  1. Desire is the spice of life!

    The Mahayana, no matter how noble and valid, may be the path proposed for the bodhisattva, the mantras, the ceremonies, the new sutras, etc. It truly disqualified the path of Gautama Buddha's original teachings contained in the early texts of the Pali Canon, worse still pejoratively created the epithet Hinayana, as small vehicle as opposed to the great vehicle or Mahayana.
  2. Need help on foundation and increase sensitivity of qi

    I'm lost, what does Candy Crush have to do with qigong?
  3. What are you listening to?
  4. Desire is the spice of life!

    Humanity has built great civilizations, through strength, effort, work, conquest and the pursuit of its objectives and desires, no one denies that. Desire, as you can see, is the great driver of changes. Buddhism, however, seeks a way out of suffering and points out that the basic cause of human suffering is desire in the changing and unstable conditions of samsara, obviously if everyone embarks on the monastic path indicated in Theravada Buddhism, the humanity would become extinct.
  5. Desire is the spice of life!

    Desires propel life in samsara Desires, if they are fulfilled, give you pleasant sensations of pleasure, the pleasure of that desire can make you attached to said pleasure, which finally leads you to instability and suffering due to its loss, since in life change, temporality and instability are the norm. The desire to obtain what could not be achieved, generate new desires to achieve the fulfillment of those desires that are pursued. However, life also entails decay, illness, old age and death, situations that make many wishes remain unfulfilled. All this is explained in the four noble truths and in the chain of causes or dependent origination. To understand the four noble truths taught by Gautama Buddha, experience and reasoning are required, as well as a deep analysis of the causes of suffering and the way to eliminate it. Understanding the four noble truths and intuiting that following them will lead you to nibbāna is a great indication that you are entering the sotāpanna current. The word sotāpanna literally means "the one who entered (āpanna) into the stream (sota), the one who enters the stream", according to a metaphor that calls the noble eightfold path a stream that leads to the vast ocean, nibbāna. Entering the stream (sotāpatti) is the first of the four stages of enlightenment.
  6. Help me find a gentle Qigong form

    It should be forbidden to speak inconsistencies in the forum, it is a troll behavior, since it contaminates the dialogue and diverts the answers from the initial question, and is abusive with respect to the respect that should be given to the one who starts the question honestly.
  7. Stories of Patria

    The poet Vicente Huidobro was dying on his farm in Llolleo. Suddenly, he regained consciousness a little, confessed to being very afraid, stared at a very distressed friend who was accompanying him, the painter Henriette Petit, and yelled at her before dying: What are you looking at, you buttface? After this he passed away!
  8. Hi The Flying Phoenix Qigong system is highly recommended, it cultivates a very powerful and truly sublime heavenly energy, it is in my daily routine. The other style of Qigong that I practice is the Pangu Shengong system which produces remarkable healing effects and rapidly cultivates noticeable chi, I have learned all three forms and it is by far one of the most powerful Chi cultivation systems. The energy cultivated in both systems seems to enhance each other and does not produce any negative side effects. These systems are very powerful and possibly very safe from the deviations of chi from other Qigong.
  9. It looks interesting, I have a question, did you receive the gong in the meditation, is it real, how does it feel?

  11. Signs of ones forthcoming Death

    In Tibetan Buddhism and in the Bon tradition, there is talk of some signs that precede death such as: 1. That a hawk or an eagle flies over a person and circles over the head. 2. For example, normally when we lightly press our eyes closed, we have a sensation of color and light. If it does not happen on the first lunar day, it is an omen that death is near. 3. Looking at the right arm very close to the eyes and seeing that it shines through, is a sign of imminent death 4. If someone gets very sick and often sees the sunset and the moon in the sky, it could be a sign that he will die. 5. The outward sign is a loss of physical power. The body becomes very heavy and cannot move anymore. The neck cannot support a head. The skin loses its color and shine. 6. A face becomes expressionless. Spots appear on the tooth. The nostrils are sunken and a face appears empty. The otherwise bright eyes become dull. 7. Normally, when we stick our tongue out, we can see the tip, but a dying person can't see it. 8. Or when we put our hand to our face we can see a part of our elbow, but when a person is dying, they can't see it anymore. It means that death is very close. 9. Different hallucinations appear according to a person's character: evil people may have dangerous visions and will feel scared, but practicing people (with better karma and clearer mind) may experience great visions. It is now becoming clear how well you have been practicing mind training throughout your life.
  12. Verses no. 15 to no. 16 of the chapter called "twin verses" of the Dhammapada inform the reader of the existence of painful and more or less happy destinies, depending on the future of their actions (Karma). Duggati-Suggati: "State of miserable existence", "State of happy existence" 1. Niraya: Place of punishment, a kind of hell similar to the Catholic one 2. Tiracchanayoni: The animal kingdom. 3. Pettivisaya: The kingdom of the deceased, souls or manes. 4. Manussa: The Human Kingdom 5. Deva: The realm of the gods. The rebirth in one of the five indicated spheres is determined by the bad or good deeds that the man has done in his previous life. They constitute, therefore, part of the system of retribution of acts. The Lalitavistara Sūtra is a Buddhist sutra of the Mahayana tradition in which the story of Gautama Buddha is told from the time of his descent from the Tushita realm of high Bodhisattvas and gods, that is, from his incarnation as Siddhartha Gautama to his first sermon in the Deer's Park in Benares. In Mahayana Buddhism, the kingdoms or pure lands where Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and those devotees who have performed good deeds and have aspired to be born in such superior kingdoms live.
