  2. Nepal & Tibetan Buddhism

    I came across this article from 12 years ago by coincidence. I noted that the Nepali government closed two offices associated with the Dalai Lama. According to the article, these two offices took care of 20,000 refugees. Does anybody have an insight about the impact of this closure to the growth of Buddhism? Nepal closes Dalai Lama's office in Kathmandu Kathmandu - Nepal has closed two offices in Kathmandu associated with exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, Tibetan and foreign ministry sources said Thursday.The government has closed the office of the Dalai Lama's representative and the Tibetan Refugee Welfare Office, a Tibetan source said."Following an official notification of the home ministry, we have shut down all the offices relating to the Tibetan refugees from this week," a senior welfare office staffer told AFP.The welfare office looks after more than 20,000 Tibetan refugees who left their homeland after the Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 amid a failed uprising against Chinese rule.The Chinese embassy has frequently lodged strong protests with the Nepalese government for permitting the Tibetan office to operate in Nepal in the name of the Dalai Lama.Nepal, which is careful not to antagonise its giant neighbour, recognises Beijing's rule over Tibet. A senior foreign ministry official said the Tibetan offices had not registered as required under Nepalese law.The Tibetan Refugee Welfare Office (TRWO) had been helping several hundred destitute Tibetans who fled from Tibet across Himalayan passes to head to the northern Indian hill resort of Dharamsala where the Dalai Lama lives in exile.After crossing into Nepal, the Tibetans are provided with travel documents by the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) to help them to travel to Dharamsala."The closing of the TRWO may be a big problem for the Tibetan refugees fleeing from the roof of the world for their political freedom," a diplomatic source said. http://www.phayul.com/news/article.aspx?id=8923

  4. Tibet

    Tibet has always attracted people with the spiritual purpose of self-improvement. Of course, this sanctuary Elemental Earth and sacred knowledge of the planet information layers existence. This is invisible link with the High Cosmos, Geomagnetic Earth's crust at the points of convergence of the + and - where there is containment and neutralization of the energetic space field. The input and output streams of the Earth positive energy phase on the one hand and the input and output of the negative energy phase streams on the other hand are applied between a neutral space. Time slows down and it is possible to obtain information from the both of the core and from the depths of the cosmos. Tibet is not a religion. This is the Earth eight, where the infinity of ways overlaying information layers of the entire planet are interwoven with its level of consciousness. This is the growth of the entire planet consciousness.This is the seventh chakra of the Earth. The goal of everyone on Earth is to leave this place untouched, not to make the imbalance through a mental activity that can be a hindrance to the Tibet invaluable structure of preserving its energy value. It is the spiritual center not just of the planet, but also the center of the all earth living beings. Changing the energy fields of the space in this place means facing a real disaster for the consciousness of all people on the Earth. It is not a religion, it is life, communication, breathing and existence of our energy system. Ludmila Kniga http://knowledge-thought.com/

  7. Shangri-La The Children of the Law of One & the Lost Teachings of Atlantis by Jon Peniel free onine books, meditation techniques gadgets, atlantis The CLO (Children of the Law of One) was one of, or maybe even the first spiritual order on earth, and the energy practices are the original energy practices. Most major religions have their roots in a teacher of the CLO , although most people who followed or now follow the religion would not usually know the founder was a CLO monk/teacher. Shargung La is the final place where the Children of the Law of One retreated to after the final destruction of Atlantis in 10,500 BC, they also went to Egypt, the Pyrenees, and the Yucatan. Many energy and meditation practices originate from Tibetan mountains and even the Shargung La area in Tibet, a subtropical warmer area inside the deepest gorge in the world amidst the freezing Himalayas. Though the Shargung La Monastery was attacked and destroyed, and many monks were killed in 1990, there are still some monks and guides in the area even though modern science thought that humans had never lived there. It is such a remote area it did not show up even on satellite images.

  11. The Aquarian Gospel

    The Aquarian Gospel- Jesus Christ's Lost Years in India and Tibet Uncanny similarities between the Teachings of Jesus Christ and the Teachings of the Buddha. Really they are not as geographically as far from each other as people often realize- Jesus in the Himalayas- The Aquarian Gospel- http://www.sacred-texts.com/chr/agjc/index.htm The Aquarian Gospel based on Archaeological and Historical finds covers the "Lost Years" of Jesus Christ's life. The time from when he was 12-30 years old. The bible does not say anything about him or what he did during those years. Now modern Archaeologists are determining that Jesus went to the East during those years, to India and Tibet. He even had people coming to him from the east when he was born, the 3 wise men came a long ways to see him when he was born Hollywood takes action hero Jesus to India | World news | The Guardian From Elaine Paegels, academic and scholar- http://www.essene.com/EarlyChurch/OrthodoxFromGnostic/pagels.html How far and how deep does it actually go?- http://www.atlantisrising.com/backissues/issue3/ar3dsscroll.html

    An 1800 year old text possessed by early Christians has recently been translated for the first time ever in English. It describes the journey of the 3 wise men.

  13. Nazareth- the town theology built Video about it- It would seem that recently here a debate has sprung up about whether Jesus was an historical person, and how much of his story is true and how much is made up. Here are some interesting links which talk about an interesting issue about Jesus. What if there was no Nazareth at that time, or, what if he wasn't really there? According to historical and archaeological evidence, it did not exist historically at the time period of Jesus or until after the 4th century. While human settlements have been found in the area dating back as far as 9000 years and hardcore "Christian" historians claim them as proof of Nazareth, nothing has been found to prove the existence of an actual city called Nazareth, or even a settlement called Nazareth, at the time of Jesus. No roads,villas, theatres, and especially noteworthy....no synagogues! Modern Scholarship has found many instances where the modern bible contains bad translations from the original greek texts. One example is the mistranslation "Jesus of Nazareth". This became mistranslated into being understood as Jesus coming from the town of "Nazareth". However, modern archaeology shows that no such town existed at that time. We now know the proper translatation was "Jesus the Nazarene", meaning Jesus the Essene. The Essenes were a third group of Monastic Jews who would live in Monasteries near the Dead Sea in Jesus' day, who's teachings were at odds with those of the Saducees and Pharisees in the Jerusalem Temple of the time.- Nazareth – The Town that Theology Built Textual Analysis- History- So to be sure, Jesus did exist as a real spiritual teacher. He was an Essene teacher. An Essene teacher who was to come out and teach a bit more publically to succeed and surpass Jon the Baptist who was also an Essene.
