Re: Bird Koan

Cats want to cuddle
When I am trying to write
When I'm not, they're gone.

Getting so obsessed -
This all amounts to nothing!
Then, the cats come back.

That song... Just like me!
What was the title again?
Looked up. It was gone.

Maybe that bends the rules a bit... :smile:

Re: Enlightenment and Phenomena

Queequeg: Thanks for the quote, :smile: and I'll look for that podcast by Bob Thurman. A good friend sent me a link to a PDF of a commentary by Dr Peter Della Santina, entitled "Causality and Emptiness: the Wisdom of Nagarjuna". I think that might be a good starting point. I'm not familiar with Tian...

Re: Enlightenment and Phenomena

Time is not established. See Nāgārjuna's analysis of time in the MMK. Well, I could just as easily say, "Time is relative. See Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity." :shrug: but, with all due respect, how does that add to the conversation? Well, when you take the time to read the MMK, you will s...

Re: Enlightenment and Phenomena

I guess the best, most satisfactory answer to your question would be that my perception of you, currently, is my own projection. Your perception of me is your own projection. But, as fully realized Buddhas, our perception would cease to be conditioned by our perceptions and we would perceive each o...

Re: Enlightenment and Phenomena

With regards to the above, it took me some time to compose, so, I missed out on quite a bit of the conversation. I'll go back and read it through.

But, right now, it's Sadhana time. Be back in a little while. :namaste:

Re: Enlightenment and Phenomena

Well, the thought occurs to me, what about the relativity of time. Is time as empty as all other phenomena? Is it possible to consider that, being empty of inherent existence, all moments in time exist simultaneously in Mind (with a capitol M). If one considers a perspective from physics, given the ...
