Re: Regarding Unwholesome root- Hatred and Karma

If you believe in true rebirth it has to do with your deeds more so than your thoughts. So your bad karma would build but you can lessen its effect by generating good karma in your life now that you have better insight. Not just on this matter with your sister-in-law but with all kind deeds you can ...

Re: crushing bad mind with good mind

I think in that instant you are allowing anger and passion to control you and absorbing it, what I am talking about happens after you have trained yourself enough that you have right action. You know that your feelings do not have to reflect your actions and you are able to decide between right acti...

Re: crushing bad mind with good mind

I believe that certain things in the mind are natural and the only real way to dispose of them is to observe them only as what they are, emotions, they do not need to take form or be "crushed" because we are buddhists and thinking in that way is wrong. I think instead of crushing them one should tak...

Re: Monasteries in North America

It gave us a long time to visit and talk to the monks and read the extensive library they have there. Many free books and many many more books that stay at the monastery but are free for people to read. I hope this helps.

Re: Monasteries in North America

I have visited Tisarana in Perth Ontario and they have been expanding to be able to make room for more monks in the recent months. I haven't been there for quite a while now but it is a very quiet and peaceful environment that I found very pleasant. Ven. Ajahn Viradhammo is the current Abbot, I foun...

Re: Is eradication of sexual desire the biggest sign?

I will give my point of view on the matter. I feel that casual sex is giving into sensual desire because it is only that. While in a healthy relationship partners who have sex it gives a lot more meaning. It can be an expression of passion or love, an emotional journey, something of importance. I am...
