Well, I hope the message that I want to deliver is correct.

In study buddhism I notice that many of us try to look for reference. Well, that is good. But, that action itself can hinder us to really rely on our ability to see reality.

You can find that article in the book "Liberation in your palm" by Pabongka Rinpoche.

Or in recent talk by Dalai Lama in this link.

Are you saying that killing is ALWAYS wrong?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!

Hello DarwidHalim,

Much as I respect the Dalai Lama - and I have received teachings from him when he came to Australia - this is a Theravada list and the Teachings of the Buddha take precedence over all.

Well, although this is a Theravada list. I look at the Theravada objective which to make us become a buddha.

It is us human you make buddha dharma become Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana, or Zen, or etc.

Buddha's life history doesn't belong to Theravada. Doesn't belong to Mahayana. Doesn't belong to Vajrayana. Doesn't belong to anything.

When Vajrayana teacher tell buddha life, that story doesn't automatically belong to Vajrayana.

It also doesn't belong to Theravada.
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
