  1. Skeleton Meditations

    In Vajrayana poetry, literature and song, particularly that of the 'songs of realization', charnel grounds are often described as containing "rivers of blood", "poisonous waterfalls", and depicted as localities containing dangerous wild beasts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charnel_ground Without going into details which pertain only to experienced practitioners, I can tell you that many energetic practices of vajrayana and especially the formation of the "vajra body" or "diamond-adamantium body" corresponds to working with the physicality of the skeleton and marrow (and possibly some kind of "healing factor").

  3. Pandemic Panic - Transcending the Fear

    If you are honest with yourself about self-cultivation and recognizing the imminence of death, then the practice of transcending fear and panic is no different than any other day. If you are not honest with yourself about these things, now you have a chance to get some real insight into the situation.
  4. Think you caught Covid19, What to do

    No more "business as usual"... for a little while, at least.

    1 Never is he injured whom the Gods Varuṇa, Mitra, Aryaman, The excellently wise, protect. 2 He prospers ever, free from scathe, whom they, as with full hands, enrich, Whom they preserve from every foe. 3 The Kings drive far away from him his troubles and his enemies, And lead him safely over distress. 4 Thornless, Ādityas, is the path, easy for him who seeks the Law: With him is naught to anger you. 5 What sacrifice, Ādityas, ye Heroes guide by the path direct,— May that come nigh unto your thought. 6 That mortal, ever unsubdued, gains wealth and every precious thing, And children also of his own. 7 How, my friends, shall we prepare Aryaman's and Mitra's laud, Glorious food of Varuṇa? 8 I point not out to you a man who strikes the pious, or reviles: Only with hymns I call you nigh. 9 Let him not love to speak ill words: but fear the One who holds all four Within his hand, until they fall. - Rig Veda, HYMN XLI: Varuṇa, Mitra, Aryaman.
