Kuji-In? Hm?

Postby Jikan » Tue Aug 24, 2010 4:01 pm

:stirthepot:

Some of my acquaintance are involved to some extent with this group, Kuji-In,and their leader "Maha Vajra" or Francois Lepine. He claims to be a Buddhist Acharya on his facebook profile, but which tradition he trained in is anyone's guess. A link:

http://www.kujiin.com

What I notice immediately is how he's cashing in on certain mudra-like gestures. It's spiritual materialism writ large. I'm posting this in the Vajrayana forum in part to call this group out for misrepresenting matters (specifically their relationship to Buddhism), but also to ask people who practice intensively in Tibetan lineages to take a look and see anything specific to Vajrayana outside of Japan has been sucked into this scheme.

I'm certain there are earnest people involved in this group. I'm not trying to break their bones. On the contrary: it would be good if they found a home with an authentic teacher and a steady practice to work with. Here they are, down in the West Texas town of El Paso...

I am sorry for your friends but this isn't Buddhism.

As discussed previously on the former E-Sangha forum, Francois "Maha Vajra" Lepine does not have a legitimate claim to holding lineage in any esoteric Buddhist traditions, and has merely mixed up his own batch of what he's seen Shingon/Tendai Buddhists do.

In this video he claims to be PureLand Bishop with knowledge of Vajrayana.
I remember this being discussed on e-sangha as well.

By pure accident, I found this on youtube;

Would you mind disclosing when, where, and in whose auspices were you ordained as a Buddhist monk?

MahaVajra
Tradition: Hongaku Jodo. By: Ajari Sha Maku. Location: London, Ontario, canadian branch of Hongaku Jodo. Not monk, but priest. Monk = monastery, while priest = operates in the world. Ordained thru Pureland, but my studies are mostly Vajrayana.

I'm bumping this thread because this group seems to be changing their name: mahajrya?

http://www.mahajrya.org

This bit I found of interest:

Expectations (at least one)
* That you train daily
* OR that you promote the QBA
* OR Participate to research
* OR Contribute financially

I find this depressing, because as I said before, these kinds of programs have a way of drawing well-intentioned and otherwise street-smart people in. How is it that "too good to be true" can be such an effective sell?

Here's another one, by the way.

The Kuji-In techniques taught by Maha Vajra work. Using these mudras and mantras, my husband cured his prostate cancer. In 2000, the oncologist told us he'd be dead in 5 years because his cancer was so aggressive. He uses these techniques each day to keep himself healthy. There is no cancer. We can't criticize something that has these good results. Sometimes, we have to observe our definitions to see if we remain open-minded. Maha's teaching is effective even though some of his ways to do it are unconventional.

Hi all, I'm Shivani. I practice Mahajrya Buddhist Tradition since 7 years ago. I used to be in charge of a commercial department in a shipping agency worldwide famous, and I have a degree in Tourism. I'm from Spain and I'm 39.

I learnt Kuji-In with Maha Vajra, when I had a depression and it was over after a few weeks.

Years later, I had a cancer beginning in my reproductive organs, and practising Kuji-in and the Emotional Integration I learnt from him and the acharyas he has ordained, I'm healthy. Completely healthy.

No doubts to me, this is wonderful, but I'm also a very happy person, who practices, whenever I want, no one puts any pressure on me, and of course it's not Buddhism! It's a Buddhist Tradition, cause we practise some of the buddhist prayers, we also practise hinduism prayers, christian prayers....Cause it works, Cause it helps people.

Now I have a free mind. I use to be catholic, and I was always afraid of commiting sins...When you have a free mind, like we have in Mahajrya, and no one tells you what is good or wrong, but you are introduced to the virtuous, you train on your own welfare and understand about the others, we're all living beings with feelings and ego.

From there, how can I feel happy and free, if I belong to a religion, that tells me what is good to me, and what is not? Where's the freedom there?

But If you talk badly about someone or something, and you never experienced it...What basics do you have to talk about that? It's free to talk, but there are so many people out there, with really big problems, that some traditions, like this one, is available to support for the time the people want to, and then let them go, if that what they wishes. Mahajrya is design to become an autonomous being and even do not depend on Mahajrya, become responsible, and a great being. Cause that's also a universal law. Do you really own anything at all? Your body maybe? Not really not, you'll leave it behind some day.

For me, the best is to give my best to anyone, with compassion. I love Mahajrya and what Maha Vajra teaches, and with no doubt I will recommend to anyone to try it, and from there, they choose.

Free beings over all

I just wanted to express a brief opinion about Maha Vajra and the tradition Mahajrya.
I am a Yoga Teacher and a spiritual seeker for 10 years now, and I am in contact with Maha Vajra since more than 3 years ago. I don’t consider myself to belong to any group or tradition, but I must say that these last 3 years have made me learn a lot about myself, and have many spiritual experiences. Maha Vajra is a very special master, and has helped a lot of people to find themselves. His methods are not convenctional, that’s true, but work for sure…
When you don’t know him, it’s difficult to understand his teachings, but when you are able to see deeply, you cannot imagine how much Love spreads over those who are close to him.
Peace and hope you find your way of learning and growing, with respect and kindness about everything…
Blessings…

Dudes, I´ve been practising Kuji In as Maha Vajra teaches for more than 7 years. At the end is result what matters, what have I succeded in these years?:

-Teleportation of myself
-Bending space-time
-Change of Reality
-Trasmutation of matter
-Creation of matter from scratch
-Miraculuos healing
-An extraordinary amount of peace and freedom of suffering in my personal life.

If you practise Kuji-In you must know that Kuji-In, when practised with the appropiate state of being, gives you each of those supernatural abilities. The cool thing here is that I´m not the only one, there are now more than 50 of MahaVajra students that have succeded to create matter from scratch and hundreds that know how to trasmute matter easily.

If Maha Vajra didn´t have mastery over each seal, he could never have taught me how to do it myself and now I teach my own students who have the same results.

I recomend each of you finds your own truth about Maha Vajra teachings and not allow someone piss off to influence nor myself because of my good experiences with him. Be free, find your own truth.

Are you claiming to be able to teleport yourself, and to be able to teach others how to teleport themselves? That's impressive even by ShamWow! standards.

I haven´t develop mastery over teleportation but I´ve done it and understand how it works. Every supernatural ability requires training and keeping that training. Is like someone that goes to the gym, if he/she stops the training the muscle grows weak. I trained myself until I succeded teleporting me, then I moved to the next supernatural ability . So of course my muscle grew weak, however I proved to myself it is possible and that I know how to do it, and I know that if I was really interested I could do it again and gain mastery but it has not really use. Teleporting across countries is ilegal, you can´t cross a border without going through the customer and being registered and inside my city... I have a car!!! Rather than that I prefered developing the supernatural abilitie of compassion so people stop suffering close to me like my 2 Masters (Maha Vajra and Shakyamuni Buddha) taught me.

P.d. If kuji-in gives you the ability of teleportation and you believe/trust kuji-in then it means that some people at some point will have success. Why couldn´t I be one of those? That is one of the teachings of Kai, everything is made of Vajra, which includes you, me and everyone else.

We are all equals and there are not speciall or superior beings, it is all a matter of training and having the good tools/state of being.

Jikan, I think it's very unfair to compare mahavajra's teachings to a sham-wow. Your way off base here and it's bordering on offensive.

I have been the proud owner of a sham wow for a number of years and I will attest to the fact that it is a fabulous product that is both absorbent and easy to clean.
I'll put to you this way, the sham wow pretty much does what it claims to do.

Also:
Teleporting across countries is illegal because you didn't go through customs!
I love it!
