It seems our dear spacefriends have decided Buddhism to be the latest fashion in our galaxy.


Is this their latest signal to us to abandon the abrahamic godfreak religions and focus on the real deal instead?

"There cannot be two skies." (Dak'kon; Planescape: Torment)


"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." - Luke 16:13


"When your mind is purified, the outside ceases to exist and you enter the world of pure mind, of soul only. Your footsteps draw near to the great cosmic mind, and you enter. Do not be afraid. You will not lose your physical body, but will return and look at your physical body and realize this body is not your own. When you experience this in meditation, it is the first step of realization in Buddhism." (Sokei-An, The Zen Eye, "Meditaiton", p. 57).


Even if you forget [dualistic] knowledge in awakening - awakening is nothing other than buddha-nature- and are called "a man without concern," you still must realize that everything hinges on a single thing: going beyond! (Yunmen, Master Yunmen, Urs App)

My master told me;

"The unborn nature of the permanent Mind ground, remains effortlessly impervious to the art of rational argument and the knowledge derived therefrom (philosophy).

Where the former is perfectly self-supportive and an assured ground for mahaparinirvana, the latter is entirely interdependent with its self-empty source of origin (the aggregates), and as such, cause for much division and distress among its followers."
