Re: Are Buddhas formless or form?

Those who hold the second view that buddhas do not possess the pristine awareness of things as manifold quote as their authority the Infinite Means of Purification Sutra: Having reached true and perfect buddhahood, the Tathāgata neither knows nor has in mind any phenomenon whatever.

Paths and Bhumis

Re: Is tibetan inherently peacefull ?

deserved Since when have these illusions been happening? Since time without beginning. What is wrong with them? One experiences nothing but suffering. It says in Nanda’s Abiding in the Womb: Birth is a suffering, aging is a suffering, sickness is a suffering, death is a suffering, to be separated f...
