  1. Bums I am missing

    @offtopic Do you still have that figurine of Laughing Buddha? Glad that you're doing well. @ontopic I wish all of the old members were active, but there you have it - impermanence...
  2. To be great, be whole: don’t exaggerate Or leave out any part of you. Be complete in each thing. Put all you are Into the least of your acts. So too in each lake, with its lofty life, The whole moon shines. This topic has been recycled by Cosmic Recycling Committee. Thanks for reading

  4. The Tao is...on vacation?

    Nature – the Gentlest Mother is, Impatient of no Child – The feeblest – or the waywardest – Her Admonition mild – In Forest – and the Hill – By Traveller – be heard – Restraining Rampant Squirrel – Or too impetuous Bird – How fair Her Conversation – A Summer Afternoon – Her Household – Her Assembly – And when the Sun go down – Her Voice among the Aisles Incite the timid prayer Of the minutest Cricket – The most unworthy Flower – When all the Children sleep – She turns as long away As will suffice to light Her lamps – Then bending from the Sky – With infinite Affection – And infiniter Care – Her Golden finger on Her lip – Wills Silence – Everywhere –

    One stupid question: when he says substrate consciousness (never heard that syntagma before), does he mean alayavijnana? Thanks for the link.
  6. do a dog have a buddha nature

    One dog, many woofs... Senzaki's translation of Mumon's comment: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Gateless_Gate/Joshu%27s_Dog One of the ways to practice h'ua tou: http://lachs.inter-link.com/docs/Lachs-HuaTou-2012.pdf As for the one hand clapping, Bart Simpson solved that one in a rather zany way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1tsCOkCoC8
  7. Cha'n, Zen and Taoism?

    Maybe a quote from Liu Huayang will spark a tolerant and fruitful dialogue between the practitioners of Ch'an school and Daoists (I sure hope so...), for the benefit of all seekers of Truth.
  8. Its cold out there, what are your thoughts on Tummo?

    Also, it's not a seasonal practice... From the same book: edit: formatting
  9. Tiantai Shamatha-Vipashyana

    Thanks. I did rely on the old translation for some time...Too bad he didn't mention that in the preface To clarify: I posted the link only for comparison. Ideally, every practitioner should read the source text. (Didn't want to reply 'cause I don't have anything useful to say regarding the subject.) All the best.

    Something to warm the Yang energy...
