Namu Amida Butsu!
« on: August 20, 2011, 02:03:29 AM »
I seem think that the down-to-earthiness of Jodo Shin reflects a little more of  Dudeism & the gentle fatalism of Fuck It, Let's Go Bowling more than Zen's formal monkiness.

Have a gander at this interview to see what I'm blathering about:

i totally agree. i've been hit with the zen stick one too many times, and had no sunglasses in which to put on and say 'fuck it'.

I'm a big fan of pure land buddhism.  It's more geared to the simple folk who really don't feel like sitting around and arguing about sutras.

It pretty much boils down to saying your namu amida buddhas until you've regained your dudeishness.

I think the best translation for namu amida buddha is:

Fuck this shit buddha, you handle it.

Mike

Sanity is giving up the illusion of control.
Happiness is letting go of the past.
Serenity is just being myself.

The Dude abides.

Definitely love the concepts and the mediation aspect of Zen more than the formalities. I have gone to the local Vietnamese Zen Center a few times and they are pretty laid back, but this is definitely worth checking out more.

I like how Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) monkied around with Zen. He was a nutter for sure but he was also a real free-spirit experimenter. The idea of dynamic meditation, where one brings movement and therefore the body more into consciousness really resonates for me. I have been doing a lot of Osho influenced tantra recently and my genitals are already a lot more conscious.

Do you make a habit out of fucking strangers in the ass, or are you just trying it out to see if you like it?
