Re: need centers in my area

Incidentally, Morgantown looks like it might be an interesting spot after all.

Re: How would your life be different without Buddhism?

I'd probably be a Sufi or in a Gurdjieff group. Not sure how that would have turned out.

Re: hi

I hope you find what you seek.

Now, if you're in Morgantown now... You're not too far from Pittsburgh or Washington, DC to find a teacher of Vajrayana. Most of us have to travel for the teachings at some point.

Re: Wikileaks..Julian Asange.....

I agree that one should maintain a critical attitude towards both sides. "Both sides" means also that one should probe the consequences of Wikileaks activities: Does it harm? Does it help? What kind of information does help and what kind does harm? Where is the borderline between mere denigrative s...

Re: To my disciples, from Bishop Dr. Jongmae Park

Don't pass on all the world to the new generation A world completely handed down is like a mass produced portrait. This is particularly evocative. *** The Taego tradition is not well known in North America, but our small Tendai group shares some members with a Taego group that meets in the same bui...

Re: Mice in my kitchen.

Live trap did the job. This morning I liberated a very large and healthy gray mouse in a wooded area. Depending on your view, I either saved its life from endless torment at the hands of this myopic and confused tomcat I rescued earlier, or I just fed a fox. Or maybe you just set a future Buddha on...

Re: Differences in Jodo practices

I think you have it right there, Tatsuo. It's a bit dated, but the volume _Traditions in Chinese Meditation_ (ed Gregory) collects some interesting scholarship on this question, particularly on the tension between Ch'an and Pure Land practices early on and how Chih-i resolved that tension doctrinal...

Re: Mice in my kitchen.

This is so, Ven. Huifeng. I have reason to think the available food source for these mice is the neighbor's overflowing trashbin, a few meters from my kitchen window. I can't find anything in my kitchen or pantry that has been consumed by rodents, but I know they're lodging around here overnight... ...

Let's put harmony at risk for a moment. Just what, specifically, do you find horrible about the teachings presented in those videos? Where is your objection, and on what grounds?

Re: Buddhism and Hinduism

Otherwise you're just using such huge general categories and no meaningful discussion can be had. Yes, indeed. I think the OP isn't really asking about Hinduism as a totality, though, but is instead wanting to know if it's reasonable to compare the Buddhist teachings on the absolute or enlightenmen...
