I am considering joining the order of the Foaming Monks. At least they know they are nuts.

"In the Land of the Blind, .... the one-eyed man is called crazy".

Think about it, if the meaning doesn't come to you immediately.
But I think it will.

P.S. I really liked that Order of the Foaming Monks thing too the first time I saw it.

Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?

Why is it I feel like I've just been insulted? Surely my dear and cherished dharma brother would never insult me. It must be the impurity of my own mind. Hmmm. I know. I will start a three year retreat immediately! Start sending in those Snickers bars, I'm gonna need a three year supply. And TP, I'll need lots of that too I suppose. Let's see what else, computer, 3-year satellite internet contract, an RV I guess, personal defense system, ammo, water skis, scuba gear, better take the barbecue, hmm hmm hmmm.... Ya this is gonna be great!


Impurity of mind Cat :)

Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

This place is very soothing compared to the newbuddhist forum. Guess maybe avoiding the lame threads, more dope threads will propagate? After all, if we look at debate all the time we are already attached!
