The Buddha's Prediction

Ananda sat at the Buddha,s side and argued on behalf of the ordination of women. The Buddha continued to refuse the request. Finally, Ananda asked if there was any reason women could not realize enlightenment and enter Nirvana as well as men.

The Buddha admitted there was no reason a woman could not be enlightened. "Women, Ananda, having gone forth are able to realize the fruit of stream-attainment or the fruit of once-returning or the fruit of non-returning or arahantship," he said.

Ananda had made his point, and the Buddha relented. Pajapati and her 500 followers would be the first Buddhist nuns. But he predicted that allowing women into the Sangha would cause his teachings to survive only half as long -- 500 years instead of 1,000.

Kinda looks like this will probably happen eventually.

I take it that it would require overturning official dogma though? Something they have been loathe to do in the past.

It's about time we spruced up Avignon again.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Deal! The Pope's palace there is one of my favorite examples of medieval (defensive) architecture.

But the inside is frankly mind-boggling:

Some little chapel.

Image
The Pope's quarters.

Image
His modest office.

Was the late pope speaking "ex cathedra" or whatever it is that makes what he says officially infallible?

So ridiculous.

And wasn't he just reiterating what was already the official dogma?

Amazon Synod Pachamama Idols Thrown into Tiber River in Rome [Updated with Reactions]


Image

Breaking news from Rome, everyone: Some courageous soul has decided there’s been enough dialogue and bridge building and it’s now time for some action: The disgusting Pachamama idols that had popped up in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina and that Francis had blessed in the Vatican Gardens on Oct. 4 in connection with the ongoing Amazon Synod, have been removed by an as-yet unidentified individual and cast into the Tiber river.
