Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

The Discriminating Mind Right understanding ultimately means non-discrimination-seeing all people as the same, neither good nor bad, neither clever nor foolish; not thinking that honey is sweet and good and some other food is bitter. Although you may eat several kinds of food, when you absorb and e...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

I cannot recall that I have come across such "accomplished" trolling ever. Really ... there are slight shifts in his responses as to the degree of potential provocation (of course there always has to be a counterpart for it to work), also slight shifts as to his language skills in diverse postings ...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

Dear friends,

While I am writing here, I am aware of that I am killing.
When ever there is a name of what we are killing it will have unwholesome effects.

Stay natural and mindful.

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

That is why we need to be careful when we use right and wrong. From my view, there is no different between take somebodies life or banner him. But it would not have that much unwholesome effects on whom who is bannered. For those who banner, it will come again and again. The problem is to believe in...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

But it is exactly because the Tathagata has sympathy for living beings that he teaches them what is right and what is wrong. THIS is his task! Why? Because the beings are bond in samsara and HE has sympathy for them. Kind regards As long as there is a task there is no compassion and there will be a...

Banner for example, is that a kind of killing?

What do you think Mr. Gordo, is killing right or wrong?

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

"2. The "there is no right or wrong and we are all one" fantasy" From my awareness, there is no right and wrong. But if you deny that there is right and wrong in the context of the Buddha's teachings then you reject he Buddha's teachings and we do not need to discuss any further. Why? Because we do...

[1] In the case of words that the Tathagata knows to be unfactual, untrue, unbeneficial (or: not connected with the goal), unendearing & disagreeable to others, he does not say them.

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

"1. Acknowledging the particular human condition of individuals ..." I guess that is very important and it needs the knowledge of different conditions, as if it is not known, there could grow some different level between the "other" and "me". There easy grows: He is more poor, he needs help, I can d...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

I guess one good way to attain more awareness is starting to listen to other opinions. "Listen to" is fine. But this does not necessarily entail "accept" or "agree to". Kind regards Do you have a task? When you have a task you can not easily listen, your task will be more dominant. One will be alwa...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

I guess one good way to attain more awareness is starting to listen to other opinions. If we are just present and observe what is going on, without the desire of running between, we can not only find out the desire of others, we also find out our own desire, hatred and fear. Attaining peace, needs a...

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

Dear CSEe, I think it is like the picture of your fish. When we are not very mindful we like to share something, here it was the fish, but in the background we share our "self". When ever we share something that is very close to us, we mostly share our self. Do you think awareness is something very ...

Re: practising and non-practising Buddhists?

Practising moral virtue and being a 'good' person is not what defines a Buddhist - it is Refuge in the 3 Jewels. Buddhists, Moslems, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Jains - all may practice moral discipline, but for quite different reasons. The motivation for a Buddhist is derived from Buddha's teachings...
