Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

Just a conclusion again: I thought the Mahayana way is the way of the ultimate , to get not into the danger of relativity which always would have its counterparts and makes one stick in right and wrong. Did I get it wrong? your answer: "Yes, you did get it wrong. Madhyamaka is the rejection of nihil...

Re: Are we on the right track in learning Buddha

That is indeed possible, thats why I looked to Latin to make no mistakes. Let's think about it.

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

So you refer eternalism as ultimate? Seems that I really understand everything wrong.

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

Wohh! Is that a part of the vows? Actually I could not find a hint that the Buddha founded a religion (would lead to off topic) and also no hint that he gave rules. But that would not answer my question about "Who told that, or is that your believe?" (I am very conservative in a kind of ultimative, ...

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

Dear Mr. Gordo, Actually you are right, that was just a conclusion of mine (might it be relative) You are conflating the ultimate with the relative, and seem attached to the ultimate. If you forget the relative, you may step out into the street and get hit by car that lacks inherent self-existence. ...

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

The cause of the OP was your statement (better to stay relative...), and I still try to find out if I do understand something wrong. And I am no and never serious, I dont like to lose my beautiful image :hi:

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

"If you've acquired a level of attainment yes. If not, then no." Dear Mr. Gordo, did the Buddha teach the higher teaching (if there is a higher or lower) in a relative way? Are there any disciples of the Buddha, how where taught in a relative way - are there some Mahayana Sutras (which could be refe...

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

Who told that? Or do you just refer to your believe?
"Dhamma-vinaya" — "the doctrine and discipline" — is the name the Buddha gave to the religion he founded.

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

Dear Mr. Gordo,
as I didn't revered to Vinaya: Vinaya = vows = rules?
I guess I am not good and exact in questioning.

Re: Are we on the right track in learning Buddha

"from Latin perplexus, from per- thoroughly + plexus involved" did you mean that? I am not sure, if it is good to be involved. That was not what the Buddha try to teach, I guess. Hanzee, What is the question or comment you are trying to make? Mr. Gordo, that would run out into perplex. And who what...

Re: Mahayana ultimative or relative?

Ohh this "right" view, would there be any more struggle if we would understand that ultimate has neither right nor wrong. It looks like I got Mahayana wrong.

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

mr. gordo, what we do not accept with our heart will come again and again. Even when we reject it many life times. Hope is tricky. So what do you resume for the discussion on the bother site? How about the vows and vow vows and new creation of vows (I believe you see vows as a kind of rule, but corr...

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

Thanks a lot for your effort! So when I cut this into a short answer, could we say (if rules and vows could be revered as the same - what I actually can not see like that jet) that: Vows have not been taught by Buddha. What could made the questions in the OP makes sense. When I look into the Therava...

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

Meanwhile I had tried to find something about the roots in theravadin recources and found this: ...early-period Mahāyāna Buddhism takes as its starting point the long-range cosmic background to a Buddha's attainment of Buddhahood. It looks back to his first conception of the bodhicitta, his original...

Thank you very much Mr. Gordo, I will look over it. Why do you think it will be more than enough for me? It sounds so selective, but that is just my impression.
