The Buddha’s Fire Sermon (note similarities, contrasts with alchemy]

Standard

Buddha has always fascinated me how he looked, felt and observed the powers on the Earth, which for us, they might be considered mostly as normal elements. as I remember; when I watched the movie Little Buddha (1993) I was very impressed by the scene:  Tree of Life – “Little Buddha” movie scenes.

I wish You dear Friends a Happy & Peaceful New Year with full of Love and Freedom for all of us ❤ ❤

here is somthing like a pray; Amasing!

All things, O priests, are on fire. And what … are these things which are on fire? The eye, O priests, is on fire; forms are on fire; eye-consciousness is on fire; impressions received by the eye are on fire; and whatever sensation, pleasant, unpleasant or indifferent, originates in dependence on impressions received by eye, that also is on fire… With the fire of passion, say I, with the fire of hatred, with the fire of infatuation; with birth, old age, death, sorrow, lamentation, misery, grief and despair are they on fire. The ear is on fire; sounds are on fire; … the nose is on fire; odours are on fire; … the tongue is on fire; tastes are on fire; … the body is on fire; things tangible are on fire; … the mind is on fire; … ideas are on fire; … mind-consciousness is on fire; impressions received by the mind are on fire; and whatever sensation, pleasant, unpleasant or indifferent, originates in dependence on impressions received by the mind, that also is on fire. And with what are these on fire? With the fire of passion, … with the fire of hatred, with the fire of infatuation; with birth, old age, death, sorrow, lamentation, misery, grief and despair are they on fire. 
[his prescription of how to escape being on fire]: 
The learned and noble disciple conceives an aversion for the eye, conceives an aversion for forms, conceives an aversion for eye-consciousness, conceives an aversion for the impressions received by the eye; and whatever sensation, pleasant, unpleasant, or indifferent, originates in dependence on impressions received by the eye, for that also he conceives an aversion. Conceives an aversion for the ear, an aversion for sounds, … conceives an aversion for the nose, conceives an aversion for odours; . . . conceives an aversion for the tongue, conceives an aversion for tastes, . . . conceives an aversion for the body, conceives an aversion for things tangible …. etc

  1. Heraclitus the Greek philosopher that had a massive impact on the occult says everything is fire. See also Yves Klein fire paintings. Interesting. Also T S Eliot The Wasteland name checks The Fire Sermon in the notes.
