"AWAKENING TO BUDDHISM" Movement
« on: October 30, 2016, 08:34:52 pm »
Dear Sir , Perhaps 2500 years ago there was a great man said to be named as Mr Siddharta perhaps had a realization on the nature of human suffering and he tried to explain and share it to mankind .
... and SAID TO BE there was a quotation in formal Buddhism Text itself that before Mr Siddharta passed away , he was quoted saying that " Let My Teaching Be Your Teacher "...together with another quotation SAID TO BE quote " Believe Nothing No Matter What You Hear Or Read , Even If I Have Said It , Unless It Agrees With Your Own Reason and Common Sense " ......

With these message , is common sense his realization is just like an gossip , a rumors and just a mere information not even to be accepted as a guide for own exploration ....he never recorded saying " Let Your Teacher Teach My Teaching ".........so why so many Buddhist monk claimed as Buddhist Teacher teaching Buddhism based on what they know?

But soon after Mr Siddharta’s death and until today , there are millions of people with an ordinary mind , feeding on his information transforming into a knowledge , rituals , practices , creating into various culture / traditions and even benefited from it........calling themselves to be a Buddhist Teacher / Master with various title and recognition , even claiming to reach a high level of realization .....TEACHING Buddhism itself instead of being just a reporter......... .

Mr Siddharta ‘s explanation perhaps is like a painting on the wall and lets people explore it within themselves without any people trying to be smart and explaining something with their ordinary minds .

Buddhist Teachers had transformed perhaps the greatest discovery of mankind into a factor causing human to continue suffering of confusion for thousands of years and perhaps even thousands more to come .....and now their afford is supported by another group of in formal studies known as Buddhist Scholar.

If Buddhist Organization hold on text that said to be Mr Siddharta words as referral , then NO ONE HAVE THE RIGHT TO TEACH BUDDHISM .....

Mr Siddharta's explanation should be served as just a mere information for own exploration of own existence and now millions of people are taking advantage by teaching it ... they became the teacher instead of the "teaching" of Mr Siddharta .

Buddhism perhaps NEVER was a form of Knowledge.…..So HOW COULD ANYONE TEACH IF BUDDHISM IS NOT A FORM OF KNOWLEDGE ?.....

I am deeply concern of the way Buddhism is transforming . This has to be stopped . I have now moved from sharing my personal views into a more challenging role as to start a movement to spread awareness of Buddhism.

This movement is named " AWAKENING TO BUDDHISM" with only one simple objective is to spread awareness to people to explore their nature of own existence WITHOUT any interference from anyone and WITHOUT any referral . Any information even from Mr Siddharta should be accepted as a mere information NOT even as a guide for own exploration WITHOUT any teaching , guidance or explanation from anyone .
 
No teaching , no rituals , no worshipping , no referral , no guidance . Everyone is equal , Everyone is learning and no one is giving talks or teaching or guiding . Kindly email to undersigned for more information .


One Historian said “ If Buddha come back , He will see all he rejected now his follower put him in that place “.Please do not be part of perhaps greatest misinterpretation of mankind .

We must creates awareness and let people have the chance to explore themselves . What is teach to them is always a knowledge , what is explored perhaps will lead to realization and perhaps that is Mr Siddharta’s wish .

If you are in same mind , PLEASE SHARE THIS as facebook had disabled our account many times. We believe they will do again .
Anyone could start this movement within their capacity holding on a common objective with a common movement brand name .No one is leading this movement . We attribute this noble movement to Mr Siddharta . If you are of same mind , kindly furnish us any update . We are serious and sincere in this movement .
Thanks
Ee Chuan Seng

Perhaps you should start by stop using "CAPS LOCK" and second to let people find their own path. Other than that, good for you that you are on the straight path to nirvana. Thank you for sharing that with us here on the internet. Lol.

Hmmm.... I think you are trying to say that scholarly Buddhism, being knowledge-based, is not the same as developed practical techniques which enable people to experience tried and tested methods for themselves, to go through what they need to go through. That learning about Buddhism is not the same as actually following the path.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

Hi, ECS.  It appears that you are referencing Buddhas response to a community called The Kalamas in the following sutta:

The salient point is that we are to "believe" nothing that is put to us "no matter what the source" without first validating and verifying that the intormation is sound, i.e. The Truth.

That said, we know from our experience that "the truth" is "the truth" no matter what the source, including Buddhist teachers from any tradition of which we can name.

Resource for your study:  http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/soma/wheel008.html
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
