Re: Buddhist monk mail-order service via Amazon

Some do. Kinda. But I don't think they are very orthodox. certainly not baptists.

Re: Why Pureland?

The high lord of Tacos and myself go back a few, even if he is a hellbound traitor to the nichiren cause now :tongue: Idk man. Like I said, if religion is all more myth than metaphor, maybe I need to go running to a church house. The whole, "don't argue with me, argue with God" line of reasoning go...

Re: Why Pureland?

Didn't come here just to disagree. My bad. The 40 foot pole comment set me off. There's been a lot of drama in other PL discussion groups (fb) lately; with people asserting that everything must be "mythic story" or it's just "Christianity with Buddhist terms". The assertion that PL & Christianity a...

Re: Why Pureland?

it's clear that Shakyamuni Buddha is not abandoned in Honen's teachings. A major concern of mine, so it's good to know this. Pureland, though, is presented in SGI material as being almost "anti-life" and against changing things in this world for the better. I always thought that was more a Japanese...

Re: Why Pureland?

I got the Nichiren practice resistance too, likewise for Zen. Nichiren called Zen the practice of Celestial Demons... Doesn't get much cooler than that.

Why Pureland?

http://pds.exblog.jp/pds/1/201211/08/42/a0100742_10415033.jpg Lately, I've been thinking a bit about Pureland Practice. My understanding is that that it intertwines with Zen to an extent, is easier for those who are less educated or unable to devote a great deal of time to practice to engage in, an...

I think soundtrack music is sometimes underrated. I guess it takes time to see what will last and what won't. This tribute to the Ricardo Montalban and accompanying music struck my fancy today.

Re: Authoritarian personality

And what if they hear the teachings and they aren't freed. Then what? Then you keep supporting them until they are, and that, my friend, is the role of a real teacher. The rest is all bullshit. This seems like an interesting tangent to pursue briefly, and it potentially relates somewhat to the subj...
