Re: Advantage and disadvantage of ego and egolessness

This is exactly my point. Ego and egolessness are both just dreams of samsara. Good or bad? To whom? When? In which circumstances? Absolutely? :shock: In your original post you ask which is more advantageous. To whom? When? In which circumstances? In absolute terms? :? :? Both of them are illusions...

Oh, I didn't know this. I thought it referred only to the class of beings. Thank you to both of you for the info.

Re: Advantage and disadvantage of ego and egolessness

It does seem then Buddhism is teaching us to put ourselves second to the rest of the beings. Well then, this is not really compassionate now , is it? Placing others before yourself...not really compassionate. Placing others and myself as equal...that’s the compassion that is wise. So you think you ...

Re: interactions between humans and other beings

From my information it follows that the whole matter related to the Reptilians is part of the propaganda war against the white Slavic race. The Slavs were called Drako,Lechia's empire in chronicles was something obvious today, modern scientists say that Lechia never existed! Examples can be multipl...

Re: Advantage and disadvantage of ego and egolessness

Why bother practicing Mahayana? Because I wish to help beings , giving them enjoyments...while at the same time, not forsaking myself and enjoying myself. But again, what’s wrong with caring for oneself? ( in terms of Mahayana ) Because when you practice Mahayana the self should NEVER come before o...

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

Indian Punjab. The moment that state was declared Indian Army drove my dad’s fam into the Indian side. So your dad's family are from Pakistan, like my mum's family are from Turkey. Does that make your father Pakistani? So what are the defining characteristics for each category if birthplace is not ...

Not Pakistan. Punjab. Punjabis have various political attitudes. There is a distinct Punjabiness that all Punjabis relate to: Bhangra being one.
Pakistani Punjab or Indian Punjab?

Are all Punjabi into Bhangra? If a Punjabi is not into Bhangra, does that mean they are not a Punjabi?

So there’s no world? Quite clerly there is not, because if there was we would not be in the shit pile that we are. There are individual concerns which sometimes coincide and sometimes conflict.

Re: Advantage and disadvantage of ego and egolessness

I’ve always quite hated the way they framed the sentences “ Our cruel selfish concerns” and “mantra of cherishing others”. It does seem to train us to be feverishly extremely altruistic( which already proven in the world, is simply a demise ) and to lack any concern for oneself. Expecting answers l...

The 10 paramitas you can posses, Prajnaparamita (Dependent Origination) you cannot, but if you believe you can posses Dependent Origination
Welcome Jampel. This statement flirts dangerously close to complete gibberish. What does "possessing the 10 paramita" even mean?

However, when I observe followers of Islam or/and Judeo-Christianity
they give the impression of being possessed by evil spirits.
Some seem to possessed by extreme ignorance, definitely.

So there’s no Western world? No there is not. Compare a Norwegian to a Greek, for example. Worlds apart. No Christian world? No, there is not. Let's take the schism between Eastern Orthodoxy and Catholicism as a starter. Then there is now a schism between the Russian Orthodox church and the Greek O...
