Re: Would I be correct in thinking that the enlightened knowledge gained by Buddha-hood

Appears to be so. Each thought has no form shape or size yet it reflects appearance.

Re: simultaneity of cause and effect

How does transmission work? Buddha acts cause clear mind in sentient beings. Of course sentients must have planted seeds with Dharma/Buddha, so when hearing Buddha expounding Sutras they become attracted to Buddha's presence whether his powers or words can cause sentient beings to liberate instantan...

Re: words enter the intellect: one is known.

Re: Western Myth of Zen

Zen is a concise teaching of Mahayana, Buddhadharma, or Mahaprajnaparamita. For example, if mind is not found anywhere, how can there be any suffering, cause of suffering, or liberation be found anywhere? Initially Buddha pointed out cause of suffering, then Buddha talked about no cause of suffering...

Re: Tibetan Zen

If even the state of buddhahood is an illusion, attaining the two benefits of buddhahood is also an illusion. Why should any being even bother with the Dharma?

Re: Threatened at work

I work at an assisted living place for people with mental illness. I advise you to be kind to them, and don't hold any particular thought about them. They are just human. Also pray for them and all other staff members. Try it.
