  • It's definitely worth a read through at least once in one's lifetime. Of course, I'm a little bit biased. :)
    Any time. This is one of the first things I read of Sikhism. Doesn't take long from reading the scripture to fall in love with it (it's pretty much all like this). :)
    Welcome. :D

    Here's the SGGS quote on it:

    What was that time, and what was that moment? What was that day, and what was that date?
    What was that season, and what was that month, when the Universe was created?
    The Pandits (the religious scholars) cannot find that time, even if it is written in the Puraanas.
    That time is not known to the Qazis (who study the Koran).
    The day and the date are not known to the Yogis, nor is the month or the season.
    The Creator who created this creation, only He Himself knows.

    Bearing in mind it's a poem in Gurmukhī (Sikh literary language and name of script), and God is genderless in Sikhism. :)
    Lol, that's hilarious. Me and my ex-wife were all excited about it, and we learned quick that it was way hyped up. It was pretty bad.
    Lol, I can't give you any more frubals at the moment, but my wife and I weren't impressed with Paranormal Activity 1 or 2, in fact, we liked the first one more than the second one, and we hated the first one. :D
    Yeah. It might take me a few days, to gather them up, and deal with the ice storm we're supposed to be getting, but I'll be glad to send you some of them.
    Hello matt,

    Thank you for the frubals, I'm sorry you are feeling depressed. It is always a shame as I have also gone through some tough times and when I did I tended to isolate myself and let my feelings of depression multiply indefinitely. I hope you find peace :)
    As far as denominations, I derive most of my ideas from Zen and Tibetan, although Zen normally wins out. I can't decide on which one I like more right now. They are both really interesting to me, although Zen is much easier to understand. There's alot involved with Tibetan, and I'm still trying to sort out all of it.
    Yeah, divorce sucks. One of the main problems is that me and my ex are still close, and we both still want to be with each other, but she has issues that she has to deal with. She doesn't know if it's ever going to happen, and I've been trying to help her and win her back, but so far, it's been to no avail. I think that hurts even more than just outright hating one's ex.

    As far as the Three Marks go, go to www.buddhanet.com, they have a huge amount of resources you can download. Download books on the basics of Buddhism, and they all have sections on the Three Marks.

    I officially converted to Buddhism about 5 or 6 months ago, but I've been obsessed with studying all religions my whole life, so I've known things about it since I was a teenager. I'm Autistic, and Autistic people generally have one thing they are obsessed with, and will pursue that with everything they have.
    Sorry to hear about your divorce and depression. My sister is currently undergoing a rather messy divorce.

    What do you read to study the Three Marks of Existence? I'd like to see some more sources on it, it's been a while since I did some research into them, and I'm eager to learn more. :)

    Out of curiosity, when did you come to Buddhism, and what denomination, if any, do you align yourself (most) with?
    Thanks. Due to the fact that I am still depressed and suffering over my divorce, I have put alot of time and effort into studying and understanding the Three Marks of Existence, as it's been one of the things that has helped me the most to get over my situation.
