What does it mean to you?
Being perfect
Seems impossible
Incomprehensible
Takes forever

Re: Enlightenment

I think I got a glimpse of jhana during Samatha meditation, unless I was experiencing the first jhana or the state of samadhi. I was very happy and peaceful. I like the tradition that I took refuge in, and am reading "Teachings in Chinese Mahayana Buddhism." I took vows to acheive enlightenment as ...

How do you attain enlightenment in Mahayana Buddhism?
By being a Bodhisattva, and waiting for everyone else to attain Enlightenment first .

It's better if you ask a zen teacher. I also don't want to risk sharing my secrets with wimps. But, why not be a little naughty..

Just ask as fast as possible "the f# is this sh*t?" until kensho is achieved. That's it.

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

There are so many missing text books in Buddhism and contamination with Biblical sources, that we can never have conclusive empirical evidence about what Buddha taught, or what Jesus taught, etc..... There's a lot of missing information. But when I listen to my heart....it's open ...and only love ca...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

What if you saw ChNN walking on water. Would you think it was because of his attainments or just something anyone could do ? Non Buddhist spiritual practitioners (who have no Buddhist attainments) can gain siddhis. ChNN is a Buddhist master, so I would think it was because of that. Kevin... Yes. Al...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

More specifically putting Legion into the herd of 2000 pigs and them running off down the bank drowning in the lake. 30 Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. 31 The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” 32 He said to them, “Go!” So they came ...

there is no final conceptual answer to things in Dzogchen, so certainty and authenticity does not come through ideas, even if ideas can be useful.
Then why do some people seem to know so much ?
But the "non-conceptual"...is more "intuitive" ...wouldn't you say ?

or just say nothing...(silence)

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

But sometimes i get mixed up and think Extraterrestrials have something to do with our creation... And i think religion is how they brainwash us.... We have no control over our minds...they can control us, and make us think whatever THEY want.... They can even manipulate phenomena...just like yogis...
