Crazy Wisdom - Rules of the Sentient Game 2 - Comment [B]

Here is my take. After further reading the "Lotus Born", i read the part one page 105-108 as attached picture (esp the part when Vimalamitra asked "Do you King and Ministers know the meaning of Homage" which was replied by the King " I don't know". 

So i will simply explain to the King what is the meaning of Paying Homage as the King expected homage from Padmasambhava earlier and Vimalamitra later upon the consecration of the Temple.
From Wikipedia 

"A prostration (Pali: panipāta, Skt.: namas-kara, Ch.: li-pai, Jp.: raihai) is a gesture used in Buddhist practice to show reverence to the Triple Gem(comprising the Buddha, his teachings, and the spiritual community) and other objects of veneration."
The King at that stage was just an ordinary person, he wasn't the object of veneration according to the Buddhist Teaching. So he will definitely be in trouble when Enlightened Ones were forced to pay homage at him.
:D thats all


The question: 

I have stated that Buddha Dharma are ways or methods and as per Avatamsaka or Flower Adornment Sutra, these ways are Infinite or Immeasurable! :)

Can you think of ways to help or advise King Trisong Detsen, so that his clothes won't catch Fire?

The Answers can be found in Avatamsaka Sutra or Zen Patriarch Bodhidharma's teachings as well as many other dharani!



Quoting the passages from Lotus Born, does not naturally means you understand the True mechanics behind.
Thus you also failed to answer the question to the point!

Rephrasing your comments also won't help, unless you know what Vimalamitra is talking about when he does his prostration to Vairochana's statue!

This question appears easy but quoting Vimalamitra actually complicated matters for all of you!!!

Cheers all
