“See the Future”: futures and options

Can Geshe Michael Roach see the future?

Geshe Michael said this week:

If you meditate, you come out of the closet into a much bigger space, you can see the future. Directly. You can see what the stock market will do. You will know exactly what steps to take in your life. Is meditation boring? No! It’s a very powerful life tool for success.” 1/2016

If that’s true, perhaps he would have known “exactly what steps to take” to prevent the near collapse of his company, the failure of his secret marriage, and the tragedy at Diamond Mountain. And perhaps, he could have traded stocks, futures and options rather than spending “twelve hours a day at this stupid place [Andin International].”

Geshe Michael claims to be an Arya Bodhisattva and so should have seen that:
– his years of planting karmic seeds would fail to get him his breakfast of choice.
– his letter to his lamas would not win their approvals, not without providing any proof.
– his audition for a TV show and his pitch for a TED talk would be a waste of time.

At the very least, he would not have made statements about the future that turned out to be so wrong.

Editor’s note: We challenge the Diamond Cutter Institute to not delete the above quote from their Facebook page. Geshe Michael’s organizations frequently remove videos and other content that have been questioned on this blog.

Here’s a brief meditation guide by Andy Puddicombe, a former Tibetan monk who created the Headspace app and became a millionaire:
