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.
AH
This is the mind.
HUM.
So, we have to fully purify and fully perfect the OM AH HUM.
The flesh is just clothing.

Invitation to Prostrate to the Merit Field

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?

This evening I tuned into Channel Nine’s documentary on Britney Spears, called Framing Britney Spears. As I reflect upon what appears to be community concern over Britney’s mental state and of course her health and well being, I find myself asking the question to His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, why is Britney so unhappy?

We all understand back just before 2008, Britney lost custody of her two children. Hard of course, but firstly, what did Britney do wrong to Justin Timberlake earlier to cause such a nasty split and then what else went wrong with Federline? Is Britney sinning, which of course is the cause giving rise to such suffering?

Secondly, when Britney’s father, Jamie took over as custodian of her estate, he appears to have stepped back into her life when things were not going too well. So Jamie Spears may well have tried to help her. This appears to be why the courts refuse to give control of the finances back to Britney. Why then does Britney show no gratitude towards her father? For some time now, Jamie has been managing Britney’s career. Britney is making some money, but she may well be proven to be very divisive, because when she walked off stage at the beginning of another year heralded as being Queen of Las Vegas, she let down a big group of supporters.

Why does Britney not just thank her father for his ongoing concern? What’s he doing wrong? Having family support, if it is healthy, is a good thing.
