    Baramei? Isn’t it the same thing as power and authority of the higher level spiritual beings? A power that can rescue, heal or hurt according to the will and act of the spirits. A power that can even manipulate the events in human history, etc. And that is Baramei, is it not?

    Baramei is the same as aura. It’s a glow emanating from a person. I find that people who are really spiritually advanced have auras. It’s quite amazing really. During a meditation retreat in Japan, I notice that the head guru there had this gorgeous glow emanating from him. He was obviously very spritually advanced.

    It’s interesting to note also that when holy people are depicted, they are usually painted or drawn with a glow or light emanating from him or her. Perhaps the higher your spirituality, the brighter your aura.

    If you want to achieve a brighter aura, you should meditate. Meditation helps the mind develop perfect calmness and mindfulness. It helps open up our chakras, releasing positive energy, and in turn give us brighter auras.

    I concur and I thank you. Although I have not seen this “glow” personally, I do believe that it could happen. In addition to this belief, I also believe that baramei does not have to glow. For example, a person meditates. That person disappears for some amount of time, then reappears. That is also baramei, I believe even at a higher level. That I have seen, albeit through what I believe as an unadulterated video footage.

    I also believe that an ordinary person could achieve this baramei through deligent practices of everyday habits. For example there are many kinds of baramei one could perfect. Baramei of abstinence from anger, falsehoods, alms-giving, etc… These are the barameis, that when enough, will give a person aura or baramei or power, which no one can defy. For example, if one practice the baramei of truth, no matter what, truth will make itself known. That is, a person may get ridiculed and criticized harshely etc… for being mistaken and accused of falsehood. When truth is revealed of their own accord, that person who did the accusation turned around and beg for apology of that person whom they accused, the victim. In the future, the accuser has to be more careful of accusing the same person again. This is baramei in a sense, because no one can fault you for something you did not do…Because they are more careful in the future, you seem to have power—power of truth.

    Baramei or power has many interpretations based on certain context. English translations seem to loop it together, and much of the meaning gets lost.

    What you refer to as baramei, I believe, does also exist. Since I am not quite sure the exact origin, I believe that such a person who possesses this type of power use it for evil by entering a person’s body and controlling that person. Others, for example, are like ghost readers, where a spirit enters that medium and that medium suddenly become the entity of that spirit…Such baramei do exist, but this is not related to religion, especially in Buddhism. Some could call this as the occult, but again, it differs in meaning, maybe subtly. Baramei in Buddhism refers to the self practice or meditation to cultivate positive side of the person so that when a person achieves it, that person will obtain baramei in some form or other. When this person achieves this great level of practice, the baramei could be seen, which some people could mistaken that as a form of witch craft or sorcery. Again, sorcery is too big a word, and much of the meaning gets lost when referring to the fruit of a person’s dedication of meditation, which could be displayed for others to behold, when that person choose to.

    The Buddha could achieve this, an ordinary person could achieve this….
