Getting to the bottom of buddshism isn’t easy, but the Bazaz book is provocative and useful. We are liable to be fooled however both ways: the tradition versus the radical buddhism. Sorting out themess won’t be easy.
The world needs a new global post-buddhism version of what buddhism originally tried to do. Again, not easy to bring about…What we don’t need is a popery of Tibetan buddhist fascism. Forget it, all of it (except as historical documentation)…

We have tried to sort out the later fate of buddhism after its war with the neo-brahmins and consistently took sides with buddhism. But lately we can see that buddhism foundered in a horror and suggested the ‘mulch heap’ of hinduism has the elements of future action, but not as current. We can see that the Upanishads represent the real legacy but that the Vedic backdrop has totally confused the history…

A path is a reification that will be exploited subtly by external agents: as the neo-advaitas sense we need a path that dispenses with a path…We have suggested stealth ne0-advaita as a cover for a sly study of core Advaita, rapidly remorphed into an independent post-Shankaran new legacy (Shankara was a hindu chauvinist, be careful)…

The Upanishads are the core: and the Axial Age in India shows it at the fountainhead. And then there is the Jain legacy…

We have tried to bring in the more general version of the paths of the ‘will’ via Bennett/Samkhya, but this material is confused by its association with rogue sufism. But the factor of will which is so targetted by dark operators like Osho is a defense against predation…
