Re: Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

The answer is that I don't. Why do you think that I think that you are confident and lacking condemnation? Is it because I asked you if "you think that you are 'definitively static?'" Earlier, you said that "Since none of you are definitively static I don't assume this perspective is pervasive" wit...

Re: Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

I think its hasty to assert what is or is not Sakyamuni's enlightenment- to do so is to grasp more conditionality. These concepts you so strongly assert are the finger pointing at the moon, not the moon itself. It is not grasping if it is proofed from the LS. it is not improper to contemplate funct...

Ah, so everyone here according to you? No one? Just you? I am not filling the envelope of who thin[k]s this way or that way. You put names to it.

Re: Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

Stone's arguments are meaningless. It can be proofed from the Lotus regardless of translation and distilled from Shakyamuni's behavior as a human being. Shakyamuni did not posit teachings beyond the grasp of others (in his presence) but rather fashioned them accordingly so they would thrive in thos...

Re: Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

Ah, so everyone here according to you? No one? Do you think that you are "definitively static?" Do you think that you are above the "simple tenant" of impermanence? No I simply don't see people's thoughts as defining their being or even their understanding because these things are not permanently f...

Ah, so everyone here according to you? No one? Just you? I am not filling the envelope of who things this way or that way. You put names to it.

Re: Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

Nagarjuna's tetralemma in contrast to Nichiren's interpretation of Tendai 3 Truths

In order to argue this concept appropriately it would be best to understand that the unification of the three truths (mutual possession) is the baseline for consideration. Answer: It is a commonly accepted assertion among the scholars of our times that the Thus Come One invariably preached his teach...

Re: Response to PadmaVonSamba

Hi tkp, thanks for making the time to respond. I will try to repeat back to you what I think you're saying, this is to see if I understand the latest post. n't In the context of NIchiren's propagation of the Lotus Sutra? No, not exactly. Not to say that within the context of the TB teachings they a...

Re: Response to PadmaVonSamba

So, you are agreeing with what Malcolm wrote? Rereading this. Malcolm are you denying Lord Nargajuna Concept of Sunyata and replacing it with some other teaching. Cause correct me if I’m wrong but the middle way is saying it’s both existence and non existence. One needs to understand the view corre...

Re: Response to PadmaVonSamba

No-self and not-self are an integral attribute of phenomena, including human beings. So is self or Atman. Although humans demonstrate temporality and non-substantiality, they also possess the truth of the Middle Way (Tientai) which means that the true nature of phenomena is that they are neither no...

Re: Response to PadmaVonSamba

The existence between birth and death is just that, the development of one's life is just that. If the only connection between child and adult has no meaning mother and father are meaningless as are the benefit of being born human, lineages and indigenous practices as well. They are not meaningless...

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

The Mutual Possession of the Ten Worlds demonstrates that the World of Anger exists in the World of Buddha. The Anger of Buddhahood or Bodhisattvahood is a very real aspect of being, especially when seeing the teachings destroyed. One may call it righteous anger. Yet that rudimentary perspective fa...

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

Nichiren discusses intellect and does not equate this intellect or that intellect with superiority. Rather this vehicle will manifest as each intellect requires. This accords to the boundless equanimity of Shakyamuni's enlightenment. Being attached to one's own lack or abundance of intellect or bias...

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

Problem that arises is how one interprets the idea of what Nichiren Shonin was conveying. What and where is his anger directed at. I say anger cause that’s the tone of the interpretation So like is it Buddhism He attacking and calling it mixing. How would Nichiren Shonin detach himself from Buddhis...
