What are your negative characteristics? (For example, fear, depression, rage, addiction, unwisdom). Overcome them. Which positive thoughts help you?

The old weaver

In India, there lived an old man, whose name was Tantipa. By profession he was a weaver. He made many beautiful woven rugs and blankets in his life. But now in the age his hands were stiff. He could no longer practice his profession. Now he was missing a task. Tantipa sat alone in his hut. His wife had died several years ago. His profession and his wife had been his purpose in life. He had children, but the children went their own ways, and wanted to have nothing to do with him. The only thing they did for their old father, was to give him something to eat every day. Externally Tantipa had enough to live on, but inside he was bored. Tantipa lived many years sadly to himself. Loudly he complained his cruel fate.

Then one day a yogi came and heard Tantipa lament. He said to him, "You're a fool. You don´t see the great treasure in your life. You could live as a yogi and develop your inner happiness. Through your daily yoga practice you could get a meaningful age. Instead of using the big opportunity, you spend your days complaining about your fate and increase your pain." Tantipa knew that the way of inner happiness exists. The ideal of life of Hinduism is to learn in the youth, to work as an adult, to have a family, and to attain enlightenment at the end of the life. Tantipa realized that the yogi was right. He asked the yogi for the right exercises for him, and immediately began an intense spiritual practice.

In his career as a weaver Tantipa had been very busy. He had worked hard and with endurance. These qualities brought him fast forward on his path of yoga. Tantipa practiced diligently every day reading, going, yoga, meditation and positiv thinking. After twelve years he reached enlightenment. All internal tensions broke up, and his Kundalini energy began to flow. His body was full of energy and his mind full of happiness. He radiated love and light. All people came to see him, to hear his wisdom and to get some of his good energy. Tantipa became never bored again. He was very happy about his well-used life on earth.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Proceed with strength and perseverance. The force is with you. Success.

Self-discipline can be trained and improved. Concentrate on your positive goals. How can you reach your goals? Make a good plan and put it into effect every day. After a few weeks your mind will get used to it. Then following it will get easier. You can take the path of a positive life over a longer period of time. That’s how winners live! Be a winner! Amitabha gives all people the strength to win if they really want to achieve their goals. Connect with Buddha Amitabha and your victory is certain. Proceed with strength.

It may seem that the speaking of the Amitabha mantra is like pouring water onto a stone. But a steady stream of droplets carve stone. The mantra will dissolve your energy blockages and bring you into the light. It will be a great beneft for you. Proceed with patience and perseverance. (Freely quoted from Buddhism krass, page 32. )


Comment = What are your spiritual goals? Which path leads you to the achieving of your goals. Amitabha Buddhism means leading a disciplined life. We shouldn’t demand too little or too much of ourselves. We should do our spiritual practice in a way that is appropriate for each of us. We should do exercises every day that will allow us to grow in life. We should live a spiritual life. Then victory is certain. One day we will win.

We will know that our efforts have paid off. We will have huge benefits for a relatively small amount of effort. Enlightenment is an immeasurable benefit. To live in light is an immeasurably good thing. All-encompasing love is a gift. Every journey starts with a single step. The first step is to make a clear desciion. What is your descion today?

Make a clear decision and put it into action. That is how winners live. Become a winner. Go get your victory. Never give up and you will reach your goal. “My spiritual goal is… My way to victory is… My deed today is…”
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Be gentle with yourself. Be gentle with others. Being gentle is the way to inner happiness.

Mother Meera

Mother Meera, born Kamala Reddy (born 26 December 1960) is believed by her devotees to be an embodiment (Avatar) of the Divine Mother (Shakti or Devi). Born in Chandepalle a small village in Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, India, she had her first samādhi, a state of complete spiritual absorption, at the age of six, which lasted for a whole day. In 1974 Mother Meera came to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Puducherry, India, of which he was a member. There she first met Westerners and started to give Darshan. In 1979 she was invited by her first devotees to Canada, where she went several times. In 1981 she made her first trip to West Germany, where she settled down a year later. She married a German in 1982. She visits the United States on a regular basis. Mother Meera receives thousands of visitors of all religions for darshan which she conducts in total silence. Her darshan consists of a ritual, where she will touch a person's head, and then look into their eyes. During this process, she reportedly 'unties knots' in the person's subtle system and permeates them with light.

”It isn’t necessary to come to me, I can help everywhere.” (The important thing is to connect to her with a mantra, a prayer, or meditation).

”I accept everyone who comes to me genuinely.”

”You can enjoy material life, but remember it is the divine who bring it to you. “ (Experience joy as a part of the spiritual way).

"Every religion has its cornerstone books. It is helpful to read these books from every religion.” (You can find truth in every religion)

"My work is for the whole world."

"All those who come to me for Darshan get what they need."

"Praying always helps."
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Bring joy into your life. What do you need to proceed positively on your journey? Do what you feel like to get through the day. What do you need? What do you feel like doing?

Tantra Yoga


Tantra yoga teaches the five pleasures sex (maithuna), meat (mamsa), fish (matsya), wine (madya) and mudra (yoga exercises). In the west tantra yoga is interpreted as a spiritual method where sexuality and the enjoyment of meat are allowed. In traditional Indian yoga fish and meat and alcohol are not allowed. Indian yogis are normally vegetarians. Nils doesn’t eat meat. He makes exceptions if he goes out to eat or is invited to someone’s house.

Sex is a controversial topic. There are those who are for sexuality, and those against it, and those who take a middle position. A middle position is if a yogi takes periods of his or her life to meditate and others to live in a relationship. Tantra yoga is the path of healing relationships. Two people can heal one another through tantra yoga. This path is very important for people in the west who are extremely tense on the inside.

Healing occurs when sexual energy is held inside for a longer period of time. Then energy turns inward, releases all tension and both partners are happy and are healed. Through meditative concentration, energy can be sent to the injured or sick areas and thus healed. Normally energy finds the optimal way of healing on its own. Both partners don’t need to do anything except have sex the right way. Two tantra yogis have sex in a way that ejaculation occurs after an hour or more. How this happens, both partners have to find out on their own.

Tantra yoga only takes on a healing aspect if it is practiced in the context of a positive relationship. Tantra yoga should be combined with spirituality, honesty and love. Both partners have to be sensitive with their sexuality in order to come to healing and enlightenment that way. The main source of energy comes from states of peace and quiet, from daily spiritual rituals and all-encompassing love. It is difficult to maintain these three things in the hectic western world. Tantra yoga should be practiced under the guidance of an enlightened master. Spiritual people who live in a relationship should connect with an enlightened master every day. When encountering problems he or she should call on a master and deal from feelings of righteousness and wisdom.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.
