The isolation of these temples creates an intensified spiritual connection for the visitors. The practice started in central Aisa and migrated East over time. While some places of worship use architectural height to draw attention up to the heavens, these cave temples highlight the value of spiritual treasures that lie within (Source: The Open Mind).

The Shit Buddha Says… The Seeker

SIN JONES...

“Master your senses,

what you taste and smell,

what you see, what you hear.

In all things be a master of what you do, say and think.

Be Free. 

You are a seeker.

Delight in the mastery of your hands and your feet,

of your words and your thoughts.

Delight in meditation and in solitude.

Compose yourself, be happy.

You are a seeker.

Hold your tongue.

Do not exalt yourself but lighten the way for your words are sweet.

Follow the truth of the way.

Reflect upon it.

Make it your own.

Live it.

It will always sustain you.

Do not turn away what is given to you,

nor reach out for what is given to others, lets you disturb your quietness.

Give thanks for what has been given to you, however little.

Be pure, never falter.

You have no name and no form.

Why miss what you do not…

The shit Buddha says… CHOICES

Some interesting quotes from various viewpoints. Buddha also said, as he was dying, “don’t try to follow me but make your own way”. Of course we did not but made a religion out of a man who had simply “woken up” aka buddha. Going to reblog this so TY. Blessings.

SIN JONES...

Buddha:  “We are what we think.

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

With our thoughts we make the world.

Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you (as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart).

We are what we think.

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

With our thoughts we make the world.

Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness with follow you (as your shadow, unshakable).”

” Look how he abused me and beat me, how he threw me down and robbed me!”

Buddha:  “Live with such thoughts and you will live in hate.  Abandon such thoughts, live in love.  In this world Hate never yet dispelled hate.  This is the law, Ancient and inexhaustible”.

Buddha also says that anger leads to insanity.

Why are some people capable of letting anger go, while others choose to dwell?…

Takshang Goemba – the Tiger’s Lair Monastery in Bhutan where Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyel once lived in the Original Caves

 How strange the world is sometimes, a big circles of synchronicity and serendipity.

8 August (9)

So, I find this t-shirt above at the Good Will for $3 which is way to small for me but it has on it a picture of a Bhutanese monastery hanging on a cliff and the words in English and Tibetan Takshang Goemba (Takshang Gompa).

Taktshang Goemba Tigers Lair Monastery Bhutan (5)

Taktshang Goemba Tigers Lair Monastery Bhutan (6)

So, i Wiki it and it turns out is Paro Takshang which is  Very Old and originally just caves that Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyel lived in practicing Tantra and channeling the Dakas, Dakinis, Nagarajas and Nagaranis, Nagas and Naginis etc discovering then practicing then teaching to each other and then to others the hidden Terma of Vajrayana Buddhism. Taktshang Goemba Tigers Lair Monastery Bhutan (2)

Padmasambhava aka Guru Rinpoche with Yeshe Tsogyel

So, I find other links listed here from which these pictures come.

Witchy Saturnsday, a little new moon, a little waxing moon, all mixed up bending time space which is how i practice my Witchcraft, Magicke, Thelema and Tantra

I started this on Saturday / Saturnsday and hope to get it posted today Monday / Moonday.

Some pics in the day of a life of an Appalachian Witch and country boy. I dress this way locally. If going to a club in the city or locally i wear all black leather, size 8 in female leather skin tight pants. But here i am wearing my late Dad’s ole duck hunting hat, sleeveless shirt because it is HHH as hell, lots of tats showing, cargo pants holding cell phone, military style wallet around my neck. Moroccan coin of a pentagram and hexagram on silver chain, carrying a new slim Glock 42 which is a .038 with 147 grain hollow points, some horehound candy i am addicted to, a gold plated business card holder with the COC card with blog and my email (yes i even hand them out to fundamentalist xians, keys to Jeep and three houses and a practical old sharp knife of my dads (he trapped and skinned muskrats, he being a true “river rat” a they are called in these parts) on a chain on a leather loop that was my dad’s, Captain Black cigar-ettes in an old metal case from my dad’s garage, etc.. Like i said, lots of pockets. Do these stuffed pockets make my hips look fat? LOL

26 June (6)

Standing before the gun sales rack. Yes, a pacifist Democratic (moderate) Buddhist Witch who likes to “pling” with hand guns, target bow and arrows (with my dad’s quiver must be 50+ years old), and short long guns like .22s. No hunting as i have been a vegetarian who eats eggs and dairy for 40 years. I was at the local new sporting goods store where a Glock man helped me put a little finger extension on the pistol. Actually i did it under his supervision as doing stuff is the only way i learn anything, not just being shown as someone else does it.

Based on the above, can you put me in a witch box? I think not…

26 June (7)

A business associates kiss ass cycle with a chrome skull headlamp that cost $800 and an entire skeleton skilfully airbrushed on the frame. Hmm, kept n the back room of his business, a side of him i guessed at but did not know. Can i saw here awesome frigging ride?!!!

26 June (8) 26 June (11)

I have NO idea what this is a pic i took of, but it sure is cool. I was setting off some fountain sparklers at the BH for SS and i think that is the manipulated pic? I take a dozen or more pics a day…

26 June (12)

I found this rare moth, who knows Latin name, white w black spots, one leg stuck in he BH (Black House aka Black Cabin aka Der Schwarz Haus) and rescued it and spent about an hour as it crawled all over me and the Goddess state, down into the water, up in the plants, finally fully recovered and flew off. My “good deed” for my Witch merit badge of the day.

26 June (13) 26 June (14) There she is, rescued from my late uncles property, thrown away. paper mach to something stronger, held together now by bambooo, in an old 50 year old concrete pieces found hundreds of feet apart from the original original Doctor owner of the BH, morning glories growing around and onto her, stones and crystals for the four directions, tomorrow to get a willow tree planted west and a locust tree (branch cutting w rotting enzyme). BTW i tried this with about a dozen trees and shrubs n left them in water too long to collected new ones, including from a lady an eighth mile away who is a natural witch w faerie statues and a faerie house and the most exquisite garden i have seen since Lady Alsaces though in  smaller area.

26 June (16) How to protect a growing catnip plant from my cats that want to roll in it and crush it to death for a decade i have tried to plant it.

26 June (17)

Long story, found wounded turtle on road, went back to rescue, dead, recovered body, laid on land in swampy area w metal milk cage to protect from bears etc, two days the flies n maggots did their job, BUT, the eggs were intact, soft, not insect bitten, fresh, warm. Can i do the great alchemy of shallowly burying the eggs where a momma turtle would, above the flood plant like in my garden, under once again a metal milk crate, in the sun, keeping them moist. If these turtles from a dead run over momma hatch i am going to start a Christian Turtle Avatar Savior Cult, LOL. Non LOL i really do have some faith. hell turtles have survived all kinda of calamities for  hundreds of millions of years.

26 June (18)

26 June (20)

Stones recovered from the creek bank from diggings into the deepest layer under my cellar floor in preparation for waterproofing. Mother Earth, and some skeletons from the Prohibition, Civil War, etc (just kidding as all the skeletons are in my closet (double ententre))

The great guardian Rahula’s root practice, <Taking the Blood of the Life Channel>, for those worthy ones with the courage to accomplish it is praised as the friend of yogins who persevere in the essence in one lifetime. Easy to accomplish, it is eminently effective but dangerous, swift acting and of great power and ferocity. For the support torma, the base is round, an eight-spoked wheel of meteorite metal. At its hub put a red torma twisted at the top. Put nalings in front and at the three corners, eight tormas on the eight spokes, also twenty-eight balls and eight small tormas. These support materials are adorned with ornaments of silk brocade, meat, blood, leopard and tiger skins. The offering materials are meat, blood, torma and libation. Bless them with the mantra and mudra of the <Treasury of Space>. Upon the support torma put a vajra with a HUNG. Insert the seed syllable a little bit below the tip and insert a drawing of a blue HUNG to block the throat.

In the midst of this is the rishi, great guardian Rahula, with all his emanated entourage of obedient ones. At his heart, I clearly visualize a globe of light within which the reddish black letter RA is surrounded by the mantra.

As the yidam, light rays emanate from the mantra in my heart and mix with the life force mantra. The samaya and I merge into one. Obtaining the life force of the strict samaya, no one ever transgresses it for even an instant.

Just by reciting I obtain their life force essence and accomplish unimpeded, prodigious enlightened activity.

The changes in visualization can be learned from oral instruction.

Consecrate and increase them with the mantra and mudra of the <Treasury of Space>.
