  • @federica said: @Humanb said: I am already aware of the controversy following the Kadampa tradition, the Dalai Lama and Shugden practitioners. Unfortunately, I see it as my karma to perceive such un-pure things happening and i put myself…
  • @federica said: @Humanb , I would explore the general reputation of kadampa Buddhism too, if I were you. You may find your concrete, resolute and single-minded focus then begins to ease up and even unravel a bit.... Kadampa is not unive…
  • @David said: Does he mention which suttas or sutras he got this from? I think his teachings have been passed down through many generations of monks, but what he teaches is basically the Gelugpa part of Tibetan Buddhism. He actually studie…
  • @SpinyNorman said: @Humanb said: Because the Emptiness of all phenomena means that all things are the mind.. Not really, I think this is where you're getting confused. Well, in the book i am reading "Modern Buddhism…

  • @David said: If you die before me, I assure you I will not vanish. Nobody has taken me with them so far. Things change. Things have always changed and so this is emptiness. This form may be empty but it is here for now. …
  • I get what you are saying about Dependent origination because the body is a manifestation, as is the brick. I feel the brick because it isn't separate from my mind. But, i can't say i agree with the fact that we each have a separate consciousness…
  • @Earthninja said: ...But somewhere on the edge of nowhere we meet without you I wouldn't know me, there is no self without other. Everything is this one dance of relationship. No river without it's banks, no tree without earth. No you without me. …
  • I was taught by a monk that enlightened beings can not be directly perceived until you, yourself have achieved enlightenment. This is because the things we perceive are just appearances to mind, if the mind isn't completely pure then it cannot perce…
