Mañana

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

Mañana

We have "Hinayana" or Lesser Vehicle.

We have "Mahayana" of Greater Vehicle.

We have "Vajrayana" or Adamantine Vehicle.

How about "Mañana" or the Procrastinator's Vehicle?

Hmm, why not? When you're a little bit more advanced, you can do the secret dances/energy exercises of Salsayana. Then when you want to be a true Mahasiddha, you can move up to Tequilayana.

You could even make up a little song (this alternates between a male soloist singing the question and the chorus singing the reply).

Jñana?
...MAÑANA!

Prajna?
...MAÑANA!

Padmasana?
...MAÑANA!

Laa La laaaaaa!

Hmmmmmmmmm ....

"Tequillayana: The Tequilla Drinker's Path To Buddhahood and Excess"! Maybe?

I suppose then we could have the Marijuanayana. I suppose if Brad Warner can bring a Punk Rock sensibility to the Dharma why not Dharma for Stoners? Believe it or not there's a domestic strain of Pot named "Buddha". I understand it's very good.

On second thought, maybe not. I'm dead-set against mixing pot with meditation practice. It gets way too wierd. Of course being a Stoner doesn't mean your stoned all the time, either.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be the Mañanayana?

aww, that's pretty cool, though one cat seems to have a slight cleanliness obession, he manages to let go of it in the end. As for responding to this thread... I'll do it tomorrow, now where's that bottle of Don Julio? :tongue:
