I think this is why you need to embrace all vehicles of Buddhism for their own strengths, and take from them all the tools that pertain to your own quest for realization.

Exactly.  :thumbup:

I believe both Theravada and Mahayana are equally far removed from the Buddha's original teaching. Ultimately, all the existing traditions are different interpretations of the Pali, and we should work with all of them, in order to come up with our own.

interesting quote. here is another....

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in the cosmic religion for the future: It trancends a personal God, avoids dogma and theology; it covers both the natural and the spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity."
?Albert Einstein

Where is Buddha now ?




hey knuckle,
you are one smart cookie!

peek a boo

yes - (t)here is the church and that whole infrastructure, and the social milieu that it floats on (like this board & this thread even), and someplace in there - you need to be a smart cookie, there is the buddha and the path, but everywhere else too.

the church bazarr carnival is intoxicating

very consistent posting mr. knuckle

Right! That is my interpretation of this as well. There is no one right way to go about this...there are thousands!

So the Buddha is gone while Christ is still around, but this whole retreating into the heavens thing isn't that user friendly either. I mean, if the second coming happens tomorrow, it's still two thousand years too late, right? I bet even Maitreya will make it before Christ.

Yeah, the man J.C. is a wee bit late. I would welcome either one! They are both cool in my book.
