HotWingAgenda: doglover: HotWingAgenda: Since when do we have our own senior counsel of leaders?  Buddhism is a philosophy and decentralized school of thought, not an organized religion.  All our leading scholars are centuries dead, anyhow... not in a position to be groping anyone.

... reads TFA...

Oh, not actual Buddhists.  Taoists and Shintoists claiming the name and symbolism of Buddhism in order to sound cool and get money and political power.

Actually Buddhism is quite well organized and has been from the outset.

The Buddha, the darma, and the sangha.

The Buddha, the teachings, and the community.

You CAAAAAN be a Buddhist alone, but that's a piss poor application of the middle path. Ideally you should be helping others find the way and if not at least easing their suffering. An organized temple, especially one that helps with healing, sickness, and deaths, is almost essential for a Buddhist community. If you're not organized, you're helping fewer people than you could be, right? If grieving mothers don't have a monk to talk to, who'll help them be strong in front of their kids? Who'll keep your ancestor's graves clear of vines and bird shiat?

You just rendered a great description of Taoism and other organized Eastern religions.  Which has f*ckall to do with Buddhism.  Buddhism is not about communities, or parents, or dealing with other people at all.  The whole point is looking inward to know yourself, and therefore achieve greater understanding of the basic mechanics of the universe.

What the hell are you talking about?

Just because you're in the West doesn't mean everybody thinks like you or how you fantasize Xanadu & Orientalism to be... but, free Tibet, and fight the man, or something.

Tibet is ...


Oh shiat! Two East Asia experts in the house. It's on like Donkey Kong!
