Dare to Do

Post by Nicholas »

Ran across this YouTube series of almost 90 short videos. Some are New Agey, or self-help, or pop psychology or generic spiritual, yet they seem sincere in wanting to motivate in a good direction. There are quite a few stories based in Buddhism too.

Dhamma is against the stream of common thought, deep, subtle, difficult, delicate, unseen by passion’s slaves cloaked in the murk of ignorance. Vipassī Buddha

Wonder about sources for Buddhist stories though. The "Buddha and God" one about Buddha teaching a Rama worshipper and an Atheist may be a conflation or fake or based in some non-sutra source?

Yeah, it has some good messages, but the Buddha quotes are questionable. Those are becoming more and more common on the internet. One guy even has a whole website listing some of the many fake buddha quotes out there.

To be fair though, some fake quotes are not that bad, have some good inspirational meanings and might be paraphrases of some teachings of the Buddha. I don't think it's a good idea to be too much of a hard-core literalist in the teachings.
