Folks, do you really want to start with throwing sand in this sandpit?

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

Pregnancy and birth are very dangerous and hard for a woman's body and mind. No government and law should force women to undergo this hardship against her will. It needs more than an inhumane law to protect the unborn children: protection of mothers is needed, so they have time, money, shelter, heal...

Re: Corona conspiracy theories

I understand this topic is fun. But everybody should be aware that sarcasm is difficult to understand online. So, if the factual discussion is done, we should leave it at this now.

Re: The limit of compounded phenomena

There is a limit to how far you can decompose a particle. The point is that Madhyamaka and Yogacara reject the limit proposed by Sautrantika, i.e. partless particles. The point which I mentioned holds true: when the particle one is decomposing ceases to be perceived through analysis, that perceived...

Re: Unfounded Doubts about Teachers

I think, there is no 'one size fits all' for this second question. Teachers are different, deciples are different. I'm an emotional person. Therefore my way of knowing 'It's him' was simply I felt it. I think, I know him from a former life and finally I found him again. It took decades and then I kn...

Re: Unfounded Doubts about Teachers

What's going on here? Is this something others experience? What's the antidote? I'm a connoisseur of this problem. It has two sides: - First of all, we perceive what we are. That's why even really worse teachers can fool some people some time. But in my case, finding slight faults in my perfect tea...

Re: Clarification on Ultimate and Conventional Nature of Mind in different Buddhist schools

The teachings about emptiness go back to Nagarjuna. Zen people, gelugs, kagyus and who not are referring to him.
You can discuss it but you'll realize you can't get it intellectually only. It has to be thought through thoroughly (:)) and to be meditated.

Re: Is an apology ever not in order?

Due to lack of time I haven't thoroughly read the former posts. Sorry. Here are just some basic short thoughts about regret and apologies. - In buddhist view it is an internal affair. Apologies have to come from a free heart after an insight. Therefore it's not worth to expect an apology from anothe...

Re: Preference vs. Desire

Once I learned in a course about Right Speech that the thought is first and then the emotion follows. Viewed from neuro-science. The coach in that course was a buddhist monk and educated psychologist as well. So, this means, if you controll your speech or thoughts ( the speech in the head) you'll ge...

Re: Cultural History studies related to Buddhist symbols and ritual objects

... This is a bit off topic, but some (buddhist) have said to me, that in the body of a female it is not possible to gain Enlightenment. Nobody ever told why. Then in Art History I read about lakshanas, and there was explanation, that one of the marks -whitdrawn genitals- shows that lakshanas -the ...

Re: Birthday Practices?

Searched on you tube and found some Buddhist Birthday songs. Most of them play only Happy Birthday. :smile:
Seems to me, celebrating birthday is a western tradition.

Re: "Watch of Night" Practice Authentic?

OK, if experienced people say it's nonsense, I can believe it. But sometimes investigating nonsense can lead to new insights, I find. I disagree. Discussing Vajrayana without any practical background can be confusing. But discussing nonsense around Vajrayana must be confusing definitly, I think. Th...
