Re: The Kalavinka Daśabhūmika Sūtra Suite - Some orientation Please?

Thanks. Kalavinka is laying an imporant foundation for the presentation of the Mahayana with an accent on practice. It is facinating to look at the choice of texts and order of translation of Buddhist texts by the translators carrying the Dharma to Asia. That analysis can give you a model of what th...

The Kalavinka Daśabhūmika Sūtra Suite - Some orientation Please?

Some orientation Please? For instance - How are these to be distinguished from each other and are other works pendant to this series? What's on the horizon? How's he doing? I have had near 10 translations of The Lotus Sūtra and have seen fit to retain only two. As to scholarship - there has been a 5...

Re: Six Dharma Gates to the Sublime

I seem to recall from about 6 years ago, that The Essentials of Buddhist Meditation and the Six Dharma Gates to the Sublime could be seen as "digging deeper texts" on the 10 Stage of Cultivation found in the Yogācārabhūmi- śāstra Chapter Twenty 本地分中修所成地第十二 The Twelfth Main Stage: Stage of Actualizat...

Re: Compendium of the Mahayana: Asanga's Mahayanasamgraha and Its Indian and Tibetan Commentaries By: Asanga and Karl Br

This discussion can go off the rails real easy. My Bad. I should have seen it coming. To clarify. The claims that this or that famous master declared Yogacara to be 'this or that" is a tradition of teaching that lives and breaths within a unique lineage view. So too the claims to "level" any guru su...

Re: Compendium of the Mahayana: Asanga's Mahayanasamgraha and Its Indian and Tibetan Commentaries By: Asanga and Karl Br

It is my impression that these 5 'dharmas of Maitrya' are not neccessarily made from same batter, and comprize snapshots of some rather different mindsets and background sources. What are these texts to each other?

False Memories and Questionable Buddhist Lore

I have two memories of teachings by the Buddha and their import that I wish to confirm as I can't track them down and at 67 I may be misremembering badly. I would be very grateful for references to the accurate sources for my sloppy memory. First is a teaching where he "says" "There have been Religi...
