Title: Tibetan Monks Superpowers
Post by: Loki on May 30, 2009, 10:40:44 AM
You know from old Chinese kung-fu movies and more serious books that the Tibetan (Bon-Po) Monk can achieve superpowers like moving huge objects, staying naked in -30C caves in the mountains, traveling at very high speed ....

I have followed such a yellow-hat monk for a couple of years but could not find any of these superpowers except the one for seducing and sleeping with western female devotees at a high pace.

However, I am still asking - how come Tibet has not been able to resist the Chinese invasion and prevent those nasty communists to kill or deport its people and precious monks? . Maybe those monks are too GOOD to use theirs superpowers against their oppressors - Or is it the Jesus' way of martyrdom ?

  From my understanding, anyone who can achive oneness can achive near superhuman powers.  Achiving oneness however will never be able to overcome a couple hundered thousand men weilding machine rifles.  In a one on one fight, the outcome has already been decided, it is the same way when you compare a few hundered holymen to an invading/hostile force.

I knew a monk who did have some of these super powers
( i have provided video links to some of them in the psi section here at Monstrous.)

Now i dont claim to ave these powers so understand i can only give a speculative answer based on being around them.

Using these powers against invaders is likely to make matters worse. If Tibetans suddenly used new weapons against China to resist,  Tibetans would face MUCH MUCH worse treatment from the Chinese.  The Dalai Lama has appealed many times for Tibetans to not resist and give in to aggression and violence. He recently even threatened to step down as spitirual head should this be the case.

As i understand it, the best strategy is to take the heat out of the conflict by not adding fuel of aggression to the situation. Adding violent resistance would make the situation worse and massively increase the suffering of Tibetan people.

So in this instance using super powers of a few individuals against china is the worst thing they could do.
The best super power they can use is the much under rated soft stuff like compassion and kindness.

Actually its a great testing ground for Buddhism. True buddhism will flourish under such harsh conditions. It will likely weed out that that pays lip service to the central concepts. True buddhists will have the opportunity to test their practice in previously unimaginable ways.

In fact true Buddhists will start to realise and feel genuine gratitude towards the chinese. This is the challenge and the test that they face. Its a matter for individual karma and practice. A time of great learning and realisation, or a time of collection for karmic stains.

Tibetan Buddhism is different from other Buddhism and I doubt compassion or karma redeem will change the fate of a country that is being colonized and raped. In Birmania, monks did revolt against the junte and in India, only violence managed to chase the English out of the country (not Gandi).

I do like what the Dalai Lama profess but I am not convinced about the magic and beliefs of Tibetan buddhism, nor do I with their superpowers which are just born out of superstition.

I can only go on what i have witnessed myself and i have to disagree about it being mere superstition. I am very sceptical of many claims of anything supranormal , even when having witnessed it firsthand. It was a complete shock for my rational mind to witness anything i thought was impossible. However i did, many times.

I enclose again a video link for the gentleman responsible for these demonstrations. (
