This video is a segment-one of many that can be found on the internet showing Buddhist monk students engaging in daily debating practice. This was discussed in the last discussion session.
This is not being presented to say neterian clergy students should necessarily adopt any of these practices.
It is presented for understanding the levels of intensity that other practitioners who purport to be serious practitioners engage in so as to have an idea of what any serious advancing clerical spiritual practice can engage to develop keen intellect, well-inculcated teaching, cooperative feeling, and humility—virtues and developments necessary for advancing spiritual evolution. Neither is this to be taken as a sign that the Buddhists or Hindus are “better” “superior” in philosophical standing since as you should know that Shetaut Neter stands on par with ANY mystical and or philosophical teaching that humans have developed. It is not being presented for you to do anything you feel is unwarranted but rather for fulfilling the preceptorial role to impart knowledge for the understanding of what the teaching is and what is required, in terms of erudition, time, effort, practice, etc. in order to attain it and how to go about doing what is required. What you do with the information and teaching is within your purview.
This is being presented on the order of a comparative religious study of spiritual traditions most similar to the Neterian. Togther with such scriptures as PMH (especially chapters such as 78, 64, Hymns, etc, Amenemopet, (and others) and the direct examinations of the temple panels, architecture and monumental functions, give us details about the practices of our spiritual ancestors for us to follow.
This is presented for reflection purposes for consideration of possibilities and of where you as individuals would like to see the class going once the formal Amenemopet trainings on behavior and handling feelings and emotions have concluded. This and any other vids or articles on this subject will be taken up for further discussion at the beginning of 2020 in its own discussion forum.
