Re: The attainment of the Arhats

The question is not whether they are bound. The question is "what kind of realization is necessary for freedom from rebirth?" The answer is: "Not very deep." How is that the question? What realisation is deeper/higher then what is free from all attachments, hence also free from ...

Re: The attainment of the Arhats

H H Dalai Lama dialogue in Thailand: The final afternoon session began with one of the Thai monks saying that while he had come to appreciate that it would be more appropriate to refer to Tibetan and Thai Buddhism as “the same goal, same path,” the Mahayana praises the Bodhisattva ideal rather than...

Re: The attainment of the Arhats

That is because bodhisattvas are able to be voluntarily re-born - as the statement says - out of 'compassion and prayer' rather than being compelled by karma and klesa. But, nowhere does this statement say that Arhats are re-born anywhere, I had understood that the whole condition of the Arhat was ...

Re: Fears mount over scale of Buddhist sect sexual abuse

'ccept that Sangharakshita was not a celibate AND there is no "natural order of things". There is a natural order of things. 1. You're born 2. You grow 3. You reproduce 4. You get old 5. You die. There are people that don't fit this mould of course but it's probably true for most people. ...

Re: Fears mount over scale of Buddhist sect sexual abuse

I agree 100% on the need for realized teachers everywhere, in all nations, speaking all languages. We're not going to get that. The closest we will get is teachers on the paths who have mastered bodhicitta, metta, karma and the basic precepts. So the actual realization will be slight at best (in ge...

Re: Fears mount over scale of Buddhist sect sexual abuse

From the Guardian : One of the UK’s largest Buddhist orders has been forced to report allegations of sexual abuse after a former follower claimed he was coerced into sex with one of its elders.
