Hello honey. Age, 104 years, not really, but anyway. Blood pressure today 124 over 85 with a heart rate of 76.

What’s my secret?

A diet of Tibetan tea and Tsampa.

So nourishing and delicious. A superfood as well.
Three weeks of this and then what? More meditation on Chenrezig.

How to make Tibetan Tea and Tsampa? Stay tuned.

What to do when you won’t turn to the deity for medical help.

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.

You Beverly Hills cops. You think you’re so in the know, but you never check for evidence. Just like Alan Molloy.

Still laughing? Let’s go over this again.

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.
