Superman, Santa Claus and Indra were waiting for the bus.

Who was waiting for the bus?

Nobody. There is no Superman. No Santa Claus. No Indra.

:shrug:
Well, technically, Santa Claus is Odin in evolutionary history and in other cases, a Russian snow spirit who for some reason, the Commies dressed blue instead of red as they are.

It's kind of fun to see Trump as a demon, the flip side of a god. His role: To mercilessly expose us to ... ourselves.
Meh. Maras are liars. Not digging your demonology.

Alas, poor Donald, I see you more as a clueless frightened sociopathic old geezer who happened to wander into the throne room (of the asylum) when no one was looking.
Whatever Trump is, besides the POTUS, is something to consider.

The Mandala of Donald Trump:
Image
It came to me while deep in samadhi on Jan. 20, 2017
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.

Lies aren't un-truths, they're variations on the truth. Trump is helping us ignorant earthlings understand that we create our own truths/facts. Don't like the show, change the channel! :tongue:

They can be. My contention is whether demons work that way. Like I said, Maras are liars, better dismissed or vanquished through exposure. I don't think Trump is any species of demon. I could believe that he's a mean old man, however.

Now, in all fairness, I don't know much about Hinduism but it occurred to me that whenever they worship mahatmas or mahavatars, the guys in question are usually dead. Does RT knows something that we don't?

My take on demons is quite different from yours. (Then again, I'm a horror movie lover.)

My Nyingma teacher speaks highly of demons and of their ability to burn away (behead, skewer) delusion.

And then there's this lovely book, which I got after someone recommended it on this forum (I think): Feeding Your Demons.

I just "do what Buddha tells me" in this degenerate age. :lol: And I only have so much patience for "demons," or anything resembling one in the spirit of their words or actions, such as displaying intentional cruelty and/or persistently being harmfully deceptive. Some let demons attack them, some "behead" them, like Buddhist protectors do.

Is Trump "demonic?" I don't know what to think. I know this term ends in 2020. If you think he's evil, it would be interesting if you got a mantra from your teacher for Queequeg's mandala and attended some Alt-Right rallies to purify yourself.

Tell us how it goes. :meditate:

Many of us are horrified by the troll in Chief, but they just don't know history! There were Roman Emperors who were troll level 10000 compared to the Donald's amateur level attempts... I suppose that just tells us we have yet to reach the depths of depraved possibilities. We're such prudes!

My apologies to those who I offend. It's really just a joke at the gallows. If I can't laugh at this president, I'll cry.

Apparently he pissed off the Illuminati's lizard bosses, which just isn't done. :shrug: I mean, people act like he's been shipping people to Dubai by secret lottery to pay the national debt.

Not a fan of the child separations, mind you. Less than 2 years left for his term, though.

When President The D says that the stock market will crash if he's impeached... I almost kind of wonder if it means he'll make it crash. :o Crazier things have happened in history.

How long until the US elects one of those as POTUS, in your opinion?

Like tenants getting evicted who trash the place on the way out the door... He will sign some executive orders breaking the market and then invite the Russian prostitutes to take a dump on the desk in the oval office.
