Tara Mandala Retreat 2009, Day 7


After refuge ceremony:

Mudras: some are for energy flow, some are just customary.

Dreams are good fodder for demon feeding.

We can map inherited demons from our parents.  Allies, too.  Also, our demons & allies flow down to children & subordinates.

Prajna Paramita practice: practice outside when you can.  Face away from the sun.  “There’s something about sitting on mother earth.”  Practicing at night is okay.
