turq, that Puritanical, anti-body, anti-life streak runs so deep in some of us and goes back way farther than the Puritans. Notice how often FFL posters try to shame their enemies with sexual references. It's insidious to a horrifying degree. Ha, I'm on a mission now! On Friday, November

emptybill, thanks for taking the time to explain this in more detail. I think of space, etc. as simple so couldn't connect that to chaos. But maybe to primitive peoples the skies seemed very chaotic with changing weather patterns, etc. I like to imagine those moments when the first cave person

Apparently several people missed out on the tantric implications of the 'bad axel-hole' reference posted by emptybill. My question is: why would Uncle Tantra want to play a pun on emtybill's axel-rod with a comment about his own 'axel-hole'? Is this a dating site now? Go figure. On 11/13/2013

Thanks for the information, but Card already provided the definition of 'duHkham' from the Cologne Sanskrit Lexicon in his original post, so it looks like you're just making more stuff up and avoiding Card's question. Is the meaning of viveka approximately the same in yoga and

So, you don't know any Tibetan - I thought so. This has got to be one of the most misleading and silly answers to a simple yoga question I've ever read on FFL or a.m.t. You'd expect a guy that has spent almost his entire adult life studying with gurus and rinpoches to at least know one single

What would it take to get you guys to look something up before you post your message and waste our time and take up band space? Not all of us are here just to make fun of Hindus. Are there any serious writers on this forum - I mean other than an editor, a few coders, and a baker? I'm

Richard a prayer for you: Lord, please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference. PS Do you really want us to all post alike?! Why not enjoy the buffet that is FFL? On Wednesday, November 13,

It looks like you've posted the most insightful reply to Card's query. Good work, Share! Now this is funny, you've got to admit: a discussion group composed of numerous wise men (vivekins), tantrics, yogis, adepts, fakirs, and life-long seekers apparently didn't even know the primary word in

That makes sense, I guess, if you're trying to maintain a chariot. But, it doesn't tell us much about Yoga. There are just a few little-bitty points that I would like to clarify concerning the your definition. In the Bhagavad Gita, which forms part of the Mahabharata, it is the Buddhist
