Re: The teaching of Buddha.

Thank you, I've found a little bit from them on YouTube, they do seem quite non-sectarian.
Although my dad didn't belive in any religion, it was supportive for me to have their book with me as he died.

The teaching of Buddha.

My father was very ill and died a few days ago, his aorta ruptured. In the hospital multifaith chapel they had some books to give away produced by 'Bukkyo Sending Kyokai' , The Society for the Promotion of Buddhism. I practice Karma Kagyu Tibetan Buddhism, but I did find it helpful to have this book...

Re: New to the idea, currently in a state of flux

Hello and welcome, On the question of Buddhism being a religion... well that depends on the practitioner. We traditionally say in Buddhism that there are 84000 teachings, which is just another way of saying that there are myriad ways of practicing. To a person who likes a religious approach then Bud...

Re: The Mahayana Is Not Diluted Theravada.

Simon E Its very unlikely that studying the Pali canon will do you anything but good. I think we need to be careful in interpreting what or what does not tranform sutrayana into a foundation vehicle. Motivation is indeed key and primary, but sooner or later a teacher will be needed. My reading of t...

Re: The Mahayana Is Not Diluted Theravada.

Sorry to jump in here with a question ... it is just that I was thinking about this question this very morning and then happened to notice this thread. I understand that many Theravadin Buddhists are sceptical of Mahayana scriptures - but are Mahayana practitioners sceptical of any Theravadin scrip...

Re: Schizophrenia and parenthood

The way we think about, treat and talk about schizophrenia may play a major part in the suffering that comes with a diagnosis of 'schizophrenia'. I don't think it is helpful to sufferers living right now to send out the message that it would have been better if they had never been born. There is muc...

Chhinamunda / Vajrayogini?

I've come across a version of Vajrayogini called Chhinnamunda, there is a connection with the Hindu goddess Chhinnamasta. Had a look already at Wiki and done some Google searches, but can't find out very much from a Buddhist point-of-view. Does anybody here do this practice, what is the purpose of t...

Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche - authentic?

Hello, Please pardon my ignorance. I'm asking a question on behalf of a friend. He is enquiring about this lama to find out if he is authentic and has true lineage, and is who he claims to be. The information I could find out is a bit thin and I don't want to give my friend wrong information. So if ...

Praying to a saviour?

Can Buddhists pray to a deity, Buddha, the Noble Sangha etc. etc. for help with dealing with spiritual and psychological problems?

Sometimes I feel so weak and at the mercy of my conditioning that I despair of myself and feel I need someone to save me... is this possible?

Thanks in advance :crying:
