    I have achieved enlightenment, I have discovered the basic understanding
    despite the world and it’s rule’s and yet i love these human belief’s and
    perception’s and consciousness that unite us in this magical world, I love
    them not because i am some one great but because I Understand

    If you are a TRUTH SEEKER then go to Google, search for ‘The Truth Contest’
    & read The Present @ the website. What it says will blow your mind.

    I saw some Monks down the road get real angry with local residents because
    they set up a meditation centre in a residential zone with all these cars
    going in and out without a permit and with no real consideration for the
    local residents. Those monks sure didn’t look ENLIGHTENED to me. Just
    another bunch of MEN preaching how they are ABOVE every body else…..ie
    putting themselves in the position of GODS.

    @GonG108 It is likely that an enlightened being doesn’t busy his/herself
    with proving their existence to youtube users. They likely don’t seek
    affirmation from others, being fulfilled and all. If an enlightened being
    is what you seek, why not pursue enlightenment yourself?

    @biggmoneyme And you think that language such as, “are they invizible come
    on man THIS ARE ALL LIES” reflects intelligence?

    To the haters, those myths were created by ignorant people like you and me.
    The difference is, haters like you try to slander Buddha and followers like
    me try to use myths and legends to raise Buddha’s status. But Buddha did
    not care for them. Buddha did not even say “Worship me”. He only wanted the
    people to practice meditation (mindfulness) and attain enlightenment.
    Buddha said if we find our own salvation and attain the path to
    enlightenment, we can even abandon his scriptures and books.
