Re: Observation = Ego?

I'm not going to provide anymore sources to you because you will just go ahead and ignorantly reject them like the last time I did. You dont seem to know much about Yogacara which I find many references about the Ego. I already gave you a bunch of references. You'll probably say something like.. Wel...

Re: Observation = Ego?

Yes there is Ego in Buddhism.. It's about Getting rid of the Ego.. The Buddha acknowledges that people have an Ego and we need to deal with it. You comparing this to a soul is irrelevant. The Buddha taught that people don't have a soul instead they have an Ego that needs to be lost. In order to obta...

Re: Observation = Ego?

I cant show you the ego anymore than I can show you an image from my mind... Manas-vijnana is to perceive the subjective position of the store consciousness and erroneously regard it as one's own ego, thereby creating ego attachment. manana consciousness is associated with four causes of affliction ...

Re: Observation = Ego?

Ego is self. Am I identifying with a self by thinking "I see this" Am I creating a sense of self by identifying with an observation. I know the Buddha refutes the Atman! Thats why I'm asking the question. AM I identifying with a self.. What are you talking about the Buddha never spoke of Ego? The 7t...

Re: Observation = Ego?

It cant be impossible to answer my question.. I'm asking does this involve Ego? When I think "I see this" , "I hear that" , "I think this" is this part of the ego because I'm identifying with it in a way when I think "I" how is this a hard question?

Observation = Ego?

I was meditating today and I observed a thought that arised it was "I see that" I'm making an identification here and it starts with "I" does this interject the ego (7th consciousness) because I use the identification of "I" or is it only the mind (6th consciousness) saying "this is observed" Does o...

Re: Solipsism?

A solipsist would never ask this question. And if you are asking the quesiton, you obviously aren't a solipsist. Bertrand Russell wrote: As against solipsism it is to be said, in the first place, that it is psychologically impossible to believe, and is rejected in fact even by those who mean to acc...

Maitreya?

Is there only one person with the Title of Maitreya? Or are there many people? I ask because I had a vision a while back of this gigantic Pure realm paradise that was being run by millions of 3 different kinds of beings.. Maitreya's, Krishna's (Are there other Krishna's out there as well?) and then ...

Re: Worship?

What do you mean by worship? If you say your understanding is that it isn't part of the Buddha's teaching, then why are you asking if it is required by a practising Buddhist? Has someone told you to worship the Buddha? Or do you think that there are others who do worship the Buddha contrary to what...

Did the Buddha ever ask for worship? It is my understanding that the Buddha never asked for worship. Is worship a requirement for a practicing Buddhist?
