I understand that you'd like to assign their creativity to their
practice of TM, but isn't what you're asking in the same
ballpark as asking, How long had Dr. Harold Bloomfield,
once a 'poster boy' for the TM movement, been meditating
before he started drugging his female patients and molesting
them?

I mean, if TM is the cause in one case, why isn't it in the
other?

Supposedly they met Marshy in 1967, they started work on St. Pepper's in 1966 
and it was released in June of 1967, so they had not done TM at all when they 
recorded the tracks for the album.

From what I've read, TM practice and the use of bijas comes from 
the tradition Sri Vidya, and not from the Rig Veda. The Sri Vidya 
is a tantric sect, purportedly founded by Shankaracharya. Swami 
Brahmananda Saraswati was a member of the Sri Vidya - all the 
Saraswati sannyasins are headquartered at the Sringeri matha.


Swami Krishnanda Saraswati:

SBS's guru, Swami Krishanand Saraswati, was from Sringeri. The 
primary symbol of the Sri Vidya is the Shri Yantra with the TM 
bijas inscribed thereon. There are fifteen bija mantras listed in 
the Soundarylahari, some of them are TM bija mantras, according to 
James Duffy. But, there are in fact sixteen bijas listed in the 
Sounda, the last one used for advanced practice.


So, it's obvious that TM adherents should be looking to the 
Tantras, such as the 'Saundaryalahari' for the origins of TM, not 
the to the Vedas. The Rig Veda has little to say about yoga 
practices such as 'TM'. The Rig Veda is based on sacrificial 
rituals, dedicated to appeasing the celestial beings that control 
the forces of nature, such as earth, wind and fire, etc.


The demi-gods, such as Krishna, Vasudeva, Balarama, and Ramchandra 
are deified heros of Indian mythology.

 Look, it is becoming clear that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was one of the larger 
cultural revolutionaries of the 20 Century who angled to bring affective broad 
cultural change to all humanity. In his case ranking as revolutionary, his 
fusing western science with old systems of human spirituality he waged a 
remarkable broad fronted multiple prong impact on human condition in his 
lifetime; a revolutionary in that he tried, expected, to affected change in the 
order of everything cultural through his development of and propulsion in 
revolutionary action a fusing the practice and thinking of the modern science 
of Unified Field theory with a practice of total spiritual condition of human 
life. His impact was as broad as it was huge in human culture everywhere.

Once again, let's review some of the netiquette protocols for posting 
messages to discussion groups:


We don't endorse the 'caste system' which has individuals classed 
according to their birth circumstances. This is considered to be bigoted 
and prejudiced malice toward a particular person or group according to 
what part of the world they are born into, their race, religion, gender, 
or their place of origin or current residence. These kinds of statement 
should be avoided when posting to discussion groups. Most of us don't 
care if you're from Canada or not, but down here in the U.S., we are 
trying to become equals under the law. Go figure.


1. Try to make yourself look good on the internet.

Note: As in the world at large, most people who communicate online just 
want to be liked. Networks -- particularly discussion groups -- let you 
reach out to people you'd otherwise never meet.

Barry stooped to the old guilt by association ad hominem fallacy.

But why would Barry want to associate Card with Harold Bloomfield? Not 
only was Barry's comment an irrelevant red herring, but it was downright 
nasty with some shades of Vaj mixed in with it. It's bad enough to 
equate Bloomfield's actions with your average TMer, but Card hasn't 
presented any suspicion that he's involved with raping any women. Barry 
should apologize to the entire group or leave, in my opinion.


If we all followed Barry's logic, we could associate most of the things 
Barry does with his teacher Fred Lenz who has been accused of some 
pretty nasty behavior.

I understand that you'd like to assign their creativity to their
practice of TM, but isn't what you're asking in the same
ballpark as asking, How long had Dr. Harold Bloomfield,
once a 'poster boy' for the TM movement, been meditating
before he started drugging his female patients and molesting
them?

I mean, if TM is the cause in one case, why isn't it in the
other?

George Harrison was interested in meditation and classical Indian music 
before he met MMY, as evidenced from his compositions 'Norwegian Wood' 
on the Rubber Soul album, which features the sitar, which was recorded 
in October 1965. There are numerous Eastern gurus featured on the album 
cover art for Sgt.Pepper's.

On the contrary, Sgt. Pepper was critically acclaimed upon release and 
won four Grammy Awards in 1968, one of the world's best selling albums. 
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles is the good example 
of what is typically cited by serious critics as the best album of all 
time by Rolling Stone Magazine.


You sure you've listened to these albums? You recent posted that you've 
never listened to a single Ledd Zeppelin album all the way through. Go 
figure.


Remind me to take your opinions of rock bands and rock musicians with a 
little grain of salt. Apparently you didn't realize that Jimmy Page of 
Ledd Zeppelin was listed #3 on the Rolling Stone list of the 100 
greatest guitar players and you were telling me that Stevie Ray Vaughan 
was not as good as Hendrix. LoL!

The biography to read will be the one Jane Asher publishes when Paul McCartney 
kicks the bucket (and if that's what it takes to stop him singing bring it on). 
Jane was Paul's girlfriend from 1963-68 which would include the Beatles' early 
drug experimentation and the trip to India to sit at the feet of Maharishi. 
Should be quite a colourful tale. I'm assuming she hasn't penned it yet out of 
respect to Paul's privacy.

I've mentioned it here before but I also knew someone who worked at  the 
Leeds Music in Paris in the 1960s and said the Beatles bought some of 
their songs.  That was NOT an uncommon practice back then.  I had a 
cousin who sold some songs to a music publisher.  And the publisher of 
my 60's group records put a fictitious name on a song I actually wrote.


I would also suspect that their tunes were a little weak when George 
Martin began producing them and he probably taught them how to compose 
better.  Many amateurs (who don't have serious musical training) tend to 
write songs that have a poor arc.  It's actually fairly easy to correct 
that.

Strangely enough, something similar. In Bob Dylan and Richard

As I remember the story, Steven wrote the song and taught
it to David. They worked on harmonies for it, but David 
always thought that it needed a third voice. 

So they go over to Joni Mitchell's house, and there they 
meet for the first time this guy from England who they 
really only know as the voice of The Hollies. And things
progress and get wild and wooly the way things got back
in those days of Laurel Canyon house parties, and at 
some point Steven and David start to sing Helplessly
Hoping, which of course no one has heard before. 

On the second verse, David heard Graham Nash join
in, singing the *exact* third harmony part he had 
written in his head. And the rest is history.

 I'm gonna go with Bhairitu's answer above; they were
 just creative to start with.
 
 As for increased creativity, however, most serious rock
 critics consider their two previous albums (Rubber Soul
 and Revolver) to be better than Sgt. Pepper. I know
 I certainly do.
 
 
 
 Revolver was also heavily indebted to the Fab Four's LSD initiation.
 Tomorrow Never Knows was a full-on attempt to recreate the immersive 
experience of LSD with lyrics borrowed from Timothy Leary's Tibetan Book of the 
Dead-inspired writings.
 
 'Got to Get You into My Life' was about pot, claims McCartney. I (as did John 
Lennon) consider it more likely to be about Paul's first acid trip. Consider 
the lyric: I took a ride, I didn't know what I would find there / Another road 
where maybe I could see some other kind of mind there.
 She Said She Said is a song written by John Lennon who described it as an 
'acidy' song with lyrics inspired by actor Peter Fonda's comments during an 
LSD trip in 1965 with members of the Beatles and the Byrds.

[FairfieldLife] RE: TM in the Tantras

2013-10-31 Thread emptybill
What a fucking idiot you are. 
 

 When my teacher came to my house he talked around and had kind and sage advice 
for my daughter, She like him very much. He then 

 wanted to look around so I gave him the tour. When he got 

 to my sadhana room and looked at the large altar (set down
 low - Hindu style) and he saw the traditionally carved Shiva Lingam 

 surrounded by small rudraksha-a and covered with flower blossoms.
 Surmounting it were large hand-painted Thankas of various Vajrayana Yidam and 
Dharma protectors ... like Ekajâti and Rahula. 

 

 He pointed at the Lingam and said Oh - Original Tantra! That was 2005. He 
asked questions about it and about what practice I did. I told him I didn't do 
a daily abhisheka but rather did it as desired ... kamya
 ever since my wife died. I queried him further and he confirmed ... 

 Yeah - not Buddhist but still good Tantra. He even considers Sankhya to be 
very close in its conclusions and metaphysics to Dzogchen. 

 

 All this just show how shallow your ideas are ... fool.

 What else to expect from a mere book reading Troll.

 No offense intended, but I don't think that He's A Rebel qualifies
as Motown.  It's more of a Phil Spector thang.  :-)

As Pure Motown goes, it's hard to top Smokey.

 Still tripping on Crosby, Stills and Nash after discovering

 As I remember the story, Steven wrote the song and taught
 it to David. They worked on harmonies for it, but David 
 always thought that it needed a third voice. 
 
 So they go over to Joni Mitchell's house, and there they 
 meet for the first
 time this guy from England who they 
 really only know as the voice of The Hollies. And things
 progress and get wild and wooly the way things got back
 in those days of Laurel Canyon house parties, and at 
 some point Steven and David start to sing Helplessly
 Hoping, which of course no one has heard before. 
 
 On the second verse, David heard Graham Nash join
 in, singing the *exact* third harmony part he had 
 written in his head. And the rest is history.

Re: [FairfieldLife] RE: TM in the Tantras

2013-10-31 Thread Richard J. Williams

So, you speak some Tibetan.

You are doing the Rudrâbhishekam for what purpose? For purification, 
acquisition, or for preparing the mind to accept voidness? Go figure.


According to H. von Glasenapp, tantrism was originally Hindu, but this 
view has long since been abandoned: The contemporary view is that 
Buddhist tantrism preceded Hindu tantrism (Bharati p. 109).

 Rubber Soul was their best album although I certainly loved the White Album 
too. As a 9 year old kid I knew every song, every word of Rubber Soul. I 
would simply listen to it time after time in the living room and sing my little 
heart out.

 Revolver was also heavily indebted to the Fab Four's LSD initiation.
 Tomorrow Never Knows was a full-on attempt to recreate the immersive 
experience of LSD with lyrics borrowed from Timothy Leary's Tibetan Book of the 
Dead-inspired writings.
 
 'Got to Get You into My Life' was about pot, claims McCartney. I (as did John 
Lennon) consider it more likely to be about Paul's first acid trip. Consider 
the lyric: I took a ride, I didn't know what I would find there / Another road 
where maybe I could see some other kind of mind there.
 She Said She Said is a song written by John Lennon who described it as an 
'acidy' song with lyrics inspired by actor Peter Fonda's comments during an 
LSD trip in 1965 with members of the Beatles and the Byrds.
