Re: How do we know if our predominant state of life is that of Buddhahood?

everything is Buddha Even Trump? I was thinking along the lines from something you started in me....we are all living in the Palm of Buddha Mahavairocana, and Buddhas only see other Buddhas. i've been doing a lot practice directed at perceiving this thought.

Re: Is NMRK the definitive Buddhist path?

do you see God the Creator as a false teaching, something made up and not real . something to control populace? It's erroneous but I also don't think that people picking up the banner of Buddhism will help anything at all. interesting summary it could lead people to believe that you are above Buddh...

Re: Is NMRK the definitive Buddhist path?

That Malcolm doesn't even give links for his own assertions about Gelug sectarianism, just throws everything he wishes to assert in a dubious light. We all have observed this fixation on sectarianism from malcolm . For me to see it spill over in this section where we practice as Lord Buddha laid ou...

Re: Is NMRK the definitive Buddhist path?

when malcolm refers to Nichiren's writing as bile and talks of the rishuonkukoron ...he should discuss the writing and not just call it bile... I did not refer to the writing as bile, I said he, Nichiren, expressed bile towards Honen in his writing. Get it straight, cowboy. so it is to be about sem...
