[quote="Thrasymachus"]What I have found is that on forums if what you write, or you yourself are not liked by many of the forumers, especially the people in power, you will be suspended and banned period, no matter how you behave or don't. Also the corollary holds: you can break rules and be nasty,...

Re: Is ignorance just the dimness of awareness?

NO.

Cosmic Gods descend to lower planes if they are ignorant inspite of being highly aware.
Human ascend to become Gods because they are more Wisdom oriented though they are much less aware.
Awareness and Wisdom together create Bhoddisattvas and Buddhas.

Ram, The Lotus Sutra is the pan-ultimate sutra in my opinion, however, if you do not have grounding in the basics of Buddhism you will not understand the Lotus Sutra.

Re: EGO

Whole of Lotus sutra page after page describes, Bhoddisattvas and Buddhas doing
creating, teaching, ruling, possessing.

I thought this is EGO. Not small ego but EGO, PURE AND SIMPLE.

Again my question is where am i wrong?

I have been told to ask questions and not write about what I think. Agreed.

How can Buddhas make so many universes without using their EGO?

Re: Richard Dawkins: If I met god when I die

Awareness increases with meditation Desires are not right if one is following Hinayana/ Therwada path of Budddhism. In Mahayana one has to DESIRE for the benefit of all humanity. Hinduism/ Buddhism are mere words. What I am writing about is the absolute TRUTH or Dhamma law. Gassho, Seishin.[/quote]
