Take Buddhism, strip out the pre-Buddhist deities.

One now has a religion that claims to have no god, but rather talks about everything being illusion and instead there is a single unifying Buddha nature.

Open the Tanya, and compare to the Alter Rebbe's take on yeish meiAyin (capital "a" intentional). -- I originally threw a lehavdil in there, but how do I say "compare" and "lehavdil" in the same sentence?

For that matter, is a memutzah hamechubar all that different than a buddha?

I'm not saying that L since "Atzmus" actually is Buddhism. However, it's hard to see how one can be Torah and the other altogether avodah zarah.

I heard his concert in London in November. At the interval the friend I went with (who is also interested in the matters discussed on this blog) and I were commenting on how it felt like tefila. We met many other like-minded friends (it felt like a kiddush!) who all said the same thing. In the second half he moved the spirituality even further to the forefront - it was clear he sees himslef as a spiritual leader who was dispensing advice and blessings to his faithful. The fact that he was wearing a smart suit and grey Homburg added to the effect, from a Jewish POV!

Some spiritually focussed people believe that all religions are vessels which can be used to access and remain on a certain level/ mindset. Once this level has been achieved there is little need for the vessel. This is obviously not a Jewish view but it looked like he had used Judaism/ Buddhism and whatever else to get to where he had achieved. Or perhaps he is a great showman and it was a great act!

I like his point of views, and maybe I can get some of it and applied to my own self.

Jew can also at the same time be a Buddhist, is a grievious misunderstanding of both religions and... a self-delusion.

Eye Exercises

Sight exercises are kind of suspect and may likely even present you false hope for eye illnesses along the lines of glaucoma in addition to cataracts. 2x vision, suffice to say, is likely developed with eyes exercise. A componant much like convergence insufficiency or a palsy of one's 3 rd or 1/4th cranial nerves, or diplopia will likely all bring about double vision. Ocular exercises often helps in such cases.
