    Nihilism. I am one with the universe, pain is an illusion resulting from attachment, true happiness is sought from the denial of the will. Apparently.

    Which is why I am not a Buddhist.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    We went over this already, and although everyone claims that Buddhism is incompatible with racialism, their answers on an internet test showed that they agreed with many Buddhist philosophies.

    Post Abyss

    They came to an abyss. The atheist promptly closed his eyes and chanted, "There is no abyss, there is no abyss." The agnostic considered that the abyss might be an illusion. The superstitious plopped down and prayed, "God is great. God is good." The existentialist said, "Egads!, uh, I make my own purpose." Siddhartha Gautama led his follows straight over the edge into anihilation. Nietzsche stared into the abyss and dared propose a bridge.

    Originally, the anihilation of self - considered by some to be a deception - was Siddhartha's goal. It has since been colored with historiography and hopeful alternatives. To the nature-oriented heathen (certainly not including the invented "Wicca") or to the Nietzschean, anilhilation by death is sufficient and soon-enough.

    Certainly not a Buddhist here, but from what I've read there is something haunting about the stark simplicity of the original Buddhism. The latter being a revolt against the dizzyingly cluttered nature of Hindusim. The simple purity of Buddhism was turned on its head by the mythologising needed by the masses, as OnionPeeler says. The people made an idol of the Buddha, exactly as he had told them not to do. (Who can blame them, I feel comfortable in assuming him to have been of original, undiluted Aryan stock.)

    I highly recommend the novella 'Siddhartha,' by Herman Hesse.

    Post Re: Buddhism

    I think any National Revolutionary interested in Buddhism should consider J. Evola's 'The doctrine of awakening' (Italian title: 'La dottrina del risveglio').

    There he argues that original Buddhism, as it emerges from the Pali texts, was essentially an Aryan and virile attempt to fight against certain decadent trends within Hinduism. The book makes an interesting read. I would love to learn more about original Buddhism, but time, as always, is a problem... *sigh*

    That's an excellent book. I read it when I was 15, Evola's an excellent writer. It's well researched and I recommend anyone who has a deep interest in Buddhism to get a hold of it.

    Post Re: Buddhism

    Nihilism is AGAINST Buddhism. Buddhism is about the Middle Way, non-duality of all things. Shunyata or emptiness is not about nihilism, it is about the inherent existence as being false (reality not found in our own concepts and ideas), or an illusion. Non-ego does not mean our conciousness does not exist, it just means our ego is a mind-created illusion. Our ability to be aware is called the "Buddha Nature".

    There are 2 "levels" of Nirvana, one is the Nirvana of the Arhat (Saint), while Buddha's Nirvana is much more complete, and yes, Nirvana is the ultimate goal of Buddhists.

    ------------------------------------------------
    http://www.vipassana.com/resources/dharmapala/an8.php

    THE Lord Buddha taught the Middle Doctrine to avoid the extremes of asceticism and sensuous indulgence. The Noble Eightfold Path shows the way to comprehend the Middle Doctrine. Buddhism is the English term to express the religion of the Lord Buddha. The Pali term for Buddhism is DHAMMA. The specific names to denote the DHAMMA are Sambodhiyana, Dhammayana, Jhanayoga, Ditthijala, Attajala, Brahmajala, Brahmayana, Vibhajjavada Samukkansadhamma, Vimutti nanadassana, Ariyamagga, Ariyadhamma, and Bodhi pakkhiya dhamma. It is not Nihilism (ucchedavada) ; it is not fatalism (pubbekatahetu vada) it is not Creatorism (issaranimmana vada). Then what is Buddhism ? It is a kiriyavada, kammavada, hetuvada, a paticcasarnuppanna dhamma, and an anupubbadhamma. Kriyavada connotes cause and effect, as for instance from milk is produced curd. The variations of absolute predestination, creatorism and nihilism are rejected by the Lord Buddha. He found the Universe is not the product of Chance, or is caused by the will of a foolish ignorant despotic phantom Creator, or due to absolute predestination, but the result of unerring natural Immutable Law of Cause and Effect. It is the Doctrine of gradual evolutionary development as we find in the biological evolution of the human germ cell. The supreme Teacher of gods and men taught that man is not the slave of muddle-headed metaphysicians who created from their imagination certain types of god. Theologians found in the god-idea a weapon to enslave the people. In the Tevijjasutta our Lord showed the foolishness of those who wished to assimilate themselves with their own imaginary gods. Repenting gods are still under illusion.

    3 Great quotes from Albert Einstein:

    "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

    "Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity", Albert Einstein

    "Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world.", Albert Einstein
