I am sure he was a dedicated practitioner as well as murderer. Very sad example.
I have not murdered anyone and hope that is not part of my karma, however others are not so fortunate. Being murdered is terrible.
We practice sila for a reason.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Please devote your puja to those involved.
May they know peace.
Almost beyond belief. Martial arts at his level normally placates the negative emotive states. Something went very wrong. Does anyone know his teachers? Crazed martial artists not uncommon but even so . . .
We really are in the Kali Yuga . . .
Indeed, very sad, very tragic.
I have never killed anyone either (at least not in this life) although i still have my moments with mosquitos (repellant seems to work best there.) But not to digress....
Being half way around the world, i guess we will never know the circumstances. But I am wondering about the reporting that this "fully represents the wisdom of Chan." I don't know all of Chan teaching by any means but this seems strange to me.
Whatever did or did not happen, may everyone involved be released from the terrible hatred that such a event brought forth.
May such hatred be cooled and transformed into loving kindness for all beings.
And may the Buddhas words be realized that hatred never ceases through hatred but only through love.
