Shadow of the Dalai Lama has a lot of information about the dark side of Tibetan tantrism, which should be of interest to members of this group.

Feb. 13th, 2006 @ 09:46 am temple prostitution
Query from an academic list I'm on (figured I'd ask the sex magickians!) This person would be wanting something a little more solid than Robert Graves or Jessie Weston, I suspect, if there is in fact anything out there.

"Can anyone recommend a good resource on Temple Prostitution? My boss has declared that he wants cultural inserts to the book I'm writing on the physiology of sex, and at this point my deadline is looming so close that I'd prefer not to weed through non-authoratative sources."

Any folks on list worked with nyasa?

I had some interesting experiences last year with Kali nyasa, and I just got around to realizing that it sort of foreshadowed some of the later work with points chauds, or specifically its effects. I can't articulate this yet, and I have about 60 pages of Chaucer to read tonight, but I'll post this as a reminder to myself to think about it some more and to ask if anybody has any experiences they would like to share of nyasa.

I'm working on a research paper for a folklore and spirituals class and thought I'd share this Ezilie song from Hurston's "Tell My Horse:"

Ersulie nain nain oh! Ersulie nain nain oh!
Ersulie ya gaga gaaza, La rosee fait brode
tou temps soleil par leve La ro see fait brode
tou temps soleil par leve Ersulie nain nain oh!
Ersulie nain nain oh! Ersulie ya gaza.

I still can't do accents ague ou grave in this window, sigh...

Aug. 9th, 2005 @ 10:33 pm snippets from The Voudon Gnostic Workbook -- points-chauds and misc.
[x-posted to my journal]

I think this stuff is going to end up illuminating some theory about the points-chauds. Maybe. At this point I'm all practice and no theory, which is a very very unusual space for my little academic self to be in, so we'll see.

In a way, I find myself wishing I'd had more time with the practice without the theory, because I would have been interested in seeing what we came up with unassisted, so to speak, without this framework being imposed or revealed, depending on your perspective. Oh well lol...

from "Gnostic Zoology: From Bio-Physics to the Ojas-Organisms" (p 327 if you have "the phonebook")

"One of the basic assumptions of the magickal life-sciences is that if there are fields of force which are conscious, there are also living organisms, either of a physical or a metaphysical type, in existence and subject to magickal exploration. Technically speaking, all of gnostic physics is a form of biophysics, because we are examining consciousness-directed energy fields. But it is necessary also to move our explorations beyond the categories of physics, so that we can see the life-fields now as organic systems. These organisms are the externalizations of the Ojas system and are to be found in a variety of contexts. For the purposes of our magickal study, we can state that these organisms can be clsasified fundamentally as types of the four basic forms of Ojas.

[...]

Question: Is the magician made up of these organisms?
Answer: The magickal vehicle of the magician would certainly be composed of these organisms. However, this vehicle is generated by magickal processes and is not the same as the astral body or other karmic vehicles.

[...]

Q: Are these organisms ever inducted by magicko-radionic methods?
A: Yes. There exist special zoological initiations for this purpose. Such experiments give the magician an entry into the pure universes and hence extend his powers by menas [sic] of his becoming one with that archetypal realm."
