Three Nipples in Tibetan Culture

In Tibetan tradition, an extra nipple can be a good omen!

Three nipples, and other birthmarks, are sometimes indicators of special abilities within the nyingma (ancient) tradition.

Birthmarks and third nipples were a sine qua non (absolutely necessary) condition to prove extraordinary visionary destiny within the tulku (incarnation or rebirth) system.

I'm not making this up, either -- a very kind Tibetan (is there any other type?) named Panchen Kunga (he writes a blog, in French, called Buddhistan at passed this on to me after visiting.

And after hearing how important extra nipples are in Tibetan culture, I figure that's just another reason to loathe the murderous scum that make up the Chinese Communist Party and have been butchering innocent Tibetans for over 50 years now.

Thanks for your comment nubin (as you've been named). If you could repost it without the "colorful" language, that'd be nice.

I find this very interesting! I was born with four nipples and was ashamed for so long!
