DIVINE Intervention

Yesterday (20 April ’11) this Blog became off the Net by which WordPress said that I’ve violated

their term —– ? ? ?

With my inquiry they explained, my blog is having many Spam comments on it and unless I remove them

the service wouldn’t be resumed. —– ? ? ?

WordPress got their own Spam filter Akismet which is boasting so much thousand of Spams has been

filtered out, yet still they showed some more spam in my Dashboard.

My understanding was, those short comments might be genuine, hence WP asking me to distinguish.

Some Spammer is a kind of amateur while web surfing (since it’s his hobby and anyhow spending so

much time on front of a screen) might got the idea to supplement his income while leaving his URL as a

visitor’s name and anybody click his name it might linked to such as poker site.

He might get some commission by the number of visitors there. Still, unless a reader click his name

it wouldn’t link to the dubious site.  It is harmless.


Even a spammer has his right to seek the truth in Zen Buddhism. Why not.

Many famous Buddhists monk used to be a bloody warrior or notorious womaniser before.

And because of its past, they came to Buddhism to seek a peace. —–The one born innocent and having

smooth event-less (rather boring) life —– it’s peaceful enough. He doesn’t need the Buddhism.

But the one who is having rather bumpy ride in his life, is looking for a different way of the life and for a

start, came to a Zen Blog like here. He may not an eloquent talker (if so, he have had different job already)

hence just left a short comment of “It’s nice” kind. —– I still obliged to say Thank you.

He was a visitor, which makes no difference to an eloquent Zen Talker.


Strangely you might think, I knew this (suddenly all the two years writing disappears) is going to

happen soon. A week ago, I’ve asked a friend, James Stevens of SPC.org who is running such as

OWN, a community WiFi networking movement, to archive all of my Blog in their huge HDD.

( I’m providing electrical, mechanical adaptation, modification to help them, which I’m good at 🙂 )

And all of my recent posts were first written as Open Office Documents and automatically saved.

Therefore, I’m ready to move to another domain fully intact.

—– And as it really happened, it must be the Divine intervention, me to move to independent

site, while re-organizing the sorting, indexing system.

(Though, I have no idea how big the task would be :-D)


It seems, as this Blog started with sheer coincidence, yet another coincidence like this must be the

another direction given by the Dharma. I myself is in fact puzzling why like this happen —– could

just be a sheer coincidence though, don’t ask too much. —– As it happened it happened.

Just follow and live.   So that, I have no complaint. And I know, a good reader like you are seeing

the same phenomena in your life as well. This is what the Life to be a Buddhist. Isn’t it ? 

What the best to be a Buddhist is, we don’t need to panic what ever happened, since it is in the

hand of Dharma.  We just go with it.   This is the confidence to be with Dharma.

IMG_1159 A while ago, I was invited to attend a gathering of

the Tibetan Buddhists.

As a Tibetan Buddhism, it belongs to the Vajrayana Buddhism.

So that, the gathering went through an elaborated ritual rite

of which the participants taking part with chanting the mantra

and practice hand gestures.


Elaborated rituals impress the people.

The people who attend such ritual, seeing gorgeous costumes

or strange regalia, never rise question but just follow.

People instantly accept it as it is, since it supposed to have ultimate authority with mysticism.

Anyhow it is beyond the comprehension of the ordinary mind, almost like looking inside of a computer.

The more elaborated, looks expensive, looks remote from ordinary knowledge, it precludes the question.

And deep impression becomes an imprint in the subconscious. (Then start to influence the person)


A clever part of this sect’s practice is, as they ask the followers to visualise their Guru, the visual memory

of the rituals together with the feelings of the atmosphere comes back whenever the person meditates again.

This technique might be much easier to practice for the beginners.

Instead to vacate the mind, totally fills it with the image of Guru is, in effect, it is the state of non-self———

—–somebody-else is definitely not oneself though, this is not Buddhism but Vedic practice.

When the mind was filled by an image or notion, it is impossible to see the things in clear eyes.

This is the very reason why Buddha taught to see with empty mind / selflessness.


From this gathering, I brought back a flower which was used for a gesture of offering, thrown on to the

air and most of them end up on the floor.

After 10 days, this flower is still blooming in my kitchen. And this must be the best gift I received at the day,

since I don’t need to question this flower of Natural Mandhara, created by the Dharma, or this is

the Dharma itself.

Why do we need to see a man-made print of  Mandhara.


PS: Funny phenomenon is, this blog received loads of virus spams.

(though they are all filtered out by the security program)

It’s not a Buddhist like behavior. So that, in deed this is a proof of

its not done by the Buddhists.

If the eyes has been deluded by a false vision, one can not see

even oneself, nor can not see what oneself is doing.(What a hell)

——-I rather like to see the daughters of Mara dancing naked,

than the spams. Ha Ha Ha     😀
