Re: Reminiscences of Penor Rinpoche's Terrible Tulkus -- Burroughs and Seagal

There is a lesson for everyone in Pednor Rinpoche's recognition of Steven Seagal as "Chundrag Dorje," a Nyingma terton who discovered ritual objects, sacred pigments, and hidden teachings over a hundred years ago, and remains a revered saint in the Palyul Nyingma pantheon of which Pednor Rinpoche is...

Re: Shanté Paradigm Smalls August 2nd Post-Retreat Reflections

Posted here below are what could be salvaged from the Sham Sub. I cannot image what Prof. Smalls found problematical about this thread. Some very tame spitwads thrown her way.

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts / Tsu-do Zen v.2.0

Recently, I had occasion to remember this fanciful piece of religious imposture that I first published on January 1st, 2002. The occasion was that the research we've been doing over the last year or so leads to the inevitable conclusion that all religious lineages of today, however much they claim t...

Re: Inventing Enlightenment / Indian Monotheism -- a European Creation

In the history of the Western romance with “Eastern Philosophy,” innovative ideas often masquerade as ancient doctrines, fulfilling the fond hopes of Western spiritualists, theosophists, and table-tappers everywhere, for the “discovery” of ancient, pre-Christian scriptures that would reveal the outl...

Re: Random Spiritual Thoughts

I don't see why we can't consider this a personal matter, and leave it to our own musings and wonderings, while in real life, we concern ourselves with real life things.
