Re: What is an Arahant?

Point is, It doesn't matter what you call it. The Buddha was the Great doctor. Able to cure all diseases of both body and mind. He didn't create true dhamma. He preserved it (Vishnu) I've met christians that live nobler lives than some buddhists I've encountered. Who would you say is closer to the g...

Re: What is an Arahant?

Re: Was the Buddha an avatar of lord vishnu?

You appear to have an affinity for Bhikkhus Yuttadhammo and Samahita and believe they are arahants. https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=33984#p506504 What do they about Buddha being an avatar of Vishnu? No I don't "believe" they are Arahants I know they are. Vishnu is is alpha and omega th...

I don't know of any
I just listed 2. If you yourself aren't an arahant then you cannot discern other arahants. Again you'd be wise heed thier council and follow them

Re: Was the Buddha an avatar of lord vishnu?

Well, if something specific can be anything, then everything means nothing. Which reminds me, I forgot to add the taoists to the list of hijackers as well. I myself am no longer "buddhist" I just live and love my life. I fulfill my dharma on a day to day basis without even trying to do so. I don't ...

I myself am no longer "buddhist" I just live and love my life. I fulfill my dharma on a day to day basis without even trying to do so. I don't want to be a "Buddhist" again either its just another identity which is subject to change and dissatisfaction. Being a buddhist a hindu or a christian signif...
