DIALECTICAL PARADOXICAL TEACHING OF MASTER MAITREYA BUDDHA
By Master Yan Maitri-Shi
The experience of Awakening is not the same for each individual. But in addition, there are Awakening levels, which are achieved according to the effort and dedication to the Learning. Within these levels it can be appreciated three different types of paths, which lead to:
- An Analytical Awakening
- An Existential Awakening
- A Libertarian Awakening
The Analytical Awakening is that which is achieved by the inner work of an individual, that is to say, the psychological transformations comprising the Cure (Nirvana) from the ills of attachment, hatred and unconsciousness. It is a psychoanalytical, humanistic and transpersonal Awakening which is achieved transcending the ego, by overcoming the internal dualism. This type of Awakening is rather in a subjective and individual plane.
The Existential Awakening is an overcoming of dualism and the opposite poles in the reality surrounding the subject in the field of the phenomenal. The subject who reaches this level of Awakening he reaches a thorough understanding of the Universe around him, since he can learn how to decode the hidden language of the Real by having transcended his erroneous and ordinary perception about the space around him. He learns that the universal language is the dialectical-paradoxical logic, which goes beyond all kind of language. This is the type of logic used by the spiritual masters in giving a teaching to their apprentices, when they communicate from mind to mind and from heart to heart through koans. The dialectical-paradoxical language transcends all dualistic features and it is directed to the Self of the other, i.e., it is not the typical ordinary language by which the egos of individuals communicate, but rather it is an empty language.
The Libertarian Awakening is from a social nature. It is the highest spiritual degree to which one can aspire. The individual who reaches this level he understands that all the Wisdom he has achieved after spiritually having cultivated himself and worked hard, it will be useful for the welfare of all beings. It is an Awakening of a political nature; a libertarian socialist, revolutionary and ecumenical Awakening, which will make a True Spiritual Master and Guide of all the peoples to the one who achieves such a special level.
All of these different stages of Awakening must be fully reached without exception. A genuine Buddha must have experienced the three types of Awakening, which is something that can take a lifetime of Learning.
Many individuals get the degree of spiritual mastery without having transcended yet little vices that have remained unpolished. That is a dangerous fact, because it makes all kinds of irregularities can occur, which puts into question to the system of Dharma transmission of some traditions.
The Maitriyana or Way of Reconciliation is a movement that has a perfectly articulated structure of teachings, so that each individual or apprentice achieves a full and genuine Awakening, not only in pursuit of the spiritual self-realisation, but in favour of the collective Awakening and the liberation of all the oppressed beings.
Within the structure of the Maitriyana, nine internal pathways can be appreciated from which the fields of Psychology, Philosophy and Politics are addressed. Each of these areas includes orthodox, heterodox and esoteric aspects, regarding the mode of transmission of the Spiritual Teachings. These pathways are:
- Psychology (conducive to Analytical Awakening)
- Buddhist Psychoanalysis
- Buddhist Humanism
- Buddhist Transpersonalism
- Philosophy (conducive to Existential Awakening)
- Buddhist Existentialism
- Buddhist Stoicism
- Buddhist Relativism
- Politics (conducive to Libertarian Awakening)
- Buddhist Socialism
- Buddhist Anarchism
- Buddhist Ecumenism
Within this structure, in the psychological field of the Maitriyana movement, Buddhist Psychoanalysis is rather an orthodox pathway, Buddhist Humanism is a heterodox pathway and Buddhist Transpersonalism is an esoteric pathway; likewise, within the philosophical field of Maitriyana, Buddhist Existentialism is the orthodox pathway, Buddhist Stoicism is the heterodox pathway and Buddhist Relativism is the esoteric pathway; and in the political aspect of these internal branches of Maitriyana, Buddhist Socialism is the orthodox branch, Buddhist Anarchism is the heterodox branch and Buddhist Ecumenism is the esoteric branch.
Each of these internal pathways can be studied separately, but the study of its entirety is required for the Degree of Master in Maitriyana. This mode of approach of the Spiritual Wisdom is the most complete, besides being reconciliatory of all the spiritual traditions around the world. The Maitriyana movement, created by Master Maitreya, teaches that anyone who strives and engages with Wisdom can reach the highest level of Spirituality and become a true master. It also provides nine extremely valuable tools which are different approaches from one Ultimate and Supreme purpose. This Path or Way of Reconciliation acknowledges the teachings of Masters of all spiritual traditions. Furthermore, it is evidenced that wisdom and knowledge are not from Eastern or Western origin, but rather from Universal origin, and which are available to anyone wishing to evolve in all levels as possible.
The teachings of Maitriyana Spirituality are aimed at the general public, there being no limit to the possibility to Learn. Each apprentice or follower of Maitriyana can extract unlimited Spiritual Wisdom, either through the formal studies in our institutions, through the enriching dialogue with the Master Maitreya -who is the director and spiritual leader of these schools, or simply by reading the teachings of Maitriyana which amaze everyone for its simplicity, cogency and genuine wisdom. Below I enumerate a list of some of its paradoxical dialectical phrases:
* SIDDHARTA GAUTAMA IS THE CREATOR OF ECOLOGISM. ALL HIS AWAKENING IS WITNESSED IN THIS GESTURE.
* THERE IS NOTHING MORE IGNORANT THAN SAYING “THE BUDDHA”.
* THERE IS NO CHINESE BUDDHISM, JAPANESE BUDDHISM OR INDIAN BUDDHISM. THERE ARE ONLY ECHOES FROM THE PAST. THE ONLY REAL THING IS THE AWAKENED MIND, AND THIS ONE IS OF TRANSCULTURAL NATURE. BUDDHISM TIED TO ONE COUNTRY OR NATION IT IS A FALSE BUDDHISM. THAT IS WHY THE SPIRITUAL MASTER IS A CITIZEN FROM THE WORLD.
* EVOLVING IS RETURN TO THE SOURCE.
* DHARMIC TRANSMISSION OF ZEN IS NOTHING BUT AN INVENTION, BEING A PROCESS OF FAILED COMMUNICATION QUITE SIMILAR TO A GAME KNOWN AS “BROKEN PHONE”. THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE IS INCREASINGLY DISTORTED IN EACH TRANSMISSION, SO THAT A MIND AS REVOLUTIONARY AS THAT OF THE FIRST TRANSMISSOR IS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO RESTORE THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE CORRUPTED BY THE COMMUNICATION.
*FOOLISH HUMANITY: DO NOT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR NATURE IS REBELLING AGAINST THE OPPRESSIVE POWER OF THE SYSTEM?
* SAVE THE WORLD IN THE HERE AND NOW REQUIRES THE FUNDAMENTAL COURAGE AND BRAVERY FACING THE POSSIBILITY TO LOSE EVERYTHING.
* CARRYING THIS BUDDHIST NAME IMPLIES TO CONFRONT HOW THE SPIRITUALITY HAS BEEN DEVALUED BY THE CIVILISATION.
* HOW CAN BE POSSIBLE THAT AN ANARCHIST OF THE CENTURY XIX UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT THE SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION THAN MOST OF THE BUDDHIST TEACHERS?
* PEOPLE COPYING US INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING US IT IS NOTHING BUT A SYMBOL OF THE DECLINE OF THIS CIVILISATION. IN AN ORDERED SOCIETY, THE MAITRIYANA SHOULD BE ANNIHILATED OR VENERATED.
* BUDDHIST SPIRITUALITY IS NOT A PROPERTY OF HUMAN BEING, BUT THE REVERSE.
* WHAT CAN THIS LONG-HAIR MAN TEACH TO MILLIONS OF SHAVEN HEADS? TO GROW.
* TRANSFORMING THE WORLD IS BEING IN THE HERE AND NOW.
* NIRVANA IS NOT THE ULTIMATE TRUTH OF BUDDHISM. AFTER THAT HORIZON THERE IS ANOTHER WHICH IS FARTHER. THAT UTOPIAN DESTINY IS THE PATHWAY OF THE BODHISATTVA. SAVING THE WORLD REQUIRES THE COURAGE TO ABANDON ONESELF.
* POLITICIANS LEAD HUMANITY STRAIGHT TO THE WASTE BIN. THE FACT THAT THERE ARE BUDDHISTS DEFENDING A PARTICULAR GOVERNMENT IS NOTHING BUT A SYMPTOM OF THE NEED FOR A REVOLUTION. ZEN IS PRECISELY THIS: GETTING OUT OF THE STATUS QUO.
* SPIRITUAL LOVE IS WHAT HAS CREATED TO THE UNIVERSE, AND ALSO IT IS ITS END.
* WHY IS IT A BAD WORD TO SAY THAT ONE SHOUL BUILD A BETTER WORLD?
* PACIFISM, SOCIAL JUSTICE, EDUCATION AND ECOLOGY, IS THIS SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND?
* CH’AN BUDDHISM DID NOT COME FROM THE PAST, BUT IT CAME FROM THE FUTURE
* LEADING A SPIRITUAL MOVEMENT IMPLIES TO HAVE FLEXIBILITYAND FORTITUDE, TOUGHNESS AND FRIENDLINESS.
* BREATHE AND WATCH THE SUNRISE, WHY NOBODY CAN UNDERSTAND THE PARADISE?
* FOR SOME PEOPLE, TO LEAVE SECTARIANISM IS LIKE STRIP OFF THEIR SKIN BY THEMSELVES. BUT SPIRITUALITY MUST ALWAYS BE AN EXPERIENCE OF LOVE, FRATERNITY AND COMPASSION. ONE MUST BE READY TO CLIMB THE “MOUNT MORIAH” AND OFFER ONESELF IN SACRIFICE.
* THERE IS AN OLD JOKE THAT SAYS THAT THE LEFT-WING PARTIES NEEDS TO RECEIVE A BUILDING IN ORDER THAT THEY DON’T DISTURB, IN THIS WAY THEY ONLY WILL BE WORRIED ABOUT CARE THEIR PROPERTY. WITHOUT DETACHMENT, WITHOUT CONTEMPLATION, ALL REVOLUTION IS DOOMED TO FAILURE. EVEN GAUTAMA BUDDHA WOULD BE CORRUPT AFTER A DAY OF BELONGING TO THE GOVERNMENT.
* A SPIRITUAL MASTER IS A VESSEL OR A MESSENGER. BUT THE SALVATION DEPENDS ON EACH ONE. NOBODY CAN SAVE THE WORLD; THE WORLD MUST DO IT BY ITSELF. NOBODY CAN WAKE ANOTHER HUMAN BEING…
* THE SUFFERING IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS OF THE EXISTENCE.
* CAPITALISM IS SATAN, SHIVA, MARA. NO MATTER THE NAME. FACING THE FORCE OF ATTACHMENT, GREED AND HATE, ONE HAS TO INCARNATE THE PURE LAND IN ONESELF, SHOWING TO THE OTHERS THAT WE ALL ARE BROTHERS, FINGERS FROM THE SAME HAND.
* THE AWAKENING KEEPS THE TOTALITY OF THE UNIVERSE IN HARMONY. IN THIS WAY, THE GODS VENERATE TO THE AWAKENED BEING.
* EVERY TIME I HAVE AN APPRENTICE WHO CELEBRATES HIS BIRTHDAY OR THE NEW YEAR, MAKES ME WANT TO SLAP HIM OR HER AND SAY: WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO CELEBRATE THE “HAPPY PRESENT”?
* THE FORCE OF ATTENTION AND GENEROSITY IS LIKE A TSUNAMI. RECONCILIATION IS A HUMAN POTENTIAL WHICH OVERCOMES EVERYTHING.
* LIBERATING HUMANITY IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THERE IS NO OPRESSION.
* “THE COMPASSIONATE WISDOM OF JESUS BUDDHA”. IS THERE ANY BETTER KOAN THAN THIS ONE? I HAVE FUN WITH THE IDEAS PRECISELY BECAUSE I AM FREE.
* SILENCE IS NOT THE SAME AS THE ETHICS OF SILENCE. THE FIRST IS TO BE SILENT AND ACCOMPANY THE STATUS QUO, THE SECOND IS HUMILITY, CONTEMPLATION AND SERENITY TO REVOLUTIONISE EVERYTHING.
* SHOW ME THE INTERIOR AND THE EXTERIOR, AND I WILL PACIFY TO BOTH OF YOU.
* THE PAST IS WOVEN BY TRACES OF THE FUTURE. BUT THERE IS NOTHING HERE AND NOW.
* TRANSFORM SOCIETY IS NO MORE THAN THE OLD WAY OF “SELF CARE”
* I WOULD RATHER SEE THE DESTRUCTION OF BUDDHISM INSTEAD TO SEE A BUDDHISM REGULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT. THE COMPASSIONATE WISDOM IS NOT CULTURE, IT IS NATURE.
* MYSTIC DISGUISED AS ACADEMIC.
* THE WORD OF THE AWAKENED BEING IS CAPABLE OF OVERTHROWING AN OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT AND STOP ANY WAR.
* TRANSMITTING THE TRADITION IS A REVOLUTIONARY AND NON-ORTHODOX ACT. BEING A REVOLUTIONARY ONE IS TO EVOLVE RETURNING TO THE ROOTS.
*Just like Laozi’s finger,
Academic points towards the horizon of the Real,
But only the practice comes through the Path (Dao).
Beyond Materialism and Religiosity,
The Spirituality Recreates the Universe,
Without the distorting presence of Ego.
Directly perceiving the True Nature,
The Spiritual Master reveals that “mind” and “world” are mere concepts,
Because there is only one indivisible Reality.
The Awakened Mind is the reflection of this Wholeness,
Emerging from the Emptiness from where everything emerges and from where everything falls,
In order to learn and enjoy the existence.
* TAKE AN APOLITICAL POSTURE IS TO BE FROM A RIGHT-WING ORIENTATION BY DEFENDING THE STATUS QUO OF WAR, POVERTY, IGNORANCE AND POLLUTION; IT IS TURNING A BLIND EYE WHILE POLITICAL LEADERS LAUGH IN THE FACE OF THEIR NEIGHBOR’S DEATH. WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO BE FROM LEFT-WING ORIENTATION?
* IS THERE ANYTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL AND GOOD THAN THE EYES OF A LOST CALF?
*ONENESS WITH A CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE: THE PRESCRIPTION OF EVOLUTION.
* WE ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A HUGE EMPTINESS PLAYING TO BE HUMANS.
* THE LINEAGES OF CH’AN-ZEN BUDDHISM SHOULD INCLUDE TO LAO-TZU AND CONFUCIUS.
* MY SPIRITUAL TASK GOES BEYOND BUDDHISM: IT IS ALWAYS TO SAVE THE WORLD.
* TRUE SPIRITUALITY IS NOTHING BUT A TRIBUTE TO ALL THOSE WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES IN PURSUIT OF THE WORLD PEACE. ANYONE WHO STAYS AT HOME WORRYING ONLY ABOUT HIS /HER OWN FAMILY IS NOTHING BUT A FAKE.
* THE INDIVIDUAL CAN’T ACHIEVE ENLIGHTMENT BECAUSE THE EGO DOESN’T EXIST.THERE ARE NOT ENLIGHTENED PEOPLE, BECAUSE THE CONCEPT ITSELF OF WHAT IS A PERSON IT IS AN ILLUSION.THERE ARE ONLY FREE AND ENLIGHTENED ACTIONS, PRACTICES AND LIFESTYLES. GAUTAMA AND MARX UNDERSTOOD THAT.
* THE COSMOS IS A LIVING BEING, DON’T YOU FEEL IT?
* ETHICS IS THE ESSENCE OF THE ENTIRE BUDDHIST PATH. WITHOUT RECTITUDE IN EACH ASPECT OF OUR LIVES, THE WHOLE BUDDHISM IS NOTHING BUT A LIE.
* THE AWAKENED BEING HAS THE MOST PROFOUND AND GREATER WISH THAT EXISTS.
* REACH THE AWAKENING IS QUITE SIMPLE. WHAT IS TRULY COMPLICATED IS TEACHING TO THE WORLD TO DO IT. THIS UTOPY DOOMED TO FAILURE CONTINUE BEING THE BEST WAY OF LIVING.
* HOW I CAME TO THIS PLACE? I ALWAYS HAVE BEEN HERE, TEACHING THE PURPOSE (DHARMA).
* INSTEAD OF BUILD STATUES TO WORSHIP, BUILD ACTIONS IN ORDER TO HELP THOSE WHO SUFFER.
*IF THERE IS A GOD IN THE UNIVERSE, UNDOUBTEDLY IT IS IMPERFECT, IMPERMANENT AND INSUBSTANTIAL, AND IT WOULD BE LEARNING AT EVERY MOMENT. HOW CAN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT AN AWAKENED BEING MAKE NO MISTAKES? YOU HAVE A LOT TO LEARN YET.YOU ALWAYS WILL HAVE IT.
* THE HUMANITY OF THE FUTURE WILL BE MYSTICAL OR IT WON’T BE.
* WHERE DOES THE FUEL OF THE AWAKENING COME? THE DESIRE IS NOT THE ENEMY.
* CONSCIOUSNESS IS EMPTINESS, EMPTINESS IS CONSCIOUSNESS.
*ZEN IS THIS: FIRST, MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS, THEN, THERE ARE NO MOUNTAINS AND NO RIVERS, BUT LATER, ONCE AGAIN THERE ARE MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS. WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW YET IS THAT THIS PROCESS WILL ALWAYS REPEAT; IT NEVER ENDS. GETTING ILL IS BEING ATTACHED TO ONE OF THESE STAGES AND THAT IS NOT FLOWING OR CONTINUING LEARNING.
* BUDDHIST PEOPLE SHOULD GET AWAY FROM NARCISSISM, FROM IDEOLOGY AND FROM POWER. IN THE END, THIS PATH IS TO BE A VESSEL OF THE FORCE OF DAO.
* IF YOU WANT TO TALK WITH ANOTHER ONE, THERE IS THE DOOR.IF YOU WANT TO TALK WITH ME, COME INSIDE.
* WHAT PLACE DO WOMEN OCCUPY IN BUDDHISM? FIND OUT WHERE DOES THE NAME OF MAITRIYANA COME FROM.
* THOSE WHO CRITICISE US THEY WISH TO BE JUST LIKE US.
* WHY MANY BUDDHIST BOTHER FEEL FEAR TO RECOGNISE JESUS AS A BUDDHA? BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY “KNOW WHAT THEY DO”.
* PARAPHRASING THE POPE FRANCIS I, BUDDHISM WITHOUT A REVOLUTIONARY SOCIAL CRITICISM IT IS A “COFFE SHOP”
*OUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, THIS ONE DO THAT ALL THE TIME BY ITSELF. THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO IS GUIDE IN ORDER THAT THE CHANGE WILL BE THE PROPER. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.
* A BUDDHIST WHO HAS FEAR TO POWER IS SOMETHING PATHETIC, SUCH AS A SUBORNED REVOLUTIONARY ONE IS PATHETIC TOO.
*LIFE IS A SCHOOL. IT IS THE BEST UNIVERSITY AND THE BEST MASTER OF ALL. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND THIS AND CONTINUE LEARNING FROM THE CHALLENGES OF EVERY DAY?
* IN A DEWDROP THEY ARE CONTAINED ALL THE OCEANS. IN THE SMILE OF A BABY IS FOUND THE ENTIRE HUMANITY.
* BEYOND EMPTINESS IT IS WHOLENESS, AND BEYOND THE LATTER IT IS THE STARTING POINT. THE MEDITATION IS FOR THE HERE AND NOW.
* IN A WORLD OF SUPERFICIAL OR DEAD SPIRITUALITIES, THE MASTER ALWAYS HAS TO EXPERIENCE THE TEARS OF ALL THE BEINGS.
* THE ENTIRE TRIPITAKA CAN BE SUMMARIZED IN ONLY ONE LETTER: “a”. LACAN KNEW THAT.
* I MISS SO MUCH THE ZEN REBELS, BY BREAKING STATUES AND SETTING TEXTS ON FIRE. AGAINST THE REPETITION OF THE SAME THING, RADICALNESS IS THE ONLY CURE.
*WHY ARE WE MAKING NOISE? WHY ARE WE STRUGGLING? BECAUSE OF THE OPPRESSED ONES WHO DON’T LISTEN, BECAUSE OF THE OPPRESSED WHO DON’T EXPRESS THEMSELVES.
* WE ARE THE MAKERS OF THE UNIVERSE. UNDERSTANDING THIS IS SATORI.
* RECEIVING A PUNCH OR A GUN SHOT. IS IT PERHAPS DIFFERENT FROM RECEIVING A MOSQUITO BITE?
* TO SAY THAT A GOVERNMENT SEEKS PEACE IS AN OXYMORON. ENOUGH WITH THE ARMED FORCES!!THEY ARE THE EVIL IN THE WORLD.A BUDDHIST WHO DOES NOT SAY THIS HE/HER IS A COWARD. YOU WANT TO CREATE A WORLD OF PURE LAND, SO ASK THAT THE MONEY DESTINED TO THE ARMIES BE DESTINATED TO EDUCATION AND HEALTH. IT COULDN’T BE EASIER.
* AN ABRUPT AND SPONTANEOUS THOUGHT: A THOUGHT OF COMPASSION AND WISDOM. THAT IS THE BEST WEAPON TO DEFEND YOURSELVES FROM THE WAR ATTACKS.
* LOVE IS THE BEST CONTEMPLATIVE PRACTICE IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY.
* THE FAMILY IS A FORM OF PRIMITIVE SOCIAL ORGANIZATION. THE FRIENDSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP OF THE SANGHA IS PURE EVOLUTION.
* TO WHOM A GUIDE OF THE WORLD OR MESSIAH IS SAVING?
* BEING BUDDHIST IS NOT A SUBSTANTIAL QUALITY OF A PERSON. IT IS A WAY TO ACT. IT IS A COMPASSIONATE PRACTICE. THAT IS WHY THERE ARE FEW BUDDHISTS IN THE WORLD. MAY BE THERE ARE ONLY A COUPLE OF THEM.
* THE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN BEING IS THROUGH THE RECOVERING OF THE LOST LOVING LOOK WHICH IS FOUND IN EACH BABY.
*SOCIALIST ERA IS INEVITABLE.
* IN YEMEN, AN 8 YEARS OLD GIRL WAS FORCED INTO MARRIAGE WITH A 40 YEARS OLD MAN. HE RAPED HER UNTILL KILL HER. I CRIED A LOT. BUT EVERY TIME I OPEN MY EYES I CAN’T STOP FEELING HAPPINESS FOR LIFE. SUCH FEELING IS ESSENTIAL TO SAVE THE WORLD.
* BEING BUDDHIST IS NOT JUST FOLLOW TO GAUTAMA. IT IS FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF AN AWAKENED BEING. IS NOT, PERHAPS, THE COSMOS ALSO AN AWAKENED BEING?
* Mundane Illusions
Sometimes in favour and sometimes against
I swear to the Earth
Do not stop my Purpose
* WHEN HEIDEGGER KNEW D.T. SUZUKI HE SAID THAT EVERYTHING HE ALWAYS WANTED TO SAY, THE WORKS OF ZEN BUDDHISM ALREADY SAID IT BEFORE. THERE THE PHILOSOPHY DIED AND THE MAITRIYANA WAS BORN.
* WHEN I INVENTED THE “ZEN PSYCHOANALYSIS” MOVEMENT THEY ASKED ME WHO TAUGHT IT TO ME. THAT IS THE GREATER FOOLISHNESS OF ALL TIMES. MY ANSWER WAS: SUZUKI. BUT NOBODY HAS UNDERSTOOD THAT YET.
* OUR “FIRST FATHER” IS GAUTAMA. OUR SPIRITUAL GENES COME FROM HIS EVOLUTION.
* CALLING “BUDDHADHARMA” TO BUDDHISM IS NOT SOMETHING IGNORANT, IT IS WORSE; ACTUALLY IT IS REPRESSING THE “SANGHA” ASPECT. BUT FOR SURE, IT IS EASIER TO LIVE ALONE THAN CREATE LINKS WITH OTHERS. WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE COMMUNE, THERE IS NO BUDDHISM. A TABLE WITH THREE LEGS FALLS ON THE FLOOR IF LACKS OF ONE OF THEM.
* Being the Wholeness
Those who have gone
They exist among us
Everything is beautiful.
* Being and Nothingness
Here and Now
The supreme teaching
*HOW OLD AM I? 2.600 years old.
* BURNING ONESELF IN AN ACT OF PROTEST AGAINST THE WAR IS AS DIFFICULT TO ACCEPT AS DESTROY THE PUBLIC IMAGE THAT ONE HAS ABOUT ONESELF. BODY AND NAME, THEY ARE ALL ILLUSIONS.
* THE LINEAGE OF A BUDDHIST IS SOMETHING INSIGNIFICANT. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS TO KNOW HOW TO LIVE LIFE, HOW TO CURE THE MIND AND HOW HELP TO OTHERS.
*BUDDHISM AS A COUNTERCULTURE, SOCIALIST ETHICS, TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD… HOW THE U.S. GOVERNMENT COULD LOVE ME? CAPITALSM IS A CANCER, AND SPIRITUALITY IS THE CURE. UNDERSTAND THIS CAN OVERCOME EVERYTHING.
* HUMANITY NEVER HAS ABANDONED THE EDEN ¡SILLY MIND!
* NEW BUDDHAS, NEW CHRISTS. HUMANITY PREPARES ITSELF TO DEVOUR THEM.
* REALLY, THERE IS NOTHING MORE SACRED THAN WATCH A PLANT NEXT TO A SIEGE. WHY BUDDHIST PEOPLE FORGET THIS?
* BUDDHISTS SHOULD NOT COMMEMORATE THE AWAKENING OF GAUTAMA WITH FULL MOON; THEY SHOULD DO THAT WITH THE SUN OF EVERY DAY.
* TODAY THIS TEACHING IS REVOLUTIONARY OR DELUSIONAL BEFORE THE CLOSED EYES OF SOCIETY, BUT TOMORROW IT WILL BE NORMAL. EVERY ATTACK, EVERY DEFAMATION, THEY ARE CLOUDS IN THE SKY.
* AN AWAKENED BEING IS A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD, A CITIZEN FROM THE FUTURE DHARMIC CIVILIZATION. A BUDDHIST ALLIED WITH A GOVERNMENT HE/SHE IS A FALSE PERSON WHO IS REPLACING ONE RELIGION BY ANOTHER.
* LINEAGE IS NOT CRUCIAL IN BUDDHISM. BUT HAVING LIMITLESS COMPASSIONATE WISDOM IT IS. THE COMPASS IN LIFE IS NOT HAVING TITLES OR DIPLOMAS, BUT RATHER HAVING KNOWLEDGE AND LOVE.
* PERHAPS THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA, BUT FOR ME IS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER DAY IN THE WAY.
* IF THE BODHISATTVA’S PURPOSE IS COSMIC, THAT MEANS BUDDHISM IS FOUND AND IT IS EXTENDED OVER MILLION OF PLANETS OF THE UNIVERSE. FOR THE MAITRIYANA, THE BUDDHIST SPIRITUALITY IS ONE OF THE EVOLUTIONARY STAGES OF LIFE. HOWEVER, HUMANITY WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO KNOW “EXTRATERRESTRIAL BUDDHAS” IF IT STILL HAS NOT LEARNED TO RECOGNIZE TO THE COUNTLESS BUDDHAS FROM THE EARTH ITSELF.
* BUT, I WONDER IF BEING A BUDDHIST IS NOT, PERHAPS, BEING A LITTLE “SUPRA-EARTHLY”
* BEING A BUDDHIST: THE MOST SOLITARY PATH OF ALL. LIBERTY IS AN ANOMALY FOR SOCIETY.
