  A monk came to say good bye to Ch'an master Niaowo (Bird's Nest). He said:
-Thank you, Sir, for everything you've done for me. Now I got to go.
Niaowo asked:
-Where will you go?

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: VILLAINOUS BALD ASSES
vertical line Posted on Sep.14.2007 @ 10:54AM EDT by stephen
If there was nothing to these worthies [Buddha's, patriarchs,
sages] but wine-drinking, meat-eating, pointless chatter,
aimless wandering, and the random compilation of bad
poetry… then, everywhere, villainous bald asses would
justify [their own wanton behavior] using these
worthies' names. The monastic institution would be
transformed into a den of rogues and criminals.
This would cause the Buddhist school to fall into
disarray, and might even lead to its destruction
(Jigong quanzhan 27.11b, from Faure 1998, 110-111

Yes Rust Man, I quoted this for you. The place of the fool and the “bad boy” has many reincarnations in Buddhism. Many times they are shakers of the truth and realizers. Most of the time they are just redundant and boring. The problem is that their method is derived from their “I” center. Many learn that they are not “I” but only a thought of  “I” and that they have no center. MU

Hi All,

All Self Identity is an illusion

It take more energy to hold hold on to one's ego than to let it go

Spiritual Transformation. Encourage People. Help Enlighten No

Birth and no Death

Go beyond physical form

Beyond time and space

Realise Ultimate Supreme Truth In Conquering

No Birth and No Death

One follows the other  with passage of time.

Be Awaken

Let Bygone Be Bygone

Peace Be With All

With Metta To All

Hi All,

It is not  fake and It is not real

Remember Unpleasant Speech, Thoughts Invite Conflicts

Don't get so worked up

Spiritual Teaches Everyone, Peace, Hopes, Even No

Suffering when the mind is firm and calm.

Pointing out mistakes wounds a man's feelings

Label not oneself a Buddhist

That is Attachment

To learn, To Know and To Serve

With Metta To All

vertical line Wating is good, it's part of the practice, before the tea, just as, if not more important.

Consider Rustic's posts to be a  tea. And consider the waiting around that.

One does not force the tea to become more than it is, before it's time. Each thing is as it is, without the need to change it to fit  "our" style.

Each one of us individually has a style unique to us, and this place has certain positive interactive perimeters, which values freedom and creativity in making, causing us to express the thoughts of  our being, here,  where we all are... to, for, and with each other.

vertical line The biggest, and best portion of any practice is in dealing with emotions and fears that we do not want, and seeing the value in the hard times that we have become blind to. What we want may not be the best thing to work with. Just sitting does not satisfy any need but to have the inner turmoil surface and transpire to see that we are capable of existing without the desire to add another statement to the list, entertain another basically selfish delight, or find purpose in blaming another as excuse. We become the other, and drop the dual shift between opposites, inside as well as outside.

Once silence causes a separation from the "usual" way of doing things, we open to subtle perceptions that have no word content to either bring attention to, or avoid the feelings that do not fit in with the established peer group we admire or identify with. One discovers enlightenment alone, and can relate to "another's" based now on the identification of value in all, each and every experience.
