I feel like I have to share, and be less stingy with my Dharma. Please ask, I will clarify all questions concerning this Dharma.

Friends, be not heedless. Heedlessness is death, the heedful die not.

I will urge you, I will instruct you. If you would let me, and in no long time you will abide and remain in the goal of the holy life.

Here there is no stinginess, here is completion.

You can't be the Tathagata because *I* am the Tathagata.

The point I'm making is that I have something valuable to share. The point you're making is that you believe in and idolize this Richard figure and thus have the right to troll whoever you want in verbal arguments.

Sound about right Claudiu?

P.S

You believe this because you have adopted Richard's view that there are no consequences for your actions. Which is extremely dangerous.

What exactly do you bring to this community? Besides pro-Richardism. Which in Buddhist terms is a mix of hedonism, annihilationism and lack of belief in the efficacy of actions (Karma).

Richard also misses the point by attributing the cause of suffering to the existence of an entity.

P.S

Sakkaya ditthi.

first it would be good if you write some kind of outline about general type of your enlightenment and what is needed to get there

is it the 'realistic' kind which is blissless and dry or something that is for a change interesting ?


It's literally just canonically what the Buddha taught.

It leads straight to the end of suffering, to cessation, to peace and dispassion. It is visible here and now. What is seen are the four noble truths, the path itself is the noble eightfold path.

I currently dwell in the state of a sekha, trainee. Wherein I touch the deathless with my body, which is essentially jhana. In other words I witness the truth with my body. I am a living example of what the Buddha taught.

I have no idea why no one here takes me seriously, but I suppose it has to do with my thirst for attention and the fact that I don't meditate in a formal sense.

I do practice jhana however, but it is not what you describe, which is basically throwing your mind at an object. Rather I am absorbed in contentment, secluded from sensual pleasures, witnessing this Dharma with my body.

Does that help?

James Yen, I am sincerely sorry that you missed my point.

My point was that I am the Tathagata.

I have gone fully beyond. I have the ten Tathagata powers. I can fully encompass another mind with my own. And etc.

Frankly you have not really shown me the respect due to a Tathagata. This is bad karma and you'll end up in a worse destination when you die. Not to mention that you falsely claim to be a Tathagaga, which is plain as day to me because of the Tathagata powers that I possess.

So James, stop lying please and you'll do yourself a great favor.

Renunciation is quite an integral part of the noble path. Good work! If you keep it up maybe eventually you can earn enough merit to be born in a better station. I doubt that you can make it though, and my opinion is worth a lot since I am a Tathahata.

Did you note the boredom?

I don't know why you would since it has nothing to do with anything but did you note it?

If yes then good. Also note that you noted the boredom and that you noticed the noting.

If not then note that you didn't note it.

Keep it up and one day you'll be super good at noting!
