Externalists

Postby Thug4lyfe » Sun Dec 04, 2011 8:54 am

From browsing and trolling this forum it seems I have been very wrong with my practice!

I guess Buddhism should really be about attachment to external influences and increasing "revolutionary anger" to reach Nirvana!

Thanks for the schooling!

In case you didn't know FE, there are two types of truth and two types of bodhicitta: relative and ultimate.

Thanks?...the pleasure is mine!
Start identifying with that which knows and stop identifying with the known.

What you must do is to rest in the spaciousness
Of the equality of appearance emptiness.

If what you've been doing is trolling, you're not doing a very good job of it.

Cool story bro, tell it again.
