Question

Thanks for having taken the time to answer my previous question. I talked about vibrations, and you answered by a link about hyper-reality and people who are absolutely convinced that it is true, whereas it is only an image projected on a screen. Illusion of the senses, then. . . Vibrations would thus be an illusion, not to be taken into account. . .

 

Your Master had told you not to practice other disciplines before having explored thoroughly zen. Conversely, my inside Master tells me not to explore zen before having trodden my path, then, if I feel like it, I will try zen, Tibetan Buddhism, and even, why not, druidism. I will certainly have much fun practising all that. Or maybe I won't feel like it, who knows?

Well, I'm going to look for information about these vibrations, which are not illusory, I can tell you, and I strongly doubt that the brain is the only one involved in it. I will keep you informed.

See you in a few years, then. . .

Answer from Master Kosen

The vibratory phenomenon that you describe seems to be linked to uncontrolled kundalini movements. When you are young, when sexual energy is high and when when you practice meditation regularly, this kind of vibrations can occur. Breathe calmly, concentrate on the top of the head, and let energy go slowly upwards through the spine till it floods the brain.
