Re: Through purified mind is there compassion.

Do you think that there is a kind of pity which let one think that it is compassion?
What if pity is mixed with a attitude of "I can help" or "how poor" or "how helpless", would such a mind state create an illusory kind of compassion?

Re: Racism in Buddhism?

You are right Mr. Gordo, as long as we see the things relative "Racism in Buddhism" is not easy possible, except maybe we would see discriminations relative. What about making non-discrimination to something ultimate on the way?

Re: Dinner with His Holiness Sakya Trizin Feb 21 7pm

Whoo that is great, only $50,--
Let me think of how I can organize some money. Well I could cut a tree and sell the wood.
Maybe its just the desire of the disciples and what ever leads to the right way will be good.

Re: Are we on the right track in learning Buddha

A good hint, do you thinks some "boogeyman" are even more on the right track? You know, this guys without shoes and dont clean them self with shampoo and so on.
Those guys, which don't use letters, TV and houses and eat what they find. You may have seen one cute on TV.

Re: Who had the ideas of vows? Was it taught?

Dear Kirk,

let me guess, somebody told you or you read it. How can you say he did? Form your own opinion, does it makes sense or not to look after vows?

Re: Are we on the right track in learning Buddha

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

Thanks for sharing,
That would be a possibility for those how do not abstain from taking and those who like interpretations. What do you mean to the questions of the original post? Or is there a vow to abstain from freely giving?
