Many organizations today are considered bad or evil. Groups like the Ku Klux Klan, The Anarchy Organization, Supreme White Power, which are Skinheads and Neo-Nazis, and Phreaks are a few of these groups. These groups all have one thing in common......they somehow break the law. The Ku Klux Klan terrorized public officials in efforts to drive them from office and blacks in general to prevent them from voting and holding office.

If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was without a
If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was, without any hesitation, I would declare it to be Henry David Thoreau. Although he knew in translation the religious writings of the Hindus, it may be unlikely that Henry David Thoreau ever studied the teachings of the Zen Masters. Even then, the insight within his own personal writings would irrefutably make him master of his own temple. The wisdom found within Thoreau's Walden can be clarified through Zen Buddhist beliefs and ideas

Happiness: Platonic, Aristotelian and Beyond HON 101 11-21-03 The ancient Greek word eudaimonia (eudaimonia), translated most often into English as ‘happiness,’ derives from its roots ‘eu’ – approximated as ‘good’ – and ‘daimon’ – meaning spirit (M-W). The etymology of this term for “good spirit” reveals the inadequacy of ‘happiness’ as its translation. The fleeting, immediate emotion usually called ‘happy’ in English differs from the more lasting personality, disposition and condition implied b

War The Great Funeral
War: The Great Funeral Philosophy 101 In war, victory should not be celebrated but mourned. When many people are killed they should be mourned with the deepest heart-felt sorrow that we can summon up. The death resulting from a war should be observed as a massive funeral for those who died regardless of whether they were on one side or the other. Human life has been taken and all human life is precious. Those we have killed we should mourn for along with those of ours that have been killed. The

A comparison with these texts sheds some light on how the canon emerged from the huge collection of teachings which were transmitted verbally. The Pali Canon is the best preserved by far but there are some advantages to the other Theravada scriptures. These other scriptures are generally called the ‘Agamas’, although p

Taoism
Taoism Throughout history, Taoism has been one of the most influential religions of Eastern culture. This is certainly one of the most unique of all religions. Many Taoists, in fact, do not even consider it a religion; and in many ways it is not. Taoists make no claim that the Tao exists.1 That is what essentially separates Taoism from the rest of the world religions: there is no heated debate or battle over Taoist doctrine; there have been no crusades to spread the religion. The very essence of

1. THE EMBODIMENT OF TAO Even the finest teaching is not the Tao itself. Even the finest name is insufficient to define it. Without words, the Tao can be experienced, and without a name, it can be known. To conduct one's life according to the Tao, is to conduct one's life without regrets; to realize that potential within oneself which is of benefit to all. Though words or names are not required to live one's life this way, to describe it, words and names are used, that we might better clarify t

Shintoism The Shinto religion was started in the Tokugawa period (1600-1868) of Japanese history. The Tokugawa “Enlightenment” inspired a group of people who studied kokugaku, which roughly translated means “nativism,” “Japanese Studies,” or “Native Studies.” Kokugaku's intent was to recover “Japanese character” to what it was before the early influences of foreigners, especially the Chinese. Some of these influences include Confucianism (Chinese), Taoism (Chinese), Buddhism (Indian and Chinese)

By saying that whatever can be described of the Tao is not the true Tao, its author, Lao-tzu, establishes his first premise: the Tao is a force beyond human explanation. However this assumption does not mean that he can't attempt to describe it. Using the literary tools of contradiction, parallel stru
