yesteday and today_ hoje com 24 anos vive em Madrid em anominato, fugiu do mosteiro de sera, mas isso não é nada de raro no budismo. Aos 18 anos já podia fazer o que lhe apetecia_ e quantos jovens não fazem o mesmo. Há mesmo o caso de Tulkus nunca poêm os pés no mosteiro para onde é suposto irem.
_ I doesn’t think Osel has turned back on Buddhism; rather, has turned back on the past in order to approach future needs of sentient beings.....
---------------------------------A vida dele já deu um livro e pelos vistos ainda dará outro(s). Para quem gosta de biografias são bons livros para ler, sobretudo o 2º q têm mesmo uma visão interessante em como um ramo do judaismo tb acredita na reencarnação.
"certain media find ways to sensationalize and exaggerate an unusual story. So I hope that what appears in news print is not read and taken too literally. Don’t believe everything that is written! Experience shows that however hard one tries in interviews to sincerely and honestly convey key information, the printed result can tend towards sensationalism to get the most attention. FPMT is doing a great job and Lama Zopa is an immensely special person - very inspiring and a great yogi. Personally, my job is to find new ways in which to discover the true nature of our being. There is no separation between myself and FPMT — we are all working together in so many aspects and terrains. Humanity is our office. You can see the letter from Osel here.
Reincarnation tells the remarkable story of a child destined to become one of the most important and unusual spiritual leaders of our time. Osel Hita Torres became the focus of world attention when he was recognized by the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of Lama Yeshe (beloved teacher and author of Introduction to Tantra, and others), who died in California in March 1984. This story tells of Lama Yeshe's life, death, and rebirth as the little Lama Osel, while explaining the controversial phenomenon of reincarnation in a clear, engaging, and practical way.
Mackenzie briefly reviews the lives of people she believes are reincarnations of Tibetan lamas. What makes her book of special interest is that these people live in the West, while previous reincarnations have been in the East. For example, her first chapter examines the life of a Canadian recognized in his childhood as such a reincarnation. The account of a woman from Maryland who is a tulka is both candid about the problems she has faced and interesting in its feminist perspective on the subject. Along the way, Mackenzie examines the views of Western psychologists, scientists, and religious leaders on reincarnation. Though portions of the book may seem strange to many Western readers, it is recommended for libraries seeking supplemental material relating to Tibetan views of reincarnation.
