What does "worse" mean? "Worse" isn't an argument, just a feeling. Why shouldn't he dislike something you like? Surely you must dislike something or other that he happens to like a lot. Have compassion. If he's confusing feelings for an argument, gently point this out to him. Ultimately, all likes and dislikes have been washed away.Kunga Lhadzom wrote:Someone said on another forum (not here) that Tibetan Buddhism is the worse kind of Buddhism....my blood is boiling !!!!!!
I don't even know what to say to people that think like that....what would you say to someone that said that ?
I think it's better to say nothing....they wouldn't understand anyways....or appreciate....
I see no logic in the fragments you posted, but surely you can see how someone might arrive at the conclusion that TB is not perfect?Kunga Lhadzom wrote:He's one of those intellectual types that uses logic to understand reality...has no room for the esoteric.
Heh, half learning. Does he know the Dalai Lama's not even head of the Gelug tradition?Kunga Lhadzom wrote:"I strongly dislike the entire Lama paradigm. I also think Tibetan Buddhusm is the worst form of Buddhism in existence. The Dalai Lama is merely the head of a bad system, much like the Pope is for Xianity. "
Dislike is not a problem. Whether or not this is all he has to say on the matter, I hope he takes a good, hard look at his dislike one day.
PS. Also, look at it this way: He dislikes TB. You dislike his dislike of TB. Hatred begets hatred and the cycle never ends.
