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)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Although like Jainism, the concept of Ahimsa in Buddhism is also connected to self-control and discipline, 14 and to a large extent, with the unique principle of "parasparopgraho jivanam",15 but, neither Buddhism and nor Gautama Buddha himself brings non-violence within the scope of superfluous rigidity. Despite accepting Ahimsa as the supreme human value16 and declaring it to be the most precious jewel of humanity, Buddhism lays great stress on its practical aspects so that it could be feasible to common man. That is why; Buddhism calls for making Ahimsa an indivisible part of day-to-day human practices in its refined form as per the demand of time. During the lifetime of Buddha, Karuna, i.e. compassion [union of pity and friendliness] was the best and practical reflection of non-violence. It was loving kindness towards all beings [Metta]. Moreover, it was itself a dimension of the theory of Ahimsa on the one hand, and recognition to the right to live of each and every living being on the ...

That is why; Buddhism calls for making Ahimsa an indivisible part of day-to-day human practices in its refined form as per the demand of time. During the lifetime of Buddha, Karuna, i.e. compassion [union of pity and friendliness] was the best and practical reflection of non-violence. It was loving kindness towards all beings [Metta]. Moreover, it was itself a dimension of the theory of Ahimsa on the one hand, and recognition to the right to live of each and every living being on the ...
Buddhism teaches that all things are in a constant state of flux: all is changing, and no permanent state exists by itself.[10][11] This applies to human beings as much as to anything else in the cosmos. Thus, a human being has no permanent self.[12][13] According to this doctrine of anatta (Pāli; Sanskrit: anātman) - "no-self" or "no soul" - the words "I" or "me" do not refer to any fixed thing. They are simply convenient terms that allow us to refer to an ever-changing entity.[14]. The anatta doctrine is not a kind of materialism. Buddhism does not deny the existence of "immaterial" entities, and it (at least traditionally) distinguishes bodily states from mental states.[15] Thus, the conventional translation of anatta as "no-soul"[16] can be confusing. If the word "soul" simply refers to an incorporeal component in living things that can continue after death, then Buddhism does not deny the existence of the soul.[17] Instead, Buddhism denies the existence of a permanent entity that remains ...

Vajon a tudat csupán az emberi agy fizikai folyamatainak tiszavirág életű mellékhatása? Léteznek vajon olyan finom tudatformák, amelyeket a tudomány még nem volt képes azonosítani?

Okay, so he finds it very puzzling that when you say that Buddhism cannot offer what Christianity can, and that Tiger Woods should turn to it to get what he badly needs, then Buddhist take it in a bad way? Hume, you twit, you were glorifying Christ on TV, and there is no getting away with it. Imagine for a moment a Buddhist saying about a Christian golfer who slept around that Christianity may call such behavior a sin, but if he turns to Buddhism, then he wouldnt need forgiveness in the first place, because sleeping around is not a sin, because there are no sins in Buddhism, and therefore Buddha is someone this golfer badly needs. This would not upset a multitude of Christians? Oh yes it would, in a bad way. I wouldnt be surprised if it lead to violent repercussions against Buddhist temples in America ...

This cross-sectional study, the first of its kind, uses baseline data on smoking prevalence among Buddhist monks in Northern and Central provinces of Lao PDR. Between March and September 2006, 390 monks were interviewed, using questionnaires, to assess smoking prevalence including determinants, knowledge and attitudes. Data entry was performed with Epi-Info (version 6.04) and data analysis with SPSS version 11. Descriptive analysis was employed for all independent and dependent variables. Chi-square or Fishers exact test were used for categorical variables to compare smoking status, knowledge, attitudes and province. Logistic regression was applied to identify determinants of smoking. Daily current smoking was 11.8%. Controlling for confounding variables, age at start of monkhood and the length of religious education were significant determinants of smoking. The majority of the monks 67.9% were in favor of the idea that offerings of cigarettes should be prohibited and that they should refuse the
I think the Abstract is a little balled-up. It says:. "The article examines aspects of Daoism in the Western countries and the role of Buddhism and Christianity as religious models. It mentions the effect of Christian principles which include the acceptance of the wisdom of the Bible while discarding old Daoists theories about how the world operates. It also examines changes on how Daoists operate which influenced by technological innovations like social networking and Western infrastructure.". it might be more accurate if it said the following:. "The article examines aspects of Buddhism and Christianity as religious theory and how that affects the organizational structure of their religious communities. Specifically, it discusses the relationship between Christian authority and scientific truth, and, the basis of Buddhist ecclesiastic authority and personal autonomy. It suggests that religious Daoists learn from the previous mistakes of both Christian and Buddhist communities, and develop a ...
Lives of the Nuns, a collection of brief stories of notable Chinese Buddhist ordained women, comes from a world long gone and far away: China in the first flowering of Buddhism fifteen hundred years ago. Before the Lives, compiled by a literary monk of that era, we have only one volume on the community of Buddhist women, the Therigatha, which reports on a time almost a thousand years earlier, in India. The Indian women of the Therigatha had mostly lived simple lives before joining the sangha of ordained women. The Chinese women of the Lives, on the other hand, are mostly upper class and well-educated.. Some of these women became effective and influential teachers. We read of nuns having four hundred disciples, one with never fewer than a hundred under her at a time, and others instructing seven hundred on the monastic rule. One is noted as a witty and popular lecturer, while another was so effective a teacher that "students…gathered around her like clouds, causing the Buddhist religion to ...

Buddhism and Shaivism have interacted and influenced each other since ancient times, in both South Asia and Southeast Asia. Their Siddhas and esoteric traditions, in particular, have overlapped to an extent where Buddhists and Hindus would worship in the same temple such as in the Seto Machindranath. In southeast Asia, the two traditions were not presented in competitive or polemical terms, rather as two alternate paths that lead to the same goals of liberation, with theologians disagreeing which of these is faster and simpler.[285] Scholars disagree whether a syncretic tradition emerged from Buddhism and Shaivism, or it was a coalition with free borrowing of ideas, but they agree that the two traditions co-existed peacefully.[286]. The earliest evidence of a close relationship between Shaivism and Buddhism comes from the archaeological sites and damaged sculptures from the northwest Indian subcontinent, such as Gandhara. These are dated to about the 1st-century CE, with Shiva depicted in ...

Animal welfare and rights in Japan is about the laws concerning and treatment of animals in Japan. Japan has had a national animal welfare law since 1973, but its protections for animals are weak by international standards. Animal activism in Japan is focused on the welfare of companion animals. Buddhism was officially introduced to Japan in the 6th century CE. A central teaching of Buddhism is ahimsa, or nonviolence towards all living things, and its proscriptions against killing animals and encouragement of vegetarianism were highly influential in several periods of Japanese history. In 675, Emperor Tenmu banned the consumption of meat (with exceptions for fish and wild animals) due to his devout Buddhism, though the ban seems not to have been well-observed. Meat was reintroduced when Christian missionaries from Portugal and Netherlands arrived in Japan (beginning in the 16th century with their omnivorous diets. The ban on eating meat was reinstated in 1687 under the Buddhist Tokugawa ...

There is something about this that worries me. While Buddhism is vastly different form Abrahamic religions many of the more militant forms of these religions have their foundation in a belief that their faith is under attack and being disrespected. This foundation seems to be starting down this road. Who will hear of their movement? Why should they care about their desires? Trying to control what other people do goes against everything I have learned from Buddhism, so why are they bothering. Also, if no one listens, what then? It seems better to simply teach those closer to their community these values and let the rest of the world come around in time. With so many people witnessing religious violence and hatred from the Abrahamic religions many are tried and looking for other sources of strength. Wouldnt Buddhism be one of those that they turn to ...

A Few Good Men is a study and translation of The Inquiry of Ugra (Ugrapariprccha), one of the most influential Mahayana sutras on the bodhisattva path, but also one of the most neglected texts in Western treatments of Buddhism. To achieve a better understanding of the universe of ideas, activities, and institutional structures within which early self-proclaimed bodhisattvas lived, the author first considers the Ugra as a literary document, employing new methodological tools to examine the genre to which it belongs, the age of its extant versions, and their relationships to one another. She goes on to challenge the dominant notions that the Mahayana emerged as a reform of earlier Buddhism and offered lay people an easier option.A Few Good Men will be compelling reading for scholars and practitioners alike and others interested in the history of Indian Buddhism and the formation of Mahayana.
Impulsively, I rubbed Matthieu Ricards head on the beach in Rio De Janeiro. This is not as weird as it sounds. He is incredibly joyful, perhaps equally as much as his teacher Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. We were at TED Global and because I knew of Ricards work, I had been trying to meet him, but he was constantly mobbed. When I spotted him walking alone, I said, "Matthieu, I have been looking for you!" He replied, "Paul, I have been looking for you." We hugged and talked science, and then the speaker concierge from TED tried to pull him away to do his "hair and makeup" preparation before his talk. Rubbing his bald head, I refused to let him get away from me that fast. Having met Ricard and knowing Wolf Singers research, I was delighted to learn of their book three years later. Ricard earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology and is a Buddhist monk who lives in a monastery in Nepal. He has participated in, and co-authored, neuroscientific studies of meditation, and Beyond the Self reflects ...
Nepal has reversed a decision to allow a monk prominent in Tibetan Buddhism to be cremated on its soil after what media reports said was pressure from China and his organisation said on Monday they were in talks with the government in Kathmandu.
This book examines a little-known genre of Tibetan narrative literature about the délok, ordinary men and women who claim to have died, traveled through hell, and then returned from the afterlife. These narratives enjoy audiences ranging from the most sophisticated monastic scholars to pious townsfolk, villagers, and nomads. Their accounts emphasize the universal Buddhist principles of impermanence and worldly suffering, the fluctuations of karma, and the feasibility of obtaining a favorable rebirth through virtue and merit. Providing an analysis of four return-from-death tales, including the stories of a Tibetan housewife, a lama, a young noble woman, and a Buddhist monk, the author argues that these narratives express ideas about death and the afterlife that held wide currency among all classes of faithful Buddhists in Tibet. Relying on a diversity of traditional Tibetan sources, Buddhist canonical scriptures, scholastic textbooks, ritual and meditation manuals, and medical treatises, in addition to

Here are some of the original Buddhist Keys of Awakening.. Buddhism was not to ever incorporate any actual denial of GOD, as Buddhists, you will notice, have a distinct imminent strangeness in the way they act when you see their secret mysteries. Their doctrine is; "there is no GOD." It is the mirror doctrine of others denial. The Buddhis doctrine is actually set to the tune of; "we are not ourselves, we are those who deny GOD." Thus they do not actually deny GOD in true Buddhist doctrine, but rather refrain from speaking about GOD. It is also known as the mouse trap, as Buddha is seen as the Great White Elephant, and we have to be justified in speaking about it. The Elephant is said to be scared of the mouse, so they set up the trap for if they say that that is what they were doing also. Buddhism is said to be from India. Some people thought that the king of the enemies was riding it, yet it was one of Gods. The elephant was in the middle path. "Cross reference the Good News Translation and ...
The recent book "Why Buddhism Is True" by Robert Wright (mentioned in this thread) is very much in line with this philosophical trend. He likens the decision to mediate in a mindful way to the decision faced by Neo in the Matrix: to keep living a delusion or wake up to reality ... the red pill? or the blue pill? Current scientific views in neuroscience evidently match up very well with Buddhist philosophy. Wright touches on some of this science. Sam Harris (a neuroscientist) in his book "Waking Up" also explains a iength how current science is finally validating a 2500 year old view of the nature of the human mind. Earlier books in this secular Buddhist vein are anything by Jon Kabatt-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which has had great clinical success in the treatment of stress related disease. JKZ basically was a practicant of Zen Buddhism who very carefully secularized standard Zen teachings and made them available to the non-Buddhist public. Another westerner ...

In the Gospel according to Saint John, chapter 9, there is an interesting story about Jesus and a man blind from birth. When the disciples see the blind man, they ask Jesus, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?" Jesus answers them by saying, "It was neither that this man sinned nor his parents; but it was in order that the works of God might be displayed in him." The passage is interesting, because the disciples are asking about the nature of karma, the law of cause and effect. The disciples are asking which theory of karma is correct. One we can call the Hindu and Buddhist theory that the individual did the deed that caused the illness and the other is the Jewish theory that the family or genetic lineage caused the illness. Curiously, both theories of karma are mentioned in the Bible. If you asked anyone of an agricultural society how to explain individual karma, they would say, "Whatever you sow, that you will reap." This phrase appears in the religious ...
This evenings talk will address the overlap between psychotherapy and meditation, from the perspective of a Western psychiatrist whose introduction to the study of the mind came through Buddhist meditation. Discussion will center on how primal emotions like aggression and desire are handled. While it is often assumed that Buddhism counsels suppression or eradication of such energies, Mark Epstein will propose another model. Drawn from his studies of both D.W. Winnicott and the Buddha, this evenings presentation will use the Buddhas own inner struggle as a model for our own. Meditation instruction will be offered. Mark Epstein is a Harvard trained psychiatrist with a private practice in New York City. A longtime student of Joseph Golstein and Jack Kornfield, he is the author of a number of works about the overlap of Buddhism and psychotherapy, including Thoughts without a Thinker, Going to Pieces without Falling Apart, and Psychotherapy without the Self ...
Dr. Philip Yang began his studies of Zen Buddhism in the temples of Ling Shan, Whitehorse, Fahua, and many other sacred places in China. He studied with more than a dozen of famous masters in Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, and other parts of China. Under the guidance of masters Yuan Zhao and Ling Nan Zi, he was supposedly trained for supernatural abilities, including clairvoyance, remote diagnosis, and remote healing. Dr. Yang originally graduated in Guangxi University in China. After that, he went to the International Life Science Technology Institute in Szechuan province for three years. After his graduation, he went to a famous Buddhist master Yuan Zhao in Mount Guanyin in Shanxi province, where he received education in Buddhism. He went on to study under a Taoist teacher master Ling Nan Zi in Szechuan and Dr. Weizhen Chang in Beijing. Dr. Philip Yang claims to successfully apply these abilities in his clinical practice, creating miraculous healing effects, including difficult diseases. By combining Qigong
With its endorsement of worldly comforts, Wat Dhammakaya, the largest temple in Thailand, has attracted growing numbers while unsettling the government and Buddhist leaders.
But sharing does not mean wanting others to abandon their own spiritual roots and embrace your faith. That would be cruel. People are stable and happy only when they are firmly rooted in their own tradition and culture. To uproot them would make them suffer. There are already enough people uprooted from their tradition today, and they suffer greatly, wandering around like hungry ghosts, looking for something to fill their spiritual needs. We must help them return to their tradition. Each tradition must establish dialogue with its own people first, especially with those young people who are lost and alienated. During the last fifteen years while sharing the Buddhas Dharma in the West, I always urged my Western friends to go back to their own traditions and rediscover the values that are there, those values they have not been able to touch before. The practice of Buddhist meditation can help them do so, and many have succeeded. Buddhism is made of non-Buddhist elements. Buddhism has no separate ...

Rebirthing breathing is a pranayama method. It generates energy in our bodies. It draws in Divine Grace as atmospheric prana into our bodies, collects it, and circulates it. Every single cycle of one inhale and one exhale, is a complete circuit of pranic energy. Even 20 cycles can give us a significant amount of energy and healing. In rebirthing, they recommend that you do 10 sessions of approximately one hour to three hours each with less than one week between sessions, and with a "breath coach". Assistance is helpful, because, in the beginning, you will forget to breathe consciously and lapse into unconscious breathing, stop breathing altogether, or push on the exhale to avoid feeling an emotion. You will also be tempted to "lose heart" or go "sansho shima" (a Buddhist term for quitting the process). Usually we are tempted when we are about to move through something very big. Gurdjieff also called this experience "the second conscious shock". The first shock is simply going from thinking about ...

DĪPAVANSA, dēpȧ-vänsȧ (Pāli, dipa, island + vaṁsa, lineage). The title given to the oldest chronicle history of the island of Ceylon. It is written in the Pāli language and dates from the fourth century of our era. An account is given in this old record of Buddha and the history of Buddhism in Ceylon down to the year A.D. 302. Like the other Ceylonese chronicle, the Mahāvansa (q.v.), to which it is akin, the Dīpavansa is based on an older source. A record is preserved in the scholiast on the Mahāvansa that King Dhātusena (A.D. 459-477) caused the Dīpavansa to be publicly read at an annual festival held in honor of Mahinda, the apostle who introduced Buddhism into Ceylon.

One is tempted to quote Lewis Carrolls White Queen, who, in response to Alices ``One cant believe impossible things retorted ``I daresay you havent had much practice... When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes Ive believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Or Douglas Adams Electric Monk, a labor-saving device programmed to do your believing for you, which was capable of ``believing things theyd have difficulty believing in Salt Lake City and which, at the moment of being introduced to the reader, believed, contrary to all the evidence, that everything in the world was a uniform shade of pink. But White Queens and Electric Monks become less funny when you realize that these virtuoso believers are indistinguishable from revered theologians in real life. ``It is ...

What did the Buddha speak? He would have spoken various related languages -- Magadhi, Pali-Sanskrit, Prakrit, and the popular tongues of the many lands and territories he visited. There is only one exclusively Buddhist language, and it is not Sanskrit but its cognate Pali (what we interpret as a super-simplified Sanskrit but spoken by many more people, like common Aramaic compared to priestly Hebrew). Some of the oldest Buddhist texts are recorded in the spoken Pali tongue, which does not have an alphabet. It uses other alphabets, such as Sinhalese (from the island off the southern tip of the subcontinent). Sri Lanka, where Sinhalese is spoken, is where the most famous Indian Buddhist scholar-monk and commentator Ven. Buddhaghosa went to learn, record, and compile two massive Buddhist meditation manuals, the early Path of Freedom (Vimuttimagga) and the more refined and expanded Path of Purification (Visuddhimagga), the former preserved by the Chinese, and the later preserved by South and ...
Classic Thai Massage (TTM) has a long history of more than two,500 years. It originated as a distillation of Indian Ayurvedic and conventional Chinese healing arts into a yoga-based technique primarily based on lines, points and treatments. The Thai method, to the present day, is primarily based on these main energy lines (meridians) and wind gates (chakras). TTM program of Ayurvedic medicine owes a lot of its early systematization, preservation, and subsequent propagation to ascetic Buddhists and their monastic institution. All through the ages, the practitioners of this medicine were Therevada Buddhist monks, practicing their healing at the monasteries.. As Thailand is located along the trade routes between India and China and Buddhism spreads out from India, this healing medicine spread along with it. It found its way to Southeast Asia where, for centuries, it was practiced by monks as a single element of indigenous Thai medicine. Thai folks, believing illness final results from an imbalance ...

Tripitaka is Sanskrit word meaning "three baskets". It refers to the Buddhist canon with its three divisions--sutra, vinaya, and abhidharma. A tripitaka master is one who has thoroughly mastered all three divisions. Tripitaka Master Hsuan-Tsang was one of the foremost translators of Chinese Buddhist texts and a great enlightened master in his own right. He lived during the early Tang Dynasty, a golden age for Buddhism in China. During his early years as a monk in China he became aware of a number of doctrinal controversies concerning the Mahayana teachings, particularly those of the Yogacara. He then decided to journey to India to resolve his own doubts and to bring back authoritative texts that would help establish the correct teachings in China. After his fourteen (or according to some, seventeen) year journey, he established a translation bureau under imperial patronage. He succeeded in translating the major Yogacara texts as well as many others. His teachings and translations served as the ...
In other times and eras God was viewed as a female, such that, were such cultural biases reversed, the worship of God as a giant man in the sky, as found in Islam and Judaism, would also be considered idolatry. The Trinity of Catholicism is considered idolatrous, as are the many Hindus Gods. Under this law, the precepts of Buddhism would be illegal, since Buddhism is designed to recognize and produce the God within, and to thus treat people and other sentient beings with dignity and respect, as Godly entities. Pantheism, of course, or the recognition of the Divine in all creation, would also be illegal. People who erect beautiful graven images, even without intention to worship them, will also be subject to punishment. It is also forbidden to buy products from idol-worshippers, such as incense or health food from Hindus, if they are used in idol-worship. Bending down in front of an idol or picking up a brick and saying, This is my God, makes a person liable for (capital) ...

Tamil Nadu boasted of outstanding Buddhist monks, who had made remarkable contributions to Buddhism thought and learning. Three of the greatest Pali scholars of this period were Buddhaghosa, Buddhadatta, and Dhammapala and all three of them were associated with Buddhist establishments in the Tamil kingdoms.. Buddhadatta or Thera Buddhaatta as he is called lived during the time of Accyutarikkanta, the Kalabra ruler of the Chola-Nadu. He was a senior contemporary of Buddhaghosa. He was born in the Cola kingdom and lived in the 5th Century AD. Under the patronage of this ruler, Buddhadatta wrote many books. Among his best known Pali writings are the VINAYA-VINICCHAYA, the UTTARA-VINICCHAYA and the JINALANKARA-KAVYA. Among the commentaries written by him are the MADHURATTHA-VILASINI and the ABHIDHAMMAVATARA. In the Abhidhammaratara he gives a glowing account at Kaveripattinum, Uragapuram, Bhutamangalam and Kanchipuram and the Mahavihara at Sri Lanka. While he was at Sri Lanka, he composed many ...

However, the younger generation is being dumbed down so maybe they wont worry about who controls what and says this, that and the other as long as they can keep their eyes locked into their smart phones or computers. Once the fossils that are running most countries now are gone then I foresee the younger generations overturning so much as the ones I talk to couldnt care less about so many things held dear by the current ones in power.

No it doesnt. China has used fossil fuels because the entire worlds transportation and military equipment maintenance and use is currently based on oil. The point is that we can transition to [url=http://www.gizmag.com/go/5859/]electric use even of military equipment[.url] rather than oil esp. in an occupation of a passive populace. Now what Peak Oil does do is ensure low intensity conflicts punctuated by the use of wonder weapons. So more terrorism and conflicts like we saw in Afghanistan, West and Eat Africa, Myanmar and Thailand. The era of large scale maneuvering militaries will slowly wind down (but wait - theres still about 300 yrs of oil, natural gas and other fossil fuels to waste in warmongering) until fossil fuels are totally replaced (but please note that I said from the outside that by the end of the century we will be synthesizing critical materials like synthetic oil directly from constituent molecules using a combination of nanotechnology and biotechnology ...

The Lotus Sutra, as it is generally known in the West, is one of the most important of all the Mahayana sutras, and especially in Japan, where it is popularly known as the Ho-ke-kyou, it has been held in high regard ever since Prince Shoutoku included a commentary on it in his set of commentaries on three Mahayana sutras (San-gyou-gi-sho).It is a work of great literary merit, including as it does many sections of verse and various parables, but at the same time it has earned a lasting place in the history of Buddhism owing to the superior quality of its philosophical content. The concept of One Vehicle especially, which permeates the whole work, has had immeasurable influence upon Japanese Buddhism.It is divided into 28 chapters, of which Chapter 16, The Life Span of the Tathagatayuspramana-parivarta XV), is especially important for its eulogy of sakyamuni as the embodiment of the eternal life and as having attained enlightenment in the inconceivably remote past. Among the numerous parables ...

The history of Christianity in Korea is generally considered to start in the 17th century - much later than Confucianism or Buddhism - yet today, there are more believers of the Christian faith than any other organized religion in Korea. The history of the introduction of Christianity to Korea is unique in that it was initiated by Korean scholars who took an academic interest in Christianity as a teaching of Western civilization, rather than by Christian missionaries proselytizing in Korea. After the Qing invasions (1636-7), Joseon bureaucrats who had been sent to Qing China began to take interest in Western civilization and started to import and academically study Catholic literature from China. Though at first they were critical of the teachings, some Joseon scholars began to believe in the faith and established local Christian organizations. The Joseon king and government initially took a lenient stance on the religion because Jesuit teachings, which were introduced to Korea at that time, ...
