Mudras & Hand Symbolism: What are Mudras? Part 2

[Note: This paper contains images which may be seen as originally published at our website] The Various Traditions In these series of articles we shope to describe the mudra practices to be found in various religious practices, such as in Buddhism, and Hinduism; and in various countries rich in cultural traditions as for instance, Japan, India, China, Tibet, and Indonesia. Mudra teachings are also to be found in Christianity and in the Egyptian tradition. Contemporary development of Runic lore has also its own version of hand-gestures designed to offer psychic benefits. We will describe some of these and teach how our readers may put these mudras into practice to assist their spiritual unfoldment and the improvement of their mundane lives. Regrettably, there are many powerful mudras to be found in mystical schools and traditions that we have not been able to get access to and thus present in these articles. For instance, Chen Yen or Shingon Buddhism, which is considered as an esoteric tradition, has a rich heritage on mudra practices. These mudras are performed in conjunction with mantras and the visualization of mandalas. According to their doctrines, mudras, mantras, and mandalas represent body, speech, and mind. Chen Yen Buddhism teaches that the culture of these three aspects of the microcosm leads the practitioner to a higher spiritual state of being. Another Buddhist school that teaches mudras is the...

Afterlife Materialism

What will you do with your materialism when you pass? It is a reality that our world is driven by materialism, which unfortunately is a very real cause of distention between people. It is my belief that it has also caused problems between families nations and countries. How much longer do we need to continue on this path of destruction. Rather than being happy for an individual achieving something, whether It be wealth or success. Most individuals create a deep hatred and distain for that person. It is this negative emotion that multiplies like a cancer through the body and throughout the world. I was witness to the jealousy between several individuals because of the material issues surrounding them. Where is the joy in seeing someone happy? Let’s face facts, you cannot take the wealth with you or your material benefits from the earth plane. Money is a benefit that is steeped in evil, yet it is not the money that causes it, but the greed of the individual. If your soul has to fly, to be free and untainted by the bonds of materialism in this plane, it should disregard the heavy chains of materiality and instead seek a balance between what is needed, desired and provided. When you eventually pass to the other side of life, there will be no need to have these trinkets around you....

Blue Force Tracking – What is it and why does it rely on GPS Technology?

The term, Blue Force, is becoming common place in the world of GPS Tracking.   Blue Force refers to ‘friendly forces’ in the military – so as the term suggests, Blue Force Tracking is all about keeping track of your own men via the use of GPS Tracking technology. Blue Force Tracking (BFT) Systems are essentially made up of a GPS Tracking Device, a network of satellites and a central system / server / computer (call it what you may) that logs and interprets the data.  Combine the three individual pieces of technology and you have a solution that makes up a BFT system. A BFT System can also be known under a different name.  Some systems might be advertised as Situational Command and Control Platforms (also known as Tactical Systems).  These systems also come with a complete communications platform and can be used for emergency response teams who need to react quickly to crisis management situations.  Due to the nature of the military, it is not unreasonable to expect a Blue Force Tracking System to have to monitor up to 10,000 ‘assets’ at any one time. A Blue Force Asset could be many things, from personnel on the ground to ships or aircraft.  It could be a piece of artillery or even a building.  It is also possible that a Blue Force Tracking system could be used to locate...
