ok sepehr and zakaj win



i can see its just going to go on forever, it is an intrinsic problem with public boards, you can't expect people to show any consideration or restraint and they don't , just milk your valuable time for their own amusement

i will answer most private contacts, but when i don't reply to you sepehr its because we are "divorced" and if i never heard from you again, it would be great !

now i can start to recover my life abit ! :o)

the board is now on moderation, i think everyone can take that is not accepting any comments !

tl;dr got sick of my time being freebee'd for the entertainment of inconsiderate tards !

what is the purpose of this blog ?



1. it is to provide links to my pages where i think there is a particular reference to zen or of interest

2. its intended to have a low volume and not very taxing comments section that acts of a sort of "help desk" for those interested in taking advantage of my experience in zen and "quality mysticism" and naturally if you would do that you would think i must basically know what i am on about !

3. if you basically disagree with me, which for example the posters zakaj and sepehr do, then our views are always going to clash and we end up with the PTSD type situation of reddit zen which is basically an endless dispute about who is right . -

4. if you don't think i know what i am on about just do not post !

you have your own agendas and interests and why you cannot see that you should follow these interests and pursue them rather than be constantly in conflict with me i do not know !

your views are different , go the ways your views direct and don't be hypocrites sucking up my energy because i am the only authenticity you can find !

a really good fitting quantum theory explanation of my vision with the sixth patriarch "an unopened message travelling in an open timelike curve"

blog is re-opened to comments



since sepehr has called what appears to be my bluff in relation to actually enforcing "no comments" not much point in only having him posting !

maybe brad warner has it right about handling blog comments, i need a higher threshold of what to i g n o r e

though those posters on the hardcore zen blog make me ill . .

closing the blog to comments



please don't post on the 7th patriarch blog until further notice, i am just finding the maintenance too wearing . . !

that is everyone seems to spring to their own agendas, you just can't leave the comments section alone like brad warner does, i find that approach too destructive to oneself personally . .

i am finding a little rule for life, is just observe, don't get involved

i may not ever re-open it for comments, just post the latest “ pending poems ” link as each page folds over ! . .

i am open to receiving email or contact via my zaddar1reddit nick !

photos from zakaj's 2015 japanese trip

collating into one post

me & wife at Fushimi Inari : photo_800

wife : photo_814

interesting library at Mii-dera : photo_856

each "cell" in the octagon has rolls of commentaries and sutras inside, and the whole library actually rotates!

Mii-dera : photo_864

path at Mii-dera : photo_869

I thought these two pics were especially good, considering how much I suck at taking photos !

my favorite by far was the Kaidan-in on Mount Hiei (headquarters of Tendai sect, where Dogen, Nichiren, Shinran, Ippen & co all trained) :

photo_908

I'm fascinated by its colours, and the light

photo_909

either I was lucky or the light and the temple themselves emanate beauty ... that's my wife and my mother-in-law

I suck at taking pictures but I think that was is quite successful, either I was lucky or the light and the temple are just so beautiful that you can't make a bad photo !

---------

the paths are beautiful, photo_912 ... this is the place where Eisai the founder of J. Rinzai Zen used to meditate, the very spot : photo_915

love the paths and the gardens, photo_869 wish I could be here as something other than a tourist...

------------------

the first two pics are of Kaidan-in which is perhaps one of the most important Buddhist structures in all Japan. It was in this building that Mahayana Buddhists declared their independence from the Hinayana Buddhists of Nara. The structure itself was built to commemorate the death of Saicho (767-822), the founder of the Tendai sect... this is where Dogen, Nichiren, Shinran, Eisai, Ippen, all of the big names of Japanese Buddhism , practiced and were ordained

-------------------

(Sorry for this "travel log" I won't abuse 7th patriarchs blog to blog my travels it was just one exception!)

my reply

' Sorry for this "travel log" '

that's your best content so far and you apologise ! ?

both you and sepehr delete your best posts as well !

i presume you used a digital camera and i think one reasons the photos came out so well is the light was bright, but diffused which is what it takes to make digital cameras shine, they especially don't like the light being too dull !
