Virapannyo

Postby dhammatestimony » Thu Jun 06, 2013 2:08 am

When I was in Thailand, I listened to a Dhamma reflection by Tan Ajahn Jayasaro in which he mentioned of a monk called Virapannyo. I want to know more about this monk. If anyone has more information on this monk, then please provide it here.

I have a book called "Venerable Father, A life with Ajahn Chah written by Paul Breiter". At one time he was a monk under Ajahn Chah but his name was Ven. Varapanyo. I wonder if this is the same monk.

The reason why I ask this is because ever since I left the monastery from Thailand, I'm being contacted by 4 monks in my mind who are saying that I'm Virapannyo and need to perform certain procedures on me to determine whether I'm Virapannyo or not. They've kept me tied up for 4 months now, they are not at all leaving me alone. For the past 4 months they have performed all kinds of strange procedures on me(details of which are too vast to disclose) and are not at all letting me go. The names of the monks they are using are Luang Por Liem, Ajahn Kevali, Ajahn Siripannyo and Ajahn Jayasaro, I don't know whether the real monks are involved or not, however Tan Ajahn Jayasaro seems the most real since I've heard many of his Dhamma talks.
I'm almost being kept hostage they are not at all leaving me alone, I don't know what to do. They have different sorts of mind control techniques. They are telling me that they are almost like asuras and are not at all letting me go. Tan Ajahn Jayasaro told me to play Paritta chanting and it did not help me at all, so that incase they are some kind of evil spirit, it might go away.
They want to expose this Virapannyo character at any cost, that's why they are keeping me hostage. Even the message that I'm writing now might me due to something that they might have introduced in my mind.I don't know what to do I'm completely helpless.

Hi Dhammatestimony, not trying to offend you, but it honestly seems like you have some form of schizophrenia. Don't worry, you're in good company, there are plenty of the fine men who have schizophrenia. for example.

It's really important that you see a doctor about this, as you are clearly experiencing hallucinations. They can prescribe you some very good medication these days that work wonders and still allow you to function completely normally.

Please seek help my friend :)

Yes, please see a pstchiatrist. You're noit well, at all!

It may not be schizophrenia. Let's not jump to conclusions. But it seems like psychosis, so see a doctor as soon as you can.

Yes, well you might be right, I'm just trying to remove any stigma there might be towards mental illness by pointing out someone who suffered from it who has achieved great things. Another good example is Stephen Fry who is a manic depressive.

Having suffered from depression and anxiety myself I know it's a topic many people are not comfortable discussing, but we need to do so, we must be comfortable addressing these things and not treating those who suffer from it any differently for it.

While he may not be suffering from schizophrenia, paranoid hallucinations such as those that our friend has mentioned above are often caused by it, so it's not exactly a wild guess, but perhaps you're right and I shouldn't go diagnosing people on the internet like that.

They only appear to, it's just part of the hallucinations my friend. You must seek help. These voices are not real monks, they are just paranoid delusions.

It's really important that you go and seek more help. I cannot emphasise that enough.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
