Thread: Tibet

    Maybe we can analyze Miss Stone ideas under the category of western propaganda as i have talked before.

    It is even a little bit racist. How the chinese children who died can have a bad karma about the Tibetan problem?

    It is also a bit double standard. Would Miss Stone also say that the storm Katrina was a result of american bad karma, maybe because of the chaos they helped create in Irak? Allah the terrible punishing the centuries long sinner?

    I am afraid earth is just driven by blind cause and effects, ignorance.

    Though this is all maybe...

    There's a lot of ignorance in the world. Seems to be getting worse and worse for some reason...

    I think she just might.

    It's called dissent. You seem to have a rather feeble grasp of what this concept truly means.

    "Au total, le séisme a provoqué la destruction de près de 7.000 écoles et la mort de plus de 11.000 élèves et enseignants, sur un bilan de plus de 88.000 morts et disparus"

    It is said 11.000 children and teachers are dead.

    No comment.

    Sharon stone has no idea what karma is.

    Your work, your actions, are self contained punishments and rewards. You do something dastardly, you feel bad about it. Thats karma.

    Natural disasters are not a karmic event. Hundreds of chinese school children didnt die because they were disrespecting human rights.

    Karma is work. Not fate, but literally work or action. Alot of white people arent very good at sanskrit interpretation.

    I met Sharon Stone. Many years ago.

    Back then, she had no idea.

    But that's my opinion.

    Now, if you want to see a movie star with real sensibilities, I just uploaded a "President Kirk" video in the Comedy section of RussboTV....

    We love Captain Kirk.

    I have been in Tibet for two weeks now. As you might know the Gelugpa school studies logic so i tried also to find some logic:

    Hindu people do not kill the cow
    Chinese people kill the cow

    Tibetans kill the cow
    So Tibetans are chinese


    Peace and love

    Well, that settles it for me.

    Oh, wow. We kill cows. Are we Tibetans?

    Not a bad idea. They have some pretty cute women over there.

    I m back in Shangri La for a week hollyday to see my Himalayan landlord Gan Yan and some tibetan friends. The place is said to be linked with Shambala, a mythical buddhist warrior kingdom, which is connected with the Kalachakra tantra. In the middle of the Mandala there is Kalachakra in sexual union with is mudra Vishvamata. This symbolizes the union of wisdom/emptiness/female with methods/compassion/male. Kalachakra and Vishvamata have many arms, making look like a psychedelic orgy. In fact emptiness leading to the negation of self and possession also leads to the end of jealousy, a tantric sin, and open the doors of free love. The first time i came here, for my honey moon in 2003 when there was sars and many chinese were wearing masks on the mouth like jains ascetics, i met by the greatest coincidence my ex japanese girl friend i had known in India, Bodhgaya, met again by chanche in the Himalaya at Rishikes where we firts made love. So for my first day in Tibet i was gifted with 2 girlfriends! So when a tibetan asked me yesterday where is Shambala i told him it is where 2 men and a 1 woman make love. Being a practice of freedom, love without jealousy helps us settle in a politic of freedom.

    Another aspect of Kalachakra and Shambala is the announced war between buddhists and non buddhists. Of course as it is a Tantra it must be understood as a symbolical and inner war against all the negativities of our mind. But some say it can also be took literrally. One of the ennemies the kalachakra tantra quotes is muslim and christians. These days i understand it in relation with vegetarianism which is much more emphasized in buddhims/hinduism/jainism than his christianism/islam. Vegetarianism can be seen under two aspects: non violence and freedom. As a practice of freedom it is about letting animals live their live without submitting them to our desire, greed and ego. As a practice of non violence it is about killing the less sentient beings as possible. So these days i ask all my tibetan friends if they are muslims or buddhists, if they are into submitting animals or letting them free, into killing and non killing.

    I also wonder if Doc's interest in islam does not come from a past life initiation into kalachakra. But i think he is more muslim than buddhist: no wonder his shaolin toilet exploded.

    We talk a lot about buddhism and non violence here. It is funny to see the tibetans talk so much in favour of vegetarianism but not practicing it. Their relation with animals is pretty deep. Some would avoid to kill little animals such as chicken or fish because they dont feed enough people. Some would make donation to temples for the enlightnement of animals. Some would buy some animals from the butcher and let them free around a temple. Some when dead will give their flesh to vultures or fishes. Tibetan really have an interesting buddhist culture and reflexion on the first buddhist precept of non killing. A few years ago the Karmapa asked all the kagyu followers to become vegetarians.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering!

    Doc lives with Muslims in Thailand. In fact, all of his staff at Russboasia are Muslim. He finds them to be very close and reliable friends. Which is why radical Muslim activities interest him.

    Being from New York has an influence also.

    Didn't you mean "two women and one man"? Two men and one woman doesn't sound like a lot of fun to me.
