Re: Schools of Buddhism mind map

The value of a mind map like this for me is to get an at-a-glance broad-stroke overview of the the topic. But, sure, if there are nontrivial errors there, it would be good if they got un-errored. To that end, if you provide me with the mistakes/corrections, I can (try to) get in touch with the creat...

Re: Buddhism and Krishnamurti

Thanks, Wayfarer. I'm a fan of HHtDL so I'm happy for the link.

About the other book ... if there's any way you could find out what it is I would REALLY appreciate it! :thanks:

Just found this six-page DW thread viewtopic.php?t=3012 which I'll work through.

Would still appreciate info/links/titles from members.

Buddhism and Krishnamurti

I'm researching the similarities and differences between Krishnamurti and Buddhism. Google is telling me there's buncha material out there on the subject, but yaknow Google is hit and miss, so I'm hoping someone here could share some good links/texts?

Thanks!

Re: Rebirth and karma

So a physical body produces something (a mindstream/mental continuum) out of nothing? Then when the body dies this thing goes "poof" Came from nowhere, goes nowhere? How does that work? Yes, imo mentation is an artifact of body-brain activity. No activity, no mentation ... perhaps it's li...

Re: Rebirth and karma

you also seem to think that a mindstream is static, and attached to a particular name or body. Static, no, hence "stream." Dependent on a particular body-brain, yes. Additionally, your assumption is that physicality creates consciousness. More like physicality enables a particular conscio...

Re: Rebirth and karma

Yes, I think that it (dependent arising) continues (after death). But you have trouble with rebirth? Why? How else could the process of dependent arising continue? Took me a while, had to think a bunch about this ... and did some reading, though not too much (because I don't like to condition my mi...

I once had a therapist who, after coupla years of intense work, said I cured her of thinking she could ever "cure" anyone.

I feel like I'm collaborating with many different teachers and traditions, like we're building a raft together. :cheers:

Re: Rebirth and karma

I guess I'm a polygamist when it comes to spirituality; monogamy just doesn't cut it for me. Well, at least you're not a spiritual polyamorist. That's the worst. Spiritual tourism might be even egregiouser. Buddhist sunyata is so profound! Jesus is so poignant! Hindu gods are so colorful! Brahman i...

Re: Rebirth and karma

Where I run into discomfort is in joining a tradition. There's too much baggage for me in that ... runs too against my nature. I guess I'm a polygamist when it comes to spirituality; monogamy just doesn't cut it for me. Again Thinley Norbu's analogy applies, you want to cross the river, but refuse ...

Re: Rebirth and karma

And lets be honest here, you've talked many times about your uncomfortable feelings regarding "tradition", is that not true anymore? I can appreciate spiritual traditions in that they have each found their unique ways to realization. And most of them are rich in forms: systems of thought,...
