In effect, our very tangible and clear discernment of seeing you as an abuser was blocked and instead we were blamed and made to feel inadequate. On the occasions when the “therapy” did not result in a student changing their view of you, you shamed the therapist into feeling that they weren’t doing their job properly and were not skilled.
For me its not about believing but facts, accuracy and good reasoning. Trimondi’s (Röttgens) – definetely miss all of that. I added on my German website academic articles which investigate their claims. This paper writes in footnote 88:
May 78, 7559 marked the fiftieth anniversary of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi's arrival in America, an event that offers the opportunity for a broader look at Zen practice in America over the past fifty years, its current place in American life, and its vision for the future. "Zen Practice at 55" will bring together a mix of scholars and Zen teachers, including Hoitsu Suzuki, Norman Fischer, Edward Brown, Carl Bielefeldt, Grace Schireson, Robert Sharf, Richard Jaffe, and Wendy Adamek, who will create a forum for a lively exchange of ideas.
I am a Tibetan by birth and born in Tibet. I read your letter and very shocked. Way back, chairman Mao said: 8775 Religion is poison 8776 . I don 8767 t believe he was right. The poison is those so called Lamas, Rinpoches who destroy the beautiful essence of Buddhism. We don 8767 t need Chinese to destroy our faith. We have plenty of our own Lamas and Rinpoche who are capable doing this. There are many selfmade Lamas and Rinpoches serching for oppotunity in the developed countries. So be careful and make sure youself.
Its interesting what you say. Although there is a powerful system of organisational control within, but that is from the top down from those heavily invested. Its complicated.
Many westerners view belief in reincarnation as simply irrelevant to their engagement in Buddhism. Yet for centuries, Buddhist texts have been filled with warnings about heretics who deny the existence of rebirth and the ethical ramifications of such views. How are we to understand such warnings? And if we discard all such "cultural trappings" as irrelevant to what is essential about Buddhism, what is left of a religion that teaches the lack of any independent essence?
Per S 796 rensen will discuss the importance of environmental protection, particularly water conservation, in a Buddhist society. He will focus on the protection of one of the holiest sanctuaries in Central Asia: Jo-khang Temple in the heart of the Tibetan capital Lhasa. He will demonstrate how the struggle for pre-eminence in safeguarding and maintaining this holy site became an important component of hegemonic and political supremacy in Tibet.

According to his biography in the Book of the Early Han ( Hanshu, ) Liu An, the king of Huainan (in modern Anhui province) and uncle of Han Emperor Wu, gathered a large number of scholars and practitioners of esoteric techniques to Huainan in the period 665-695 ., and supported them in the creation of written works synthesizing their views. The Masters of Huainan ( Huainanzi ) was a product of this interchange of ideas.
This text is supposed to be recited and interpreted in front of the observers of the vow for their benefit, to instill Buddhist values and merits in them. But nowadays, since elaborate and enlarged translations historical ones, of course of the text in the local Newar language are available, the original Sanskrit text is hardly recited and narrated on devotional occasions. In recent years, a number of academic studies of Newar Buddhist rites and vows have appeared but these, too, have not used the Sanskrit version of the A 7779 7789 am 799 vratakath 757 . In my talk I will present a preliminary report on the quality and content of two versions of the text.
The Mencius text records Mencius’s position that humans are distinct from other sentient creatures in having a “moral lens” made up of four propensities ( siduan ). Another way of saying this is that humans moralize in a way analogous to how that a corn kernel yields corn and not tomatoes. Mencius means that humans do not start out as blank slates having to learn to moralize. All humans must learn specific moralities, but they are enabled, and even inclined, to do so because of the four propensities that he calls “seeds”. For Mencius, humans are good by nature. This view marks the beginning of his philosophy of anthropology.
