Thanks for mentioning this. Time for some serious intellectual masturbation.

Remember to use tissue.
Buddhahood in This Life
འ༔ ཨ༔ ཧ༔ ཤ༔ ས༔ མ༔


[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra

Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

I met him once. Over 20 years ago now. Really nice man.

He's been America's conscience for a long time. You'll miss him when the Republicans win tomorrow and Trump starts rounding up the intellectuals, the Jews, the gays and the gypsies.

I've heard of him. I even have the GUARDIN' GNOME achievement. Like Bookchin when he is gone there is no replacement. http://left4dead.wikia.com/wiki/Gnome_Chompski
