Buddhist Interpreters and Fractals


Do Buddhist Interpreters believe in Fractals?

Buddhism is a deep study of mind.
The scope of Buddhism is limited to functionality of thought streams and freedom (nibbana) from them.

Buddhist scriptures written using Buddhist terms in Pali/Sanskrit media do not suggest anything other than the aforesaid to an open reader, who do not surrender to Buddhist spell-binding gossips spread by so called 'Buddhist social institutions' , their member priests and sympathizing followers.

If you are born into a Buddhist society and/or too much loyal to Buddhist monks to agree 'sadu sadu' with whatever they say and without analytical/critical thinking using open minds, sorry to say, you are certainly blind.

Interpretations of Buddhist main sources, popular among commoners are simply fantasy stories.

They range from :
promote material to monks expecting afterlife birth in heavens to
prostrate in front of fellow people in robes with assumption that they are Sangha to
animal talking (see Jataka stories) to
permanent Athma, Soul, Sansara concepts using Buddha's previous lives, etc

Fractals are typically self-similar patterns, where self-similar means they are "the same from near as from far"

Do interpreters have fractal knowledge to apply Buddhism to maintain social order, promote culture, justify minor subjects (eg: Astrology), way-of-life for the spell-binders, etc?

Why misinterpretations are so popular to distort the true intentions of Buddhist Dhamma?

Is it why current Buddhists neither believe nor achieve the main goal of Buddhism in his or her life-time?



  1. how do you know what other people actually believe?

    1. Good question as an answer.
      Well, hard beliefs develop in to cultures, which is presentable and apparent. Generally, actions speak for the beliefs.
      In this case, why the interpretations divert from the main goal and relevant intentions of Buddhism?

  2. Sadu means good.

    sadu sadu means good good - rather three times and this is a culture as well from the Buddha's time. that means laity say it too in their cultural sense. when someone only says sadu twice, in Burma, it means he/she has not trusted or feels satisfied yet.

    Fractal is modern word.

    The Buddha taught a human is just like the earth - everything is similarly assembled - i.e.
    solidity - pathavi dhatu - earth - hardness and softness - support
    liquidity - apo dhatu - water -
    heat - tejo dhatu - fire
    motion - vayo dhatu - wind/air - support
    space - akasa datu - Space is very important. Without it nothing can move. Space exists between particles - throughout universe.

    Four Mahabuta dhatu (idk how to interpret dhatu) and space ().

    1. Rūpakkhandha (start reading from this)

    From this point of view, yes, fractal is possibly agreeable in Buddhist view. Every physical thing is built with these five - big or small.

    People are different so do different things differently for different intentions.
    There have been people who achieved nibbana. You too can achieve it. Nibbana is - the state of being free from greed, anger, pride, self view, wrong view.
    Read about fetters:

    1. Thank you for being confident about me and I wish you achieve Nibbana in this lifetime. How and when would that be? How sure and clear are you regarding the strategy and goal? lol
