The goal is for the teacher to be the student, because the student has actually managed to gain all their realizations / good qualities.
Similarly, that Nagarjuna’s teachers and students studied tantra more than standard mahayana should indicate something.
"Buddhism"s way of explaining things is the poorest way, s/he simply quotes sutra. This is like a Christian on the street quoting the bible. No scholar or good teacher does this, since it’s completely useless. What a scholar or good teacher does is quote authoritative commentaries which leave no room for interpretation and very explicitly explain the meaning of things.[/quote]
Triceratops, I strongly recommend you should be very careful every word what you are saying and respect others while I spent some time to scroll back to look into most of your response.
Buddha Shakyamuni’s teaching always remind us who Buddhists that should learn from bright-eyed advisors. And who are our advisors? Not distinguish by their appearance of monks’ wearing, or position, or if they are famous…, but by their teaching if based on the true meaning of Buddhist sutras which is Tathagata-garbha (如來藏/真如/本際…) such as the greatly wise manjushri bodhisattva (文殊師利菩薩) or the holy Vimalakirti bodhisattva (維摩詰居士)…. And you will get a very bad karma if you are making a mistake to slander real advisors who can teach us the primary meaning of Buddhist sutras no matter you are accidental or on purpose and no matter you are Buddhists or not. Be a Buddhist, I’m truly worry about you and your afterlife. Who knows maybe we already collect the enough blessed rewards and wisdom that can let us meet bodhisattvas’ reincarnation right now, and maybe just in this forum.
Be a third part, I really feel “Buddhism” is trying to help us to learn the true meaning of Buddhist sutras. He quotes these sutras are just suitable and intelligible to explain his standpoints for us if you can really put your prejudice aside. Although I don’t know why you can’t just be calm down and really think thoroughly that maybe they (“Buddhism” , “iwonder” or “Zeusma”….maybe more people before that I didn’t check ) are trying save you from Tantrism sexual method practice and wrong teaching.
I always read the quotes or related websites from articles mentioned to make sure what the remarks are correct or nonsense. And I think, if you really read these two articles from “iwonder” mentioned as bellow, then you won’t said this kind of words:
You said “Only a person with a narrow mind can become fixated on one or two people when there are 1000s of contrary examples. Grow up.” EXTIBETANBUDDHIST.COM/2014/1 … -BUDDHISM/
INSTITUTIONALIZED SEXUAL ABUSE IN TIBETAN ‘BUDDHISM’
Your comment is just like this situation:
One fool father has 10 daughters. One day, his most beautiful youngest daughter told him, that she has been sexual assault by his best friend. This fool father can’t believe that. He said ”It can’t be! Only you say so, the other 9 sisters didn’t say that. You must be a liar.” Then this fool father punished his youngest daughter severely instead to find out the truth. And another day, this fool father’s another beautiful younger daughter came to tell him the same thing that she has been sexual assault by his best friend. This fool father did the same thing, he said” It can’t be! Only you and your youngest sister say so, the other 8 sisters didn’t say that. You must be a liar.” So he punished this daughter severely again and didn’t want to check if his best friend is a rapist or not. Then this fool father’s best friend rapes all his other daughters and these daughters did say nothing because they are all afraid of his father’s punishment.
How pathetic, isn’t it?! Be a mercy Buddhist, should be and will be unearthing the dirty truth even only one person dare said so to help others not been injured again, not to mention so many sentient being share their dirty and miserable life in Lamaism. If you determine to help these pool victims, you can find the truth that you don’t want to face to get more cases by googling just use the keywords “lama sexual abuse”.
I read the very famous lama’s another book of “How to Practice: The Way to Meaningful Life” in Chinese version recently because of your debate (author: The fourteenth Dalai lama) (修行的第一堂課). He wrote that lamas use the sexual intercourse for their method to practice on page 178~180. How can be a sensible Buddhist will agree with this kind of sexual method to practice for the Budi way?!! I don’t get who will be foolish just like that. Are you??? My my!! I hope not!
Buddha never teaches us that kind of dirty method. So I can definitely for sure that Lamaism or present Tibetan Buddhism is not Buddhism. Lamas are definitely not Buddhists. The truth is truth. I care about is present what they (lamas) have done, no matter you kept saying how important of scholars or lineages.
Again, hope you can just stand on mercy Buddhists’ side to think and value others’ commentary maybe are right and mining the truth of Lamaism’s doctrines and real more victims cases with heart then back to share.
