I would like to see Christianity in Touhou, but Gensokyo is Japan, and there are not many Christians in Japan.
Christianity in Japan is something foreign.
Also, I imagine that ZUN must be afraid of putting Christianity in his games for fear of generating controversy.
although the pc-98 games had a lot of references to hebrew religions,but they were more like references to shin megami tensei.

>> No.38308317

It's not about "becoming one with death," as the that mindset is explicitly warned against as the false path of annihilationism (the whole Middle Path doctrine, the idea of the median between annihilationisn and eternalism). It is more transcend the cycle of samsara altogether, of both life and death.

Enlightenment (or, the state of being fully awake) is defined as having a completely empty head, your mind being an endless void.
Essentially nothingness

A person who has attained the goal Nibbana is thus indescribable because they have abandoned all things by which they could be described". The Suttas themselves describe the liberated mind as 'untraceable' or as 'consciousness without feature', making no distinction between the mind of a liberated being that is alive and the mind of one that is no longer alive.

In Buddhism, the term anattā or anātman refers to the doctrine of "non-self", that there is no unchanging, permanent self, soul or essence in living beings.
Buddhism, from its earliest days, has denied the existence of the "self, soul" in its core philosophical and ontological texts. In its soteriological themes, Buddhism has defined nirvana as that blissful state when a person, amongst other things, realizes that he or she has no self, no soul.
Nirvana is finally recognizing you don't exist and fading off into the void.

Koishi's presence cannot be noticed by other beings unless she allows it, even while standing in plain view because she's closed
her Third Eye. This had the side effect of sealing away her own conscious mind, causing her to lose all thoughts and motives; she could no longer be hated, but neither could she be loved, or even remembered by people who saw her.
Likewise, her older sister's ability to read minds has no effect on her, as she does not technically have a mind to read.
Byakuren Hijiri becomes interested in Koishi, as she thinks her state of mind – one of emptiness – is quite close to enlightenment. At the monk's request, Koishi converted to the Buddhist faith.

>Lots of fairies would likely lose their innocence.
What do you mean by that.
If you're making a catholic church reference, that would only apply to little boys, or just boys in general.

>> No.38309476

It's "void", but as "void is form" and "form is void." It's not purely an annihilation into nothingness, since the distinction between form and void is illusory. You exist, but also don't, and you don't both exist and not exist, and to say that the truth is one of pure non-existence is a fallacy (source: Venerable Kuukai's writings). The sentence "The Suttas...[make] no distinction between the mind of a liberated being that is alive and the mind of one that is no longer alive" is accurate however.

To be honest, I'm not really versed in that part of 2hu lore about Koishi/Hijiri, and I find Touhou kind of bastardizes Buddhism a little bit for my tastes.

The Orthodox pic is a priest from a hermit monastery and the Catholic pic are Cofradías a charity group that dress like that for Easter. Both don't go to market places and preach out loud.
You're thinking of Protestant street preachers and you miss the point about the scripture you quoted.
The sin of the Pharisees was not public prayer but a haughty spirit.
Here the sin is not the audible nature of the prayer but its pretentiousness. Jesus condemns the hypocrisy of pretending to have a relationship with God while oppressing the very people He loves.
Jesus is not condemning the fact that people prayed aloud, but that they were putting on a public display for their own benefit. Their motive—to be seen of men—was the problem. Such prayer is not real prayer, but empty words meant for the ears of other people.

ur telling me the word of god isnt supposed to be preached out loud in a market place? the pharisees love the salutations in the marketplace aka the titles and greetings and prestige. same as how catholics give themselves all these dumb titles like ones god said to never give like father.

Reading comprehension: learn it.
I already addresses that public prayer wasn't the issue.
Communal prayer is one way a local church worships God and encourages one another. What Jesus condemns is arrogance and hypocrisy. For someone who is clearly disobedient to God to lead a public prayer as though he or she had much to brag about is the kind of hypocrisy that Jesus denounced. To use public prayer as a means of showing off or impressing others is wrong. But sincere prayer from a humble heart is always welcomed by God and can be an encouragement to those who hear it (Psalm 51:17).

1 John 2:27 KJV

Only Catholics are papists and I'm not Catholic.
1 John 2:18–27 warns against those who oppose Christ in their teachings. These ''anti-Christs'' deny that Jesus is God. They reject Him as part of the Trinity, or claim He did not appear in the flesh. John again makes reference to truth ''abiding'' in someone, encouraging his readers to hold to the gospel that saved them.

Proverbs 28:5
>Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD comprehend fully.
John himself is, at that moment, doing a kind of teaching. Jesus commanded us to teach the nations all things (Matthew 28:19–20). teaching is a spiritual gift from God that he would want us to use (Ephesians 4:11–12).
John tells his readers that they do not need anyone to teach them, he is talking about something specific. He is talking about the things that they heard from the beginning. Scholars believe that the book was written specifically to oppose an early kind of Gnosticism which had already crept into the church. These deceivers taught that Jesus had not come in the flesh. In the words of John (1 Jn 2:20-23) that some had denied that Jesus was the Messiah. It is the correct teaching about who Jesus is that John is certain they do not need anyone to teach them about. He also believes that their anointing in the Holy Spirit will help them to know other things as well, but he is quite certain that they were taught correctly about who Jesus is from the beginning.

Zun admits he doesn't know much about Taoism.
>There are few things that aren't hard when I make a game, but in this case it was coming up with the story. I don't really know much about Taoism, so I read a bunch of books about it. Honestly, I don't think I had read a book that mentioned Prince Shotoku didn't exist so I thought I should find some that did. People know him because of his famous quotes but the fact that he never existed becomes sort of common sense. That's the part I wanted to analyze the most, and confirm if the tales about him were true. The most mainstream of which is that not even Prince Umayado existed. I think so as well, particularly since the anecdotes about him listening to 10 people at once are baloney. That's why I made him the focus of the story, and put those headphones on Miko to make it seem that she values her hearing. While that might be because she didn't like hearing too much, I wanted to emphasize that part of her character as much as possible.
In fact he made 13's "antagonist" Shotoku since at the he had been declared fictional.
>He's suddenly been made into a fictional character recently, so I used the opportunity to move him to Gensokyo. Many thanks~
