Re: Music time

Bokki! Your avatar reminds me of our family dog. What I remember of him most was his rancid flatulence and bad habit of eating his own dried fecal matter, but he was always happy! Tina Turner is a Nichiren Buddhist as well. She was once affiliated with NSA, but is now an independent member, I believ...

Re: Dealing With Demons

Pacifying, enriching, magnetizing and finally destroying and generally in that order. Source(s)? To view sentient beings as pure evil is very Christian. Kindness and giving can break many demons. Some thrive on destruction. What I wrote may not communicate my intention accurately or you may be proj...

Dealing With Demons

I was curious about what different traditions of Buddhism say about "demonic" entities and how to deal with them. Always been interested in learning about the various types of beings mentioned in the sutras, but how does one deal with the nastier ones? In fact, knowing that Dharma protectors often d...

Re: Music time

Bokki! No one studies Greek and Latin anymore. What are things coming to? I think even Enta knows those though.

Re: Dash Avatara

This doesn't add up. Our own solar system has 10 planets, counting Pluto and Niburu. Guatam Buddha the 16th son of UNiversal Wisdom Excellence in the chapter 7 is not born on our earth at that time. Please read this chapter and everything will become clear to you. That sun had 16 planets. Which sun...

Re: Dash Avatara

Now we move to chapter 7 .....Phantom City..... The evolution has moved further . Suns and Moons have acquired SONS. in this case these SONS are in fact the PLANETS. These planets rotate around the Suns. Each Buddha exists in cosmic form and HE now has a sun as his body. This doesn't add up. Our ow...

Re: Dash Avatara

I have been writing on Lotus sutra on this forum and at other places. A stage came when I understood the sutra , but I could use to my advantage the WISDOM gained through Lotus sutra. If one sits in meditation at seat of ONE VEHICLE ( Innumerable Meanings --translated words by Burton Watson), one g...
