Re: Existence

possibble dear friend, of that i am certain. Possible since all and all are nature. It cannot otherways. The three 'bodies' of a buddha. They relate not only to the truth in us, as three aspects of the true nature of mind, but to the truth in everything. Everything we perceive around us is nirmanak...

Re: Existence

"now in this life, total causation manifests. yet, still... one's own state of being corresponds to some freedom from that one person"... It is very delicate I think such translations because this is about liberation. If this below gives the impression that a person or 'a one knows this' : all thin...

Re: Existence

"Not one truth and one false" Yes, the two truths are never in separation, just like a reflection ( not substantial appearance) in the water. But impression of being there two ( separation); a basis and things, this is not in that way, is confusion. Nothing is separate from basic space. There are n...

Re: Buddhist philosophy and ontology seems to be beyond scientific work, right?

how does losing faith and liberation occur this way simultaneously?
Apologize since I try to understand the question.
Losing faith is by doubt-confusion, aware of this confusion, it is recognized for what it is and is not longer there.

Re: Buddhist philosophy and ontology seems to be beyond scientific work, right?

I am confidently committed to the path for this life. I think the Vajrayana requires great faith. I know i could muster it, but maybe I am afraid? Faith in the guidance seems to be crucial if we want to get out of our comfortable safe self cocoon. And guidance can be pleasurable and painful as well...

Re: Buddhist philosophy and ontology seems to be beyond scientific work, right?

Hi dear, I am not so learned but there is an 'opening' somehow by your post. It is obviously indeed so that the meaning of the Buddha is not in investigation of objective science or obtained knowledge to find. Even Buddhism recommends also investigation but not to keep investigating, rather to come ...

Re: Who is America ?

Re: Existence

Per Buddhism, what does "to exist" mean? Can this be answered (satisfactorily) without reference to the two truths? If so, please do. :namaste: to be dependently originated... Correct, that is what it means. Everything arises based on causes and conditions. That is why these days I start to become ...

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

So the reality of reality has both the two truths and their unity or convergence. There are lots of examples of this. But to try to get human, there is my skull. It pretty much does not move. But then there is my smile, or frown, all that stuff i do, at best, in some effort at skillfull means, to g...

Re: Existence

The tree exist because there is aware'd of tree? Yes, given the view "X exists" = "X is aware'd" the tree only exists when it is being aware'd (by any entity capable of awareness). For the record, I'm not asserting this view is right, I'm just kind of testing it out. But when a child never learned:...

Re: Existence

But when a child never learned: this is a tree, will there be a tree? And if not will there be nothing? What about existence by labeling?

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

What you seem to say sounds like take care for formless realm, since than you remain conditioned. There is no escape from being conditioned then and so suffering is not finished. Like the sky wanting to remain at peace, not accepting or avoiding the dark clouds or the thunder, and therefore withdraw...

Re: Advice about right speech.

Great advice by Grigoris. Gossip, spoken or even in thoughts, are beloved mental constructions.
They are foolish, I am holy.

Care is necessary because "gossip" is not so innocent, it can be very harmful, pollute own mind in the first place.

We are all born nakedly and death has no clothes. In between, we can choose which clothes we want to wear; those harming us or those for lasting peace. In a dream I looked down to earth.
