Nagarjuna on Awareness

Does Nargajuna agree that Awareness is a permanent thing? I've heard that he refutes Yogacara mind only concept.

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...

Worship?

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?

They said if I feed a demon all its gonna do is just hang around forever.. But the book is full of examples that the demon leaves you after a while or transforms int...

I read the book Feeding Your Demons

I read the book Feeding Your Demons and Today I identified a Demon for my Restless legs.. I visualized me body as a Nectar.. It said it needed Love. So I visualized a time I was in love with some girl. The Demon began feasting on my Nectar and got greedy for it. He kept saying Oh My God that is sooo...

Solipsism

Solipsism = the view or theory that the self is all that can be known to exist.
You are the center of the universe and everything else doesn't exist only you.

This is against The Buddhas teaching yes?

Re: How can you become a Monk?

I was looking at one site and it says you need to be between the ages of 17 and 35 to be able to get monastic training. I'm 44 I have no chance to learn in this particular school.

How can you become a Monk?

While I don't believe a monastery will allow me in because of my mental illness.. I'm still curious what steps does one has to take to become a monk. Do they regulate what you learn or can you study at your own discretion?

Yes, this is usually a good thing.

Re: In 'The Beginning' ?

I personally believe in a Multiverse of recycling universes. Spread out across the infinite space of infinite Big Bangs possibly with different sets of physics that is probably alien to one another. There never was a beginning nor an end.. Because a New Universe is created every minute but is so Ins...

I like this forum

I'm a member of many forums of different religions and other things. I like this place because when I post a question people try to answer them and they don't judge me when I ask. Unlike a certain Christian forum I'm a part of. Every time I post a question they question my standing with God and they...
