Buddha Vehicles   2 comments


The Global Buddhist’s follower, leaders’ problem-
Hinyana, Vajrayana, Mahayan, which is the greatest vehicle?
or is there something buddha has enunciated?
The answer is here today.

In the Path of Buddha, he educated people concisely the daily art of living practical teachings, which some considered the provisional teachings. But if you look at even today or in future, so called such provisional teachings are equally essential. Also, in his teachings, there is neither imaginative nor salvation by someone other than you, and who there’s no one illusory up above in the sky waiting to do salvation. You are you own salvation, and act right now by following the noble path. If you walk noble, you will reach in noble place. So, what is noble path? Is it intellectually attractive?

In this forward moving modernization, independently thinking and contemplative people’s mass movement around the world, is displaying the pattern of ‘Seeking Mind‘ rather than ‘Following Mind‘, no matter what they used to follow, or born with so called. Globally, all citizens are naturally abdicating ‘what was so called their’, and ‘what they are born with’, after all human intelligence is growing, check your younger generations how smart they are, and how antiquated we are. Everything is changing, the only constant is the Change. The change of human in future is towards in dependency towards choice, as more people are educated, and social dilation. No more will be given, everything is a choice. Those independent seeking mind are discovering the true essence of a religion (education), that produces effect here and now, and there’s no someone in the sky, who will come to you when the earth needs. If you look at the history, it has always been dark in the deep heart and sorrows, which can be seen in their eyes. It is only the buddha’s short, quick, simply presented truth words has been an attraction for everyone.

But, when you open the door towards the Buddhahood path, today’s religious followers show you more doors (vehicle/path) towards different vehicle (Yana or Yaan or yan), and wherever you enter in their sect, and sub-sect, everyone deludes you and completely shut your third eye (wisdom) to your seeking mind. They make you sheep, so be human and see something beyond horizon you have. Precisely, there are Theravada (Hinyana-), Mahayana, Vajrayana (Mantra/Tantra-magical). So, i give you an antidote. If anyone think of the assembly, then, there are only the four assemblies: Monks, Nuns, Laymen, Laywomen. Monks, Nuns have always been the teacher of peace towards many laymen and laywomen in societies. So, what is the true vehicle as said by buddha?

Buddha has said that the noble 8 fold path is only the path, in his own words as “Ek yana Maggo“, Meaning- Ek (only One), Yana (Vehicle), Maggo (Path). So, the only vehicle is the path and the path stated is the 8 NOBLE PATH (Astingka Magga). If you walk  (practice) on this following path then, it is itself a vehicle (yana). By Practicing, you will experience  or immerse truly, which is by definition means is the the vehicle to take you in the destination. Eg. If you practice the  Right View, you will experience the positive effect of wisdom brought about by the right view path. If you practice the wrong view path, you will experience the negative effect. Choice is yours and so will sow the seeds and will bear fruit accordingly. There is no luck or chances or will grace you, only one can show you a path with full compassion. But You have to walk on your own.  So, always walk on the Path (Yana) of 8 noble path, not the illusory vajrayana, mahayana, or theravada yana which were later created.

8 noble pathsको लागि तस्बिर परिणाम

I’m just grateful for the Buddha and his words that i have been able to decipher intelligently, and Purely. Tathagatha, i take a refugee completely in an immersive way. I’m fortunate to hear your such profound, immeasurable, pure teachings, and let me put it in your pristine way to best of my understanding. Let me understand the wisdom of Buddha.

Hope everyone understands the true vehicle you stated in this time of diluted teachings.

Origin of Philosophy   1 comment


   Is the Father of Western Philosopher, the Socrates, the follower of Buddha’s education?

The Timeline is the most important to put for the efficacious truth of Western and Eastern Philosophy. Both looked at the mind to be researched, rest physical world are just a mirror, projections or bi-products of our monkey nature of mental Thoughts, Logic, Ideas, Inquisitiveness, Concepts on politics, Morality & Ethics, Consciousness, Independent, Reincarnation, Courageousness, Knowledge, Virtues, etc.

Looking the widely accepted timeline is the Birth Period of Jesus has separated the BCE and CE (AD). The Eastern Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama – Many modern scholars believe that the historical Buddha lived from about 563 to about 483 BCESocrates (469/470-399 BCE) was a Greek’s profound philosopher and is considered the father of western philosophy. The trade route from China to Asia Minor and India, known as the Silk Road, had been in existence for 1,400 years at the time of Marco Polo’s travels (c. AD 1270–90). It came into partial existence about 300 BC, when it was used to bring jade from Khotan (modern Hotan, China) to China. By 200 BC it was linked to the West, and by 100 BC it was carrying active trade between the two civilizations. At its zenith in AD 200 this road and its western connections over the Roman system constituted the longest road on Earth. The most important timeline to note is the Partial existence of the Silk route of 300 BC, means it was existed long before.

In both Eastern and Western hemispheres’ countries, there was a heavy influence and blinded deeply of agency’s (institution) god influence in our society to slave people with Fear and Greed, it is Control of people like herdsman does. Countries, People were in distressed, depressed, controlled by Closed Minded Elites, where individuality was lost. Both Buddha and Socrates, who have a profound intellectual influence to open their mind ‘wisdom’ on an ancient and modern society.

The Great Emperor, Ashoka, ruled form 268 BCE to 232 BCE and became a model of kingship in the Buddhist tradition. Jesus, who himself was the Buddhist monk. We know that that Buddha had sent his disciples to different directions and we can assumed to correlate that some disciples or householder follower or buddha’s words must have somehow passed to all the way to the Rome, and Greece through Oral tradition at least, by walking the improperly developed the Silk Route, which later when many people used to travel through silk route became a solid route. It is my hypothesis is that When Silk Road was improperly recognized during its initial developing phases, people used to travel and during this time-the messenger of buddha’s knowledge got propagated from the east to the west. Those Messenger could be any buddhist monk, or merchants, who circulated not only the silk and culture, but such a profound knowledge of Buddha. The Silk Road derives its name from the lucrative trade in Chinese silk carried out along its length, beginning during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). When Socrates came in contact to hear such wisdom words full of enlightening education that could break bondage of social and mental’s limited sphere to open consciousness out to realize oneself and ontology of existence itself. Socrates must have certainly been delighted brightly, and little did he know more, he went onto research further through discussion and analysis, which is also one of the buddha’s path towards augmenting wisdom. Right then, he was more hungrier for intellectual knowledge and brightness to taste the wisdom and shared it to people who came in contact with him like Plato as students. Socrates’ thirst of seeking mind was his ability to explore more on the path towards raising consciousness.

Within the Metaphysics, Plato, the student of Socrates, stated that Socrates was occupied with the search for moral virtues, being the “first to search for universal definitions for them”. Such a universal definition of moral virtues only comes from the enlightened one, the Buddha.

Looking at time frame, from my study analysis of both time-frame and their philosophy, it appears to me that Socrates, like Jesus, was the follower of Buddha’s education. Socrates is a son of a stone mason, so who could easily come in contact with disciples and open to new ideas by coming in contact with whoever travelers in town. Simple and honest Socrates frequently says his ideas are not his own, but his teachers. So, the buddha’s disciples, merchant or hearers of buddha’s education, must have somehow come in contact to him is my hypothesis.

If you read the book Abhidhamma propounded by Buddha, who lived before Socrates, and Jesus Christ. This book is nothing but all about Mind. This is the first detailed book documented ever in the human psychology. Socrates came later.

Purpose of Life   1 comment


Even the richest people do crazy, nonsensical ostentatious pose, are also not happy with their worldly toys, Why? because mind doesn’t naturally need it. And, economically poor people desire for money to flaunt themselves among friends. Observe the level of mind and what is your level of mind. But, then, what is the purpose of my Life?

The Purpose of life is to open, raise oneself towards the complete, highest consciousness state of mind. Imagine, if you can use 100% of your brain capacity. Even science can’t imagine, what would happen if you can.

Every time, your mind is nourished with new knowledge, information either good or bad experiences in life; everything adds up to help you to make a complete alleviated state of mind or in other words, make you more wise with wisdom.  More your mind is alleviated, you treat people more with true compassion, forgiveness and smile at their attitude like of little children. Human need to experience the power of mind.

What happens to Mind?
When your mind is thirsty, you feel fatigue, lethargic, finds no value of existence, you feel complete emptiness, you lose yourself. It is a mind state either much low or a time to open the higher level of mind. It is a stage where, your mental state do not match with mental state of your surroundings.

Then, What is Blocking?
You may enjoy the worldly affairs with less hardship because we are bound to be the prisoner of the sense organs. Like our sense organs, the religions, books, Academic certificates, Knowledge, imprisoned in impression towards something/someone, are the prison bars. Intellect is lower than the consciousness of mind. Intellect is dry science, but consciousness is rather the juicy, rich experience.

The open-minded people are one who has broken the prison bars and will approach to the highest level of consciousness mind. So, be open, independent view, be augmentative towards new areas. Walk up to fresh air, green hill, then look at the city. And, sit comfortably and just observe on incoming breathe and outgoing breathe. Oxygen goes to your brain nerves and nourishes to refresh deactivated parts which will help you to raise your consciousness and awareness of everything is a consequence. So, Always take a deep breathe, if you have not found the Purpose of Life.

Congratulations! Your level of consciousness has risen as you have read this article.  As new ideas push the morphogenetic field outward, new attractor fields are built, breaking through old thought forms and beliefs driven by force and new belief systems are created. As more of us think about this topic and these considerations, larger and larger fields are created.

Religion Definition   Leave a comment


Does your religion give a peace in mind to yourself and others?
Does your religiion have a clear path step by step?
Does your religion show you on how to become a perfect human?
Which religion or sect now actually gives you a proper answer based on direct experience and fit at behavioral, scientific and intellectually correct?
Does your religion teach to be compassion, forgiveness?
Does you religion is an instant result-oriented of your action?
Can you experiment on yourself for the happiness of all sentient beings?
Does your religion explain cause and effect, because nature is based on it?
Does it let you free, independent, instead of imprisonment?
What is the true, unblemished definition of a Religion?

Religion= Real + zation + legion
Real = True, Pure, Natural, Universal law that is applicable at varied level, scale. Not imagined or supposed. Real should be the behaviroal, scientific, intellectually correct.
Zation= an act of becoming fully aware of something as a fact:
legion= a group of people who follow this real understanding.

Originally, the definition of a “Religion” so called now, has common, pure understanding throughout the World. But, later, people due to their geographic, language differences over time with their capacity of understanding, developed a tag, logo & flag and drove a legion as a sect, group as separate. So, people be human. Wake up people.

Buddha says, “Do only the good deeds, Avoid the bad deeds; It is eternal buddha’s education”. There is in fact, no as such buddhism. How can such eternal and universal education be a sect? Buddha’s education perverse everywhere. So, all sentient beings need to research yourself if his education changes your life instantly. It is a compulsory education to be taught in schools to make a pure, complete human for the peace and prosperity of a human civilization and rest sentient beings.

Is this the Physics subject is finding the natural, universal law? Will it decipher the religion one day. Unfortunately, science can only perceive, but cannot taste it and unless you taste it, you will not know the real thing. So, instead of science, the conscience is very important to taste it. For conscience, the human form of existence is of great and fortunate enough. So strive towards it. So, far from my study, the Buddha who has realized and awakened himself, and taught, showed path towards his stage and encourage us to understand this universal fact, which the einstein quoted clearly.

Einstein on Buddhism

Religion integrates, collects, assemble, bring together human with its compassionate, forgiveness, friendly knowledge and skill. If your so called religion doesn’t unite people, and help in need, you need to change your understanding.

Mahayana Origination   2 comments


The Mahayana Buddhism, a sect, must have come initially, the origination or who has true faith based on the Mahanama Sutta and the ‘Faith is kept First’. This is my hypothesis. I personally don’t believe in ‘..ism’ thing as Buddha’s words are universal means applies to everyone, everything, and no need to sect it. No one should necessarily claim that you are Buddhist. But do not limit yourself in such any sects which was later devised from their little, incapable thoughts. Buddha’s all words are beyond the capacity of those who disected buddha and developed a piece and made personalized sects. It is universal, not personalized. Keep doing vipasana meditation.

“Mahanama Sutta: Being a Lay Buddhist” (AN 8.25), translated from the Pali by Kumara Bhikkhu. Access to Insight (BCBS Edition), 30 November 2013.
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/an/an08/an08.025.kuma.html .

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

Once the Blessed One was dwelling among the Sakyas in Nigrodha Park at Kapilavatthu. There, Mahanama the Sakyan approached the Blessed One. Having approached and paid respect to the Blessed One, he sat aside. Then, seated aside, Mahanama the Sakyan said thus to the Blessed One:

“Venerable sir, in what way is one a lay follower?”[1]

“Mahanama, inasmuch as one has gone to the Buddha for refuge, has gone to the Dhamma for refuge, has gone to the Sangha for refuge; in that way, Mahanama, one is a lay follower.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower virtuous?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower abstains from destroying living beings; abstains from taking what is not given; abstains from sexual misconduct; abstains from lying; and abstains from wine, liquor and intoxicants that are causes for heedlessness; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is virtuous.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower engaged in his own welfare, but not in others’ welfare?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower is possessed of faith himself, but rouses not others to possess faith; is possessed of virtue himself, but rouses not others to possess virtue; is possessed of liberality himself, but rouses not others to possess liberality; is himself desirous of meeting with monks, but rouses not others to meet with monks; is himself desirous of hearing the true Dhamma, but rouses not others to hear the true Dhamma; is himself habitually mindful of the Dhamma that is heard, but rouses not others to be mindful of the Dhamma; has himself ascertained the meaning/benefit of the Dhamma that is heard, but rouses not others to ascertain the meaning/benefit; having known the meaning/benefit, having known the Dhamma, is himself committed to the practice according to the Dhamma, but rouses not others to be committed to the practice according to the Dhamma; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is engaged in his own welfare, but not in others’ welfare.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower engaged in his own welfare and in others’ welfare?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower is possessed of faith himself, and rouses others to possess faith; is possessed of virtue himself, and rouses others to possess virtue; is possessed of liberality himself, and rouses others to possess liberality; is himself desirous of meeting with monks, and rouses others to meet with monks; is himself desirous of hearing the true Dhamma, and rouses others to hear the true Dhamma; is himself habitually mindful of the Dhamma that is heard, and rouses others to be mindful of the Dhamma; is himself ascertained of the meaning/benefit of the Dhamma that is heard, and rouses others to ascertain the meaning/benefit; having known the meaning/benefit, having known the Dhamma, is himself committed to the practice according to the Dhamma, and rouses others to be committed to the practice according to the Dhamma; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is engaged in his own welfare and in others’ welfare.”

May be this world is a prison, that’s why we always strive for enlightenment. Especially, when you r in a deep shit, u always desire to overcome suffering at least, right?

In any so called religions, i never like the “ism”, especially in the Buddhism- only the word Buddha is Perfect, that is inherent in all life forms, no matter what their origin, sex, color, or follow any sect. It is rather a Law of nature simply. Like, when anger arises, it creates a negative atmosphere in surrounding, and with happiness, it creates a peaceful ambience, and this ubiquitous law of nature pertains and pervades in all life. I’m not a blind faith, and believe only that transforms me into a better person at both logical and experiential level. A better person means to achieve the pinnacle of success or my virtues without harming others at least even living as earthly person because i need good fortune as well. To propagate a positive vibe is also to dispel the fundamental darkness, so i’m writing particularly this issue.

New York – Vipassana Acharya S. N. Goenka addressed the delegates to the Millennium World Peace Summit as they gathered in the United Nations General Assembly Hall today – first ever gathering of religious and spiritual leaders in the UN. Mr. Goenka’s speech, in the session entitled Conflict Transformation, focussed on the themes of religious harmony, tolerance and peaceful coexistence. Mr. Goenka said, “Rather than converting people from one organized religion to another organized religion,we should try to convert people from misery to happiness, from bondage to liberation and from cruelty to compassion.”

In practicing Buddhism, i like both Vipassana Meditation as well as the Nichiren Daishonin (the Lotus Sutra). It is very truly expounded here that the 5 sense organs+mind are the primal sources  of the purification and pollution of an individual. Our sense organs- eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body receives/send information (evil or good emotional feelings) to/from brain and surrounding. It ultimately manifests a person of good and bad nature or transforming one’s virtues. This is the law of nature that every living are confined in.

The heart of the Buddha’s lifetime of teachings is the Lotus Sutra, which manifests in our behaviour and character, the most valuable treasurer as a human being. What matters most is one’s heart. The wonderful qualities and character as a person will even inspire and move the hearts of people who are not practicing this faith. It is rather a human thing than imaginative. So, Lesson is unless we change our behavior to good by experiencing a true state of peace and tranquility amidst continual struggle against evil.

Mr. Toda, Soka Gakkai says to youth that, “sometimes you’ll encounter situations where things don’t go as you would like. when that happens, voice constructive opinions. speak out confidently and articulate your views. Respect people of character and integrity, and stand up bravely to the high-handed and arrogant. That’s what youth need to do. some people become increasingly self-centered as they get older. often leaders grow lax and corrupt when they rise to high positions and there is no one around to guide or correct them. The leaders in our organization for kosen-rufu need to be exceptionally self-disciplined.”
