Re: do I have to be a nice guy to be a buddhist?

dear friends from behinningless time, if a person excels at meditation and knows a great amount of wisdom but is not a particularly nice person, can they still be an accomplished buddhist? or let me put it like this, how far can you get on the path if you are brutal or rude? what if you are just co...

Re: Rainbow Body in Hindhuism

Well according to Dzogchen every single living sentient being is already a rainbow body including that tiny little insect. Nevermind hindu or non hindu. It's all just about realizing it.

In that case, I will describe my simple little weight routine which helped me improve my health, in case anyone else can benefit from it. I will write a routi...

Re: Differences between nichiren and pureland

I guess PL is considered more orthodox mahayana. Nichiren Buddhism on the other hand is a late development which started in kamakura Japan.
