Phowa Skulls, Auspicious Signs of Success

Postby Aemilius » Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:42 am

Here are amazing pictures of skulls of deceased persons. They have wholes and other signs in their skulls, because of the perfection of the great phowa practice.

Sometimes i think that relics are kind of disgusting to me, but their existence its important to show us that phowa is real.

Probably these pictures are fakes. Becouse the so-called "hole" is always apparently of the same size, like the size of a the tip of a tool. This is a chinese website and it seams a fraud.

In some cases, you could even see more than one hole! Probably the guy perceing the skull with a tool made a mistake? :twothumbsup:

I don't think consciousness really needs these holes. They have appeared because of imagination, or visualisation that is taken very literally. People are of different types. There is also the Dharmakaya phowa, that is very different from this kind of visualising.

"Does cocsciousness need a hole to escape?"

Maybe Namdrol could give us an answer to this question?
