I agree with Stephen Pema Dorje. It's always intrigued me why any religion has to have "miraculous" events or supernatural powers
occuring to attract followers. To myself it borders on "showmanship" and devalues its base,
reducing it's whole foundation to fantasy and myth.
What possible advantage or benefit would walking on water, flying through the air or levitating during meditation be anyway? Other than to impress others like some magic show.

Peace,
Cat
