Don’t Hurt a Buddha

What Does That Title Mean!

A. Those who practice Buddhism do so without any expectation of grace or favour.  They do it for two reasons:

  1. To Improve their own life and continuing existence
  2. To improve other’s lives and future existences

You don’t have to believe that they do this – after all, it could all be a big deception, couldn’t it?

But a true Buddha, revealing their Buddha nature and pointing out the iniquities and devilish qualities of the world, does believe this.  Wholeheartedly.

This is why, in all the Buddhist schools, there is a phrase passed down from eons back.

Those who vex and trouble [the practitioners of the Law] will have their heads split into seven pieces.

Now What Does That mean!

It’s an allegory, that quite often is remarkably accurate….   I’ve seen it happen;  where people have vexed and insinuated against someone that’s revealing their Buddha nature – and then come a cropper!  You name it:

  • Bad illnesses
  • Bad finances
  • Bad relationships
  • Brain cancer
  • Business or company breakups
  • Family break up or polarisations

3000 Realms in a Single Moment

If Buddhism were just capable of punishing without change, then it’d be no good.  It’d be just like Judgement Day, which it’s not.  The principle of 3000 realms in a single moment [of life] means that everyone can be bad and good at the same time.

Really.  That’s what it means.  It’s the complete essence of Buddhism.

Therefore, even very bad people, who have “harmed or vexed” a Buddha, can reveal their good side and instantly become a Buddha – just like that!

Conversely, anyone can go over to the dark side of animality.  At any time.

Belief

You don’t have to believe any of this, of course.

But I do.

  • From someone with the very worst excesses of delusions and animality being transformed instantly to a person of great note – I believe it.
  • For someone that harms a Buddha having their head [metaphorically or literally] smashed into seven pieces – I believe it.

Like I said, you don’t have to believe it – but I do, and so do millions of Buddhists. We know what will happen because we’ve seen it.

Sub Text

Why am I talking like this?

A. Because, as a practitioner of Buddhism, I’m being attacked for trying to protect people and to turn the attacker into something better;

And it’s my warning.

I don’t have to do anything – the universe will make it so, (as Captain Jean-Luc would say).

References

These are the instances when the famous Buddhist monk Nichiren talks about a “head being split into seven pieces” from his writings.  As I say, you don’t have to believe it.  All that matters is that I do.

For a clue to what this about, this is a neat definition of the term “scammer”, taken from The Urban Dictionary:

One who does everything in his/her power to steal from another, usually by means of trickery, deceit, and force. With the accesibility and anonymousity that the internet provides, scammers have become increasingly prevalent in modern times. Usually driven by personal greed or even outright amusement, they are unhindered by sympathy or morals and are the very face of human corruption.

One’s State of Life

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Our existence in this world can be likened to a dream.

The issue of the greatest importance and eternal relevance is how we face death, the inescapable destiny of all living beings.

For in the face of death, external factors such as social status or position in the organization count for naught.  Everything depends on one’s faith, one’s state of life.

–  Daisaku Ikeda

Ikeda is getting on now (he’s 80), but I’ve absolute certainty that he lives by these words.  Despite the fact that death can come in an instant for any one of us, it’s a fact of life that as we get older, we become more and more aware of the day of reckoning. (If anyone disagrees with that then they are either kidding themselves or are wholly non-sentient or past caring.)  I’ve no doubt that Ikeda thinks these thoughts frequently.

Sword Of DamoclesPondering the nature of our existence as an independent being, untrammelled by  the whims of religions tied to destiny, punishment or higher forces, is at the very heart of Buddhism, I think.

The Sword of Damocles does not hang over our heads, punishingly dropping on some Judgement Day when we are dead.

Nirvana is here and now, not when you die.  You will not be forgiven for any possible sin you may have done.  You will not be praised as a heroic martyr for mass-murder.  Redemption is in the present, and we must try to live the very best lives we can.

As E.T. said,

Be Good.

E.T. - be good!

E.T. - be good!

…and the H.P. Lovecraft book?  It’s simply one of the best titles there is.  I like the sound of it.

Sex Machine – even truer, a reprise

Costume of Penises

Costume of Penises

Judgement day, the day when designer bodies become widely available and because of the human proclivity for sex, will be mainly sex and/or cosmetic changes, is getting ever closer. In fact, surely penis or breast enlargement or vaginal tightening are only cosmetic operations as the person is not going to die or suffer indignities thrown at them whilst walking down the street if they’re not done?

Despite everything I’ve said or everything that’s been written about Sex Machine, it just amazes me sometimes, to witness the approach of this day. This site, GeckoBlue, posted some pictures for a joke and the top one I’ve reproduced here. The bit in Sex Machine went like this:

I’ve got pricks on my toes and one on my nose
And some on my back that nobody knows
But the one I got first still grows and grows
I’ve got a set of clits hanging in my ear
I’ve been to the doc to get a smear
He told me I had gonorrhea

A recent comment here disagreed with my interpretation of unfolding events but for something written in 1979 about a future world, I think our comments were especially prescient. Original (successful) plastic surgery was done to remake the faces and hands of pilots (terribly) burnt in the Second World War, say. Ask yourselves, what are the likely statistics for plastic surgery now regarding the split between burns injuries and tit enlargements? And when designer gene manipulation is fact, how many procedures will be to relieve Cystic Fibrosis etc and how many procedures will be for sexual or facial enhancements?
