Re: Recieved alcohol as gift

Perhaps learning how to make vinegar out of it would be the most useful thing as was suggested before.
That way there is no waste of time, effort and whatever the intention of the original gift giver, something useful would arise.

I also cook with wine, though admittedly, I don't use it often.

Re: Going forth with children

I was under the impression that when a person goes to ordain, making sure all worldly obligations are properly disposed of was one of the requirements. Just as if I want to be a nun, I have to deal with my student loans first so that I can focus on the work without worldly distractions. So whether t...

Hello from Arizona

Hello, I've been studying Buddhism on and off for several years. Bhante Yuttadhammo's videos have been a large part of my most recent studies.
