Connie, not all religions...most of them...beneath the surface.

I like this site too, it has helped me with net communication as well...something that wasn't my cup of tea...especially putting my pic on the net was a big deal for me. I feel safe on this site.

Suki, I agree that different religions have their own background. But do you agree that all religions have the same ulitimate goal of wisdom which in some religions there are different expressions, i.e. the ulitmate freedom.The common saying of Chan is the very mind is Buddha, then not-mind, not Buddha.
I like this site and the friends here, which are so friendly and encouraging and open-minded.

Thank you Connie, for your detailed explanation on Chanism. This site is the only social network that interests me, besides learning & encouraging...it is very nice getting to know my brothers & sisters cultures & perpectives on many topics.

Hi, Suki, so nice to sharing the opinions with you at this site. As to your wonder about Chanism, which in ancient China the Chan followers claimed themselves to be under 宗下(Zong-xia),because they thought their school transmits the Buddha’s Mind, pointing directly to the mind so that one sees one’s nature and becomes a Buddha and they called other schools such as Tian-tai, Hua-yan, Consciousness-only schools etc. 教下(Jiao-xia), because they thought the schools emphasize on the concepts and knowledge of Buddhism, I had a discuss on how to translate Chan School and other schools with an American who is well up in Chinese and Buddhism, he suggested translating 禅宗 into Chan school or sect is not exactly correct.
From A Short History of Chinese Philosophy by Fung Yu-lan, Professor Fung translated 禅宗 into three terms according to different contexts: Chanism, Chan School, and Chan. That’s all for it.

Connie, what does Chanism means? tried to google, but don't think the few results were what your talking about.

Hi Connie, sorry that it took long...to get back.I hope that your doing well. Thank you, for sharing your insight, sharing is caring. :)

I don't believe that all the religions have the same main context, just most of them...but in it's original writings, not the translated one's or man made ones. The most important thing is transformation/actual proof, if there was no actual proof in our practice...I wouldn't waste my time.

Hi, Suki, really keeping an open mind is significant for our practise and to some extent I agree your conclusion that the terminology has been only difference for different religions. From my experience I found the Pure Land sect and Tibetan Buddhism ,both of which are emphasizing worship are more similiar to western religions.But as to Chanism, it should be prevailing everywhere...

Spiritual wellness...to live in The Middle way, spiritual & the world of form. Hmmm it is a journey, we start from within to clear up our lives in every area...& begin to reveal our Buddhahood life condition/our highest potencial. I've briefly looked into a few other religions & did an intensive study of christianity in the 5yrs that I left my buddhist practice as an experiment. My conclusion has been that the main context has been the same but the only difference has been the terminology...oh & all the changes that has happend through translation, interpretation, perception, power, greed, ignorance...etc...over so many years. On a surface level there's some expedient means in most religions for the sake of the capacity of the people. In my opinion we have to keep an open mind, & that's what I love about President Ikeda...he has a very open mind...without limitations. I'm so proud to be practicing Nichiren Buddhism because it works.

Teresa thank you, for being so helpful...YES!!!, you made my day...I will contact you 4pm give or take, so we can set a time.

Everything is energy vibrating at a different rate, we make causes that raises or lowers our energy life force. NMRK definately raises my energy life force to be able to be happy, & appreciative...still there is so much work in progress... at least I can face anything with a good face during my human revolution.

We went through similar abuse and I truely hope that I can be of help to You as well.
