From the Buddha’s perspective of wisdom, an understanding of emptiness, the wisdom realizing emptiness, the emptiness of an inherently existent self of persons, and the emptiness of an inherently existent self of phenomena, desire, lust and attachment are very, very poisonous states of mind. Desire affects the mind, the speech and the body in the following way. Attachment exaggerates the qualities of objects of a self and of others, of self of persons and a self of phenomena. It wrongly imputes and implies that there are qualities present when there are not. It does not understand death and impermanence, and it does not understand it’s own miserable condition. All contaminated phenomena are suffering and impermanent.

Having a body, speech and mind, a mental continuum contaminated by desire is actually a very miserable and unfortunate position to be in. It is an unhappy and unfavorable reality. In reality, everyone wants to be happy and free from suffering. Desire however brings a disaster upon the self, the environment and others. These gross conceptions of a self, of an inherently existent I and mine are very problematic at the moment.

Let’s tackle the problem of sexual lust, in a meaningful way. First of all, how does lust overtake and affect one’s ability to see things clearly, with an objective and balanced understanding of the nature of reality. The nature of reality is that all beings, all sentient beings are actually pervaded by a state of suffering. There are three types of suffering that affect sentient beings. Firstly, the suffering of suffering. Secondly, the suffering of change. Thirdly, the pervasive type of suffering.

Ordinary man, woman, child, does not comprehend or appreciate this type of wisdom. Firstly, life does not end with the disintegration of the gross human form, or any gross form. Ask yourself this? Does the mind of a being for the most part, from this point of view, actually reside at the heart, within the subtle wind element? Does the mind actually, in reality, affect the winds, the subtle winds of the body? Or space itself?

When the mind is overtaken by desire and lust, one is forced into a situation that hankers after an attachment to have sexual intercourse with another being. This is purely to experience one’s own orgasm. It cares little if anything at all about the pleasure of another being. What is worse, is it does not understand, appreciate or comprehend how this action of sexual conduct causes beings within the bardo to become affected themselves by attachment/desire, aggression and ignorance.

The being in the bardo, waiting to take rebirth, sees the sexual organs, the genetalia of the beings in sexual contact and becomes crazed by the three poisons, which then forces them into a state of conception.

This is to take rebirth, without bodhicitta, without the mind aspiring or engaging towards the state of enlightenment, in a negative way, in a miserable and unhappy way. So the sexual act itself does nothing to bring pleasure to oneself, the partner or the child.

The feelings of an ordinary orgasm are actually in reality, very corrupted and blind, and not aware of the suffering nature of reality, of cyclic existence. This means to be forced endlessly, with no recognized understanding of the solution through suffering lifetimes, from beginingless time, continuously, until one accepts the outstanding qualities and achievements of a fully enlightened state of perfection, the omniscient wisdom and compassion of an awakened Buddha, and makes the conscientious commitment to engage in the path to the cessation of suffering, the three higher trainings and possibly the deeds of a Bodhisattva, the six perfections and the four means of gathering disciples.

Lust brings no satisfaction. It is the opposite feeling to the state of contentment and satisfaction.

Desire hankers after and becomes attached to the objects of others. It seeks to take over and to possess them. It behaves in the manner of a thief, desiring to control what does not belong to them. It enacts an extremism, and covets thought processes, harmful thoughts are wrong view.

Having become affected by desire, the opposite of a state of happiness, satisfaction, the being then engages in sexual actions, desirous actions that produce misery for oneself and others. Where to from here? This miserable environmental condition must be abandoned from within to find a stable pathway out of the cycle of misery, of suffering, of existence and non-existence. This can only happen through engaging in a pathway of the opposite nature, making the firm decision to abandon suffering and it’s causes, and engaging the path to the cessation of suffering, for the purposes of attaining liberation from cyclic existence and enlightenment.

There is a solution to suffering, but it involves a resolute commitment to consistently abandon from within, through a proper understanding of the Guru, the Three Jewels, through the correct way of listening, the actual internal causes of suffering. Both happiness and suffering, in reality come from and are caused by the state of the mind itself.

It is only through the path of meditation, through abandoning this outrageous attachment to the objects of the sensory perception, that we can begin to understand, to adopt the pathway and it’s causes to peace and to abandon the causes and path of an ordinary body, speech and mind trapped within the suffering nature of cyclic existence.

This may, at the outset, appear to be a lengthy discussion, but in reality, the reality of the global environmental condition at the moment, is one of utter catastrophe and oblivion.

Why? Humans have created the most appalling situation with the reality of these nuclear power plants. Let’s just consider. Knowledge itself, the type relied upon by the ordinary western scientist is impermanent. If these nuclear plants are not maintained forever, every moment, every day, every plant, everywhere, the planet will be destroyed in the most disastrous way, through a thorough the most complex, heartbreaking and hellish incineration of all beings within this reality.

What on earth have these so called visionaries, these practitioners of nuclear understanding been thinking? It is at best the most utterly selfish reality the Buddhas have ever seen. Just take, for example, the situation where it becomes impossible to maintain these nuclear facilities, say, for an example, through the outbreak of disease, or the inability of children to comprehend nuclear technology? What then? Nuclear apocalypse, the end of planet earth and the solar system? Where on earth are you beings who created this ridiculously dangerous reality going to take rebirth forever and ever? So this is the outrageous reality you have created. This totally day to day, holocaustalistic threat to the planet, that virtually requires an eternal solution of nuclear understanding to take care of just simply to avoid the end of the earth as an inhabitable region. In the space of what time frame, did you idiots bring on the onset and eternal worry of this nuclear catastrophe. Just one generation was it, after the first atomic test?

At present, radiation levels from France nuclear reactors are at abominable levels and are adversely affecting all life-form on the planet. This is one of the causes for these unbearable outbreaks of cancer. Radiation from nuclear facilities goes unreported and to the ordinary mind, unrecognized, on a daily basis, however the actual devastation upon the body, speech and mind of beings is utterly catastrophic.

The only way out of the nuclear holocaust, the apocalyptic condition and reality is to rely completely on the wisdom and compassion of the enlightened reality, the fully enlightened beings, the awakened ones. What are your Governments doing about preserving lifetime after lifetime, generation after generation and day after day, the prevention of a catastrophic nuclear breakdown and destruction? From the Buddhas understanding, not enough. The cooling systems are not being maintained properly.

Furthermore, how to continue educating people lifetime after lifetime in this selfish, rough and ready, apocalyptically destructive science? Just to work day after day in these nuclear power plants is to enter an appalling reality of confusion, instability, and hell.

Presently mankind has no method to get rid of this nuclear disaster. If man had engaged in a pathway out of suffering, through a proper, loyal, appreciative and consistent reliance upon the loving kindness, wisdom, patience ethics and compassion of the Buddhas, we would never had needed, we in reality never required such an abomination of the use of the word, energy. This is not a constructive or healthy energy, and is, in reality of no benefit to oneself or others.

Not listening is not an option.

Getting back to the understanding of the nature of reality. That all phenomena are empty of inherent existence. Nuclear scientists are of the view point that radiation can be contained. How so? All phenomena are empty of inherent existence. This means the radiation is also empty of inherent existence. Why do so few people study and understand the heart sutra? One needs a thorough understanding of how the recitation of such a sutra, the sutra of wisdom, the heart sutra, can purify such suffering. What suffering? The suffering of being negatively affected and poisoned by radiation. Death is ordinary for those who do not practice ethics. Death is ordinary for those who do not understanding calm abiding. Death is also ordinary for those who cannot overcome a false view of an inherently existent self, of a false view of the self and of phenomena. One needs to penetrate the reality through realizing the selflessness of persons and of phenomena. One must let go of attachment, desire, hatred, self grasping and self cherishing, through a cutting through process where one can dissolve uncomfortable negative emotions, dissolve into emptiness, the nature of reality, the suffering contaminants of body, speech and mind, and to abandon from within the actual causes of suffering, the impurities of body, speech and mind, the ten non-virtuous actions.

These are, to cover again and again, to become constantly aware of how they arise, the following:

Do not engage in murder, theft, sexual misconduct. The three negativities of the body.

Do not engage in lies, harsh speech, divisive speech and gossip. The four negativities of speech.

Do not engage in covoutesness, harmful thoughts and wrong view. The three poisonous actions of mind.

This must be a moment by moment understanding. One needs to be fully present, aware of one’s thoughts, one’s motivation. When alone watch one’s thoughts. When in the presence of others, watch one’s speech.

Then one must purify, on a daily basis, the negativities, should they arise. If they keep arising, you are not in reality making any progress and are under constant suffering in reality. You cannot escape this cycle of misery, unless you actually engage in the spiritual path in a meaningful and conscientious way.

Understand that!

This ever present hell is just a breath away. No matter where you live on this planet, or within this solar system, that is the problem that you face.

Complete annihilation of the winds. Do you have any understanding at all of the three kayas. The nirmanakaya, the dharmakaya and the sambhogakaya? What is the effect of a nuclear holocaust, the extinction of the solar system on the three holy kayas? This must be understood.

We are all interdependent by nature. Correct or not? The Buddhas may be free of suffering, but what is your reality? It is this. Are you taking refuge yet? The food industry is important. That’s right. The clothing industry is valuable. Housing, what do without? Car manufacturing is essential. What happened to the humble candle, for example. If you call that spooky, you are really just a lunatic of stupidity. How many beings are required to function forever these nuclear facilities. It’s just such a dysfunction, it’s ridiculous. Contaminants of earth, water, space, fire, wind and space must be abandoned completely. Is this your internal reality? Why did they destroy the hydrogen option? This is the type of corruption ordinary minds have created.

Wisdom: You see, there have been some very authentic, safe, reliable, and very qualified spiritual Gurus teaching dharma. They have been touring the world with their retinues, offering initiations, empowerment’s, and general guidance on the stages of the path to Buddhahood.

Ignorance: Really, what would you know?

Wisdom: You see with the recent COVID 19 outbreak, pandemic, if you had all just kept your vows of moral conduct, stayed isolated, worn your masks when shopping, and shut up, you could have taken the Simanada Empowerment from Tenzin Gyatso, and practiced deity yoga and mantra recitation, the pathway to cessate the cause of the disease and suffering. Then Australia wouldn’t have had to take on a trillion dollar debt, (our national debt previously was nearly completely paid off).
So, you all think with your lack of faith, honesty and virtuous conduct, that a deity like Simanada, who can conquer any disease can’t do that. Ignorance thinks, either I can’t be bothered making the effort to train the mind and become familiar with virtue, and you won’t recognise the supremacy of the Buddha and his ability to solve and deal effectively with such problems.

Ignorance: Oh, why don’t you just fuck off?

Wisdom: You see, I will possibly leave you pathetic hell beings to experience your ongoing state of utter misery, but what are you going to die of now? See, unless you are a Buddha, your life as a sentient being is pervaded by suffering, because you haven’t got off your ugly arse and done something constructive to cessate the cause. So, if you would just wake up and think clearly about the four noble truths and the two truths, you would find you could practice the only path that has the ability and potential to improve your situation. That is to practice the path to the cessation of suffering, to achieve the cessation of suffering.

See, you think you can trust your GP? He is really just an atheist and an unknown quantity to the public. Atheism is extremism. It is nihilism, and denies the operation of the Three Jewels and the law of cause and effect. You, the sentient being, which has been long discussed by Shantideva, just blindly run towards suffering and it’s cause as though it is a friend; and you blindly run away from happiness and it’s cause as though it is an enemy. You see, the western scientist denies the functioning of the mind. The body is the OM, the speech is the AH and the mind is the HUM. As Lama Tsong Khapa says, you need to watch the actions of the body speech and mind and always ensure those actions you engage in are always white actions, and virtuous actions.

Today is Wednesday 19 May, 2021. Like many other days, Australians, or is it sentient beings have to put up with outrageous aggression. The neighbours behave like aggressive pigs. They agitate for a war by dumping their rubbish in my bin. Vanessa has asked them politely ever since they moved in to please abandon their aggressive and mindless actions. However, because they are quite possibly capable even of murder and much stupidity, they refuse to stop.

Why do the police behave in a similar way? I am unable call on the police for help, because their stupidity, hatred and blindness, not to mention their blatant disregard for honesty and ethics, drives them to arrest the innocent victim of such actions of madness.


We live in a society overrun by the ignorance of a self. The community itself has been driven into such laziness and apathy, that they often defend the wicked and those guilty of sin.

Today is Saturday 8 May, 2021. So, Vanessa has done two more morning sessions of 30 prostrations each day to the Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions, the Buddha Field and the Merit Field. Total prostrations to date are 90 prostrations. We started on May 5, 2021. So we are going to try and do two sessions daily, of thirty prostrations each session. Vanessa is inviting others to join her, in their own residence to accumulate merit and practice ethical discipline. One needs to rely upon one’s own store of merit and wisdom, to accumulate the causes for Buddhahood. Buddha’s are beings that appear to help sentient beings fully purify black seeds and negative instincts, which cause suffering to the body, speech and mind. One needs to accumulate merit and wisdom, by practicing the three higher trainings of ethical discipline, single pointed mental quiescence, calm abiding and concentration, and wisdom.

Afternoon Session.

Phew! We reached Happy Hour. What did you say, would you like a Whiskey with Coke Zero Vanessa?

Gorgeous, the Buddha replied.

2 point one quarter hours til lift off.

Hilarious, huh!

Evening Session Saturday 8 May, 2021.


Gosh, Vanessa turned into a funny bugger didn’t she.
‘This is really what happened after 30 more prostrations this evening. Total prostrations 120.
See, this is the body.
OM.
This is the speech.

This is the mind.

So, we have to fully purify and fully perfect the OM AH HUM.

Vanessa Anne Walsh is inviting the community to join us in the practice of prostrating to the Merit Field. One can accumulate merit and wisdom.

You start the practice by reciting the refuge prayer and generating bodhicitta.

Repeat the taking refuge and generating bodhictta prayer three times.

I go for refuge until I’m enlightened to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

From the virtuous merit I collect from practicing generosity and the other perfections

May I attain the state of a Buddha for the sake of all sentient beings.

You think you are prostrating to the holy field of merit and you prostrate your body, speech and mind three times. You can have a rest, but you repeat this ten times. You do this practice morning and night. So we are prostrating in the morning with our body, speech and mind to the holy field of merit, the Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions, thirty times, ten times in rounds of three. Then at night, you repeat this practice again the same amount of times. So, twice daily.

We are hoping to do four hundred thousand prostrations, over the next twenty years. So we can document this practice.

You dedicate and seal the merit and wisdom at the end of the practice by reciting as follows:

May I quickly become Lord Buddha and lead each and every sentient being into his enlightened realm because of the merits.
May the precious bodhi mind not yet born arise and grow. May that born have no decline but increase forever more.

Today is Wednesday 5 May, 2021. Day One: Evening practice 30 prostrations to the Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions complete.

Last night Liz Hayes presented the Under Investigation story on Boeing Airline’s 737 MAX disasters. This is the exact type of story that makes me feel happy to be a practicing Buddhist, and of course feel much compassion and concern for those not so fortunate. This is because, and I will explain my thoughts here, even the big company Boeing is guilty of ignorance and wrong view, and went to lengths to cover up and hide from the public and governments it’s fatal, flawed and ignorant set of decisions.

In an attempt to compete with Airbus, Boeing has committed much money to building the 737 MAX which is clearly flawed in it’s design. Firstly, Boeing tried to cut costs to stay competitive with Airbus. So it decided to makeover the old 737 aircraft, instead of responsibly building an aircraft that is safe to fly. Boeing attached a new fuel efficient engine to the old 737 body, but the engine didn’t fit properly onto this old craft. Boeing moved the engine forward on the body of the craft, but it’s position on the plane causes the aircraft to tilt on too high an angle, which can cause the engine to stall. See, this is like the funny point in the story, for all Boeing engineers’ clientele. Oh, not today Mummy. Can’t be bothered designing a safe aircraft today. No, not today, sweets. We just want to make some quick cash.

Boeing has installed the MCAS software to correct the design flaw of it’s 737 MAX aircraft, but the main point is it should never have committed so much of it’s operating budget to such a poorly designed remodel of the 737 aircraft. This is where Boeing’s arrogance is clear to see. Boeing has admitted that it has predicted 15 of these 737 MAX aircraft would crash. Oh, great, like one we would be flying on?

So, nearly 500 people have died on these remodelled craft, that they dare to call new. The ignorance of a self, where one fails to see that all phenomena are empty of inherent existence, whilst cause and effect and dependent airing are unfailing, is to blame for the stupor the FAA finds itself now stuck in. What makes anyone think these aircraft won’t crash again? Boeing builds many aircraft, but dying due to an aircraft’s failure, is surely a death that no-one would sanely choose. It’s like the problem of safely flying each aircraft each and every time is too big a problem now for the human to comprehend.

Oh, yeah, and just to make you feel worried about the huge amounts of cash the government has just thrown at the contaminated western scientist’s mind, Astra Zeneca is now being rolled out by Oxford University to combat coronavirus, but it has the rather nasty side effect of causing blood clotting. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-56594189

Why doesn’t the human race defeat the three poisonous states of mind instead, and choose to adopt the middle way school of Prasangika Madyamika philosophy to combat and oppose these dreadful delusions. Too stupid looks to be the answer no-me really wants to face. With apathy like this, are you sure you want the demon of death to again have it’s way?
