Buddhism & The Left Hand Path

Are any of you interested in or involved in Eastern mysticism (Buddhism, Hinduism, Traditional Chinese Religion)?

Some may not be aware of it, but Hinduism is said to be the oldest religion and mystical system (later religions actually drew from).

Therefore, we may all use elements of Eastern mysticism (pentagrams, hexagrams) without even being aware of it.

So, why would the practice of Buddhism (which stems from Hinduism) go into conflict w/ the Left Hand Path? Maybe that depends on the type of Buddhism. Here’s a clue:

"The Mahayana teachings deal with earthly desires entirely differently than the Hinayana (early) teachings do. Hinayana teachings held that earthly desires and enlightenment are two independent and opposing factors, and the two cannot coexist. Mahayana teachings turn that Hinayana principle over and say that earthly desires cannot exist independently on their own; therefore one can attain enlightenment without eliminating earthly desires.

Mahayana Buddhist teachings say that these 108 categories of earthly desires are actually one with and inseparable from enlightenment. This is because all things, even earthly desires and enlightenment, are manifestations of the unchanging reality or truth - and thus are non-dual at their source."

If I understand well, Mahayana Buddhism is compatible w/ the Left Hand Path, Satanism & Luciferianism. What do you think?

It’s my belief from studying it that Hinduism the religion stemmed from an earlier set of practical magickal methods, and was turned into a religion to grant control to the higher castes and create a reward/punishment system that people would internalise, and therefore remain placid and willing to accept a disempowered place in society.

In fact I think that’s how most ancient religions were spawned, just like basic hygeine rules (like don’t eat shellfish in hot countries, don’t have sex with lots of strangers) became associated with spiritual and then moral uncleanliness.

Some of the Hindu/yogic stuff (the chakra system, seed mantras, ayurveda, etc) works phenomenally well, but has been clogged up with dogma and an emphasis on repetition designed to prevent the gifted student from realising when they’ve outstripped the plodding “master.”

So, the mantra that works with maybe 3 repetitions is increased to many multiples of 108 each day, making people “serve their time” and when they finally reach the higher levels, the belief it was necessary and resentment of anyone who tries to cut corners combine prevent everyone from acknowledging progress without tedium.

The problem with all these religions is they disdain this level of existence and the concepts of karma rapidly become debased into an excuse for apathy, and they all emphasise some kind of ultimate dissolution of the self. That’s the polar opposite of the path I’m on, now.

JMO, I wrote about my experiences with this stuff here.

Also, as I’ve just mentioned, a number of religions have drawn from Hinduism (or simply stolen some of its elements, then claimed them as their own).

Here’s an excerpt from the Joy of Satan website. I do not support their Nazi views, nor have I joined them. I’m just sharing some of their info:

“Jewish Abraham was stolen from King Hariscandra of the Hindu Sankhayana-Sutras
Jewish Isaac was stolen from King Hariscandra’s son Rohita
The fictitious Jewish God Yaweh in this story replaced the Hindu God Varuna”
http://see_the_truth.webs.com/bible_conspiracy.htm

And here’s some information regarding the origins of the name Israel (Isis, Ra, El):

Now, compare these talismans. The first one is a Vedic (Hindu) Mars yantra. The second, a Jewish mysticism Mars seal. Keep in mind Hinduism predates Judaism. Who influenced who?

More Vedic yantras:

I’ve always felt drawn to Hinduism, and I could be wrong, but from reading I’ve always understood that Eastern Mysticism accepts the left hand path as a valid, albeit slower, path to God.

Agreeing with the Good Lady, I’ve always seen religion as a tool of control. After all, we can’t just have people running around recreating their reality willy-nilly, now can we? That’s bad business for the people who enjoy the wealth and power that comes with controlling the population.

I think those things can develop on their own, I mean there are only so many ways to make a wheel, only so many ways to make a hearth, and long before I knew about sacred geometry and yantras, I was seeing stuff like that and being given uses for it.

So I don’t think everything’s sourced from India, I think it’s more likely that the form of these things follows their function. JMO. :slight_smile:

A jewish historian also pointed out that the “star of David” was not a jewish symbol until very late.

This sums up my thoughts about buddhism and life all together in 8 hours (4 youtube videos each ~2 hours).

Buddhism to me is not a religion but a way to enjoy life to its fullest with the lessest suffering.

It is a way to clean the soul and make it pure. Taking life and the happenings in the life to learn from and to ascend rather than forcing changes through other energys such as angels demons or what ever. Infact using what god gives you to learn from. Like rather learn to love the ones the most that u happen to hate the most. Instead of just course them to death. This is how you heal a soul rather than putting them back in the reincarnation list to then manifest again as a bad soul.

It is a system that could heal the world and get rid of anything that the usual human call bad if everyone would use it.

It is science

I was originally Catholic, but I now follow a blend of beliefs from Hinduism, Native American Shamanism, and the general LHP. But I have read that Hinduism is the oldest religion, but their is actually much archaeological evidence to support claims made in the Ramyama. The Sri Rama land bridge, the River Saraswati, and various other findings.

It does represent a trinity of creation, as the basis of the religion. But I find it interesting by it speaking of how man can become either Godlike(Deva) and live in the Abode of Brahma, or become a “Divine being of darkness”(Asura).

And I also second what was already said about Hinduism!

Can someone please tell me what the path of Vamachara is?

Simply put, its the Left hand path in various Indian religions that can be likened to Tantra.

Alright,but what’s the most not-simply put version?I’m still a bit in the dark on it.

Albeit,understand that I am inmeasurably grateful for every fragment of information given.

There’s tons of info about this online. :wink:

@LadyEva But I don’t wanna!Having people tell me makes it feel better…OK,even I see how childish that sounds.I’m gonna get to work…

@Globalitz Thank you so much!I’ll do my best to hunt down all three.And I know that I’ll have proper spiritual backup to help.

I was trying to be helpful, not telling you off! :stuck_out_tongue:

There’s so much good stuff online and I don’t want you to be missing it.

Kundalini Tantra is great, a month by month practice to open the Chakras and get the kundalini going. Lots of great info on the Chakras also, Sinister Yogis shows the myth of “holy”(right hand path) Yogi who is selfless is a complete myth. Must reads both of them, imo.
