A Shamanistic Dimension

Just finished reading the Zennist’s post entitled Restoring our spiritual senses. It evokes a shamanistic-dimension to destabilize our “despiritualized culture.” Reading this for me was one of those synchronistic moments as my blog from this past summer, Notes from the Iron Stupa , had as its salient theme a Shamanistic-Dimension. As the Zennist states it may indeed take a “modern form of shamanism” accompanied with “spiritual artifacts” that include special forms of incense and Read more [...]

Vairocana’s Vajrasattva Empowerment

The power of Bodhi vs. the power of Mara is as timeworn as the Universe itself. It is the ongoing mêlée between time-bound reality and timeless-forces armed with deathlessness.  It was again fought in close-quarters within the Iron Stupa as our protagonist’s Body, Speech, and Mind—now refined as such—became the weapon that was prepared to clash with this Present Darkness as embodied in the evil agent of the Dark Lord of Agarthi. As the Black Ngagspa reached out in an attempt to exterminate Read more [...]

The Presentation of Vajrasattva

FOUR: THE PRESENTATION OF VAJRASATTVA Arising from the vajropama-samādhi, the Elect discovered himself being drawn towards a chapel of light whose entrance appeared in the center of the antechamber. He was then drawn to a rectangular pool of water within which he was slowly submerged.   The surface of the pool reflected the Mirror-like Wisdom as personified by Dhyanī Buddha Akṣhobhya. From within this watery-skin of Akṣhobhya, the Elect with one-pointedness of Mind discerned Read more [...]

Foundations: The Tathāgatagarbhatārā Tantra

The Vajrayana essentially follows the old principle of hermetic magic, 'as above so below'. By manipulating the mundane consciousness, it effectively induces change on the spiritual level.
