your doing is okay or a good idea, or expecting people to support in doing whatever you want.
