Buddhism – “spiritual connection”?

Question by xxxx: Buddhism – “spiritual connection”?
Someone I know has spent the past month-6 weeks in a Buddhist monastery in India. She is now claiming that she has a “spiritual connection” with the Lama there and is thinking of becoming a nun. What does a “spiritual connection” signify in Buddhism?

Best answer:

Answer by Peas Yo ~ Whirled Peas
Ask her to understand her definition of spiritual connection.

I practice a different school of Buddhist thought and to me a spiritual connection would signify something that is universal rather than specific to Buddhism. I have felt spiritually connected to many people from various systems of thought, not just Buddhism. She may be refering to a feeling of mentor/disciple but please don’t count on that ~ again ask her what she refers to with this term because you are trying to understand her, not me. 🙂

Do you think that your spirituality has anything to do with your connection to your zodiac sign?

I know astrology and stuff doesn’t apply to a lot of people, but there are a lot of people that some of it applies to. My family are all quite spiritual, and the ones that are very spiritual have a lot in common with their zodiac sign, whereas the people i know who don’t really think about it, aren’t as close to their sign and the spiritual people are. Do you think there’s a connection between your spirituality and your ability to relate to your zodiac sign?

Is there a connection between astrology and tarot?

I’ve noticed what appears to be some connection in the meaning of certain cards with the planets. I know no one will know who was the first person to use astrology or tarot, but I’m asking if anyone knows if there’s meant to be a connection? While I’m asking, so some astrologers use tarot sort of like a horary chart? That seems kind of like the same thing.
