タイ人のタンブン思想 -- 現世利益を願う信仰

[僧侶は]五戒律を信仰すれば誰もがお金が得られると言いますが、現実には金ははいってこない。だから、お寺に行って五戒律を教えてもらうよりは、宝くじの当選番号を僧侶に教えてもらうほうがまだよい。―― あるタイ人在家信者の嘆き(p71)

2015年5月最後の金曜、バンコクの大学で催された研究会のセミナーへ参加しタイの近代史について学んできました。とても興味深いテーマでしたので、その後アソークの交流基金の図書館やネットで関連資料を読み、さらに勉強を深めさせていただきました。

特にタイ人の信じる仏教は完全に現世利益を目的としており、原始仏教から、かなり乖離・変容してしまっていることが改めて確認できました。また今回のセミナーのテーマでもありますが、1902年タイ北部で起きた「有徳者の反乱」において、民衆蜂起の思想的原動力となったミロク思想にしても、本来は肉体の死後、現世を離れ弥勒菩薩の住む兜率天へ生まれ変わることが最終目標であるのに、タイ人のあいだでは「救世主ミロクが現世に降臨し現在の経済的困窮を改善してくれる」ことを願う現世利益願望にすり替わっているところが象徴的です。

もっとも、たしかに弥勒菩薩は約56億年後にはこの世に下生してくれることになっています。また他国におけるミロク信仰でも56億年も待てないから、現代の世に下生してくれるよう願う信仰もあるにはあります。しかし、いずれにしても弥勒菩薩が下生するのは、釈尊のように如来となって説法し衆生を「涅槃に導く」ため、つまり我々衆生が「真にこの世を厭い嫌い、もう二度と再びこの世に生まれてこなくてすむように指導する」ためです。タイ人が望むような「現世で金持ちになって楽できるよう幸運を授けてくれるため」ではありません。

また石井米雄先生のご著書を読んでいて気付いたのですが、タイ人のタンブン思想が中世ヨーロッパ教会の「免罪符」と酷似していることも発見できました。本来カルマは決して消えることはないとお釈迦様は教えられています(スッタニパータ666)。だからどれだけ善い事をしても、もし悪いこともすれば、その悪い結果もきっちり受ける、というのがお釈迦様(仏)の教え、すなわち佛教ですが、タイ人は寺や僧侶に布施をすれば悪業、たとえば噓をついたり、盗みをしたカルマなどが「帳消し」になると信じていて、僧侶側も敢えてそのような釈尊の教えとは違った考えを訂正しようとしていません。

これがキリスト教会の権益と絡んだ「免罪符」の発想と、とてもよく似ていて面白いと思いました。もっとも中世キリスト教会発行の「免罪符」にしても、あくまでも肉体の死後の「天国行き」を保障するもので、現世でリッチになれることを約束したのものではありませんから、ここでもタイ人が信仰する宗教は、現世で得られる利益への願望の強さが際立っているといえそうです。

MIKE PATRICK'S LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR OF COLORADO

April 23, 2015



Governor John W. Hickenlooper
Office of the Governor
136 State Capitol Building
Denver, CO 80203


Subject: State, National and International Emergency - Organized Stalking and Satellite Surveillance and Torture



Dear Governor Hickenlooper,

I wanted to make you aware of an emergency situation. Satellite technology is silently connected to millions of people, including children, throughout the world. It provides constant location, sight, sound and thought surveillance. The operators can literally hear what we hear, see what we see and read our thoughts. This technology is also being used as a remote, invisible torture instrument by transmitting inexplicable sounds, voices, images, smells and tastes directly into the brain, creating numerous pains and sensations throughout the body and significantly altering sleep patterns, energy level and emotional states. Many believe the technology has a “kill switch”, capable of causing instantaneous heart failure or a stroke. Everyone is potentially at risk. Imagine Hitler or Stalin with this technology.

Aaron Alexis, the Washington Navy Yard shooter, Miriam Carey, shot fleeing a White House checkpoint in October 2013, Dominic Adesanya, one of the recent White House fence jumpers, and Myron May, the shooter at Florida State University last November, were all targeted and tortured prior to those events. Eddie Ray Routh may have been targeted, tortured and provoked to kill Chris Kyle, the highly decorated Navy SEAL portrayed in American Sniper, and his friend Chad Littlefield. Many other seemingly inexplicable tragedies, including mass shootings going back decades, and an untold number of suicides have been caused by people being tortured past their breaking points. Once exposed, this will be the largest crime in U.S. history.

There are millions of satellite torture victims all over the world. Most do not even know this technology exists. Many are pushed into the mental health system. Over the past decade or so, information has sprung up everywhere – books, articles, websites, blogs, petitions, victim testimonials, support groups, etc. Published by torture victims trying to make sense of something almost impossible to comprehend, the information is understandably all over the board. Search “targeted individuals”, “organized stalking”, “gang stalking”, “electronic harassment” and “technological assault”. One prominent support group, Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance (www.freedomfchs.com), was formed 10 years ago and has members and affiliated support groups across the country and throughout the world.

Since the satellite technology is classified and no information has been released to the public, there are many different theories regarding technological assault. However, any viable theory has to be able to explain how people are targeted on airplanes at 35,000 feet over the middle of the ocean. Satellite is the only technology that can do that.

Many victims of satellite surveillance and torture also experience “organized stalking”. This is stalking, monitoring, harassment and intimidation conducted by a large, organized, well-funded group. Organized stalking is a form of psychological torture which uses tactics similar to those used by corrupt regimes throughout history to manipulate and control their populations. The Germans had a name for the psychological terror inflicted by the Stasi in former communist East Germany – zersetzung or decomposition. American citizens in communities across the United States are being victimized by organized stalking. The size and scope of the organized stalking apparatus suggest government involvement and funding.

I have been a Colorado resident since 1999 and a victim of organized stalking and satellite surveillance and torture for roughly the past decade. I attached a copy of a paper I wrote in May 2014, “End the Torment”. It describes some of my personal experiences. I have reported these crimes to the Denver Police Department, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. I have also contacted the FBI on numerous occasions. To my knowledge, no investigation has been commenced. The brutal torture continues every second of every day.

Victims across the country have filed reports with local and federal law enforcement. The crimes are not being investigated. It is being dismissed as mental illness. Torture victims are not only being ignored, they are often subjected to defamatory labels. It is NOT mental illness, yet the mental health profession continues to provide cover for these crimes by handing out false diagnoses and prescribing potentially dangerous, mind-altering drugs. The DSM and mental health practices will be completely revamped when this situation is finally exposed. The mental health profession has massive legal exposure, both civil and criminal, to this issue.

This is a state, national and international emergency. A long list of horrific crimes are being committed: unimaginable privacy violations, stalking, assault, torture, murder, domestic terrorism and crimes against humanity. American citizens are under attack, and innocent lives are being destroyed. This situation must be immediately investigated, and organized stalking and satellite technology capable of ending humanity must be exposed and permanently locked down.

Best regards,



Michael S. Patrick
