Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

In that site I linked, it mentions this stuff and quotes Buddha as saying "It is not that I quarrel with the world but the world quarrels with me." I was specifically speaking of the Jains trying to bring Gotama Buddha down. In religious communities were huge fights for territory in those days and ...

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

Red dust, you're obviously not talking to me, but I don't think Buddha fought with anybody. He had debates and he said much of Indian religion was useless, but he also taught basic respect for others, to give alms to Brahmins, etc.

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

CURRICULUM There is no rigid curriculum for Buddhist “education” although there are general guidelines such as the Three Courses of Study (vows, meditation and wisdom), the Eight Right Paths and the various levels of learning like the nine vehicles of Samantabhadra. Followers of Buddhism will progr...

Re: Music time

Wanted to start a whole thread about this song and video OM MANI PADME HUM but it's probably not worth it. I find it annoying, but I like the song. Quite torn. Seems exploitative and devoid of actual value. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQWTCJkgoKg and so does DEAD MANTRA... but, I like that song, ...

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

I think Jack Kornfield did good. He was very calm and composed and answered well given his audience. He was not talking to Buddhists. The viewers I imagine would be mostly Christian, Jewish, agnostics, atheists, and new agers. Imagine how many he might have turned away if he answered something like...

Re: How to handle people with anger issues?

Take this online personality test. http://www.ipersonic.com/test.html It might surprise you how accurate it is. It described 6 people I know to a T. The point of taking it and comparing is you see how different people really are. I think we tend to go around sort of thinking people see all the same ...

Mutsuk, Padma, could either/both of you write to Adriano and or/Elio and/or Jim and ask them to explain their reason for choosing the epigraph - and tell us what ChNN thinks of the whole thing? Also, if anyone else knows his current email who has better luck. Some of my emails get responses, but of...

Full circle! This goes perfectly with what I just shared in the Oprah thread. The funny thing is this thread is giving me an opportunity to reevaluate my own judgements of Oprah. I work with lots of women who like Oprah and I have always been annoyed when I hear anyone say "I love Oprah!" I'd be lik...

Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

The 84,000 doors link I posted earlier comes straight from David N. Snyder (owner of this forum). 84,000 Dhamma doors From The Dhamma Encyclopedia The 84,000 Dhamma doors are a metaphor to basically state that there are innumerable paths to enlightenment. In the Mahayana it is referred to as doors a...

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

I used to often find myself arguing that kids are naturally selfish and must be taught rather slowly over time to work well with others and consider other people's feelings. I think the flip side of that is most kids are naturally quite sweet and innocent and most adults are not. So, I guess an inno...

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

I love one of the first strips, if not the first, when Mr. Natural came all the way down from the mountain, ostensibly under the pretense of imparting some sort of wise old wisdom to his friends, shows up, eats their food because it was a long walk and he was famished, then asks for bus fare and lea...

I got my wife the whole Mr. Natural collection for her birthday. It was her dad's favorite character and graced the back of his vehicles. Hilarious stuff.

Re: Oprah sits down with Jack Kornfield

I don't often find myself in the position of defending Oprah, but the more wealth and power you acquire, the easier it is to work your will in the world, since you WILL have to contend with wealthy people whose intentions often are in direct opposition to your own and sometimes it just comes down to...
