You are missing my point. As usual.
I would not dream of contributing to the Pure Land Land or Nicheren threads because they are not my tradition and I have received no instruction in those traditions. That seems to me to be common sense and also respectful to those traditions.
The same applies to Vajrayana and Dzogchen threads. You cannot simply apply a critique to those traditions using modalities that they themselves do not use.
That’s fine and I repeat I will stay clear.
Out of respect, I won’t argue. But I want to say until we all are enlightened, we will be trapped in the five aggregates. Fact. We all use intention tell me if you start sitting to meditate without arising intention you are going to sit and meditate.
Frankly, I am not bothered by wherever you want to post. I don’t care to get it with people or even bother most of posts. But that’s personal. Out of respect, one person feels bothered by me is enough.
Asking questions of other traditions is a good thing.
But that is not what you do. You pull out the only song you know “The Aggregates” and play it whether appropriate or not, and as a critique of posts you are not empowered to critique at all. If you want to discuss Dzogchen or Mahamudra then receive empowerment’s/pointing out and the instructions.
No contest. But if you think supreme methods automatically surpass aggregates, then we all would be enlightened immediately.
if you are simply interested and want to ask questions I’m sure that those questions would be welcomed.
You don’t think that you play police right now? But I can accept that and for the last time, I do not want you to comment on my posts and I will not comment on your posts. How about that for a peaceful behavior contract? I think it’s also helpful to know each of us is imperfect as we are as a human being before we even bother with Dharma.
Make personal vows.
