Re: Fruit Flies

That human opportunity surpasses (far or not so far I can’t say) them all does not negate the possibility that all beings benefit from the Dharma. Benefit doesn’t necessarily mean practice. I can relate to that astute observation, "also" the idea one is a human, an animal, a this or that ofcourse i...

Re: Fruit Flies

... and when it comes to practicing the dharma, human opportunity far surpasses them all, except for maybe the Pure Land rebirth. There is no such thing as lower forms in the universe. All sentient advanced civilisations understand this eventually. This then is simply a crude human perception of th...

Re: Fruit Flies

Sure, but that doesn't mean cats and dogs can practice it. They do not need to, my cats have qualities and experiences I could never practise or experience. And if you look at some animals, I'd say they have no need for a human form or religion, since humans are (often) the most "evil" of all anima...

Re: Fruit Flies

One of the drawbacks of being born in the animal realm, the inability to practice the dharma. Humans on the other hand, we do have this opportunity and it should not be wasted. Perhaps. I don't know. I do know - first hand- that many animals are bodhisattvas, I wouldn't take the scriptures too lite...

Re: Fruit Flies

This is the best way. Killing them is the opposite of how to practice Buddhism. :) I still have no success telling my cats not to kill moths/night-butterflies, they know birds are not food but they go beserk when a moth enters the house, I can catch 90% of them but sometimes they're just to quick. ...

Re: Fruit Flies

How would you prevent him? Everyone who comes to my house understands killing is not supported by me, so no one would ever dare to harm a fly here, literally and figuratively. As for here, the flies are mostly gone from the house. I caught most of them in the countertop trimmings container which I ...

Re: The practice of Zazen

Thank you for your replies. Yes, Jundo is not wrong. But, he ignored all that comes before Shikantaza. One can not just come and do Shikantaza without some prior training. Just like a baby must learn to crawl before it can learn to walk. His presentation was to want everyone to do Shikantaza withou...

Re: grace

I rather like how the author puts it, that we are “moved by causes whose miscellaneous origins are lost in the inscrutable night of eternity. “ p.s: I think you might appreciate this book. It’s a relatively short and easy read - but quite direct. Thanks, by grace I just might, speaking of cigars, I...

Re: Fruit Flies

Not that common sense can’t be Buddhist, but I’m wondering if and how one, who professes to the form and meaning of buddhadharma, may get rid of fruit flies. When I once had malaria, I was not hesitant in accepting the the parasiticide that got rid of that problem. Yet earlier, as a young teenager,...

Re: grace

Calling it "secret" and then publishing it in a book--kinda let's the cat out of the bag, so to speak. Oxymoronic title, too. (P.S. no cat should have to live out of a bag. Or dog!) Haha true! The amount of books is ridiculous in the spiritual marketplace, the words of my master were enough, just a...

Re: Music

Meh the above song sucks upon second listening, uncreative, also can't be ex-cited about Slipknots upcoming new album (the issues stuff no longer has a function same goes for Korn, but bodhisattvas of metal they remain for the suffering) so a classic it is then, but live recently in Amsterdam, thoug...
