What Is Buddhism, Mr. Knight? (Part II of Q&A Series)

To strive toward following the same path that Lord Buddha walked means taking responsibility for your own actions. In order to embark on such a path one must first come to understand what choices are good and what choices are bad---this is not just a matter of moral relativism, but rather is a matter having to do with the future of your eternal soul. That eternity does not imply either a punishment in a afterlife for so-called sins nor fancy payouts for blind obedience to divine mandates after you've moved on from your current life.

You cannot call a thing a true, right, holy, and moral action just because someone told you it was and that you must comply or else. Instead you must come to correct actions because they are properly sprung from the sole and willful force of your own mind. What does that mean, precisely? It means only this: that you own the action because it was the only action that was actually correct. It does not mean an action which is necessarily the most convenient, politically correct, the most lucrative, or even the most likeable. In fact doing the right thing may be something you'll from time to time find rather distasteful. That is too bad. However, once you get into the habit of always doing good then you'll see how rewarding and superior it is. When you do what is expected of you because you expect it of yourself then you have done your Duty and can feel secure in your own Integrity. Do your Duty then do nothing else.

Thus you will have the first step in the Buddhist Eightfold Factor: the Wisdom, which in Sanskrit is called prajñā. In plain English you can translate the word as Right View, for now you'll be able to view reality as it is and not just how you "wish it to be" or as it "appears to be."

Part II will be continued in the next piece.

Best Regards,
A. L. Knight

What Is Buddhism, Mr. Knight? (Part I of Q&A Series)

Buddhism is the primordial religion/wisdom tradition of our Creator. It is a Doctrine (called Dharma) that was handed down to us during the Satya Yuga (Age of Truth). It was in that very Age that the Gods physically reigned on Earth. Such was a Golden Age filled with human beings who were Bodies of Light and Souls of Gold (like the Golden Souls of Greek philosophy). That meant that every person was happy, was his brother's keeper, and did his Duty.

The Age of Truth is best symbolized by the Golden Calf who represents the Aryan (=Noble) Wheel of Dharma. That Wheel of Dharma is called the Solar Doctrines for it is our Sun, that majestic star that lights our way, from which all life and energy flows. It is that same Sun which will one day Redeem our glorious civilization so that we may once again join our Gods in a Age of Truth. You may know that beautiful Destiny as Christ's Kingdom Come . . . for that is what it is.

But Lord Buddha also gave such sermons on the Mount [as Jesus did], anticipating the future coming of the Christian Messiah. It was Buddha that Opened the Way so that we could one day be ready for the delicious fruits of Christian civilization which has bestowed so much beauty of art, culture, and learning upon those who would uphold the bold Cross of his Sacrifice [the Death & Becoming of the Christ].

Stick around, dear Seeker on the path . . . for I have much more to tell you about such things.

Are you ready for the mysteries to be revealed to you?

Then take my hand and let me be your guide.

Part II of this will answer some of those gnawing questions that are racing through your mind currently! In Part II we will take a more direct look at just what exactly a Buddhist is, what he/she does, and what he/she believes.

Very Truly Yours,
Guru Alexander L. Knight

He is also a proponent of Zenarchy (Buddhist Zen anarchy) which entails freedom for everyone!

You may have become aware of him through some form of satire/parody. Such publicity stunts are how the great Zen masters rouse humans out of their sleep and onto the path of Enlightenment!
