If person dies, does the world die?
How did you conclude that? The world doesn't stop where somebody wants it, it doesn't stop if he dies.
One is responsible for oneself, and this cannot be exaggerated.
And this responsibility is karma based, or supernatural intervention into karma? You said that will and karma cannot be separated, and I agree. But do you know what are the consequences of such a statement? Complete causality. If there is complete causality, what do you mean by saying that "one is responsible for oneself"?
As for the tradition and non-action... one has to be rather careful when without any understanding or realization put such high air in place which is completely inapporpriate.. many masters including certain Sheng Yen just warned against falling into onesided understanding of emptiness since one is immediately an outsider and nihilist... it is same for Japanese masters who strongly opposed such view. As for the great forefathers of the lineage there are some teachings, but those are too high standards for mortals to understand or discuss without realization. Anyway if they - I mean forefathers - directly show buddhanature, then with all its qualities.
I am asking about this onesided understanding of emptiness. What are the characteristics of a person grasping emptiness wrongly? Warnings are not the answer. I presented a logical consequences of a view that action does not matter, and it presented unexpected qualities. I think that the "wrong grasp of emptiness" is used too hastily, without giving it a thought. Especially on forum it is used as a form of insult, which is supposed to show misunderstanding of Dharma. But can you defend it?
If we pick up any texts of great masteres of rinzai or soto monasteries they are pretty much concerned with law of karma, and ethics, bodhichitta and so on.
We can take Rinzai himself. Shall we?
Say what you think about me here.
