Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

Lets' say it briefly: the Nirmanakaya is dependent on 'our karmic possibilities'. By that there is no presence but dualistic vision.

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

In this prespective, in the standpoint of buddha, we have no other choice than the four reliances, 'a person' (or teacher) also is one of the element of uncertainty, every person has their own agenda and opinions, so can never be recommended as a source to be relied, in this case, only the dharma i...

Re: Is the new "Spread Mind" philosophy actually Buddhism?

How to see that? The problem is that to analyse these words is not sufficient 'to see from where the talking is'. The thinking mind is used to give its interpretations about the phenomena-talk only. - Consciousness is the object one is conscious of. "When you look into space, seeing stops. Likewise,...

Re: The world is getting worse and worse

Re: overpopulation, its recently come to my attention that the world population has literally doubled since I was born in the 1970's. This fact should not be underestimated. I have been thinking about that. As in some places with less people, there is more care for each other. While by overpopulati...

Re: The world is getting worse and worse

So if that is a theme, and it is true that the increasing global economic activity of the last 5000 years has led us to meditate less, be more busy (enter electricity), and increase the afore mentioned egoism (see "finding youself", "being yourself", etc...), then yes the world is getting worse.

Re: "Forgiveness Is Not Buddhist" Article by McLeod in Tricycle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWXkZjx1YwM Forgiveness can be seen in different way.

That means, like your milerepa quote, there is no cognition of differences between people. No aggresive/sexual Sogyam Rinpoche vs realitively peaceful graceful and asexual his holiness the dalai lama, That is for me why devotion - compassion are never two labels and are actually the same.
