-What is the past and what is the future?
The Buddha answered:
-Let the past be and forget the future. I will teach you that... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: WHAT DID THE BUDDHA SAW WHEN HE GOT ENLINGTHENED
vertical line Posted on Nov.23.2013 @ 04:56PM EDT by leoj99

What did the Buddha saw when he got enlightened...  that there is suffering..people are suffering.  Why do people are suffering. I think the Buddha  actually saw the people are all crazy that is why they are suffering. He could not tell that people are crazy  because he might get killed by angry people who refuse to admit they are crazy...lol..
Because people are crazy .. there is suffering.. what else...LOL..

So what is the cause of suffering... because crazy people are always thinking...LOL.. thinking makes you crazy.... all mental illnesses are caused by too much thinking...

Even in Bodhidharma time there were crazy people.. that is why he was poisoned 7 times...lol.. they did not like Bopdhidharma.. they did not like what he said or what he was doing..LOL..

So how about now.. what do you think..more crazy people?...LOL

vertical line So many people are talking in Zen Forums about Buddha Nature and all that Zen supposed to be...LOL... But how can they talk about Buddha Nature when obviously they have not found or seen their Buddha Nature... isn't that  real crazy... you are talking of something you have not really seen or experienced...LOL.. I think that is the no. 1 craziness in this world...LOL

vertical line Whenever there is growth you have growing pain.  If you are patient culture will finish growing and people will be peaceful.
People are born ignorant
Then get excited by knowledge and don't pay respect
Soon they will recognize knowledge for what it is
Then use it sparingly

The Buddhas words are balm for growing pain

vertical line Many people experience their true nature. It is often just a break in the narrative, a small gap, where there is no observation. Yet it is dismissed as too simple to be the grandiosity of pure presence. And of course having followed the white rabbit, they are correct. The spaciousness, the gap, have been buried under narrative, until the next gap. A rose is the queen of flowers that we stop to smell, and simultaneously it is just a flower.
