Re: Compassion fatigue

Before I do something good I have to give myself a pep talk about how Buddha..... I think that compassion is not the same thing as "doing something good". We can do something good out of pity or out of expecting something good in return for examples.... We can feel compassion and do nothing when we...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

What do you expect, chownah? What do I expect with respect to what? What I hope is that people (inclucing you) will see that you are here not being a mouthpiece for UG as you imply but that you are being a mouthpiece for your own fabrications. I'm not even sure if they are even based on your romant...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

You don't need me as a mouthpiece for U.G. You being a mouthpiece for UG would be one thing but you are not even that. You are a mouthpiece for your own romantic musings on a man who from what I have seen of him would reject everything you are saying. chownah What do you expect, chownah? What do I ...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

U.G. said many times that all it takes is a fraction of a second of the break of this continuity and the whole thing collapses, the end of the dream of existence.

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a 'psychic knowledge' of all experience. Keep in mind that I am a 3rd party relating what someone else said using words that are not perfect or precise. Do they exist? You seem to take particular exception with the way some people express things. It is not a pe...

Re: Do you think ignorance is abandoned in the beginning when attaining stream entry ?

I don't think that ignorance is "abandoned"....at least not in the usual sense of the word "abandoned" as used in the english language.
