As I mentioned in those threads about forum governance, people come and go for a variety of reasons. There are lots of in-person real life issues people need to take care of (family, work, school, etc) from time to time. I don’t want to speak for him, but can assure you it is merely real-life priorities, nothing against DW.

what happened to Bodom btw
@ DNS « Fri 3:44 am »
Each forum has it’s own specific focus. DWE is "Engaged Buddhism forum, a nonsectarian community discussing the application of the Dharma to social and environmental issues."
@ LuisR « Fri 1:54 am »
Why is better suited for that forum?
@ DNS « Fri 1:50 am »
Those topics are better suited for: https://dharmawheel.org/
@ LuisR « Fri 12:21 am »
I didnt realize it was worng for buddhist to speak out against racism
@ LuisR « Fri 12:16 am »
Wow I am so disapointed
@ salayatananirodha « Thu 4:27 am »
It is, and it seems more likely one would receive sustaining, beneficial support and sympathy from fellow buddhists. Professionals are fine too, it doesn’t speak very faithfully of the forum that one couldn’t be open about something so serious
@ DNS « Thu 4:25 am »
It’s a matter of life and death, literally.
@ DNS « Thu 4:25 am »
What if they didn’t?
@ salayatananirodha « Thu 4:25 am »
What if someone gave good (dhammic) advice?
@ DNS « Thu 4:24 am »
People with those expressions should seek professional help or at the very least contact a suicide hotline immediately. Getting advice from random people on the internet is not the best place for advice and someone might say (write) something that might just push them over the edge.
@ salayatananirodha « Thu 4:24 am »
That is what I said

if creating a thread about his views is deemed ad-hominem then any critique of any view should be deemed as a breach of 2.g Attacks against the Buddha, Dhamma, or Sangha

Ryuko, can you find a facility that can keep up with the demands of your ex-wife?

"Bhikkhus, how do you conceive it: is form permanent or impermanent?" — "Impermanent, venerable Sir." — "Now is what is impermanent painful or pleasant?" — "Painful, venerable Sir." — "Now is what is impermanent, what is painful since subject to change, fit to be regarded thus: ’This is mine, this is I, this is my self’"? — "No, venerable sir."

@ budo « Wed 1:59 pm »
we cannot maintain/manage things to our satisifcation (anicca), this makes us unsatisfied (dukkha), and therfore we are helpless (anatta)
@ budo « Wed 1:59 pm »
anicca leads to dukkha therefore anatta

Does anybody know what the abbreviations "MS" and "VRI" stand for in the Mahasi Sayadaw's Notes section of the Manual of Insight?
@ rightviewftw « Wed 11:50 pm »
my first thought is that your sons should be helping you, they are more indebted to her than you are. Taking care of the sick is good, afaik the Tathagata said that he who would nurse him should nurse the sick.
@ Ryuko34 « Wed 6:31 pm »
I am living with ex wife who is seriously mentally ill and who will never get better. I returned to relieve my grown sons of this burden so that they may have a life. I am a Buddhist member of a Dharma Teaching group Sanga- I work with At Risk kids GangMembers . She is a tremendous burden on and off meds falls through all the safety nets ! If I left she’d be eating out of garbage cans and acting like a werewolf - melts down . How do I continue , when there are no real options .. My practice sustains me but I still feel depleated she’s so very angry and sad all of the time?!.... Any suggestions how my Buddhist Oractice can help me further?!
@ Ryuko34 « Wed 6:24 pm »
I am a Buddhist member of Dharma Treaching Order Non Ordained I live with my exwife who is mentally ill. I returned to care for her , rather than have the burden plCed upon my three grown sons. She will never recover SPMI. How do I cope as a Buddhist to the enormous pain stress and emotional turmoil I’m subjected too 24 hrs a day?!... My practice sustains me . But I still break down . My Sanga my mentor have no answers nor my Drs.. A hobsean choice . I can’t go she falls between all the cracks
