Yes. Thought the same...but if we didn't find something to talk about...this forum would be empty.

Quote:

In the end, it is meaningless to us, to any Buddhist or meditation practitioner what he finds there....Its an interesting story, don't get me wrong. I just don't think it should impact anyones practice more than a "Hmm. Interesting" and then let it go. The true practice of Zen.

So from now on I'll just post "Hmm. Interesting" to all your posts Harlan.

Seriously though, I think discussing is very important, but the whole finger for the moon aspect can't be forgotten. We focus to much on words and we forget to practice. Practice to much and we forget to speak.

Yay for balance.

lol. I'd gladly accept and would probably deserve anything you could spare to leave behind.

Ah, see how easily things can be misunderstood within 24 hours, let alone 1000 years.

I did not mean changing the Topic, I meant my username. It is a technical question since you managed to change yours.

You did not fall from the fence; you were pushed

I've been following this story and more and more suspicious things come out.

They hide him from view at night.

He has called himself a Rinponche... Which, is not a humble, enlightened thing to say.
A lot of what has "supposedly" said, and what has happened don't correlate very well.,

But, in the end. This is all heresay... I can't say for sure anything about him. I'd like to go and meet him, those who are on the road to enlightenment and those who have reached that certain plateu... They generate an energy that I've never felt before beyond that experience in another human being. Thus, I'd like to see what he felt like.

I don't see why you have to go to Nepal to feel that energy. Plenty of approachable and enlightened teachers in different traditions travel to the US. Heck, if you are 'into' the energy paradigm...you can get an energy high right off of e-mail.

Why do you think so many folks get sucked into this forum?

exactly. moreover, you do not need to seek enlightenment somewhere else, seek it in yourself and you will never need to go there, as you will already be there...

we are all Buddhas, we just forgot that...

Oh no, I didn't mean to "Feel" that energy as in, "its the only place I think I can get it."

I meant, if I were in his presence, I could guage his energy better than a picture. I could see if he was a fake or not.

I agree, energy travels via the internet oddly well... It kind of worries me sometimes.

We don't want our ISP's to hear that...they might start billing us for the extra energy.
