Buddhadasa Bhikkhu - THE THINGS WE CLING TO

What is our handhold? What we are clinging to is the world itself. In Buddhism the word "world" has a broader connotation than it has in ordinary usage. It refers to all things, to the totality. It does not refer just to human beings, or celestial beings, or gods, or beasts, or the denizens of hell, or demons, or hungry ghosts, or titans, or any particular realm of existence at all.

The Watcher’s function, as its name implies, is to act as guardian for its creator, functioning in effect as an extra pair of eyes. It may be bound to a particular place as a watchman, or may be of a more spatially general nature, per the specifications of the conjurer.

Both Buddhism and gnosticism (gnosticism as a typological category) see our phenomenal world as a deception (maya) insofar as it is not what it appears to be.

Buddhism and gnosticism

Worse still, at bottom, it only gives suffering to its subjects who cling to it. In the final analysis, nothing is signified by the phenomenal world except its nothingness as an illusion. Said another way, there is a radical discontinuity between phenomenal reality and spiritual reality in both Buddhism and gnosticism (even in the Gospel of John, which is not considered to be a gnostic text, we find the gnostic theme of light and darkness clearly established in the first chapter). For the average person this seems unimportant. Buddhism and Gnosticism.

Reading Sutras as a Spiritual Practice - from the Western Chan Fellowship. By Chan Master Sheng Yen A talk delivered at Tibet House in New York City, on 5 November, 1994 and edited by Linda Peer and Harry Miller, edited with permission for NCF by John Crook 1998.

Esta es la única diferencia entre el nirvana y el samsara. Theory of The Acausal. Some Notes On The Theory of The Acausal In respect of the theory of the acausal, [1] the terms acausality and acausal refer to ‘acausal space and acausal time’. That is, and in the context of this theory, both terms refer to a posited continuum different from the causal continuum of observed phenomena; which causal continuum has been described in terms of a four-dimensional space-time; and knowledge of and understanding about which causal continuum can be obtained by means of sciences such as physics, astronomy, and chemistry. Essentially, therefore, acausality – as part of such a formal theory – is an axiom, a logical assumption, not a belief. This axiom about the nature of the cosmos is one that derives not from the five Aristotelian essentials that determine the scientific method, but from the intuition of empathy [2] and from deductions relating to observations of living beings.

To return to acausal energy. The Khabs is in the Khu. (This essay is also available in printed form, and you can also download the PDF.)
