The Oracle of Tibet : A 400 Year Old Secret

Postby phantom59 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 4:32 pm

Cloaked in secrecy for over 400 years, the State Oracle of Tibet has been a strange and mystical aspect of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. This ancient spirit, which has inhabited a succession of thirteen human mediums, advises the Dalai Lama on matters of public and religious policy. To witness the eerie spectacle of a medium entering a trance state and being possessed by the Oracle is to confront profound questions about the very nature of human consciousness.

Very interesting. I'll watch that again as there's an awful lot to digest in that hour video.

Thanx for the posting. :anjali:

I do not have the luxury of remaining on a distracted path.
