What is Buddha?
« on: November 05, 2012, 12:41:39 AM »
As i understand it there are no creatergod in buddhism but as i can see thre is gods but not creaters. The buddhas are the gods. They are human who have become gods through nirvana. You can pray to them to get energy in meditations or for better life. Is that right?
But what created the universe in buddhist writings?

There is a point in the universe where a path of light blasts through what looks like a hole, and this hole leads to another dimension. This dimension is a nucleus of an atom, which is a part of a molecule, in a much larger dimension. This molecule is a porcelain fixture which has a liquid pool. There is a periodic disturbance of this liquid and it splashes through the hole into our universe. This is the source of the matter that forms our planets. There is an odor but it resolves into a stable material that has a sandy texture.

In a land near India, long ago, a king ruled. It is common that rulers indulge themselves, as few people achieve enlightenment as a ruler. This king had sex with palace slaves, as was the norm. It would not be hard to visualize a situation where a ruler had access to the most beautiful young women. But it would be rare for a religion to allow this truth to be its foundation.

The king fell in love with one such slave, and she became pregnant. It was not the first time such a thing happened, and the king always inflicted a death penalty upon the newborn. But this time he was truly in love. The slave demanded that the king not kill her child, and told him that if he did, she would kill herself. So the king made a promise.

It would be hard to believe that a king would submit to the wishes of a slave girl. The best a slave might achieve would be some form of compromise. The king kept his promise, but on his terms.

The newborn was taken away from the mother, and put into a room. For 18 years, the child was kept in a chair...constantly served by a group of servants. He stayed that way the entire time...never doing anything for himself. All he knew were the few servants and the four walls of the room...which had a doorway.

On the 18th birthday of the child, it weighed between 400 and 500 pounds. It could not walk. It was wheeled out the front door of the palace, and left on the steps...in a wagon. As it sat in the wagon, it saw...for the first time...the sky...townspeople...movement of the air...trees...houses...and shops. This child would become the spiritual leader of the world.

Not the religious leader, as Buddhism is not religion. The spiritual leader, as spirituality is truth. He was not affected by the ego, as all souls are...simply because he was never allowed to witness society. He immediately saw hypocrisy, deceit, disillusionment, suffering, and truth. His simple deductions were truth based, and he was very intelligent, and had no choice but to be observant.

To follow Buddha is to search for truth. It is not convenient. It is not accepted by society. It is not simple. It is a constant commitment...a search...for meaning. It is a true commitment, and cannot be adjusted to taste. Truth will not make you popular...rich...or fashionable. It will take you to a place that is the future, and the past...but not the present.

Buddha is truth. It is science. It is destiny. We cannot pretend to be something we are not. We only fool ourselves.

Not too shabby!
You only left out the part where the minds of people get recycled over and over again, coming out of this one molecule sized particle and returning back to it over and over again, eternally.
Which means that your mind and my mind will exist forever and have existed forever in different manifestations.
Take care!

If I had explained the whole story, the Secret Service would have come and arrested me, taken me to a hospital, and crammed my head into a porcelain fixture over and over. Above this fixture would be a Free Masons symbol with compass and square, and the American flag would be framed on the opposite wall.

This time they would not let me escape. They would make sure I stayed alive as they would perform experiments on me. I would end up losing my gender. Not that I am afraid of any of this. It is just one issue I have a problem with...what will they do after they cannot remove the smile on my face!

Wowie zowie!!!  That is a busy forum. I think I will check it out...after I pop whatever blisters are left from yesterday and see if this thing here will wash off.

If my father wasn't a secret Fed working for a secret society I just wouldn't feel so warm and fuzzy. Uhh, well...its not fuzz...its what I missed when wiping.

Hmmm, I am not sure that is my kind of forum. It seems they are all/almost all devoted to ego and it is just an extension of society out in the world of humans. Looks like an atheist forum that has little to say about anything, and if you want to talk about something important you went to the wrong place.

Last thing I would want to participate in is a forum where people are posting constantly and have nothing to say. It is just a street corner. I will give it a try to see if I can lure anyone out to talk.

Followup: OK, I have found it to be mostly people who are socializing, but still lots of people who are discussing topics. It is a nice forum, although I am not sure yet what to think about the +/- thing. There are so many inflated egos there.
