Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

Silence is the answer .... A poem. :smile: 1. Experience Chan! It's not mysterious.  As I see it, it boils down to cause and effect.  Outside the mind there is no Dharma  So how can anybody speak of a heaven beyond? 2. Experience Chan! It's not a field of learning.  Learning adds things that can be...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

It is a sad consequence of forums that intellectual developmentalism as a preference seems to predominate over advice to explore the revelatory, which is experiential and requiring little conceptual or rhetorical exploration. Things are fine the way they are, but there's always room for improvement...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

So eternity is empty and arises dependently. Eternity is a concept. an interpretation upon perception. Just flipping the title around flippantly, since what all this boils down to is just intellectualising. Exactly. Instead of explaining things which will lead to further intellectualisation and gra...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

Can you parse this out more? Sometimes giving everything away is poison. I meant write it in grammatically-correct English. Sometimes giving everything away is poison means expounding the dharma can lead to causing deep attachments. Hence in that one sentence is the explanation of the previous post...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

That depends any grasping that it is so or not so on a conceptual level is falling into error, hence if understood no questions arise and theres nothing in need of explaining. Hence understanding the arising of the inquiry is sufficient and leaves no room for grasping "correct dharma" Can you parse...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

What Inherently exists then ? On what does this question depend? You "should" come to see why such questions are false and are unapplicable and not conducive to awakening. Such questions are very good, and are easily answered, requiring no speculation at all, and are in fact very conducive to awake...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

If things do not inherently exist, what is it that inherently exists ? What inherently exists, does not depend on anything for it's existence. All phenomena is caused by dependent origination. What is it that does not depend on anything for it to exist. (I haven't read the quote yet you posted...i'...

Re: Is dependant origination eternal?

Buddhism rejects eternalism regarding all compound things, but what about the flow of karma, cause and effect ever moving myriad things? Even after kalpas upon kalpas it would seem that it's posited that the process of being and non-being will continue indefinitely, thus creating an eternal system ...

Jesse, I am sorry that you are feeling oppressed. Believe it or not, I can relate. This is a heavily male-dominated forum, where female points of view are not discussed, where only a male mode of debate is practised, and where, as a result, women do not feel welcome.

Re: Can other religions/philosophies/practises complement Buddhadharma?

An agenda there certainly is. And there are those who might suggest that posting repeatedly to a Mahayana/Vajrayana forum to assert the equivalence of Vedanta and Buddhadharma is pretty trollish. :lol: Wow you are an expert in locking the world up in a mental picture!

Re: Can other religions/philosophies/practises complement Buddhadharma?

To identify oneself with the particular is all the sin there is. The impersonal is real, the personal appears and disappears. "I am" is the impersonal Being. "I am this" is the person. The person is relative, and the pure Being fundamental. This is completely incompatible with dependent origination...
