  • Walter, Thanks for all the useful information. I have read briefly about the concept of Anatha and you may be right. But the Tibetan Book of the Dead talks about the spirit reincarnating after 49 days and describes in detail all the visions and sounds the spirit sees in the unincarnate state. Prof. Evan Wentz (the author of that book) is a highly respected expert on Tibetan...

  • I don't think Buddhism denies the existence of soul. It denies the existence of God. The soul evolves and becomes liberated from the cycle of rebirth. Bodhisattvas help along this path, not God. Thanks, Sanjiv

  • Hello Bob, Thanks a lot for sharing this. I tried this technique and found it very effective in quietening the multitude of thoughts that usually race through my mind when I try to meditate. Of course it didn't stop all thoughts - I noticed myself thinking of how effective this technique was and that I should thank the sender, but it was a huge step forward. Thanks again, Best...

  • Sean, Thank you for expressing what I (and I assume many others) have been thinking for a long time. I value most of the posts on this forum and really appreciate all the work Bob has put in. But the few you mention seem to be in love with seeing their names on the forum associated with repetitive posts, which they may think come from an exalted state of enlightenment but are quite...

  • I have read of this ability in many Yoga texts, including from credible sources like Swami Satyananda Saraswati. It is apparently done by stimulating the Lalana chakra with the tongue, so that Amrit is secreted. It needs the anchoring of the tongue to be cut and the tongue to be stretched by pulling it for many months, to enable it to reach the Lalana chakra at the back of the...

  • Which pre meditative exercises would be the most suitable to calm the mind prior to meditation? I have tried Pranayama (Nadi Sodhana Pranayama) - which is quite effective, but quite difficult to do properly. Also, there are warnings about Pranayama leading to pre- mature awakening of the Kundalini, with all it's consequences. Are there any Yoga Asanas that can help calm the mind...

  • You should definitely see a doctor, but this could also be symptoms of Kundalini Awakening. Do you feel heat at the base of your spine? If so, please consult with a Kundalini practitioner. Regards, Sanjiv

  • Our hearts go out to the innocent victims, but I also hope and pray that there are no communal riots in retaliation. There are many unscrupulous politicians who will seek to exploit this for their selfish ends, by encouraging attacks against innocent muslims. India has a long tradition of religious tolerance, which needs to continue. I am travelling to India this weekend, in spite...

  • Ashoke, You should check out literature on Kundalini Awakening symptoms. You may have had an awakening. It sometimes gives healing powers (usually temporarily). Do a Google search on Kundalini Awakening and you will find a lot of stuff which may help explain this. There are books also on this. Regards, Sanjiv
