Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

Doh! I was focusing on this passage: According to the teachings heard, one should also think of His land called Sukhāvatī, which is ten million koṭi Buddha Lands away from here. One should single-mindedly contemplate for one day and one night, or even seven days and seven nights. After the seventh d...

Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

How could he visit 'Sukhavati heaven' in a reasonable time-frame - like, a few months, or a year maybe? Any tips? I have already recommended one way to do that here . How can one stay awake for three months while constantly moving ? Is that a metaphor for something? The sutra says 7 days. The Kaiho...

Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

I've never run into those people that chant with no idea what they are chanting or why, which is why it seems so unusual to me.

Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

To offer a counterpoint - those that merely recited the name, without any meditative effort of trying "to connect with the spirit of what 'Buddha-mindfulness' means" have had experiences & visions of the Pure Land. This includes Honen and a large number of his top disciples, as well as many follower...

Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

Is there any methods that allows one to travel to the heavens ( Tusita’s inner courts ) or sukhavati without waiting for another 70-80 years before death? Of course there are. Check out the Pratyutpanna Samadhi Sutra . This ^^ And though the sutra says 7 days, Tendai has a 90-day practice based on ...

Following up... look at the people we elect. We elect all kinds of gross people. Those are people we choose. We get what we wish for.
True, but given the amount of money required to even qualify as a choice to be presented before the public - we're inherently limited to a certain subset of people.

Re: Neo nazi's march in DC

PS PC, I read about Anglin. There is tons of false vile neo-Nazi material on his site, but he's always been careful to repudiate violence. Regardless, the anger seems to be boiling over. I think it is way past the time, when people undertake a massive grass-roots action to address this shocking rif...

Re: Neo nazi's march in DC

Greg, do you really believe that most of those marchers would want to kill millions of people? Maybe I am just being naive, but to me, they are largely disgruntled and ignorant people, not psychopaths.. Unfriended an old acquaintance on facebook before Charlottesville that was seriously trying to c...
