Re: Way to Buddhahood

Will wrote:They are identical, but 'buddhaship' is not found in any modern dictionaries I have checked. It was used by HC Warren in his translation of the Jataka Tales. He wrote, for example, "the attainment of buddhaship" - meaning 'buddhahood'.
Hmm... Thank you. I'll think about it :good:

Thank you for the answers, but I have to say that they don't answer the question.
Intuitively I tend to agree with Huseng... But I don't know for sure.

Re: Way to Buddhahood

Guys, is there any difference between words Buddhaship and Buddhahood? Or it's the same? :shrug:

Re: Kalachakra 2012

There is a thread about that here on Dharmawheel. Basically yes, but it differs from Lama to Lama. Thank you, I've looked through :thumbsup: There were very good arguments. And one more argument plus (that wasn't mentioned yet): if the teachers do these translations (webcasts), it must mean that it...

Re: Kalachakra 2012

And one more question if you all don't mind. :meditate: Why (and what way) is Kalachakra connected with time? Kalachakra - a wheel of time , right? It's very important for me to know, but not tons of words... if you please, in a couple of sentences :) I'm often tired of reading in English too long.

Re: Kalachakra 2012

I've been watching the webcast on-line. I liked it, 't was interesting :)
First in life I take part in webcasts. Do you know guys if some other teachers give such teachings? and where to know about the planned ones?
Thank you d'avance.

Re: Diamond Sutra in latin

Oy, only someone clueless can question the value of Latin Buddhist sutras. Latin used to be the common intellectual language of Europe; it's now becoming very popular in Europe, the US and other countries, so if I read the sutras in Latin or wrote a book on the Lotus Sutra in Latin, tons of people ...

Re: Diamond Sutra in latin

Okay it's a stretch but I'm thinking about the late survival of languages like Friulian, Ladin, Occitan and so forth (not that these examples are all that close to Latin either but there might be some Romance/Rhaeto mix hold up in some village somewhere that might be close enough - dialects can be ...

Re: Materialism and Buddhism

In this case, it's very useful to remember that we can't avoid the day of death.
We will surely die, without exceptions. And we'll be surely unable to take even our underwear with us. Nothing to take.
So, the attachement to things is merely ephemere. Desire to things is illusive.

Re: Diamond Sutra in latin

Still, there is some beauty in Latin. D'accord :smile: Latin's ancient and beautiful language. Even two volumes of Harry Potter were translated to Latin (and one volume to ancient Greek). I noticed that language is a very important part of any masterpiece. For example, I like Tolkien in English (hi...

Re: Diamond Sutra in latin

Then there might be some very minor Romance language in the wilds of France or the mountains of Spain that is close enough to Latin to make the sutra useful. Perhaps Helvetica (Swiss Swiss) as well?

Re: End times propaganda in Buddhism?

So would it be correct to say that the actual teachings (the "mark" of Dharma as they are referred to in the Diamond PrajnaParamita Sutra) are conditioned and thus impermanent but that the Dharma itself is unconditioned? Yes, for Dharma has its conditioned and unconditioned form. It's been already ...

Re: End times propaganda in Buddhism?

In general, the discussion came to the same: Absolute and Relative Bodhicitta. all Dharma teachings stem from Dzogchen. Dzogchen will be the first teaching in any given eon and the last. As for Dzogchen teaching you're completely right. It's a very deep teaching, teaching of the nature of Reality. I...
