It is sad. I am still at the stage where I cannot comprehend it. How can the universe be so structured that such a thing is even possible? It seems so utterly wrong.

Re: can one mind enter another?

To see the contents of another mind is not the same as becoming another mind, so I see absolutely no conflict between independent karma and telepathy. I've had very little practical experience with it though. I'd say there's more to it than simply cranking up your level of empathy until it happens.

Re: Why is Nichiren Buddhism marginalized in the American Buddhist community?

I think the reason Nichiren is a bit marginalized is that most western Buddhists are coming from a protestant background and are trying to get away from the protestant mindset. They find too much in Nichiren that is too familiar.

Best guess, anyhow.

Re: Are there many former Catholics/Christians here?

I spent about seven years as a semi evangelical, and was a Pioneer Clubs leader. There was church storm, I got fed up and left, and happily found the Dalai Lama's teachings on the net. Been happily Buddhist ever since.

Re: confused,excited,and learning

And how come so many of the tulkus and higher lamas in western sichuan and tibet have bmw,audi,mercedies? Well the tulku system is a bit broken.

My computer is currently in bad shape, malware-wise. This causes many internet pages to display very roughly. All the same when I log in there are options missing - I no longer see the options to view my posts, view new posts, or active threads. Has the board been updated, are the options gone, or i...

Re: Is this considered lying?

The world is illusion, it's all deception. The mind misapprehends just about everything. The fault lies in ourselves, not the stars.

Come to think of it, even the appearance of a fault is just an appearance.

Re: Your opinion of Pope Francis

Well he seems to embody Christlike virtue better than any pope I can think of... he seems to take the standard virtues seriously and personally.
Thumbs up.

Fortunately, from that other non-perspective perspective, there is not you or I, termites and families, aliens or earthlings (or earth), not life or death, no space or place to fall. Gassho, J I'm not quite sure what to make of this. I think you're saying that from the perspective of a rock, which ...

We're talking about the deliberate extermination of an ...
