Buddhism and Mahayana Buddhism 2/2

Continuing from the previous blog, this time, I will summarise the essence of Shaka-sama's teachings, "luck" and "sky."

They did not inform us Japanese about the actual Buddhism of Buddha.

It explains in Japanese Buddhism that "The invasion of the Islamic army destroyed Indian Buddhism."

I also vaguely thought this. Perhaps what I read in some books became an image and remained in my brain.

"Buddhism is destroyed in India, abolished Buddhism in China, and Japan is the only proper Buddhist country."

I now understand that this is a mistake, but I suspect some people still think this way.

However, the perception that "Japan is the only proper Buddhist country" is quite different from the fact.

Although Buddhism was destroyed in India by the Islamic invasion, all the great monks who lived in North and East India at that time fled to Nepal and Tibet and survived.

And they introduced Buddhism there.

It is called Theravada Buddhism. (Originally, it should call Theravada Buddhism.)

"Buddhism" that was introduced to Japan is called Mahayana Buddhism.

I was ignorant, and I arbitrarily decided that "Mahayana (larger) is correct."

It was a great misunderstanding. It was not Buddhism that was introduced to Japan, but Taoist Buddhism.

It's better to call it Taoism or Confucianism than Buddhism.

Tao is the concept of "the only truth in the world that is nothing but that", Kant's concept of "a priori".

It refers to the concept of being correct forever in the future.

However, Shaka denies the way (Tao).

The idea is, "There is no single truth in this world. There is nothing in this world that is nothing but that."

So, I can't hear the way (Tao), and I die for that.

Mahayana Buddhism, on top of that, makes a big mistake.

Even though Shaka-sama said, "There is no god," he has adopted the concept of God, "Nyorai."

Not only were new gods such as Yakushi Nyorai and Dainichi Nyorai created, but the Buddha himself also became a god named "Shaka-sama Nyorai".

Shaka-sama denied using such magic.

By denying Atman (soul, ego), Shaka also explains that there is no reincarnation.

Nevertheless, some Buddhist temples are still told to have reincarnation.

I used to think that reincarnation was Buddhist teaching, as a matter of course.

I had a lot of false memories of Buddhism, even though I had never learned about Buddhism.

Perhaps in my life, my unconscious accumulates "teachings" that contradict the teachings of Buddha heard from the surroundings, and when I raise them to consciousness, I pull out such memories. So I think it might be.

Taoism has the teaching of "nothing", not "sky".

It was transmitted to Japan along with "Tao".

It caused the misunderstanding that the concepts of "nothing" and "sky" are very esoteric.

Even in the West, there was a time when the "concept of emptiness transmitted Buddhism". And They were seen in Buddhism with a terrifying, suspicious feeling.

It is unreasonable to balance the Taoist teaching that "there is a priori" with the Buddha's that "there is no a priori".

In the Japanese translation of the original scripture written in Sanskrit, there is a description of "sky" and "Artman is also sky".

It is content that thoroughly denies a priori things such as "Tao".

Then, in Showa, Japan, when I learned that the concept of "sky" was the original teaching of Buddhist priests, Buddhist studies became very popular.

If Brahmanism does psychic powers, Buddhism will have to do it. For missionary purposes, both sides fought a psychic battle.

That was the final appearance of Indian esoteric Buddhism at Vikramshila Temple, where they used various tremendous psychic tricks.

That is what has been passed down to the present day via Tibet.

Tibetan Buddhism combines Buddhist teachings and esoteric Buddhism different from Buddhism.

Then, Buddhist scholars worldwide paid attention to the part of Buddhist teaching, and Aum Shinrikyo paid attention to the part that was not Buddhist.

Buddhism in Japan has been dramatically separated from the original teachings of Shaka-sama.

I knew only Taoism and "Buddhism" in Japan based on Taoist thought.

Since the Showa era, the current Japanese Buddhism has been re-studied Buddhism by Buddhist by scholars and religious scholars who have learned "sky".

Before becoming enlightened, Shaka-sama thoroughly penalises herself to the point of starvation and falls.

There he survives with porridge from a girl named Sujata and, as a result, realised under the Bodhi tree.

With that experience, he thoroughly talks about how wasteful penance is.

Buddha's training is meditation.

You can also experience the sky with a meditation experience. It is also transmitted to Tibetan Buddhism.

In Japan, there is a strong sense of hermit training. It is like receiving a severe waterfall or staying in a mountain, and there is a decisive mistake between "penance" and "training."

More than 600 years after the death of the Buddhist priest, Pure Land Buddhism began to enter Buddhism.

Mahayana Buddhism began when the concept of "God" was incorporated from Brahmanism to establish the Mahayana scriptures in India.

The red thread is a Taoist concept and is a ritual to connect the two. By doing so, I was given the meaning that I could go to Amida Pure Land because I had a connection with Amida.

Based on this logic of the Pure Land Buddhism of China, Shinran changed Mahayana Buddhism to a Christian-level logic.

Shinran developed the idea that started from Amida's application.

Amida Nyorai says in this application, "I am waiting in the Pure Land until I realise all the living things."

Application: A vow made by the Buddha and the Bodhisattva during the training period of the past life. A fundamental desire to save people.

So Shinran said, "Amitabha's going that far means that you have already been saved.

You say "Namu Amida Buddha" because it has a connection, so Amida-san says it. "

He teaches that Nembutsu only needs to be chanted and not spoken.

Shinran's idea is the same as the free love of the Christian God.

It is anxiety that prevents humans from living happily.

Desires manipulated by others can cost you unnecessary money and damage your health. All misfortunes are caused by the loss of control of worldly desires.

How to control worldly desires is becoming more and more important for modern people. Shaka also talks about how to do that.

Understanding enlightenment is more accessible if it is not challenging to enlighten. All you have to do is know that this world is a phantom.

Some people think it is scary that this world does not exist when they hear "phantom", but they do not say that it does not exist.

The sky is the state of mind at the end of the ultimate increase in abstraction.

In other words, there is no actual physical world that looks the same to everyone.

Auspiciousness is the creation of "marriage" by making choices on various occasions in life, and "marriage" is related to the "ki" of the future. In short,

It means that the world is made up of relationships.

In physical space, it is just a state of elementary particles.

In quantum mechanics, it has come to be understood that "there is no real physical world that looks the same to everyone."

Since 2500 years ago, Shaka has realised that "there is no real physical world that looks the same to anyone" and that "the world is made up of relationships."
