The mission of each true knight, his duty, nay, his privilege...
To dream, the impossible dream!
To fight, the unbeatable foe!
To bear, with unbearable sorrow!
To run, where the brave dare not go!

To right, the unrightable wrong!
To love, pure and chaste from afar!
To try, when your arms are too weary!
To reach, the unreachable star!

This is my quest, to follow that star!
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far!
To fight for the right, without question or pause!
To be willing to march into Hell for a heavenly cause!
And I know, if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest!
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm, when I'm laid to my rest...
And the world, will be better for this!
That one man, scorned and covered with scars!
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage!
To reach the unreachable star!

Nah, Buddha's teachings are pretty clear on the whole "No violence" thing. Sometimes it's forbidden even if it's in self defense, for certain sects.

Not that any of that has ever stopped some people, like those in Myanmar, or the Japanese warrior monks you mention, for example. All those were always controversial, though.

Forbidden is a very strong word for this situation. They don't break commanments of the Creator of the Universe while doing so, it's their personal choice.

>> No.56207384

The Protomen practically mythologized the mega man franchise. All the elements of a good myth: Fatherhood, sibling rivalry, betrayal, sacrifice, heroism, creations turning against you, etc.

>> No.56207413

No, forbidden is the right word in this case. It is their own choice to follow the words of the Buddha or not, but he explicitly forbade violence, so if they choose to follow his words, it is forbidden.

The word "forbidden" has nothing to do with a higher power or anything like that, it literally means "not allowed."

>> No.56207452


>> No.56207484

No, forbidden is the wrong word because the Buddha doesn't have power to force you or punish you if you do otherwise. He gave them advice on how to escape the cycle. He isn't the maker and owner of the world who came to tell humans to follow his rules or else.

>> No.56207594

Not in their own lands they weren't. Mongolia just existed like that for centuries. Also since when did Buddhists care about the Pali texts? There are plenty of sects of Mahayana that have doctrines to explain why it's okay to drink carefully, though it's expressly something Gautama warned against, so there were many sects which similarly permit violence, all in the continued goal of helping others or yourself reach enlightenment. Violence is similarly just a dangerous tool that could impede your progress, that you'd have to be a force of nature to use without staining yourself.

Your sentiment highlights the misunderstanding of the west. They see compassion and peace and see it as the end goal of the origin of Buddhism, this fictional secularized religion, rather than a means of attaining escape from an altogether unsatisfactory world. You mistake means from ends. When the bond of ego is severed, what restrictions of the journey still apply?

>> No.56207596

>forbidden is the wrong word because the Buddha doesn't have power to force you or punish you
This is not a requirement for using "forbidden." Lots of things are forbidden without any way to enforce them. For example, if I was diabetic, I might be forbidden from eating certain foods because I could die, but nobody is actually going to stop me or punish me, I just risk dying. Similarly with Buddha's teachings, nobody is going to punish me from not obeying parts of them, but I might risk not achieving enlightenment.

Besides, even if it was a requirement, the punishment doesn't come from Buddha, but from whatever sect or school you join that forbids violence in self defense (not all of them do).

You misunderstand my point, and as a consequence are agreeing with me. Just like with Christianity, there are thousands of variations of Buddhism out there, and just like some Christians take "Thou shalt not kill" a lot more seriously than others, so do various Buddhist sects have different interpretations on what constitutes acceptable violence (if any). This also, of course, includes caring about the Pali canon. All of this does not change the fact that Buddha included warnings against violence (as you yourself point out), which some sects interpret as forbidding violence outright, while others do accept certain degrees of acceptable violence and others still are downright militant.

I have no misunderstandings in regards to Buddhism and violence, certainly not in the western hippy way that you seem to imply.

>> No.56207825

Maybe, just maybe it's the fact one of the very cornerstones of Buddhism is non-violence?

a Knight is sworn to Valor
his Heart knows only Virtue
his Blade defends the Helpless
his Might upholds the Weak
his Word speaks only Truth
his Wrath undoes the Wicked

I think that covers both.

"Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling...makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary. The definition's blurred. If I'm to choose between one evil and another, I'd rather not choose at all."

Geralt's monologue is the perfect response for any paladin given two shitty options, especially by someone looking to make them fall. You kick them to the curb and take the third, righteous option. If your God disagrees then you know they aren't worthy of worship.
