Re: Subduing and Oath Binding

The only demons you have to subdue are your own inner demons. By putting them under oath means you redirect those energy in a positive way. Tantra is about transformation. If you conquer anger you conquer all ennemies. It is a famous quote. Changing others way of believing or their religion so they ...

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Refuge Vow

That is great, thank you. I never took a « formal » refuge ceremony with hair... as with empowerment i know refuge and bodicitta are included. I am fully conscious of this, and give all my intention into it. Those who separate refuge and empowerment as if they were different, i don’t get it but what...

Re: Equivalent to thogal

Mantra (sound) creates yantra (form). Sound is vibrations. It transforms matter and put you in alignement with certain forces in the universe. It is physics. I have seen experiments of how sound impacts form. It is impressive. Mandala can be formed this way. Sound can carry information. Form also ca...

Re: Not being attached to giver, gift, recipient

The universe makes the offering through you, The universe receive the offerings through the recipient. This is made for universal welfare. By seeing the universe in all actions you become universal.

Re: Avoiding the heaven realms

This kind of heaven realm is not far away. It is an internal state. When someone has very good conditions, all kind of pleasures and also full of egotism, spending time and energy only to satisfy pleasures, unaware of other people, without generosity, without discipline, in self-centerdness, this is...

Re: Deity as Yidam, Protector, Guru, etc.

My perceptions if it can help you : The Yidam are quiet « general ». They will help you, more as a consequence of connecting with their beneficial energies. Protectors can act for specific tasks. They can do very specialised tasks, help you also in your personal life (depending on the protectors of ...

Re: Prayer? How does Buddhist prayer work?

Generating money is neutral. But it is a power, a potential. If you use it for bad activity you generate bad karma. If it’s just for your pleasure you waste opportunities. If it generates good things it creates good karma. If you have light in you, « gold » will be of benefits in your life. You can ...

Re: Brief Sang Offering - transmission needed or no

I was not talking about you. I am not angry. Just a general comment. I find you very respectful. The idea to offer to the three Jewels and make aspiration « may it benefits... » seems very good. Less simple is not less powerful. The more you align your frequency with boddicitta, the more powerful yo...

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

Japanese have a specific mindset. Authorities won’t listen to you because you are wise. Monks can have deep sectarism. When a « prophet » needs to change everything, he will makes a lot of enemies. In this « samurai anger », many words are said and idea expressed. Words in anger are always excessive...

Re: Wish-fulfilling jewels(mantra?) and prostrations.

There are two kind of renunciations. One is to renounce wordly activities, and that is what some yogis does, in the mountain, in hermitage, just doing meditation. The other, is renonciation through action. You keep doing things : working, family... but you renounce the fruits of the action, that is ...

Re: How do you render negative thoughts unharmful?

Breath. When something bring fear, tension, we tend to stop breathing. Keep breathing. Let what scare or annoy you flow through you. Once you stop controlling it, resisting it, it will go.

If a thought never leave after some time, there is great chance you are fighting against it.

Re: Copper Colored mountain location?

Physical places are used to describe pure land. But pure land is totally inside. We die every second, and we born every second. To reborn in a pure land is to reborn into truth. You live in a state of consciousness full of potential. Unless you find a pure land inside, there is no chance to connect ...

Re: Correction: 12/20 is Nine Bad Omens Day

I met a yogi who did very dangerous motorcycle ride on a year where astrologically he was supposed to die (announced by qualified astrologers).

He went through. He reversed the curse. He did not die.

Power of the mind.
