The Three Gunas

*10.12 The Atman has no beginnings nor any of the discriminating characteristics of the three gunas. Though it apparently dwells in the body, Arjuna, IT is not the doer, nor does it give birth, nor is IT affected by any actions.  read more

The Cult of the Dead

In the Karmadhatu Dukkha is Inevitable

ii.15 The Discriminatory mind is the root of all pain

Fascination with things like the “Walking Dead and Zombies” has been around for quite awhile. Back in 1932 there was a film with Bela Lugosi entitled, “White Zombie”, which has become a cult classic. During the 1950’s there were films like “The Invisible Invaders” with John Carradine and John Agar, a story about invaders from Outer Space taking up residence in the corpses of human beings. It was one of my “Saturday Matinee” favorites on the ol’ black and white Tube as a kid in the ‘60s. Then in 1968 came “Night of the Living Dead”, which is really the old grand-dad of Flesh-eating Zombie types, like the little girl who eventually munched away on her parents. This film spawned many more throughout the years, like “Day of the Dead”, “Dawn of the Dead”, ect. But the one that seems to hold the greatest fascination in recent years is the AMC continuing series, “The Walking Dead.” People are really into these “animated-corpse” types of subject matter; there are even people going around getting dressed-up in Ghoul-makeup and having their own personal “zombie weddings”. Why all the fascination with this kind of phenomena? Is it just merely another passing fad? One would hope so. But perhaps there’s another form of metaphor at work here, one that this next sutra by Patañjali can help us with. read more
