Jodo-E

Postby rory » Sun Dec 09, 2012 6:09 am

Today is Jodo-E the celebration of Shakyamuni's attaining Enlightenment; but as followers of the Lotus Sutra we should focus on Shakyamuni as the Eternal Buddha, he was always Enlightened and always will be, the human form is just an upaya. Shaka Butsu is at Eagle Peak discussing the sutra, when we practice enough and attain we'll hear it too....

The gist of these passages is that the Buddha's practice as the cause and His virtue as the effect are altogether contained in the five characters of "Myo-ho ren-ge kyo". If we uphold the five characters, the merits of those cause and effect are naturally transferred to us. (NOPPA D2, P146)

I honored Buddha by getting a christmas tree.

See their morals, their code, its a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They are only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you when the chips are down, these...civilized people...they'l EAT each other. see I'm not a monster, I'm just ahead of the curve".-The Joker.

In SGI and Shoshu they put evergreens on each side of the Gohonzon to represent eternity of life. Just get another one and flank the Gohonzon with them and BLAM!

Instant Holiday crossover. :thumbsup:

Crass? Like a Jedi... :jedi:

I am SO doing that...also Indians often deck their shrines with "Christmas" lights and other gay apparel.
