Re: Ten Precepts

And pest companies?? Seriously, one can't live with insects that destroys the integrity of the house (termites) Or with insects crawling all over the body. Disease and other things ... Humans should use their intelligence so we dont create places for insects to breed instead of creating the conditi...

Re: Good afternoon Larry

Concerning the earlier deleted topic/posts, my previous message that I wont reply to PM's is done, it was an "coolbox" move, I will respond to pm's regarding the matter.

Re: Ten Precepts

Fields are equally precious as a million cattle- When tilled to produce carrots and peas and broccoli, numberless lives are lost, lives no less precious than that of farm animals- Just a random slaughterhouse in Belgium, (video) https://m.facebook.com/AnimalRightsNL/videos/743661269743989/?refsrc=h...

Re: Ten Precepts

So the question becomes, does eating meat that is lab grown okay?? Karma wise?? How is it made? Scientists first go about collecting a muscle sample from an animal. Then the technicians collect stem cells from the tissue, multiplying them dramatically and allowing them to differentiate into primiti...

Re: You Are Invited: a LIVE 'SIT & CHAT' with Zen Historian & Dogen Specialist, Dr. Steven Heine

Commentaries, commentaries, spare me the commentaries. We don't need them. We can read too Then don't read them, some ppl might benefit from it. I rarely read commentaries myself, but for instance Sheng Yen's commentary on the sutra of complete enlightenment, song of mind etc etc have always been h...

Re: You Are Invited: a LIVE 'SIT & CHAT' with Zen Historian & Dogen Specialist, Dr. Steven Heine

The point is that ... for instructions on what to do DURING Zazen ... there were no instructions from Dogen or the founding Soto priests in Japan to pick up a Koan or phrase ala Tahui or Hakuin. A very good exemplar of this is Keizan's Zazen Yojinki, in which Keizan (the other Soto key founder) giv...

Re: What's wrong with.... (the "dharmavegan" topic)

What displacing of accountability? ppl who consciously chose to not eat animal products also are more conscious of enviromental effects of all products (food + non-food) It's just not true, but let's take the example of a typical dutch food called "boerenkool" (Brassica oleracea) Traditionally it's ...

Re: What's wrong with.... (the "dharmavegan" topic)

Today, veganism for many means "packaged" carbs, with very little veg- And what veg is included was probably produced thousands of miles away, grown in foreign soil, shipped, prepared and then distributed- Yes sometimes, but it's still a better response to causes and conditions then animal exploita...

Re: You Are Invited: a LIVE 'SIT & CHAT' with Zen Historian & Dogen Specialist, Dr. Steven Heine

You are suffering from spiritual superiority complex IMO I don't agree. ps we all manifest that 'complex' from time to time, never met anyone, including every teacher I know who doesn't manifest that, but they are brief moments. It's kind of 'inherent' to comparing, not often does a student or teac...

Re: You Are Invited: a LIVE 'SIT & CHAT' with Zen Historian & Dogen Specialist, Dr. Steven Heine

but in all the detailed instructions he never once says "Then, pick up a phrase from a Koant" etc. Never, not once. So? Koans are given dependend on the students needs, karmic dispositions etc So why should it matter if it's there in the detailed written instructions or not, and how does it relate ...

No, it isn't- Because the overall impact of food producing practices are destroying the environment-
Ofcourse all human systems based on economics-politics is a symphony of destruction. Which can never be a counter argument against veganism.
