Neurosciences - A neurosurgeon's perspective. (1/39)

The advancements in the field of science in the past fifty years have highlighted the need to integrate all fields of human endeavours and have emphasised interdependency of various disciplines. The separation of humanities, therefore, from neurosciences is a preposterous practical joke on all thinking men. With the human genome project on the anvil, biotechnology is making significant headway holding out promise for organ regeneration. Macro evolution is over, but micro-evolution continues in the brain. Neural Darwinism thus, continues to evolve as long as individual remains conscious and has memory. In the milieu of widely varying internal physiological mechanisms and external stimuli, an alternative theory to preprogrammed directionalism is proposed by three mechanisms namely developmental variation and selection, experiential selections and reentrant signalling. Reentrant signalling reorients and correlates the external inputs leading to psychic development preceding the development of consciousness. The cholinergic and aminergic neuro-modelling systems are well suited to serve as value systems. The main achievement of consciousness is to bring together the many categorizations involved in perceptions into a SCENE. Another part of evolution involved capacity of reentrant signalling to be guided by a value system where it is provided with a lot of choices. With 10(13) neurons and 10(16) connections, freedom of choice may manifest into a 'Buddha' or a 'Hitler'. As part of the evolutionary process, it was interesting how capacity to categorize the need to worship by referring to environment outside evolved into a search within our minds. As the next stage of evolution, neuroscience may, thus, serve as the next gateway to understanding the mind and soul.  (+info)

Words of Tohkaku Wada: medical heritage in Japan. (2/39)

The origins of Japan's medical ideas, which are deeply rooted in its religion, culture and history, are not widely understood in medical societies of other countries. We have taken up the task of summarising this tradition here so that some insight can be gained into the unique issues that characterise the practice of medicine in Japan. We borrow from the sayings of Tohkaku Wada, a medical philosopher of late eighteenth-century Japan, for a look at Japanese medical tradition. Wada's medical thought was very much reflective of the Buddhism, Zen, and swordsmanship that informed eighteenth-century philosophy in Japan. His central concepts were "chu" and "sei", that is, complete and selfless dedication to the patient and the practice of medicine. This paper explores Wada's thought, explaining it mainly from the standpoint of Japanese traditional culture.  (+info)

Religious beliefs and practice, and alcohol use in Thai men. (3/39)

Buddhism, the Thai state religion, teaches that use of intoxicants should be avoided. Nonetheless, many Thai people drink alcohol, and a proportion are alcohol-dependent or hazardous or harmful drinkers. This study examines the relationship between Buddhist upbringing and beliefs and alcohol use disorders in Thai men. Three groups, comprising 144 non/infrequent/light drinkers, 77 hazardous/ harmful drinkers and 91 alcohol dependents were interviewed regarding their early religious life and current religious practices and beliefs. No protective association was shown between early religious life and later alcohol use disorders; indeed, having lived as a boy in a temple for a period was commoner in those with adult alcohol problems. Few subjects reported frequent involvement in current religious activities (9, 8 and 6% in the non/infrequent/light drinkers, hazardous/harmful drinkers, and alcohol dependents respectively). Hazardous/harmful drinkers [odds ratio (OR) = 0.4, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.2-0.9] and alcohol dependents (OR = 0.5, 95% CI = 0.2-0.9) were less likely to report being moderately to strongly religious, than were non/infrequent/light drinkers. Understanding the association between religious beliefs and drinking behaviour can potentially assist in the development of prevention and treatment programmes.  (+info)

Chinese and South Asian religious institutions and HIV prevention in New York City. (5/39)

Religious institutions in Asian immigrant communities are in a unique position to confront the challenges of the HIV epidemic for the populations they serve. However, there has been little research on whether these institutions are willing or able to take a role in HIV prevention. This article reports on findings from a qualitative study of three Asian immigrant religious institutions in New York City (a Buddhist temple, a Hindu temple, an Islamic center/mosque) that are part of a larger study of Asian immigrant community institutions and their response to the HIV epidemic. Several prominent themes arose that formed the basis of a preliminary theoretical framework describing the way Asian immigrant religious institutions may evaluate their role in HIV prevention. The interview data indicate that the institutions take a stance of "conservative innovation," weighing their role as keepers of morality and religious tradition against the changing needs of their communities and then adjusting their practices or positions incrementally (to varying degrees) to stay responsive and relevant.  (+info)

Therapeutic perspectives of human embryonic stem cell research versus the moral status of a human embryo--does one have to be compromised for the other? (6/39)

Stem cells are unspecialized cells able to divide and produce copies of themselves and having the potential to differentiate, i.e. to produce other cell types in the body. Because of the latter ability, the scientists investigate their possible use in regenerative medicine. Especially embryonic stem cells have huge therapeutic potential because they can give rise to every cell type in the body as compared to stem cells from certain adult tissues which can only differentiate into a limited range of cell types. For this reason scientists stress the importance of embryonic stem cell research. However, this research raises sensitive ethical and religious arguments, which are balanced against possible great benefit of such research for the patients suffering from so far incurable diseases. The objective of this literature review is to present the main arguments in favor and against human embryonic stem cell research. Since the sensitivity of the latter issue to a large extent stems from the position of predominant religions in a given society, the positions of the main religions regarding embryo research are also presented. CONCLUSION: There is no consensus regarding ethical aspects of human embryonic stem cell research. The article presents both the arguments supporting human embryonic stem cell research and the arguments opposing it.  (+info)

Thailand's unsung heroes. (7/39)

Interoceptive awareness in experienced meditators. (8/39)

 (+info)

Buddhism experienced rapid growth in Taiwan following the war, which has been attributed to the immigration of several Buddhist teachers from Communist China after the defeat of the nationalists in the Chinese Civil War and the growth of Humanistic Buddhism (人間佛教). Humanistic Buddhism promotes a direct relationship between Buddhist communities and the wider society. Also known as Socially Engaged Buddhism, its focuses on the improvement of society through participation in aspects such as environmental conservation. Humanistic Buddhism is the major distinguishing trait of modern Taiwanese Buddhism.[10]. Humanistic Buddhism traces its roots to Chinese monk Venerable Taixu (1890-1947), who wanted to reform the continuous focus on ritual and ceremony.[5] Taixu promoted more direct contributions to society through the Buddhist community and was a significant influence for Master Ying Shun, who is generally considered to be the figure who brought Humanistic Buddhism to Taiwan.[11]. These two ...
Series Descripton: What happens after Buddhism? This radical question opens up a new and fresh horizon that will be explored by our Buddhist teachers.. Episode Description: In this opening session, Roshi Joan Halifax and Stephen Batchelor discuss the meaning of the topic of this program, After Buddhism. Roshi Joan introduces a vision of a non-Buddhistic Buddhism, or Dharma beyond sectarianism. She then describes the format of this program as it will unfold over the course of the week. Stephen then elaborates his own approach to a Buddhism outside of the container of creedal thinking.. Teacher BIOs : Stephen Batchelor is a contemporary Buddhist teacher and writer, best known for his secular or agnostic approach to Buddhism. Stephen considers Buddhism to be a constantly evolving culture of awakening rather than a religious system based on immutable dogmas and beliefs. Through his writings, translations and teaching, Stephen engages in a critical exploration of Buddhisms role in the modern ...
Hi. Welcome to my course on Buddhism and Modern Psychology. Im Robert Wright and Im here at Princeton University where, for the past couple of years, Ive been teaching the seminar that this course will be based on. Now, Ive never taught an online course before, so Im very excited about this. Its kind of an adventure for me. And I want to thank you all for choosing to be part of it. I want to spend the f, the first segment of this first lecture just giving you an overview of, of the main themes of the course and then Im going to talk a little bit about myself and what got me interested in this. Now one question you could ask about a course called Buddhism and Modern Psychology is which Buddhism are were talking about. After all, as with other religions, there are varieties of Buddhism. Just as there are different denominations of Christianity. There are different versions of Buddhism in Asia, and in addition to that, in, in recent decades, weve seen the emergence of something that some ...
east asia never have been Buddhist countries, or never have been buddhism dominating countries. in China, Korea the main political religion(philosophy) had been always counfucism, not Buddhism. for hundred years, Buddhism was womens religion, except some scholors and literaties like Zen practitioners and huayan sutra study, the literaties always kept their buddhism in the private area, especially Ming-QIng dynasty in China and Josen dynasty in Korea, so..frankly speaking we east asiasn have no concept like born into Christianlike most of westerners or Born into Buddhistslike south east asian countries. take my fammily for example, those who go to temple pray regualry are always my grand mother and mother. whereas my grand father and father dont, but after retirement, they started hwadu Zen practition and reading diamond sutra along with many counfucism canons like Lun yu, Da Xue i dont know if their attitude for buddhism is faith or not. and sometimes they would go to temple to ...

Starting in the 1950s, Syngman Rhee and others worked to further divide and weaken the Buddhist Sangha in the country. Rhee campaigned in 1954 against the so-called Japanized Buddhists. Western education and scholarship, and the empowerment of women and the poor, caused divisions among Koreans. Specifically, a deep rift opened between married priests and celibate monks, a carryover from Japanese Buddhisms influence during the occupation period, though there had been calls for an end to celibacy from some Korean monks before Japans annexation of the Korean peninsula. The differences were so great that fistfights over the control of temples became frequent. Monks, mostly belonging to the celibate Jogye order, threatened to kill themselves. Many of them were against the married clergy. As the Buddhist riots continued, the influence of Buddhism lessened. Buddhism continued to lose followers to Christian missionaries, who were able to capitalize on these weaknesses. From the 1960s onward, ...
The incomparable loftiness of the monk figure-placid and disinterested, having renounced desire-leads many to think of Buddhism as a religion detached from all worldly concerns, especially those of economy. But Buddhism has always addressed a continuum of human flourishing and good, creating what has been referred to as an economy of salvation. Metaphors of economy-even of debt-abound in Buddhist texts and, in many ways, Buddhism came to be fundamentally shaped by economic conditions and considerations of the era in which it originated.. Depending on material support from moneylenders, the Buddhist establishment from its outset did not seek to hamper the business that made it possible. Devout merchants (setthi) and householders (gahapatis)-controllers of property, moneylenders, often even usurers-were the primary supporters of the early monastic community. Giving material support (amisa-dana) to the monkhood thus ranks in Buddhist doctrine as the most effective way for laypeople to generate ...

In the Buddhist countries of southern Asia, there never arose any serious differences on the fundamentals of Buddhism. All these countries - Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand, have accepted the principles of the Theravada school and any differences there might be between the various schools is restricted to minor matters.. The earliest available teachings of the Buddha are to be found in Pali literature and belongs to the school of the Theravadins, who may be called the most orthodox school of Buddhism. This school admits the human characteristics of the Buddha, and is characterised by a psychological understanding of human nature; and emphasises a meditative approach to the transformation of consciousness. The teaching of the Buddha according to this school is very plain. He asks us to abstain from all kinds of evil, to accumulate all that is good and to purify our mind . These can be accomplished by The Three Trainings: the development of ethical conduct, meditation and ...
Buddhism is the philosophy of non-harm, of love and compassion for all sentient life. Siddhartha Gotama realised enlightenment, the true state of knowing at the age of 35, sitting under the famed Bodhi tree in northern India some 2,550 years ago. He shared his wisdom for another 45 years and gained many disciples and followers. He passed into what is termed parinirvana at the age of 80. He came to be know as Shakyamuni Buddha-the founder of Buddhism.. His teachings are founded on the realisation that all life is in suffering, that has identified causes, and a way to extinguish that suffering, by following, what he called the eight-fold path… these became known as the Four Noble Truths.. He explained how it is we are born, age and die in a relentless cycle called the Wheel of Life and by attaining enlightenment, the awareness of the true nature of ourselves, we can break that cycle and attain nirvana. He explained that our thoughts and actions determine what our future lives will be like, how ...
Jasbaku, as a physicists and Buddhist, I feel that its not really faith that would lead physicists to the truth seen by the Buddha, but its the same old way of meditation. The only faith needed is that meditation can lead one to see the truth. But nowadays there are many secular evidence of meditation being good for the mind that it reduces the role of that faith. Many physicists still view having faith in religion clouds the mind and make one deluded and self brain wash to see what one wants to see. Thus, it might be better to let secular research lead the path towards confidence in the power of meditation. And the subject of investigation and how to do it can be guided by the parallels between physics and Buddhism. Using convinent means to guide one to the truth. The guide is needed because one can still go to wrong view even with meditative experiences as seen in brahmajala sutta. Then again there is the faith element again. That this person without our modern equipment claims to have found ...

Conference overview: ​. Neuroscience, genetics, artificial intelligence, and other new technologies are expanding the scope of our collective knowledge and revolutionizing our society. These changes further shape our personal and spiritual lives: our happiness, our well-being, our enlightenment. Buddhisms long advocacy of technologies of awareness makes it instinctive to embrace these emerging technologies and incorporating them as an aid to attain greater wisdom. However, more often than not, these very technologies contribute to increasing levels of stress and anxiety for many in our generation. We envision that mental well-being should be facilitated with cutting-edge technology and principles of mindfulness. This year, Woodenfish Foundation is hosting its third annual Buddhism, Science, and Future conference in Shenzhen to both cultivate the link between mindfulness and technology, and make more accessible the discourse of mental health to Chinese families.. We are honored to convene ...

Welcome to Liberty Buddhism. Our journey towards enlightenment begins with the understanding that everything is interconnected. Everything is impermanent and interdependent. If you try to point out the essence of any thing, you will find that there is none.. Take fire for instance. Fire is impermanent. It is the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products. It requires heat, fuel, oxygen, and a chain reaction. The flame is the visible portion of the fire. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fires intensity will be different.. Similarly, look at a human. Humans are impermanent. Most of the cells in our bodies are different from year to year. While some cells last longer than others, they all eventually die. Like every fire, every human is unique. Even though twins share the same genetic code, their genes are expressed differently based on ...

Eastern Spirituality - definitions of Hindu & Buddhist spiritual terms. Many terms are matched to Hinduism and Buddhism video, audio & text links so they can be experienced in action.
Buddhism is often referred to as a philosophy or a way of life rather than a religion. In reality it is both. Although the Buddha was not a philosopher in the way the term is commonly understood, a Buddhist philosophy developed from his teachings that is profound, elusive, and subtle. Buddhism is also a complex, and multi-dimensional religious tradition that is far more diverse in traditions, practices, and doctrines than is generally realized. This unit introduces students to the rich tapestry of traditions, doctrines and practices that are found throughout the Buddhist world: both in their various traditional and modern contexts. In the traditional context we look at the history and practices of the major Buddhist schools and consider the claim of Buddhism being the first world religion. In the modern context we look at how adaptions of ancient Buddhist practices such as mindfulness and engaged Buddhism are impacting on contemporary worldviews. The unit also includes key approaches to ...

Thank you for this very interesting article. As a longterm Buddhist practitioner, I was struck that sutras stating that a Buddha can only be born a Brahmana or Kshatriya and can never come from any of the lower castes may have been taken historically to support caste hierarchy in Sinhala Buddhism. This is similar to what has happened in some parts of the Buddhist world on the basis of sutric statements that a woman can never become a samyaksambuddha: there being born female is regarded as substandard and females are automatically seen as inferior to males on the basis of it. Similar too are sutric statements that the native land of a samyaksambuddha is always Jambudvipa (commonly understood to be India), but this does not seem to bother the non-Indian Buddhist males who look down on women!. Siddhartha Gautama renounced contemporary caste-hierarchy in setting forth on his spiritual quest, and spiritual elitism assumed on the basis of caste is one of those customs that a stream-winner would ...
Nevertheless, despite its contemporary skew All is Change is still illuminating as a guide to the literature of Eurasias cultural development after the rise of the world religions. Though not an expert himself, Suttin does a good job of offering bite-sized summaries of the current state of scholarship in regards to questions about the possible influence of Buddhism upon Christianity, and Christianity upon Buddhism. The reality seems to be that the exact answer to most of these questions are not extractable from the morass of human history, the possibility remains that features of Buddhism such as monasticism might have played a role in serving as an indirect template for early Christianity. Or, inversely, that Nestorian Christianity, or religions influenced by this eastern variant of Christianity such as Manichaeanism, may have played a role in the genesis of Pure Land Buddhism, whose evangelical flavor and theistic bent have long been observed by Westerners as at least superficially ...
Buddhist philosophers argue that there is no general entity, such as a universal, which is responsible for the fact that we can apply a term, such as pot, to more than one particular. They argue this because they believe that only momentary particulars exist. Dividing the world into enduring substantial objects that can be classified according to their differing natures is at best a useful illusion, according to Buddhists. The issue then becomes how to explain the fact that we refer to seemingly enduring entities in our language. Buddhists claim that when we use the term pot as a general concept, we refer to every individual that is not a non-pot. This is the distinctive feature of the Buddhist apoha theory, as mentioned in the above quote. The advantage of this theory for Buddhists is that it does not require any general essence that all pots have to share. Instead, the term pot refers as the result of a double negation... ...

So this week weve been learning a ton about Buddhism and Kung Fu. Now to be honest, I really didnt know much about Buddhism other than karma and the fact that Madonna is Buddhist. As many of the boys on the trip would say, ooooh jeepers!. So anyways, we met with a Monk and he pretty much told us everything there was to know about Buddhism, in a nut shell of course. The founder- he decides to meditate for nine years, umm let me repeat that NINE YEARS. I can hardly sit still in church for an hour and this guy goes and meditates for that long? Thats commitment my friend.. Ive learned three very importand things about Buddhism. Here we go:. 1- Buddha is not their god, hes a role model. Often times people (including Buddhists) think that Buddha is someone that you worship, and thats not true at all. Hes just a guy who really knows what hes doinga, kind of like a Saint for the Catholic religion. You see a bunch of statues at Saint Thomas of Saints that were role models, but you dont ...
Buddhism was at one time the religion of the majority of the people of India. It continued to be the religion of the masses for hundreds of years. It attacked Brahmanism on all sides as no religion had done before. Brahmanism was on the wane and if not on the wane, it was certainly on the defensive. As a result of the spread of Buddhism, the Brahmins had lost all power and prestige at the Royal Court and among the people. They were smarting under the defeat they had suffered at the hands of Buddhism and were making all possible efforts to regain their power and prestige. Buddhism had made so deep an impression on the minds of the masses and had taken such a hold of them that it was absolutely impossible for the Brahmins to fight the Buddhists except by accepting their ways and means and practising the Buddhist creed in its extreme form. After the death of Buddha his followers started setting up the images of the Buddha and building stupas. The Brahmins followed it. They, in their turn, built ...
Buddhist chronicles have long been had a central place in the study of Buddhism. Scholars, however, have relied almost exclusively on Pali works that were composed by elites for learned audiences, to the neglect of a large number of Buddhist histories written in local languages for popular consumption. The Sinhala Thūpavaṃsa, composed by Parakama Pandita in 13th-century Sri Lanka, is an important example of a Buddhist chronicle written in the vernacular Sinhala language. Furthermore, it is among those works that inform public discussion and debate over the place of Buddhism in the Sri Lankan nation state and the role of Buddhist monks in contemporary politics. This book offers the first complete English translation of the Sinhala Thūpavaṃsa. Composed in a literary dialect of Sinhala, it contains a richly descriptive account of how Buddhism spread outside of India, replete with poetic embellishments and interpolations not found in other accounts of those events. Aside from being an important
This dictionary features broad-ranging entries on the history and doctrines of the major Buddhist schools, information on the spread of Buddhism in Asia and the West, and coverage of issues of contemporary concern such as human rights, abortion, euthanasia, engaged Buddhism, and the role of women in Buddhist teachings.
To which I would simply add, why do we need to speak of spiritual DNA or moral identity in order to make sense of Buddhism? These categories themselves seem equally prone to fixation and quite contrary to the basic notion of anatta. In other words, I would argue that like all the other groups -- form, sensation, and the like -- vi~n~naa.na also does not endure, either across or within lifetimes. None of the groups do, and this is the essential feature of the anattaa doctrine. Hence, I would not equate vi~n~naa.na in the state of transition with anything, much less the gandhabba, simply because it is not transitional. (10). Keown makes much of the gandhabbas essential role in the process of conception as portrayed in various Buddhist sources, interpreting the descent of the intermediate being when biological conditions at the time of conception are just right as offering what looks very much like an account of ensoulment. Such a strategy then justifies Keowns claim that for Buddhists in ...
As my own blog posts have revealed, my principal engagement with the valuing of wilderness came not through the environment movement, but through my life in Papua New Guinea and work with the Aboriginal elder, Tjilpi Bob Randall on the one hand, and my spiritual journeys into ways of knowing in the experiential methods of Tibetan Buddhism, on the other. At the same time, my postgraduate studies in science and technology studies introduced me to the feminist critique of the masculinity of the scientific rationalist project, its objectification of nature and its binary approach to understanding the nature of reality.. Catherine and I attended the same three year retreat at Lerab Ling, and undertook the same intensive practices in the Tantric Buddhist tradition. Each of us experience these in our own way, but for both of us we have had the direct, visceral experience of this inner-outer experience of relationship with the natural world. I think this has enabled us to break through the cultural ...
For me these perspectives inform my experience as a Zen Buddhist. And, I am not alone in this. I just googled the two terms Spinoza and Buddhism. It instantly provided 367,000 results. There I found a blog quoting an interview with professor of philosophy and Spinoza biographer Rebecca Goldstein, which spells out succinctly what the deal is:. Interviewer: Spinozas philosophy has strong similarities to Buddhism - most notably the concept that any notion of a separate and distinct self is an illusion. Buddhisms method for understanding that truth is to turn off the mind, while Spinozas is to rigorously engage the mind. Goldstein: The final viewpoint that Spinoza comes to has a great deal in common with Buddhism. (A friend to whom I was once explaining Spinoza quipped, Oh, youre telling me that Baruch was the first Bu-Jew.) But of course Spinozas methodology is entirely different, as you point out, placing all its trust in the deductive processes of logic. Since the world itself is ...
I havent read A Manual of the Excellent Man, natural elements here I assumed you mean chemicals. If these chemicals are pulled together, without the man, can they think, i.e., inject these chemicals into a sole brain, or a highly sophisticated robot? Thus mind is definitely not chemical, although chemicals activities may relate to the process of thinking. Second, Buddhist doesnt view material as material, like the science way of material formed by atom, atom combined by electron and proton... baron, quark... etc. Material appears because the Aware (覺) stagnated (attached), combined by collected logos (names) stored in the 8th vijnana. Buddha used a metaphor in Surangama Sutra, that someone who looked at the empty space for long long time and worn out, he started to see flowers (sparkles of lights etc.) in the sky. Because of habitual in many many lives, this material interacted with us, like it has its own property. Like someone walking on a path with a hole on it, after many ...
I am interested in the Bodhisattva ideal of Theravada Buddhism and have a question regarding the eight qualifications through which the aspiration for Buddhahood succeeds. According to the Treatise on the Paramis by Acariya Dhammapala it is stated that the eight qualifications for aspiration to Buddhahood can only succeed when eight factors are met. The eight qualifications through which the aspiration succeeds are: the human state, the male sex, the cause, the sight of the Master, the going forth, the achievement of noble qualities, extreme dedication, and strong desire (Bv. IIA,v.59). Now the fourth qualification is making the aspiration for Buddhahood in the presence of a living Buddha. Does this mean that those who aspire for Buddhahood and are practicing the Bodhisattva path today are practicing in vain? Is the Bodhisattva path a viable option for buddhists today? Are these qualifications found in Mahayana literature? Could it be that in a former life i have already completed this ...
Buddhism is a great religion, which enlightened humanity twenty-five centuries ago and released from all bondages, superstitious practices. It is a scientific religion. Gotama the Buddha is honored today by every cultured and intellectual man irrespective of whatever religion he may profess, while the founders of most of the other religions are honored only by their followers. Not only those who belong to some religions but also so-called free thinkers respect this world honored Supreme Enlightened One. From the historical point of view there never lived any other Teacher who has ever given so much religious freedom as well as due credit to humanity. Before the advent of the Buddha, religion had been owned and monopolized only by a certain section of the society. The Buddha was the Teacher in history who indiscriminately opened the gate of religion to each and every man in society. The Buddha has advised his followers to cultivate and develop the latent power of man and showed him how to make ...
Geographically Tibet is obviously within the borders of the modern Chinese nation-state (though Ladakh in India is arguably a fragment of Tibet which landed on the Indian side of the border). But recall that for most of its history Tibet has not been under Chinese rule. Perhaps even more importantly, Tibet has not been under much Chinese influence. On the contrary, Tibetan lamas have been cultural impresarios, exporting their religious vision to the court of Kublai Khan, then that of the Manchus, and the finally converting the Khans of the various Mongol tribes.. And in terms of its precursors, Tibetan Buddhism is the child of the last flowering of North Indian Buddhism, not Chinese Buddhism, which had evolved into an independent tradition by the time the Tibetan Empire was deciding on an institutional religion to adhere to (Chinese Buddhism was reputedly brought to the kingdom first, by a Chinese princess).*** And the Tibetan alphabet is also derived from an Indian script. Curiously, just as ...
Two researchers of Buddhism studied hundreds of Buddhism-related apps and conclude that they tend to mask the symptoms of stress rather than fundamentally addressing the root problem.
In your case, if youre using social media to ease loneliness, its like postponing the resolution of suffering to a latter date. Instead of focusing on the cause of your loneliness, youre focusing on social media. You think you need social media to ease loneliness. In reality you most probably dont need social media ... you just need to get rid of loneliness. Once youll get rid of loneliness, youll probably stop spending time on social media. What youre experiencing is normal suffering due to loneliness. Psychologists will tell you its normal as long as it does not interfere negatively on your physical or mental health. Most people do something to ease feelings of loneliness (make new friends, read, do sports, watch TV, ..). But thats not curing loneliness. Its like having a disease and alleviating its symptoms. This is no different than being depressive and drinking alcohol to ease the depression. Off course its not dysfunctional as drinking alcohol, but the mechanism is the same: you ...

CHILD ABUSE IN SRI LANKA. ON MY LAST VISIT TO SRI LANKA ON DECEMBER 2004 TO THE SOUTHERN PART OF SRI LANKA I CAME TO KNOW THAT CHILDREN UNDER AGE OF 7 ARE FORCED TO JOIN THE BUDDHIST MONASTRIES AND TEMPLES.

NO ONE QUESTIONS THEM AS BUDDHIST RELIGION IS THE STATE RELIGION IN SRI LANKA. :(. ...
Buddhist Diet Plan - Have Vegan Diet for Healthier and Happier Body. Buddhist diet plan has connected diet with karma. Buddhism is a vegan diet plan.
An idealized view of the lifestyle of a Buddhist monk might be described according to the doctrinal demand for emotional detachment and, ultimately, the cessation of all desire. Yet monks are also enjoined to practice compassion, a powerful emotion and equally lofty ideal, and live with every other human feeling-love, hate, jealousy, ambition-while relating to other monks and the lay community. In this important ethnography of Buddhism in Sri Lanka, Jeffrey Samuels takes an unprecedented look at how emotion determines and influences the commitments that laypeople and monastics make to each other and to the Buddhist religion in general. By focusing on multimoment histories, Samuels highlights specific junctures in which ideas about recruitment, vocation, patronage, and institution-building are dynamically negotiated and refined. Positing a nexus between aesthetics and affect, he illustrates not only how aesthetic responses trigger certain emotions, but also how personal and shared emotions, at ...

The Silk Roads were fundamental in the dissemination of religions throughout Eurasia. Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism and Manicheism spread across this vast region via both land and maritime routes, as travellers absorbed elements of the new cultures they encountered and carried them back to their homelands with them. Thus, for example, Hinduism and subsequently Islam were introduced into Indonesia and Malaysia by Silk Roads merchants travelling the maritime trade routes from the Indian subcontinent and Arabian Peninsula. Similarly, Buddhism was introduced to parts of China, South East Asia and the Korean Peninsula from its origins in the Indian Subcontinent. Some of those travelling the Silk Roads returned home after completing their endeavours whilst others settled permanently, constructing their own religious sites and monuments many of which survive today.. Amongst some of the first cultural elements to reach the Korean Peninsula from the western regions of Central ...
Recorded history began in what is now Central Java in the 7th century AD. The writing, as well as Hinduism and Buddhism, were brought by the Indians from South Asia, at the time of Central Java was a centre of power in Java back then. In 664 AD, the Chinese monk Hui-neng visited the Javanese port city he called Hēlíng (訶陵) or Ho-ling, where he translated various Buddhist scriptures into Chinese with the assistance of the Javanese Buddhist monk Jñānabhadra. It is not precisely known what is meant by the name Hēlíng. It used to be considered the Chinese transcription of Kalinga but it now most commonly thought of as a rendering of the name Areng. Hēlíng is believed to be located somewhere between Semarang and Jepara. The first dated inscription in Central Java was the Canggal from 732 AD (or 654 Saka). This inscription, which hailed from Kedu, is written in Sanskrit in Pallava script. It is written that a Shaivite king named Sri Sanjaya established a kingdom called Mataram. Under the ...
What if spirituality as we know it, does not exist on the plane of scientific fields of enquiry? What if looking into spirituality with a scientific gaze is like trying to read Greek, knowing only Latin. I think a lot of people are starting to agree that spirituality is socially constructed. That does not make it bad or useless though, by any stretch of the imagination. Does our current state of affairs mean that any belief or practice which is not scietifically validated is to be discarded? Ultimately, art therapy will do what the Dalai Lama is doing with Buddhism. It will surrender to science and science will prove art therapys foundation in objectively veryfiable information. The Dalai Lama is surrendering Buddhist monks to sciences fMRI machines so that the effects of meditation can be examined in the brain. The hope and the data suggest that meditation changes your brain in a positive way. The hope and the data suggest that there is scientific support in favour of a Buddhist or meditative ...
The historical drawing of grand master Bodhidharma in the ShaoLin Temple - a memorial stone Carving.. The Grand Master was born in the south part of India. He came to China to spread Buddhism in approximately 520 B.C., the time of Northern and Southern Dynasties. He spent 9 years in a cave of the ShaoLin Temple to search the truth of life, and he was the first grand Master of Zen School Teaching of Buddhism.. The Book of The Tendon Changing Classic was written by the Grand Master, so is at least 1500 years old. This book and its theory have influenced almost all aspects of chinese martial arts, including health promotion and many kinds of spiritual cultivation.. Only Grand Master Bodhidharma had the depth of personal cultivation to come to an understanding on the truth of human life.. Also only he who had been with the truth or Dao was able to treat all human beings and all living creatures as his own children, and was able to write down the truth of life.. 2) History of the TCC.

My names Gesshin. Im a Soto Zen nun living in Japan. I was born in 1986, so I wouldnt say being a Zen nun is an easy or natural thing for me to do at all. I spent about four and a half years in monasteries, not thinking or writing about anything, so now that Im out in the world again Im thinking and writing about a lot. This blog started out as a way to communicate with friends and family back home and post silly pictures of weird Japanese things, but it kind of became a blog about Buddhism because Buddhism is the only thing I really do or care about, besides talking to my mom and reading novels. Sorry. I dont have any other hobbies or interests. Let me know if you want silly pictures of weird Japanese things, and I can send them to you ...

The Enlightened Kitchen: Fresh Vegetable Dishes from the Temples of Japan by Mari Fujii is a beautifully presented, easy introduction to the world of shojin ryori (or shoujin ryouri 精進料理), the highly refined vegan cuisine developed by Buddhist monks in Japan. Ive often been asked by readers of this site and other people to recommend a good shojin ryori book: While there are many such books in Japanese, I havent really been comfortable recommending a book in English so far. Shojin ryori tends to use a lot of ingredients that are only available in Japan - even more so than regular Japanese cooking - and it is a haute cuisine that requires a lot of skill.. The Enlightened Kitchen, on the other hand, is filled with nonintimidating recipes, that any amateur cook with decent access to Japanese ingredients could tackle. Some of the vegetables and dried ingredients may trip you up, but its easy to think up suitable substitions. The author, Mari Fujii, is married to a Buddhist monk, and has ...

Detail: Within the Buddhist traditions of the Himalayas, three bodhisattvas emerge as personifications of Buddhist ideals. Manjushri, who cuts through ignorance and personifies correct knowledge; Avalokiteshvara, a compassionate protector of the devout that helps reveal the true nature of reality; and Vajrapani as the embodiment of the energy of enlightenment. Focusing on dramatic images, a worshipper could first evoke the subtle knowledge that Manjushri personifies, then with Avalokiteshvaras aid, it is possible to proceed in a way free from self-imposed delusions, while Vajrapanis transcendent power aids in destroying jealousy and hatred that stand in the way of enlightenment. Venerating these three bodhisattvas together has a long history, and they play an essential role in the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet. This exhibition draws together a dramatic group of paintings, sculptures, ritual objects, and illustrated manuscripts from the eleventh to eighteenth centuries, made primarily for ...
While there are some similar meditative practices - such as breath meditation and various recollections (anussati) - that are used across Buddhist schools, there is also significant diversity. In the Theravāda tradition alone, there are over fifty methods for developing mindfulness and forty for developing concentration, while in the Tibetan tradition there are thousands of visualization meditations.{{Goldstein (2003) writes that, in regard to the Satipatthana Sutta, there are more than fifty different practices outlined in this Sutta. The meditations that derive from these foundations of mindfulness are called vipassana..., and in one form or another - and by whatever name - are found in all the major Buddhist traditions (p. 92). The forty concentrative meditation subjects refer to Visuddhimaggas oft-referenced enumeration. Regarding Tibetan visualizations, Kamalashila (2003), writes: The Tara meditation ... is one example out of thousands of subjects for visualization meditation, each one ...
When I talk about American Christianity, I am referring specifically to a brand of Christianity that has wholly adopted the postmodern, hedonistic, individualistic, relativistic, pluralistic mindset that comprises a very magnanimous portion of American philosophy. In other words, American Christianity is not Christianity in any sense of the word. American Christianity is a godless philosophical system immersed in idolatry. It is postmodern in the sense that truth is what the individual decides it is regardless of the facts. It is hedonistic in the sense that it aims to engender as much pleasure as the individual determines is satisfactory. It is individualistic in the sense that believers do not submit to their church leaders or the Christian group in any true sense whatever. The individual decides who their leader will be and as long as that leader operates within the individuals own self-determined parameters, they are extended the privilege to remain in the position of leader. If a church ...

For centuries, wherever Thai Buddhists have made their homes, statues of the Buddha have provided striking testament to the role of Buddhism in the lives of the people. |i>The Buddha in Lanna|/i> offers the first in-depth historical study of the Thai tradition of donation of Buddha statues. Drawing on palm-leaf manuscripts and inscriptions, many never previously translated into English, the book reveals the key roles that Thai Buddha images have played in the social and economic worlds of their makers and devotees from the fifteenth to twentieth centuries.|p>Author Angela Chiu introduces stories from chronicles, histories, and legends written by monks in Lanna, a region centered in todays northern Thailand. By examining the stories themes, structures, and motifs, she illuminates the complex conceptual and material aspects of Buddha images that influenced their functions in Lanna society. Buddha images were depicted as social agents and mediators, the focal points of pan-regional political-religious
By Miguel Farias and Catherine Wikholm. TWITCHING, trembling, panic, disorientation, hallucinations, terror, depression, mania and psychotic breakdown - these are some of the reported effects of meditation. Surprised? We were too.. Techniques such as transcendental meditation and mindfulness are promoted as ways of quieting the mind, alleviating pain and anxiety, and even transforming you into a happier and more compassionate person: natural cure-alls without adverse effects. But happiness and de-stressing were not what meditation techniques, with their Buddhist and Hindu roots, were originally developed for. The purpose of meditation was much more radical: to challenge and rupture the idea of who you are, shaking ones sense of self to the core so you realise there is nothing there (Buddhism) or no real differentiation between you and the rest of the universe (Hinduism). So perhaps it is not. ...

Sky burial (Tibetan: བྱ་གཏོར་, Wylie: bya gtor, lit. bird-scattered) is a funeral practice in which a human corpse is placed on a mountaintop to decompose while exposed to the elements or to be eaten by scavenging animals, especially carrion birds. It is a specific type of the general practice of excarnation. It is practiced in the Chinese provinces and autonomous regions of Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan and Inner Mongolia, as well as in Mongolia, Bhutan and parts of India such as Sikkim and Zanskar. The locations of preparation and sky burial are understood in the Vajrayana Buddhist traditions as charnel grounds. Comparable practices are part of Zoroastrian burial practices where deceased are exposed to the elements and birds of prey on stone structures called Dakhma. Few such places remain operational today due to religious marginalisation, urbanisation and the decimation of vulture populations. The majority of Tibetan people and many Mongols adhere to Vajrayana Buddhism, which ...
The early Buddhist canon written in Pali comprises some 4 million words of text written across several centuries in early India. As such, it is of interest not only to scholars of Buddhism but also linguists and historians for the insight it gives into the social, linguistic, and religious culture of the time. Such insights are hindered however by the fact that it is difficult to determine which texts refer to which historical period. Previous attempts at this determination have relied on impressionistic or poorly-defined criteria, or have been extremely limited in the number of texts they classify. With the advent of electronic corpora, however, it becomes possible to do rigorous large-scale studies on the Canon. This study examines the evidence found in the aorist system of the Pali language. This system was undergoing a great deal of flux at the time as it changed from the complex system used earlier in India to the much simpler system used later. I examine five different types of aorists and ...
This manual incorporates detailed protocols, photos, links to online videos, marketing strategies, personal stories, and resources to encourage a comprehensive understanding of self care modalities beneficial for yourself and your massage practice..

It has afforded me the opportunity to focus inward, deeply rejuvenate, gain valuable insights, heighten my well-being, and expand the depth with which I can connect inwardly and with those around me.. I initially came to meditation through music. I had a friend in college who was a musician and he invited me to go with him when he performed for a meditation group near my home. The group focused on the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, a prominent spiritual teacher from India, as well as teachings from Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, the Native American traditions, Hinduism, and many other religions.

Christians and Americans different from Japanese. But here too the core experiences were the same. There are obviously two sides of the story. One must look at both sides with careful eye and determine for they what they believe is true. This is where the idea of reincarnation comes in. Because it is 7 incorporated in so many religions, you find an answer to a question, which you truly want to know the answer to, and do not abandon your faith in doing so. Reincarnation is detected in many religions. Reincarnation is normally thought of as a Hindu philosophy and it is traced back to Hinduism, yet it can be found in Judaism, Christianity, and Buddhism and in many more religions. In Judaism, reincarnation is known as Gilgul. Though it has a different name it has almost the exact same meaning. Gilgul was a dominant teaching in Judaism for over three hundred years. Cabala, a book of Judaism, which is often, studied by Rabbiâ⠬⠢s, one of the holy books of the Jews which talks of ...
Former Department Head. A major in Religious Studies is both exciting and practical. Religion is a key component of every culture, and a major in Religious Studies involves wide-ranging reading in literature, history, politics, and social systems. Religious Studies not only prepares students for graduate study and teaching in the field, or for professional service within religious organizations, it also provides skills that lead to careers in a wide variety of areas.. As a major you will study the history of your own and others religious traditions, rituals and social practices; the political, cultural, and economic impact of religion; and the varieties of religious ethics. You will also learn to read critically, write persuasively, and speak with force.The Department teaches courses on such traditions as Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shinto, and Taoism. Historical studies include courses about religions of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and America. ...
Meta-reviews, large scale analyses of suicide risk have helped shed some evidence on the connection between religion and suicide.. Lawrence, Oquendo & Stanley (2016) noted that suicide and religion are both complex dimensions (e.g. suicide ideation versus attempts versus death, religious affiliation versus attendance.) Being part of a majority religious community was found to be a greater protective factor against suicide than a minority community, but that attending religious services was not as important as having social supports (whether religious or not.). Norko et. al. (2017) noted that all major faith communities (including Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, and Christianity) have strong objections to suicide.. In Lawrence et. al. (2016) a sample of clinically depressed patients in a hospital setting were found to have a higher rate of suicidality if they identified a religious affiliation, the more they attended religious services, and the more they indicated religion was ...
Again, back to the question: Am I a religious person? Religion - in my view, these are the beliefs that exists. Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Taoism, Islam, and many other religions around the world. Denomination, particularly Christian denominations are the churches that practice Christianity- Catholic, Methodist, Born Again, Protestant, and others (lots of them actually). I am a Christian- I was born a Christian, but I dont belong to any of these denominations mentioned (though as per my brother, Im still listed as a member at my former church). Dont hate me, I respect the teachings of every church, I dont have anything against it. I still think that having a meaningful spiritual life does good to people. I just dont practice it, as I had doubts in the Christian teaching of divine existence. And in the past couple of years I began to wonder and appreciate the ancient alien theory wherein foreign life from another world/universe gave us the knowledge and taught us to expand our ...

AUM symbolizes the Eastern religious traditions of which Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism (where onkar=OM+kar is used) are well known, AUM is considered as the holy word, it is also called the sound of creation.. AMEN symbolizes the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity,Islam (where amin is used, which is a variant of amen) and others. Amen is used at the end of prayers or speeches as a declaration of affirmation.. Each religion is a path (way of life) to reach god (divinity/immortality/liberation), though the different roads of religions appear to be diverging, they must finally join the spiritual highway which leads to divinity.

Scope of writings In the midst of all this distraction, worry and harassment, and in spite of the persecution, which sometimes took a very serious form, he went on wielding his pen with incomparable facility and added seven thousand pages of very valuable literature to the eight hundred pages written in his earlier life which had gained him the reputation of being the greatest religious writer of his time.

We must commit ourselves, heart and mind, soul and will, personally and unreservedly, to Jesus Christ. We must humble ourselves before him. We must trust him as our Savior and submit to him as our Lord; and then go on to take our place as loyal members of the church and responsible citizens in the community. This is basic Christianity, the theme of this book. With these words, world-renowned preacher John Stott embarks on a compelling study that first defends the basic claims of Christianity and then defines the proper outworkings of those main beliefs in the daily lives of believers.

Named one of the Top 100 Books of the Millennium by World magazine and listed among Christianity Todays Top 100 Books of the 20th Century, Basic Christianity has had huge impact on countless readers worldwide over the past fifty years. This special new edition continues the Stott legacy. Basic
