Re: Thinking

Seems to be not so hard to recognize. That what is a hindrance to dharma can be called "bad". That what closes the curtains of the mind. If it's so easy to recognise ego, and we know it's clouding the mind, why is it so difficult to eradicate? Habit accumulated since beginningless time I imagine. Y...

Re: Thinking

I don't know what tradition you are practicing in lolwlydog, but for me prostrations will bring anything "bad" in me to the surface almost immediately...it gives me a good baseline of what I will be dealing with in mediation generally. That's great, but the question is how do you recognise the "bad...

Re: stopping thought completely

Once i had a job feeding lumber into gang saw. The job was excruciatingly dull and i suffered from the same thoughts going round and round hour after hour. One day I decided I would stop thinking entirely and see if it made the work go faster. It didn't. I just felt sort of dead. I expect this woul...

Re: stopping thought completely

Reminds me of Nagarjunas "judgement-square", point 4:

1. Something is like this
2. Something is not like this
3. Something is either like this or like that
4. Something is neither like this nor like that.

Often it comes out that things are neither/nor.

Re: Template of the Mahayana sutras?

For example, if a reader seems to find only instructions on how to increase their merit, and he or she is uncertain about the rest of the contents, then the text is telling this person something very directly: “You lack the merit required for further teachings, and so you should carry out such-and-...

Then: why compassion is inseperable from emptyness? A self doesn't exist, but the phenomenons exist somehow. They don't come into appearance. Otherwise there's no need for compassion.

Re: existence of objects/form

... One consciousness succeeds another. Is there a "thin devision line" between two succeeding consciousnesses? Or is "thin devision line" just another consciousness? :sage: :smile: It always sounds nice. But the division line is in practical life - between false and less false. Is there another ne...

Re: existence of objects/form

The "truth" is in seeing how cittamatra and madhyamaka are the same. Things only exist to the extent we think or name them, outside of which they have no existence. Madhyamaka is simply a refinement of the idea that there is nothing outside of "mind". Hm, maybe "truth" was the wrong keyword i used....
