Re: What's the meaning of "life is duhhka"?

Ultimately this life will let you down, but it's full of opportunity to to help others, have compassion, and live fully if you know how to accept it for what it is. Compassion is the key. Devotion, even, if you understand it in the context of compassion. :buddha1: _/\_ ps My question in the accept,...

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

Thank you for the quote of Shantideva Kausalya. I cannot other than agree that to stop the feeding of 'the grasping idea' and its unfulfilled desire, is to open our heart for all. Love and affection are certainly desirable, needed for optimal functioning/development in humans and others. It is best ...

Re: Moderation

Moderation? Reminds on Paramita discipline, because google says moderation is self-discipline. Be a quiet mountain, when any unwholesome comes up, then thoughts are allowed to subside and there is no further running into unwholesome speech, action. Engage in wholesome by altruistic mind, for benefit...

Re: mental habits

Whatever is effective.
Meditation on impermanence of all can always. Relaxes and so frees from the tightness of grasping.

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

H H Dalai Lama said as well, if we do not receive love in childhood, it will be hard to be caring. Still those who are not able to love, are seen as "bad ones", while they themselves are already victim, having been deprived from any needful care or kindness and are thereby empty of possibility to ca...

Medicine for own heart.

Re: Non Buddhist enlightenment

we work very hard to keep up our delusions of being unenlightened, and slacking off in this demanding job is the easiest way to see the truth! The more you

relax

and stop working on the illusion that you have concerns, the more you will see your true self.

Re: Emptiness

when you have experience, in the very moment you define the experience, you left emptiness. Thank you. A cut as appearances on 'this side' and emptiness at the 'other side'. Broken *nondual equipoise*. Even cannot actually be broken, still broken/left. All definitions are phenomenal, and so as well...

Re: Purify a disease

Hi all, The story is long, so let's just straight to the meat of the question. Some time ago someone in an improper manner said to me, "you are a leper". I don't have leprosy but I am kind of fear I will develop the disease. Who knows I had committed something unwholesome in the past life that will...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

There was this idea that if you have anything more than one teacher, you're trying to walk two paths simultaneously, that you're basically dilly-dallying and not committing and that your practice will never go anywhere. I cannot understand how it would be restricted. What is necessary depends. An e...

Re: How do you know you're not just making karma worse??

At what point can we say that suffering is not just the result of individual karmic debts? This is a very interesting question, which is going beyond my poor limitations. Instead of being able to provide an answer, other questions are popping up only: if all karmic debts would be purely individual,...
