    He went into the Himalaya mountains in Tibet/Nepal and became a buddha, so he's cool by me.

    The sarin gas thing wasn't the coolest thing about the Aum cult. They used the idea of phowa/poa to kill people - which is the opposite of Buddha dharma, but Aum was more akin to Tibetan Buddhism so it was ok by them.

    It's impenetrable to me how anyone could find a terrorist attack compatible with the Buddha-Dharma.

    It's the doctrine from Tibetan Buddhism and esoteric teachings in the dharma. The doctrine of phowa is that it is a merciful act to kill a sinful person to stop them from sinning further and falling into hell. This is what justified the Aum attacks on the subway, because they thought the Japanese people were sinful and corrupted by Freemasons and Jews' techniques. The gas attacks was a mass phowa used to liberate the victims to a higher state of rebirth.

    This is a secret teaching, only for the enlightened ones and those who can absorb the bad karma and sin of the victims. Mikkyou is the Japanese equivalent of this secret body of teaching. 密教 (mikkyou) means secret teaching literally.

    Really weird. I don't know much about Vajrayana. But this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phowa - doesn't mention the things you mention, nor does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikkyō . It's probably it was his own interpretation /delusion, not actually anything found in Tibetan teachings

    It's a practice of death yoga. The point is to aim the being's skandas into a higher rebirth by recognizing it's own innate Buddha nature. The act of killing thus would not create the bad karma of killing, but would be seen as a merit gaining act. That was the teaching of Aum Shinrikyou, which is backed by the Tibetan Vajrayana texts.

    As I understand this, the Vajrayana texts don't mention killing, only dying.

    It was a meeting of Catholic cardinals and bishops that lasted several years and changed Catholic ritual as we know it today. The Novus Ordo Missae or New Order Mass was made the regular form of the mass to be said in all Catholic churches. The mass changes words and the orientation of the altar, which allows the priest to have his back to the holy tabernacle, permits the recipient of the sacrament to be handed the host, and other distortions of the ritual and rites. Many believe the Catholic Church was infiltrated by members of the Freemasonic Order and that the new rites instituted by Vatican II was in fact instituted by the Masonic infliltrators. This is the reason, or one reason for why there is a Old Catholic Church headquartered in Germany. The Old Catholic Church rejects doctrines like the papal infallibility and other Catholic dogmas they deem to be against the original Catholic religion. They also use the Latin language in the regular mass rite, which is a beautiful liturgical tradition and spiritually powerful against the forces of Satan.

    I realize that is a bit tldr, but I thought you should know what Vatican II is/was.

    Must be fun having some old pedophile tell you all of the myriad reasons why you'd go to hell in a language that pretty much nobody understands anymore.

    The only cult that ever slightly interested me was christianity when I was very young, then I turned 10 years old, and realized how fucking stupid the idea of a god was.
