Wisdom studies and Teachings



Dear Friends of the Center for Buddhist Studies,

We hope you will join us on Thursday (April 29) for a talk on “The Bamiyan

Stupas” by Professor Zamaryalai Tarzi.  This event will be held at 5 p.m.

in the IEAS conference room (2223 Fulton Street, 6th floor). An abstract

and speaker’s bio are included below.  Note that the talk with be given in

French with simultaneous English translation by Nadia Tarzi.

3.2.Questions and answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you ;

In Buddism , atta and anatta are dharmas that are paired off together until the ultimate limit of the mundane . According to the anatta doctrine , there is no permanent conscious substance that experiences these thoughts ; conscious thoughts simply arise and perish with no ” thinker ” behind them . This immaculate Buddhic self ( atman:soul ) is in no way to be construed as a mundane , impermanent ( ego ) of which it is the diametrical opposite .

may peace , happiness and wisdom be upon you always !

Q.179 – does no-self means such as unconsciousness , and self as consciousness ?

Dear Frined of Buddha Dharma, your above reasoning about anatta (no-self) is not correct. Where did you hear about immaculate Buddhisc self (atman: soul) ?! Unconsciousness , subconsciousness , collective unconscious and similar terms are used in deep psychology of Carl Gustav Jung. In Buddhism we teach about right understanding, awareness , mindfulness, concentration etc. which are parts of the Noble Eightfold path , as explained in the Visual Dharma Wheel.


Q.180 – if there is no permanent conscious substance , do consciousness and unconsciousness consider as no-self ? Consciousness and uncounsciousness are not no-self (anatta). They are skanda or aggregate .

Q.181 – Are body-form , sensation , perception , formation mental and consciousness also impermanent and no-self ?

may peace , happiness and wisdom be upon you always !

Five skandas or aggregates of a being are impermanent.

“Learn and forget “ is spiritual advice of master Morihei Ueshiba. If you lear / study in proper manner, you have direct insights and don´t accumulate conceptual ignorance. So: develop faith and devotion toward the Buddhas, pray and meditate every day.

“The origin of suffering to be in craving and ignorance , the feedback loop of conditioning and causation that leads to suffering in current and future lives . There are many kind of proceedings : it begins with ignorance and proceeds to sickness , old age , and death ; it begins with attachment and proceeds to birth ; it begins with birth and proceeds back to ignorance ; it begins with attachment and proceeds to ignorance . May peace and happiness be always upon you !”

Q.182 – As attachment proceeds the birth and ignorance , is it the first cause of samsara’s existence ?

You already asked so many questions about samsara, dear Friend . Why not to direct yourself toward Pure Land of Buddha Amitabha, praying with Faith and Devotion ?! The cause of samsara is ignorance or unawareness.

Q.183 – When attachment has disappeared , has samsara also disappeared ?

Attachment and aversion are two sides of ignorance or unawareness. Loving kindness toward sentient beings is not attachment. Don´t think that Buddhist practitioners are like cold stones, without any loving energy and compassion. Samsara dissapears when ignorance is purified into stainless Wisdom awareness. This can happen for a moment, but samsara can still re-occur in your mind. You tend to see samsara only as something outside. In meditation you learn that samsara is both : inside and outside.  Learn to pray to Buddha Amitabha , reciting His name with concentration and devotion. Then samsara will be purified.


Q.184 – If humans can simply remove their attachment , there will be no newcomer on earth . Can the 31 planes of existence disappear too ?

Human realm is only one of those realms. Every sentient being in the six realms of existence has individual causes , conditions and effects (karma). May all sentient beings safely reach the Pure land of infinite Light and Life. Homage to Amitabha Buddha.



4.1. ART “According to the Buddhist point of view, an artist`s intention is compassion. Artists create in order to make a link with other beings through their inner pure lements, and to transform their outer ordinary gross elements into enlightenment.”  Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche : Magic Dance- the Display of the self-nature of the five wisdom Dakinis, Jewel House Publ. House, New York,1985

4.2 President of Slovenia, dr. Danilo Türk, about the significance of environmental care for the survival of humanity.

5.1. Mother´s Day

inousch Netherlands

My dear Buddha Dharma, for it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow,
I like to share some strong beautiful
words by Mother Teresa with you:
”I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
And everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless…”
( Words by Mother Teresa)
Hugs and love for you dear friend, Ine

5.2. Answers :

theFriendlyHughes has made a comment on AMITABHA- BUDDHA OF INFINITE LIGHT:

Beautiful music, and (interestingly psychedelic imagery). Isn’t Pure Land Buddhism exactly like Christianity? Just believe in something specific and pray and worship him and you’ll be happy when you die?

I have great respect for the Buddha’s teachings – which is why Pure Land concerns me, it seems to go against them. The Buddha taught that there is no external saviour. Sorry, not trying to start a religious debate! I liked the video. 🙂

openbuddhistforum (uploader) @theFriendlyHughes Thank you for interesting thoughts. We don´t see any psychedelic imaginary in this Visual Dharma. This must be your subjective viewing . Will include your words in next alive Dharma teaching, May 9 (Interfaith dialogues), adding more explanation. Feel free to join shining circle of Buddha Dharma Friends – in WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS 🙂

To have great respect toward Lord Buddha´s holy Teachings means to study and know Buddha´s  Teachings.  Some who know little bit about Theravada Teachings sometimes try to limit Buddha´s omniscent Dharmas only to Theravada traditions. Shakyamuni Buddha transmitted countless Dharmas/Teachings according to mental capacities of the listeners. For example He also transmitted the Kalachakra Teachings . Pure land Buddhism is not like Christianity, because Pure land Buddhism is based on the Four seals of authentic Buddhist Teachings : impermanence, suffering,  no-self and nirvana. This understanding is found only in Buddhist Dharma. There are many levels of Christianity also – ritualistic, contemplative, gnostic…Years ago we had interesting Dialogue between Christianity and Buddhism (see Visual Dharma : Dialogues & Ars sacra for world peace). There is nothing wrong with “just believe in something specific and pray and worship him and you will be happy when you die “. It is much better to have faith as not to have any faith and to be materialist and nihilist ! Faith connected with virtuous way of life is very precious in all spiritual traditions. In Buddhism we also don´t neglect Faith. Pure land Buddhists do´nt only see the Amitabha Buddha as “external saviour”. Even if some see Him as “external saviour” – with Faith in Amitabha Buddha they will be reborn in Pure land of Buddha Amitabha , Pure land of infinite Light and Live. Such fortunate beings finished their samsaric existence, because Pure land of Amitabha Buddha is not part of samsara. Buddha Shakyamuni said : “For those who don´t have faith it is like they try to raise a plant from a burned seed…” Faith in the Buddhas , their Teachings and those who transmit pure Dharma  is therefore very important. It is part of the Triple Refuge of Buddhism. See Visual Dharma : About Buddhism http://www.youtube.com/user/openbuddhistforum#p/search/5/k2a0iFjgBJc

In all Visual Dharmas we publish extensive teachings with selected bibliographies which should be studied by all who wish to know more about Buddhist Dharmas .

May all beings safely reach Buddha Amitabha Pure land of Infinite Light and Life.

May there be harmony between all spiritual Paths and religions, based on virtuous way of life which begins with avoid killing of animals and eating meat, praying, meditating, doing good deeds…
