  1. Mantras

    Could you elaborate on your experience with the Vajrapani mantra? I would like to know more about it. Isn't that supposed to give you more energy and focus?
  2. Lower dantian not below the navel?

    In my school (I am an attendee, not a teacher), it is said that the LDT is not in the exact same space for everyone. It is generally behind the navel, a few fingers within usually, sometimes above and sometimes below. And on average it is higher in women than in men. You start training/cultivating, and it develops where it develops. Interestingly, the instructors say there is less variation in the locations of the other two DTs.
  3. I read some where that "Tibetan Buddhism" is at least as much Tibetan as it is Buddhist.
  4. Dantian vs Dhammakaya light 💡 orb

    How long ago was this? And are you still doing this technique?
  5. Chain of disillusionment

    I can shoot rainbows out my ding-dong. Let's meet.
  6. Flying Phoenix Chi Kung

    So if someone does FPCK, should one refrain from doing other breathwork? Or is it okay if there is a span of an hour between? I have been looking into some YouTube channels by some Wim Hof instructors (although they seem to have made some changes), some freedivers and pranayama people, and doing some breathwork and some breath holds. Thanks for the response on the long form meditation.
  7. Body Focused Forms in Qigong

    That sounds more like side splits than horse stance.
  8. Body Focused Forms in Qigong

    I think depth is more a determinant of difficulty than width.
  9. Ping Shuai Qigong

    I just tried ten minutes yesterday using another video by this same group. My shoulders were pretty sore. I think I will slowly increase time until I can get to 30 minutes.
  10. Ping Shuai Qigong

    If you get bored you could always sing that classic song: You swing your arms past your hips On every fifth: you dip and dip
  11. Ping Shuai Qigong

    Here is a paragraph from that page: "An ancient Chinese proverb says 'Do this exercise five hundred times each day & you will be healthy for a long life. Do this exercise a thousand times each day & you will live forever.'" I wonder if you start this later in life, like age 60. Would you still live forever? Or at least a long time? Is it ever too late to start qigong?
  12. Ping Shuai Qigong

    How long does that many repetitions take?
  13. Meat and meditation

    Anecdotal, but the vegans I have known who were vegans for political/ethical/environmental reasons always seemed healthier than people who were vegans for health reasons.
  14. Leaking chi from the anus

    Thanks for the response. I hope you have gotten to the bottom of this and put it behind you.
  15. Leaking chi from the anus

    What do you mean by "getting more huang"? A search on the site shows that it is usually referring to people named Huang.
