  1. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Yes, I read what you said about them on the other thread (the one about speaking languages). For that, perhaps it's okay, but for especially languages as far from English as Chinese, it's good at...
  2. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I've gotten the feeling over the past many months that it isn't always the same thing. It is sometimes like a complete substitute for my physical body, a body with similar attributes, and then there...
  3. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I have mixed feelings about the whole tulku system, but I would not be a bit surprised if the reason Niguma and Sukhasiddhi are seen as tulkus of Mandarava and Yeshe Tsogyal is because they worked...
  4. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    So here is the deal on Lao Tzu (Wade-Giles) or Laozi (pinyin): Someone penning under that name wrote in about 3-400 B.C.E. That was the time, during the Warring States period, when, "the hundred...
  5. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I need to learn some of these symbols. As for the points, this is something that has already been taught in some detail by the Dakinis.



    This is a good list for me, I will study it.

    I had...
  6. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Okay, if this is what you mean by mental only. I guess I find it confusing because it is not my normal mental state to be body-less or to be maybe illusory body, if that is what my clear body is,...
  7. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Okay, so several things.

    Spelling is important for Chinese transliteration because there are only 911 distinct pronunciations for all words in the Chinese language (mandarin). And there are...
  8. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I know what you mean here, but do also know that in places, such as the Avatamsaka sutra, this distinction of a "mental-only state" doesn't exist.



    Can you please see if spharśe might be...
  9. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    He's usually considered to be very high level, isn't he? That Niguma had communicated with Vajradhara directly was considered evidence that she had attained the 10th (at that time the highest)...
  10. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    What he specifically rejected was withdrawing from the world to cultivate oneself with yoga, by extension he did not approve of those who do, who make up a large number of those who found schools of...

    Re: How many languages do you speak?

    Sort of. Especially with Chinese, there are words for things in Chinese that there aren't in English and vice-versa.

    There are two things related to this that are interesting:
    1) When I was on...
  12. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    It has to be that Vajri is modified by the word before it. If one says (made up example) vajrachakra it means lightning or diamond wheel. If one said chakravajra it would have to mean the...
  13. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    When I was starting out with martial arts, there was an ideal called a gongfuren (in those days people didn't use pinyin, so then it would have been Kung-fu jen). Literally a man of gongfu, i.e. a...

    Re: How many languages do you speak?

    Is math being counted as a language?

    I speak English natively. I can speak Chinese (standard mandarin), and some French. I once studied (mostly forget) Russian, Japanese. I am still trying to...
  15. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    This is something new to me, having 'vajri' at the end, as the thing being modified, instead of 'vajra' at the beginning.



    Are there two more deity-consort pairs somewhere for the other...
  16. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I didn't have trouble seeing things before. I spent most of my career visualizing things, because I do geometry, including at times fractal geometry or geometry in high or infinite dimensions.
    ...
  17. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    The way it happens with me is not without effort, its just that the teachers are excellent, even if (as happened last night) the yell, "Act!" at me for hours while I feel like I'm coming apart at the...
  18. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Mandarava and Yeshe Tsogyal recruited abandoned girls as proteges, but for some reason they are always described as being found in charnel grounds. But given that a lot of charnel grounds were...
  19. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Wouldn't it have both these meanings instead of one or the other?





    I don't really have a choice. When the Phowa sequence happens during my shaking, my head become the transmission talked...
  20. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I knew someone who's parents tried to kill her because they had wanted a boy, they left her out in the hills, and her grandparents found her and brought her up. It had a major influence on her, as...
