15849Re: Can the truth set you free?
- Jan 9, 2008Great observations. Yes, it may
be the destiny, but not if the
universe is cancelled - or humans
go about to destroy the eco system
on earth entirely. So, agreed, not
There are 2 classes of Bodhisattva.
Those who have attained Buddhahood
(enlightenment by any other name
is still enlightenment) and yet
wait at the gate through which
they have already passed, and
then come back, for the arrival of
all sentient beings. The others
are those who are still seeking
to overcome the false, and so
are, in a sense, naive Boddhisattvas.
Clarity, as in the first category
of Boddhisattva, leaves no question
and brings an abiding recognition
of the false.
Also agree that many gurus perpetuate
the false. Gurus are over-promisers
for the most part. In their enthusiasm
for the enlightenment they have
attained - and the sure sense of
the (potential) destiny of humankind
to enter the cosmis conscious realm -
they "promise" to guide the seeker.
But they can only guide by pointing,
and cannot teach that which cannot
