Re: Degenerate age

27. A Book of Genesis There comes a time, Vāseṭṭha, when, sooner or later, after the lapse of a long, long period, this world passes away.

Assu Sutta: Tears At Savatthi. There the Blessed One said: "From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating & wandering on. What do you think, monks: Which is greater, the ...

Re: Did Mahayana influence Theravada Buddhism?

The idea that there is an original non sectarian Buddhism that we can access is a myth that has been thoroughly debunked. Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism evolved because they meet certain needs.

Perhaps it is because before being a Mahaya or Vajrayana Buddhist forum, it is a Buddhist forum. Proof o...
