  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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.

  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    It actually means 'wandering' here, as in vagrant. Same meaning as 'planet' by the way.



    On both points, first the second: "consciousness is random electro-chemical soup".

    I haven't...
  11. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    All the visualizations of creation (conjugation) are as in yab-yum the being and his consort or the being and her consort. So the versions of root and tip follow this. But they don't follow the...
  12. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Okay, but when there is both a physical body and a clear body, and they are opposite genders, then the situation arises when one can be 'of both' at the same time. It is in that context when the...
  13. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Interesting. I wonder what the etymology of Yamantaka is, since it is YamAntaka so it can come apart as Yama antaka, and Yama can also mean to reign in as with a horse, which could yield Yamantaka...
  14. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    It is the 3-D version of a Sierpinski Triangle, made by taking a cube and removing the middle 1/9th from each side, and then from each of the sides of the smaller cubes that are left, and so on. ...
  15. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    Weird dictionary -- they relate the words to "Tocharian", which if one is looking at where these are located, is indistinct whether they really mean Tocharian as in Afghan, or Tocharian as in the...
  16. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    The imperial collections have boatloads of just about everything. The art collection is split in two, one half still in Beijing, the other in Taipei. There is so much art that the museum there...
  17. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    This is interesting. I have a lot of this mudra sometimes, this is an interesting way to think about what it is.



    Hence her name?
  18. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I don't have any feeling for the samadhi-vispassana debate, the two seem more overlapping than one as a prerequisite for the other. But I would also not have said one is more important than the...
  19. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    I had thought Pandaravasini is the consort of Amitabha.



    Isn't Usnisa by definition at the crown? Why the heart here?



    What is the mudra she is using in the picture? Prajnaparamita in...
  20. Re: Does Anybody Else Have Clear Body Experiences?

    This is exactly the visualization that Lama Yeshe has in his book as a preliminary to cleanse oneself before doing the Tummo he teaches, which starts with a visualization of Heruka Chakrasamvara and...
