It was great to see Uruguay being successful again this year after so long out of the spotlight. But the other countries do need to raise their game.
Uruguay finished 4th in 2010 world cup, too.

Dharma sees our human bodies as wish fulfilling jewels.
Just to add: This is only true for Mahayana and Vajrayana. In Hinayana, the Body is also seen as dirty. There are even practices around this theme.

Re: Football World Cup.

So what are your thoughts about today's final?

I guess France will win, because their style fits really well against the way Croatia is playing.

Re: Football World Cup.

I think we need some change on the side of players. Germany has many players that won more or less everything there is (Özil, Müller, Hummels, Khedira, Kroos, Neuer...). They are just not that hungry any more (which I can totally understand). So if Löw and Bierhoff (who plays an important role, too)...

Re: Football World Cup.

I think you need to look at your World Cup history again. Eight Nations have won the World Cup and England is among them. Once, yes. Uruguay has won it more. (Actually Uruguay was a serious team up to the 70s - it was good to see them do well this time.) The problem with England is their almost unl...

Re: Enlightenment

Inner peace is nice, but not sufficient.
Buddhism sounds more like a religion than a path.

The path is to realise wisdom and compassion.

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

ChNN is a master of Buddhist philosophy. He is not saying the two teachings are equivalent or lead to the same goal. Kevin... But he is saying that: "They don’t know that God is in our real nature. If you have that knowledge and you are reading the bible, you can see there are many words that indic...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Not sure if I'm getting your point here, Karma_Yeshe. What I said was that some, or actually quite a few Christian Theologians have an understanding of God that is compatible with Buddhist teachings about the alaya / kun gzhi. If you say that some others don't, OK, it doesn't really contradict me, ...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Remains the problem that Rinpoche's understanding of god has little to do with the christian concept of god. It has, if you read e.g. Nicolaus Cusanus, Meister Eckhardt, St. Augustin or Tillich. I'll wether stick to Bonhöffer or Rahner when it comes to christian understanding of god. I mean you als...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

This quote stretches the upaya aspect too far, imo. It does not make any reference to or imply that the christian teachings are upaya. It just explains how someone with knowledge or someone practicing Dzogchen can understand the christian concept of god. Remains the problem that Rinpoche's understa...

Re: What is an existential threat to Dharma?

There's a sutta where the Buddha basically says that the Dharma will disappear when monks are more interested in other forms of entertainment than in actually listening to Dharma teachings. So, I guess a lot of things are a threat to the Dharma... The sutra is about the source of the teachings. Bud...

Re: Without Buddha I could Not Be a Christian

What makes a Buddhist practice a specifically Buddhist practice? I think it's the context in which one practices (Buddhist teachings) and the intention with which one practices (bodhicitta). In the absence of both those things, seated meditation (to give an example) is not a Buddhist practice even ...
