Btw Jupiter,

I always thought Buddha was little more dark/brown skiner
and more skinnier than mainstream depiction of Him.
Hahaha no, I'm just joking.

Re: ANATTA chatter

"....Once we discover that this practice of looking into ourselves
is actually the main practice of Dharma
we can see that the notion of path
and
destination
is simply an analogy
there is not an actual place
some literal destination called liberation
that we come to.
The true picture is simpler:
we are becoming more familiar with ourselves....."


“Traveling the path” means
that we gain increasingly profound experience of our true nature.
As we see this abiding nature more clearly
we are truly traversing the path
— this is how we actually arrive at the destination called liberation.
Understanding this
we know that liberation is not someplace outside of us
and the path to it is simply a process of seeing more deeply.
from: FREEDOM through MEDITATION
by HH THE KARMAPA OGYEN TRINLEY DORJE

What is more important is that God does not judge his anointed by his appearance or stature, but by his heart (1 Samuel 16).

The fat Buddha figures to my knowledge actually depict a legendary Buddhist monk named Budai, not Gautama Buddha. The idols of Gautama you can find worshipped in Buddhist temples are considered by most historians to be a Hellenistic innovation following the conquests of Alexander the Great. However, some of the Buddhist writings contain plentiful majestic descriptions of his appearance not seen in any human that are not capable of being represented by said idols.

Buddhism does not claim that all is one, but rather that it is empty. Hence non-self.

Personally I believe in metaphysical pluralism, making distinction between things, rather than making less distinction between things. Different properties can't reflect one substance, unless by quantity, which would mean many substances.
