If you're going to keep posting Youtubes with aggrevatin' rhythm, I'm going to have to start linking some Grateful Dead.

If everyone's posting YouTube videos, here's my favourite track for preparing for the bardo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZWmYEUoweg

"Do not block your six senses; delight in them with joy and ease.
All that you take pleasure in will strengthen the awakened state.
With such a confidence, empowered by the regal state of natural mind,
The training now is simply this: lets your six senses be at ease and free." - Princess Parani

It's not very relaxing.
HHDL: "My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."

OK, you young whipper snappers, feast on this.
Ingest your drug of choice (or not), clamp on the headphones and TURN IT UP LOUD!

Check out the lyrics...
Take a trip to the center of your mind...
Sacrifice of your own ego...let it go...

LOL, I quoted you the Buddha's exact words (well, English translation, anyway). You got quiet. Now you're back to expounding your own interpretation and pointing fingers at someone you don't even know (me).

quick recap of where we left off...

padma norbu wrote:
Food_Eatah wrote:Karma is a universal force. Greed is greed, "cultural excuses" is just another delusion. You make it sound like 2500 years ago people in India doesn't crave alot of sex with different women.

But hey, I left all that punk rock, metal, hardcore, indie, hiphop crap behind me now. Musicians did not offer me peace and spiritual growth. Buddha's teachings did. Pop culture is just another sort of cocaine one should be more mindful about.


What is "sexual misconduct" (kamesu micchacara)? Here are two definitions in the Buddha's own words.

"One conducts oneself wrongly in matters of sex; one has intercourse with those under the protection of father, mother, brother, sister, relatives or clan, or of their religious community; or with those promised to someone else, protected by law, and even with those betrothed with a garland" (Book of Tens, Anguttara Nikaya, X, 206).

"Abandoning sexual misconduct, one abstains from sexual misconduct; he does not have intercourse with women who are protected by their mother, father, mother and father, brother, sister, or relatives, who have a husband, who are protected by law, or with those already engaged" (See Bhikkhu Bodhi translation, In the Buddha's Words, p. 159, based on MN41; Saleyyaka Sutra; I 286-90).

Sexual misconduct or "wrong sensual indulgence" is karmically harmful behavior. On account of karma it will result in suffering and unsatisfactoriness now and/or in the future.

Kama [not to be confused with karma] denotes pleasure associated with the senses, particularly sexual pleasure -- as in the legendary Sanskrit classic, the Kama Sutra. Sensual misconduct is wrongdoing for the sake of satisfying sensual desire. This harm may be to oneself or others. For example, there can be harm by overindulgence, such as gluttony/obesity or alcoholic intoxication. This is because craving arises, and one habitually tries to satisfy it in an ultimately unsatisfactory manner.

Buddha did not teach that householders should abstain from sex, nor did he proclaim that they should engage in sex only in the context of marriage.

I guess I should link this just so I don't pretend I wrote it myself. http://wisdomquarterly.blogspot.com/200 ... fined.html

Haha trip out :cheers:
The nonexistence of the transcendence of suffering
is what the protector of the world has taught as the transcendence
of suffering.
Knots tied on space
are untied by space itself.

May I never be seperated from perfect masters in all lives,
and delightfully experiencing the magnificent dharma,
completing all qualities of the stages of the paths
may I quickly attain the state of Vajradhara

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I missed this post before. I love these guys. Lots of great mostly forgotten psyche bands from the 60s and 70s. It's a darn shame.
