Gelek Rimpoche Tibetan Buddhism 31

www.jewelheart.org A person becomes a Buddhist, because they accept Buddhist principles as their principle, or rather, the principles they accept for their lives tallies with Buddhist principles. It is not that they accept Buddhist principles. They just tally. And I told you that the “ism” didn’t start with Buddha. Buddha-ism is a British invention by the British scholars when they were trying to deal with Buddhism and various religions. Then they started those “-isms”, because they needed that to function. Their idea, their mental level, functioned with categories. You create a category and a label and fit the person or whatever into that box, label them and then sit there, with your hands on your hips saying, “Ha, the situation is under control.”

Zen - The Best Of Alan Watts Muhaciro std

This is a nice video (a little over an hour long) featuring the best pieces of seven films Alan Watts made from the late 1960s until his death in 1973. Alan Watts (1915-1973) who held both a master’s degree in theology and a doctorate of divinity, is best known as an interpreter of Zen Buddhism in particular, and Indian and Chinese philosophy in general. He authored more than 20 excellent books on the philosophy and psychology of religion, and lectured extensively, leaving behind a vast audio archive. With characteristic lucidity and humor Watts unravels the most obscure ontological and epistemological knots with the greatest of ease. “Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.”
