Dharma in the context of the Dharma Wheel Forum

I've just noticed that we all have a possibility of adding somebody (i.e. any forum member) to the list of "foes". I am not really sure, to be honest, if it is particularly compatible with the spirit of Buddhism and Bodhisattvas. What do you think?

Maybe it’s better highlighted in Jung or Joseph Campbell that it is in Buddhism. But I’m sure you can find something
Where exactly in Campbell and/or Jung should I refer?

Re: The Wheel of Life (Bhavacakra) - a scholarly analysis

Dear All,

Thank you very much for all the responses. What I was looking for is something possibly close to Mark Epstein's discussion in his "Thoughts without a thinker" where he provides a reading of the wheel of life as a "a Buddhist model of the neurotic mind". Do you know anything similar to this?

The Wheel of Life (Bhavacakra) - a scholarly analysis

Dear All,
I am looking for a scholarly discussion of the wheel of life, interpreted - if possible - along psychological/psychotherapeutic (i.e. more or less this-wordly) lines. What are the books and papers to which I should refer? All the best,
Daimonion
