I think I remember hearing someone mention such a practice some years ago, but I can't find anything about it now.
Mawey Senge. One of the 12 manifestations of Guru Rinpoche from Tukdrub Barchey Künsel.

Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

Nagas are often associated with skin diseases, urogenital diseases, some cancers, some mental diseases, some epidemic diseases, and some chronic cachetic or wasting diseases. Pema Chopel, if you don't mind, could you please elaborate a little on this topic? If I understand correctly, you are both a...

Re: Dealing With Demons

I was curious about what different traditions of Buddhism say about "demonic" entities and how to deal with them. Parittas in Theravada, various sutras and dharanis in Mahayana, tonglen, sang & serkyem, various dokpa practices, chod, action mantas, etc in TB. Always been interested in learning abou...

Re: The Worship of Donald Trump

Now, in all fairness, I don't know much about Hinduism but it occurred to me that whenever they worship mahatmas or mahavatars, the guys in question are usually dead. Does RT knows something that we don't?

Re: The Worship of Donald Trump

There is a divine spark in every creature, according to Hinduism. Maybe this is what those guys are trying to worship. Or maybe they badly want the Green Card and they came up with this strategy after reading "The Art of the Deal"..

Re: Jerusalem syndrome

Would it be accurate to ascribe this type of madness to gyalpo provocation? Definitely a kind of provocation. Fascination with purity, etc., indicates devabhutagraha, i.e., possession by demonic devas. So, what could possibly induce the provocation? Are those devas offended in any way, do they have...

Re: Jerusalem syndrome

Would it be accurate to ascribe this type of madness to gyalpo provocation? Why not just say it has to do with the five poisons? Why is it that the gyalpos always get the rap? Of course, fundamentally it all comes down to the five poisons; in particular pride is the culprit when it comes to gyalpos...

Any ideas on this one? Preferably, a way without looking weird(no, prayer wheel fidget spinners haven't quite worked nor rapping chants).

Re: Charnel grounds

Doesn’t their practice somehow is a bit similar with Tibetan yogis? ( eg. everything is inherently pure, natural state - no fear or disgust ) ... I sometimes wonder if they can be liberated like this? I think at least some of them might have attained some realization akin to that of an accomplished...
