Tulpa


Recommended Posts

I was reading about Tulpas which wikipedia describes as
 

 

Tulpa (Tibetan: སྤྲུལ་པWylie: sprul-pa; Sanskrit: निर्मित nirmita[1] and निर्माण nirmāṇa;[2] "to build" or "to construct") is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer discipline alone. It is a materialized thought that has taken physical form and is usually regarded as synonymous to a thoughtform.[3]

 

 

 

I noticed that there is an online community of people who practice this, but then believe that the Tulpa is separate from their own thoughts and psychology. Like, they literally created a being from their thoughts. And this isn't even the oddest thing I've seen on the internet (fiction-kin come to mind). I just wonder what kind of psychology goes on behind these thought processes. The more I think about it the more wieirded out I got.... are these beliefs really that different from Xianity? I "heard" the holy spirit talk to me, it seemed to have a personality, but it was really my own manifestations of thought... I created my own Tupla too ahahaha.. I guess a better description for these would be "vivid imaginary friend".

Strange there isn't any record of anyone who actually "thought" something into existence. Oh, I forgot. Magical claims don't need to be real to be real.

hmmm.... I see it (it=the power of visualization) as the ability to imagine something.. visualize it and then open yourself to it coming into your life.(you know - seeing opportunity, inventing something, working to make something happen... physical reality stuff) But it seems the prevailing idea here is more like a Star Trek replicator idea   hahahahahahahahaha.... no.

 

Or Harry Potter's wand?.. one of the two.

 

hahahahahaha.... no.

Your tulpa is only real to your mind; this isn't anything magical. From what I read on this, you are creating a hallucination. If you work hard enough you can make anything real to yourself.

In a way it is real, in your own mind.  The people who visualize these things know they are using their imagination.
