Okay, so I got done mantras for meat, but what about eggs, roots, garlic, onions, and so on? How does one purify those of their defilements before eating them?
Just say grace.

Oh, nvm, sorry, this is a Buddhist forum, I forgot.

Just say ġrāce.

Re: Circumcision

To your point, I'm not convinced there's any consensus at all regarding the question of whether God has a body or a gender among Abrahamic traditions. Anecdotal evidence of this point: https://danielomcclellan.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/is-god-circumcised/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_in_Mormoni...

Re: Quote of my day

I just found this in a Pāli sutta. It made my day.
“Kā cānanda, [...] upāsikā bālā abyattā ammakā ammakapaññā?"
And who is this [...] stupid bumpkin laywoman mango-picker with a mango-picker's intellect, Ānanda?

Re: Non Buddhist enlightenment

Which raises the question of provenance and (deep breath) authenticity in terms of mainstream Buddhadharma. Or even in mainstream Zen. I'm not sure if one popular scripture would be enough for that, IMO. In the excerpt quoted before from the Taishō recension of the Uttaratantraśāstra it is the sign...

Re: Non Buddhist enlightenment

Go on.... When you say hugely influential how widespread is this view in eastern Buddhism? And how does that sit with Rinzai or Soto teachings?

[talking about someone else's position] the Zen doctrine is no doctrine, which is still a doctrine.
Is no doctrine a doctrine?

Re: Bhadrakalpika Sutra

Here's a dumb question, why kalpika in this context? Why not just kalpa?

It reminds me of Daśabhūmikasūtra, why bhūmika? Why not just bhūmi/bhūmyaḥ?
