    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Well, I think that is a pretty good way of looking at it, like a center between extremes, Prajna and Caritas are both going to cancel extremes.

    The remark I would make is that it is Sutra based...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Yes, mainly so. That is what I am noticing. Karuna has a lot to do with Dharma Speech.

    If you collate a handful of things so you have any basis on which to speak of Prajnaparamita, how would you...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I will have to spend some more time in getting to all of this, but, I don't want make it seem like I am generally hostile. I am in some kind of trial which challenges Upeksha, which is why I am glad...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    not, I guess, yet.

    So in the example where we allow Kurukulla the role of developing nectar, like a "loop" of the ascending or inbound forces through the Jewel with Indra Jala,...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    A couple more thoughts came up, somewhat repetitive, and partly because we cannot search for a post but only a thread.

    It is rather intriguing that a Dakini would press "upaya" as a means of...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Haha, no, that is not what they meant.

    They meant I don't have to even think about liking apples since a steady stream of devotees bring me apples. It is lazy beyond lazy. In the fifth sub-plane,...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I am not sure it is all that complex, it simply seems to be progressed, so on the one hand, there is Inner Bliss arising, and, on the other, sentient beings are being benefitted by one's presence....

    There are multiple ways to interpret the "root of all these tantras". [/QUOTE]


    Here I misspoke slightly. It should have been "root of all these sadhanas". I was getting at what Mipham said:

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Yes.

    I honestly believe too much talk about higher planes and tenth or twelfth dimensions is misleading, because, for just about anyone who is not an Arhat, Kama Loka is probably the most...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Ah, well, when we get down to Coma level, that is something else. How "off" and "unwakeable" the body is. But for most personal experience, we would tend to say, I might be asleep and dreaming, or,...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Yes, that is what the Mahamudra catechism says, it is a state beyond words.

    Daringly, there are a few descriptions.

    I am not fond of New Age. I could probably reasonably claim to have attempted...

    I would say that is a bit of a "long run".

    We are not exactly talking about an experiment picked up by a young person and an attempt with questionable results. This is after decades of...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    My question would be if there is a "known condition" that is to be avoided, what do I do about the regular occurrence of Deep Sleep?

    The meditative Voids are the same thing that is said to happen...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    On this, we should perhaps say "some" Hindu sects claim Buddha as an avatar.

    This is sometimes viewed as "fence-mending propaganda" since the whole point of Buddha is that he is not an avatar, and...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Perhaps. What does Buddha say that would indicate so?

    As far as caste and everything about institutions, yes, probably contra, but as far as the inner meaning of yoga, not as much. For example, he...

    I looked at this again recently in terms of an Orthodox Priest who was distinguishing Christianity from Buddhism.

    In his view, the goal of Buddhism is cessation of suffering, in kind of a...

    The Formless realm is a weird subject.

    The body-less lattice of everything connected to everything has no separate spaces, it has one unlimited space.

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    This probably is correct on both counts, we are dealing with a body-less Nirvana which one does not want to leave, and a command that we release this state and move out to help others. And so it is...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    It is sticky since Buddhists are trained to vehemently deny "atma"--except it appears in the majority of sadhanas.

    It is usually something like "I/myself", so "my" real nature is emptiness...
