The Wondrous Guelaguetza of Mexico

00:17:00

The Wondrous Guelaguetza of Mexico

Guelaguetza represents the longstanding, great occasion where native Oaxacans worshipped the ancient goddess of maize “Xilonen.” In order to pray for a bountiful harvest in the coming months, the people would gather and hold ceremonies and rituals. The modern-day festival is dedicated to the goddess of maize called “Centeotl”. The word “Guelaguetza” comes from a Zapotec term meaning “reciprocal exchange of gifts and services.” In other words, it is an event celebrating the spirit of sharing and giving, which is what makes a family, community, and county strong.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 5 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

Maya is as powerful as Buddha, It’s just he lacks love, he lacks compassion. Buddha has compassion and love and power. He (Maya) has only power. All kinds of things that are just eating up people and animals, all beings on this planet. And you do one thing wrong, you so another; one thing leads to another, and you just can’t get up. We are also accusing Maya, but actually he’s doing his job; he has to like that. Because of the situation that he created, it makes you feel loving and kind to the victims. And them beware yourself, what you are doing or not doing.

From Sufism’s Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 1 of 2

From Sufism’s Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 1 of 2

“I am God.” Some people think this is a great pretension, but “I am God” is in fact a great humility. Those who say, instead, “I am a servant of God” believe that two exist, themselves and God. But those who say, “I am God” have become nothing and have cast themselves to the winds. They say, “I am God” meaning, “I am not, God is all. There is no existence but God. I have lost all separation. I am nothing.” In this the humility is greater.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 4 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

Only the sage knows that. Even the sage incarnated into a human body still has this Bodhi seed inside; enlightening seed inside never dies. That’s why I told you, if you stay in this stage and if you die, you still can come back and continue. But if you’re too proud and believe you are a sage already, you’re cut off. Then you’re done. All the ghosts and demons will pounce upon you, take off all your merit, and you’ll be done with. So, the Buddha, although He had been reincarnating as animals, insects, and humans, even kings of Heaven, He had never forgotten.

Multi-part Series on Ancient Predictions about our Planet: Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 45 - The Prophetic Drawings of Argentinian Seer Benjamín Solari Parravicini

Called “the Nostradamus of the Americas,” Benjamin Solari Parravicini from Argentina was a talented yet humble artist who made extraordinary prophecies about the world’s future. What made his clairvoyance even more fascinating was that it was expressed artistically through hundreds of drawings which were accompanied by short, handwritten messages. Benjamin Solari Parravicini was born in 1898 in Buenos Aires. When he was a child, he said that he conversed with beings such as angels and fairies. His concerned father, a psychiatrist, found that his son’s mental health was normal.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 3 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

When the person’s mind becomes clear, unveiled, bright and penetrating, an internal Light will shine forth and turn everything in the ten directions into the color of Jamburiver gold. All the various species of beings will be transformed into Tathagatas. He will see Vairochana Buddha seated upon a platform of celestial Light, surrounded by a thousand Buddhas. Further, the person uses his mind to investigate this clear discernment until the pure light no longer disperse. He will suddenly be able to see various things appear in a dark room at night, just as if it were daytime. This is a temporary state and does not indicate sagehood. If he considers himself a sage, then he will be under demonic influence.

Selection from Theosophy’s Sacred Teachings: “The Voice of the Silence,” Fragment II - The Two Paths, Part 2 of 2

Selection from Theosophy’s Sacred Teachings: “The Voice of the Silence,” Fragment II - The Two Paths, Part 2 of 2

Be humble, if thou would attain to Wisdom. Be humbler still, when Wisdom thou have mastered. Be like the Ocean which receives all streams and rivers. The Ocean’s might calm remains unmoved; it feels them not. Restrain by thy Divine thy lower Self. Restrain by the Eternal the Divine. Aye, great is he, who is the slayer of desire. Still greater he, in whom the Self Divine has slain the very knowledge of desire. Guard thou the Lower lest it soil the Higher. The way to final freedom is within thy “Self.” That way begins and ends outside of Self. Unpraised by men and humble is the mother of all Rivers, in Tirthika’s (Brahman ascetics) proud sight; empty the human form though filled with Amrita’s (immortality) sweet waters, in the sight of fools. In addition, the birth-place of the sacred rivers is the sacred land, and he who Wisdom has, is honored by all men.

Traditional Instrument: Soulful Armenian Duduk

Melodies emanating from the duduk are able to touch our hearts in a profound way that makes us yearn for something bigger than ourselves, for that ultimate love we are always searching for, the true love that every soul desires. The Duduk is one of the oldest double reed instruments in the world. Capable of a wide range of melodies and with its powerful depth of sound, the duduk can create lively rhythmic dance tunes or expressive soul-wrenching songs. In 2005, UNESCO proclaimed the Armenian duduk and its music as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

We are honored to feature the insightful perspectives of Dr. Lee Yu-Ming, a vegan TCM physician in Hong Kong, that will provide us with an introduction to the age-old Chinese healing art that he practices. Traditional Chinese Medicine’s origin dates back thousands of years, and this science emphasizes health maintenance and prevention of illness. This healing system relies on four diagnostic methods and is based on eight key principles. The diagnostic procedures are used to observe the signs and symptoms of an illness, while the principles are employed to summarize and analyze the observations to help the doctor find out the cause of the disease.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 2 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

But if your ego misleads you, makes you think that you are a sage, a saint, a higher-level saint, then the demons can come and make use of that and harm you. And spiritual loss is worse than losing a thousand lives, bodily. Very difficult to find that again. Very difficult to find a Master already. If you lose your spiritual power, it's even worse; then you cannot find another Master, because you will be so blurred now. You will not understand that you have to find a Master or anything, anymore. You're just completely mixed into the six paths of existence. You never think of anything spiritual or finding a Master even. You completely forget your purpose to be born as human.
