Re: Tibetan and Mahayana and kshangabhanga of cittas and a self

There is a point when it is not understandable by cognitive intellect only. You desperately need a good and stable meditation practice (e.g. shamata & vipassana) in order to look through this philosophy. With your strategy of asking questions endlessly without grasping the base you would neither be ...

Re: Hotheads

Yes. Often it is not possible to stop somebody's anger. They'll get rather angry with you instead. Keeping silent and waiting for the right moment to present your peaceful view is the only practical measure often. But this depends on the person and the relationship as well. In addition: In case you ...

It's very difficult to give a diagnosis or advice from afar.
Keep calm and never go down to his level. Keep appreciation and respect.

The world's suffering makes me cry. But that's no help.

Re: Prayers vs. Help

I think, the question 'either/or' is not necessary. It's okay, if you don't want to help in a physical way, if that work is likely to endanger your own health. If you can't keep distancing in that helping work, you are endangering the health of others as well. For me this is an important point. We c...

Re: Words

I have to say, I can understand both sides of this discussion well. I think, it could become a fruitful conversation, if you (all) stop to accuse, to pillory and to exaggerate. What's wrong with being polite and clear about the matter? I see a great chance for widening everybody's horizon, if you co...

Re: What is the exact correlation between Nirvana and Buddhahood?

This is a quite easy explanation by an Indian Zen teacher about the difference in which context the terms 'Arhat' and 'Bodhisattva' are being used: https://bigpicturezen.com/2008/11/24/arhat-vs-bodhisattva/ This link explains the different pathways of a Bodhisattva or an Arhat (Shravaka): https://st...

May I humbly suggest to the moderators that this thread be closed. Cussing someone out and the rest of the bombardment is anti Buddhist, anti Dharmic in every way.

Re: How do you make sound a 'neutral' experience (vs. noise)?

Foam earplugs or if you need to hear the medium frequences musicians earplugs. They filter and dim the high and the low tones. Earplugs are only for cases of emergency, because they weaken the ability to hear in longterm. Like any other organ has to be trained in order to work well the ear has tiny ...
