The present day buddhists in Asian countries who spread monks robes around dagobas and throw millions of flowers around dagobas , throw tons of rice offered as budda pooja and make budda statues with large monetary collections , are destined to hell or naraka for misinterpretation of buddha darma. There had been christians such as mother Teresa and certain rev. Fathers who have developed mettha or brahma vihara .SarathW wrote: ↑Fri Jul 12, 2019 4:42 amWhat is the destination of the people who get Buddha's teachings wrong?
For instance some think self view is just a strategy .
Others think Nibbana is a real place or arahants do not exist after death.
Basically the question is what is the destination for people with wrong view?
What about the people who misinterpret Anatta?
Though they have not been nominal Buddhists they have developed the kusal citta indicated by lord budda.
Anatta are those who are not sakkaya ditthi while we can find many who help othèrs selflessly.
Therefore we cannot identify and discuss with present characters the meaning of anatta as sn 22.59 anatta lakkana sutta indicates that one who is selfless do not perceive or determines do not work for self benefits.
Bikkus feeling perception determination are not self.
Bikkus consciousness is not self. Were consciouness is self then this consciousnes would not lead to affliction.
Many who live in buddhist cultures learn to absorb anatta
while those who live with other cultures find it hard to do so.
