Ayya Khema & Yogachara

Post by CedarTree » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:50 pm

Some years back I read quite a bit from her in a short period.

Now after studying some Yogachara the parallels are pretty clear. Maybe beyond clear... Lol

Any history on her studying this school or some history with it?

Interesting as I never noticed that (but I believe you!) What did you have in mind ?
"People often get too quick to say 'there's no self. There's no self...no self...no self.' There is self, there is focal point, its not yours. That's what not self is."

Ninoslav Ñāṇamoli
Senses and the Thought-1, 42:53

"Those who create constructs about the Buddha,
Who is beyond construction and without exhaustion,
Are thereby damaged by their constructs;
They fail to see the Thus-Gone.

That which is the nature of the Thus-Gone
Is also the nature of this world.
There is no nature of the Thus-Gone.
There is no nature of the world."

Nagarjuna
MMK XXII.15-16
