Arrow Kindness of Others


I thought about how in my life all the things I take for granted depend on the work and kindness of others. As I sat in meditation, I thought: ‘I am in a house built by others, sitting on a cushion made by others, wrapped in a blanket sewn by others, listening to a sadhana sung by others, on an iPod made by others, using meditation techniques taught by others, thinking about objects explained by others, (wait for it) in a body produced by others, and experiencing the beneficial results of positive karma created in dependence upon others.’ It seemed at that moment that absolutely everything I had was produced by others, with almost no effort by me at all.



Altruism is a concern for the welfare of others. It is a traditional virtue in many cultures, and a core aspect of various religious traditions, though the concept of 'others' toward whom concern should be directed can vary among cultures and religions. Altruism is the opposite of selfishness.

The term altruism may also refer to an ethical doctrine that claims that individuals are morally obliged to benefit others. Used in this sense, it is the opposite of egoism.

Lightbulb Daimoku

The Daimoku is the first of the Three Great Secret Dharmas (Laws) (三大秘法) (J. sandai-hihō) revealed by Nichiren Daishonin. The other two being the Gohonzon, and the Kaiden (Precept Platform)...


The Lotus Sutra is held by Nichiren Buddhists, as well as practitioners of the Chinese Tiantai (T'ien-t'ai) and corresponding Japanese Tendai sects, to be the culmination of Shakyamuni Buddha's 50 years of teaching. However, followers of Nichiren Buddhism consider Myōhō Renge Kyō to be the name of the ultimate law permeating the universe, and the human being is at one, fundamentally with this Law and can manifest realization, or Buddha Wisdom (attain Buddhahood), through Buddhist Practice.

Broken down, Myōhō Renge Kyō consists of:

Myō (妙) meaning 'strange', 'mystery', 'miracle', cleverness',
Hō (法) meaning 'law', 'principle', 'doctrine',
Myōhō (妙法) meaning 'supreme (marvelous) law of Buddha',
Ren (蓮) meaning 'lotus',
Ge (華) meaning 'flower' and
Kyō (経) meaning 'sutra' or 'teaching'.


The seven characters na-mu-myō-hō-ren-ge-kyō are written down the centre of the Gohonzon, the mandala venerated by most Nichiren Buddhists.

Nichiren Buddhism is generally noted for its focus on the Lotus Sutra and an attendant belief that all people have an innate Buddha nature and are therefore inherently capable of attaining enlightenment in their current form and present lifetime.

Nichiren Buddhists believe that the spread of Nichiren's teachings and their effect on practitioners' lives will eventually bring about a peaceful, just, and prosperous society.

Quote:
"Those who practice the Lotus Sutra are pursuing through this single act of devotion - the mind that is endowed with all manner of fortunate results. These are present simultaneously and are not acquired gradually over a long period of time. This is like the blossom of the lotus that, when it opens, already possesses a large number of seeds". From this perspective, the Bodhisattva practice (cause) and the revealing of Buddhahood (effect) are inseparable: "Anyone who practices this Law [of the Lotus] will obtain both the cause and the effect of Buddhahood simultaneously"

Default Will Hay (Freemason)

There's a clip from Oh, Mr Porter! on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?...Djd_fi8&page=1
I made a comment there, about as normal a comment as anyone could make:
Quote:
During this film, at at 19mins 35secs, roughly, there is a good joke that youngsters might not get:
HAY: You should have come sooner!
FARMER MURPHY (a Freemason): I couldn't, my wife's had quinsy....
HAY: Like that woman in Canada?
The joke refers to the Dionne Quins. Quinsy is a disease of the tonsils. I couldn't hear it at first.
To my amazement, this banal comment enraged one giro-casher. He threw his hat onto the floor and bellowed:

Quote:
That isn't what he said. He said twinsies, as in twins. When Will Hay is faking the fire call to get the farmer to leave he asks "How's Mrs. Murphy and the twinsies?" gamewizard
But then, like one of those people on a bi-polar comedown, he gave in supinely:
Quote:
Oops, my bad, on further research it is Quinsies but it has nothing to do with tonsils. It is the birth of quintuplets that happened in Canada in 1934. Google for Dionne quintuplets. gamewizard
So to clarify the point, which I thought "gamewizard" still had not got, I posted this:
Quote:
The farmer is saying that his wife has had quinsy, which wikipedia says is Peritonsillar abscess, also called quinsy or abbreviated as PTA, is a recognised complication of tonsillitis.
He is not saying his wife had 5 children at once.
But Will Hay thinks that that IS what he meant. That's the joke. offrampt
This threw him into a carpet-biting frenzy:
Quote:
You are wrong. He clearly says How's the QUINSIES? on the telephone with Albert with an S at the end. Why would he put an S on the end of a word that is singular? gamewizard
and

Quote:
Another thing, quinsy as you call it, was never named after anyone. If he is referring to a mere tonsil infection, why would it be even be known in England? Is a tonsil infection in Canada really newsworthy in England? The birth of the first quintuplets to survive would have been tremendous news back then and the Dionne quintuplets were the first and it would have been known of world wide. Quinsy was known of long before the 1930s so the remark about the woman from Canada makes even less sense. gamewizard
and

Quote:
I just watched the scene for the third time today and the farmer himself even says QUINSIES with an S. Why would the farmer leave his pigs for over a month at the station if his wife merely had an abcess? Caring for a wife and 5 babies might justify leaving the pigs that long but a dental abcess would not. You are seeing a joke in that scene that does not exist. gamewizard
So I am meeting gamewizard for a BANFF (a Bare-Knuckle Fist-Fight) next Monday.

I expect to leave him suffering a rather severe quinsy of him own LOL.

Lightbulb Secrets of Supernatural Reincarnation


As a tulku nears death he (or she) may hint in writings or reveal signs, to those with the karmic proclivity, that will help determine his or her successor or next mindstream emanation. Sometimes, a tulku will leave a prediction letter or song describing where they will be found, sometimes adding various details about their future parents, the situation of their house and so on. If such details are lacking, the monks whose duty is to locate his reincarnation, resort to a lama-tulku astrologer (or tsispa) for directions. Prophecies, which may date forward or backward many generations, also play a role. The vetting of a potential successor often involves tests such as checking whether the child can recognize acquaintances or possessions from his previous life or answer questions only known to his former life-experience.


Reincarnation...the story of a scottish child


According to the book Magic and Mystery in Tibet by Alexandra David-Neel, “A number of objects such as rosaries, ritualistic implements, books, tea-cups, etc., are placed together, and the child must pick out those that belonged to the late tulku, thus showing that he recognizes the things that were his in his previous life."

You've seen your birth, your
life and death; you might recall
all of the rest — (did you
have a good world when you
died?) — enough to base
a movie on?


More or less, we're all afflicted with the psychology of the voyeur. Not in a strictly clinical or criminal sense, but in our whole physical and emotional stance before the world. Whenever we seek to break this spell of passivity, our actions are cruel and awkward and generally obscene, like an invalid who has forgotten to walk.

Cinema has evolved in two paths. One is spectacle. Like the phantasmagoria, its goal is the creation of a total substitute sensory world. The other is peep show, which claims for its realm both the erotic and the untampered observance of real life, and imitates the keyhole or voyeur's window without need of colour, noise, grandeur...

The red string is called a "protection and blessing cord." Traditionally, a lama ties a knot in the cord, then prays over it and blows the power of his mantra into it.

Bill is just then called on a housecall to the deathbed of the father of a now-engaged female friend...

Most people believe that death takes place when the heart stops beating; but this does not mean that the person has died, because his subtle mind may still remain in his body.



Death occurs when the subtle consciousness finally leaves the body to go to the next life. Our body is like a guesthouse and our mind like the guest; when we die our mind has to leave this body and enter the body of our next rebirth, like a guest leaving one guesthouse and travelling to another...


The Rosicrucian concept of the World Soul—the First Manifestation—corresponds to similar conceptions found, in various forms, in most of the ancient occult teachings of the several great esoteric schools of philosophy. In some philosophies it is known as the "Anima Mundi," or Life of the World, Soul of the World, or World Spirit. In others it is known as the Logos, or Word. In others, as the Demiurge. The spirit of the concept is this: that from the unconditioned essence of Infinite Unmanifestation there arose an Elemental and Universal Soul, clothed in the garments of the most tenuous, elemental form of Matter, which contained within itself the potencyand latent possibility of all the future universes of the new Cosmic Circle, or Cosmic Day. This World Soul is spoken of in the Second Aphorism as "The Germ within the Cosmic Egg," inasmuch as it is regarded as the tiny germ within the egg which gradually increases in size and complexity, and takes upon itself Form and Activity...



Later on...

Bill goes to meet his friend Nick at the Sonata Cafe; there he learns that Nick has a later engagement that evening where he must play the piano while blindfolded. Nick tells him about the beautiful women he glimpsed when the blindfold slipped at the last gig, allowing him to surmise some of the goings-on.



Bill presses for details. To gain admittance, one needs a costume, a mask and the password.

In Tibetan Buddhism and Bön, a rainbow body is a body made, not of flesh, but of pure light...The rainbow body is said to be the physical mastery state of Dzogchen of the Nyingmapa and the Bönpo where the trikaya (Nirmanakaya, Sambhogakaya and Dharmakaya) is in accord and the nirmanakaya is congruent with bodymind and the integrity of the mindstream to the heartmind) is realised as Dharmakaya.



Phowa is a Vajrayāna Buddhist meditation practice. It may be described as "the practice of conscious dying", "transference of consciousness at the time of death", "mindstream transference", or “enlightenment without meditation” .

The psychic winds that travel in the internal channels, or nadi of the subtle body and are manipulated in certain Vajrayana practices...

Specifically the five psychic winds that are a manifestation of the Mahabhuta. These five are the lifeforce that animate the bodymind of all sentient beings and are key to certain Tantric and Bon sadhanas...

"To penetrate these points means to gather there the energy-winds and the subtle minds that ride on them, basically by means of different types of absorbed concentration focused on these spots."

Arrow White & Red



The flag of Greenland was designed by Greenland native Thue Christiansen. It features two equal horizontal bands of white (top) and red with a large disk slightly to the hoist side of centre. The top half of the disk is red, the bottom half is white. The entire flag measures 18 by 12 parts; each stripe measures 6 parts; the disk is 8 parts in diameter, horizontally offset by 7 parts from the hoist to the centre of the circle, and vertically centered.

These drops are of two kinds: white drops, which are equated with the male seminal essence of semen; and red drops, which are equated with the female seminal essence of menstrual blood.
The white drops predominate at the crown chakra or ‘wheel of great bliss’, and the red drops predominate at the navel chakra or ‘wheel of emanation’.

Its local name in the Greenlandic language is Erfalasorput, which means "our flag". The term Aappalaartoq (meaning "the red") is also used for both the Greenlandic flag and the flag of Denmark. Today, Greenlanders display both the Erfalasorput and the Dannebrog often side-by-side. It is also the only Nordic flag without a Nordic Cross.

Tibetan Buddhism views the human body as consisting of a coarse body made of six constituent elements of earth, water, fire, wind, space and consciousness and also of a subtle body, or 'Vajra body', of energy-winds, energy-channels and energy-drops.There are many types of wind or 'subtle breath' that move along the invisible channels of the subtle body.

Lightbulb The Glesga Keelies




The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) is an infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the Queen's Division...The regiment was formed on April 23, 1968, as part of the reforms of the army that saw the creation of the first 'large infantry regiments', by the amalgamation of the four English fusilier regiments.On 23 April 1968 the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers was formed from the four English fusilier regiments. Each of these regiments were steeped in history and traditions which have been retained by the regiment today.As a fusilier regiment, the RRF wears a hackle, which in this case is the hackle of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, Red over White. This distinction was originally a white plume which His Majesty's Fifth Regiment of Foot had taken from the head dress of fallen French troops at St. Lucia in December 1778.



The Highland Light Infantry was a regiment of the British Army from 1881 to 1959. In 1923 the regimental title was expanded to the Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regiment)...Its exact status was a somewhat ambiguous one - although the regiment insisted on being classified as a non-kilted Highland regiment, it recruited mainly from Glasgow in Lowland Scotland.David Niven, who was a graduate of the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, was commissioned into the HLI as a subaltern. He claimed in his memoirs that he was dismayed at the appointment, as he dreaded the prospect of wearing trews, and had accordingly written "Anything but the Highland Light Infantry" on his choice of regiment form.


At the beginning of visualizing the Three Channels, one should know that the process of visualization consists of two practices...1. Seeing the Channels vividly, or forming a clear picture in the mind...2. Holding on to this picture.



The colour of the Central Channel should be visualized as the colour of the oil lamps’ flame. This whisper-given instruction is found in the Tantras ... however, before reaching this stage, the colour of the Right Channel should be visualized as Red, and the Left Channel as White, and the Central as Blue...

Lightbulb Quads

There are three kinds of beings known as protectors. They are called in Sanskrit, dharmapalas, lokapalas and kshetrapalas. That is, the powerful beings sworn to support and protect the Buddha's Doctrine, the worldly-protectors who guard the directions and the wealth of the world, and the regional or field-protectors. The latter are believed to be attached to physical surroundings such as the places we live...In architecture, a quadrangle (or colloquially, a quad) is a space or courtyard, usually rectangular (square or oblong) in plan, the sides of which are entirely or mainly occupied by parts of a large building. The word is probably most closely associated with college or university campus architecture, but quadrangles may be found in other buildings such as palaces...The word quadrilateral is made of the words quad (meaning "four") and lateral (meaning "of sides").



To lead fortunate disciples to the state of Buddha Heruka within one life, Buddha Vajradhara manifested his compassion in the form of interpretative Heruka, who has a blue-coloured body, four faces, and twelve arms, and embraces his consort, Vajravarahi. Attaining the state of Buddha Heruka depends upon abandoning the twelve dependent-related links of samsara by gaining the realizations of the four doors of liberation; and in particular it depends upon realizing the union of great bliss and emptiness. These are symbolized respectively by Heruka’s twelve arms, his four faces, and his embracing Vajravarahi.


"The heruka is a masculine deity, wrathful or semiwrathful, who represents the dynamic of compassion and skillful means in Tibetan tantra.


The name "Heruka" is made up of the prefix "he-" meaning "hey!" and "ruka", a rich term implying many levels of subtle meaning - richness, royalty, etc...Another interpretation Heruka literally means "blood-drinker," and in a tantric Buddhist setting this refers to drinking the blood of self-cherishing, doubt, and dualistic confusion. The tantric interpretation of the term heruka derives a further meaning: his nature is beyond conventional cause and effect, existence, and duality. He is the ultimate expression of the radiantly selfless qualities of the mind. Having drunk the blood, the heruka experiences bliss. He is fearlessly at home in the charnel ground, and under his gaze it is no longer merely charnel -- it is a palace.



"The heruka is depicted with nine classical moods (Kartap gu) which gives clues about his manifestation. He is said to be charming, with dazzling ornaments; brave, posing and strutting; threatening, with rolling eyes and a wrathful grimace; laughing, a raucous "ha ha"; fierce, with laughter that mocks, "hi, hi, hum, phat"; fearsome, grinding his teeth and brandishing a weapon; compassionate; with bloodshot eyes and radiant skin; outrageous, with gaping mouth and clicking tongue; and peaceful, gently gazing at the tip of his nose.** The heruka embodies the mountain-like presence of the enlightened masculine principle in Vajrayana Buddhism, with its range of fierce, hearty, and gentle qualities."

The eight Dharmapalas, Protectors of the teaching of the buddhas, have this appearance but in fact they are bodhisattvas -- embodiments of compassion that can manifest out of Emptiness to act in an extremely wrathful way for the sake of sentient beings.

It is possible that those who do not understand the deep meaning of Buddha’s Vajrayana teachings may feel uncomfortable with Heruka’s wrathful aspect. Such practitioners need to understand that all phenomena are equal in lacking inherent existence. In ultimate truth, emptiness, there are no wrathful or peaceful aspects because all phenomena are of one nature. Therefore, those who possess deep knowledge of ultimate truth have no basis for developing unpleasant feelings upon perceiving unattractive objects because they realize that ultimately there are no truly existent unattractive or attractive objects.

Lightbulb Vajra &


Vajra ( Tibetan རྡོ་རྗེ། dorje) is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond. As a material device, the vajra is a ritual object, a short metal weapon—originally a kind of fist-iron like Japanese yawara—that has the symbolic nature of a diamond (it can cut any substance but not be cut itself) and that of the thunderbolt (irresistible force).



In Buddhism the vajra is the symbol of Vajrayana, one of the three major branches of Buddhism. Vajrayana is translated as "Thunderbolt Way" or "Diamond Way" and can imply the thunderbolt experience of Buddhist enlightenment or bodhi. It also implies indestructibility, just as diamonds are harder than other gemstones.

In Tantric Buddhism (Vajrayana) the vajra and ghanta (bell) are used in many rites by a lama or any Vajrayana practitioner of sadhanas. The dorje is a male polysemic symbol that represents many things for the tantrika. The vajra is representative of upaya whereas its companion tool, the bell which is a female symbol, denotes prajna. Some deities are shown holding each the vajra and bell in separate hands, symbolizing the union of the forces of compassion and wisdom, respectively.


Vespa is an Italian brand of scooter manufactured by Piaggio. The name means wasp in Italian...On 23 April 1946, at 12 o'clock in the central office for inventions, models and makes of the Ministry of Industry and Commerce in Florence, Piaggio e C. S.p.A. took out a patent for a "motorcycle of a rational complexity of organs and elements combined with a frame with mudguards and a casing covering the whole mechanical part"...One of the best-loved models was the Vespa 150 GS introduced in 1955 with a 150 cc engine, a long saddle, and the faired handlebar-headlamp unit. Then came the 50 cc of 1963, and in 1968 Vespa 125 Primavera became one of the most durable of all.

Lightbulb K Hem

Hemis is a town in India 40 km southeast of Leh in Ladakh, well known for the Hemis monastery that was established in 1672 AD by king Senge Nampar Gyalva. Hemis is best known to tourists for the colorful festival held in July. Hemis also could be associated with the Hemis National Park, an area that is home to the endangered snow leopard.


Hemis Monastery already existed before the 11th century. Nāropā, the pupil of the yogi Tilopa, and teacher of the translator Marpa was connected with this monastery. A translation of Naropa's biography has been found in Hemis monastery.In this manuscript Naropa (or Naro) meets the "dark blue" (Skr.: nila: dark blue or black) Tilopa (or Tillo), a tantric master, who gives Naropa 12 "great" and 12 "small" tasks to do in order to enlighten him to the inherent emptiness/illusoriness of all things.



Khem (also spelt Chem), the Egyptian word for "black"...The Egyptian hieroglyph for "black" in Gardiner's sign list is numbered I6. Its phonetic value is km. The Wörterbuch der Aegyptischen Sprache-(Dictionary of the Egyptian Language) lists no less than 24 different terms of km indicating 'black' such as black stone, metal, wood, hair, eyes, animals and people...Min is an Ancient Egyptian god whose cult originated in predynastic times (4th millennium BC). He was represented in many different forms, but was often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail.

Default Native americans & traditional masonic ritual

Here is a fascinating article:
http://www.freemasonrytoday.com/news...masonic-ritual

Quote:
...The ritual was a portrayal of the US ceremony based on the Scottish Rites. Conducted in two parts, the first in working dress, and the second in Native American dress, prayers were offered in the form of a chant in Choctaw, a language common to the tribes of Oklahoma.
Peace be upon them!

WOW!!! This thread is waayyyy above my head!

But it appeals to me on several levels.

Years ago I did a lot of traveling and spent several months in Nepal and Tibet, and have always had a deep love of these spiritual places, and lovely people!
I only know a little about Bhuddism but I would be frequently "drawn" to monestaries where Monks were chanting, sit quietly at the back and just let the sounds wash over me...it was unbelievibly relaxing, and somthing I have not expierenced since! However, I would certainly not discribe it as "black magic"...if I am honest here I would not know black magic if it smacked me over the head with a baseball bat!!
Also as far as my meager knowledge goes, Hitler persecuted freemasons, so much so during the war masons were pushed underground, and developed the symbol of the forget-me-not as a badge of recognition. As a point of interest Hitler also brought in the worlds first smoking ban, and also banned his SS henchmen from drinking alcohol and being with women.
And "durgas" not heard of these before, except that there is a Tibetian deity called Durga. If memory serves he is an evil spirit.
To me, what is descibed here sound more akin to the "Djinn" of near east culture. These fire spirits can be good or evil. However, make a very interesting study subject. The Djinn almost certainly scared the pants off the army of Alexander the Great!
Twin Peaks?
Not sure about this because I only watched one episode and switched the tv off. Utter rubbish in my opinion...but my hubby likes it, so some strange reason.
Red hats!
I thought a "red hat " was a computer hacker!
You have opened my masonic unelightened eye with this one!
I honestly never knew this symbol of the French Reveloution was used so much! Not sure why though? I shall forever be looking at Santa Clause with a new, suspicious eye now!
Lastly, and in my own expierence on my 44 years on this planet, there is good and evil, everywhere, if you look for it. There are evil religous leaders, and folks in power all over the world and freemasons are not immune to the influence of some evil people...My uncle resigned from UGLE after a bottle of Malt scotch he brought in for a charity raffle was stolen. He resigned, saying he could not sit in a Lodge of thieves, and I agree with him!
Then there are failed or disillusioned freemasons, with an "agenda"...of these people I am of the opinion that they joined masonry to see what our "secrets" are about, and who want to practice dark things, and when they find nothing but good and gentleness in our principles, they get bored, and hence vent this bordem with malicious, clandestine tongues!
Anyway, thanks for this thread!
Lots of food for thought here!
