    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    In thinking of the first, it suggested the three natures or natureless-nesses of Yogacara, but I am not sure. The intent of the first sounds the same, No Ego or Nairatma, but of the others I am not...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    The odd use of Samantabhadri was an interpretation, based in the Nepalese source which calls female Samantabhadra by the term Sita Tara.

    This pattern seems fairly close to what the reviewers of...

    This has all been rather quiet lately, perhaps from another American drawdown in Iraq.

    Unfortunately the insightful journalist Andre Vitchek has passed away in suspicious circumstances in Turkey....

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Well, I think you can do that. It does not come from the Abhidharma in any way that I can think of, but, you have a meaningful triangle that would like a way to express itself.

    Usually in the...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Offhand, I do not see much in Sadhanamala that would reflect three simple commands, dissolve, decay, decompose.

    Those could have long lists of synonyms, based on Vyava, Nrtti, or Ksaya, and so of...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    First of all, I made an error, seeing that the sadhanas were attributed to Sahara I thought she was misspelling Saraha, but, it is "bad internet copy" for Sabara.

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    In terms of the most basic Vairocanis, there is a pre-marital Kurmapadi, and Sadhanamala 227.

    The one solo Varnani appears to be SM 225.

    Between them is a "snap-fit" design, which adds Armor,...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I believe that name change is an erroneous convenience, or guesswork.

    Varnani probably does lean closer to "color", how it is applied to layers or shapes, and has been confused with alterations of...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Trying to squeeze more from the Vajrayogini notes and appendices.

    It is stated there are only six Vajravarahi texts in the Tibetan canon, two of these being Cinnamasta. So it is considerably less...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    There seem to be two strands of interpretation, one of which seems to say that Samantabhadra is in Vajrasattva Family. But there is another that equates him to Vairocana Family, which is what I...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    So I think it is more responsive to Unstruck Sound--Anahata, which regulates the Heart.

    This means the sound is "not produced" by anything, it is self-arisen or swayambhu.

    Here is a blend of...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I was looking for a pattern of the forty-six Vajravarahis of the Guyhasamajasadhanamala (GSS).

    It is not terribly difficult, there are only a few kinds.



    In full assemblies, Vajravarahi is...

    Hard to be sure. I have tried to scan the piece as to any indication how or why milk is involved, and, so far, it is a riddle.

    Some of the rest of your reply is why I cannot say much about Citta...

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    It is Milk in this one particular sadhana. Calling it Prayoga is like calling something Krama, any deity could do it, this is the Prayoga of a specific example which is not a normal practice--no japa...

    Elizabeth English says Vajravarahi as hog face arises from the retinue in Krishna Yamari tantra (Charchika, Varahi, Sarasvati, Gauri), since the commentator reveals:

    Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Yes, practically any change to a deity is an additional meaning, a further attribute, a deeper and more profound level. That is why I say there are "patterns" underlying the many sadhanas. For the...

    There are "Kalpoktam" deities and pujas, from Nava Durga, to Sani--Saturn, to Kurukulla and Marici. I did not think it was a compound, since Kalpa famously...

    Yes, as subjects, I believe these Blues are related.

    With Manjushri, he "meets" Blue Sarasvati in his Tiksna or "Sharp" form, which is that kind of sharp tongue that can end disputes quickly.
