Re: feeling happy

Trying to find actual happiness in samsara is an exercise in futility.

I just received this:
Dear friends,
We are informing you all that the Master's health is declining from natural causes. We don't know how much time there is left.
The Master has a very peaceful aspect and he is without pain.

I just received this mail now.

Very sad.

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

None of this answers the question as to why anybody should care what HHDL's view on European migration policy is. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a major international figure. That usually means whatever such a person says or does, is viewed with interest. He is a Nobel Laureate (the Nobel Peace Pri...

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

The obvious context is: please give us back our Tibet. We cannot go on like this, strangers in strange lands. We badly need to go home. Making his words into some kind of fascist call for segregation is insane, imo. HHDL has said the same thing for years now: https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f...

If this is what she said to the woman, then that is completely disgusting. 1. Do you think that just because Venerable Pema Chodron is a woman and a monastic it means that she is not inculcated into patriarchy??? 2.

Re: Latest report on Shambala abuse just released.

The project strayed beyond its nominal scope of healing, it seems, and got into criticism of leadership. That's where publishing anonymous allegations to criticize PC was irresponsible. Pretty hard to see how it couldn’t get into criticizing leadership when the starting point was exposing sexual ab...

Re: Do Bodhisattvas such as Avalokiteshvara, live in our realm, or do they live outside of samsara?

Dependently existent is madhyamika, is it not? So the domain of samsara is not non-existent, but also not 'truly existent'. It has a degree of reality. "Dependent existents" is refuted as wrong view in Madhyamaka. To begin with, the Buddha taught the following [all citations below translated by Mal...

Re: Do Bodhisattvas such as Avalokiteshvara, live in our realm, or do they live outside of samsara?

Are you sure? But I've never met anyone with eleven heads and a thousand arms. That's because you are an ordinary sentient being. Avalokiteshvara is at the level of sambhogakaya, and for you to see Avalokiteshvara as he is in that form, you need to be realized. To reduce Avalokiteshvara, Tara, Manj...
