Re: Four Noble Truths in Shingon Buddhism.

It's important enough to be mentioned in several treatises by Kūkai that's interpreted through Shingon lenses like in the seminal work known as the 'Treatise on the Ten Stages of the Mind' (J: 十住心論 ; Jūjūshinron [Note: I haven't come across any full vernacular translation of this work but snippets o...

Re: Buddhas before Lord Tanhankara

I am unsure if this link will be helpful to you but the difficulty of your question lies in the crossing of two starkly divergent traditions, hence the list of past, present & future Buddhas have to be tread on with care, even with the near shared legacy of the Āgamas that are preserved in the Tripi...

Re: Which school...?

I understand, but I'd prefer to follow strictly the teachings of a school. Jodo Shinshu doctrine says that to pay homage to Amida is enough because it means to pay homage to all buddhas and bodhisattvas. So I couldn't say "Om Mani Padme Hum" anymore? A bit difficult to me. This is something that no...

Re: Which school...?

Before I practiced Vajrayana, I have a Chenresig empowerment and bodhicitta vows. I don't want to show disrespect to any buddhist traditions (I admire all the Buddha's ways to Enlightenment), so up to now I've made a mixed practice. There are no sanghas (of any schools) next to me, I should have to...

Back then, when I practiced with Dharma Drum Mountain , these were recommended preliminary practices developed by DDM's Founding Master before an actual sitting. There are 2 types and anyone can try it out for themselves to calm both body & mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl78LH5R9k8 https://w...

Re: Is Śūraṅgama Sūtra authentic?

I'm not entirely sure if it matters if the sutra itself is authentic. The dharani exists independently of the sutra, in many different versions, including Sanskrit copies, and Tibetan versions. I think it's quite likely that the dharani itself is of Indic origin. Since it was circulating independen...
