I can't mix metaphors, I don't think. I'm not very clever.
I just mean that empathy is good.

I think if we're paying attention, many lenses can probably be recognized.

Re: The Bodhisattva Ideal in Theravada

The real problem is when we don't even see what lens we're looking at it through. It's like cultural stuff, we assume that our own cultural world view is the default one, that everyone knows. Only when we see other cultures do we even realize the depth of our own. Otherwise we think that we are all...

Re: The Bodhisattva Ideal in Theravada

Or you could stay here and answer questions, and put your ideas up for examination. That's what I have been doing, and it was apparently "repeated failure to respect the focus of this forum".

Re: tibetan buddhism rocks!

Bhante wrote:The Buddha's advice in the Mahāparinibbāna Sutta (IIRC) if others speak what is not Dhamma is to neither praise, nor to criticise what was wrongly said, but just to teach Dhamma.

Re: Do you (still) visit any Non -Buddhist forae?

I really don't have the time or inclination to visit non-Buddhist forums so I don't know what they're like. Sorry to hear about...

Is it too glib if I say it's ignorance that clings?
