  2. Alan Watts

    Hi, I'm reading Tao the Watercourse Way and in it Alan Watts states that neither Lao Tzu nor Chuang Tzu mentions the I Ching. Alan goes on to say that the I Ching wasn't included in Taoism until around the 5th century. Before this time the I Ching was basically used like the way that the farmers almanac would be used today. Has anybody heard this ? If so thoughts ?
  3. TTJ / Japan

    Hi, Japanese culture seems to be influenced by Chinese culture in some ways.For example; Chan/Zen, as well as Pureland Buddhism , martial arts as well as TCM in the form of Godai. But there seems to be no influence of the TTJ. I was wondering if the Tao has any impact in Japan as it does in China. Or perhaps I have waaay too much time on my hands while nursing an injury.
  4. What are you listening to?

    Front Line Assembly, Meshuggha , Bjork & Napalm Death !!!!!!
  5. Best TV shows ever

    Geen Hornet ! Both Kung Fu,s. BTW, did anyone watch Wayne Dwyer (SP) TTJ series on PBS ? I missed it , but was wondering if it was too new agey.
  6. Hi, I also have this book. It seemed to get good reviews at Amazon. Problem is that it's all over the place ! Zen , Pureland and other Buddhist scriptures,as well as Taoism & Confusionism.(sp.) Mixing all different paths , too much confusion .
  7. I - Ching

    Thanks for responding, perhaps I should have stated it's main purpose. I mean that the I Ching is used more than just predicting the future right ? How can it lead us spiritually ?
  8. I - Ching

    Hi, I realize this is no small/easy question, but...... I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the TRUE purpose of the I - Ching ? Thanks

    Hi everyone, Though I am a practicing Pure Land Buddhist, I have a strong interest in the Tao Te Ching and the philosophical points of view of Taoism. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you all. Peace Vince
