Re: Nihilistic view

I was referring to sankharas (or samskara) being described as anicca and dukkha while dhammas being described as anatta. Here, you mean "sankhata" in Pali, in all _conditioned_ phenomena are impermanent (annica). The Pāli actually has saṁskārā: Sabbe saṅkhārā aniccā; sabbe dhammā anattā All conditi...

Re: Karmic cause become gay

It's become a joke among people of my generation (I'm in my 20s) that many women my age are bisexual. While it's obviously not objective, the fact that the joke has caught on like wildfire suggests something I think. Human sexuality is not fully understood, and I think homosexuality is underreporte...

Re: Karmic cause become gay

Hello guys As far as I can tell Buddha never condemns gay people, Buddha taught us to have compassion to all living beings. But the question is, what is the karmic cause that makes someone become a gay? Thanks in advance. Traditionally, many will tell you it is because of past cheating. Specificall...

Re: The Syllable "Pey" in the Mani Mantra

The sanskrit form is Om Mani Padme Hum Padme? You mean like Luke Skywalker’s mother? Sometimes I wonder if Lucas was interested in the notion of being unable to give up the apparition of a sky-flower, the vain imputation of the self onto the other by that self's reification of the "real" that it pe...

Re: Karmic cause become gay

We can only assume being born straight is due to cheating on your homosexual lover. :rolling: Best explanation. Well, it certainly explains why there's so many straight people. It's just all that homosexual experimentation with non-monogamy. It's just going to feed into itself forever, as more and ...

Re: Soul Integration

As for monetary support of anti-gay legislation, that is a very serious allegation. My understanding is that DRBA does not engage in political activity (at least not since the support of Bush Sr.'s campaign). It would be even more troubling if funds offered to the Three Jewels were being used for p...

Re: Soul Integration

It's also rooted in apocryphal upāsakaśīla sūtras popular in China, but I get where you are coming from with Daoism. It's also rooted in Confucianism, which strict gendered roles for family members and society.

Re: Soul Integration

IMO Ven Xuānhuà can become enlightened after he deals with the ramifications of the extreme suffering he has caused for untold numbers of American gay Buddhists. His association to this very day is rabidly homophobic and funnels it's monetary weight into supporting anti-gay legislation. I don't thin...

Re: Soul Integration

Well, it was pretty secret, under the name "closeted." Which is, I'm pretty sure, a turn of phrase from the 1950s or something. Watch out, the ancient secret religion is lurking...... :rolleye: Whenever there's powerful globalist homosexual cabal myths, I almost wish they were true. I would love to...

Re: Soul Integration

You gotta give me some time here! :spy: We all actually had this exact same conversation before about the same thing. I'm pretty sure I know what Ven Xuānhuà is commenting on, and it's the apocryphal Śūraṅgamasūtra. I just need to find it.

Can we get a scriptural source for this concept of "soul splitting"?
Śūraṅgamasūtra, not the samādhi one. I'll find it in a bit.

then shall we forget the original claim of an average wage discrepancy? Forget whatever you want to forget. You are your own person. Yes, of course.
