Travel to see life on other planets (video)

Ac Mahaviirananda (Tantric Guru); Editors, Wisdom Quarterly; TheMisterySpot (video)
Ananda Marga devotees engage in devotional practices, yoga, meditation, social service.

These are the 13 known extraterrestrial races living on Earth
Wait. There's life on other planets? How can we know that? We can use science and unreliable eyewitnesses. But NASA is not saying a word, at least no officially. In India there arose a guru who considered himself an avatar of Shiva and Krishna, a modern incarnation of benevolence to help humankind.

His name was Shri Shri Anandamurti ("Holy Holy Bliss Embodiment," born Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar) and he began a devotional moral religion of yoga, meditation, and social service called Ananda Marga ("Path of Bliss," anandamarga.org).

Baba: Shri Shri Anandamurti (PK Sarkar)
The Margis called him "Baba," a loving title with different definitions in different languages and regions of India but generally understood as "Father." He was becoming very famous, performing miracles of a type usually attributed to Jesus of Nazareth (who spent his "lost years" training in India according to written records found by Westerner Nicolas Notovitch).

His followers organized meetings, darshana (viewing the guru, vision of the divine), where he would give a talk and a demonstration of magic -- miracles, yogic marvels, healings, and explanations about the world.

Baba had many good things to say about the Buddha and seemed to be on a similar mission though Baba is little regarded today by most of the world. They were born on the same day (millennia apart), and Baba lived in the state where the Buddha reached enlightenment and spread the Dharma...
Here is one astounding incident relating to life on other planets as recounted by Acarya ["teacher"] Mahaviirananda Avadhuta (an "apostle" or "direct disciple") in the fascinating book The Tantric Guru: Enchanting Stories of His Life (2nd ed., 2011, Ananda Marga Publications, Ananda Nagar, India).
A Demonstration of Death (pp.43-44)

When the Ananda Marga mission began, Baba used to give general darshana (viewing the teacher) in Jamalpur (Bihar, India) every Sunday. Margis would attend from different places, and some would stay at the Jamalpur jagrti (mission house).
On November 21, 1954, the darshana room was full of sadhakas (devotees). Baba requested a devotee, "Come here, sit in lotus posture, and close your eyes..." The devotee did as he was asked.

Then Baba said, "I order your apana vayu [vital "air," spiritus, "holy spirit," life force energy, chi, prana responsible for elimination] to cross samana vayu [vital "air" responsible for digestion, metabolism, heat regulation]; now to to prana vayu [responsible for beating heart and breathing and moving energy to every cell of the body]." The devotee started breathing heavily. Next Baba said, "Prana vayu, merge with udana vayu ["air" responsible for speech]."

The the devotee made strange sounds and fell to the ground. Baba asked a doctor who was sitting there, "Is there life in him?" The doctor replied, "No, Baba."

Baba explained, "There is still life in his body. A person will die only when the prana vayu leaves the body."

He asked everyone present, "Do not tell him what I have done in this demonstration. Some of you, massage his body."

Then Baba left the hall and went into another room. Half an hour later, Baba returned and called everyone into the room. Everyone was wondering what He would do next.

With His right toe, Baba touched the sahasrara chakra of the devotee on whom He had earlier performed the demonstration. The devotee opened his eyes and Baba asked him, "Who are you?"
He replied, "I am Shyama Charan Lahiri [the name of a great yogi who passed away in 1895, a disciple of Mahavatar Babaji made famous by Paramahansa Yogananda in his spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi].

Baba asked, "Why have you come here?"

He replied, "You gave me an order to come and save the body [of this man]."

Life on other planets?

Baba said, "Now that you have come, you can do a little more work. Just now, go to the planet Mars and see if there is life there."

Then the videhi mind [let us say the "projected astral body"] of Lahiri went to Mars and said, "There is no life there [at least not visibly on the surface]."

Then Baba asked, "What is there, then?"

Lahiri replied, "There is only water, and in some places there is land that is muddy because of the water."

Baba then instructed him, "Now you can go to the moon and tell us what is there."

He said, "There is a vast desert and mountains."

Baba asked him, "Is there any life?"

He replied, "There is no life [at least not on the surface]. There is a lack of oxygen on the moon, but there are gold mines."

After that, Baba told him, "Now go to Venus."

Lahiri said, "There are human beings there who are reddish in color [like Ancient Egyptians?] and are more developed than the human beings on Earth."

Baba told him, "Return to Earth and go to the USA, Russia, Tibet, and the Himalayas, and tell everyone what you see there."

After that Baba thanked the videhi mind of Lahiri and told it to leave the devotee's body.

The devotee then appeared to be dead again. Baba knew that all of the devotees in the room were upset by this, so He gave the order, "Wherever the sadhaka's videhi mind is in this cosmos, it must come to Earth, to India, to Bihar, to Jamalpur, and right tothis place."

Then Baba ordered all of the devotee's vayus to function properly, and after a while he opened his eyes.

Baba asked him, "Why do you feel dull?"

He replied, "Baba, I got up a little late this morning. That's why."

Baba told him, "Do not take dinner tonight; just drink some warm [liquid] just before you sleep."

The next day the same Margi was with Baba again. Baba scolded and punished him because he got married without informing Baba, even though in the past Baba had told him not to do this.

His life was destined [by karmic force not by chance "fate"] to be short and that is why Baba called him to Jamalpur and used him to demonstrate the process of death. This demonstration exhausted his samskaras for a short life, and Baba then revived him and extend his life. [The end.]

Is there life on other planets?
In another story (p. 60), Baba stares at space and explains that the "ideology" (Good Word, the Teachings of Ananda Marga) have already been spread to 49 other worlds in space, but there are countless more to go. Baba sent 40 apostles (avadhutas) out into the world(s). He will go there to teach until many more worlds hear the "Timeless Teachings" (Sanatana dharma, "Eternal Truth") established there again, an aspiration very similar to Buddhism and, one imagines, any universal doctrine or missionary tradition.

Please bring an INGREDIENT LIST to help those with allergies. Prevent paper and plastic waste: please bring your own utensils, plates, bowls, cups, fork/spoon, and serving utensils.

WHEN: Gather at 11:00 AM for a beautiful opening circle at noon then we feast!

WHERE: Rancho Park
MAP, Culver City, Los Angeles (westside). Enter Cheviot Hills Park (aka Rancho Park) at the north entrance on Motor Ave. (first entrance south of Pico Blvd.) Enter parking area on the left. Drive past this parking area and follow the road to the next parking area, which is a few hundred feet down. Walk to the picnic tables across the grass and behind the baseball field. "VEG" signs will be posted to point the way.  (There is another picnic area at the far end and close to the parking lot that is not our picnic area).

Trump pardons turkeys then eat red meat
We were told we'd be spared slaughter and set free by an orange man. True or a joke?

    Selfie before the slaughter? - Pardon us.
    Two white Minnesota-raised turkeys visited the White House for the annual white turkey pardoning ceremony by white Pres. Trump. Now that they won't be slaughtered (because "Meat is murder") they get to have names, Wishbone and Drumstick. 
    Hold it in! If you poop here, they may kill us.
    The duo’s names were announced Monday at the Willard Hotel, the lavish property where the birds currently have a suite, which is located just a block down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. Why all the hubbub over some "dumb" birds? It makes it easier to kill the rest of them, neither seen nor heard and certainly without names.

    This joyous event makes it possible to look at ourselves in the best possible light as forgiving and magnanimous when we raise hundreds of millions of birds for slaughter just for this one day -- to say nothing of the countless cows, chickens, pigs, and fish that are destroyed with half of them going to complete waste ending up as trash not food.

    And here we thought the Brahmin Hindus of Nepal were brutal for promoting the mass slaughter of animals at the gruesome (and surely demon-inspired) Gadhimai festival.

    The unbelievable demon fest worshiping or appeasing Gadhimai: 250,000 animals slaughtered in one place as quickly as possible, over a day or two. Buddha Boy, Wisdom Quarterly, and activists stood against it. Now banned but still going on underground as in the US.
    White turkey pecks a white D--- (Bush)
    Chairman Carl Wittenburg of the National Turkey Foundation, who raised the birds, said Wishbone and Drumstick were selected from a flock of 80 for "their character, their temperament, their showmanship, and how they looked strutting their stuff."

    [And the fact that they're ostentatiously white is a complete coincidence with no bearing on their pardon. All of the rest of the birds, some of whom are also white, will be slaughtered]. More

    Charles Manson released from prison (video)

    Editors, Wisdom Quarterly; Paul Levy (Reality Sandwich); KFI; AP; Watch Mojo (WM); Iggy Pop

    I may only stand 5'1" but I scared your asses for half a century. That's for putting me in an orphanage then molesting and abusing me then throwing me in jail and again abusing me. Sorry I ruined the hippie movement. Who's Who in Manson's Life?
    In the song "Five Foot One" (5'1"), is Iggy Pop referring to egomaniacal, charismatic cult leader Charles Manson? Charlie was "released" from prison on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017.

    We had always heard -- thanks in part to singer Marilyn Manson -- that little men develop big needs to prove something, Napoleon, Hitler, that little guy. We doubt that explains 5'1" Manson.

    Here's a better explanation for the racist murderer -- the wetiko -- who did his killings by proxy with the hopes of kickstarting a "race war" so that he could roll in and play the role of Hitler II. 
    Understanding a psychopath
    Gay white supremacist Charles Manson (RIP)
    (Reality Sandwich) In the book Columbus and Other Cannibals: The Wetiko Disease of Exploitation, Imperialism, and Terrorism, Native American author Prof. Jack D. Forbes lucidly explores a psychological disease that afflicts the wetiko (wendigo, English wacko). It is a self-destructive human behavior that Native Americans have known about for years.

    Genocidal Columbus was a wetiko.
    The book makes it clear that they are describing the same psycho-spiritual disease of the soul written about in the book, The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis (by Paul Levy).

    From the dawn of human history, our species has fallen prey to a "collective psychosis" that can be called malignant ego-phrenia. Speaking about this psychic epidemic, Prof. Forbes writes:

    "For several thousands of years human beings have suffered from a plague, a disease worse than leprosy, a sickness worse than malaria, a malady much more terrible than smallpox." What is it? "Wetiko," a Cree term that refers to a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes others.

    Prof. Forbes, who was one of the founders of the American Indian Movement in the early sixties, says, "Tragically, the history of the world for the past 2,000 years is, in great part, the story of the epidemiology of the wetiko disease."

    Wetiko is a "psychosis" in the original sense of the word, psycho (from psyche, "soul"). This condition is a "sickness of the soul or spirit." Prof. Forbes is calling the illness of the ego, psyche, soul, and spirit the root of humanity's inhumanity to itself. As if performing a magic ritual, in exploring the entity of wetiko... More

    Alien spiritual intrusion
    Greetings. I am a wetiko. Read my Bible.
    Speaking in his own language about the predation of the wetiko virus, the spiritual teacher Don Juan, of the Carlos Castaneda books, mentions that the ancient shamans called this "the topic of topics."

    Don Juan explains: "We have a companion for life… We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master."

    Don Juan: Yaqui Way of Knowledge
    This sounds just like the state of affairs being pointed at in the Bible when, for example, the Gospel of John refers to the devil [Mara or any other very malevolent being such as Satan, Columbus, Pres. Bush, maybe Trump] as "the ruler of this world" (14:30; 16:11), and Paul speaks of [the devil] as "the god of this world" (Cor. 4:4).

    The Gnostic Gospel of Phillip, talking about the root of evil that lies within all of us, makes the similar point that unless this evil is recognized, "It masters us. We are its slaves. It takes us captive" (II, 3, 83.5-30).

    Speaking of the predator, Don Juan continues: "It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don't do so."

    It is striking how Don Juan's description of the effects of these wetiko-predators is being enacted in our increasingly militarized society, as our freedoms and liberties are taken away step by step [like the announcement today that your driver's license won't be any good for boarding planes in two years, so you need to go prove who you are to get the proper papers/documents to travel].

    Wetiko/yaksha Mara bothers, obstructs Siddhartha
    It is as if an inner, invisible state of affairs existing as a yet unrealized archetypal pattern deep within the soul of humanity is revealing itself by materializing in, as, and through the outside world.
    To quote Don Juan, "Indeed we are held prisoner! This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico."

    Don Juan is referring to an "energetic fact" that most of us can probably relate to, that is to say, that "something" is within us that stops us from expressing our true creative genius and attaining our full potential.

    I killed some people, too, not just old Charlie.
    These predators are "time-bandits," consuming the precious hours of our lives, as if we are wage-slaves on a prison-planet "doing time." Deepening his description of these predators, Don Juan elaborates: "They took over because we are food for them… we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, gallineros, the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros."

    The wetiko virus particularly flourishes in overpopulated cities, where people are "coop-ed up." When we buy into group-think and are enlisted as a member of the herd, we become like sheep that are being led over the edge of a cliff or cattle that are being led to be slaughtered. More

    Saving ancient forest in Germany (video)

    Activists at COP23 decry corporations
    Reporting from COP 23 in Bonn, Germany, Democracy Now! ventures to the nearby blockade of the toxic Hambach Mine, the largest open-pit coal mine in Europe. Environmental activists say the mine extracts an extremely dirty form of coal called lignite, "brown coal." It causes the highest CO2 emissions of any kind of coal if burned. For more than five years, these beautiful climate protectors have been fighting to shut down the mine. They want to save the remaining German forest from being cut down to make way for the expanding the toxic capitalist project. Only 10 percent of the ancient forest remains at this time. On Sunday [Nov. 12], Democracy Now! drove down a dirt road, got caught in the mud, had to push, and bumped into an activist from the nearby city of Cologne, Germany, at the entrance to the remaining forest.

    Manson dead at 83, Trump still healthy (video)

    Editors, Wisdom Quarterly; KFI (iheart.com); KK; DLT; RS; The Apprentice Trump v. Manson

    Don't compare me to little Charlie Manson.
    Charles Manson, the infamous cult-leader of the "Manson Family," has died [after years of disease and a recent release from prison into the hospital] according to TMZ.

    Debra Tate, the sister of one of his most famous victims, Sharon Tate, told the website that she received a call from the prison telling her that Manson died at 8:13 p.m. Sunday evening. The prison is reportedly contacting all of the victim's families.

    The notorious cult-leader had been serving seven life sentences at the Corcoran State Prison in California and had been suffering health issues for some time. He was recently wheeled into a Bakersfield hospital, escorted by five uniformed cops.

    In January, Manson was hospitalized for severe intestinal bleeding. He had also needed surgery to repair a lesion, but doctors elected to send him back to prison at the time as they felt he was too weak to survive the procedure.

    Manson's not the only wetiko in our midst.
    Besides the self-carved [Neo Nazi] swastika on his forehead, Manson is best known for directing his protege Charles "Tex" Watson and three others [all brainwashed female hippie cult members] from his cult (known as The Manson Family) to a home above Sunset Blvd. and kill everyone there [in the summer of 1969].
    • [It's interesting that possessed Charles Manson chose that house, the home of convicted child rapist (and possible fellow Satanist) Roman Polanski, Hollywood darling and current criminal fugitive. Polanski made the 1968 horror movie Rosemary's Baby about a pregnant woman who suspects that an evil cult wants to take her baby away for use in their rituals.]
    Man makes horror film, molests child, runs away
    The Manson Family members [ritually] murdered Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of movie director Roman Polanski, as well as celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, the heiress to the Folger Coffee fortune Abigail Folger, writer Wojciech Frykowski, and teenage Steven Parent.

    Manson was tried and convicted for the murders, and he was sentenced to death along with several other members in his cult. The death sentence was commuted in 1972 when the death penalty was briefly outlawed in California.

    Manson as short prison thug and psycho-wetiko
    At the time, prosecutors said Manson and his family's motivation for the murder spree was an attempt to incite a race war he believed was suggested by the Beatles' song "Helter Skelter."
    Manson had been in prison since 1971 and been denied parole several times. More

    Science: Humans GLOW with visible light!

    , 2009); Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

    This is a schematic illustration of experiments that found the human body, especially the face, emits visible light in small quantities that vary during the day. B is one for the test subjects. The other images show the weak emissions of visible light during totally dark conditions. The chart corresponds to the images and shows how the emissions varied during the day. The last image (I) is an infrared image of the subject showing heat emissions (Kyoto University; Tohoku Institute of Technology; PLoS ONEa).

    The human body literally glows, emitting a visible light in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day, scientists now reveal.
    Human devi, Maria Orsic (Vril)
    Past research has shown that the body emits visible light, 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. In fact, virtually all living creatures emit very weak light, which is thought to be a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals.
    (This visible light differs from the infrared radiation — an invisible form of light — that comes from body heat.)
    To learn more about this faint visible light, scientists in Japan employed extraordinarily sensitive cameras capable of detecting single photons. More

    Buddhist "shining ones" (devas)
    A deva (literally, a "shining one") can refer to a woodland fairy or an angelic/godly inhabitant of many of the more exalted sensual, fine material, and immaterial "heavens" (sagga, akasha deva lokas) among the 31 Planes of Existence. Deva is a broad category like the term brahma.

    Ancient Buddhist deva carving
    The word is related to the English diva, deity, and divinity from the Latin deus, "god" in the Greek and Roman sense, "demigod" or "godling" or "angel."
    The devas are beautiful, like Pleiadians and Lyrians, Venutians and the women (particularly Maria Orsic, the Oracle of the Vril Society shown above) of Aldebaran. The bodies of devas -- whether lowly fairies or magnificent celestial bodies brighter than stars -- are more subtle and luminous than humans.

    SUTRA: Fairy in "The Wilderness" (video)

    John D. Ireland (trans.), Arañña Sutra (SN 1.10); Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly

    Thus have I heard. Once upon a time the Blessed One (the Buddha) was staying near Savatthi, at Jeta Grove in the millionaire's monastery.

    When the night was nearly past, a certain fairy (deva) that lit up the entire Jeta Grove with her surpassing splendor approached the Blessed One.

    Having drawn near and bowed, she stood respectfully to one side.*

    Classic fairy (Luis R. Falero, 1888)
    Standing there the fairy said:
    Those living in the forest,
    Peaceful, calm, of pure livelihood,
    Eating but one meal a day,
    How is it they appear so radiant?
    The Blessed One replied:
    They sorrow not for what is past,
    They long not for the future,
    The present, now, is sufficient.
    So it is that they appear so radiant.
    By longing for the future,
    By sorrowing about the past,
    By this fools wither up
    As a tender reed cut down. 

    Buddhist fairies
    *NOTE: A "fairy" or deva (literally, a "shining one") in this case refers to a woodland denizen or an inhabitant of a lesser heavenly plane. Deva or "light being" is a broad category. These beings exist on many planes.

    The word is related to the English words diva, deity, and divinity from the Latin deus, "god" in the Greek and Roman sense of the word, "demigod" or "godling," and Western religious "angel" or "archangel." When the term is applied to a human, it usually designates a royal (a legendary hybrid human-deva left behind to rule mere mortals, an honorific title like the one applied to the Buddha's mother Maya Devi).

    The devas are angelically beautiful, like Pleiadians and Lyrians, Venutians and the women of Aldebaran. The bodies of devas -- be they lowly fairies or magnificent space beings more brilliant than celestial bodies, planets and suns -- are more subtle and purer than human bodies. They radiate more light. (Auras? Western science now confirms that human bodies emit light, not just devas).

    The period before dawn-- the third watch of the night -- is the usual time for such beings to visit the Enlightened One, the Buddha. One of his titles, after all, is sattha deva-manussanam, a "teacher of gods (devas) and humans.
