Re: Kundalini experiences on a Goenka retreat

I did a bit of Kundalini yoga and shortly afterwards had a nasty psychotic episode followed by a few months of very low mood. There are lots of videos on YouTube on Kundalini Psychosis. I’ve chosen to stay away from it.

Re: Lockdown Stress

Wash and sanitise your hands. And apply fragrance free moisturiser to them. You’ll be fine 🙏

Looking for catchy chants.

Can folks please send me some links to some nice chants on YouTube? Not bothered about which tradition and can be with or without music. Something soothing to help me sleep would be good

Re: Meditation and safety

It's hardly any point in involving an ordinary health professional when going into psychosis. That's because they can do more harm than good by trying to stop a natural process with chemicals. I would feel safer being taken care of by a monk/nun, or a good friend. You reckon? The brain is an organ ...

Re: Meditation and safety

Was watching this video of one of Ajahn Sujato’s retreats. At 15.00 he talks about how feeling you are going crazy on retreat is not that uncommon and that it’s not unknown to have a psychotic episode. He seems rather nonchalant about it and says if it happens then to speak to the teacher and they ...

Re: Buddhism today compared to 2500 years ago

Yes, it's possible, I suppose, but communal oral recitation made it unlikely that ideas and influences could just be slipped in; that's much more likely to happen if people rely on a text which can be re-authored at any time. Do you know the name or have the link to the thread where the authenticit...

Re: Buddhism today compared to 2500 years ago

I just recently found out that the Buddha’s teachings were passed down orally for the first 450 years after his death before they were written down and the Pāli Canon came about. I wonder if it’s possible that things may have been added in, or there have been influences from other religions? Yes, i...
