Re: How much happy are you?

Now I think your happiness is related to your knowledge of Buddhism and how you practice it. If you are unhappy (Dukkha) means you do not have a good understanding of Buddhism. For many of us it is not easy to measure the happiness as a percentage. As a guide say your are awake 16 hours and if you ...

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

If I had a dime for every time I'd heard a conservative blame the poor for their own problems, I'd have a sizable sum, Ben Carson is a good example of this BS, Paul Ryan, the list goes on and on. If someone claims they never heard it they're probably a Conservative stretching the truth. And I'd be ...

Re: Child Lama. I think it is ridiculous.

So. I've learned at least one thing from this: There is such a thing called called Bon. But, I don't care. Because it seems to be completely ridiculous. Just like the idea that there could be a child lama. There could not be a Child Lama, right? In the Suttas, nothing like that was ever said. Tibet...

Re: Child Lama. I think it is ridiculous.

I don't see why someone can't participate in both Forums at once. Sectarianism gives me spiritual indigestion. I'm more interested in improving myself, than in clinging to the notion that "Only this Path is correct, all others are false (or misleading, incomplete, distorted etc). I'm leaning more n...

Re: Child Lama. I think it is ridiculous.

I used to be involved with Tibetan Buddhism myself and saw that movie years ago. I've also read "The Story of Tibet - conversations with the Dalai Lama" by Thomas Laird. It tells, amongst other things, about the Gelugpa sect acquiring political and military power and their leaders (the Dalai lamas)...
