Re: Dash Avatara

r Dash Avtara is a sanskrit word. It is mentioned in Vedas. One can get details on the internet . It is mostly mentioned as a part of SANATAN HINDU DHARAM. Lotus sutra gives the details of the evolution process that mind cosmic energy goes through over a long period of time. The process crosses Para...

Re: Dash Avatara

Hi Riju! Your devotion to the Louts Sutra and your compassion for beings is very admirable! Of course all the teachings of the Buddha have the single purpose of leading us from common, impure beings to become pure, enlightened beings. This is how the Buddha eliminates suffering in our world. As the...

Re: Dash Avatara

All this messianic talk about god and some avatar coming in the near future is a clear sign that you have not understood a word of the Lotus sutra, or any other sutra for that matter. And my view is that you may have not understood the Lotus Sutra. And you may have partly understood other Buddhist ...

Re: Dash Avatara

"a rain of cosmic energy": is that good or bad? i mean, is it like being fried with gamma rays? Cosmic energy rain is the source of all life and matter. We come with a bag full of cosmic energy, consume it day to day and die when it is finished. If we are at the seat of Lotus sutra of ONE VEHICLE ,...

Dash Avatara

I have been writing on Lotus sutra on this forum and at other places. A stage came when I understood the sutra , but I could use to my advantage the WISDOM gained through Lotus sutra. If one sits in meditation at seat of ONE VEHICLE ( Innumerable Meanings --translated words by Burton Watson), one ge...

Re: Vipasyana Meditation

Does anyone know of books, websites, groups names of teachers which teach Vipasyana meditation in the Mahayana or Vajrayana? Just to reiterate I am not looking for the Vipassana done ...

Re: The Lion's Roar

From Avatamsaka Sutra chapter 38: Sons of the Buddha. The bodhisattva, mahāsattva, has ten kinds of lion’s roar. What then are those ten? As follows, they are those wherein he proclaims: “I will certainly achieve realization of the right and universal enlightenment.” This is the great lion’s roar a...

Re: Do we have free will?

We have absolute free will if we know that awareness in us is the deciding factor. In that state we chose our path , destination and activities. We have no free will if are ignorant of our awareness , in this case karmas and surroundings force us to take decisions. None of us have free will. But wi...

encouraging creativity

1. It is written in Lotus sutra that if one writes down the Wisdom of Buddhas all humans beings together will not have knowledge of even one Buddha. So whatever is written in sutras is not even the millionth part of Buddha knowledge and wisdom. 2. It is also written in lotus sutra that any one who d...

Re: Is the "Self" a "Rabbit's Horn"?

An interesting new concept for "rabbit/Bull horn".... This could be just your imagination inventing things like self and no self. Only thinking uses this kind of logic to measure what it is trying to grasp. If there is no 'thing' called self, then every kind of experience is a magical illusion with...

Re: Is the "Self" a "Rabbit's Horn"?

An interesting new concept for "rabbit/Bull horn".... There is a very important saying of Guatam Buddha that "All Buddhas past, present and future abide in Emptiness and follow the path of sutra of One Vehicle" Abiding in Emptiness is like rabbit horn. It is a state in which Self can not exist as it...
