    Hi. Looking forward to the podcast. I would like to know what you think about Buddhism, Vajrayana, to be more specific. Can we say Vajrayana has objectives and methods in common with Vama Marga? I’m not looking for the “best one”, you know, just to be clear.

        It’s OK if I ask in the written method? My spoken english is rudimentary. Thank you.

    Thank you for all the answers. I know that are hard and controversial questions, in some way.

    I don’t want to put you in a difficult position, but I can’t answer these questions alone. To me, Buddhism, from what I’ve been studying, seems like a form of anti-cosmic esotericism, you know? “The world is suffering, liberate all beings, escape the Samsara, us don’t even exist, we are just a result of circumstances.” It is as if someone is tired of the cosmic game and wants to get out of it. It would even be a kind of contempt, without saying hatred for the Cosmic Mind and the way things were designed.

    I feel like it’s using the Tantra method to go against “the system”. This system without God and without meaning, where we can say that everything is just mind. To paraphrase some texts.

    You talked about Bön. Did you mean Yungdrung Bön or the most primitive one?

    Knowing your spiritual formation, your opinion would help me a lot on my way. If you don’t want to answer here, contact me by email, please.

    I hope my writing doesn’t sound too confusing.

    Thank you again, Mr.
