Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

If you want to understand texts from one tradition, the worst thing you can do is view them through the lens of another tradition.

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

My mistake, I read wrongly. I thought you said senses are obscured or something, I don't remember. I'm not hostile. it seem you saying consciousness remains hidden and obscure. Hi Auto, what i am saying is that mind has to be fined to understand the subtitles of nama and rupa as suprmental activity...

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

Just one question, what do you mean by obscure the senses, My mistake, I read wrongly. I thought you said senses are obscured or something, I don't remember. I'm not hostile. If consciousness whatever state it is, has not had experience of transcendent or supramental realms it will remain hidden an...

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

Where exactly do you get this "Historically Indian Buddhist schools and ācāriyas were virtually unanimous in regarding the various forms of Hinduism as being (at best) devayānas, not paths to liberation.

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

Dinsdale For me the alleged dates of these texts is less important than the spiritual truth that they are attempting to convey. Its pretty obvious that the 'Gita is conveying a complete different message to that of the Buddhist suttas. Understanding the differences is perhaps more useful than sectar...

Editing lol.... Bhante MONK...... are you trying to say that this site does not talk down teachers such as acharya maha boowa, ajhan buddhadasa, and many others, are you denying that people here think that only theravada teachings are the only right teachings of the Buddha, Mahayana is a false teach...

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

I know here people are quite stringently almost fundamentally against Hindu, one of my friends came here posted something quite nice and was treated very unfriendly, he was a gentle old Indian gentleman and was confused as to what people were so rude to him. Probably because he was preaching, like ...

Re: Buddhism, Bhagavad Gīta, Mahābhārata, witch-burning etc.

If consciousness whatever state it is, has not had experience of transcendent or supramental realms it will remain hidden and obscure because mind and senses are still conditioned with-outward empirical conditioning, the profound nama and rupa in akash so its invisible to mind and senses. These rea...
