“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

Buddhists prefer dialogues to sealing off of Buddha Bar

The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Fri, 03/06/2009 10:49 AM  

Buddhist organizations deemed the sealing off Thursday of the Buddha Bar in Menteng, Central Jakarta, by Buddhist students as an expression of disappointment, and “not a Buddhist act”.

Alim Sudio, secretary-general of the Indonesian Pandita Sabha Buddha Dharma Foundation, said sealing off the bar was not the Buddhist way of seeking a solution. 

“Our way is never to force anything. A dialogue is needed,” he said.

More than 100 people from the Buddhist Student Alliance sealed off the bar on Jl. Teuku Umar by draping a yellow line across the bar’s entrance in protest at the establishment’s use of the name Buddha.

The protesters said it was a holy name and should not be linked with an entertainment venue like a bar.

Alim said an open dialogue between representatives of Buddhist groups, the government and the bar’s owners had to be arranged.

“The Buddha Bar management also has to be given a chance to have a say,” said the Buddhist priest.

“Sealing off the bar was a move by our friends who wanted the Buddha positioned appropriately,” said Gatot Sukarno Adi, deputy secretary-general of Walubi, the Indonesian federation of Buddhist organizations.

He added the important thing was to arrange a dialogue where both parties did not lose anything.

“We have to find a good solution.”

A dialogue at the House of Representatives had been arranged by the Prosperous Peace Party (PDS), but it was not a two-or three-party meeting, he said.

He added the controversy broke out because the government did not notify the Buddhist community before granting permits for the bar.

“The government should have informed us before issuing the permits, to ask whether it was acceptable for us,” Gatot said.

The management of the bar told they had secured approval from three different Buddhist groups.

The bar also came under the spotlight after critics raised concerns about the use of the heritage building where the bar is housed.

The city repurchased the old Dutch Immigration Office for Rp 28 billion and renovated it for Rp 6.1 billion in 2005. It promised to transform the building into a “unique venue” where all Jakarta residents could hold activities.

The administration said the bar had an art gallery that the public was welcome to visit, but critics countered that the bar’s clientele was limited to certain groups.

The franchisor of the Buddha Bar is the Paris-based George V Entertainment, which owns a global chain of hotels, spas, restaurants and boutiques. The group uses various names of the Buddha in its Buddha Bar, Siddharta Café, Little Buddha Cafe, and Buddhattitude Spa. (iwp)
