Re: Why Ongi Kuden quotes Ongi Kuden ?

I suspect you are using understatement. Surely you know that Nichiren teaches "You must never think of the buddhas...as being outside yourself." - On Attaining Buddhahood. This raises a good question - Where is the Buddha? Is the Buddha internal or external? There are some aspects of Illaraza's cri...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

QQ: there's no need to insult Tucker Carlson like that with the F word, especially on a Dharma forum. And you're implying he says what he says only because of money - which is a projection as you have no evidence for that. Do you watch Tucker Carlson? I do. And I've watched him for many years.

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

Norwegian, The sheer ignorance and vitriol you display regarding Trump is what's sad. See the things he's accomplished and re-evaluate yourself. ►Move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. ►Pull the United States out of the Iranian nuclear deal. ►Stand up to NATO countries for not ponying up eno...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

I want someone who at a gut level cares about people, stands with middle and working classes, understands the gravity of environmental issues, and is ready to go toe-to-toe for the full fight, not just built for quick knockouts. We've got a generational fight, literally for survival on our hands, a...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

What about Gabbard's comments on the LGBTQ community? Kind of goes together with her Hindu religion tbh. I like Warren. She seems sincere, smart and capable. Warren has zero charisma and therefore no chance. I think she is a great senator, I think she would make an excellent cabinet member in a Dem...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

Too old. If he wins he will probably be dead by the end of this first term. There's no upper age limit, and unlike trump, he's not showing signs of dementia. Have you seen trump drinking from a cup recently? He needs to use both hands Sanders isn't a bad guy but a bit too extreme. But Chump is not ...

Re: Why Ongi Kuden quotes Ongi Kuden ?

Illaraza takes an extreme position with regard to the Ongi Kuden. His view is a minority view. He assumes certain interpretations of the Ongi Kuden are the only interpretations, without acknowledging the text itself lends itself, more readily, to views he purportedly espouses. The exception may be d...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

The only requirement to be Vice President is to be alive, and I believe that is merely convention. Is that right? No age requirement for VP? What's the VP's job except to step in in case POTUS dies? I guess Pelosi would be next in line. Whoops, the 12th amendment says that the VP has to be eligible...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

The democrat candidate who would be most likely to beat trump is probably Sanders. Bernie 2020. Bernie / AOC 2020. All Aboard Bernie. Dunno about AOC. She's not old enough, for one. And that's not just because she's young, but legally, you have to be at least 35 to be president. She needs some seas...

She's retired Navy.
No, she active in the Hawaii Army National Guard, with the rank of major.
Thanks for the correction.

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

I've been a fan of Gabbard for a while. She's retired Navy. Tough minded, charismatic. She's on board with universal healthcare and $15 minimum wage. I was impressed she took a stand and resigned her position at the DNC when it was clear they were stacking the deck against Sanders. What distinguishe...

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

... Sanders did not meaningfully split the Democratic vote. He didn't stand in the general as an independent. Some of his supporters refused to vote as Democrats for Hillary, hence my use of the term "siphon" rather than "split" the vote. Depending on where those voters lived, the effect may have b...

NMHRK is also recited in some Soto Zen practice, though my impression its auxiliary. Perhaps thats related its Tendai heritage.
Interesting. Do you know the background of that practice?
