If I wanted a topless woman to serve me beer I would just go to a strip club. At least the women there are being paid to show me their breasts and not just being jived with the (same old sexist) pseudo-spiritual b*llsh*t you just dished me up. What do you reckon the men were wearing at the aforementioned tsog?
It's like the Osho crowd: You want to have an orgy? Have an orgy! Why (try to) justify it by saying it is a (pseudo) spiritual trip?
So is that what we use Buddhism for? To justify our need to play "dress up" and perv on some "cleavage"?
Sad. Really f*ck*ng sad!
I think maybe I didn't make myself clear enough, sorry for the misunderstanding.
When we practice dharmakaya display during tsog or during an empowerment, it's both men and women, not just the women who are naked (and not everybody, as I mentioned, it's a choice). I'm not sexist. As for assuming that this practice is pseudo-spiritual b**ls**t there are, as I tried to convey, some precendents within vajrayana for nudity. For example in Tsultrim Allione's Women of Wisdom
Maching Labdron is found naked (up a tree in fact) by some folks and Allione explains this with the following: "The naked state of mind in its awareness of itself, not clothed with confusion, is sometimes expressed by a yogini's or yogi's literal nakedness. This also expresses going beyond conventional limitations... Machig has gone from a child prodigy to a naked yogini, who has gone beyond the constrictions of collective imperatives." p.213.
Now, although I wouldn't claim to have 'gone beyond' as Machig had, within the context of tantric practice we do, of course, attempt to 'bring the result into the path', so nakedness is certainly not an attempt to justify objectifying anyones body, whether female or male. Nor do the men 'want a topless woman to serve them' as you put it, this is a tsog practice, and afterall women can enjoy men's bodies as well, besides, it's not as though being a sexual predator is the default setting for men, I can be naked around someone and not be turned on or lurid.
Another reference to nakedness as a practice can be found in Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje's Mahamudra, the Ocean of Definitive Meaning
where it states "The practice of action has five aspects... For the yogic awareness discipline one stays - accompanied by a consort - in villages, the naked body only decorated with the six bone ornaments."
Anyway, sorry to have been the cause for upset.
All the best,
