  1. Hey there, hi there, ho there!

    Welcome Jainarayan to LU
  2. Avatamsaka Sutra

    From the Avatamsaka Sutra... Great bodhisattvas have no attachment to Buddha and do not develop attachments; they have no attachment to the teachings and do not develop attachments; they have no attachment to lands and do not develop attachments; they have no attachments to sentient beings and do not develop attachments. They do not see that there are sentient beings, yet they carry on educational activity, civilizing and teaching ways of liberation; they do not give up the practices of bodhisattvas with great compassion and great commitment. Seeing buddhas and hearing their teachings, they act accordingly; trusting the buddhas they plant roots of goodness, ceaselessly honoring and serving them. They are able to shake infinite worlds in the ten directions by spiritual powers; their minds are broad, being equal to the cosmos. They know various explanations of truth, they know how many sentient beings there are, they know the differences among sentient beings, they know the birth of suffering, they know the extinction of suffering; while knowing all acts are like reflected images, they carry out the deeds of bodhisattvas. They sever the root of all subjection to birth. They carry out practices of bodhisattvas for the sole purpose of saving sentient beings and yet do not practice anything. Conforming to the essential nature of all buddhas, they develop a mind like an immense mountain. They know all falsehood and delusion, and enter the door of omniscience. Their knowledge and wisdom are broad and vast and unshakable, due to the attainment of true enlightenment. This is the insight of practical knowledge of equally saving all sentient beings in the ocean of birth and death.

    Welcome to LU Shanbmugam!
  7. New Chat Link

    P.S. Thank you Shady for the suggestion.
  8. Hi Everyone, We found an alternative for Chat and we are still looking at trying to integrate it with LU but until then the room is open and the following is the link to sign in for now. This version of chat, has a phone app, desktop client or you can use the web interface. See you in chat
  9. Why the need for a transition period? I guess that also means we are one or two generations early?
  10. That is great riju. Thank you very much for sharing what you have already. Much I didn't know..
  11. It reminds me of the path less traveled and in spirituality that path is the one inward.
  12. To me the gate has the same meaning as path. Narrow is the path and difficult is the way that leads to non duality and there are few who find it.
  13. Not rocket science.

    Thank you running. I didn't know any of that. Very interesting.
  14. New coming...

    Very cool. Thank you very much
