Vajrayana practice.

The second stage of Vajrayana, is using the bodies subtle energy system to help connect with bliss and access ever deeper states of consciousness. By working with energy channels in the body and Chakras, the meditator experiences The symbolism of union and sexual polarity is a central teaching in Tantric Buddhism, especially in Tibet.

This untapped blissful energy is within all beings, and Vajrayana brings it to the surface where it is literally working with the blissful rays of the underlying source of reality.

Bringing Eastern Practices and Teachings to the Western World

I have practised all four of these spiritual paths, and can testify that they are extremely beneficial and meaningful. I teach these forms of meditation, and encourage people to engage with them to the best of their ability. Each one contains its own wisdom and has its own positive effects on my life. After many years of practising these spiritual paths, I stumbled upon the secret teachings of Tibetan Dzogchen in books hidden at the back of the library in the Tibetan Buddhist centre where I lived. Dzogchen, which is sometimes referred to as the highest path of Tibetan Buddhism, contains all the above gradual paths, but it also contains a radical meditation on the non dual, or instantaneous path to enlightenment.

Number of Buddhists in the world.

Buddhism is a religion practiced by an estimated 488 million in the world,[1] 495 million,[2] or 535 million[3] people as of the 2010s, representing 9% to 10% of the world's total population.

China is the country with the largest population of Buddhists, approximately 244 million or 18.2% of its total population.[1] They are mostly followers of Chinese schools of Mahayana, making this the largest body of Buddhist traditions. Mahayana, also practiced in broader East Asia, is followed by over half of world Buddhists.[1]

The second largest body of Buddhist schools is Theravada, mostly followed in Southeast Asia.[1] The third and smallest body of schools, Vajrayana, is followed mostly in Tibet, the Himalayan region, Mongolia and parts of Russia,[1] but has been disseminated throughout the world.

According to a demographic analysis reported by Peter Harvey (2013):[3]

Eastern Buddhism (Mahayana) has 360 million adherents;
Southern Buddhism (Theravada) has 150 million adherents; and
Northern Buddhism (Vajrayana) has 18.2 million adherents.
Seven million additional Buddhists are found outside Asia.

And the numbers of Buddhists in the country in 2,013:
United States ----------3,800,023
Malaysia -----------------5,620,483
Japan ----------------------9,250,000
China -----------------------244,130,000

Quotes from Buddha.

This is BUDDHA QUOTES taken from THE source of other person.

So here are some of the favourites xxx
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
A jug fills drop by drop.

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.

He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
(AWESOME!!!)


In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
