One thing being in forums like this is noticing how people get rallied up about things.
Some of these topics include Buddhanature, emptiness, enlightenment and nirvana.
currently there's a thread on another forum running wild, going from one "simple question"- how is buddhanature connected to emptiness?- going from 1 page to 9 in just a few days, with people throwing qoutes, names and maybe soon the kitchen sink...
But my question really is, why do they get so rallied up about it?
is it just "our nature to defend our stance" for some reason, or something more?
If so, what?
Any thoughts in the matter?
