Re: Our Anti-War President

Trump's policies do not fit the usual Republican mode. His hope that other nations handle (or not) their own conflicts is one of them. https://americanmind.org/post/president-trump-puts-an-end-to-endless-war/ I honestly don't understand this article at all.

Re: Starters for Non-Buddhists

Starters for Non-Buddhists

For one starting a Buddhist club (my new school has a Christian club already, though it’s very open variety here in NY unlike when I was in TX), what should one present forth that isn’t religious? For instance, which meditations from the Vajrayana and Mahayana sects are “secular,” yet Buddhist by or...

Re: Trump Impeachment

Post-truth - hear what you want to hear. The reality was probably more like this satire: https://politics.theonion.com/trump-mortified-...

How to Solve Arbitrariness?

So I've noticed that sometimes, I feel depressed or not content with the dharma and begin acknowledging other paths, particularly Christianity (based on my own interpretations), sometimes going as far as leaving to worship whatever. Then, at other times, I then come back and confess and all that stu...

Re: how do I set up an altar for worship and prayer to the Buddha?

Hmmm...I guess my piano and violin can serve as offerings alongside some fake flowers and lamps (though I'm assuming I need to visualize the Tathagata/Bodhisattva residing there if I cannot have their physical image honored)? Would an arrangement of books, papers, writing utensils, and equations be ...

Re: English is actually Chinese, scholars claim

Cultures will do what they can to say they are special. The Chinese are no different than the Americans, than the Canadians, Israelis, etc. An aside I just remembered: there is a whole movement that believes the Iliad and Odyssey are British epic poems that take place in Britain.
