Who doens't want to be married to real dakinis?
Me? :shrug:
If any of these dakinis want to get my attention, they better do a good job of showing me they can play along. I'm the prize.

I walked into a new meat market the other day that opened down the street and said out loud "this place is such a meat market."

I have heard that many Nichiren sects in Japan are traditionally conservative. I'm wondering if this is true and to what extent if so.
In SGI they taught us that there are no coincidences. A prominent symbol of the Buddha is the elephant... :shrug:

Re: Question about homosexuality & life's experience...

It seems that "pandaka" (if by that we're talking about the "five kinds of unmanly men") means a few different things, and only one of them has to do with homosexuality (and even then, it's a rather specific kind of homosexuality - and one that doesn't appear to actually exist). And further, the Vi...

Re: Question about homosexuality & life's experience...

I'd be curious to know what pandaka refers to more specifically as well. Probably something like this, but in ancient India: https://cdn.theculturetrip.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/lukas-650x418.jpg AFAIK, the term is used by the Buddha to describe criminals and men who were fond of committing ad...

Re: Question about homosexuality & life's experience...

"sissy" strikes me as homophobic. It would be, but if we're looking for a word that catches a good deal of the connotation and denotation of the original, I think it's a good fit. Not sure if the term "pandaka" was all that homo-tolerant when it was used—or if the society it was used in was either ...

Re: Politics and Toxicity

Hamlet should have revealed the court corruption and his knowledge of his father's murder without initiating the cycle of death in his revenge and then left the palace to become a hermit (for the time) or possibly a cleric or a wandering knight righting wrongs peacefully (which wouldn't really have...

The term "sissy" seems to be a best fit, given context of usage, in the same way that the English word "thing" is for the word "dharma." I might be very wrong, but there's my contribution. :shrug:

May this whole awakening thing spread and prosper.
