Hell fells very real. Arguably since the mind is 7 times more powerful in the bardo it would feel 7 times more real. Calling this world real is also a fallacy. To a real Buddhist Hell is not a metaphor. Gods are also not metaphors. Meditation does not stop at Shamatha. This is some Western Buddhist pseudo-intellectual feeling important by picking on stupid people.

Sure, but funny, "Western Buddhist pseudo-intellectual feeling important by picking on stupid people" and all. In fact that is probably why it is funny. :smile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HGVm9DG ... r_embedded
