Re: what do you think of this article on Tibetan Buddhism?

To be fair to the writers of articles like this, it’s not as if the Tibetans ever wrote texts warning of the dangers of vajrayana in general, the importance of a genuine qualified guru, and the dangers of a false guru. No, don’t recall ever seeing any of that, not at all. And there were definitely ...

The first line states that Padmasambhava founded Vajrayana buddhism.
That was enough to stop reading.
I also think that,isn't Padmasambhava who found it? I am not Vajrayana, so I don't know if there is something wrong with this

Re: Buddhism on actors

Re: Buddhism on actors

for ShineeSeoul it is real...upaya is not on the radar here.... I think you are being unfair to ShineeSeoul. S/He can speak for himself. he is attached to the entertainment industry, so he couldn't deal with different opinion/experience, he need to work on that obviously rather than worrying on oth...

Re: Buddhism on actors

Well if i read these quotes and reflect on the aim of Nichiren Shonin, The Votary of the Lotus Sutra , Bodhisattva Jogyo in the flesh, what will i realize. Simply put that listening to music, living as an householder , watching HBO , tuning into CNN to see Trump act as boorish and barbaric as he ca...

Re: Buddhism on actors

So are all the words we read in sutras strictly 100% Buddha's words or are there man made injections of agenda...?? Buddha Vacana = Buddha's Voice. All teachings that accord with the Truth, are the Buddha's teachings. This has been the standard to address questions about the authenticity of the tea...

Re: Buddhism on actors

sorry dude read this... your whole demonic music thing thanking gods you got over it sounds ....well...not right view... There is confusion over "reborn in the company of the laughing devas" and "reborn in the hell of laughter". These aren't the same places. In the dispensation to the śrāvaka the B...

Re: Buddhism on actors

You need to read the OP, you got the sutta wrong, the Buddha was saying he is having wrong view for doing acting, the Buddha is against acting "Thus the actor — himself intoxicated & heedless, having made others intoxicated & heedless — with the breakup of the body, after death, is reborn in what i...

Re: Buddhism on actors

Re: Buddhism on actors

Read the OP! I mean on Singers, the OP talking about actors I don't think there was much separation between the two in the Buddha's time - I think they were all "entertainers" in our terms, singing, dancing, acting, juggling and whatever else they could do to put on a show, but I'm not quite sure h...

Re: Mie Prefecture shrine association gets license to grow cannabis for Shinto rituals

Wearing hemp? In terms of natural fibers, I prefer cotton. Smoking hemp? It is a mind altering experience; as with all intoxicants - moderation, if at all. I find it interferes with spiritual cultivation; if I'm engaged in a period of intensive practice, I avoid all intoxicants - my daily cup of co...
