Ordinary Buddha by Thich Nhat Hanh

Master Linji, better known in the West as Rinzai, shook up the Buddhist world by telling his students to drop their enlightenment agenda and simply be their true, ordinary selves. Thich Nhat Hanh examines Master Linji’s teachings on the “businessless person,” who has nothing to do and nowhere to go....

Re: What is “the body”?

It's "interesting" that there is only one Mind, and that there are many bodies. Only one Mind, but many sentient beings. Granted, it's not a Buddhist theme, but, a theme from Hinduism that I still like is that of the one Mind taking multitudinous perspectives, and charades with Itself, from its inc...

When it’s time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you’re tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.

I put down my book, The Meaning of Zen, and see the cat smiling into her fur as she delicately combs it with her rough pink tongue. "Cat, I would lend you this book to study but it appears you have already read it." She looks up and gives me her full gaze. "Don't be ridiculous," she purrs, "I wrote it." ~Dilys Laing, "Miao"

The body-mind is an functional apparatus, any concepts about "true body" or "true mind" is therefore a result of that birth chemical mistakenly identified with, all positive terms when it comes to "true body" or "true nature" are misleading, to know the conditioned as the conditio...

Re: "I used to think X, but now I think Y... "

I used to think there was a thinker behind thoughts, a believer behind beliefs. So I constantly altered between believing and non-believing so called thinking and non-thinking based on second hand knowledge from that sperm-consciousness, or birth-chemical, the child of ignorance, the root of the man...

#MeTooGuru - Support the Dalai Lama's effort to remedy sexual abuse

Please sign this petition of survivors of Buddhist sex offenders to get a chance to meet with the Dalai Lama in the Netherlands (september 14-17th) today on Dutch news it was announced that they weren't sure they could fit it into the program, which would be (religiously) ironic if it didn't happen,...

I looked for the Spirit to reveal itself to me, when all that was necessary was 'relaxation unto God'. The Spirit was always with me, vei...
