If I was going to do something like that, I would have done it years ago.
But back to OBE....
I see absolutely no difference between certian types of phowa and the high level projection technique in Astral Dynamics, first edition. Even the purpose is the same, to access high level planes such as the heavens. And both involve essentially a crown center exit.
And also Dalai Lama mentions in realtion to these things, the ability to become a "perfect spy." If that is not OBE, I don't know what is.

Sure, if you want to listen to the screeds of a materialist raconteur who has decided to fall in line with Batchelorism.
I am done with this forum. Peace.

Have you heard of completion stage?

Not just Vajrayana?
I am still a buddhist who takes refuge in the Triple Gems.
OK. If you don't mind, do you identify with any particular Buddhist tradition? practice with a sangha, or at least participate in one?
I take refuge in the Triple Gems. And I also have a Mahayana aspiration to obtain perfect omniscient Buddhahood as fast as possible to help infinite sentient beings.
I try to explain to my Indian parents that Hinduism is a deviant heretical religion.

And Adintatha pushed his own faulty views on me, like he continuely does to Namdrol, which everyone is a witness of.
username wrote:Hi adinatha, no one's judging anyone and ultimately everyone is in change and not even fully known by themselves. Generally speaking in many occasions in history from ancient Greece and India till now, evading points put to one, circular arguing, apparently agreeing with opponents with a final dishonest clause that they are reaffirming one after all, changing subjects in a closed loop as the going gets tough, sophistry, repeating basic slogans with no new input, falsely thinking of oneself as superior and mercurial in method with some humor and more I could mention are quite well known tactics we all sometimes engage in. Ultimately these tactics do not do any good for anyone in the group and we will be even fooling ourselves specially with our intentions. We all sense Enochian is a good guy and currently a Mahayanist and I think he is too honest to set up a spiritual stall and will be fine. BTW I really admire your passion in that post and he has a good friend in you and don't get upset by his last post, he's a good friend in the long run. Also there are many Indian Buddhists doing good work already one can support.
