Re: Chomsky on Lesser Evil Voting

Also, I don't know where people get the idea that with Trump, we are heading for Wars. I thought it was the other way round. With Clinton, USA is likely to clash with Russia over Syria. The current establishment is funding terrorists in a bid to topple the current syrian government while Russia is ...

Re: Chomsky on Lesser Evil Voting

How do you explain that all prior polls predicted a landslide clinton victory with 70-80% and even 100% probability as Malcolm stated while it turn out to the opposite? Um, do you not understand polling? How the F do you think? Polls were wrong, that's how - especially in Clinton's "firewall" state...

Re: Chomsky on Lesser Evil Voting

Re: The Point of No Return: Climate Change Nightmares Are Al

As someone trained as a scientist and science educator, I've always felt it was stupid to address such global issues as climate change through science. That might sound shocking, but I think an entirely scientific dialog really derails and detracts from the larger and deeper issues, simply because ...

Re: The Point of No Return: Climate Change Nightmares Are Al

Evidence for the above scenario comes in large part from our best understanding of what happened 250 million years ago, during the "Great Dying," when more than 90 percent of all oceanic species perished after a pulse of carbon dioxide and methane from land-based sources began a period of profound ...

Re: How do you answer people who try to convert you?

Actually now that I think about it; Buddhism is a missionary religion. The Buddha went around and preached the Dharma. Why isn't anyone here doing the same? gassho Rory I think the missionary work in Buddhism is largely supported by emperor such as King Ashoka or emperors of China. If it wasn't bec...

Re: Ganesh in Tibetan Buddhism

Allright, it's time to set things straight around here. Ganapati is ENLIGHTENED. The intiation text connected with the 13 Golden Dharmas states very clearly that Avalokiteshvara bounds Ganapati under samaya, and threatened to split his head open if he disobeyed and did not adopt the three trainings...

Re: Dzongsar Khyentse Webcast-Is There Buddhism Without Rebi

Fairly simple, mind cannot be reduced to material events, and mind must have a cause which is nonmaterial; excluding then some supernatural cause of the mind stream, the mind stream both transmigrates and is beginningless.

Re: Anti-Tibetan Buddhism Signs

I don't think this is semantics. It just doesn't work like that. You need to recognize repeatedly and integrate, but this has nothing to do with effort, or renunciation, or with "practicing very hard". There is no way you can achieve this with effort. The only practice where some kind of effort com...

Resting "in rikpa" does not require effort, nor persistence.
There is no need to play semantics. After recognition, apart only if you are Chik Chagpa, you need make intentional effort to practice very hard for a long time. i.e resting in rigpa. This is effort.
