Supermonk - A Buddhist Comic

Postby Astus » Thu May 19, 2011 9:54 am

The writer was inspired by Ajahn Brahm's advice of creating a Buddhist hero who doesn't beat up people but turns them to the right path.
Just click on the pictures and enjoy: LINK.
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

I would endure it for myriad lifetimes
As your companion in practice"

"There is no supermonk here"

".........Oh my god that was deep"

We are attracted by wealth, pleasures, good looks, political advancement and various other welcoming and enticing prospects: we are repelled by exertion, death, pain, disgrace and limited means. It follows that we need to train ourselves not to crave for the former and not to be afraid of the latter. Let us fight the battle the other way round—retreat from the things that attract us and rouse ourselves to meet the things that actually attack us.
