  • Re: What is "Original mind"?

    but as mind cannot really grasp or cling to anything, it's all the same slippery thing in the end - enough of this stupidity!

    Mind is mind (of any description) and cannot be changed into something else - remember it's like you can't become a buddha, because you have to be one in the first place! But some people will never get that, because they are so attached to the concept of the buddha that they (can or will/or aspire to be) the magic bean that leads to the giant's castle, golden harp and the goose that lays golden eggs! (OK Jack and the beanstalk may be a fairy tale - but it suffices in this short outburst!..... or perhaps we need a few squirrels so OLD ROALD DHAL gets to tempt us with a dark chocolate trail.... like J M Barries PP Neverland or even worse C S Lewis's Narnia....

    What is worse reality, or the reality of the imagination....

    shudder!

  • Re: Not Enough Buddhist Discussions IMO

    but @karasti I have discussed other more pertinent things relating to buddhism in the past, and have become distracted by the general banter. Hence the post. Or you are not getting the thrust of this particular thread.

  • Re: Mind during sleep vs meditation vs death

    I started writing a responsive essay,
    but it became intellectually messy,
    and now, very sadly I must say.
    that I cannot ever stay...
