That's great. A lot of them seem like very nice people. It's also fortunate for them to be in contact with a Buddhist like you! :)
Thanks

Re: 'What are you saying'?

Teachers are important as they can teach in today's language. I have myself benefited from numerous teachers in various ways. My point is, however, that teachers are not wizards or fairies to magically transform people into buddhas. They can be great examples and explain things lucidly. On the othe...

Re: Tolerance for other religions

Me either. But I have my own experience. People who have a vision of their deity as being wrathful and punishing and angry, well, they tend to have issues. They tend to dislike a lot of people. People who have a vision of their deity as an embodiment of love, are, well, generally loving people. I d...

Re: the psychedelic community: pros and cons

I've never personally been involved with the psychedelic community, but I have been reading articles about them and been watching videos about them for some time (mainly about Terrence McKenna and Alex Grey). Many other threads have discussed drug use, but drug use is only one part of the psychedel...

Yeah, but also I've noticed aggression as a main problem in such cases, especially hidden aggression, it is still there and still corrupting and worsing karma. not addressing aggression is too very karmic, even in other people.

Re: in control

I could make one see, I could make one talk again but bringing inner peace bringing sanity where there isn't bringing it back is difficult. And I am horrified.

in control

I desperately want to put things into control. That is what I like, I hold things into great control, sometimes in an a political, sometimes inhuman or superhuman way, or at least it looks like it now when I lost that control. Losing control is not good and I desperately try to gain it back, that on...

Messiah is relevant to Buddha notion in Buddhism. We should respect religious hierarchies that are pretty clear in both religious, Messiah and Buddha. I hope that goes into your mind.

Type of lifestyle

Obviously living together with a saint in a village does not help when every one else is drunkie and listens to Chalga music day and night. Like now. Law does stop this? The major is into it too. Not only but he ironises me as I could hear from the street for not being into this stuff. So they party...

Re: Is is possible to be Buddhist and Hindu?

This topic is great since I practice something very similar to it. I am mainly Buddhist but I have deeply rooted Hindu believes together with Vishnu, etc. Plus the book Living Buddha Living Christ is very meaningful to me. I think it is for many people. I think as a Buddhist I accept the existence o...

If it will make you feel better we only do turbofolk music recently here :D and even it is so bad that the new generation don't like it and prefers to listen to turbofolk "classics" and old hits.
