Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

"Venerable sir, there are these various views that arise in the world concerning self-doctrines or world-doctrines.[2] Does the abandoning and discarding of such views come about in a monk who is only at the beginning of his [meditative...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

UG didn't say to drop practices, to get correcter attitude or emphazys what he says Does beauty lie in the eye of the beholder? Does it lie in the object? Where does it lie? Beauty is thought-induced. I do not stop and write poems about the mountain in front of me. What happens is that I am walking ...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

https://people.well.com/user/jct/ There is no teaching of mine, and never shall be one. "Teaching" is not the word for it. A teaching implies a method or a system, a technique or a new way of thinking to be applied in order to bring about a transformation in your way of life. What I am saying is out...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

Everything what has born will die. Body is technically already immortal, but the cells what regenerate are degenerate compared to last generation. The degeneration can be stopped and reversed, fixed, so you start heal, we heal anyway at least most of us, not healing is a defect a genetical fault. Hu...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

It remind me off the actual freedom movement led by guy named Richard, who is similar. http://www.actualfreedom.com.au/ It is possible to live in this modern era, freed from out-dated Philosophy and Psychiatry, challenging every Spiritual and Metaphysical tenet and surpassing any of the Altered Sta...

Going further than stamp 45 min is when brainwaves change. Learning is focused activity or any other activity where i want to understand something at around 45 min brain changes. When that brainwaves are on its much harder to focus and keep you on subject, its much easier to just abide and wait till...

Re: Dangers of Meditation

This the reason why people should practice meditation by following the Noble Eightfold Path. It start from right view then follow to right concentration. Without this people get in to wrong concentration which is dangerous. If you don't have depression, anxiety any that grade of suffering now, expe...

Re: Dangers of Meditation

Recently I read something online, can't find the link now. Anyway, the scholar says something like this: When we sit down and do nothing, it becomes hard for us, NOT because doing nothing is hard. But when we have nothing to do, we are forced to come face to face with the inner demons, subconscious...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

Perhaps your reading falls short. I said nothing about him telling people to drop practices. He never gave any practice. He gives practices by what he says. Its not spelled out onto a paper. You are also doing same, you have commandments in what you write. If you are interpreting what he says as so...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

This has nothing to do with jhanas. This also has nothing to do with you giving opinions regarding U.G. as you had never known or met him. If you had some real questions about him and not your dismissive comments, maybe there could be some discussion. But as it stands, I have no clue what you are o...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

All of us have the tendency to state our experience as mine . There has been and is, an activity of identification that tells us what we experience is ours, mine . We do this with our thoughts, feelings, and even objects. When we are able to learn the name of objects, we are also learning that they...

Re: Did Buddha ever know about the hypnotism?

hypnotism is fake as the headline is suggesting. It is biological mechanism. This vid roasts fake mystics. It isn't mean against the past life memory hypnotism, it kind of supports that it could be possible, see the cat and cucumber example. Supposedly that function where you are in that state past ...
