There is a clear distinction between creating the formulas themselves and creating techniques to effectuate the formulas.
You are right. I meant the methods corresponding with the formulas.
I don’t quite understand why you smile (implied condescension) because I pointed out this important fact in Buddha’s history – that his mother died during his birth.
You ‘tunned in’ to Buddha and connected his mother’s death to Buddha’s talking about suffering as the primary cause. That makes me smile, but not way you think. The post you made on that was errased a few days after from the thread you had with Blackhalk. The tread remains but the post is missing, so I can’t put the link.
Does that mean you think he is exempt from normal obsessions that humans develop over such traumas?
Absolutely not. But he was certainly ready for this path and to overcome the obsticles like that. There is no accident that you yourself follow your path and have to overcome the obsticals connected with your body that other people can’t.
That he was really already at birth a God immune from such traumas, who merely used his mother’s body as a vessel so he could come in and create a new religion?
No, he was’t immune, and he worked really had to work through them. But I see by your comment about religion that you are misinformed what Buddha actually taught regarding this subject. Buddha was advised by a few of his students to start a religious group and he outright refused. He always said what he teaches can be used with any religion (and there were quiet a few at the time in India). He taught many prists from different sects and lots of them later became his students. He also forseen that after his death there will be a religious movement that would corrupt his teachings and he sent many of his students to the counties far from India to preserve the teachings.February 25, 2006 at 8:28 pm #10965
Assuming your history is correct, the story with Gautama is the same as with jesus – they didn’t want a religion formed around them, that arose likely out of the insecurity of humans and their tendency to project an absolute power that will explain their problems and save/prepare them for death.
It is unfortunate that insights into human nature get corrupted by others who need to borrow them to create power. But that is, from my perspective, just the battle in Heaven being played out here on Earth.
