To all or none,
In Buddhism death is an often spoken subject.What I will write,You might find strange,incomprehensible or just accept it for what it is.

In Buddhism there is no I,nor self.This is called attman.
In Death ,a word called Samsara,is used,to demonstate the constant re-birth and Death in every Nanosecond that is a NOW.
So that it is why a self cannot exist,we call it no-self.

In buddhist phylosophy ,you are never born and you never die.
The container that you represent is only to carry the karma
of many before you,and many after you ,unless you attain Enlightement.At that point The cycle of birth and death will terminate with the physical death,of the carrier,that will have attained Arahatship,Buddhahood or an enlightened one that chooses to come back to earth as a Bodhicitta,giving his new form of life ,trying to have all humans and sentient beings Enlightened.

When a shell attains Enlightenment/Nirvana,the Karma he was carrying is destroyed.In buddhism,everything is an Illusion.

Something to ponder on,

With comprehension

To all or none,

Had written another post,but lost it computorland.

So ,The life you are living right now,is the continuum of the karma you received,at
inception.some like me receive,harsh karma.However,the survivor in me,made it
That I have been searching for happiness for 36years now.travelled many roads.
Finally I ended in Buddhism,where all the answers needed I found.Iknow I have no soul just a karma,that I am kind of cleaning by detachment,love for others,compassion,loving kindness,knowing all the time,that I will age,decay and die.
Too bad I do not have with me the dhamapada,where Buddha predicts the aging decayying and death.
You can :clean: your karma by doing what I am doing.
However do not forget you will age,decay and die.That is life.

To all or none,

If one doesn't know how to die,one can hardly know how to live.Because death is a
part of life.

In buddhism,monks woman or man are asked to meditate on the death,decomposition of a body,until there are only bones and also when the bones will
disappear.
For advanced monks only.

To all or none,

Text by Buddha,sent to me by BS and shared by Loong

Friends:The 10 Contemplations is Daily Buddhist Routine!


The Blessed Buddha once said:
Any Bhikkhu contemplates this body from the soles of the feet upward,
and from the top of the hair downward, as a disgusting frame with a skin
stretched over it, filled with many impurities: This body consists only of
head-hairs, body-hairs, nails, teeth, skin, flesh, sinews, bones, marrow,
kidneys, bile, lymph, pus, blood, sweat, fat, tears, tallow, spittle, snot,
joint fluid, and urine. Just as if a sack with openings at both ends were
full of many various kinds of grain: Wheat, rice, mung beans, kidney beans,
sesame seeds, husked rice and a man with good eyesight, pouring it out,
were to reflect: This is wheat. This is rice. These are mung beans. These are
kidney beans. These are sesame seeds. This is husked rice, in exactly the
same way, monks, a monk reflects on this very body upward from the soles
of the feet, and downward again from the hair-tips of the head...

To all or none,

Each time I think or talk of death,or hear others speaking of death, half a smile appears in my face.

To all or none,

For those that died today,in the massacre,it is only part of the continuum.It was your karma ,to die today.At some moment in the future your karma and your last piece of conciousness,will enter another vessel,the woomb of your carrier until you by yourself, breathe, and continue the karma that accompanied you at re-birth.

May your new life be one of love,compassion, non suffering as quick as possible.May Buddha accompany you.

To all or none,
One nite on an evening show,the H.H.Dalai-Lama was asked by the host,Why were these children die at such a young age.Another school shooting had happened.

The Dalai-Lama,answered ,without hesitation,it was their karma.

Impermanence in Buddhism are the pillars of the whole system.
Nothing is permanent.Every thing is of passage,except the karma.
Itself being destroyed when the last carrier attains enlightenment.The karma ends.

Today ,many people were affected by the mass killing.However ,they will forget it and go on with their lives.

Some however ,their lives have been changed until their death
occurs.The wounded ,the first respondants,the policeman,everyone
inthe school,but mostly the one closest to the dead children.

This is or was at that instant part of their karma.First ,hate,anger,depression,and hopefully afterwards ,pardon,deliverance of suffering,suffering being impermanent too.

What happened today was close to your homes.However these massacres happen every day everywhere around the world .Few lines in the newspapers if they are lucky to interest the financial side of the US.

Having not attained arahathood ,and far from it.ithurt me a bit,but specially that things are worsenings.
May man discover Compassion,non attachment to money, may the bullying also disappear.May the parents take time to speak to their children,see what's happening with them.It all starts at home,I beleive.

May Buddha help you find a new path,the path of love and care ,instead of the path of possessions,and selfcenterdness.

If I had the power to remove the suffering of all of those affected today,I would take their suffering.

To all or none,

Text by Sogyal Rinpoche

According to the wisdom of Buddha,we can actually use our lives to prepare for death.We do not have to wait for the painful death of someone close to us or the
Shock of terminal illness to force us into looking at our lives.Nor are we condemned
To go out empty handed at death to meet the unknown.We can begin ,here and now,to find meaning in our lives.We can make of every moment an opportunity to change and to prepare-wholeheartdly,precisely,and with peace of mind-for death and eternity

In the buddhist approach,life and death are seen as one whole,where death is the beginning of another chapter of life.Death is a mirror in which the entire meaning of life is reflected.

To all or none,

Nothing ,nothing at all has a lasting character.The Buddha said:

The existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A life time is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
Rushing by .like a torrent down a steep mountain .

Taken in the Tibetan book of Living and dying by S.Rinpoche

To all or none

To those that read my last 2 entries,In the book of living and dying. Last week a young woman
32 years of age died of liver cancer,in my village.A young man 30
years old, playing sports ,dropped dead.No apparent reason as per the coroner.

I know most of you are into materalistic world of wanting more.
Karma and death do not care about that.

Please prepare yourself.
