7. The "Light" (7.3.5-7.3.6)

Buddah7.3.5    Prophet Gautama of Buddhism

In Buddhism, the “Noble Eightfold Path” is called the “Arya Astangika Marga” and the “Four Noble Truths” are called the “Arya-Satya”. These are the two most fundamental parts of Buddhism and are clearly related to the ancient Aryan kings mentioned earlier.

The Noble Eightfold Path:

  • Right View (Wisdom)
  • Right Intention (Wisdom)
  • Right Speech (Ethical Conduct)
  • Right Action (Ethical Conduct)
  • Right Livelihood (Ethical Conduct)
  • Right Effort (Mental Development)
  • Right Mindfulness (Mental Development)
  • Right Concentration (Mental Development)

The Four Noble Truths:

  • Life means suffering.
  • The origin of suffering is attachment.
  • The cessation of suffering is attainable.
  • The path to the cessation of suffering.

So what is Buddhism? Well, building on the concepts of Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, like Islam, is more focused on living than on the worshipping. The key component in Buddhism is Enlightenment. But, Enlightenment from a Buddhist point of view isn’t the same understanding that I have been talking about in the Dossier. Buddhist Enlightenment is more about limiting the mind and the life to a sort of null status, to be able to listen to soul’s inner voice. Some say Buddhism isn’t a religion as its more about inner peace and stability, but I disagree. Buddhism clearly is put together to act as an organized religion. The basics of Buddhism was put together mid to late 6th century BC by the Aryan King Suddhodana’s son Siddhartha Gautama. More known as the Buddha (“Awakened One” or “Enlightened One”, from the root: √budh, "to awaken"), he experienced the Great Enlightenment while meditating under a Bodhi tree for seven weeks in Bihar, India. His experiences then were passed by oral tradition and about four hundred years later the ‘holy works’ of Buddhism, Tripitaka, was written down. The title ‘Buddha’ is used in Buddhism for anyone who has discovered enlightenment (Bodhi) and Siddhartha Gautama is not considered to be the first or the last Buddha. As son of a king, Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, did not claim any divine status for himself, nor did he assert that he was inspired by any god. He claimed to be a teacher to guide those who chose to listen. This of course made great impression of people and Buddhism grew quickly.

Kabbalah7.3.6    Kabbalah of modern Judaism

 The so called "soul" of the Torah (Jewish Bible), the Kabbalah, is a religious mystical system that claims insight into divine nature. As a creation of the medieval 13th century, this so called “understanding” has emerged as a revelation to elect saints from a remote past and is preserved only by a privileged few according to the Jewish tradition. It’s even more complicated as the followers of Kabbalah seem divided into two fractions. One who refers to it as a type of inner spiritual voice who helps them to decipher the world and a second who claim it’s an almost “scientific” explanation of how the world works. I think the Kabbalah is quite interesting, but also scary. It picks up were other religions get lost between irrational and rational meaning. A sort of modern bible created for those who have come to a level of enlightenment were they doubt irrational faith and search for rational meaning to the existential questions of mankind. The reason why I find it scary is because it may be used as a camouflage for those who feel it’s easier to tell they are kabbalahists instead of spiritual atheists, because the latter often offend people in our present world and isn’t as fancy. I also think it’s easy that this type of advanced guidance will put oneself onto a throne based more on knowledge than understanding. Meaning: It’s as easy to draw complex map of nothing as it is to read it. Complexity then talks to the intellect and instead of being turned over to understanding, it manufacture truths. I my opinion it could be defined as a self justified belief system were the complexity itself fuzzy rational logic.
