Work of clearing the land at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) has started. The big tractors and other equipment have been at work since October 3rd, 2012. I went to take a look at the progress so far and it was totally exciting. The land looks bigger and longer after clearing of many undergrowths. I did a land blessing and land deity puja while I was there and also gave a talk. The talk was about people taking trances of various supernatural beings. The supernatural beings include benevolent spirits, devas, mountain gods, land gods, negative entities and superior Dharma protectors. I explained who takes trance, the procedure and what is required and what we should be careful of. I also explain the pitfalls and also why trances happen and to who. I explained about trances within the Tibetan tradition in more detail. I went into somewhat of a detail on the preparation required. As it grew dark we moved inside to continue the talk on our land. We have containers on our land. So we can stay overnight if necessary. I gave this talk on trance because I have been asked many questions on this subject for many years and decided to share some information I have learned from my teachers and observation. I hope this will benefit very much.
Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. In the West (Greece) the Delphi Oracle was famous for it’s accurate prophecies of the future. Leaders and famous people like Alexander the Great had consulted the Delphi Oracle regarding his conquests and movements. Famous Shamans, Medicine Men/Woman/Priests of South America, North America, Alaska, Siberia, Mongolia, Malaysia, Borneo, Europe and many in Africa up till today can channel or take trance of supernatural beings to help, bless or assist others in their lives. It is still commonly practiced. Some would call it real, some would call it a case of multiple personality or psychosis. I guess the truth is in the outcome. Some are real and some are psychosis.
Please do watch the video to learn more of trances and remember, the best ‘thing’ to enter you is compassion.
My good luck to everyone and good wishes,
