I added more, including a complete listing of my books.
I believe people should stick to traditional teachings offered by Sangha.  Their mind training will be very stable and they can see progress rather than jumping from one thing or fad to the next. L...

Psychadelics are unsafe, what happened in the 60s was not a beautiful trip, Leary was part of this study.  and it caused people to be so out of it, they never came back.  This caused the govt to set up regulations on university testing on humans.  They are hard drugs that for some can mess up their sanity permanently.  Please add a disclaimer against the use of psychadelics because you have glorified in this short video something that is  illegal, immoral and extremely dangerous.  all you spoke about is addiction and how the mind gets addicted.  with the last bit about computers, for some its the internet, for others social networking.  However, for most it's a tool. Most of your work is fun.  This is not fun, tripping is costly and devastating to live through.

+Hongyang Shi I'm sorry but you seem very jaded. Psychedelics have been used for thousands of years used in sacred rituals and meditations. Taking psychedelics are a tool to help one explore their consciousness. To say that I cannot have profound life altering changes on my perception of reality is your bias. You do not speak for every human on this planet. I also research much about consciousness, practice meditation, and read a tons of material on the subject of "reality" and consciousness. Psychedelics do not cushon emotional suffering people burying their fears, worries, and self-worth. it is quite literally the opposite. These substances forces the person to face their problems head-on. My mind is strong and healthy, my body is most fit i have ever been in my entire life. You've only seen the bad batch of humans doing psychedelics for bad reasons, but there are 2 sides to every coin and you refuse to see the other side due to fear, which is understandable as it is hardwired into our primal instincts to avoid things that we are afraid of. However, I have seen both sides first hand, and it all comes down to each individual person to decide whether or not psychedelics can help or harm them. Yin cannot exist without Yang. There is bad inside good and there is good inside the bad. Open. Your. Mind!!!

Lineage Lineage is important to Buddhists. It's the only way to be sure you are receiving Buddha dharma teachings that are genuine. Buddha Sakyamuni set forth the guidelines over 2,500 years ago in the Vinaya Pitaka one of t...

Radiance - A Mahayana Chinese rebirth in Iowa: Iowa's own Bhikshuni soon to release author's autobiography
My autobiography has been the hardest thing to write.  I'm happy I made the effort to publish many sutras before I attempted the hardest thing I have ever sat down to to do.  At first I made lists, wrote snippets of my challenges and victories.  I had a dif...

Bhikshuni: "Compassion wins trust; aggression subdues willpower, trust lost through loss of will power is never a good practice."
Written in the bhikshuni post:  "A hallmark of a good master in the Sangha is purity in precepts and compassion in action of speaking and teaching dharma. There is a difference in laity who listen and learn Buddha dharma who learn for sincere benefit or who want power over others. Aggression has no place in teaching Buddha dharma, practicing Buddha dharma or propagating Buddha dharma. If you have no skillful speech keep silent, if your words are supportive and kind creating peace in the mind of the hearer then they are virtuous and well done. If you make people fear karma more than take on a practice in Buddhism then you are not on the Path, threats, coercion, and other violent acts are wrong in the first place because Buddha said not to do these things to people, to do so you go against our founding teacher Sakyamuni Buddha". ~ Ven. Guangming, Abbess Calm Clarity Temple

I bag a fresh half dozen and two sandwiches and a dayold to freeze until we are ready for it! Won't keep on your counter beyond 2 days fresh so eat up!!! or freeze.
