More meat on the bone? Get a grip, Anne, he said he was already doing puja to a 'Shiva Lingam'. Whatever; it doesn't seem to be improving his disposition very much. Go figure. On 10/31/2013 10:48 PM, awoelfleba...@yahoo.com wrote: ---In fairfieldlife@yahoogroups.com, emptybill@... wrote:

We really need to cut emptybill some slack about this, Ann. He said his wife passed away - may she rest in peace. So, maybe that's a real tragedy, but why is he taking it out on me? I'm just trying to share information to make this group more interesting to read, unlike some others who seem

emptybill: I do the Pâñcharâtra Mahâ-Rudrâbhishekam. So, you're performing a daily Hindu sacrifice to the Rudra lingham, at the same time you're trying to practice under a Tibetan Buddhist Rinpoche? Where is Vaj when we need him? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pancharatra Why don't you read

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

You are incorrect - I've been teaching people how to meditate for forty years. I learned Zen meditation under Shunryo Suzulki. And, I've studied with three Tantra teachers. TM is just for beginners. In fact, I was one of the first Americans to practice Tantra under Tarthang Tulku back in 1967.
