Herbs for remembering dreams

Has anyone successfully used herbs for remembering dreams / lucid dreaming ? I have tried a few times to remember my dreams, but it just seems like it's impossible.. It's like they are completely forgotten the moment I wake up. I have read that you might also have lucid dreams and not remember them,...

Is that so?

The Zen master Hakuin was praised by his neighbors as one living a pure life. A beautiful Japanese girl whose parents owned a food store lived near him. Suddenly, without any warning her parents discovered she was with child. This made her parents angry. She would not confess who the man was, but af...

Re: Antibiotics alleviate symptoms of schizophrenia

It is interesting, I think all drugs have side-effects and are dangerous when misused, antibiotics most certainty have saved alot of lives, but ofc we aren't always prepared for the long term effects, there just needs to be tighter controls on them honestly. I look forward to the day when all mental...

Re: Buddhism and Death

I hope this helps, but most of this is based on my limited understanding, anyways.. Think of it this way, we essentially have a sort of reverse amnesia of who we are, this reverse amnesia takes the form of "representation", or deluded views, about ourselves and everything else. If you remove these d...

Re: What is the concept of "reality" in Buddhism?

The whole idea of viewing everything in life as “not real” or as just mere illusion seemed kind of hard to swallow. At the moment I thought about my parents, my girlfriend, my job and even my 1973 “beat-up” Volkswagen Beetle sitting in my driveway. Was all of this… just an illusion? Our perceptions...

Re: Can dharma alone make life worth living?

Thrasymachus, You don't need to explain to us the ills of the modern world, I think you would be hard-pressed to find someone who disagrees. The difference is in the attitude we take about it, do your views cause you suffering or peace? With views that cause you to be all wound up inside, does it he...

Re: the womb of compassion

Ajahn Brahmavamso has a dhamma talk where he says emptiness is the ultimate form of love, emptiness accepts everything, like the sky accepts the sun and moon, like space accepts everything within it.

love/compassion, same thing.

If the ultimate reality is a formless, meaningless one it is by this exact nature that form, and meaning can exist my search for truth has always taken the form of searching for meaning and I couldn't fathom that meaning only existed because the truth of the matter was that it ultimately doesn't exi...

Re: Near Death Experiences as Evidence of the Pure Land

I am pretty curious about NDE's as well, and their relevance to Dharma. While I have not had a NDE, I did have an experience in my life that is usually only described by people who have had them. I have always been fairly relentless in my questioning of life, and often times get carried away by it, ...
