Buddhadharma : Winter 2018
BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 67 RECENTLY, WHILE TEACHING in Brazil, I happened to mention devas and rebirth. The next morning, I received two complaints. The first was, “Why do we have to listen to this supernatural stuff? I don’t believe in anything except for the natural world I can see with my own eyes.” The second complaint was of a different sort: “Why are Western Buddhist teachers so afraid to talk about the supernatu- ral side of the Buddhist tradition?” To answer the second question, all I had to do was point to the first. “It’s because of questions like these. They scare teachers away from the topic.” I might have added that there’s an irony here. In an effort to be tolerant, Western Buddhist teachers have admitted dog- matic materialists into their ranks, but these materialists have proven very intolerant of the supernatural teachings attributed to the Bud- dha. If he was really awakened, they say, he wouldn’t have taught such things.
