The White Buddhist: Henry Steel Olcott and the Sinhalese Buddhist Revival
Henry Steel Olcott
By Stephen Prothero
EACH YEAR on February 17, Buddhists throughout Sri Lanka light brass lamps and offer burning incense to commemorate the anniversary of the death of an American-born Buddhist hero. In Theravadan temples, saffron-robed monks bow down before his photograph, and boys and girls in schoolhouses across the country offer gifts in his memory. “May the merit we have gained by these good deeds,” they meditate, “pass on to Colonel Olcott, and may he gain happiness and peace.” Disinterested historians describe Henry Steel Olcott as the president-founder of the Theosophical Society, one of America’s first Buddhists, and an important contributor to both the Indian Renaissance in India and the Sinhalese Buddhist Revival in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Less objective observers have allotted Olcott an even more central place in sacred history. A prime minister of Ceylon praised Olcott as “one of the heroes in the struggle for our independence and a pioneer of the present religious, national, and cultural revival.” In the land of his birth, Olcott has been less graciously received. The

Chinese Vegetarianism: Buddhist Roots
Following The Path If you want to lead them to the Buddha's wisdom,
first you ought to give them something good to eat!
- the commentary of Tripitaka Master Hua on The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra Although, in the minds of many, vegetarianism is commonly associated with Buddhism, the link is far from absolute. Of the two major lines of Buddhist practice, Northern School (often called Mahayana and chiefly in India, Tibet, China, Korea, and Japan) and the Southern School (often called Hinayana and practiced in Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka), only Northern School scriptures expressly forbid the eating of flesh. Also, vegetarianism is not a standard practice in Tantric Buddhism, which includes Vajrayana Buddhism practised by Tibetans (e.g., H.H. the Dalai Lama does not practice vegetarianism). The new emphasis on Buddhist vegetarianism arose in 3rd century India under the Gupta kings, who were worshippers of the Hindu deity Vishnu. Ascetics following Vishnu were required to abstain from animal food of any kind. Thus, Buddhist scriptures of that time presented a sort of 'moral parity' argument: if those on a lesser path forbid meat, shouldn't we? When the Chinese Fa-hsien visited India early in the 5th century, he found that in the whole of the Middle Country

Siddartha Gautama

... (Sangha)
The oldest known date in the history of India is the death of the one called Buddha in 483 BC, and even that date is somewhat controversial. Buddha means "one who is intuitive, awakened, or enlightened." The famous historical person known as Buddha was also called the Tathagata, which means "the one who has come thus," and Shakyamuni, which means "the sage of the Shakya tribe." He is said to have lived eighty years, and thus was probably born in 563 BC.
Siddartha Gautama
His father Suddhodana of the Gautama clan was elected king of the Shakya tribe by its five hundred families just south of the Himalaya mountains in the realm of influence of the powerful Kosala monarchy. The son was born in the Lumbini garden and named Siddartha, which means "he who has accomplished his aim." Many myths and legends surround the birth of Siddartha, but most of these seem to have been developed centuries later in the Jatakas . A famous seer named Asita predicted that the child would either become a great king or, if he left home, a great teacher. His mother Maya died seven days after giving birth, and her younger sister Mahapajapati, who was also married to Suddhodana, became his foster mother.

132. Mahayana Buddhism
Theravada buddhism focused primarily on meditation and concentration, the eighth of the Eightfold Noble Path; as a result, it centered on a monastic life and
Mahayana , since it could accomodate more people and more believers from all walks of life. They distinguished themselves from mainstream Theravada Buddhism by contemptuously referring to Theravada as Hinayana , or "The Lesser Vehicle."
bodhisattva was one of the most important innovations of Mahayana Buddhism. The boddhisattva , or "being of wisdom," was originally invented to explain the nature of Buddha's earlier lives. Before Buddha entered his final life as Siddhartha Gautama, he had spent many lives working towards Buddhahood. In these previous lives he was a bodhisattva , a kind of "Buddha-in-waiting," that performed acts of incredible generosity, joy, and compassion towards his fellow human beings. An entire group of literature grew up around these previous lives of Buddha, called the Jataka or "Birth Stories."
Maitreya , or "Future Buddha," began to assert itself. In this, Buddhists believed that a second Buddha would come and purify the world; they also believed that the first Buddha prophesied this future Buddha. If a future Buddha was coming, that meant that the second Buddha is already on earth passing through life after life. So someone on earth was the Maitreya . It could be the person serving you food. It could be a child playing in the street. It could be you. What if there was more than one Maitreya? Five? Ten? A billion? That certainly raises the odds that you or someone you know is a future Buddha.

Talk Given in the Greening Ceremony at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution of the University of the Queensland

In my understanding, Buddhism is a multi-cultural social education. Today, we would say that Shakyamuni Buddha was the founder of multi-cultural social education, a true social volunteer. His goal was to help sentient beings understand the true reality of life and the universe, to treat everyone equally, to co-exist harmoniously, and to live in mutual cooperation with all others.
A Critical Moment that Can Change Heaven and Earth!

For All Lovers of Peace "Let Us Pray Together for World Peace"

We believe that the majority of people in this world do not want this war. Then why couldn't we stop it from happening? We couldn't stop it because the people of this world all share in this common karma. If we want to survive this tragedy, all peace loving and kind people throughout the world should join together.
Speech for the Opening Ceremony of the Multi-Faith Centre at Griffith University Given by Venerable Master Chin Kung 23 May 2002

Today our world is filled with natural disasters and man-made disasters. Our situation is critical. Therefore, it has become crucial to unite all religions and ethnicities.
