O house-builder, you are seen!
You will not build this house again.
For your rafters are broken and your ridgepole shattered.
My mind has reached the Unconditioned;
I have attained the destruction of craving.

Whatever you do, don't believe in adi-mara. Evil is temporary. This existence came from good and will return to good, and all this Samsara stuff is just temporary my dear friend. There was once a time where there wasn't a Samsara, and eventually there will be a time like that again, forever.greenjuice wrote: ↑Wed Sep 23, 2020 8:24 am Various schools of Buddhism believe(d) in Eternal Buddha, appealing to the statement of Gautama Buddha that he is the embodiment of Dhamma and embodiment of Brahma. That would be basically God. Personally, I believe in Adi-Buddha and Adi-Mara, as the only explanation of existence and it's nature that I find reasonable.
