Mind boggling disappearances of ships and aircrafts – this is what immediately comes to mind at the mere mention of the Bermuda Triangle. Its reputation is so notorious that people have even tried to link it to the 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, even though the jet went missing halfway around the world. For decades, speculations have been aplenty about what transpires at this infamous triangular area in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, but none are conclusive.

Interestingly, for a place that is famous (or infamous) globally, the Bermuda Triangle has no official standing. It is not recognised by the United States Board of Geographic Names. Nonetheless, this mysterious triangular area has more than enough monikers to compensate for this. To name but a few, it has been popularly referred to as the Devil’s Triangle, the Twilight Zone, the Magic Rhombus, the Triangle of Death, the Voodoo Sea, the Limbo of the Lost and even the Port of Missing Ships.

In addition, it does not have proper boundaries or markers given that it is part of a larger body of water. Thus, the size of the Bermuda Triangle remains a contention. It differs depending on whoever happens to be writing about it. That being said, it is generally accepted to span across a large area of approximately 500,000 square miles from the points of Miami, Florida (United States of America), the island of Bermuda and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Living up to its reputation, very few facts are known about the Bermuda Triangle, adding to its enigma. Take for example the Bermuda Triangle’s departure from the norm of having two measurements of “North”. Unlike the rest of the world which has to make adjustments to cater to the 20 degree difference between the Magnetic North (i.e. the direction reflected in a compass) and the actual geographical direction i.e. True North, the Bermuda Triangle is one of two spots in the world where both Norths perfectly align.

Further, some quarters closely associate the Bermuda Triangle with the Sargasso Sea which overlaps the Bermuda Triangle at its north-western edge. With its big patch of seaweed jungle and unusually warm waters that constantly swirl clockwise despite a lack of wind, the Sargasso Sea also has its fair share of unexplained incidents. With such close proximity and unnatural oddities, it is inevitable that people would link the two together.

 

Mysterious Vibes, Vanishing Acts

Christopher Columbus leaving Palos, Spain by Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida

The earliest record of the enigma of the Bermuda Triangle goes as far back as Christopher Columbus’ first voyage to the New World. Upon reaching the waters of the Bermuda Triangle in 1492, Columbus reportedly experienced weird compass readings. He hid this from his crew to avoid throwing them into a panic. As they continued on, the atmosphere of uneasiness kept escalating. Three days later, all those onboard spotted strange lights hovering and this spooked the edgy crew. Many wanted to abandon the quest and return to Spain but obviously, Columbus managed to circumvent it. It is speculated that Columbus convinced his crew to forge on by chalking it up as an explainable phenomenon i.e. a fallen star (meteor). Columbus maintained that the lights were remnants of the great flame of fire from the fallen star, which he claimed to have witnessed on an earlier night.

These intriguing shipping log entries by Columbus set in motion the rather mythical bordering on eerie perception of the Bermuda Triangle. Subsequent accounts of incidents at the Bermuda Triangle appear to be heavily laden with mythical influences and even paranormal vibes. In this regard, the story of the Ellen Austin best represents the majority of tales circulated about the Bermuda Triangle by seafarers at that time.

It was supposed to be just another routine journey between London and New York over the Bermuda Triangle zone in the Atlantic Ocean, when the crew of the Ellen Austin (a 210-ft-long American large multi-masted ship weighing over 1800 tonnes) became embroiled in a chilling experience fit for a horror movie plot. In 1881, the Ellen Austin was on the last leg of its journey back to New York when, upon entering the waters of the Bermuda Triangle, it was surrounded by a sudden thick mist which blocked out all visibility. Left with no choice, the crew proceeded slowly and relied heavily on the lookout from the crow’s nest. After a few hours, they spotted another ship. Relieved at the prospect of company in such weird circumstances, the Ellen Austin sailed close to the other ship. The crew waited in anticipation for the fog to clear so they could make contact.

However, when the fog eventually cleared, the other ship was found to be abandoned. Despite searching high and low, the captain’s log and the trail boards could not be found aboard the abandoned ship, rendering identification impossible. Captain Baker of the Ellen Austin made the decision to sail the mysterious ship back to New York and dispatched six of his men to man the second ship. Things were smooth sailing for the next couple of days until they were forced apart by a sudden storm. It is said that the other ship mysteriously vanished but after several hours of searching, the Ellen Austin finally caught up with it.

Eerily, the ship was found to be empty once again with no trace of the six men who were stationed there earlier. The crew was spooked but Captain Baker managed to convince a handful of his men, this time armed with firearms, to sail the other ship in close proximity. Tragically, another heavy fog descended upon them once again and the unknown ship along with the men aboard disappeared for good. It remains an unsolved mystery to this day.

Some claim that the unexplained incidents are a result of the hauntings of those who perished in the waters of the Bermuda Triangle. None are more vocal about this hypothesis than psychiatrist Dr. Kenneth McAll of Brook Lyndhurst, England. He theorised that the mysterious vanishing incidents are consequences of the curse of the many African slaves who had been mercilessly thrown overboard on their voyage to America. This is heavily premised on the prevalence of 18th century insurance scams by British sea captains, who defrauded insurance companies by tossing the slaves into the sea to drown, then cashing in on a claim for them.

With stories like the Ellen Austin and the possibility of thousands of vengeful spirits, it is no surprise that these mystical and paranormal vibes have pervaded to modern times, culminating in theories where aliens are posited as a possible explanation for the numerous accounts of disorientation, navigational problems and even total disappearances within the Bermuda Triangle. Such theories generally revolve around alien abductions and the reasons for this range from scientific curiosity to inter-species breeding.

The Mary Celeste

One of the earliest disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle which is heavily associated with alien abduction is the Mary Celeste. In 1872, Captain Benjamin Briggs, his family and a small, trusted crew set sail from New York to Genoa on a merchant ship called the Mary Celeste. A month later, the ship was found adrift off the coast of Portugal, with not a soul on board. The riddle of the Mary Celeste has intrigued and mystified ever since. The eerily pristine condition of the Mary Celeste and its undisturbed cargo at the time of discovery added fuel to claims of aliens turning up to whisk the crew away. This theory was also used to explain the mysterious disappearance of the USS Cyclops where it is said that aliens beamed the entire ship into their spaceships. However, a lack of convincing evidence and heavy reliance on hearsay continue to cast doubts on the alien theory.

Take for example the USS Cyclops incident, which represents the largest non-combat loss of life in the history of the United States Navy. In 1918, the USS Cyclops was supposed to deliver 10,800 tonnes of manganese ore (to be used in the manufacturing of munitions) from Brazil to Baltimore. The ship never arrived at its destination and no trace of it was ever found despite exhaustive search efforts. Mysteriously, no distress signals were sent prior to the ship’s disappearance, nor did anyone aboard the USS Cyclops respond to the radio calls made by hundreds of other American ships in the vicinity. In addition, the waters were relatively calm with no storms strong enough to cause the USS Cyclops to founder. To date, the lives of the 309 on board remain unaccounted for and to quote Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States of America,

“Only God and the sea know what happened to USS Cyclops.”

Mainstream Theories and Explanations

The disappearances within the waters of the Bermuda Triangle all occurred at various spots and each was subjected to different circumstances. Thus, the scientific community maintains that there is no single theory that can explain all the disappearances. The following are some of the mainstream theories that have been put forward as plausible explanations over the years.

 

The Gulf Stream

The Gulf Stream is a warm ocean current flowing from the Gulf of Mexico around the Florida Straits north-eastward towards Europe. It acts like a saltwater river on the surface of the ocean. As its currents are extremely swift and turbulent, floating objects are easily washed away. The unique features of the Gulf Stream also make it possible for a vessel to encounter disaster at one location and for the wreckage or debris to end up in another.

An example is the disappearance of Daniel Burack on 22 December 1967. He radioed for help from his cabin cruiser “Witchcraft”, reporting engine trouble near the Miami buoy marker one mile from the shore. However, when the Coast Guard arrived at the location 19 minutes after the distress call, the cabin cruiser and its passengers were nowhere to be found. The search party continued for six days, during which some 24,500 square miles were covered, but to no avail.

In the end, the coast guard closed the search effort and the final statement reflects the passengers of the Witchcraft “to be presumed missing, but not lost at sea“.

Underwater Methane Explosions

Infographic about the Methane Gas Theory

When Dr. Ben Clennell of Leeds University, England delivered his lecture about methane gas in Wales in 1998, little did he know his findings would spark an explosion of interest to justify the mysterious vanishings around the Bermuda Triangle.

In short, the theory works on the basis that;

  • Large amounts of methane gas exist below the ocean floor, trapped in the sediment in the form of methane hydrate.
  • Large volumes of methane gas can be released as a result of landslides under the ocean floor. Under such circumstances, the water density in that area and right up to the surface can become so low that a ship could drop like a rock.
  • As methane gas is highly combustible, an eruption can also cause a plane flying above it to catch fire become completely destroyed.

 

Ever-changing Ocean Bed

The ocean bed of the Bermuda Triangle is strangely volatile. It comprises of deceptively gentle slopes, sudden deep drops and some of the deepest trenches in the world. Thus, it significantly reduces the chances of locating sunken vessels particularly as some of the deeper trenches are virtually inaccessible. In addition, the constant strong current of the Gulf Stream interfacing with reefs and marine trenches rapidly changes the topography of the sea floor. This in turn gives rise to many navigational hazards.

Bermuda-seabed

The unusual and ever-changing ocean bed of the Bermuda Triangle

This rapidly changing topography also explains why most rescue efforts and subsequent deep-sea salvage operations turn up nothing at all. The discovery of giant craters (about half a mile wide and 150ft deep) in the Barent Sea off the coast of Norway in March 2016 has also been used to support claims that there are large deep ocean craters on the sea floor of the Bermuda Triangle. The giant craters are attributed to oil leaks or methane gas bursts, trapped at different layers below the sea floor. This also complements the theory that if a ship is wrecked due to a methane blow out or other reason, it may drop into a crater causing the unfortunate vessel to remain hidden forever.

 

Rogue Waves

This refers to the sudden appearance of gigantic waves capable of taking out a large ship within moments. They can take place during a storm or even in calm seas. These nearly vertical walls of water can easily flip supertankers, sinking them in seconds. They can also utterly immerse and knock down any low-flying airplane or helicopter.

The first rogue wave ever detected by a measuring instrument was the Draupner wave or New Year’s wave. It was recorded on 1 January 1995 on a device placed at the Draupner platform in the North Sea off the coast of Norway.

Ocean Ranger Memorial Sculpture

Other incidents include;

  • The capsize of the Ocean Ranger in 1982. The loss of the then world’s largest offshore platform affected the design and safety features of future oil facilities. It also resulted in much tougher regulations regarding safety equipment and training.
  • In 1982, a wave measuring approximately 157 feet struck Fastnet Lighthouse in Ireland and caused significant damage.

The unpredictability of rogue waves makes them possibly the most terrifying ocean phenomena. It is believed that rogue waves are not caused by any one factor but a culmination of high winds and strong currents which routinely cause waves to merge. The odds of them occurring are still rare, approximately once every 200,000 waves. Nonetheless, they are more prevalent in the Bermuda Triangle given the frequency of hurricanes and the Gulf Stream therein.

 

Electronic Fog: A Hutchison Effect

This theory corresponds with testimonies about vessels being engulfed in some kind of electronic fog. It is said that the fog is not stagnant and appears to move in parallel with the vessel, causing its electronics to malfunction gradually. Eventually, the vessel is incapacitated and may even vanish without a trace.

This theory is heavily propagated by Vancouver-based scientist John Hutchison. He has conducted numerous experiments to demonstrate how electronic fog can wreak havoc on electronics.

 

Compass or Electromagnet Anomaly

As mentioned earlier, the Bermuda Triangle is one of two places on Earth where both Norths are the same. However, a normal compass is calibrated to cater for two different Norths. Thus, depending on the mechanism of the compass, it could behave erratically in the Bermuda Triangle, with compass needles intermittently spinning or spiking. This phenomenon has led to theories that compass anomalies could be the cause of mishaps or fatal accidents within the Bermuda Triangle area due to inaccurate reading of directions.

 

Human Error

Overestimating the capacity of the vessel, not understanding the area’s hazards sufficiently and poor seamanship are the top three human errors associated with disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. Reports are aplenty of personal pleasure boats and aircrafts radioing for help prior to mysteriously vanishing without a trace. That being said, even the most seasoned sailor or pilot can make mistakes with deadly consequences.

Take for example, Flight 19 which is the Bermuda Triangle’s most famous plane wreck. What was supposed to be a dry bombing practice run over the Florida Keys on 5 December 1945 became a tragic tale of 14 airmen perishing in the open sea. It is believed that the crew, especially the veteran flight leader Lieutenant Charles Taylor who was also a Naval Air Corps flight instructor, somehow became so disoriented that they deviated from their route and flew out over the Bahamas, never to be heard from again.

Atlantis

Another interesting theory is the link to the lost city of Atlantis. This is largely premised on the discovery of ancient man-made structures submerged in 15 to 20 feet of water, just off the northwest coast of North Bimini Island, about 50 miles east of Miami, Florida. Discovered in 1968 by a scuba diver, these limestone structures, dubbed Bimini Road, are said to be remnants of the sunken Island of Atlantis. Believers allude to the very advanced (possibly alien) technology of the Atlantean empire as the cause of unusual phenomenon at the Bermuda Triangle.

bimini-road-atlantis

Bimini Road

Evidence cited to support this theory is the testimony of Dr. Ray Brown in 1970, who claimed to have discovered a pyramidal structure with a smooth, glass-like and partially translucent finish. Not only was the pyramid illuminated by some unknown light source, it also appeared to be housing a unique sculpture in the centre, of human hands holding a four-inch crystal sphere, above which was suspended a red gem at the end of a brass rod. The pyramid is said to be about 300 meters in length, 200 meters in height and approximately 100 meters above the sea floor.

The discovery of this pyramid has been used to strengthen another speculation that the Bermuda Triangle and the area where the pyramid was found is some sort of “holy ground” under the protection of the Atlanteans. Thus, whatever crosses over is considered an offering.

Is This Notorious Reputation Warranted?

The number of aircraft and sea vessels lost to the Bermuda Triangle is uncertain and largely depends on which source materials are referred to.

 

Lost at Sea

Some of the notable sea vessels and their crews who sailed into oblivion in the Bermuda Triangle include;

  • 1800: The USS Pickering, on course from Guadeloupe to Delaware, was lost with 90 people on board
  • 1814: The USS Wasp, whose last known position was in the Caribbean, was lost with 140 people on board
  • 1824: The USS Wild Cat, on course from Cuba to Tompkins Island, was lost with 14 people on board
  • 1918: The USS Cyclops left Barbados on March 4 en route to Baltimore, Maryland and was lost with 306 crew and passengers on board
  • 1925: The SS Cotopaxi, having departed Charleston, South Carolina two days earlier bound for Havana, Cuba, radioed a distress call reporting that the ship was sinking. She was officially listed as overdue on 31 December 1925.
  • 1941: The USS Proteus (AC-9) was lost with all 58 persons on board in heavy seas, having departed St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands with a cargo of bauxite on 23 November. The following month, her sister ship the USS Nereus (AC-10) was lost with all 61 persons on board, having also departed St. Thomas with a cargo of bauxite on 10 December. According to research done by Rear Admiral George van Deurs, the acidic coal cargo would have eroded the longitudinal support beams, making these ageing colliers extremely vulnerable to breaking up in heavy seas. Both were sister ships of the USS Cyclops.
  • 1963: The SS Marine Sulphur Queen was lost with 39 crewmen, having departed Beaumont, Texas, on 2 February with a cargo of 15,260 tonnes of sulphur. She was last heard from on 4 February in rough seas with northerly winds of 25-46 knots, and listed as missing two days later. The Coast Guard later determined that the ship was not seaworthy and never should have sailed. The final report suggested four causes of the disaster, all related to poor design and maintenance of the ship.
  • 2015: The SS El Faro sank off the coast of the Bahamas, within the Bermuda triangle, on 1 October 2015. The boat was missing for exactly one month until search crews identified the vessel 15,000 feet beneath the surface.

 

Vanished into Thin Air

The skies of the Bermuda Triangle are no less treacherous. The notable aircraft who vanished without a trace therein include;

  • 5 December 1945: Flight 19 (five TBF Avengers) was lost with 14 airmen. Later the same day, PBM Mariner BuNo 59225 was lost with 13 airmen while searching for Flight 19.
  • 30 January 1948: Avro Tudor G-AHNP Star Tiger was lost with six crew and 25 passengers, en route from Santa Maria Airport in the Azores to Kindley Field, Bermuda.
  • 28 December 1948: Douglas DC-3 NC16002 was lost with three crew and 36 passengers, en route from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Miami.
  • 17 January 1949: Avro Tudor G-AGRE Star Ariel was lost with seven crew and 13 passengers, en route from Kindley Field, Bermuda to Kingston Airport, Jamaica.
  • 8 January 1962: A USAF KB-50 51-0465 was lost over the Atlantic Ocean between the US East Coast and the Azores
  • 9 June 1965: A USAF C-119 Flying Boxcar of the 440th Troop Carrier Wing went missing between Florida and Grand Turk Island. The last call from the plane came from a point just north of Crooked Island, Bahamas, 177 miles from Grand Turk Island. On 18 July 1965, debris from the plane was found on the beach of Gold Rock Cay, just off the northeastern shore of Acklins Island.
  • 6 December 1965: Private ERCoupe F01 was lost with pilot and one passenger, en route from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Bahamas Island.
  • 20 June 2005: A Piper-PA-23 disappeared between Treasure Cay Island in the Bahamas and Fort Pierce, Florida. There were three persons on board.
  • 10 April 2007: A Piper PA-46-310P disappeared near Berry Island after flying into a level 6 thunderstorm and losing altitude. Two fatalities were listed.
  • 23 February 2017: Turkish Airlines Flight TK183 (an Airbus A330-200) en route from Havana, Cuba to Washington Dulles airport was forced to change direction after mechanical and electrical problems occurred over the triangle.

Sceptics, on the other hand, rely on statistics to dissuade any postulation to a “Bermuda Triangle effect”. Take for example Lawrence David Kusche who wrote the book, “Bermuda Triangle – Solved”. After extensively researching the issue, Kusche concluded that the number of disappearances occurring within the Bermuda Triangle was no greater than in any other similarly trafficked area of ocean. He also boldly asserted that previous Bermuda Triangle authors didn’t do their research and either knowingly or unintentionally “made it up.”

 

Conclusion

Unexplained phenomenon and unsolved mysteries always elicit interest, more so when there are undiscovered secrets. Regardless of whether you are a believer or a sceptic, the mysterious Bermuda Triangle is a stark reminder that despite the technological advances made to date, there are still places which remain unexplained by science.

    I really hope to see a good explanation of Bermuda Triangle…

  2. Pastor Chia on Aug 10, 2017 at 8:54 am

    Is Interesting about mysterious bermuda triangle existance until now, people still find out what was happen this exorinadly phenomena cause many planes and ships disappear when pass by this mystery area.
    Sometime thing can’t explain by mankind with the logic may lead the mysterious continue, but they are thing and places from other dimension existance connecting with our world. It make mankind feel fear we are not only being existance . It make mankind to be humble and respect other being exitance living in this world.

    Although Christopher Columbus was the first to record Bermuda Triangle existence, however after so many years, it is still a mystery place in the world. It was reported that more than hundreds Boats and planes have been lost within and just outside the triangle. I was wondering is that a possibility there is another dimension of world which we can’t see it. This is because those boats and planes reported lost with no trace of any debris. Hope one day we can know the truth of this place. Thank you Cindy for sharing this interesting article.

  4. Pastor Antoinette on Aug 10, 2017 at 7:13 am

    The Bermuda Triangle is worldwide known but how come that still nobody has found out what is really happening there. It is indeed a mystery and science can not explain it. There are many theories about the Bermuda Triangle as we can see.
    I am curious if this mystery will ever be lifted… Thank you

  5. Justin Cheah on Aug 10, 2017 at 1:58 am

    Interesting article. Thank you Cindy for researching the facts and past incidents. I am somewhat baffled as to why till these days we are not able to find out what really happened? Why nobody has actually tried sending in drones to this area to find out and test what the outcome will be. Researching is important as it affects all of us, just like exploring the space, equally important as to why the world is at its current shape.

  6. Mingwen on Aug 10, 2017 at 1:20 am

    I think human beings should focus back on Earth, do research and explore our mother Earth. We can’t even know all about our own land, why spend money to go outer space? Doesn’t make sense to me, the deep oceans, the mystery forests, how many more are left undiscovered?

  7. Andrea Lai on Aug 10, 2017 at 12:15 am

    I first got to know of Bermuda Triangle when watched the magic of David Copperfield, back in my teens. The Bermuda Triangle indeed a very mysterious region in discovery even though profession found difficulty in solving. Other than that, in the article stated of some Geography issues may link with the disappearance. That is logical statement but what intriguing was the absence of corpses or skeletons were not found when vessels were discovered. Where could have these people been? Probably be plunged into another dimension. Until now, Bermuda Triangle remained as puzzle.

  8. Eric kksiow on Aug 9, 2017 at 11:08 pm

    I knew about The Mysterious Bermuda Triangle from documentary & David Copperfield magic show ( Since my very young age ). Is an very interesting to read more about this article, unsolved mystery and until today Scientists can’t even explain more deep of The Mysterious Bermuda Triangle.

    Thank You Cindy for doing more re-search of this topic.

    Mysteries and unsolved phenomena are interesting and one has to decide whether to believe or not believe.

    As the Bermuda Triangle a very much used sea lane, I tend to believe that the listed accidents or disappearance may not be that many relative to other areas.

    But records like ships disappearing and reappearing in Portugal without crew nor soul on board but in pristine conditions with cargo intact is something to ponder.

    Nature and her phenomena are hard to comprehend at times and it is important that if there are things unexplained, it is best left to what it is and respect be paid to such places.

  10. Pastor Henry Ooi on Aug 9, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    The Bermuda Triangle has been a much talked about place internationally for decades. Movies have been made revolving around the disappearances of crafts in this area. Yet after so long no one, no scientist or no government body has any proof to the mystery surrounding it. I would have thought that with modern day state-of-the-art equipment someone would venture out to unravel the causes of the disappearances. Maybe no one dares to or maybe there is no profit in it.

  11. pammie yap on Aug 9, 2017 at 10:10 pm

    The part where I find it mysterious is where the crew vanished but the vessel is still intact. Even if it sank, I am sure there will be bodies inside. I have seen documentaries where people find remains inside sunken vessels.

    If would be interesting to know if there are any scientists or research teams that are still researching the actual reasons for those disappearances.

    I love mysteries, because it makes me see and think from different perspective. Perhaps, it’s some special place that leads to another unseen dimension. Just like in the case of Bigfoot, unexplained and intriguing.

  12. nicholas on Aug 9, 2017 at 9:59 pm

    Bermuda Triangle is definitely another mysterious phenomena that still being question. It always give me the thought that anything pass through will be disappeared and I just thought they would go to another dimension and never returned.

    So far, scientists have not come up with clear reasons to explain the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. Even though this area has the most tragic unexplained deaths of all time it can all have natural explanations as mentioned in the article. It should be noted that not much disappearances or deaths have taken place lately in this area as today is more technically advanced. Today the Bermuda Triangle is an area where plenty of ships and aircrafts pass through regularly without any problems. It has also been noted that most of the incidents that are said to have taken place here are not true by some.

    This place will remain as mysterious legend for may people.

  13. Pastor Albert on Aug 9, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    Very interesting article indeed, I’m always very interested with the mysterious cases because there is always unsolved and left it hanging for years, or even decades.

    When things happened in the world, and it appeared to be mysterious, it kinda left some imagination space for all of us, like, is that the work of Alien? or they were sucked into like some dimension? Or they traveled to different timezone of the world? Or they were sent to outer space or other planet by a mysterious force? or any other reason? It sounds really interesting, it will definitely be great if I have the chance to participate in a project like this.

    I would not surprise if there are really third or forth or even more dimensions, because Buddha has said that there are more than 1 universe, probably it is countless universe, so if just this universe we already haven’t explore 100%, what more about other universe, and put the universe aside, even to the planet we are living in for billions of years, we have yet to explore everything, what more we talk about something so huge.

    I’m sure it will be mind blowing to all of us if one day, these mysterious cases are solved, probably it will bring us to another whole new level of understanding about this world, and I’m waiting for this day to come.

  14. Anne Ong on Aug 2, 2017 at 10:26 pm

    i have always read and watched documentaries about Bermuda Triangle and i find them very interesting and very mysterious, Thank you very much Rinpoche,Cindy and blog team for this very interesting article for everyone to read.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 24, 2017 at 11:34 pm

    The Bermuda Triangle, often conjures the notion that people who enter it may not leave it to tell the tale. Almost like a portal to another dimension, The Bermuda Triangle has intrigued many. I wonder has any research submarines researched that area and check out its depths?

  16. Paul Yap on Jul 24, 2017 at 9:48 pm

    The stories of Bermuda are always mysterious and fascinating. Many believe that the strange encounters in Bermuda Triangle were the act of aliens. I believe that many missing ships and airplane have gone into a difference dimension, which connect our world to others. Otherwise, how could many of the planes and ships go missing without any clues and trace for years?

  17. Edwin Tan on Jul 24, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Pardon my ignorance, but shouldn’t with the tech advances, send in drones or unmanned ships or submarines to investigate? Or maybe the mystery is already solved?

    I am always a huge fan, and if the mystery is not solved, I do wish to be able to experience it myself by crossing the seas or flying over to see what actually happens.

    This Bermuda Triangle mystery has been on my mind since i was 12! Do hope more lights can be shed on the disappearances.

    If it is alternate realms.. it will be a huge discovery! hehe.. imagine those lost crew due to fog was actually there but not able to be seen by the other due to parallel universe..

    Anyway, just part of my imaginative mind. Thank you for the wonderful article.

    Interesting post.I love reading anything regarding these mysterious Bermuda Triangle from books to news.The Bermuda Triangle is a large area of ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. Over centuries,there were dozens of ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Many scientists have attempted to theorize what makes the place so dangerous.None came to conclusion.The mystery of Bermuda Triangle still remains unsolved and is one of athe world’s greatest mysteries.
    There are many theories and explanations to the disappearance and in the infamous region has repeatedly been blamed on the paranormal.
    Thank you Cindy for sharing these interesting post.

    There is no straightforward answer to the disappearance of vessels within the Bermuda Triangle. All the authors have only written about what has been observed but no explanations or substantial theories. Thus, the area remains a mystery with more leaning towards alien theories. This has intrigue me for the last 40 years and the hypothesis and theories have not brought any closer explanations. Still intriguing and mysterious.

    This is a very interesting topic and brings back many memories of discussing this topic with my late dad. We were both fans of unsolved mystery. Our conviction of what happened to the ships and aircrafts at the Bermuda Triangle would alternate between the work of aliens or the work of evil spirit forces. Of course, it largely depends on which case we are looking at. But I think we both lean towards the work of aliens because the scale of things are larger than the normal occurrence of the unseens. I really enjoy reading this write up. Thank you, Cindy.

    Arya Nagarjuna was a famous Mahasiddha, Buddhist philosopher, and alchemist who was born 400 years after Buddha Shakyamuni’s parinirvana.

    He is known for establishing the Middle Path (Madhyamaka) Buddhist tradition, making gold to fulfil the needs of the Sangha, and retrieving the Prajnaparamita Sutra from the Naga realm.

    Today, the practical applications of Einstein’s theories include the development of the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD-players. Recognized as TIME magazine’s “Person of the Century” in 1999, Einstein’s intellect, coupled his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership. So was his passion for Buddhism and its teachings. Today we present you Einstein’s world famous quotes on Buddhism that will be of a great value to understand how much the Buddhism was close to Einstein’s heart.

    An Introduction To The Buddha Form And Iconography

    In this book, Tsem Rinpoche introduces us to a rich range of Buddha forms, providing basic information to kindle our interest in the iconography of statues –their postures, gestures and mudras, the ornaments and the implements they hold. Each one of these is a symbolic teaching in itself. Indeed the entire iconography, colour and pose of each Buddha statue combined presents a path to ultimate enlightenment.

    Everyone wants to be happy in life. Everyone wants to achieve happiness. For an athlete, for instance, his idea of ultimate happiness is to win a gold medal in the Olympics.

    For the glory of a gold medal and a few minutes on the podium with your national flag going up while they play your national anthem, you deprive yourself of the pleasure of nightlife, relationships, fun, going out with friends or even your partner. You will subject yourself to a special and stringent diet, train eight hours a day, sleep early and not stay up. You will stay away from friends and curtail many activities because you have to train and work hard. You have to push and discipline yourself.

    You really have to transform yourself and change your schedule in order to get your body ready in the next four to eight years in the hope that when the day of the Olympics arrives you will be selected to participate.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and motivating article. People can say many things about us but we will know very well how we are and how we are. We should not react to the comments people make on us.

    However, I do agree that we have to contemplate on what people say about us. If what they say about us is true, especially our bad qualities, we have to change. If it is not true, we just have to move on and ignore the comments.

    In “Compassion Conquers All”, Tsem Rinpoche shows how through the practice of “The Eight Verses of Mind Transformation”, this wish for others to be happy can engender a state of mind of supreme love, compassion and altruism. This is the mind of Bodhicitta that wishes every sentient being to be free from every suffering and to enjoy real lasting happiness, and is determined to realise this wish by achieving the state of mind of real ultimate happiness and peace (that is free from every suffering) first, and then helping all beings attain it. This state of mind of ultimate peace and real lasting happiness is called Enlightenment or Full Awakening, where one achieves the qualities of omniscience, love and ability so as to have the power and ability to help others reach this same state.

    John Eaton Calthorpe Blofeld (John Blofeld) (1913 – 1987) was a renowned writer of Chinese culture, Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and Mahayana Buddhist tradition. His literary endeavours had helped in introducing Buddhism to the Western world and inspired many to follow his path on the journey of spiritual discoveries.

    During his lifetime, John Blofeld had travelled widely around China and other countries, visited sacred mountains and monasteries, and met with hermits, sages and great Buddhist masters of various traditions. As his popularity grew, he used his fame to inspire younger writers to follow his path and helped to launch their career by writing forewords or providing constructive feedback to their maiden literary effort. Those who had the privilege to be acquainted with this extraordinary man, remembered his generosity, warmth, and sincerity. Even today, his writing and unique experiences continue to inspire others to the path of spirituality and give insight to the world of China when the refined Chinese civilisation was omnipresent

    Following our habituated way of thinking, the source of whatever happiness we seek from marriage appears to be the picture of an ideal partner. In fact, even as we embark on a long-term relationship with our partners, we already have expectations and projections on our partner. We expect to be happy when our partner conforms to our own set of norms, way of thinking, and expectations. In order to correct this mistaken view, we need to look deeply into ourselves and see that happiness does not come from holding mistaken projections and expectations. In fact, when these expectations and projections are unfulfilled, they are likely to cause us disappointment, pain, and anguish instead.

    Tsarchen Losal Gyatso (1502 – 1566 CE) was a famous master and the founder of the Tsarpa lineage of the Sakya tradition centred at Dar Drangmoche Monastery in the central Tsang province of Tibet.

    The great Tsarchen Losal Gyatso is the 21st lineage holder of the Vajrayogini tantric tradition stemming from the Mahasiddha Naropa himself. In fact, by engaging in Vajrayogini as his main practice, Tsarchen Losal Gyatso gained high realisations and went on to have several important visionary experiences associated with her. Due to his high realisations, Tsarchen also beheld pure visions of Padmasambhava, Vajrayogini, Chakrasamvara, Kalachakra, Yamantaka, other tantric deities and masters.

    This is a very interesting article to know that Mongolian astrology is closely related to Buddhism. Some of us might think astrology is a very superstitious practice but it is practised in Buddhism.

    From the scripture, our body body parts are related to different planets. In a way, it means our body and the universe are in fact one. Therefore, we should respect our environment because if our mother nature has lost its balance, our health will be affected as well.

    The most recent celebrity that was reported to have shown some interest in Buddhism is Katy Perry. People often think being a celebrity is wonderful, but behind all the smiles and the beauty, there is much suffering and pain… We have seen it many times, and celebrities who fail to cope with the stress and public pressure often take up dangerous habits or suicidal. I’m not claiming that I know of Katy Perry’s life and difficulties, but as long as we are all in samsara, we are all subjected to suffering.

    The International Mountain Museum (IMM) in Pokhara, Nepal isq all about the 14 highest mountains in the world…all of them are at least 8,000 meters in height! Those interested in mountaineering would come to Pokhara as most of the trekking routes start from there.

    Out of the top 14 mountains, 8 are within Nepal! Since 1920 (when mountaineering was still new to the world) many researchers would come to this beautiful country to do research on things like how the mountains were formed…what the exact height of the mountain is…what minerals can be found there etc.

    Malaysia adopts a constitutional monarchy system that is a mixture of hereditary and elected monarchs. Malaysia consists of several administrative regions across thirteen states and three federal territories. Nine states are ruled by monarchs, four states are supervised by a Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor, and the Federal Government controls the remaining three federal territories.

    Meditation puts children in touch with their most natural condition, which is free, expressive, cooperative, loving and peaceful. This is a direct counter for everything else in society that encourages them to think of only “me, me, me” from a young age, and to engage in competition which encourages division. Hence meditation is something our world desperately needs because the competition we teach children will become greed when they are adults competing to win. It’s this greed and need to win that is slowly killing our planet and destroying all of our natural resources. Hence meditation is one of the most valuable habits a child can be encouraged to learn and integrate as part of their daily life.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
