Rama Rao Das aks,
“Oh! my Guru please tell me,
What is the essence of the three
Attained by the Buddha under the Bodhi tree.
What is the enlightened souls’ eternal way
That he found at the midnight of full moon day.
Be gracious and let me have Your word
Many a times these have been heard.
Buddham Saranam Gachchami!
Dharmam Saranam Gachchami!
Sangam Saranam Gachchami!”

My Guru Siddha Nath says,
“Oh! My son, taking refuge all the time in Buddha,
Righteousness and the community of saints.
This is the sum and substance of the three
Acquired by the Enlightened Buddha under the tree.”

Rama Rao Das says,
“Thanks, Oh, my Eternal Father dear!
Only by Your grace, truth is quite clear;
Resting at Your lotus feet is
The Buddham Saranam Gachchami!
Practicing Your word is
The Dharmam Saranam Gachchami!
Adoring our Fore-Gurus is
The Sangam Saranam Gachchami!”

*** Salutations to the shoes of my Eternal Father Guru Siddha Nath ***

No Soul, no Buddha

Simple as simple is.

"I am awake!" "I am not awake." "I" Am I?" "I Am!"

Unmanifest Reality, inconceivable; timeless, spaceless, changeless.

Manifest actual; immaculate conception; I Am/world; time, space, ever-changing, unreal.

What defines a human being is the ability to conceptualize

Am I merely a concept spilling onto the page?

What is Real?

Who asks?

What knows?

Re: No Soul, no Buddha

The whole world is singing the never ending song of 'I'.
I read one more. There is no Soul and no Buddha but your 'I'.

Keep it up. 'I' doesn't know Soul, Buddha, Jesus, sages, saints, seers, etc.
It knows only 'I', 'I' and 'I'. Hope your concept of 'I' is well received by the masses. Your 'I' is real and 'I' of others is false. Keep it up.

I think you completely

I think you completely misunderstood the precious things Christmas tries to tell you - from all things, what is certainly unreal is the "I", of others as well as of you (you are not different than others although your ego may try to claim so), it's the "I am", the sense of being that is real, maybe the only thing that you can say that is real.

Re: I Think You Completely

If 'I' is unreal find what you are 'I' is.
Saying this is real, this is not real is not truth.
Truth is beyond thought, word and deed.
Unless you practice truth in thought, word and deed, you cannot know of truth.
I have not misunderstood, it is you who have misunderstood.
Truth is beyond speculations and discussions.

Re: Truth

It doesn't take away from or add to perfection to talk or not talk. Buddha was tempted to keep silent, then he used concepts that pleased him, and many were confused and became followers. Buddha of course did not follow anyone or any doctrine. His enlightenment was the simple and profound realization, "I am awake!" Nothing confusing about that. He realized that he is awake "Now", not in the past or future. Awake in the "Now!", a word that is gaining increasing currency, all the Icons vanish as if they never were. This is not to disparage Buddha, Christ, Krishna, or any awakened. The Unmanifest is the only Real, Truth. What name or form can be attached to it other than the timeless voice of silence. This realization is what it means to be "Awake", awake from the dreamer self/world. Simple as simple is. We can discuss anything under the sun but it has no effect on Reality. We can agree, disagree. Not a concept will touch It, nor the appearing or disappearing of a thousand universes. Concepts like "birth" and "death" are meaningless to the inconceivably Real, all concepts are meaningless. We live in a manifest conceptual world, or it lives us, in our openness as it appears, including these words and the words of saints, the perceived computer, the perceivable "tree," "sky", "flowers", "river", all concepts appearing and disappearing, passing through time and space, flowing to their source. Everything amounts zero in the end. "I Am/world is" effortless, spontaneous. Prior to that, nothing. That which changes cannot be real. Truth is eternal, It cannot be practiced. Simple as simple. is.

Re: Re: Truth

You are free to think, speculate and have opinion on Lord Buddha, Lord Jesus, Lord Krishna and other saints and sages of the past. How far it is based on truth is the point for the wise to discuss.
Unless one becomes a Buddha or a Christ in true spirit his words, opinions and expressions are only a mere babbling of a child. They have no value among the wise and the truthful.
It is foolish to copy Buddha who sacrificed His kingdom to know what the truth is. It is doubly foolish to copy Jesus who sacrificed His life for others.
Singing the song of "I am awake" cannot make one reach truth. For this can be sung by anybody. Without 'You' who is going to listen to 'I'.
You are right reality cannot be known by discussions. It is a matter of practice, practice and practice alone. It is well known what Lord Buddha and Jesus and others practiced to reach truth.
I completely disagree with you that truth cannot be practiced. Only by practicing truth Buddha, Jesus reached or realized the absolute truth.
To reach truth one has to overcome lust, anger, greed, ego etc. by practicing truth in thought, word and deed.
Without overcoming these obstacles what one says, does, thinks and feels is only a projection of one's ego (there is no difference between ego and 'I'). Only one's ego is awake when one says, "I am awake".

Practice, Top down view.

Ah so. How many lifetimes have you been practicing, how many lifetimes will you practice? You may have been practicing five minutes ago, you may practice five minutes from now, yet practice, practice, practice will end when time runs out What will you have gained, what will you have lost?

How does one practice the Timeless and Spaceless? I wouldn't walk across the street to hear Buddha holding forth now. I know exactly what Buddha is and he knows exactly what I am; no separation by space-time, name or form, thinking.

If one wants to practice, practice, practice, who are I/we to stop their enjoyment? My position is neutral, detached. I love the Universe as myself without the desire to interfere. Everything is wonderful and in order, everything appears and disappears and I remain content.

Re: Practice, Top down view.

You again proved that your comments are babblings of a child.
You are free to live in your hallucinations and none is going to object it. But if you say one reaches truth without practicing truth (overcoming obstacles of lust, anger, greed, ego, etc.) cannot be tolerated.
Be content in your 'I' ie your ego. Again you only promoted and projected your ego by using the word 'I'.
It is foolish to claim of knowing Buddha without practicing the teachings of the Buddha. This is truth and every wise man knows it.
Even dogs are neutral, happy and content in biting blank bones.
Fools think of reaching truth by talking, speculations and discussions without practicing truth in thought, word and deed.

Fool is always a fool
Though he went to school.

Fool will never
Be made clever.
No medicine is ever
Found for mental fever.

Re: Wasting Time & Energy

You are right. Don't waste your time and energy in writing comments. It is better if time and energy are spent in practicig truth in thought, word and deed or practicing the teachings of Lord Buddha, Jesus and other saints and seers to reach truth.
