________ Mixing the Martial Arts Practices _______
________ With the Buddhism of the Lotus Sutra ____

This 20-pager is contained in an Adobe PDF file, stored as a Google Doc. It was written at the end of the Bush administration and is provided here as a basis for the rest of this. Read it and weep.

Mixing slander with the Buddhism of the Lotus Sutra is entirely Shinto, and Shinto is entirely the creature of toxic Zen.

There are three versions of the file:

________ The Oscar Slap and Tai Chi (Physical Zen} ___________

Shaolin Tai Chi and Qigong are derived from Physical Zen and Shaolin Kung Fu. Tai Chi and Qigong actually come directly from Bodhidharma's meditations on flows in the body. They are inseparable from each other, and from their source.

He emerged after nine years of seclusion and wrote two classics: Yi Jin Jing or Yi Gin Ching - Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic and Xi Sui Jing (or Shii Soei Ching - Marrow/Brain Washing Classic.

The Muscle/Tendon Changing Classic taught the priests how to gain health and change their physical bodies from weak to strong. The Marrow/Brain Washing Classic taught the priests how to use Qi to clean the bone marrow and strengthen the blood and immune system, as well as how to energize the brain and attain enlightenment. Because the Marrow/Brain Washing Classic was harder to understand and practice, the training methods were passed down secretly to only a very few disciples in each generation.

Qigong was a primary art of the Shaolin temple, until it was sacked and almost all of the inhabitants were massacred about 200 years ago. But a few escaped the fate of the many believers of Qigong.

Will Smith on Tai Chi:

"Will does know some martial arts as he practices tai chi with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Will seems to enjoy more low-intensity martial arts as he refers to tai chi as 'Kung Fu for 40-year olds.' "

by Sandra Robinson, 2020/10/06
https://celebanswers.com/does-will-smith-know-martial-arts/

So, "The Slap," in the face of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, had some "middle-aged" preparation. His wife began her career in films showing some mastery of the martial arts as a tough girl.

Physical Zen is just another Zen practice, like raking the sand in a Zen garden, or committing Hara Kiri or Seppuku (belly-cutting with a sharp knife after writing a parting Zen koan.)

"... the Zen school is the invention of the heavenly devil"
- Nichiren Daishonin, "Letter to Akimoto", WND I, p. 1016.

https://www.nichirenlibrary.org/en/wnd-1/Content/144#para-14

Zen is a horrible slander of the Law and leads to miserable results in one's life and for countless lives after this one. You dig out the space beneath your feet with every Zen action, and then with a glorious victory just out of reach, you are plunged into the void: it is like turning a corner, or walking through a portal into a horror story of a different world with no way back.

However, the Lotus Sutra does allow you to repair your broken karma. (See at the bottom of this issue.)



________ Zen Mayor Adams (Green Dragon Zen} __________

Once upon a time, there was a previous high official of the City of New York, who was a physical Zen master:

From: About Bernard Kerik
https://bernardkerik.com/about/

"Mr. Kerik is a 7th Degree Master Instructor in the martial arts, studying both Korean and Japanese Karate, and has been inducted into the Centurion Black Belt Hall of Fame, received the Joe Lewis Eternal Warrior Award and in 2019 he was inducted into the World Tae Kwon Do Hall of Fame."

Yeah, a real mixed martial arts champion, a real tough guy. So, that genius of a mayor Rudy Giuliani appointed him Commissioner of the New York City Department of Correction, in office: 1998–2000.

Having solved all the problems of Ryker's Island, (Right? Isn't Ryker's just a paradise, now?) Bernard Kerik was again promoted by Rudy as Police Commissioner of New York City, in office: August 21, 2000 – December 31, 2001 (to the end of Giuliani's term as Mayor:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kerik#Law_enforcement)

The September 11 2001 attacks were executed against the city under his "protection" during his tenure. It appears as if misfortune is directed towards the jurisdiction placed under the protection of highly positioned Zen men. Let's see if the pattern repeats.

https://www.history.com/topics/us-presidents/george-w-bush-declares-mission-accomplished-video
From aboard the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003, standing directly under a "Mission Accomplished" banner, President George W. Bush declares, "In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed."

17 days later, Bernard Kerik was placed in charge of training all the Iraqi police forces as the interim Interior Minister of Iraq and also as the senior policy adviser to U.S. presidential envoy to Iraq, Paul Bremer, another genius bureaucrat: Minister of the Interior of Iraq, in office: May 18, 2003 – September 2, 2003
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kerik#Interim_Minister_of_Interior_of_Iraq

After that appointment all hell broke loose and the insurgency in Iraq lead to the emergence of Al Qaeda in Iraq, which did not previously exist IN IRAQ, under a man named Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, as the 1st Emir of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, which led directly to ISIS. The enormous black dog of misfortune that is the punishment for Zen slander, does not quickly let go when it bites down and shakes its victim over and over again.

President Bush then nominated Bernard Kerik as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, which was hastily withdrawn in great embarassment, since Bernard was headed to prison. Turns out that, during his tenure as Interior Minister of Iraq, Kerik secretly accepted and failed to report a $250,000 interest-free "loan" from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer, a gift later determined to be a bribe, for which he was indicted by the US government and sentenced to prison.It is an open question as to what Wertheimer expected to receive in return for the money:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kerik#Nomination_as_U.S._Secretary_of_Homeland_Security

After a stint in the Federal Penitentiary in May 2010 for three years plus three years supervised release, Kerik was granted a presidential pardon for his federal convictions by Donald Trump on February 18, 2020. This was a debt that must be repaid by the Zen man to Donald Trump in kind.

In gratitude he went to work on the 2020 Trump campaign (another glorious success, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory), afterwards standing behind Rudy Giuliani at the famous Four Seasons (Landscaping) press conference in Philly. He was one of many claiming to have the evidence of widespread voter fraud: Stop the Steal!

If you wonder how all that cartoonish QAnon stuff can be taken for reality, remember the presence of leading Zen men D.T. Suzuki across Europe, and "Zen In the Art of Archery" writer Eugen Herrigel as the Rector of Erlangen-Nuremberg University, just across town from the offices of the major anti-semitic propaganda rag "Der Stürmer" in the heart of Bavaria as the Nazis grew strength and the public seriously believed what became prominent in the cartoons of Der Stürmer in that time about Jews drinking the blood of Christian children. Zen IS a cartoon of human life, and the prominence and acceptance of Zen and its proponents leads to the people under the influence of that prominence living in a cartoon reality.

From:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kerik#2020_presidential_election
"Among the documents Kerik provided was one sent by Giuliani associate Maria Ryan. She had received a proposed plan from QAnon conspiracy circulator Ron Watkins on November 11, 2020, which was meant to facilitate the overturning of the election. She forwarded it the next day to her team member Kerik. Watkins stated he had discovered 'weak points' in voting machines manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems."

"Ryan forwarded to Ron Watkins the Kerik offer to help overturn the election. The Watkins plan for Trump to remain in office incorporated what was termed, an 'astroturfing cult.' The instruments for effectuating the plan were to utilize an army of social media MAGA posters and gathering protests outside the homes of lawmakers as a means of intimidation."

This "homes of lawmakers intimidation", morphed into intimidation at their workplace, the Capitol Building and the rest is history on January 6, 2021.

All that, just for putting a physical Zen master in a position of authority and responsibility.
___________________________________________________________

Remember the famous quote from a Western Ch'an (Chinese Zen) master, "If you see the Buddha walking down the street, kill him."

Keeping that Zen admonition in mind, we have another top Zen cop in New York City that has recently emerged into prominence once again 20 years after Kerik, the destroyer of worlds, but this time he is the Mayor, Eric Adams, and not just physical Zen, this time it's Green Dragon Zen, seated Soto Zen meditation, the real thing, a full throttle determined attack deconstructing the ground under the feet of the Buddhas in the ten directions.

From:
https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/14/us/politics/eric-adams-wellness-vegan.html
"Stressed after leaving the police force, he [Adams] eventually learned to meditate with the assistance of Bob Roth, who is known for both his star-studded clientele (he has worked with Ms. Winfrey, Lady Gaga, the Seinfeld family and Katy Perry, among others) and for his work helping at-risk constituencies cope with trauma."

" 'There was a sense of, he really hoped that this was going to help because he had these serious health issues,' Mr. Roth said. 'He's not afraid to be who he is.' "

"The mayor grew philosophical when asked which public persona — stern ex-cop, blissed-out 'Zen mayor' — best reflects the real Eric Adams."

" 'I am constantly evolving,' he said, preparing his smoothie. 'Who I am today is not who I am tomorrow.' "

From:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Adams#Tenure [as NYC Mayor]
"Shortly after becoming mayor, Adams sought a waiver from the Conflicts of Interest Board to hire his brother, Bernard, for a $210,000 paying job in the NYPD where he would serve as his 'personal security detail.' Bernard started working the job on December 30, 2021, two days before Adams was inaugurated as mayor. Adams was accused of nepotism for this pick. Adams said white supremacy and anarchists are on the rise and 'suggested that he can trust no one in the police department as much as he can his own kin.' He was also criticized for his hiring of Philip Banks III, a former NYPD commander, to serve as deputy mayor for public safety. Banks had been the subject of a federal investigation by the FBI in 2014, the same year he resigned from the police force."

"Eight days into Adam's tenure as Mayor, an apartment fire in the Bronx killed 17 people including eight children. In response to the fire, Adams announced that a law requiring self-closing doors to prevent smoke and fires from spreading throughout apartment buildings would be enforced. However, his administration faced criticism for its slow response in distributing disaster funds to those impacted by the fire."

"New York City faced a significant uptick in crime during the first month of Adams's tenure as Mayor. The uptick in crime was highlighted by the shooting deaths of two NYPD officers, Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, when responding to a domestic disturbance in Harlem. In response, Adams announced that he would be bringing back a police unit made up of plainclothes officers, which was disbanded by de Blasio in 2020 following the murder of George Floyd. The unit was officially revived on March 16, 2022. In the midst of the crime spree, President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland visited New York City and vowed to work with Adams to crack down on homemade firearms, which lack traceable serial numbers and can be acquired without background checks."

"In February 2022, a video of Adams from 2019 leaked in which the then-Borough President boasted about being a better cop than his 'cracker' colleagues. Adams apologized for his comments, saying, 'I apologize not only to those who heard it but to New Yorkers because they should expect more from me and that was inappropriate.' "

"In February 2022, as part of his efforts to improve the standard of living in New York City, Adams implemented a zero-tolerance policy for homeless people sleeping in subway cars or in subway stations. Under the plan, police officers, assisted by mental health professionals, are tasked with removing homeless people from the subway system and directing them to homeless shelters or mental health hospitals. The plan has been met with criticism from some activists. The Adams administration also took a stand against homeless encampments that were built on the streets of New York. In the first three months of Adam's tenure, more than 300 homeless encampments had been declared. Adams defended these actions arguing that the encampments were unhygienic and the site of open drug use."

"On April 11, 2022, Adams was diagnosed with COVID-19 and entered into quarantine for 10 days. While quarantined, a man shot 10 people on a Subway in Brooklyn. Adams worked virtually to issue a response to the attack and criticized the national 'overproliferation' of guns as being responsible for gun violence."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_New_York_City_Subway_attack#Suspect
"[Frank Robert] James' beliefs have been linked to black nationalism, and he has been outspoken in his criticisms toward mayor Eric Adams and New York City's mental health services in several YouTube videos. He implied that a 'race war' was imminent and said that 'White people and Black people should not have any contact with each other.' James characterized the situation of African-Americans as an 'American Auschwitz' and said that 'the seed is already planted for a Nazi Party to rise in this country again and I believe it will.' "

And all of that after less than 4 months after the inauguration of the Zen Mayor, Eric Adams. Stellar!



________ Zen President Putin and _________________
________ Judo/Sambo/Karate (Physical Zen) ________

For years, certifiably insane people have been hailing as a genius, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the ex-KGB master of Dezinformatsia (disinformation), and a real mass/serial murderer and genocidal maniac.

He is of course, the most prominent Zen man in history, since he holds personal control over the largest collection of deliverable nuclear weapons in the world. If it weren't for Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan, he would have twice as many nuclear weapons to make the rubble bounce. Vladimir Putin feels his control over his nuclear weapons has made the Zen man unstoppable and supreme over all other people in the world, the master of worldly affairs, capable of anything and culpable for nothing.

From:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Putin#Sports

"Putin has been practicing judo since he was 11 years old, before switching to sambo at the age of fourteen. He won competitions in both sports in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg). He was awarded eighth dan of the black belt in 2012, becoming the first Russian to achieve the status. Putin also practises karate."

"He [Vladimir Putin] co-authored a book entitled Judo [with Vasily Shestakov and Alexey Levitsky] in Russian, and Judo: History, Theory, Practice in English (2004). Benjamin Wittes, a black belt in taekwondo and aikido and editor of Lawfare, has disputed Putin's martial arts skills, stating that there is no video evidence of Putin displaying any real noteworthy judo skills."

So, Vladimir Putin, a little over a month ago, decided to genocidally wipe out Ukraine and what it means to be Ukrainian, because a Western democracy and free member of the European Union existing right next door to his gangster regime gas station was too much for him to tolerate. Having not learned the lesson that Leonid Brezhnev had to learn after his disastrous invasion of Afghanistan: that technology trumps armor, he now faces Leonid's fate.

Just recently, he took away another child's stuffed horse in Kramatorsk and subsequently lost his favorite cruiser because of it.

Stuffed Horse:

Favorite Cruiser:

And he has lost his honorary presidency of the International Judo Federation because of his actions. What goes around, comes around.

https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/putin-suspended-honorary-president-international-judo-federation-2022-02-27/

Why is this happening?

Here's what I think: the Law at the heart of the Lotus Sutra rules earthly affairs, and in 1957, Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda called for the total abolition of nuclear weapons and gave that mission to the youth of the Soka Gakkai, headed by his closest disciple at his side, Daisaku Ikeda.

Now, SGI President Daisaku Ikeda is nearing the end of his life and that great admonition of his mentor is coming to fruition. There is an entanglement between Josei Toda and Daisaku Ikeda in 1957 and Daisaku Ikeda, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Vladimir Putin in 2022. It is simply cause and effect.

As horrible and disastrous as this process is, it appears that this was the only path through to removing these weapons from the world, one way or the other.

The common mortals who are the Buddhas in the 10 directions of this world have chosen this path that we are pursuing, courageously. I say we, because we are all in on this endeavour.

Now, I have total faith in the Gohonzon, the supreme object of devotion throughout Jambudvipa (the cosmos), by total, I mean 100%, not 99.999...%

I bet my life and all of yours on it, and I do not begrudge our lives for the purpose of Kosen Rufu. So, we shouldn't fear the future, because the future is Kosen Rufu, and we should focus on that instead of our fears of annihilation.

LS Chap. 16 .....

All harbor thoughts of yearning
and in their minds thirst to gaze at me.
When living beings have become truly faithful,
honest and upright, gentle in intent,
single-mindedly desiring to see the Buddha
not hesitating even if it costs them their lives,
then I and the assembly of monks
appear together on Holy Eagle Peak.
At that time I tell the living beings
that I am always here, never entering extinction,
but that because of the power of an expedient means
at times I appear to be extinct, at other times not,
and that if there are living beings in other lands
who are reverent and sincere in their wish to believe,
then among them too
I will preach the unsurpassed Law.
