I often refer to myself as a Satanic Buddhist, and it often leaves people who understand both of these philosophies befuddled or accusing me of hypocrisy. I practice the mind-cultivating meditations of Buddhism and have incorporated them as a part of my life, in addition to practicing Satanism. People have told me that the two are mutually exclusive, and I have always disagreed.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the subject?

Do you believe in the "Four Noble Truths"?

How do you reconcile the Buddhist goal to renounce desire with the Satanic dogma of vital existence?

I see nothing hypocritical about practicing meditation in whatever form you desire. But I can understand the confusion some may have considering Satanism is a religion of the flesh and carnal, rather than the spirit and mystical.

Perhaps you are not making it understood that you are not a Buddhist but simply utilizing the Buddhist technique of meditation. That is not difficult to understand really.

Any way why do you care what others think? Or are you unsure yourself?

May I ask your age?

I'm 18. I am quite sure of myself.
I merely like to be able to articulate my beliefs to my friends or those who I am interested in carrying on relavent discussions with.

No, I do not believe in the 4 Noble Truths. I can see how they can make sense to those who have suffered from craving and have been unable to satiate their desires, and even hold quite a degree of respect for those who adhere to such beliefs. However, I do not believe in the denial of the physical world. This world is too beautiful and pleasurable to deny.

I have always found Buddhism fascinating to study; especially Hinayana. I have found that both Buddhism and Yoga have gone far in mapping the human psyche. However, both are ultimately about denying the ego, while Satanism is about nurturing the ego. That divergence will never find a satisfying synthesis...ever. Do you have a particular branch of Buddhism that you find more appealing than the rest?

The Traditions of the Lesser Wheel (Hinayana) have always had particular appeal, as well as Zen (which is Mahayana, but bears a similarity to Hinayana).

So then you aren't a Buddhist at all.

Based on what you've told us so far, I don't see any trouble with what you're actually doing. However, the way you're labeling it is misleading. A Satanist who practices meditation is not a "Satanic Buddhist", any more than a Satanist who delights in grand halls filled with organ music is a "Satanic Catholic".

If you eat Chinese food, does that make you Chinese?

Meditation techniques alone do not a religion make.

They are only tools.

The ultimate goal of Buddhism is to recognize the non-existence of a personal self (theraveda) and to identify with all that is (mahayana).

Satanism is devoted to the enhancement of a sense of the personal self (ego) as well as a rational enjoyment of the pleasures of life.

We don't care if the ego is an "illusion" or not and are here to enjoy the ride in any case.

That is about as far apart as one can get from Buddhist goals and perspectives.

We want to live.

They want something else.

If you want to live you are in the right place.

If you want something else then you are in the wrong place.

My suggestion?

Choose life!

(Now I'll read the other posted replies).

I agree with this philosophy. I'm here because I believe in Vital Existence and the ego, not self-denial or abstinence. However, the Buddhist meditation techniques continue to benefit me. You are right, though. I am not a Buddhist.

Is that "OM" as in the groan of someone in pain?

Buddhism is supposed to be about ceasing the pain that comes with assuming you are that horrid little sense of having a personal self (that we call ego).

Is that "Mo" in the sense of "More"?

Satanism is certainly in favor of satisfying that horrid sense of having a personal self (called ego) by having more pleasures.

It is really funny. You get hungry. You have MO food. You enjoy eating and then feel satisfied.

Repeat.

That is Satanism.

You get hungry. You think, "If only I didn't have this sense of personal self (called ego) I wouldn't feel this hunger.

You eat something. You chide yourself for still feeling that you "suffer" hunger and all the other things that come up in life. The hunger stops but you still feel cheated because you are unenlightened.

That is Buddhism.

I like the first one better!

Read The Relaxation Response by Herbert Benson, MD, professor of cardiology at the Harvard Medical School.

Correct meditative techniques can have many very real and positive benefits.

They are not owned by any religion.

What you mean to say is that you don't condone violence, yes?

Because certainly you're aware that "violence" is just another form of communication amongst the inhabitants of Earth, no believing is necessary.

Generally it means one of three things.

1) Get away from that, it's mine.
2) Get away from that, I want it.
3) I'm taking this, deal with it.

There are other reasons of course, and the above reasons are deeper than the simplified versions I've provided, but those are the big three, sort of like the automobile industry.

It is a form of communication, but I believe (at least for myself) that most conflicts can be solved without implementing it, and prefer not to revert to barbarism in favor of more intelligent resolutions.

The problem with being a Buddhist AND a Satanist is that both differ dramatically in terms of their underlying worldviews and assumptions.

Buddhism, like most standard religions, assumes that:

*Humans are inherently fallen and flawed
*This life is not all there is
*This life pales in comparison to the afterlife/the Great Beyond
*Abstinence and temperance are the ways to enlightenment and purification
*The universe is governed/supported by a more-or-less inflexible and straightforward *moral* code. Good is good, and bad is bad, and never the two shall meet or become confused. Those who violate the code are inevitably and predictably punished.*

Of course, to Buddhism's credit, it doesn't necessarily rag on humanity the way, say, Christianity does, and the Eightfold Path can potentially be interpreted rather Satanically. It also isn't as anti-nature as other religions. And, it is often true that we suffer in life because we have desires that aren't met. But, beyond this, Buddhism and Satanism see the world quite differently at core level.

And, I gotta say, I did rather like this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%B6gyam_Trungpa

But, like others here have said, Eastern religions have some wonderful tools that you can use. I recommend you check out Taoism (especially Chuang Tzu), Wang Yang Ming, Hsun Tzu, and Yang Chu. Don't limit yourself to Buddhism; Confucianism has a lot to offer, too (as seen by the aforementioned scholars), as does Hinduism and Taoism. Mo-ism (which is extinct, and was founded by Mo Tzu, not to be confused with Mao Tse Tung) is total shit, however .


*Satanism does maintain that the universe runs on certain laws and rules of thumb, of course, and some of these could be said to be moral. It is also true that those who do not recognize the laws of nature often get bitchslapped. But, where actual morality's concerned, Satanism doesn't take as black-and-white a view as other religions, and instead maintains that morality is contextual and sometimes even irrelevant, and that it is certainly possible for a person or organism to do very naughty or malicious things and totally get away with it.

As for violence, you may not believe in it, but it believes in you .

Seriously, I agree with you that there are lots of situations that could be solved quite nicely without violence, and that we should seek out non-violent solutions when and where they will be most appropriate and most feasible. Violence can cause a lot of stress, use up a lot of resources, and do a lot of needless damage. But, sometimes violence is necessary, and other times, violence is inevitable. So, you should never project your dislike of violence onto the outside world, or expect others to share your enlightened point of view.

I know close to nothing about buddhism, andit's been years since I read anything about it.

But I seem to remember briefly reading about an alternate form of buddhism inwhich they take the complete opposite approach to "enlightenment", which was said to be more direct but also more "risky". They do it by essentially "drowning their ego's in indulgence", kind of like the "smoke untill your sick as a dog" cure for smoking.... Sounds like a pretty slick excuse to me .

Does anyone think they mite know what I'm talking about? ... It's also possible I just made it up ... and if so, sorry 4 wasteing your precious brainpower.

Before I discovered I was actually a Satanist, I considered myself a Buddhist for several years, and used to meditate daily.

From my experience I would wholeheartedly agree with what others have already said in this thread - that one can benefit from certain Buddhist meditation practices without taking on board the beliefs of Buddhism itself.

I, personally, haven't done any meditation for the past couple of years, but don't rule out using it as a tool at some point in the future. For me Hatha Yoga has replaced meditation in my life - I feel it gives me the benefits I got from meditating, plus keeping me more flexible and feeling less like 'a tin man who needs oiling'!!

Yes...there is a form of Buddhism (Vajrayana) that teaches you to indulge until you grow tired of the flesh.
I have been doing that for a long time, and have yet to get tired of it.

The 4 noble truths are to buddhism as the 9 Satanic statements are to Satanism. If you disagree with them you are not a buddhist. Meditation however is a different matter. I personally practice meditation borrowing methods from buddhism and a few other religions but I do not call myself a buddhist.

You are right.
That brings up another issue. A lot of different religions seem to "work" for some people. Granted...by "work", I mean a philosophical band aid that keeps emotionally damagd people from bleeding all ove everybody...but whatever gets em through the night, I guess.
But, still...

You hear the same argument from addicts. "It makes me happy." Most religions are psychological crutches just as much as narcotic addictions or emotional codependencies.

Yes, and you will probably have to wait till the 25th reincarnation to have a plate of spiritual soup in the shape of a little yellow bird. I also like the first better.
Yes, why not? Mo is MOre, and it is much better than OM, who is OMinous.

Remember, "Nemo" is OM spelled backwards but without the EN!

Now that I think of it... Nemo is a rather humble name for a Satanist isn't it?

Well, now when I look at your name I am going to have this vision in My mind:

Ancient Seinfield:

"Hello Polyphemus"!

"HELLO NOMAN"!
