Brochure printemps ete. Les capsules funéraires permettent de devenir un arbre quand vous mourez. Comme les gens le savent, la mort est peut-être l’une des choses les plus terrifiantes qui soit.

Les capsules funéraires permettent de devenir un arbre quand vous mourez.

C’est démontré par nos tentatives répétées d’expliquer le phénomène. La plupart des gens espèrent que nous vivons en tant qu’esprit, ou même se réincarner. Mais comment vous sentiriez-vous si vous saviez que votre corps pourrait nourrir un arbre après la mort? Cette admirable capsule funéraire le permet. Anna Citelli et Raoul Bretzel, deux designers italiens, ont créé ce concept, appelé le Capsula Mundi. Une visite au Louvre de Jean-Marie Straub et Danièle Huillet : « un abîme où l’œil s’enfonce… » 1Rarement un film aussi court (48 minutes) et aussi simple d’apparence (une sculpture et quatorze tableaux filmés frontalement, fixement, entièrement, avec un commentaire off) aura déclenché des ondes de choc d’aussi longues portées.

Tant par son paradoxe (un film où la part des cinéastes semble congrue puisque l’on compte trois plans « de cinéma » seulement, mais qui apparaît comme l’un de leurs plus personnels sinon le plus intime) que par le foisonnement de sa matière qui ne cesse de développer des niveaux ou des chemins d’une projection à l’autre, voire tout simplement dès lors qu’on y réfléchit quelque peu. 1 Joachim Gasquet, Cézanne, Bernheim jeune, Paris, 1921 (rééd. régulières depuis 1926, notamment Cyn (...) 3 Pourtant la brièveté se révèle d’emblée complexe puisque l’exploitation en salle d’Une visite au Louvre offre le film « en miroir », deux fois de suite dans deux versions légèrement différentes (la seconde de 47 minutes). 6 Voir Décadrages no 1-2, automne 2003, p. 148-160.

Maybe it is just really, really bad.

How to Deal with Karma Spills and Negative Synchronicities - Tenderlogic

Maybe it is Uranus return. Maybe it is the Karma of lifetimes being visited upon you, unfolding a heavy blanket of darkness. Maybe it is the end days you tell yourself. But whatever it is you know you are in it. You can feel it and smell it. There are times in our lives when opportunities and ease are not our companions. We feel as if there are no choices available to us. What are we to do then, here in this hardship? I usually will try to avoid feeling that sinking truth of the dark storm brewing. We desperately look for a break in the storm. It could be heartache, loss or a feeling of doubt that is butchering our insides. Are there no insights in grief or sadness?

Here is what I have learned in dark moments that have no end: Feel the feeling. There is nothing in the universe that does not respond to consciousness/light. Tantric Theravada in Cambodia - Tantric Buddhism became ascendant in Angkor during the reign of King Jayavarman VII.

Tantric Theravada in Cambodia -

His great temples in Angkor Thom, especially the Bayon, are tantric centers. The Hevaajra-Tantra seems to have been an important tantric practice in Cambodia at this time. Boisselier says the brahmavihara meditations are featured in the Hevaajra-Tantra [“we shall expound the chapter on the divinities. First one should product thought of love, secondly that of compassion, thirdly that of joy, and last of all that of equanimity. Hevajra Tantra I.iii.1] and the tara-sadhana of the sadhanamala. Why did tantric Buddhism appear so strongly in Angkor (Cambodia) at this time? A tantric pantheon led by Hevajra, Vajrasattva, Vajradhara and Vajrapani moved center stage in Cambodia at this time, and Jayavarman had all the resources needed for this in the Phimai tradition from which his Mahidhara dynasty hailed.

Ulrich von Schroeder said of the refugee Buddhist masters of 1200: Tantric Theravada and modern Vajrayana. “Tantric Theravada”?!

Tantric Theravada and modern Vajrayana

Recently I asked how Theravada relates to the theoretical category “Sutrayana.” I originally expected to answer: Traditional Theravada fits the definition of Sutrayana very well. Naturally, it has moved slightly in the direction of Vajrayana as it modernized. However, I was shocked to discover that: Theravada has included Vajrayana for as long as it has existed—and still does! Not many Western Buddhists know this. A brief history of tantric Theravada In the 700s, the Pala Dynasty conquered India, and made Vajrayana (Buddhist Tantra) the state religion.

Theravada is a sect of Buddhism, not a yana. Reports of Chinese pilgrims say that Vajrayana was a major teaching in Theravada in the 700s. Until Buddhism collapsed in India, Theravada was mainly restricted to Sri Lanka. Theravadan Tantra is still practiced today in every Theravadan country other than Sri Lanka: Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, and Laos.
