    Falun Gong in Wellington and Tum-mo Everywhere Paid Member

    Falun Gong defies the government... the city council of Wellington, New Zealand, that is. Tum-mo and your mind/body: In a monastery in northern India, Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room, deep in meditation. Although the room was a chilly 39˚ F, the men - using a yoga technique known as Tum-mo - were scarcely clothed, but seemed unaffected by the cold. Nearby, other monks soaked large sheets in freezing cold water and placed them on the shoulders of the meditators. Within an hour, the sheets were dry. Scientists who have studied the monks - some of whom were capable of raising the temperature of their fingers and toes by 17˚ F - have yet to determine how the meditative process was able to generate so much heat.

    Aung San Suu Kyi gets medal from Congress... when? American politics. Wii meditate. Paid Member

    Get on the horn or mouse and let your Congressperson know you want Aung San Suu Kyi to receive the Congressonal Gold Medal tout de suite. A lot of other countries have recognized her... but that doesn't usually convince Americans. Congress voted on December 17th to recognize her, but so far has made no plans for the ceremony. Speaking of American politics, many candidates have dropped out of the Presidential race after a few contests in states with few voters. So why aren't all the primaries held on one day? Could it be that this would leave the media with less to pontificate and prognosticate over? They're having a field day with Obama and Clinton taking swings at each other. . . More »
