The path to wisdom


As I walk on my path to understanding spirituality and meaning of Buddhism I stumble upon more and more proof that modern tulpamancy is completely orthogonal; although trying to use similar practices. Like two edges on the blade; buddhism mind clearing techniques like meditation are used to cloud your mind and push you further away from reality.

Today I consider the imposition practice; basically the hallucinatory perception of your tulpa; be it vision; touch or smell. Imposition is praised as one of the most ultimate and complex skills in tulpamancy; giving you great benefit of actually feeling your tulpa. But ultimately it’s something that comes from within the mind; not the physical world. Tulpa doesn’t exist in the physical world and tulpamancers “lie” to themselves to make their lives more comfortable. To live in the dreams that they find more pleasing then the real life itself.

Still; it’s a useful practice if applied properly. Tulpamancy’s imposition can ultimately achieve the same goal as lucid dreaming. As you are lucid and mindful in your dreams you realise that the real life isn’t much different. The hallucinations allow you to see that even more clearly. See that; and discard it; becoming more attuned to reality and more wise. As wisdom is seeing the true nature of things; and tulpae don’t belong there.

I must note that it only applies to multiple consciousness in the tulpamancy context; the case where tulpamancers voluntarily or involuntarily get new headmates that didn’t exist in the mind before.

  • [Yang] The problem with tulpas is attachment. Tulpas are thoughts that are associated with a certain blend of feelings and images; the mind becomes attached to these feelings and images and the feeling of the presence of this being. This leads the mind to grasp at the thoughts which are perceived as ‘tulpa.’

    However, the problem of attachment also applies to all other relationships as well. There are two types of love, ‘maya’ and ‘daya.’ Maya is love for family and friends, people who are ‘special’ to you. Daya is a universal compassion that applies to all beings. Maya is attachment and bondage, Daya is non-attachment and freedom.

    An enlightened person loves her father and mother because they are people, and because all people deserve love–not because they are her parents. She respects her duty to her family, but is not attached to them personally.

    This degree of non-attachment is extremely difficult, and risks offending people who do not understand it as a virtue.

    • It’s absolutely true and the more I study vipassana personally the more I see how tulpamancy is a step back from enlightenment. Tulpas create craving and overall they complicate the life. But sometimes to go forward you need to take that step back.
