Att: DU Buddhists - Tibetan Prophecy Shared With Hopi people

1,200 Year Old Tibetan Prophecy Shared With Hopi People
War Chief Requests Prayers For Preservation of Hopi Traditional Ways
By Kathy Helms
Dine Bureau
Gallup Independent

CHINO VALLEY, Ariz. About 1,200 years ago a great Tibetan master called Guru Rinpoche made a prophecy. He wrote an inscription and hid it in the rocks. It was found just recently. The prophecy said, Later, when the iron bird flies, then the red-robed ones will go to the red rocks and meet with the tradition there and unite again.

Surrounded by prayer flags which send out blessings for all beings every time the wind blows, this prophecy was shared with Hopi Snake Priest and War Chief Radford Quamahongnewa at Garchen Buddhist Institute following a meeting with His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, founder and spiritual director.

Some say Hopi and Tibet are connected, and that if you stick a pin through a globe where Hopi is located, on the other side you will find Tibet.

3. Reflections of our nature! Nice one.
Therefore, we say it is not so much important what we experience externally, but what we cultivate internally that will determine the external in the future, in the long run. Therefore, all that we hold on to is a mind of love and compassion.

The revolution of the mind is possible and it can take place for those who are spiritual or those who prefer not to use that terminology or context. There is a bridge and to see it is wisdom.

Reasonably, there are processes and there is content within them. There are strategies and many of us labor under what has been inculcated into our values and beliefs from cultures, religion, philosophy, and various other sources. We can easily tend to take for granted that our limited, conscious awareness is the entire field, when it is a specific aspect of the mind. In that case, the habitual nature of the less conscious, (unconscious) aspects of our thoughts and behaviors continue to function and react. When we drive a car, ride a bike, or even use language, it is obvious that most of the strategy and skill we have functions automatically. If it did not, we would consciously be burdened with having to labor through each aspect of a task with focus.

I'm glad to see that the indigenous cultures and traditions are connecting and there seems to be more of that going on as the Elders hook-up and create a new web of understanding. There are jewels of balance and wisdom surfacing as we consider the true nature of our nervous systems and how we function. That's where the revolution and evolution is for me as we face a very challenging scenario of such great proportions for our entire species.

4. If I remember correctly the connection is one of similarity of language.
There are related words and names in both languages.

5. I'm certain there are connections between words and language
here because every Indian tribe that came to Turtle Island came from Asia, Africa or even Europe and oftentimes by sea. Also Hopiland is in AZ right in the midde of the Navajo Rez.

6. Yes, they are more isolated than other tribes so have less outside
influence.

9. The Hopi tribe is in Az and smack dab in the middle of the Navajo reservation. Many problems there.

10. Well yes, the government did that to a lot of tribes. "Here we will give
you this land right beside you traditional enemy."

11. There is no connection. The connection is with a Siberian language called Ket.

13. Only if the pin is badly bent, or greatly off-centered.
if you stick a pin through a globe where Hopi is located, on the other side you will find Tibet.

Both Tibet and The Hopis are in the Northern Hemisphere. Any pin passing through a globe's center will emerge from the opposite hemispere that it entered. Poke it in the North and it will come out in the South. Basic elementary school geometry.

The Hopi pin would emerge in the South Indian Ocean, thousands of miles west of Australia.

The Tibetian pin would emerge in the South Pacific Ocean, thousands of miles west of Chile.
