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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQ1VvvrA ... ure=fvwrel

Very interesting. I'll watch that again as there's an awful lot to digest in that hour video.
Thanx for the posting.
Now having obtained a precious human body,
I do not have the luxury of remaining on a distracted path.

"Despite the fact that we are a ceaselessly transforming stream, interdependent with other beings and the whole world, we imagine that there exists in us an unchanging entity that characterizes us and that we must protect and please. A thorough analysis of this reveals that it is only a fictitious mental construct".
