Re: Texts that destroy ""scientific" materialism

There is no need to destroy anything materialistic or not, the science will go on it own to realize that everything it's empty.

Re: does non judgement transcend enlightenment?

Phenomena and yourself are not separable so you can not go directly to yourself the way you describing it. You need wisdom to penetrate the phenomena first. Even Hui Neng penetrate first phenomena first before attaining full realization. :bow:

Re: Differences in after life experiences all over the world

Re: Book - Shingon - Japanese Esoteric Buddhism

How shingon practitioners develop wisdom? Kukai seem to be genuine while others seems to be decent, what is the reason behind it?

Re: Illuminating Quotes by Malcolm Namdrol-la

There is no afterlife, just one long bardo that begins with delusion and ends with awakening.
How do you know it? It's like saying that after death will be haven. Is not changing anything in person experience of life besides beliefs which can be anything.
