Re: Gerasene's Cave.

There are so many threads on this forum - I don't see much of a problem if GD has one to himself. If he needs to vent a little sometimes that's absolutely fine by me.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

I actually don't think he's pretending; I just think he hasn't been in the School for very long. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

1. I beg to differ. You have provided opinions based on what you call facts and not evidence. The evidence sought has been requested several times. If you mean with regard to the mantram issue then I have said all I'm going to say on that subject. As far as I'm concerned it is merely one example of ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

I can put names on this board and bring down a few key tutors whom have done serious wrongs but I will not. They know what they are. We have many many things to say but we will not. We respect peoples privacy unless hear where you have brought down over 40 years of hard work by Mrs Mavro. Again, th...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

There are a few salient points here that I would like to address. 1. I fail to understand how can these tutors be at the school for so long and maintain the facade of acting in the best interests of the students. Week in and week out these tutors would act like genuine tutors but inside they do not ...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dr. Alan, I appreciate your efforts to inform us of your take on Advaita. I think the only real issue that some of us found was that you seemed unwilling to enter into a meaningful discussion about what you posted. The fact that some of us raised queries regarding your assertions does not imply that...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dear Dr. Alan, You seem to have done that - and then argued with yourself. I have no opinion on these matters. Of course you have an opinion on these matters - your opinion is what you wrote in your previous posts. I have no problem at all with the fact that our opinions differ, but I had hoped for ...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

So there are a few things here: 1. The proposition that happiness is not derived from 'external' objects. 2. The proposition that happiness is derived from 'unity with one's true self'. 3. The proposition that the achievement of lasting happiness is the aim or purpose of Vedanta. Firstly, notice tha...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dr. Alan, OR maybe you believe in the Higgs Bosun particle - which is so incredibly small and exists for the smallest period of time that anyone can imagine. Yet it is supposed to control our whole existence ??? Read the description of that as given by the scientists. Then come to your own conclusio...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Just a few things to add in regard to Nick's and MW's posts: 1. Tutors/Duty This was an important point. The issue can perhaps be simplified to two queries: i) "if these tutors (that left) really cared about the spiritual welfare of their students, how could they leave?"; and ii) "If ...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

Good point Earlgrey - let's see if he comes up with anything, but I agree it's a possibility. The language he uses is, as AT points out, very much in line with "School talk" so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. Well said AT as always. There is no reason to suggest t...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

It's up to each individual to be true to themselves. I agree - but the problem is that our conception of what it means to be true to ourselves was manipulated and distorted. "Being true to ourselves" became "follow the leader no matter what". I know people who still genuinely th...

Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

Thank you for opening a new thread StillatSES, Ahamty2 - these comments of yours are typical of so many on this forum. I would not have expected anything less of you. It might well be said that your own comments on the other thread were "typical" of someone still in the School. Obviously, ...
