Ah, hi, thank you. :) For us there was vacation until now. I was very tired all the time between christmas and new year. There was a teaching of the dalai lama in livestream and my alarmclock rang at 4:30 am to watch it. That was inspiring and exhausting too.

In this longterm chat I say to this, what i quoted from shaunc.... The people are everywhere very different with their children. For example the russians throw their babies into ice water, as they are taking a bath there themselves. Or my children (age 13 & 16) were allowed to throw firecrackers the whole nicht on 31th Dec.

Yes, you're right different cultures often view the same thing very differently. I remember being in the Philippine Islands seeing my wife's family & they couldn't believe we let our kids play junior rugby league. They were horrified that we'd let our kids play such a rough sport. The same people are happy to let a couple of 8 year old boys box.

Shamanism is still alive & well in western culture. Well 1/2 of it anyway. They're often referred to as herbalists & naturopaths. In rural areas anyone that's using a home remedy on their livestock & sometimes children is practising a very mild & basic form of shamanism. At the moment I'm using commercial poultry wormer on my chickens due to an amalgamation of 2 different flocks. But when I only had 5 hens to worm I used a mixture of garlic & chilli to keep them wormed. A friend of mine makes his own linament for racing dogs out of a 50/50 mixture of rum & eucalyptus oil. All this type of thing is extremely basic shamanism.

...so, I guess the point I was making is how arbitrarily people pass judgements on different traditions. I know a few people who are involved in various traditions but don't mention it because people will look at them askance.

Shamanism is interesting because it is sometimes related with Buddhism, even though other times it has nothing to do with the dharma. But, because it can be related to dharma, it seems like a lot of people tend to accept it as something generally "good." But, if you told people you were happy to be joining some old witch cult and learn all about herbs and such, they would not feel the same.

That's true, we have to experience both. In some cultures you can't be a shaman/healer unless you have first been extremely ill,either physically or spiritually

And often it is good to ask oneself: How is the opposite called, how is it like?

There's always 2 haves to a whole. Night & day, summer & winter, man & woman, etc. we're lucky to have the dharma to teach us that. There's a lot of people that don't know about the dharma.

Conventionell and absolute. It takes some time, study and meditation to understand this.

Your completely right for my taste. The same thing with love: without love and compassion for myself, there's no scope for L&C for others... And also Bodhicitta is of two kinds:
