Ganachakra On a more pastoral vajrayana and haughty lamas… A few weeks ago I read an excellent article about Pope Francis shaking up the ecclesiastic leadership in the United States, and the subsequent reactions from more conservative Catholics. I found myself, despite my own sense of satisfaction in learning more about how the nuts and bolts of how Catholicism in America works, feeling sad and emotional around how far it seems that we as practitioners of Vajrayana have to go in the West before such conversations can occur around the quality of presence of our own spiritual leadership. In a way, we Vajrayana Buddhists are lacking when it comes to real authentic pastoral presence.
The Four Noble Truths represent the core of the teachings of the Buddha, and are as follows: The First Noble Truth - dissatisfaction and suffering exist and are universally experienced. The Second Noble Truth - Desire and attachment are the causes of dissatisfaction and suffering. The Third Noble Truth - There is an end to dissatisfaction and suffering. The Fourth Noble Truth - The end can be attained by journeying on the Noble Eight-fold Path. THE NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH: Right Understanding, Right Thinking, Right Speech, Right Attitude, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration.

Jayarava's Raves This post is a précis and review of: I'm making these notes and observations in order to better understand a new idea that I find intriguing. I have recently argued that the legacy of philosophical thought may be obscuring what is actually going on in our minds by imposing pre-scientific or non-scientific conceptual frameworks over the subject. I see this rethinking of reason as a case in point.

Cerchiamo, fondamentalmente, la Beatitudine, base esperienziale della Realizzazione, che dovrebbe essere lo scopo fondamentale della vita; perché? Cerchiamo la Beatitudine, perché esperienza primaria, fondamento di ogni altra sperimentazione: sempre presente alla base del nostro esserci, la Beatitudine rende possibile ogni altra esperienza. Senza non ci può essere nulla di ciò che sperimentiamo, nemmeno le esperienze: corpo, emozioni, pensieri, ricordi, mondo,… Continua qui... Pomodoro Zen

Slowly but surely, analytic philosophers are becoming interested in Buddhist thought. At the same time, Buddhist scholars are slowly but surely working their way into analytic philosophy. One of the most interesting junctures of intersection is the concept of free will (vs determinism or fatalism). ‘The wo/man on the street’ today believes in free will. She or he probably doesn’t have a robust theory of how free the will is, or what that will is. But certainly it is believed that one’s own choices really, truly are (at least usually) one’s own .

What the Buddha Taught and the World Today There are some who believe that Buddhism is so lofty and sublime a system that it cannot be practiced by ordinary men and women in this workaday world, as if one had to retire to a monastery or to some quiet place, in the hopes of becoming a "true" Buddhist. This is a sad misconception, due evidently to a lack of understanding of what the Buddha taught. Wisdom Quarterly: American Buddhist Journal
Buddhism For Non-Believers I’ve got that quarter-life crisis swag going on. I have yet to be very productive during my post-graduation time.
