Catholic Saints and Tibetan Yogis

Spring springs... springing spring! (English translation: the spring season has arrived with a bounce in its step freeing itself from the clutches of winter....)

Close your eyes for a moment and envision that you and your highest potential are searching for each other.... what is in the way? That is your obstacle.

What did the great Catholic meditator saints have in common with Tibetan yogis and yoginis?... they were all practicing Tantra! Their tantric inner union with higher being such as God, or Buddhist deities was the same, only under different loyalties. The bliss states, samadhi states same. One life as a Catholic hermit, another life... as a mountain yogin... it all depends on the support system available at the time. ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~
""Was hatten die großen meditierenden katholischen Heiligen mit den tibetischen Yogis und Yoginis gemeinsam?... Sie alle übten sich im Tantra! Ihre innere tantrische Vereinigung mit dem höheren Wesen, wie Gott oder den buddhistischen Gottheiten, war dieselbe, nur die Loyalität lag woanders. Die Zustände der Glückseligkeit und des Samadhi... dasselbe. Das eine Leben als katholische(r) Einsiedler(in), das andere als Yogi im Gebirge... es hing alles vom Unterstützungssystem der jeweiligen Zeit ab." - Domo Geshe Rinpoche ---
