Re: is a home made statue acceptable?

The Lamrim teachings say: firstly, Buddha statues cannot be judged by outward appearance. Every statue is worth the due respect.
And secondly, it is a very meritious deed to make a statue or paint a picture of a Buddha or a diety.

Re: Guess who said this?

Oops, yes, I meant if you understand god as a person or not. Nope. Not that. But once you get into yidams and dharmapalas it can sure seem that way. Yes. But this is a common misconception of people who do not really practice a yidam or dharmapala. Isn't it? At least I believe so. As soon as one pr...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

I hope Trump will be stopped soon - such people often stumble upon their own feet. The sooner they fall the less people they can harm.

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

The American empire has been in decline for a while... Trump is a symptom, not a sudden cause. Trumps fans are indeed misinformed, IMO so are 90% of self described liberals who live their own bubble these days, one which involves distinctly ignoring some of the reasons for Trump's success, and simp...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

The tragedy is that the Trump fans feel save in their bubble of misinformation. Nobody can reach them.

As cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic, virtuous actions done on this day are multiplied one hundred million times. Practices specifically recommended by Rin...

Re: Help me get over my jealousy

For me the best way to lose jealousy was to let go. I do not own that man and I cannot rule about his emotions.

Re: Should a mother who is emotionally neglectful and indifferent be honored on Mother's day?

So my mother has just never really been there for me throughout my life in the way that I needed her to be. She has always been indifferent and distant and also abusive and/or allowed my step father to abuse me. Yet, she wonders why I haven't seen her in over 15 years. She doesn't want to talk abou...
