All suffering is individual. The cause of suffering is delusion, and attachment. That little sister will learn someday that it was not her brother's going away that causes her pain, but her perception and reaction to his going away. Her attachment causes her suffering. She will learn and one day be capable of releasing her attachment to delusion, and so will be released from this suffering. Maybe if her brother comes back and teaches the wisdom he may gain from his meditation, he will in fact help her to be releaved from all her suffering.

This is not to say her brother is or is not a Buddha...only he could know this. The important thing is to keep practicing.
Because there is no "other", there is no one besides You who is responsible for your own enlightenment/salvation.




I think I would rather be sad than unattached. I've tried both.

I also think that if this guy knows that people miss him, he is deluding himself. What a waste of his time.

Would having a bad memory qualify as being under the "unattached" category?

I've been somewhat unattached in my past. Having my father working for the military I moved around and had friends move away somewhat often in my past. I think I learned to be unattached to people and places so I wouldn't get hurt as much when the inevitable happened. I don't mean completely unattached, more of less-attached.

I like my level of attachment, whatever it may be (very, very hard to describe)

FYI:

Not really related, but the December 2005 issue of National Geographic has a piece on Buddhism.

I think it's like Schrodinger's cat.

Cat?

No cat?

Who can be sure?


Interesting that he has taken the name of Dorje.
Which is the Thunderbolt symbol "weapon" found in Tibet and India.

An update on the strange story:

Missing Buddha boy reappears in southern Nepal

Published Tuesday, December 26, 2006
http://www.twoharborsmn.com/asap/index.cfm?page=asap_view&id=D8M8Q0Q80
The missing Buddha boy is back.

The teenage boy who many believe is the reincarnation of Buddha has reappeared in the jungles of southern Nepal months after he went missing, an official said Tuesday.

ABOUT THE BOY

Ram Bahadur Banjan, 15, was last seen March 11 in a forest where he had meditated allegedly without food and water for 10 months. Thousands of Hindus and Buddhists flocked to see him every day.

Banjan disappeared from his meditating spot among the roots of a tree in Bara, about 100 miles south of the capital Katmandu, where he had sat cross-legged and motionless with his eyes closed.

Many followers believe Banjan is a reincarnation of Gautama Siddhartha, who was born not far away in southwestern Nepal around 500 B.C. and later became revered as the Buddha.

Buddhist priests who visited the boy, however, said he was not the incarnation of Buddha. The priests did believe the boy had been meditating for months.

Buddhism teaches that right thinking and self-control can enable people to achieve nirvana -- a divine state of peace and release from desire. Buddhism has about 325 million followers, mostly in Asia.

SPOTTED BY HERDERS

The boy was spotted by cattle herders in the jungle Sunday and a team of police and officials was sent Monday to investigate, said Harihar Dahal, an administrative official in the area.



Speaking to those gathered around him, Banjan said he had been at the same spot for three days.

"Apparently there were some people who spotted me. I was deep in meditation and did not even know that there were people around," he said.

Doesn't sound like he was meditating...sounds like he was sleeping.

thanks for following the story harlan...I bet in another 6 months 'buddha boy' will have a movie deal and vegas schedule. -either that or he'll open a convience store in Soho.

thats the tricky thing with fame...never know which way it goes - they luv ya - they hate ya ....

What I don't understandis why nobody brought up Buddha's words which I believe were somthing like "Once enlightenment is rerached the cycle of reincarnation ends".

If this is true then how can this boy be the reincarnation of Buddha? (assuming buddha was enlightened in the first place and the rule applies).
