Is guilt a type of attachment?

Taking refuge of buddha, dhamma, sangha and lj :-P
I'm currently re-reading Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. When I read this page I had to type it out and post in my personal LJ but I thought it was worth of posting here.

I guess I could rant and say that I am here from the buddhists community, simply because of my concern that I am not learning anything in between some of the bickering....

.... but to be honest, I do not want to dwell on it - it does not seem worth it.

So I will just say that I am here to learn, and whatever people can share would be great. :)

Shri Ram Chandra Mission [Sep. 13th, 2006|09:03 pm]
Taking refuge of buddha, dhamma, sangha and lj :-P

Does anyone know anything about or have any experiences with Shri Ram Chandra Mission? They are hosting a free introduction to meditation seminar at my school on friday and I'm just not sure if it's worth my while to go. Any info anyone can relate would be greatly appreciated!

how pathetic... [Sep. 9th, 2006|05:36 pm]

(rant/vent mode on)

i was a member of the buddhists community here on el-jay

WAS a member until today

because there's all this drama as of late in the community
mainly caused be a certain person named son_of_art, a self confessed non-buddhist pagan who loved to stir shit up, tell people they weren't being good buddhists, resort to profanity and name calling and generally act like a fucking prick!

now on the buddhist profile sheet, it says
Maintainers will rarely -- virtually never -- act as moderators

well that was obvious, with how much shit this son_of_art person was able to put up in that community
and the pathetic thing was that people kept saying how he was teaching us compassion and all sorts of other dumb things
it's like someone being abused THANKING the person that's abusing them

well anyway, i made what i thought would be a humourous post to illustrate it

here's a screengrab of the postCollapse )

well i got a response from one of the moderators:

the maintainer's responseCollapse )

to which i responded back to him:

that's interesting

well i've not much use for it anymore anyway

good day to you

so it's ok to have some asshole causing all sorts of drama but a funny post about drama in general is deleted?

what-the fuck-ever

we CERTAINLY know drama don't we?

X-POSTED TO bodhisattvas

What to do when you lose all capabilities of being compassionate over a persistent pest.
Meditation?? Temporary fix, but the pest is still there before and after and the constant reminder of the pest is ever present.
One who seeks nothing more than to bother and annoy. Purpose of life seems to be a mission of being a thorn in your side, even if everything the pest has educated himself with says to do differently.

Move on to space that is pest free??? bodhisattvas
Seems like a good answer.

Follow on over to bodhisattvas and let the sanity return without pests and poor maintainership.

Join bodhisattvas and leave the waste of a community that is buddhists. It is time to take action and move on to greener pastures. Let the mod and the pest get off by themselves.

right action regarding internet [Aug. 18th, 2006|06:26 am]
Taking refuge of buddha, dhamma, sangha and lj :-P
I've noticed today that I avoided posting to another of the Buddhism LJ Communities because I did not want the 102 notifications of off topic responses and (in my opinion) unskillful words by those that I feel are only there to cause drama. This morning, post about things that simply have nothing to do with Buddhism (in my opinion).

So, what is right action for me? Leave the community is one idea, but it used to be (and may be in the future) a place of learning for me. Practice ignoring threads that I find unskillful, cultivating my non-judgementality? Or, do I approach those that are hurting the community (in my opinion) and ask them, as one user to another, to chill? Huh.

Answer: has to be one that is not surronded by that "in my opinion" part.

Buddhist Tattoos [Aug. 16th, 2006|10:23 am]
Taking refuge of buddha, dhamma, sangha and lj :-P
I am searching for ideas for a new tattoo. I currently have Aum Mane Padme Hum on my lower back and the Buddhas Eyes on my upper back....Oh I have a pic:

I want a piece to go up my forearm but cannot decide what.

Do any of you have tattoos of a Buddhist nature? Any ideas for a forearm piece?

I only want it on the under side of my forearm...not a sleeve style tat.
