  1. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

    This link could be of use. Although it is a Sokka Gakai source I think the translations of Nichirens writing could be of use to you. I don't have much experience with Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. I usually stayed away from it as it seemed weird to me and I disliked the chanting ofr wealth etc. I personally think Tara is way better.
  2. BON What are your favorite practices?

    Not a Bön practitioner, although I had the luck to receive some teachings through webinars with Chamthrul Rinpoche. I want to just stop by and say how happy this thread has made me. Especially that you practice Guru Yoga. Really, there is nothing better to do. I am very glad to read this thread. Good luck you guys. Also some personal exp. Ngöndro is always a good idea, it might seem a lot, but if possible, definetly worth it.
  3. Frugivore (homosapiens natural state)

    Might be relevant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnUx7hyk8rk
  4. meat eater to vegetarian

    B12 in nature is produced by bacteria. Cows get it from eating dirt and feces, tigers get it from cows. It is probably also present in water as the bacteria is probably there too so also water, however now we have sterile water (thanks to which we also don't die of nasty diseases). So if you are in a nature yes its either shit and dirt or meat. However, we are no longer in nature are we?
  5. Definetly, I have just wondered whether the effects can be similar or overlaping.
  6. What about Zhan Zhuang and qigong movements? Shouldn't those help replenish?
  7. Tantra, daoism and sahaja

    There are some academic theories that Tibetan trulkhor is the source of Indian yoga and not the other way around as was assumed. Partially based on the fact that Tibetan texts are so much older than the Indian ones and other examples. It is very interesting how much influence there probably was during the centuries. Zen seems to be quite influenced either by daoism or by esoteric buddhist teachings and etc. However, as fun as it may be it is better to study them separately. The whole idea that all roads lead to one finish line can do often more harm than good.
  8. TCM - vegetarianism

    Thanks for the reply Aetherous! Is there some herb (mixture) that can be taken from time to time by relatively healthy individual? My friend ex-tcm practitioner recommended some mixture that could help with yin and could be taken by people to strengthen them, but I forgot the name. Also qigong could theoretically help balance these right?
  9. TCM - vegetarianism

    @Desmonddf Is there some other food except for meat that is a good tonic for liver, yin, qi and blood? Its a shame you seem to have only "bad" experience with vegan patients. As far as I know the diet is actually pretty sustainable longterm (at least from the western perspective) and its easy too.
  10. TCM - vegetarianism

    Hey, what is the stance of TCM practitioners and qigong people on vegetarianism and veganism? Western science seems to say that meat is not really that much needed, so I am quite interested to see what TCM thinks, hat are the effects on the body and if it is stable for long term living. I am especially hoping for @Desmonddf's and @Wu Ming Jen's replies as I often find myself enjoying your posts. But please everybody feel free to pitch in.
  11. Buddhist Practices vs Taoist Practices

    I dunno, honestly I'd say that the main difference is in the view, methods and fruit. Some may say that both just use different words describing the same thing. That might be possible, however I am very sceptical towards that.
  12. Lord of Death

    Death is coming? Well quite frankly it can't do me worse things than life has done. Soo I'll be here drinking tea and enjoying some butter biscuits and getting a head, while you run buddy. There is no running away from the death, buddy. But damn biscuits and bjs are not so out of reach if you are polite, handsome and/or have money.
  13. LoneMan Pai

    Its a "I can't believe somebody is doing this seriously" wow. I think it is mostly parlor tricks compared to the real "magick" and that is mind transformation. But hey that is just me being too buddhist.
  14. Semen Yang Energy and oral transfer.

    Dunno, I have never felt energyzed after doing it. Might not work for guys ... but as I know both positions I know very well that though it might not be leading you to a longer life it definetly is appreciated by the receiving end. *edited due to typos
