Kalachakra Sand Mandala vs. 9/11

TK: The real Buddhist practices do not belong to any “Form”. The Mandala of Tibetan Buddhism is one of the Form which brings no one to the Nirvana. It is because the practice of orthodox Buddhism teaches all followers: Don’t follow any of your desires. Get away from them! Then it’s possible to be on the right way to the Enlightenment. But the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism/Lamaism are all in oppositve side. The Kalachakra Mandala represents the desire of superpower over the universal. The lamas never understand, the “power” of Buddha comes from the Alaya Vijnana, not from wordly desire!

A Washington Post article states, “Many still see huge significance in his [the Dalai Lama's] picking the capital of the world’s superpower as the place for a ritual about how to reconcile disunity. Some believe the Kalachakra’s hopeful explanation about how to deal with differences literally will spread through meditators to area bigwigs coping with national debt, wars, environmental disasters and terrorism.” The article cites Clark Strand, former editor of Tricycle, a Buddhist magazine: “The most significant thing about this is the time and place, 10 years after 9/11, and in a place where big decisions are being made about the planet.”

Yes,10 years after 9/11! But what did happen exactly ten years before 9/11? In 1991 in New York City a so-called Kalachakra Sand Mandala was constructed, then destroyed by the Dalai Lama, and the sand was poured into the water near the World Trade Center. Two years later in 1993 another Wheel of Time (Kalachakra) Sand Mandala was built by Tibetan Monks in the lobby of Tower One. For over thirty days, many of the World Trade Center workers and visitors were invited to participate during the construction of this Mandala. Although these coincidences may be accidental, they prove that these two Kalachakra events were not a remedy for “national debt, wars, environmental disasters and terrorism.” If they did have any magical effect at all, it was to produce exactly the opposite.
