Hymn to the Truth

A Buddhist Prayer

BUDA (1)

based on a passage in Buddhist literature

This is the Gospel of the Blessed One.
The is the revelation of the Enlightened One.
This is the bequest of the Holy One.

Truth is the end and aim of existence:
the worlds come into being
so that the truth may take root in the worlds.

Blessed is he who rests in the truth,
for all things will pass away
but the truth will abide for ever.

Errors can be fashioned as one pleases:
errors are pleasant to look upon
but contain their own dissolution within them.

The truth cannot be fashioned
for the truth is immutable:
even before life, the truth existed.

Lies are the sores of Mara the Tempter,
the Serpent who bedevils the minds of men
and leads them astray on the path of evil.

Many say, “Error, be thou my guide!”
These are caught in the net
of lust and anger and suffering.

Truth endures beyond the death of the body.
Truth is everlasting and eternal.
When the worlds pass away, the truth remains.

Truth leads us on the path of righteousness.
It is a straight and easy path.
Happy are they who walk in it.

    1. To me the “Truth” can be exchange for several discriptions. The “Truth” the “Word” “Love” are all attempts to describe something that is undescribable. It’s like trying to describe the taste of an apple. Well…it’s juicy, sweet, crunchy, and so forth. But the only way for a person to really know how an apple taste is to experience it by taking a bite. The Truth is within every being that is alive. The planet is 6.5 billion years old and everything that has happened for that period of time has led up to this moment so that you and I can experience the ….TRUTH. Watch our breath going in and out. That Truth that created and sustains the entire Cosmos is taking your and my breath. Be quiet …watch it take the breath for you….feel …between the In and Out….is the TRUTH.

    2. Given the current conditions that influence and provide for so much of our present experience upon this Material plane, perhaps it’s best to take the apophatic route in its discovery; know that, in short, it is not that.

    3. JN 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

      JN 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

      1. @ AM

        To add to your post, John 14:6 – “Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

        The way is doing the truth, the teachings of Jesus, resulting in life after death, as Jesus demonstrated through his resurrection, with he and God, the Heavenly Father.

        In John 8:31-32, Jesus offers more explanation, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Free from what? The illusions/lies contrary to the teaching of Jesus which in a few later verses he identifies as sin.

        The teachings of Jesus, the truth, all hinges on the first two Commandments of loving God with your whole self and loving your fellowman. Praying to God and being thankful to God are ways to show that you love God, but Jesus teaches more about the most difficult and most important way of showing your love for God, how you treat your fellowman. Jesus said that anything you do or do not do to your fellowman is the same as doing it to not doing to him, Jesus, and consequently God. Jesus gave many examples, all mentioned in the Gospels, of how to love your fellowman from healing to visiting those in jail.

        It has been my experience that the illusions/lies of man must be identified and flushed from your reality before the teachings of Jesus are even considered as powerful enough to be a solution. The more lies that are flushed, the more room there is in your life for doing the truth, the teachings of Jesus, and the more truth is revealed. Life gets more simple and satisfying as more truth is known. Since there is always room for improvement, this process continues until your time here on Earth expires.

        Personally, I put distant between myself and the self righteous, sanctimonious ones that claim to be “saved” since they are ignorant of the fact that its God’s job to make that call, not theirs. They stop learning because they think they have arrived. That’s one of the primary reasons that I am not a “Paulist” because some of his writing come across that way to me.

        It appears to me that the truth is doing the teachings of Jesus. Uncovering a lie only counts if it results in more commitment to doing the teaching of Jesus, the only real solution to any problem.

    4. Unless a person is born again he cannot know the truth.
      It is a state of mind that is present in all those who are born again.
      In order to be born again, a person need to accept in faith that his mind is corrupted, that he is deluded.

      John 14
      6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
      17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

      The faithful witness

      1. “Unless a person is born again he cannot know the truth.”

        Yes…. so it is said.

        Reincarnation allows the reincarnated one to know his truth. Gets better at it each cycle.

        That’s the basis of Eastern political movements… recently called religions.

      2. @PAT

        ” Reincarnation allows the reincarnated one to know his truth. Gets better at it each cycle.
        That’s the basis of Eastern political movements… recently called religions.”

        Reincarnation belongs to religious movements and is false.
        It is derived from the ‘evolution of consciousness’ which is false: http://goo.gl/Z56eTz

        The state of being is an absolute, a born again individual is rational by default,
        and a person not born again is irrational by default.
        A person that is not born again cannot choose to be rational, he stumbles in the dark.
        The message according to the gospel.

        The faithful witness

    6. The Truth is, and I know this to be The Truth because I read Darkmoon all the time :

      ” Nukes exist and the jews are the ones who invented Nukes….Nukes do not exist and the jews are not behind the invention of nukes… that’s ’cause Nukes don’t exist…..Nukes exist and the jews invented Nukes…. jews didn’t invent the Nukes because Nukes don’t exist…. Nukes do exist…. Nukes don’t exist… jews involved with the Nuke Trinity Project exist…. jews involved with the Nuke Trinity Project don’t exist…. Nukes don’t exist… Nukes do exist…. jews don’t exist, Oops, forget that one, I got carried away…. jews exist but Nukes don’t exist… Nukes exist and jews exist…. but Nukes don’t exist…. jews exist…. but the jews would NEVER use Nukes on the World Trade Center in NYC on 911… that’s cause jews don’t exist, Oops, I mean ’cause Nukes don’t exist…. so no jews were involved in the Nuke Trinity Project ’cause Nukes don’t exist…. that’s cause jews would NEVER Nuke the World Trade Center in 911 during their jew False Flag attack on the USA under the guise of being “muslims” in order to get the USA to wage war against the whole Muslim world for the benefit of Eretz Israel and all of world Jewry… so ipso facto there’s The Truth, Nukes don’t exist…. so No jews were involved in inventing Nukes in the Nuke Trinity Project ’cause Nukes don’t exist so the jews would never use Nukes to bring down the NYC World Trade Center Towers…. not because the jews are so wonderful and so friendly and so full of peace LERV and understanding…. it’s just that Nukes don’t even exist…. so the jews didn’t Nuke the World Trade Center at GROUND ZERO on the day of jew false flag attack on the USA called 911 because FUCK, Nukes do NOT even exist….” [ something like that…]

  1. We thought this “Hymn to the Truth” might serve as a useful coda to the two previous articles about the various lies and misconceptions that have taken root in the world and flourish there like weeds in a wicked garden. This is the Buddhist equivalent of similar statements found in the Christian religious classics, e.g., “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) and “Magna est veritas et praevalebit” — Truth is mighty and will prevail. (Esdras 4:41)

    1. @ Everyone

      Apologies to everyone for the poor standard of monitorship on this website. Julian has been given the boot for his bad behavior as monitor. The comments he made yesterday have been deleted.

      1. Relax, Uncle. We’re used to a real poor standard of monitorship here at Darkmoon. No one was shocked by Julian’s low standard of monitorship, believe me. Just like we’re never shocked by your below-par poor monitorship. In fact, wasn’t it your poor monitorship in the first place that compelled Lasha to boot you out and install Julian? I think so, I do remember that. Do try to do better this time around, won’t you. Though if you don’t, none of us will be shocked in the least bit, believe me. welcome back, Uncle, 🙂 .

      2. Could we get a transcript of yesterday’s program by mailing in a self addressed stamped envelope to some post office box in Grand Central Station?

  2. A beautiful piece! Truth exists in every religion. As one Buddhist monk told me, one of the best books to read in order to point one towards realising truth is to try and aspire to live according to the ideals expressed in “The Imitation of Christ,” by Thomas Kempis. Another way for Christians is to follow the teachings of the great Spanish Saint, Teresa of Avila. She describes in Christian terms 4 types of prayer which correspond to Buddhist meditation: Recollection, Meditation, Contemplation and Union. It is her Prayer of Union which goes beyond concentration, meditation and contemplation. One becomes pure Being beyond words and thought.

    1. Those are two good recommendations. The Imitation of Christ and Divine Intimacy. Divine Intimacy is a collection of meditations for each day of the Liturgical Year. Well, let’s temporarily check that. It often has a meditation of weekdays within the Time of the Year. Such as Monday after the 17th Sunday After Pentecost. I did not mean to imply that every Saint in the Sanctoral Calendar is there.

      It’s the best introduction to, and in my mind, everyday guide to Carmelite Spirituality. But even St. Teresa herself would correct you in your observation that One becomes pure through meditative prayer. That only comes from the Eucharist.

      And the Eucharist is the Truth.

    1. So who is the shabbos goy boy toy you Darkmooners dragged into your office to type the word “Christian” with a capital “C”? Because I know for sure neither “Mount of Crisco Oil” nor Lasha the “Catholic” would ever type the word “Christian” with a capital “C”. Did you DM’ers pay a shabbos boy for his work or did shabbos boy type “Christian” with a capital “C” for free? Was it Alex Jones? No, never mind. Jones hates Christianity just as much as you DM’ers do.

      Has Monte/Lasha the two “Catholics” ever even once for all the time Darkmoon has been in existence presented a feature Darkmoon article/piece about Catholic Truth from a specifically Catholic source reference? Or, have all your “Catholic” articles/pieces about Truth come from Hindu and Buddhist sources? I have nothing against Hinduism and Buddhism, but constantly being told Darkmoon’s Hindu and Buddhist articles/pieces about truth are “Catholic” as in Catholic like The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith is Catholic is a bit much, wouldn’t you say? Or, no? [ lol ]

      Where’s “Catholic” Lasha anyhow? I hope she didn’t get stampeded over in the Hajj moozlum stampede recently. I hope the Hajjs didn’t mess up “Catholic” Lasha’s Sacred Blue Mohammedan Burqa from Kabul. And certainly, I do hope “Catholic” Lasha didn’t go bottoms-up when she jumped into the hindoo Ganges recently in one of her Hindu religious/spiritual ecstatic heights of Cosmic Oneness with the Moon Goddess of the Eternal Ever-Expanding Galaxies, visiting “our” sista Lucy on the far side of the moon where its always Dark, riding on moon beams throughout the Universe . “Catholic” Lasha gets around alright. From Mecca and Medina to Benares and back and forth. Gee, “Catholic” Lasha must be stardust and golden. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if she has half a million hydra heads. A half a million hydra heads “strong”. To paraphrase The Song of Songs of the buddhist-hindoo hippies hallucinating in the mud in Woodstock, down by Lazarus’ farm.

      1. More Truth about The One Eye :

        About Transhumanism, Computers, the Internet, Artificial Intelligence, Teilhard de Chardin, the usurped Catholic Church. From the great David Livingstone :

        ” Computers, Artificial Intelligence, and the All-Seeing Eye” ,

        http://www.conspiracyschool.com/blog/computers-artificial-intelligence-and-all-seeing-eye

        About Transhumanism :

        http://www.conspiracyschool.com/transhumanism

        Main Page of David Livingstone’s Truth website :

        http://www.conspiracyschool.com/

        Considering how much “Catholic” Lasha just LERVS The Truth so much, maybe someday she’ll tell us the truth as to why exactly does Lasha LERV looking out at us with her One Eye of Horus? How happy “Catholic” Lasha is the Catholic Church is so usurped now by jews and by Freemasons, it’s a lot easier that way for her to present Hinduism and Buddhism as somehow representing The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith. Of course, “Catholics” Lasha and Monte know it’s not true. They LERV to present Hinduism and Buddhism as being somehow Catholic Truth because Hinduism and Buddhism can be alchemically fused into the global NWO “religion” of “Transhumanism”, the old traditional Catholic Faith before the October 1958 Usurpation of the Catholic Church can not be qabalah alchemically fused with the global NWO “religion” of “Transhumanism”. I don’t know who Lasha and her “Monte” think they’re kidding.

        Oh yeah, the same Jews and the same Freemason who usurped the Catholic Church and push and promote “Transhumanism” for the NWO are also the very same exact ilk who conjured up “chrislam” also. And how “Catholic” Lasha just LERVS her Mohammedan burqa as she claims to be a “Catholic” : How symbolic that Darkmoon actually LERVS the NWO “religion” of “chrislam”. As DM feigns to be opposed to the NWO. And also, those who LERV the NWO “religion” of “chrislam” also LERV the NWO “religion” of “Transhumanism” and ipso facto LERV Hinduism and Buddhism EXACTLY because Hinduism and Buddhism can be alchemically fused into the global NWO “religion” of “Transhumanism”. Hinduism and Buddhism can be alchemically fused into the NWO “religion” of “chrislam” also. NWO “chrislam” and NWO “Transhumanism” having so much in common, having been conjured-up by the very same satanic jews and Freemasons.

        This is why “Catholic” Lasha will NEVER have any feature DM articles about true and real old time traditional Catholic Spirituality. Traditional Catholic Spirituality can NOT be qabalah alchemically fused into the global NWO “religion” “transhumanism-chrislam” and it’s One Eye of Horus : the One Eye of Horus of the global NWO that Lasha just LERVS so very much. She stares out at the world every second of every day with the NWO One Eye of Horus. But I’m expected to take this website Darkmoon as being opposed to the NWO and supposed to believe your DM is about “the truth”, and I’m supposed to believe you all somehow are sincere and devout Catholics? You can’t be serious?

  3. The Baphomet & The True Lies of The Beauty & The Beast

    I am that I am, the flame
    Hidden in the sacred arc.
    I am the unspoken name,
    I the unbegotten spark.

    I am He that ever goeth,
    Being in myself the Way:
    Known, that yet no mortal knoweth,
    Shewn that yet no mortal sheweth,
    I, the child of night and day.
    I am never- dying youth.
    I am Love, and I am Truth.

    I am the creating Word,
    I the author of the aeon:
    None but I have ever heard
    Echo in the empyrean
    Plectron of the primal paeon!
    I am the eternal one
    Winged and white, the flowering rod,
    I the fountain of the sun,
    Very God of very God!

    I am he that lifteth up
    Life, and flingeth it afar;
    I have filled the crystal cup;
    I have sealed the silver star.
    I the wingless God the flieth
    Through my firmamental fane,
    I am he that daily dieth,
    And is daily born again.

    “The Ship”
    Saint Edward Aleister Crowley

    Now run like hell for your very life, the boogeyman is coming

  4. To : Pope Mope the 43rd :

    I say “43rd” because this is like your 43rd installment as ruling pope of Darkmoon. You come and you go. Anyway, as you already know, I got posts in holding-pattern. Posts about the pyramids/sphinx, and the one about “The Altar of Jehovah”. You know which posts I’m referring to. I sent them in yesterday. The posts are not encyclopedic-length-long. The posts don’t take a long time to read — “to moderate and monitor”. Only takes a few minutes to “moderate and monitor” the posts. Get ’em out of holding pattern and land ’em on the commentary board. So far you’re doing better than Julian, especially as you don’t censor as much as Julian always censored my posts 100%. But still, there’s room for improvement as per the issue of censorship here at Darkmoon. I ask some on-target questions and I make some excellent points in my posts you got in holding pattern. So what’s the problem? If there’s a problem, let me know. Maybe I can rewrite the posts, re-word the posts differently. I’ve always been very cooperative that way, 🙂 .

  5. I love the song The Greatest Love of All, written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed and originally recorded by George Benson for the 1977 Muhammad Ali biopic “The Greatest.”

    I am a realist and know children are being bombarded with lies, half-truths and chemicals detriment to their well-being. If only the opposite was true.

    I believe the children are our are future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
    Everybody searching for a hero
    People need someone to look up to
    I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
    A lonely place to be
    so I learned to depend on me

    I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
    If I fail, if I succeed
    At least I’ll live as I believe
    No matter what they take from me
    They can’t take away my dignity
    Because the greatest love of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest love of all
    Inside of me
    The greatest love of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love yourself
    It is the greatest love of all

    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

    And if by chance, that special place
    That you’ve been dreaming of
    Leads you to a lonely place
    Find your strength in love

  6. “The worlds come into being so that the truth may take root in them (the worlds)”

    I’ll take exception to this in offering a different idea:

    This is not WHY worlds come into being. Worlds of superposed form (matter) exist as such because the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing BUT the Truth has been circumvented. This is not to say that the beauty of Creation which DEFINES Truth is not evident in this world. Certainly not for those whose sense of it hasn’t been completely obliterated by that which mars it.

    The World as presently constituted is like a jar of mayonaisse, where the ‘ingredients’ of pure beauty have blended into a condition of corruption. But the Divine Intent for manifesting Itself as exemplified by Christ is not for Truth to “take root” in worlds. Truth was UPROOTED from the only states of Existence it is intended for Life to be experienced. Where every individual is free to live the life they lead.*

    A return to that reality means extracting Beauty from the contents of the spoiled jar, for those who would return WITH it.

    This is the saving grace.

    *”lead”: 2. LIVE> as in, 4. “to conduct one’s life”

    Call it being your own leader….As Creator intends

    1. Or one might say, to twist Lao Tse’s arm a little bit..

      He who has himself as his own leader,
      has a fool for a servant.

      1. Brownhawk say in reply, voluntarily…

        Only if it’s the self that’s being led

        If not, then the fool is wise in his folly

  7. “You have to let go of Judaism in all its forms.”

    I am convinced Christianity is Judaism for the enemy. Islam the same. Both these religions are slave “submission to God” religions. Judaism is the natural “will to power” religion of a healthy people in a right relation to nature, like the Romans who nearly annihilated them. I am convinced Christianity and Islam, together, have been the misfortune of the gentile world. NO WAY would the chosen have gotten into the position they now find themselves without these malicious, subversive mind hacks.

    Give this a listen. It’s excellent.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3e6c4S7In0&list=PLlqMWgI2zcmz-r8OZk3yfV3wbJMzzWsKk&index=73

    It goes without saying that Buddhism does not serve the gentile as long as the enemy remains in his countries. Religions of peace and escapism may have their place but not when the enemy is closing in threatening to invoke its complete tyranny.

    Gentiles need to read Nietzsche and get rid of the religious poisons. The Romans played soccer with the heads of murdered chosen ones. This generated extreme rage and hatred in the few who survived as a consequence they concocted Christianity from suicidal Essene texts. The original Christian scriptures though written by Jews and distributed by Jews were written in Greek — with threats of Hell and damnation. Like so many other forms of subversive, seductive trickery, it was a matter of time before the superior Romans at the lower levels were infected, and it grew from there. 1000 years of what we refer to as dark ages, while they became more and more vengeful and produced their counter-work, the Talmud, a complete opposite of Christianity.

    Realize that just because they hate Christianity does not mean Christianity is good. They hate it to avoid falling into the trap of absorbing any of its suicidal teachings. If they didn’t hate it so they wouldn’t be so immune to it when living surrounded by Christians. So the hatred is an immune system response, a hedge around themselves. That’s not to say they don’t want to infect in the goyim more extreme versions of Christianity, which is Marxism. They do. But the Christian nonsense has served them most well.

    Feel free to comment. Like many I’ve been seduced by Christian sentiments because the reality is that many of the best writers have been Christian and because Christianity seduces my weaknesses. When I see children blown apart or babies born deformed from the DU contaminating lands (perhaps for billions of years?) then I feel extremely moral and compassionate and relate most well to the notion of God suffering on the cross, bearing the sins and tragedies and injustices of this world, considering love and care more important than anything else, more important than power; in short, I feel the urge to be opposite to those inflicting these grave injustices and abuses onto others. I imagine Christianity as the opposite doctrine of what the chosen is and represents and his ability, nay need, to spread misery and atrocities against life all over the world. As Charles Giuliani says, the joy and delight he seems to derive from destroying and conquering and his total indifference to human suffering, or any suffering not his own.

    But that is just it. Christianity is a doctrine that seduces. We fall into emotionally; it weakens and destroys our strength from the inside out. It takes critical thinking to see this — but I am convinced Christianity is detrimental, not beneficial. Nietzsche was convinced as such as well. Certainly the Greeks and better Romans would have considered it absurd.

    Face it.

    It is more subversion, more trickery; it is another collection of lies intended to rot away at the enemy: you, the goyim.

  8. An ode to freedom

    The self no choose
    is not to lose
    true point of bearing

    The fool him wise
    to shed a guise
    feigned mold is wearing

    swelled mind goes free
    no longer me
    a soul awakened

    to journey through
    a rapt milieu
    of point well taken

    1. Good to see, Brownhawk. People distract themselves with so much it’s a wonder they ever get anything significant done. For that matter white nationalism is a distraction. Some of the best, most well-aware people aren’t white and aren’t European, yet these WNs intently ally themselves against them, against most of the world, and thereby facilitate against themselves divide and conquer warfare, much in the same way the first response a Christian has is to consider Muslims a foreign enemy. Muslims fighting Christians. The enemy loves that!
