Re: Songs about Buddhist themes

I always liked that song too and it is very good about impermanence. But that one major flaw is pretty bad -- certainly the earth and sky will disappear one day! It might be a billion years or so, but still will happen. :tongue: Here are the lyrics to Toy Soldiers, by Martika: Step by step, heart to...

Re: Hi all

I feel attracted to the attitude and tradition of the Mahasiddhas: several of them initiated both Bön/Buddhist, Hindu/Buddhist and even Jaina lineages.

Re: The Six Paramitas (Perfections)

Perhaps compassion (karuna) is also intertwined with the dana (generosity) paramita. I suppose real generosity could not happen without compassion.

Re: 100 Million Mani Retreat 2009 25 – 27 Dec 2009

When I first read this title, i thought it was 100 million man retreat. :tongue:

But I guess that could be possible (100 million men) via online participation, etc.

Re: Buddha Nature

A question I currently have concerns Buddha nature. What is the difference between Buddha-datu, Tathagatagarba, and Buddha nature? Are they all the same thing? Do different Mahayana schools teach them differently? Buddha-datu = 如来蔵 Tathagatagarba = 佛性 Just messin' with ya' :tongue: (I don't know Ch...

Hi venerable,

I remember you from e-sangha. I posted mostly in Modern Theravada where I read some of your posts too. My screen-name over there was vipassana8.

32. "You must be a monk or nun to get enlightened."

Re: Was the Buddha enlightened before he appeared as Shakyamuni?

Had Prince Gautama not been a richand handsome prince, not had more beautiful wives than all other men, not been a better athlete and scholar and so forth, how could he be credible, later, as Gautama Buddha, declaring that worldly possessions are not everything? Had he just been a poor yogi, many m...
