    Question Thoughts on Buddhism?

    What is everybody's thoughts on Buddhism? I've been interested in it for a long time and I want to hear what you guys have to say.

    I have read that the origins of Buddhism come from Aryans of Indo-Iranian origin, and the descendants of modern day indo-Europeans.

    I have also read that the original name for Buddhism was "the Aryan path"...

    I own two translations of the Dhammapada but I don't really put any sort of faith or trust in the words of Gautama. I personally feel that all that he taught was passivity and mystical escapism, which is strongly at odds with my own stubborn, often fierce, tendencies as a human being (I consider passivity and escapism weaknesses and not virtues).

    There's much more to be gained from, say, Stoicism, which teaches sober acceptance of things; heathenry, which is the native folklore; certain less passive forms of Christianity (I was raised as a Protestant and still find it hard to escape its influence- one of my all-time favorite books is the good ol King James). And so on.

    All of these could be considered "Aryan paths" (I don't use that term, Aryan, myself- it's silly) in that they've been adapted to the hearts, minds and souls of white Germanics for centuries. I've always regarded the fixation that many of us have with mystical Asiatic silliness as a bit, well, silly.

    Buddha basically taught the same sort of nonsense that Jesus, who many decry, but with different verbiage; a do-gooder who speaks either Sanskrit or Aramaic is still a do-gooder and I'm not very fond of do-gooders.

    Even in buddhism the women are less worth than men, and the women have less karma.

    Beorthsige,

    You also have to remember that Buddhism is divided into different groups, not all of which share the same essentials: Theravada, Mahayana, Chan/Zen.

    Of all of the types of Buddhism, Chan is the most interesting to me.

    Thanks for the input. I am in no way a Buddhist, but find some of its concepts very interesting, for example karma and truth. I also believe that your morality and actions do indeed determine your fate... but you don't have to be a Buddhist to believe this.

    I am more interested, however, in the origins of Buddhism and I am a firm believer in the theory that Aryan or indo-European, Indo-Iranian (whatever you want to call it.) culture has left its mark in the form of Buddhism in places like Tibet. We fail to see that Buddhism may actually be a concept (I wouldn't call it a religion) of European origins, before our people even inhabited Europe. Even Friedrich Nietzsche stated his interest in Buddhist thought, though I find this odd since Nietzsche didn't believe in truth at all.

    I too find the Buddist faith interesting. I read a book by the Dalai lama called the universe in a single atom. It was very well compossed, and it did stimulate my though process a bit. I do like the concept of spiritualism as a personal thing, it kind of goes with my Anarchist outlook on things.

    As a nihilist, I mock and oppose the ideas and concepts of Buddhism.

    Read Julius Evola's interpretations on the subject. His ideas are by far the best, most thorough, and most interesting. Trust me.
    "The mystery and secret of Wotan is not that "knowledge" of him is passed along through clandestine cults or even through the re-discovery of old books and texts--but rather that such knowledge is actually encoded in a mysterious way in the DNA, in the very genetic material, of those who are descended from him." - Secret of the Gothick God of Darkness

    Absolutely! The Doctrine of Awakening is something I would recommend to anyone interested in religious studies in general. Way better than any Western "interpretation" of Buddhism I have ever read.

    And in regards to Primus, there's also Tantric Buddhism, which is the esoteric aspect of Buddhism, and contrary to popular perception, is NOT all about sex magic(k), but it IS involved. I'd recommend Evola's other book, The Yoga of Power on this. Incredibly fascinating read.

    Some body mentioned a "Evola and Junger" combination. I certainly agree. But I would add Jung to that mix as well.
    I love Jung... have you ever read "Wotan"? one of the best essays I have ever read. I believe that he was a personal friend of Herman Hesse, who was also a friend of Evola! Fascinating how that stuff works...they were linked, in a way.

    I honestly have not read much of Junger, but I have heard his name thrown about. What books by him would you recommend?
