This is probably off topic, but have I been spelling Budda wrong all these years? I've always spelt it with an 'h'.

No, I think the person who started the thread misspelled it...

There in lies the problem with man made religion, the need for power overcomes . They often become cult like. And people aren't encouraged to exlpore.
 
I enjoy bits and pieces of many faiths ,buddhism is one of them.

See I was brought up catholic and I could never figure out if we were following the bible how come the rules could change.
Like one year I would spit out meat if I realized it was a friday and the next I could eat it if I wished.Those rules are manmade and change often to keep people in the club.It's been along time since I've read the bible but I really don't think it's supposed to change like that.

But why not?  :)  Aren't we by our very nature a changing creature?  Don't forget, the books of the Bible were written by men.  Divinely inspired but still written by men.  And just how are we mere mortals to understand exactly what the Divine meant?  It was also men that decided what books went into the Bible and what books were repressed.

I too was raised Catholic.  I have no major issues with the faith I was raised in, even though I am no longer Catholic, nor even Christian.  What we need to understand is that no matter our faith, it is man made.  Divinely inspired, but interperated by men.  And we are subject to error.  We are subject to mistakes.  

I'm not defending, I'm not condeming.  Just like all other humans, I'm trying to understand.

i'm not condeming the catholic faith either.
I'm just saying you have to be carefull of the information you receive.Personally I like to explore spirituallity on my own.
Buddhism is a vehicle to enlightenment. The point of Buddhism is to penetrate the minds conditioning so you can live from the radiance that is at the core of your being.

Very well said, bardo...and I couldn't agree with you more. I think that also like what vamp said, it's all about understanding, and that because we are human, we were born to err...again, not a bad thing, as I believe that mistakes made once only serve to allow you to learn and grow from those mistakes. And in this increasingly changing and morphing world, it's always a good idea to explore other paths before you settle on one...or if ever, lol. I personally feel that if you DON'T try to learn all you can, you're only cheating yourself from gaining 'true' enlightment.

Buddhist magick and spells?  That's a new one on me.  I always thought it was based on meditation, study and prayer in order to remove your own negativity and enhance your posititivity and find purity and lasting happiness.  At least, that's what I've read over the years whenever I took a look at Buddhism.  

Ah well, I don't practice it myself, so if you don't practice it, you don't fully know everything about it I guess.

Oh, and just a personal thing?  Could you take the all caps off on your keyboard?  Tends to come across as screaming when you type in all caps like that.
