Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Yes, you are right.
I am asking for the paramedical and medical teams, who are testing, not for people in the street. Doctors are asking those of construction workers. These are also limited.

I was wondering somewhere people already helped regarding this shortage.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Everywhere in the world are scientists working on a possible medicine what can stop the grow of the virus. Belgium, Leuven is starting with 15000 possible useful molecules coming from California. They can work nonstop, 24 hours on 24 because robots are doing the job. In that way, probably in a few w...

Re: Progress of Insight in Zen Traditions

Master? Lol. I share two quotes which can help in moment of little clarity to see the mud of minds' created illusions, even not Zen, sorry. However, not contradicting.

White Lotus, Tom, your artworks are telling the utterly craziness of the seriousness of self, thinking to going to fix it. :thanks: Self learns there is no self while seeing other as real = self. Self sees real other races, real other religions, real other gender in real world... as results of karmi...

Re: Dukkha and pure mathematics.

I largely agree with Malcolm. Dito. The creativity can be used in investigations, for example in the medical, technical research for welfare of all. It will not have direct value on purifying view/awakening, since knowledge is not to know all things but the nature of all things. Then counting What?

We of course, have a Butler. He stands by the loo door with lengths of scented silk in one hand and a tray of colognes on the other... This brought a laughter. Laughter decreases stress is said.

Re: Buddhism in non-democratic countries

Buddha sat and looked inside. Mara's play was around, challenging, flattering, demons of all kind.
Buddha sat and looked inside. He did not react and nothing could stain what he discovered.

Re: Hostile environment/political activism

I need both. I've already been helped by Queequeg's reply whether it was intentional or not. In one of tich nhat hanh's books he talks about putting yourself in a supportive environment. I'm in the opposite situation. If I tried to attend a Buddhist group in this area the people around me would que...

Re: Discrimination

I am very sorry for the way how you have been treated Herb. A bodhisattva helps without limits and putting someone off is that not. Bodhisattva helps all beings. I have not studied other religions, but Dzogchen is our nature and is beyond any religion, beyond any bias. You need a compassionate teach...

Re: Hostile environment/political activism

Buddhism has all sorts of vows, But revenge isn’t one of them. Conquering one’s enemy is easy compared with controlling one’s own mind . Yes, you can fight injustice without causing harm, and if you are clever about it, the results will be much, much more effective . . . . This is very helpful. I g...

Re: Empirically validating Phowa

You know this...how? Is this your theory? Or have you received phonation from a phowa master? Theoretically; coarse consciousness is dependent on brain but that consciousness comes from more subtle, subtlest consciousness. And that consciousness is not dependent on the brain. H H Dalai Lama.

Re: Empirically validating Phowa

Cells of the body what we call ours, are having no owner and are constantly renewing. Some more frequent than other. I was searching how about the brain. That would be each year. And still we have memories from before that year. Consciousness is not locked in cells.

Phowa makes this experimental.

Re: Hostile environment/political activism

Fight back will only increase the flames and turn what you say towards you, increasing the harm for themselves. The ironic thing is that some of the people in power probably started out like you, they wanted to make a change Iooks then like the change they wanted to make was somehow selfish and turn...

Re: All or nothing?

The vajrayana Buddhists I know (this is a very broad generalization!) lead one life casually integrating the teachings into everyday activity, but also have a life devoted only to visualization practice etc. So, can one be a vajrayana Buddhist almost purely on a “this is what I think” rather than a...

Re: Mandala Sand

I think I got my answer from one of Lama Zopa's books. It looks like the sand is applied after the breath stops. See Lama Zopa's commentary. It is possible to do that after the passing away but better before. There is written; when breath stops, do not touch the body for as long as possible. But pl...
