Tea is already Buddha
Coffee is Muhammad.
Wine is Moses

(I was born in a Jewish family; even kids are allowed to partake for the rituals and almost every ritual includes some wine tasting or drinking).

Re: a confession

Lucky for you, apparently there were no cameras in the area. Most temples and houses of worship have cameras for security. You could have been charged with at least a misdemeanor, vandalizing property. Or worse, what if someone got sexually assaulted in that area and then the police, judge, and jury...

Re: I don't want parinirvana,should I follow a different path?

I am not ashamed to say that is one of the reasons I left Theravada. Nibbana sounded like endless deep sleep. Similar descriptions are given by Samkhya and Vedanta. It was not a good motivator. Of course, there are also other people to think about, like my family and dogs, so I wouldn't want to bai...

Re: Historical Buddha

In 2013 archeologists discovered a 6th century BCE shrine they believe may have been a Buddhist shrine marking the spot of Buddha's birth. https://www.cnn.com/2013/11/25/world/asia/buddha-birthplace-buddhist-shrine/index.html The Edicts of Ashoka are even better than scriptures, such as sutras or th...

Besides the sutras and numerous ordination lineages tracing back to Buddha, there is archeological evidence too.

Re: I don't want parinirvana,should I follow a different path?

The Theravada view does appear to be basically non-existence as we know it, but they say it's not annihilation because there was no self to begin with. Is this the Mahayana view too? See for example: https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=25166 You should spend more time here. :tongue: I thin...

Re: I don't want parinirvana,should I follow a different path?

Doesn't the bodhisattva vows include continual rebirth for helping other sentient beings?

Yes, there would be rebirth, but in higher, better births, not necessarily as a sewer rat . . .

Re: Dharma Paths -- Reborn

I found no better place to ask this. Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere. Is Dharma Paths permanently down? I've been trying to reach the site for days. It's the one affiliated website I haven't visited yet. I believe it's up. Check this link to see if it's just your computer or for ever...
