Morfar på jagt efter ny religion part II

To do no evil;

To cultivate good;

To purify one's mind:

This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

--The Dhammapada


The Buddha was born Siddhartha Gautama, a prince of the Sakya tribe of Nepal, in approximately 566 BC. When he was twentynine years old, he left the comforts of his home to seek the meaning of the suffering he saw around him. After six years of arduous yogic training, he abandoned the way of self-mortification and instead sat in mindful meditation beneath a bodhi tree.

On the full moon of May, with the rising of the morning star, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, the enlightened one.

The Buddha wandered the plains of northeastern India for 45 years more, teaching the path or Dharma he had realized in that moment. Around him developed a community or Sangha of monks and, later, nuns, drawn from every tribe and caste, devoted to practicing this path. In approximately 486 BC, at the age of 80, the Buddha died. His last words are said to be...

Impermanent are all created things;

Strive on with awareness.

Superlækkert der, en religion baseret på en gut der sidder seks år under et træ, sådan en professionel version af Isaac Newton.

LIzelotte siger jeg skal være ateist, men det virker lidt farveløst.

what to do what to do...

Lav da din egen, når ham Buddha kan, kan du vel også.

Men du skal nok finde på noget mere originalt end at sidde under et træ i seks år, hvis du skal "sælge" ideen til hoben, den slags hopper man ikke på mere.

Mmm Så faktisk engang at nogen havde lavet en "Church of Sid Vicious" måske var det en ide at tage handsken op fra dem?
