62 False Views   Leave a comment


These are the 62 false views that a Buddha said, from Brahmajala sutta.

The 62 kinds of wrong view (regarding eternity, self, and causality):
1. The one who claims to recall many past lives and believes the self to be eternal.
2. The one who recalls one to ten contractions and expansions and believes the self to be eternal.
3. The one who recalls 40 periods of contractions and expansions and believes the self to be eternal.
4. The one who sees beings rush around, circulate, and re-arise, but ―this! remains forever.
5. The one who recalls a past existence in a heavenly plane where he was subject to a more powerful deva and thus, thinks in this life that the more powerful deva is an eternal, all-powerful God. Such a person proclaims that deva to be the one-all-powerful God, creating or following a mono-theist religion, which is essentially wrong view.

15. The one who evades all questions fearing that he will be caught in his ignorance.

Everything and Nothing

Everything has been Burning continually and will continue to Burn.
Everything is changing continually and will continue to Change.
Everything is in a state of Motion continually and will continue to Move.

Our Attachment to Short-lived thinking tendency towards Everything is the Source of Suffering.
Our Ignorance that it will last long thinking tendency towards Everything is the Source of Suffering.
Our Anger that it did not last longer enough thinking tendency towards Everything is the Source of Suffering.

B happy with Nothing, then, u will be happy with Everything.
Everything is Samsara (Cycle) and Nothing is Nibbana.
But in Nothing, there is Everything.

Buddha – Compassion   Leave a comment


Why did Buddha never get angry?

It’s reason more often intellectual rather than what he achieved Nibanna, but the superior is the experience which only the Siddhartha Buddha felt it.

  1. An old man also never gets anger to young people with full of youthful bliss, because old man has some “wisdom” about the age, stages of life, struggles, and mistakes he did while he was young. Therefore, old people always give u wisdom and guidance in life, instead of anger. This is what buddha did.
  2. A school Professor also knows that students have not got gained or found the path to learn importance, need of school education, which professor understand it’s implication. So, a good professor always guide students where he is missing the point in understanding the truths. This is what buddha did.
  3. Parents often forgive to their children, and show the correct way because parents know what right and wrong. Similarly, buddha guided us.
  4. Doctors give medicines to cure as specific to disease type. Similarly, buddha treated people who were engraved with dukkha (suffering).
  5. In your own life, either u have forgiven others or others have forgiven you for the mistakes. Realizing higher truths, u tend to forgive for futile things.

So, Buddha is the greatest tutor, guide, parent, doctor (therapist), psychoanalytic, behavioral therapist. He knew there’s a Root cause of every Dukkha. He understood thoroughly, the anger act is the resultant effect of the root cause, the reflection of the root cause. He knew there’s no solution in “Reacting” to the anger, it only arises further declination of a relationship.

Regular people get anger aroused quickly & easily. There is no point in getting anger. To get anger on something is the ignorance, Finding a root cause & showing a correct path is the Wisdom. Empathetic Buddha exactly helped poor people with a correct path and asked to walk through by him/her self. Buddha cannot take you there, you’ve to walk yourself. You walked in the wrong path, so you got misery. Now i showed you the true path, again you’ve to walk yourself to get out of misery.

Buddha Born   Leave a comment


Is Buddha born in Nepal or India?

The world is researching and the people want to know. More than 623 B.C., there were many kingdoms in current Nepal and in India. There was no clear distinction between those two current countries.  But, it can be delineate the lines from the perspective where the mixture of India and Chinese people have lived together in this himalayan zones, one plateau to northern part and other totally vastness of flat land.

There is still the ‘Greater NEPAL’ concept, which is encompass a larger parts of India, which was in Nepal before. The British invasion in india and a part of Nepal, made a collapse of several Nepali regions extended far west to far east.

3 Things are most important to Remember where Buddha born.

  1. Buddha, particularly, siddhartha was born in Lumbini, Kapilvastu, Nepal. The physical body, and such things happens only in pure lands.
  2. Siddhartha achieved Nibanna, in India for now, which was Nepal, before British took a chunk part of Nepal under Greater nepal.
  3. Actually, the seed of buddha is inside each body of us.

The question is, “Is it worth fighting for?”.
