Re: Knower: Self and non-self?

It’s rather direct contemplation...to know how such appearance comes about. Sixth Patriarch said originally there is no thing...whatever appearance rationalized to not be self doesn’t mean we are not deluded in dreams at night. I think this points to a state of meditative awareness that does not ha...

Anything you can refer to as an object is thus an object of awareness, rather than the awareness itself.

Re: Perception

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo said: just stick with that which knows and not with the known.

But the conceptual mind could see " that which knows" as being an object (by a knowing thought). That which knows is not a knowing thought.

Re: What does Buddhism say about gender?

This tread is about gender. What Buddhism say about? Respect all for not to fall into judgements which are our own grasping/shortcomings?

Re: What does Buddhism say about gender?

If it’s all an illusion how can I say I’m happy about something when I know it’s not ultimately real. Obviously, because many things probably already do make you happy. ...and they aren’t “real”. :jumping: The happiness is still “real”. Have you ever had a really nice dream, and then when you woke ...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

So far, this discussion seems to be focused on the incoming mail box rather than the outgoing mail box. In other words, people are more concerned with what goes into the stomach rather than what the food will result in after you’ve eaten it. Perhaps it’s important to look at that. If you are sustai...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

Once when I was a little kid me and my mom visited a place where they had a lot of pigs. I felt like they were my favorite animals and that I really Loved them a lot. Then one day we walked by that place and they had all disappeared. I asked my mom where they went but she wouldn’t tell me. I love a...

Re: Dealing with setbacks and obstacles

I'm not able to finish some important works as they keep getting delayed repeatedly due to some or other reason, and when I make a little progress very soon obstacles occur. It's like taking one step ahead and being forced to move back many steps. Constant setbacks are making me stressed, upset and...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

Vegetarianism was practiced in ancient Rome and Greece, atleast by some individuals, the philosopher Plutarkhos wrote a pamphlet about eating, or rather not eating, meat: "Plutarch (46 – AD 120), seeking to describe virtue in everyday life looks into eating meat and vegetarianism in a text known as...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

Thanks Aemilius. I think we are destroying our earth, ours own home by our selfish action. The environment is our responsibility. Regarding animals, forcing them to give birth in great amount is not only causing a lot of suffering but is as well bringing the world out of harmony ( see as well clima...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is encouraging his followers around the globe to adopt a vegetarian diet in an effort to alleviate suffering on World Animal Day, which took place this past Sunday, October 4th. In a recorded message, the Buddhist leader said, "It is very useful to promote vegetaria...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

And here we discuss about diets. That is luxury, indeed. The intention not to cause harm has nothing specifically to do with diet. In carelessness for our environment and all what lives in it, there is no directly intention to harm. We can blindly support mass production or Factory Farming, without...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

Not to mention the fact that no one is out there walking around the slums of Calcutta handing out pamphlets telling people to eat less meat. In Calcutta I took an abandonned child on my arm, its weight was like paper, it was sleeping on a bed of rotten flowers, not usefull anymore for the cremation...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

It is true that vegan, vegetarian is luxury way of living in richer countries. I find comments referring to that quite interesting because how many people here on this board live in the slums of Calcutta or Katmandou? I'm going to guess none. Meanwhile, they type out their responses on their $1,000...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

It is true that vegan, vegetarian is luxury way of living in richer countries. Is this way of living the result of realizing the massa production of "meat on paws", causing a sad experience to animals, torture, deseases by wrong nutrition and so let them have a very suffering life to serve us of mea...

Re: Great Vegan Debate

While a vegan/vegetarian diet is better for all kinds of reasons, it will be easier for a meat eater who practices non-attachment to attain realization than it will be for a vegan who is obsessed with everything that goes in his mouth. Yes Right. this is another extreme. And for some countries it i...

Beautiful Sunrise. Also nice then to can share our fresh vegetables with those lacking. :anjali: There are many, many fields full of soy, rice, potatoes, corn and more, all to feed animals, their lives only worth to keep the meat production going on. Not to blame anyone, because when we want change,...
