Yes, I am referring to the Sutta Nipata. Is it suppose to be taken as fact? I do not mean that as sarcasm, just that I am not a follower of Buddhism so I take these things as only opinion. If you meant that in another way, please let me know.

Do you take the Bible as fact? Or the Koran? Etc.

I am neither zen, nor Buddhist, but I really like this thread that you have started because it makes me...think!

lol...Joel, that was the most ingenious and devious thing I've seen you post. If people give their opinion agreeing/disagreeing on the Sutta Nipata quote, then that illustrates they haven't understood it.
You never picked the legs off of grasshoppers when you were young did you? kidding. don't answer that.

Harlan, if I took The Bible or Koran as fact, I would not be disposed to take the Sutta Nipata as fact, now would I?

Kintama, not sure if ingenious and devious is a good or bad thing (I'll take it as a compliment anyways ), just trying to spur some discussion. I agree that agreeing with the quote is pointless. But what is the alternate? To understand? To know?

The problem with zen types...is that they are too darn cryptic and devious. Fun on our part can come across as elitist, or as Budoc says 'hierarchical'.

No one should be scared off from voicing a reply on some Canon.

You hear that, all you Zen lurkers?

That's right, I see you out there, reading the posts and walking away. Get your butts in here and talk!!

Thats a good point harlan...you've justified me continuing to make an ass of myself in the name of learning!

Kintama, hard to know when you are in jest. Refer to quote for day3.

I am compassionate to myself... but not at the expense of seeing my limitations. sometimes I'm an goof, but I forgive myself.

about the day 4: I don't see anything negative with seeing and understanding a point of view or opinion and then either calling it your own or respectfully commenting on it...hey, isn't that called a 'forum' ?
