    ... and donate it here:

    http://ajahnbrahmforsale.com/

    this guy can do more for him in one week than his "psychiatrist" has done for him over the past couple decades.

    ajahn brahm is the best. if anyone has big bucks, seriously donate to the nun's monastery, regardless if they win the contest or not.

    Howard's only thought for AGT salary is how to take it with him when he dies.

    Howard's idea of charity is doing a photo shoot that gives himself (and Beth because he drags her along as a "designer") a lot of free publicity and doesn't require that they donate a cent of their own money.

    and makes money off of it because he deducts it from his taxes. I would LOVE to see at what he values his time. we have already seen he completely overvalues his pictures.

    In a way, that is donating.

    The Pelican is donating a pool, a new Mercedes, and a year's worth of tuition to the attorneys through the fees.

    All that fancy equipment?

    Write-offs.

    It's how the mega-wealthy knock down their effective tax-rates lower than school teachers.

    that's why the jews insist on being buried as quick as possible, because there's a better chance no one will notice the riches they are taking with them. jewish graveyards are literal goldmines.

    i'm bumping this because the auction started today (since austrailia is one day ahead of time).

    i don't have a pot to piss in right now, and i was still able to scrounge together enough for the "registration" amount.

    anyway, i know it's really stupid and corny, but i sent the stern show a quick email the other day asking for the word to get out there about what ajahn brahm is doing. i'm posting my email here in the hopes that some rich celebrity who may like howard sees this, or some tech-savvy person can get this out out there so lots of people know what's going on. it's a long shot and probably won't have any effect, but it doesn't hurt to try.

    anyway, if you are taking this seriously, thanks. it's actually a super important event which is historical on so many levels.

    Howard have said on air that he only gives "charity" to jews/family.

    He won't even bother to sign some show item and action off. Imagine how much his wig would bring in in an action.

    BTW He will take all his money with him when he dies. Trust fund. Managed by Buchwald.

    :lol:

    well, the message/email wasn't really just for howard. it's for whomever has a generous heart and wants to create a happier world. and it doesn't hurt if they're million/billionaires, either. :D in fact, it's probably better if they are. i *think* it will cost about 5-7 million for the entire project. hey-- it's tax deductible! :cash:

    but yeah... research and read up on ajahn brahm and the dhammasara nun's monastery. i encourage people to do this. i just don't want people to blindly give money. research and find out if it's something you believe in as well.

    Why is there no female Dalai Lama?

    By Michaela Haas, Published: March 18

    Every time Buddhism migrated from its place of origin in India to other countries, whether Sri Lanka, Burma, Japan, China or Tibet, the philosophy, customs and rituals transformed as well. Not surprisingly, Buddhism’s relocation to the West comes with a sea change of emphasis and culture. In Tibet, revered masters might isolate themselves in remote caves, sometimes for decades, in deep meditation. In the West, teachers reach thousands instantly by streaming their wisdom on podcasts. Throughout Asia, women rarely had equal access to education. In the West, women demand to be acknowledged in the many leadership roles they assume. In many Asian Buddhist communities, open dissent is unthinkable, while in academia, critical discourse is crucial.

    Of all these changes that we are watching Buddhism undergo in the West, the most momentous may be that women are insisting on playing an equal role. More and more Buddhist women are now rising as teachers in their own right who understand their responsibility: to invigorate and bolster women to hold up “half the sky” as spiritual seekers and teachers. As feminist Buddhist scholar Rita Gross points out in her book “Buddhism After Patriarchy,” “The single biggest difference between the practice of Buddhism in Asia and the practice of Buddhism in the West is the full and complete participation of women in Western Buddhism.” The 14th Dalai Lama has acknowledged this by pointing out that his next incarnation could be a woman. “I call myself a feminist,” he said. “Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?” Despite the complex historical, religious and political factors surrounding the selection of incarnate masters in the exiled Tibetan tradition, the Dalai Lama is open to change. Why not? What’s the big deal?



    “The lamas can’t ignore this any longer,” says Western nun Karma Lekshe Tsomo, the founder of the most important international organization for Buddhist women, Sakyadhita (“Daughters of the Buddha”). “In most Buddhist centers, look into the kitchen—all women. Look into the offices, who does the administration? Mostly women. Who does the driving and organizing, the cleaning and the correspondence, the shopping and managing? Mostly women.” That women then also become teachers, abbesses and even Dalai Lamas is only a natural evolution.



    The current transformation of Buddhism in the 21st century is stunning on so many levels, and women play a role in this endeavor as prime agents. The Buddha was the first religious founder after the Jains who allowed women into the ranks of his order – a revolutionary decision at the time, more than 2,500 years ago. The historical Buddha clearly encouraged lay women and nuns along with men to be the pillars of his community. But while iconic archetypes of feminine enlightenment were erected on shrines, few women were actually emboldened to follow in their footsteps. Despite an encouraging quote of Padmasambhava, the 8th century pioneer of Tibetan Buddhism, that women’s potential to attain liberation is supreme, most Buddhist cultures throughout the centuries perceived women as lesser beings. The few encouraging statements are outnumbered by plenty of passages in the writings attributed to Padmasambhava and other masters that lament the hardships of womanhood. Commonly used Tibetan words for woman, lümen or kyemen, literally mean “inferior being” or “lesser birth.” Some orthodox masters doubt to this day if women can attain realization at all, and age-old liturgies have women pray for a better rebirth in a male body.



    “There were certainly many great female practitioners in Tibet,” British nun and abbess Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo writes in her book “Reflections on a Mountain Lake.” “But because they lacked a background of philosophical training, they could not aspire to write books, gather disciples, go on Dharma tours, and give talks. When we read the histories, we will notice that nuns are distinguished by their absence. But this doesn’t mean they weren’t there.” To this day nunneries in Asia usually lack the resources the monasteries get, and full ordination for women is currently not a possibility in the Tibetan tradition, though many monks and nuns, including the Dalai Lama, are working towards a change.



    The Dalai Lama has spoken out many times about the need for resolving the issue. “Two thousand five hundred years ago, the Buddha was preaching in a male-dominated society,” he stated in an interview. “If he stressed feminist viewpoints, nobody would have listened to him. The important thing is that now, for the past thirty years, we have worked to change that.”



    This is a challenge all religions in the 21st century face in one form or another. Watching the change in the Vatican, many hope that the new pope will be a little more inclusive, especially when it comes to women’s issues and questions concerning sexuality and contraception. More than 70 percent of American Catholics want the next pope to ordain women, approve the use of contraception, and let priests get married. But we know Catholics won’t get a female pope or female priests any time soon. Women are the only group categorically excluded, and Pope Francis has not made encouraging statements in the past. But any organization that excludes 50 percent of their brightest and most capable members from leadership won’t be able to escape change forever. The papacy won’t be a mamacy any time soon, but at least we know that Her Holiness is an option.
