F*ck Everything.

In Buddhism, we practice seeing how everything that we think is solid and real is lacking inherent existence, at least in the way we think it exists. The end result, however, isn’t nihilism…well, I’ll let Jon Lajoie take it from here (watch to the end).

    After watching the video I had an uncontrollable urge to watch Arj Barker's "Sickest Buddhist".

    simply epic awesomeness

  3. The Booda says:

    the lord buddha once said, "Fuck Buddhism. Fuck it." I think what he is really trying to convey is that through the vessel of defined spirit, we are opening ourselves to false profiteering. as the buddha writes in Buddha 3:16, "Emptiness is pregnancy. Pregnancy is emptiness."

    What are your thoughts?
