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

I really need to apologise to you for the post I made regarding your "My rant on Hui Neng's poem" original posting. It was a stupid thing for me to do.
I was wrong in cutting loose like that and I should have known better. In fact I did know better, but I let my self-control get away from me for a bit there.
We all have our good days and bad days and I was having a very bad day when I wrote that post.
That's not an excuse, it's just what happened then.
I'm glad you posted back and made me realise what an idiot I was to do that
I rather made a fool of myself that time, didn't I?
Let's hope I can learn something from my mistakes,
:mrgreen:
Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?

One poem seems to be about clinging to ideas of purity and aversion and the other about seeing things the way they are. Except for some common terms they dont seem to me to have much to do with each other.
