Tibetian Buddhism - by : L. Waddell /1895 - two excerpts, first this one of the workings of the mind :
"And in a golden stall, a jewelled horse of foreknowledge,
which, Pegasus -like, carries his
rider wherever wished, throughout the worlds of the past and the present, and the future."
"And in the10th century AD. the Tantric phase developed in Northern India ,Kashmir and Nepal into the monstrous and poli-demonist doctrine, the Kalacakra wiith its demonical Bhuddhas which incorporated the Mantayana practices and caled itself Vajra-yana Practices or the "Thunder-Bolt Vehicle", and its followers were named Vajracarya."
also, page 397: "The Chinese word for "Horse-Dragon" is long-ma, of which (long dragon/ ma-horse), later changed to Lung-rta ----WIND-HORSE because the symbolic animal is used almost exclusively for fluttering in the wind as a luck/prayer flag."
Nan-sa's Return from the Dead (p.562): "Then,Yama, the judge of the dead, ordered her two guardian angels .........the good and the bad, and the judge, having consulted his magical mirror, and found this record to be correct."
(On the section of the expelling of the Death Devil, page 495: "Then, around these figures, strew morsels of every kind of eatables, grains, fruits, spices, including raw meat and wine, and also a few small coins of silver."
Page 496: "The effigy of the deat persom, items included with the drawing of the dead includes : a mirror, lyre, conch, vase of flowers and Holy Cake. This rite for expelling from the house and locality of the demon that causeth death, must be done within two days after the removal of the corpse, and this is called, THE TURNING AWAY OF THE FACE OF THE DESTROYING DEVIL."
"O DEATH DEMON, ,DO THOU NOW LEAVE THIS HOUSE AND GO OPPRESS OUR ENEMIES ." .... "GO THOU DEVOURING DEVIL, HAVING YOUR FACE TURNED TO THE ENEMY."
"LAMAS BEAT THEIR DRUMS, ECT, AND THE LAYMEN WEILD THEIR WEAPONS , ALL SHOUTING "B E G O N E "
"INTO THE BELLY OF THIS DOUGH IMAGE (OF THE DEPARTED) ...IS INSERTED
A PIECE OF PAPER ON WHICH IS WRITTEN..."
"EACH FAMILY PREPARES A DOUGH IMAGE WEIGHING ABOUT 4 LBS, AND ON
IT , STICK pieces of cloth .... and
coins .... & the demon of ill-luck is invoked to enter into the image, which is then worshipped and later abandoned outside the city."
review of THE NAG HAMMADI LIBRARY (english trans. 1977/81 Editor: J.M. Robinson. Book of Ascleplus, page 305: "He took away error and cut off evil." (cast -off scale armor)
"The creator, when he looked upon the things that happened, established his (own) design,which is good against the disorder."
"LISTEN ,O ASCLEPIUS ,THERE IA A GREAT DEMON the Great God has apointed to be overseer ,or judge of the souls of men ,and God has placed him in the middle of the air."(Note seen of The Egyptian Afterlife Judgement;the soul laided on a scale, counter-weight being a single, small feather.)
Book of Zostrianos: "he saw the reflection and with the reflection which he saw ....in it, he created the world and the reflection of the appearance was taken from him...and thus , there was within her ,no prior reflection ,pure and in itself beforehand."(1st photo puzzled at )
"The image of Sophia was lost every time, because her countenance was deceiving."
Book of Allogenes: "And when such a one has seen these ,he has seen the hidden -one and sees one of the hidden -ones."
page449 "There was a stillness within me ,there was a stillness of silence within me and I heard the blessedness, whereby I knew myself as I am."(photo-still image )
Trimorphic Protennoia: "All the elements
trembled and the foundations of the underworld and ceilings of Chaos shook
and a great fire shone within their midst,and the rocks and the earth were
shaken like a reed ,shaken by the wind."... "Their King
was afraid." - violence of the resurrection/energy and light
outburst thereof . "What is this disturbance
and this shaking that has come upon us through a voice belonging
to the exaulted sound." ...."there the light
that dwells hidden in silence and it was first to come forth."
(the "word"?) " is a hidden light bearing a fruit of life pouring forth living waters from the invisible, unpolluted immeasurable spring that is the UNREPRODUCIBLE VOICE OF THE GLORY " (another close -encounter?)
THIMORPHIC PROTENTNOIA xiii
"The 3rd time I revealed
myself to them(in)their tents as the Word ,and I revealed myself
in the likeness of their shape(photo-image of Christ) And I
wore everyone's garment (nude image) and I hid myself within
them, and (they)did not know the one who empowers me."
"And they (covered) him with a robe from the
robes of Light ; " "And I delivered him to those
who glorify--Ariom,Elien,and Phariel and they glorified him
with the glory of the fatherhood(Creators). " ..."And
he (Yeshua) became a light in the light." .... "And I (went)
to (....) ,which he had formerly ,and I GAVE TO HIM FROM
THE LIVING WATER ,WHICH STRIPS HIM OF THE CHAOS (armour
coverings and shroud,cast off)that dwells in the uttermost
darkness ,existing inside the entire abyss that is(death)....
and I stripped him of the inferior thought."(military burial
,over-turned by massive quake.---see Gospels)
"..,the 5 seals ,complete by virtue of intellect
. He who possesses thr five seals of these particular names
,has stripped off the garment of ignorance and put on a
shinning light".... "And the thought of the creature which is
scattered ,will present a single appearance (TURIN
SHROUD)(scattered,ie---scale imagry , coming together as one)
and dark Chaos will desolve (.....) and the unattainable
wittin the feminine(Reflective coverings--mirrored image,in
part) (....) UNTIL I REVEAL MYSELF TO MY FELLOW BRETHERN WITHIN
MY ETERNAL KINGDOM." ...... "AS FOR ME ,I put on Jesus."
"WE ARE NOT PREMITTED TO THINK THAT THE SHADOWS OF CALVERY DARKENED
(CHRIST'S) PATHWAY AS A YOUTH." (idea of future shock;future
events , having a sort of a "bow-wave" effect).
"The Death of Pialate" p.280 "And gave
it back to me , printed with the likeness of his venerable
face." .... "Therefore, I will go with thee and
carry the likeness to Ceasar to look upon ." --- "And ,if
thou wilt devoutly gaze upon it ,thou wilt presently obtain
the benefit of thy health."
"And he had him stripped of the coat and
soon resumed against him his original fury of mind ."....
"The coat had been the coat of the Lord Jesus."
"Tibet's Great Yogi: MILAREPA" written by Evans-Wentz
1928 page 257 "A hermitage ,which had been
built on the top of a rock known as "POISONOUS TO TOUCH"
;for the rock was believed to be the serpent -hood crowning the malignant Serpent-Spirit of Brin ." :The hermitage ,having been built there ,in order that the serpent spirit should be subjugated by the virtue of the hermits dwelling therein."
"TIBETAN YOGA" ;by same authors , 1935
----------------------- (speaking of the human
Aura) "And floweth upward to the crown of the head and permeates it completely ,and a red (aura) issueth in an intensified manner from the crown of the head and floweth downward ,till it
permeates all the body ,even unto the ends of the toes."
"Filled with one of these wrathful dieties ,with his face turned outwards,and that all of them taken together ,constitute a coat of mail ,which thou art wearing." ... "(THESE) are intended to build up ,round about him ,a protectice -circle ,or psycic-barrier ,which elementals and other invisible beings of an inimical sort ,can not pass ."(note, dificulty in Gaining Heaven...ie, a list of invited only... it would seem.) note again,the idea of the twin-burial of Jesus ,with all it's wrathful war imagry JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED (keep warm and plenty of bed-rest, lots of quiet)
The Demon -imagry noted ,in fact ,no doubt ,closely mirroring the extereme pain that must have racked his limbs.
page 175 "he treading under-foot of a human-form ,symbolizes the treading underfoot of all things of the "sangsara." "And ,when (one)..... becomes filled with the vital-force of the transmutted..... ONE ATTAINETH THE TRANSCENDENTAL BOON OF THE GREAT SYMBOL AND REALIZETH THE STATE OF THE GREAT VAJRA-DHARA."
And lastly, printed in 1954/68 by Evans- Wentz;of the Jesus College,
Oxford, Oxford Press
"THE TIBETIAN BOOK OF THE GREAT LIBERATION" (original notes- 1983, Dec.30
"The eagle of the mind is sure to take it's flight with wings spread free ;train yourselves to fly freely ,even now , O Tingri folk."
"This yogic training ,to fly freely ,before death ,as the Eagle of the mind does when the fleshly body dies ,is in the practice of projecting the ASTRAL-BODY."
"Drink ye deeply of the nectar of the STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS"
