I know this is a weird request, but does anyone know of a Dog Sutra? or where dogs feature prominently?

Re: Namo Amituofo recitation

Thanks for sharing. Great video. I prefer to meditate in darker rooms too. If there is too much light it's distracting.

Re: The Pureland of Green Tara?

It is mentioned several times in this book: http://www.amazon.com/Delog-Journey-Realms-Beyond-Death/dp/8177690930 but if I recall correctly there is not much detail. Here is another reference: http://www.yulokod.ca/buddhas.htm I think the passage quoted there is from the book above. Amazing stuff. ...

No Fap

This is an unusual post, but I think it's important. Recently I found a community of people that voluntarily avoid masturbation and porn. But not for moral reason. For health and sex performance reasons. It's on Reddit, called No Fap. http://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/" onclick="window.open(this.href);r...

What is your opinion? The nembutsu & following other faiths

I know of a lot of people that live with dual religions. They are neopagan and Buddhist. Pagan & Christian! (I know). So do you think, someone could practice the nembutsu, be a pure land Buddhist and also be a Wiccan? (for example). Would there be any problems with this, in terms of your ultimate go...

Re: Elitism in Buddhism?

When Buddhist groups are going good, they are very good. When Buddhist groups are going bad, they are very very bad. I've said before that the Buddhists are the only religious group on line with the honour of having their number 1 forum site collapse in a heap because of in-fighting. Have you been a...

Great Thread.

I see the nembutsu as key, however I am inspired to follow the dharma any ways.

I'd love to remove facebook form my life, but unfortunately it's too useful of a tool.
