God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody.
What is ChNN referring to with "base" here? I mean, which Tibetan term corresponds to it?
Gzhi, not kun gzhi.
Ah, thx!

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Not sure if I'm getting your point here, Karma_Yeshe. What I said was that some, or actually quite a few Christian Theologians have an understanding of God that is compatible with Buddhist teachings about the alaya / kun gzhi. If you say that some others don't, OK, it doesn't really contradict me, d...

Oops, sorry, I just noticed I wrote Augustin, actually I meant Aquinas, Bishop Barron quotes him quite often in this context.

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Remains the problem that Rinpoche's understanding of god has little to do with the christian concept of god. It has, if you read e.g. Nicolaus Cusanus, Meister Eckhardt, St. Augustin or Tillich. ...or watch this, for instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak-riGdz-UM https://www.youtube.com/watc...

Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

There's a quote by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche that I've come across a couple of times, could somebody tell me where it's from? “Most Westerners receive a Christian education and in the Christian tradition God is very diffused. God is recognized as something outside. They don’t know that God is i...

Re: Should a mother who is emotionally neglectful and indifferent be honored on Mother's day?

Forgiveness has a connotation of letting someone off the hook. As you reference, it can't be divorced from its Christian context which, rightly or wrongly, implies absolution - excuse from the retribution, a break in the cause and effect process (Christ died for our sins, ie. he sacrificed himself ...

Re: Should a mother who is emotionally neglectful and indifferent be honored on Mother's day?

That's more what I'd refer to as "reconciliation". I'm using the word forgiveness exactly in the meaning I've specified above. Of course, if a person is completely uninsightful reconciliation is never going to happen. My mother for instance has not only severely abused me and my brother, she has als...

Re: Should a mother who is emotionally neglectful and indifferent be honored on Mother's day?

And to avoid a misunderstanding: like I said, sometimes you need a safe space to recover, and sometimes it takes time to heal. When you feel it's too difficult for you to visit your mother, I'm the last person to judge. After all, I'm in the same position.

Re: Should a mother who is emotionally neglectful and indifferent be honored on Mother's day?

Forgiveness is not a feature of Buddhist practice as far as I know. I've never heard of forgiveness as a practice. Compassion definitely is. Hmmm, maybe the word "forgiveness" isn't typically used in Buddhism and is traditionally more associated with Christianity, but de re I'd say even if the Budd...

Hi, I'm not a Nichiren practitioner, but I have a similar problem, I hope you don't mind if I give my 2 cents...
