Hua Hu Jing

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

Hua Hu Jing

Postby LastLegend » Sat Dec 28, 2013 8:46 am

I confess that there is nothing to teach: no religion, no science, no body of information which will lead your mind back to the Tao. Today I speak in this fashion, tomorrow in another, but always the Integral Way is beyond words and beyond mind. Simply be aware of the oneness of things.

Thanks Last! ... wonderful!

Do you imagine the universe is agitated? Go into the desert at night
and took out at the stars. This practice should answer the question.
The superior person settles her mind as the universe settles the stars
in the sky. By connecting her mind with the subtle origin, she calms it.
Once calmed, it naturally expands, and ultimately her mind becomes
as vast and immeasurable as the night sky.

6
The Tao gives rise to all forms, yet it has no form of its own. If you
attempt to fix a picture of it in your mind, you will lose it. This is like
pinning a butterfly: the husk is captured, but the flying is lost. Why
not be content with simply experiencing it?

81
With all this talking, what has been said? The subtle truth can be
pointed at with words, but it can’t be contained by them. Take time to
listen to what is said without words, to obey the law too subtle to be
written, to worship the unnameable and to embrace the unformed.
Love your life. Trust the Tao. Make love with the invisible subtle origin
of the universe, and you will give yourself everything you need. You
won’t have to hide away forever in spiritual retreats. You can be a
gentle, contemplative hermit right here in the middle of everything,
utterly unaffected, thoroughly sustained and rewarded by your integral
practices. Encouraging others, giving freely to all, awakening and
purifying the world with each movement and action, you’ll ascend to
the divine realm in broad daylight. The breath of the Tao speaks, and
those who are in harmony with it hear quite clearly.

Classic Daojia apocrypha as an entire ripoff of Buddhist sutra, 't will may you laugh, cringe and cry (though maybe not in that order). Even the Daojia people had to agree that they were entirely over the top on this one.

The version in the link isn't the Hua Hu Jing as far as I can see from a brief look over. The start at least is totally different. The text itself begins from the Supreme Master entering into the womb of ... Maya (ie. the mother of Siddartha Gautama)...

Seriously? I would rather you read the Dao De Jing and Zhuang Zi and so many other proper Daoist works than this shadowy one any day.... See here

I always knew there's a Gnostic somewhere in you....

Since we are roughly in the territory of taoism, can someone put the I Ching in perspective? :popcorn:

Why would anyone do that on a forum called Open Dharma,,on a website clearly identifying itself as a Mahayana and Vajrayana forum ?

Does it ever occur to anyone else that to frequent a clearly marked Buddhist forum with some kind of Universalist agenda might just be bad manners ?

Allow me to translate:

1. My bad
A way of admitting a mistake, and apologizing for that mistake, without actually apologizing. The best definition I ever read of this, now paraphrased:

"I did something bad, and I recognize that I did something bad, but there is nothing that can be done for it now, and there is technically no reason to apologize for that error, so let's just assume that I won't do it again, get over it, and move on with our lives."

Ruder than apologizing, but with the same meaning: a flippant apology.
"You just spilled your beer on my term paper!!"
"Er... my bad."

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=my%20bad


1. dawg
1. Slang for "my close acquaintance of an African-American ethnic background"

2. Word to be used in place of a name, or other personal noun or pronoun to be used in place of a name.

3. Another meaningless piece of that hideous massacre of the English language they call ebonics.
1. Wuddup dawg?
How are you doing my close acquaintance of an African-American ethnic background?

2. Wuddup dawg? Wuddup antwoineeshaye?

3. They're too painful to list.

Thank you for the explanation
Last Legend . However I am no nearer to understanding what you are attempting to communicate. which I thought was the point of the forum, rather than to indicate membership of an incrowd or subset.
