Re: Hello All

Hi. I am here to mostly read and not take part in conversation. Since Mahayana is not my primary tradition arguing with Mahayanists would be rather pointless since neither of us have anything to prove to one another. Bit like a soccer and rugby player dropping in on a field hockey match (a rugby pl...

Re: Hello All

Hi Everyone, I am from India. For some years I have been a participant in the sister sites DhammaWheel and DharmaPaths. I believe in Theravada Buddhism and also Hinduism (I do not see them as competing but as complimentary philosophies). I was born a Hindu (not exactly a mainstream Hindu but sort o...

Re: Realisation and its down side?

Hi, Has anyone experienced a negative outcome after meditating on Impermanence? I have been experiencing a palpable dread and sense of futility as a result. I guess the realisation is there, but n0ow it seems to have sapped some of the enjoyment and pleasure I would normally have experienced from t...

Re: Thich Nhat Hanh

What is exactly the the significance of Thich Nhat Hanh from the Zen Buddhist point of view? Many of his books have been translated into Finnish, my native language. What is his standing? I'm not questioning his authenticity as a teacher but he seems to be all over the place. So, if I want to learn...

Re: New Zen Forum invitation

But all welcome.

Re: New Zen Forum invitation

The warning that zenone could follow a familiar and undesirable trajectory, of course. And of course the warning expresses something about my intents and values, which are appenently shared to some degree by at least one other. Keith seems to find ZFI and/or TreeLeaf a pessimistic outcome. Ok but t...

boda wrote: Fri Jan 26, 2018 6:48 pm But you have to admit that online Zen forums have a rather ragged history, so, a few words of warning seem warranted.
What warning, one either participates on the forum or not, no need for your interpretations upon perception which says more about you then the actual forum.

Have you seen the new series of Marmite ads?

Re: Seeking enlightenment (satori/bodhi)

as I have understood it - the very act of seeking is an obstacle, a hindrance, a no-no. Am I right or just confused? Seeking on behalf of, or for, a (fabricated) enitity, self or person(ality) yes, seeking as a spontaneous function that arises naturally instead of a thought "I must seek or I must n...

Re: How do I go deeper into Zen practice?

I think you will find that the wisdom was always there. Tathagatagarbha and all that... Prajna is a dharma which means it arises dependendly (on causes and conditions), so its not always "there" Boda said that when one loses ignorance they gain wisdom. You are saying that wisdom is something that i...
