Triceratopses, sorry to hear the feeling you get!
I think “Buddhism” is the one should reply to you, not me. I guess “Buddhism” will answer you in seriously, respectful manner and with no any negative word as usual. That’s what I think a real Buddhist will do.
It let me recall to the student’s time.
Normally some good and discipline students listen to teachers’ teaching are in very respectful and appreciate attitude. Of cause they will ask questions while they don’t get the meanings, and they also can discuss the issues of different perspectives with teachers. Listen carefully, precisely and thankfully are students’ responsibility. Prepared and individualized are teachers’ duties. Students are not only learn knowledge from teachers but also be trained the morality from the class.
If they didn’t be trained well, then these students will be unethical and will become the social or even more serious of country problems.
So, while one person said “It's extremely dull and boring” to describe a volunteer who share something new, interesting and profound sutras to everyone, then I can say, this person must be an extremely arrogant in any field.
Let alone you think you are a Buddhist?! A real Buddhist shouldn’t in that kind of manner to everyone. So, again, I believe you are Lama, right? So, in front, lots conversation from you and “Buddhism” and “iwonder” and...all want to proof “Tibet Buddhism is not Buddhism, they are lama.” Or not….
Indeed! From this kind of answer manner, you definitely are not a Buddhist, are you?
“Tibet Buddhism is not Buddhism, they are lama.” I can see why and the different now! Thanks for your demonstration.
Back to the topics, I feel this brothers’ metaphor is quite good and easy to understand if you did read with heart and don’t always in condemnatory methodology, and with no any malicious judge, try to calm to let “Buddhism” can keep going to explain, then that will be good luck for all of us.
Leave alone the human being’s manner issue. Can you explain more about your idea of rose case? And why do you think “The mind doesn't have the time to do that..”?
Isn’t the “mind” is quite unbelievable shrewd? What’s the main issue you are trying to connect with?
I am asking you sincerely with no any challenge means just as I asked “Buddhism”.
Hope you can help me to figure it out.
