In the Ksitigarbha Sutra, which I’m reciting today, the Bodhisattva’s Birthday, n dedicate merits for, it mention if one dreams of evil ghosts, family members n relatives, or one is wandering in dangerous paths, or having many nightmares of wandering with ghosts n spirits... all these represent karm...

Re: Guanyin's method

I wish I had the language skills to penetrate contemporary Chinese Buddhism. My exposure is limited to watching grainy VHS videos broadcast late at night on public access cable channels of an old monk giving lectures to lay people with spotty subtitles. This was years ago - I don't recall the teach...

Re: Guanyin's method

The thing is there are just many people who have studied both Tibetan Buddhism and Chan in China since they are both very popular. That's not really what I'm talking about. I'm saying that there have been figures in East Asia who claimed to be masters in Ch'an, have realizations from Vajrayana prac...

Re: Guanyin's method

Hi, I was reading the chapter on the Shurangama Sutra that describes the method he used to attain enlightenment: turning his faculty of hearing inward and emptying his awareness. Is there a commentary on this chapter that provides more detail on how this is done? I’ve practiced it, it’s known as th...

Re: About a nihilistic adrift of Buddhadharma

Can we say it actually meant non-self; not no self. No self is largely interpreted as no soul while non-self is being selfless in nature without attachment.

Re: Working with anger

2. Stay with it in its pure form, pure anger, without encouraging or even attending to the stories that accompany it. Pema Chodron says pure emotions tend to burn themselves out after about 90 seconds. If stories enter the fray, these 90 seconds can become hours, days, a lifetime In anger today n i...
