What we find instead is that Buddha himself thought it was impossible for women to be “Perfectly rightfully enlightened one” and that while the most coveted Buddhahood was readily available to the testicularly graced, it was unattainable by females.

This is according to a statement in the Bahudhātuka-sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya in the Pali Canon…

Since then he has worked tireless at creating better options for durable and more humane ways of life and people-scale, earth-centered, technological savvy eco-villages, he thinks, is the way to go.

    In a sutta titled “Bondage”, the Buddha states that when either a man or a woman clings to gender identity, that person is in bondage.[11] A man who states this, can he be lost in gender prejudice? And what is up with the statue representation above? What exactly are you trying to convey with this drama? The Buddha was about meditation and sharp awareness of the mind, not drama. His monks, male or female would have been fully clothed. Please see this link for deeper understanding: “Now, I want to tell you this. A woman can never get enlightened, nor can a man get enlightened. Only if you are beyond these two damn things you can get enlightened.” ~Sadhguru Now imagine five thousand years from now, someone quotes only the first clause and there you have it. The same stupidity. http://www.stillischill.com/2011/08/there-is-too-much-talk-about-god-godmen.html

    Mike, just wants be to “different” and unique. He digs out some spiritual passages or comments about which he has no clue or any comprehensible understanding, processes it through his own limited mind, modifies it on the paper and presents it as some newly found by him real truth of amazingly unknown to anyone true facts about the religion and mysticism. In that way he believes he sees himself to stand above it all.
    Mike, it doesn’t make you look original or smart, it only makes you look foolish.
