We may find a compromise as to vajrayana but I will not negotiate Mahayana with you.


Kind regards

I dont care.


But what's your point then?

Kind regards

I was making a suggestion for Rael.
That was my point. I couldnt possibly care less what you think of it or what you think of anything for that matter.

I would not suggest Theravada to him. Better to start with Mahayana.

Kind regards

If you have a hard time parsing parable from literal representation then Mahayana is most definitely not for you.
Both you and Tmingyur would most likely be much more comfortable in a Theravada setting.
My suggestion would be for you both to fully explore that realm and leave the Mahayana/Vajrayana to others.


I'm into Vajrayana and completion stage practices....

my early introduction to Meditation was TM and yoga...
Lobsang Rampa's books were my intro to Buddhism and then the shambahla books of the early 70's...

then onto the Gakkai...lol...where i found my ability to heal with mantra chanting...

Then i found Tibetan Buddhism...

I adore it....

the Tulku i study under doesn't approve of knocking the Mahayana at all....but questioning it is ok....

i think honesty is the best policy when saying someone is a Buddha or these works are those of the Buddha and such...

modern day sciences are helping debunk a lot of bullshit....

as per your final suggestion;
though you are entitled to your opinion...it sucks....it shows a low level anger towards the belief systems you are trying to embrace as factual.....you make for an easy Muzjiks to see through...

we all are in this together...views are to be celebrated...questions adored....

Well yes. But my suggestion is indirectly addressed to Rael ... whether you care or not does not matter.

kind regards
