Return of Fictionary, the monastery’s dictionary for words that don't (yet) exist, but should. We share a few from the Fictionary, and invite the wordologists (not a word) to send in more.

Bodhinatha's latest upadesha on the human aura. The human aura is in the astral plane. The human aura has two parts: the outer and inner auras. Clear congestion through a combination of vasana daha tantra and meditation, bringing more spiritual energy into your aura. What you're thinking of always existed before you thought of it. Become more fluid, more detached and move awareness more freely in the mind.
