Re: Compared to other Buddhist sects, why is Nichiren Buddhism the best path?

What's the matter? Did I brush against a cavity in that horn of yours? People, like KeithA, intentionally stir things up, and when called out with commensurate nonsense, pivot to playing the fool to laugh it off. KeithA's problem is he didn't know when to put the motley away and kept doubling down ...

Of course, opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink!!
It's okay. Every asshole is NMHRGK.

That can also be taken as pro or anti.
Yes, yes!! Now we are getting somewhere. :smile:

I will stop now, though. I am being a bit of pill.

take care, friend.

Re: Compared to other Buddhist sects, why is Nichiren Buddhism the best path?

Have you heard the one about a dog and Buddha nature? It's a humdinger!! I actually haven't, care to share it? The famous Zen parable of "shit on a stick" can be similarly read as either pro-Zen or anti-Zen. When we read something, it passes through our filter of likes and dislikes.The shit stick s...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

No matter what happens, I think it is safe to assume 8-9 out of 10 Rupublicans are going to vote red. So Trump/Republicans certainly have a chance. However, the reason the Dems lost in 2016 was because of an uninspired base. They didn't lose. They won the popular vote by by four million. They simpl...

Zen is a self indulgent delusion that delivers one to hell. :smile: Note where you're offering your opinion. lol! just a little trolling friend.

Re: The Dangers of Diluted Buddhism

Yikes...I tried to read it, but all that pointing of fingers and harumphing is just a big yawn for me. The Dharma is just fine. All that "they" and "them" stuff is so precious.

Sorry, I don't have citation for that. It's just an opinion. Probably not a very good one, at that. :tongue:

Re: Pittsburgh massacre

Do people still want to insist . . . that Fascism can be countered by peaceful resistance? The Buddha is reported to have said, “Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.” Thanks Clyde. :heart: This thread is nothing but an excuse to b...

Re: Buddhist Cuisine - Shojin Ryori Recipes

This isn't Japanese, but it may be worth a peak:

Un Mun's Cake

It's a collection of recipes we use during retreats, plus some discussion of various health/food topics. Some of that stuff veers close to food dogma for me, but that's just my idea. :)

Re: Zazen

How do I practice zazen? I have heard that focus on breathing meditation can be called samatha, jhana, mindfuless of breathing (anapanasati). Is zazen sitting in lotus or half lotus and doing nothing? The typical (excellent) advice is to find a Sangha/Teacher who can help you with your questions. I...

Re: boring questions about losing weight

My Doctor recommended intermittent fasting, but I have to say, I feel like it would only be possible for me on days where I do no activity, which is not many. Despite being a little tubby, i'm really physically active and it seems like that would really be a problem with fast days. Still, I may jus...

Re: boring questions about losing weight

I really enjoyed a book called "Buddha's diet". It is basically 16/8 intermittent fasting but from a buddhist perspective. Quite a nice read and also great form of eating to stay healthy I'd say. I was going to suggest this, as well. I generally don't eat until noon and stop between 6 and 8 pm. I d...
