I'm curious if people are familiar with this blog which seems to have at least a nominal connection to Buddhism, and what people think of it.

hello all.

I have a blog im doing on the effects of Shantideva's Way of the Bodhisattva. Its based on an experiment and Patrul Rinpoche's commentary. It was said that Patrul Rinpoche promoted the Rime movement that was nonsecterian. His pervasive attitude toward the Bodhicharyavatara teachings was that they must be practiced.

So i have dedicated a year to practicing the book and its commentary in everyday situations to see if infact the mind can be changed from selfish to selfless. or at least less and less self in the picture.

Bodhicharyavatara Ch 1 vs 10

For like the supreme substance of the alchemists,It (bodhichitta) takes our impure flesh and makes of it The body of a Buddha, jewel beyond all price. Such is bodhichitta. Let us grasp it firmly

A new blog on living the Bodhicharyavatara ( Way of the Bodhisattva) .

Online Ego Self-fullfilment and aggrandizement. Just what the World needs most ......    :twocents:

I think that a blog that is dedicated to the help of others is far from self aggrandizement. Posibly the buddha would read it even.   :teehee: :wink1:

I hope nobody minds but I thought I'd post a link to my humble and quite newish blog here, its a general blog / journal kind of affair but with me being a Buddhist it does contain some rather inexperienced and probably ill concieved Buddhist'centric posts now and again  :blush:

I feel like a dork saying it, but I now have a blog.  I just made my first post.  It's a geeky comparison of several different translations of the sixteen mindfulness of breathing steps from the Anapanasati Sutta.

http://buddhistics.blog.com/
Like a rock,
like a planet,
like a f**king atom bomb,
I'll remain unperturbed by the joy and the
madness
that I encounter everywhere I turn
I've seen it all before
in books and magazines
like a twitch before dying
like a pornographic sea
there's a flower behind the window
there's an ugly laughing man
like a hummingbird in silence
like the blood on my door
it's the generator
oh yeah, oh yeah, like the blood on my door
wash me clean and I will run
until I reach the shore
I've known it all along
like the bone under my skin
like actors in a photograph
like paper in the wind
there's a hammer by the window
there's a knife on the floor
like turbines in darkness
like the blood on my door
it's the generator
-Bad Religion, Generator

Nice to see all those remarkable and diverse blogs here!  My own is more of a personal diary thing, so it's private.  Instead of original posts, I mainly place short Dharma texts and links there.  It's a handy place to keep track of these things and make them accessible any time.  To keep the blog private, I made it invisible to spiders.

I feel the only reply is for me to also invent my own Yana - Garudayana!

www.bluegaruda.org

It is vastly superior to the other Yanas and far more advanced than Buddhism.   LOL :)   :jinsyx:

Story:

Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido was approached by a young man who asked: 'Please will you teach me your Aikido?'

The old man relied:  'How interesting - everyone else seems intent on teaching their own Aikido'.

Cobbling together a few Buddhist practices and garnishing them with nonsensical personal prejudice seems to be the way forward for some.  How sad. :(

Personal views are coming and going... *smile*

Quote
"What do you think, Kalamas? When greed arises in a person, does it arise for welfare or for harm?"

"For harm, lord."

"And this greedy person, overcome by greed, his mind possessed by greed, kills living beings, takes what is not given, goes after another person's wife, tells lies, and induces others to do likewise, all of which is for long-term harm & suffering."

"Yes, lord."

"Now, what do you think, Kalamas? When aversion arises in a person, does it arise for welfare or for harm?"

"For harm, lord."

"And this aversive person, overcome by aversion, his mind possessed by aversion, kills living beings, takes what is not given, goes after another person's wife, tells lies, and induces others to do likewise, all of which is for long-term harm & suffering."

"Yes, lord."

"Now, what do you think, Kalamas? When delusion arises in a person, does it arise for welfare or for harm?"

"For harm, lord."

"And this deluded person, overcome by delusion, his mind possessed by delusion, kills living beings, takes what is not given, goes after another person's wife, tells lies, and induces others to do likewise, all of which is for long-term harm & suffering."

"Yes, lord."

"So what do you think, Kalamas: Are these qualities skillful or unskillful?"

"Unskillful, lord."

"Blameworthy or blameless?"

"Blameworthy, lord."

"Criticized by the wise or praised by the wise?"

"Criticized by the wise, lord."

"When adopted & carried out, do they lead to harm & to suffering, or not?"

"When adopted & carried out, they lead to harm & to suffering. That is how it appears to us."

"So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them.


from To the Kalamas
