What lies behind the simplistic image of the happy Buddhist? | Aeon Essays
"Instead, some arguments run, we’ve enabled the use of Buddhist tools to reinforce structures that lead to suffering – for instance, Buddhist-based mindfulness practices are used to teach dissatisfied cogs in corporate or social systems to suck it up and move along."

Practicing lam-rim as a householder
Then as we remember bodhicitta, as we relate with the practice of bodhicitta, any activity that we do with the practice of bodhicitta—all our work in the factories, on the ships or in business—becomes the cause to achieve enlightenment. If our activities are done with the motivation of bodhicitta, they become the bodhisattva’s practice.

The Yoga of Sleeping
We can transform sleep into virtue by doing the yoga practice of sleeping. When we go to bed, lie down in the position of the lion sleeping. This is the same position that Guru Shakyamuni Buddha had when he passed away. Keep the right side perfectly on the bed, then put the right hand under the right cheek. Keep both of the legs straight, then stretch the left arm along the left leg.

Intuitive Insight, by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu
Now,intuitive insight, or what we call ‘seeing Dhamma’, is not by any means the same thing as rational thinking. One will never come to see Dhamma by means of rational thinking.

How worldly dharma and holy dharma differ
Nobody can tell from external appearances who has renounced this life and who hasn’t. ... Renouncing this life is a mental action, not a physical action.

Why is Buddhism followed mainly outside of India when it originated there?
I feel like this is the case with most religions. For instance, Christianity is practiced more outside of the middle east than it is within the middle east. Actually now that I think about it, this applies for lots of fields and practices such as martial arts, olympic sports, philosophies, and even math and science. Soccer (futbol) is practiced more outside its country of origin these days then within its original location.
Every inspired leader lives spontaneously in their life and instills a fresh experience of awakening to any who are ready to be broken open so to speak to this moment. What happens after they are gone, too often, is a division into antagonistic camps. This can squash the original innocence of awakening. ... What really determines where an idea is stopped is where it crashes into the power grid of its day. And then sometimes it transmutes again.

Did the Buddha speak Pali? Are the suttas his word verbatim?
The short answer is no, and no. The Pāḷi Canon is a translation. ... we do not know what language the Buddha spoke. In fact we do not really know what his name was, so how could we know his language!?

Is Buddhism a religion or a philosophy? | Big Think
If you were to go by the stream of psychology and neuroscience books published over the last two decades, you’d think Buddhism is an intricate philosophical system designed by a man with a keen insight for the emergence of psychoanalysis and philosophy some twenty-four hundred years down the road.

This Jumping Gene spreads through marine animals' DNA
[T]he leukemia was associated with a new gene, which they called Steamer. It’s a retrotransposon -- a jumping gene that can make copies of itself and paste those facsimiles elsewhere in the clam’s genome.
[T]here are several cases where evolution has repurposed jumping genes—and the retroviruses that arose from them—into the basis for new adaptations.
The syncytin gene, which is essential for creating the placenta, came from the envelope of a retrovirus. Parts of our immune systems have been rewired by retroviruses. And the Arc gene, which helps us to learn from experience and make new memories, comes from the same group of retrotransposons to which Steamer [the jumping gene] belongs.
