Re: The Sacred in Buddhism [from Dharma Decline]

Sacred is a quality humans assign to things. It doesn't exist outside of human experience. Indeed. :pig: "Man exudes a sense of reverence like a secretion. He smears it over everything, and so renders places like Stonehenge or the lake of Nemi (Diana's mirror) particularly sacred,—yet the one can b...

Re: Money in the time of Siddhartha Gautama

"A thorough exploration of what?" would probably be my next question. I'm not entirely sure about that. I believe that money and the Buddha are a matter that Greg Schopen likes to explore, but I haven't yet read any of his books, so I don't know what exactly it is about them that he explores. My pl...

Re: The Real Enemy is Religious Extremism

The key point that SD and I made in reply to you is that the fundamental teachings of all religions are against violence, murder, etc. But this simply isn't true. The fundamental teaching of Sunni Islam is that Muhammad lived a perfect life; the Hadiths are a reliable record of his deeds; salvation...

Re: Karma Fruit of Worldwide Abortions

I am not seeking a 'contrary' understanding' just puzzling over the scale of modern bad karma. In Vasubandu's era, how many folk would share the similar intent of killing babies - some tens of thousands maybe? In time those killers would singly reap a shortened life, much disease etc. But with 1000...

Re: Concept-free Buddhism

Is there a school of Buddhism that sees realized existence as existence without concepts? (Including such foundational conceptual structures as: reincarnation, karma, the Noble Truths, etc.) No, none at all. The pan-Buddhist teaching about concepts is not that the realized person doesn't have them ...

Re: Concept-free Buddhism

Which school of Buddhism is most concept free? The Theravada school, due to its greater emphasis on keeping the eight precepts on full moon and new moon days. Oh, bollocks.

Re: Major Sutras and Sutra Commentaries

Although the curriculum of Sutra level studies focuses largely on the Shastras and their commentaries as opposed to the canonical Sutras, certain Sutras seem to turn up in quotations quite a lot in Tibetan literature I read. In particular I am thinking of the Samadhiraja Sutra that I have seen quot...
