Re: Pure land transcending the triple realm?

i have heard and read multiple times that the pure lands are beyond the triple realm. Now my question is the following: Where does in the mahayana suttas is mentioned this? Is there a proof of this? What kind of proof do you mean? proof that can be inferred from the scriptures. It is clearly explai...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

New interview with Malcolm is up on Wisdom Podcast , excellent as usual. Does anyone know if the text with the story of Tharpa Nagpo is available in translation? Yes, it is part of the longer bio of Padmasambhava revealed by Orgyen Lingpa. But is also available shorter forms here and there. Thanks,...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

I should have the time machine finished by Monday. It will take a few days to observe and jot down interviews of relevant parties involved in the origins and formation of Buddhism, and will have the final draft finished and handed in by the end of the week. Now you are just being a jerk, so I will ...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

By the way, Malcolm mentioned samadhi. Some time ago, I have searched high and low for objective evidence for samadhi. A laboratory test of some unusual mental state is best qualified as evidence. Any meditators who have sitted still for 3 or more days, 7 days, best is one month, without leaving hi...

Re: What is reborn after death?

Perhaps a person who values science, reason, humanism, and progress. Or a person clinging to the views that they have come to adopt as a result of their karma and environment, just as they did 500 or 2000 years ago, with the only exception that these differ in flavor. This describes pretty much eve...

What is a "modern person"? Who counts as a modern person? For that matter, what is modernity? What or who is the opposite of a modern person?

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

There is no empathy in the glassy stare of a snake because he is in a woeful realm, that of a lower animal. It is not his only existence though according to Buddhism. He is only seeking survival, mating, and his next meal. Karma implies a balance and justice and justice is a human-made term; but wh...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

I said that as I see it this is the only condition necessary so that rebirth is what makes sense to me, not that I can prove that conscioussness is ot produced by the brain. But it seems absurd to be that consciousness magically springs up from matter. Why is that absurd? Its only absurd because yo...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

There does not need to be a time when what one thinks of as ordinary consciousness or mind is separated from awareness, or whatever names one wants to give these things. As long as it is not entirely produced by a physical brain. So says you. Not to step into your living room uninvited, but what do...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

I don't think that thinking the world is just has much to do with it. All that is needed is thinking that consciousness does not suddenly appear from matter when a few neurons come together and then disappears when the brain dies. As long as this is not the case, and given that we are now in a huma...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Rebirth is very logical and rational -- if you start with a premise that the world, the cosmos is at least in the final analysis -- just and balanced. I realize that is a tall order, beginning with that premise as many people believe it's all just chaos and random chance; but if you believe otherwi...

Re: Working in the entertainment industry

what strikes me about the sutra quotation is the following: the actor received teaching that the result of his actions would be going to a god realm. the Buddha clarified that "god realm" is actually a hell and there are various causes (combinations of 3 poisons etc) for an actor to end up there. m...
