The Illustrious and Praiseworthy Buddhadasa

Post by phillyy » Sat Jun 22, 2019 6:24 pm

I just wanted to recommend someone here named Buddhadasa.

Please ignore all of the negative reviews and read strictly the positive reviews.


Thank you.

Buddhadasa was the greatest modern expositor of Dhamma/Nature/God/Evolution or whatever you want to call "it."

I agree my dear friend, and some of that comes from a misunderstanding due to our Western Patriarchy.

I feel that the words of Buddhadasa should speak for themselves without any interpretors.

I feel that the words of Buddhadasa can speak for themselves - we inherit many subconscious biases due to upbringing.

I think people misinterpret Buddhadasa because they hear words that are not his, instead of directly knowing his words from his own books.

I don't know if you agree with me or not.

I have other quotes if you don't like that one.

For example, Buddhadasa taught us that nature is one with dhamma, and he teaches us that dhamma is one with a holistic, spiritual system.

Tell me if you like this.

Buddhadasa teaches us that we were one with nature and in nature every one was equal before evil, sinful individuals created granaries.

According to Buddhadas man is here to obey God and not sin.

This means not having too much food to eat.

According to Buddhadasa we were free and happy in nature before the stockpiling of grain, which is man's original sin.

We must live only on what our bellies can take in one sitting.

According to Buddhadasa we cannot store grain for "snacks" and only sinful activities.

This is the way of the spirtual life

Is the logic not impeccable? The stomach is the primary organ in our bodies, is it not? And we humans do not have a pouch like kuala bears - we are not meant to store snacks for later, this is sinful, according to Buddhadasa.

By not giving in to selfishness and storing food, we can reach nibbana in this very life time.

Buddhadasa wants us to be equals and return to a state of nature, where we were one with the dhamma, with GOD, in a state like nibbana.

According to Buddhadas Man lived in a Garden of Eden before the sins of grain stockpiling began.

According to Buddhadasa - all religions are ONE - they all teach us to live without selfishness - without stockpiling grains and other cereals and pseudocereals and selfish, delicious snacks.

If we followed religion - all problems on earth would disapear!

The main issue of understanding Buddhadasa is simple - too few people have read Buddhadasa to know what he taught, If people all acted as one in a religiouly fervent way, the world would be a paradise on earth.
