    It is important to remember that a monk once asked Ummon, "What is Buddha?" To which he replied, "Kanshiketsu!"
    Buddha is a very wise man but falls short for the promotion of obesity.

    You can have it two ways
    1) I am Buddha
    2) He is my buddy

    My way

    3) whatever i decide upon closer examination.

    Ps : I do not have a huge problem with overweight people

    Isn't that somewhat of an oxymoron? I was under the impression Yunmen/Ummon/whateverchinesetolatinnamespellingsconfuseme meant that Buddha is even the least significant form of life, or identity, which would also include low-reciprocal identities such as shit sticks, but I believe he even extends it to non-reciprocal identities such as specs of dust.

    Ofcourse, even a spec of dust can make a man sneeze, but if that is your arguementation, I would like to know what identity is truely non-reciprocal to you. Because I would argue that it would not exist in that case.

    Yeah, you're not making any sense. I'm going to venture that you think you are Budai, who looks like a fatmat and is a Buddhist, but not Buddha.

    I haven't actually really got a clue who either of them is. I love the going to
    venture I think I am Budai or that I even think I am Buddha. As far as I know
    Buddha is a fat man who sits on a hill. You go up the hill he tells you
    something really wise and you leave happy.

    we could all do with a bit of Jesus power, he almost has the same effect
    a few second chat, complete conversion to his way, no writings
    (as far as I am aware of) ? and off you go happy to the afterlife.

    If only life was so easy.

    I apologise if he's not fat and the slander upon his good name.I don't mind if
    he's fat i was just saying philosophy is philosophy. I am not claiming to be
    Buddha I think hes probably just a good friend of mine.

    maybe.

    sorry by non-reciprocal identity do you mean never to give back in relation to all things?

    This would certainly fall under the guise of evil & a high contender for within
    this character a taker is all forms of masks and subdefudges ?? hopefully you
    know what i mean. There is a balance and under the balance is a great sway,
    but giving nothing and taking everything is a cause to disaster.

A simple example of this is a firing squad; several men shoot at a prisoner, but none have to take sole moral responsibility for the execution. One or two can even miss on purpose. The larger the group, the less need there is for individual moral decisions, and the easier it is to deflect blame for actions that are unambiguously harmful.

    I would argue that this type of behavior is not sufficient but at least necessary for large scale harm (like wars and apathy to large scale suffering) to occur.
    Dont you think that harm and benefice are just other words for evil and good? It seems like semantics to me, the semantics of those afraid of making judgements or being associated with traditional judgement.
