: <: Stage II: Absolute tranquility, the brow point moves by itself--doing without action

: Stage III: Amalgamation, the brow point bathes and everything is realized.

: By Stage II, you begin to have transcendental powers. By Stage III, when all karmic hindrances are eradicated, you begin to have the ability to destroy all evil passions. Now you are a fully qualified Buddha, never to return to the six lower states of existence.>>

: I would like to ask the site master for his/her opinion of the above posting? Is there a spiritual teacher to give guidance in this site?

Even though I am not a spiritual leader, I would like to give you a reply which I hope will help you a bit further on makng up your mind without the need of a spiritual leader (at this stage anyway haha). What this person is talking about comes very close to what I have learnt as being "Ling Training". Ling Meditation is one of the many many ways of meditations possible. In certain styles of Qi Gong (an ancient chinese/taoistic/buddhistic inspired form of energy work). The above-described stages are also mentioned as being side-effects of this ong Meditation. If I may believe my teacher and my fellow students, these side effects manifested as paranormal gifts or siddhis or whatever their names, are indeed occuring after extensive training. If you would like to know more about this or other meditation forms, you can try to search for Qi Gong (or Qi Gung or Chi Kung, all different spellings for the same thing) especially the "Zhong Wujigong" style. (Youwill not find anything on this subject with the more widely spread "medical qi gong" style.
NOthing to be afraid of, I think.
