Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

What is Buddhism in brief? My understanding is negligable, but what I personally hold to is the ideal of an open heart, of boundless love. Buddha taught us that we have been tricked into an state of bondage which is in truth no more real than a dream or a fairy castle. We must steadfastly tame the ...

Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

Harash speach is not a source of Dhamma. Either buddhist or hindou.

Ghandi was also inspired by Lev Tolstoï.

Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

So, you choose to speak from a place of ignorance, maligning, without justification, the Mahayana. Maybe it would be better to say nothing; maybe it would be better if you took some time to actually learn about what it is you are trying to talk about. I make some addition in my last post. I'am sorr...

Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

. I'am sorry if this analysis hurt some one, it's not my intention. metta Your "analysis" is simply ignorant. It's true. In other way i would not speak about it and would be free from Samsara. But if one of us is ignorant (me), the other (you) is free from ignorance, Samsara, a fully enlightened be...

Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

Mahayana say that there is no suffering, no cause, no cessation, and no way - No, it does not. Maybe some zen/chan pracitioners are agree with suffering, cause, cessation and the way, but as i know zen it's non-gradual teaching, so there is no 4-th Noble Truth, there is no Eightfold Noble Path. As ...

As i know Hitler has 32% of voices. Also, such kind of wars arise because of self-sufficiency of economy, because of refutation of mondialisations and commertial/diplomatic/cultural exchengings with neighbours. Why? Because when there is economy which is based upon self-sufficiency/ego/self/division...

Re: Do you agree with the Dalai Lama?

I dont think that vajrayana and Dalai Lama are buddhism. If I wrote that I would be banned, for making a ridiculous and unsubstantiated remark. I might secretly believe that you are a lobster, but I wouldn't post it on the world wide web. My opinion is based on: Mahayana say that there is no suffer...

Re: Are monastics allowed to make lay people kill plants?

Only when there is 4 conditions there is killing kamma:

1. desire of killing
2. determination of means to kill (weapon etc)
3. action of killing
4. death

Re: What kind of Patimokkha offenses do not produce bad karm

Offence it self is a bad kamma (action), because offence make you weaker, not stronger. Fruit of such bad kamma is abandoning of practice of liberation from suffering.

There is death when there is no conditions to life, it's all that a want to say.
