Re: What happened to Buddhanet.net

They do not include 'anything' in their e-book offerings. Matter of fact I found no NKT books listed. They seem to prefer Chinese Mahayana & Theravadin, with a few from FPMT. http://www.buddhanet.net/ebooks_m.htm It seems you don't understand what I am saying. I am not talking about ebooks at all. ...

Re: What happened to Buddhanet.net

Anyone know what happened to buddhanet.net? Something happened? I wouldn't know, as I don't visit sites that promote NKT and their kind. It's an NKT thing? I thought it was run by Theravadins. It is not an "NKT thing". I said it promotes NKT, which it does. This website lists Buddhist centers aroun...

Re: Chogyal Namkhai Norbu books and so forth?

The only books that are necessary to mention on a public forum are his public books. And as such I think "The Crystal and the Way of Light: Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen" is well worth a mention. Very good book that goes to the essence of the teachings.

There is this problem, where Amazon links turn invisible: http://www.amazon.com/Miphams-Beacon-Certainty-Illuminating-Perfection/dp/0861711572 The above link will now not show in this post (and is replaced by a lot of space - it is still in the post but you have to quote my post to see it).

Re: Rabbit's Horns

We disagree. It is not a question of agreement or disagreement, it is a question of basic definitions which come from Abhidharma. The question of whether space and cessations were existents was settled a thousand years before Tsongkhapa. The only way one can argue that space and cessations are exis...

Re: Assisted Suicide/ euthanasia

I've wondered how it's viewed from a Buddhist standpoint. I'm pretty sure it's a no-no... Correct - as Buddha in the Sutta-Nipata put it: Laying aside violence toward all living creatures, both the firm & unfirm in the world, one should not kill a living being, nor have it killed, nor condone killi...

It was not a final pronouncement, since I rather doubt all of Tien tai thought can be reduced to this sl...

Good answer, Magnus. But, if it's Naga sang , then only on Lu-theb days when the Nagas are amenable to offerings. Otherwise, it will actually create problems with the Nagas. If it's Riwo Sangchod or some other general sang-chod, then every day or whenever you want, most typically in the morning, an...
