Re: Any explanation

This is not pointed at anyone but might serve as a helpful reminder that the LS represents the mind of the buddha which accordingly is not subject to cognitive dissonance so proper interpretation will not evoke it as a response. Discussions within that context (i.e. those not under the influence of ...

Re: Does the String theory invalidate the Madhyamaka?

According to the Madhyamaka long is long, because there is the short. The size of big or small is always relative to the size of another object. According to the String theory there comes a limit to how small we can get, there seems to be an absolute size which is called Planck length. It also seem...

Re: It's very hard living with demon attacks.

I find offering fine incense is powerful when experiencing such things. Olfactory influences are very potent in regards to the mind. :anjali: Also since it has been posted here prior and you are practitioner of Tibetan tradition I found the following to be quite soothing/cleansing. https://www.youtu...

Re: Tathagatagarbha

Since the Lotus Sutra defines our body as the Dharma body of a Thus Come One, our mind as the reward body of a Thus Come One, and our actions as the manifested body of a Thus Come One, all who uphold and believe in even a single phrase or verse of this sutra will be endowed with the benefits of the...

Re: Tathagatagarbha

If one doubts the strength of the Buddha when he says, “I am the only person who can rescue and protect others”; if one is suspicious of the rope held out by the Lotus Sutra when its teachings declare that one can “gain entrance through faith alone”;19 if one fails to chant the Mystic Law which gua...

Thank you Dan.

I agree that the observation and application can be applied without prejudice. Meido does a wonderful (and interesting) job explaining.

Re: Tathagatagarbha

But it is truly difficult to put this sutra, the Lotus, into practice. If there p.130is some essential point to be observed, could you explain it to me?” The sage replied: “I can tell that your aspiration for the way is very earnest and sincere. The essential thing the Buddhas needed in order to at...

Re: Some various translations of some seminal passages

The following is from your sect. Chanting Daimoku is for getting the spiritual connection between the Eternal Buddha Sakyamuni and us. The difference of each school's traditional doctrine.

Re: Who or what is the Eternal Buddha?

p.62When you look at those of superior capacity, do not disparage yourself. The Buddha’s true intention was that no one, even those of inferior capacity, be denied enlightenment. Conversely, when you compare yourself with persons of inferior capacity, do not be arrogant and overproud. Even persons ...

Re: is Kempon Hokke responsible for Buddha of Kuon Ganjo concept ?

I believe the point is the three bodies never had a beginning or an end in the first place. The notion that they did is simply provisional. This is not to say existence as we are experiencing it is in and of itself eternal. Rather it is not independent but part of the chain that is the continuity of...

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

I think the underlying message is this. Our own lives are in and of themselves provisional. All teachings based on the provisional are ephemeral by nature as the provisional itself is ephemeral. This provision is part of the larger phenomenon of that represents all sentient life. Shakyamuni's enligh...
