Dharma Discussion

Buddhism, Medicine, Philosophy, Tibetan Buddhism, wisdom culture

One of the key aspects and purposes of buddhistdesigns.com is to lead the community into a discussion over or concerning the Buddha Dharma. Today I would like to lead a forum within the community into a discussion on the ID, the ego, and the false view of I and mine.

Firstly, what is wrong with wrong view? Do you know what I mean by having wrong view? What is wrong view?

Secondly, how does that false view of a self promote attachment, hatred, pride, jealousy, doubt in the Three Jewels and self cherishing?

So, over to you. You can comment on your knowledge or lack thereof in the comments space below and I will respond. Don’t be shy. Community wisdom needs to improve.

You can also view the opportunity to discuss over the internet via Skype at http://stores.ebay.com.au/buddhistdesigns

Thank you, Vanessa Pollock

From the Buddhist viewpoint, all conditions of samsara, all suffering, the suffering of suffering, the suffering of change and pervasive suffering, these all stem from the three poisonous states of mind of attachment, hatred and ignorance. To overcome the three poisonous states of mind, we need to apply antidotes to these three main delusions.

To begin the journey of Buddhism, it is best to learn how to take refuge in a reliable object, in a reliable triple gem, the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
This series of instructions can guide you towards a greater sense and experience of inner peace, enjoyment and happiness.

What’s Going On at the Palace with the Children?

Buddhism, Culture, Medicine, News, Philosophy, Tibetan Buddhism, wisdom culture

Princess Charlotte is heading for divorce. Prince George, formally Henry the Eighth has swung his noose. Charlotte is unimpressed. Charlotte is determined to challenge Henry the Eighth, Prince George. He looks the part don’t you think? Charlotte feels she is the mother of Queen Elisabeth, feeling friendly and all with Great Grandma.

What a life these two children have ahead of them! Imagine, insights into their past lives, a belief in reincarnation, wonderful father and so forth. Wrath all the way, charges George, leading the battalion. Charles looks on amused. Days are happier now that everyone accepts three is not a crowd in a marriage, is it?

More on the frolicking escapades of the royal children later; anyone prepared to accept that an understanding of the Jataka Tales, the stories from past lives is more than a little acceptable for morning or afternoon news? Really, is it time that the western and eastern less so public embraced their own Bodhi mind, Buddha nature and got on with the task of aspiring to higher rebirth, liberation and of course, the ultimate goal of Buddhahood.

My morning encounter with Bashful Bob and Tyrannical Rex

Buddhism, Culture

vanessa-daylesford

Did you hear that GC – Bashful Bob and Tyranncial Rex are on the rocks and maybe not heading for divorce? No, this is not idle gossip, this is meaningful news reporting of a higher quality than that found in The Age Newspaper.

What’s been going on? Did Tyrannical Rex spend too much? Did Bashful Bob get upset? Or was Bashful Bob seen falling for another woman? Bashful Bob says he’s not in the wrong now, but perhaps was in the past. Lama Zopa says that’s not the end of it. That’s not the story in it’s entirety. For breaking news, for the inside story on what’s happening around the world, in the soup of samsara, and how to avoid wrong doing, Buddhist Designs and Enlightened Wisdom is in the know.

Who magazine thinks it does this best. I am not one to start a war on the subject, but they are referred to as a gossip publication, which can’t do them any good. I know for sure, and this is confidential, ignorance sucks. Don’t go around spreading false rumours, lies, idle gossip and innuendo. It’s wrong to do that. Bashful Bob is currently feeling fairly disgusted with Tyrannical Rex’s take on the marriage that occurred in Venice, was it not? Romance apparently then was all the news, as was the ring of course, but what to make of things that have occurred in somewhat of a dream state since that time? It’s all like a mirage, a dream and an image of the moon on a still lake. Samsara and nirvana lack inherent existence, whilst cause and effect and dependent arising are unfailing.

Wait! I don’t see idiots standing on the sideline do I, praying for the failure of this marital union? I hope not.
