This is not such a bad thing if you want be the Buddha in this life itself.

One thing that I thing is important to mention and to emphasize is that the actual path and practice of buddhism is far more experiential than conceptual.

:heart: Thank you, this helped me. I was lost in my own concept. :smile:


May you be happy.
May you be well.
May you be free from all suffering.

:anjali: As the title says, what are a monastics thoughts of the path of the bodisattva? :anjali:



Before you take the Bodhisattva Vow: Consider this!


"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

:anjali: Thank you. I watched this. But it's some kind of process going in in in my mind. In my mind nibbana and enlightment are somehow connected,dependent on each other. How could they not be? And i can't seem to let go of that experience. And when I look around all I see is peoples concepts of the division between the "two experiences" and it makes me confused.. :anjali:

But I Guess it's only a natural thing that both diverse concepts of mind and an experience of oneness would arise at the same time.. it actually is not a problem either.. that is just the way we human beings are
