    Default Are there Buddhist European preservationists?

    Does something like that exist? European preservationists who are at the same time Buddhists? Can ethnic preservationism be reconciled with the Dharma?

    Ommmmmmm.....

    Ask the Tibetan independence movement. They are pretty hard on their ethnic preservation.

    If you consider Julius Evola and his devotees to be European preservationists, then there certainly are.

    Yes, but what I'd like to know is how one can advance the cause of multiculturalism and non-European immigration in Croatia, if one spends all his time at the office trolling the internet?

    No idea what you are talking about. I am Romanian. And I am not advancing any cause of any multi-whatever.

    Pity I don't read Finnish so I cannot educate myself on writings of this interesting Buddhist European preservationist.

    I do not know of any, but I would certainly support such a movement. The idea of a European Buddhism is exciting. Hellenistic Buddha statues have been found as far afield as Gaul, and there were a number of Buddhists among the Greek kings of Northern India. I only take exception to the Buddhist doctrine of Anatman as opposed to the original Hindu doctrine of Atman. I believe the former is at the root of Buddhism's "life-denying" tendencies, and has been the central point of divergence between Buddhism and its mother religion(s), the caste-system coming in second.

    What then would make Buddhism in particular a better model for Europeans than, say, Advaita Vedānta or Kaśmir Śaivism? After all, the anatman doctrine (along with the corresponding reduction of the unitary Brahman into "zeroistic" Nirvāna) is the biggest theological distinction between the monistic orthodox schools and Buddhist heterodoxy.

    It wouldn't. Not in the least.

    I would very readily and heartily support a Vedantin movement, even more so a Kaśmiri Śaivite or Śakta one.

    But supposing hypothetically that only a Buddhist movement existed, it would be preferable to any based on an Abrahamic model.

    That depends on what makes a European.
