Re: Nichiren and Tantra

We all know that the three gates of liberation are śunyatā, alakṣaṇa, and apraṇidhana.  But this is something one experiences in āryan equipoise. It is not accessible to ordinary people such as myself. I have no idea about you. - No, you don't know alaksana.. If you do, you see the tathagata and yo...

Re: Nichiren and Tantra

Words are very easy to say, aren't they? Parrots can say words too. But they don't understand them. In any case, none of your points are novel, or even that interesting. When you accumulate more merit, more people might be interested in hearing you out. But that would require admitting you're just ...

- But there is no way you can attain/realize.. it.
Your position is rather pyrrhic and pointless.

Re: Nichiren and Tantra

- suchness is not a state, so is its realization. That's why i told you confuse buddha nature with view. I did not say a state of suchness, I said "a state of equipoise..." However, the term "state" is used for suchness in such sutras as the PP in 8000 lines and so on. Buddhanature is a view. Ordin...

Tientai is a gradual path, even its Perfect teaching is in fact a gradual path.

Re: original buddhism

Come again? How do they not do this? I see. You have redefined my "theory" to your "theories" thinking they refer to the same usage of the word "theory". Theory: a body of theorems presenting a concise systematic view of a subject. This is the operative meaning intended by my usage of the singular ...

Re: original buddhism

What are the actual practices of Bodhisattvayāna? That is where you find out if it is or is not a path of renunciation, not from its theory or its metaphysics. - The sutras do not teach theories and metaphysics. Those who do not have adequate roots of goodness do not believe in and/or do not unders...

Re: original buddhism

Relying on the definitive meaning in no way contradicts the path of renunciation which is clearly taught as the principle expedient means in Mahāyāna. To insist that it does means abandoning the relative in favor of the ultimate. Buddha taught two truths; the one of worldly convention, and the ulti...
