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...

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... When you say you feel like she doesn't deserve it, it sounds like you still carry a lot of anger within you. It would be very good for yourself if you could find a way to overcome this an...

OK, if somebody wants to have the text, PM me. I'm not going to put it online publicly as I don't know if McLeod's translation free, but I hope it's OK when I share it with this community. I made three corrections to the text, at least I hope they are corrections - if I screwed this up or if somebod...

honestly, I am happy to having had more replies to my post than Malcom's I never actually replied to the post you made. Wow. Malcolm, you've really become much more affable than in eSangha days, but this post really reminds me of the good old time when there was a thread "How to cope with Malcolm" ...
