Re: What is Mount Meru?

Or as the Dalai Lama said, if Buddhism and science disagree, science should be deferred to. Unfortunately there exists a "half life of science". Should Buddhism continuously adapt to ever changing scientific theories and views? Like: as long as Darwinism and the principles of accidentality are the ...

Re: What is Mount Meru?

For example we find in one of the Suttas the Buddha saying that earthquakes are caused by breaches in the great ocean that circles the earth above the atmosphere. Very interesting. Then in Buddhist cosmology, we’re in a sort of ‘cosmic egg’ covered by a dome with a ocean above the firmament-dome; p...

Re: What is Mount Meru?

The oldest Mercator maps showed a ‘Mount Meru’ (labeled as the “Rupes Nigra” there) at the North Pole surrounded by Four Continents. We still use the Mercator map today, of course minus the Rupes Nigra and Four Continents. Around the mid-1600’s the Rupes Nigra and Four Continents gradually started t...

Re: Is Śūraṅgama Sūtra authentic?

The Śūraṅgama Sūtra is not in the Tibetan bka'-'gyur.

But the Śūraṅgama Samādhi Sūtra is in the bka’-‘gyur.

This in itself does not automatically discount the Śūraṅgama Sūtra as authentic; however maybe there’s a reason for it.

Re: Padmasambhava

This^. ‘Rimé’ is basically ‘built’ into Tibetan Buddhadharma, whether some sectarians want to recognize it or not. The main difference between schools (aside from some historical squabbles) is their debates over interpretations of Sutras, which is ultimately inconsequential. The goal of all Tantra i...

Re: Trying to find original Tibetan text of a passage

My own. I started with the Prajnaparamita Sutra in One Letter, with just a lancet and my finger, blood-only; then proceeded to write the said Shantideva verse with a pen, then using another lancet streaked blood on top of the verse then uploaded it online. Apparently Buddhist Blood Writing is a shor...

Re: Upasika Blavatsky

Agreed^.

Theosophy may not be all that.... It is pretty interesting though, and still beats exoteric-abrahamism (assuming Theosophy is not either some sort of Trojan horse for abrahamism nor some brand of sectarian-‘Gelug’).

Re: Chos-'Khor Dus-Chen Earth Boar Year (2019)

Even though Chökhor Düchen 2019 technically ended August 5th 5:17 A.M. Bodhgaya time I believe (if I’m not mistaken, in India & Tibet the new day starts at sunrise); it may not be an rigid technicality in other time zones. I.e. I would imagine that the occasion lasts at least until sundown for the t...
