Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

It has been 3 weeks since I underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor in the frontal lobe. I just wanted to provide an update and to thank everyone for having such “compassionate thoughts” I had no idea. I am glad you managed to recover. Many are not so lucky and many end with serious disabilities ...

Re: Was the Buddha an avatar of lord vishnu?

[It wouldn't be a Buddhist practice One might declare, that it would not be an orthodox Theravadin practice, at best. But even that is debatable, as a large number of (what one might flippantly call) 'Hindu gods' are a specific and undeniable part of the Pali Tipitaka; see DN 21, Sakkapañha Sutta ....

Re: Was the Buddha an avatar of lord vishnu?

I would advise the OP does his homework on why Viṣṇu allegedly became the ascetic Gautama.

Once again, since it must have been hidden in the previous post and uneasy to see.

Viṣṇupurāṇa, Book III Section XVIII

Re: Was the Buddha an avatar of lord vishnu?

IMO I would advise to go to the source text of this myth that the Buddha was an avatar of Viṣṇu. In the Viṣṇupurāṇa, Book III Section XVIII, Viṣṇu's descent and birth as the ascetic Gautama is explained an contextualized as a ploy to lead heretic asurāḥ (demonic titans) away from the Vedas, to cause...

Re: "#MeToo!" in Buddhism

actual spirituality is about negating lust, what you're speaking of may be false spirituality Your word against the word of some other people ... I think something is true, this is why I'm religious I guess this proves Binocular's thesis in your case, namely that Buddhism, like all religions, is ab...

Re: Your Opinion Matters

Animals don't necessarily learn the same way humans do. My parents used an invisible fence (a wire around the perimeter connected to a shock collar) to keep their dogs contained, but not all dogs can understand the causality of I go near place ---> I get shocked. I shouldn't go near place. Or even I...

This is a very, very, good question. I ask it myself often and I've never yet got an answer that didn't seem improvised.

Re: Foundations of Human Life - A road to Nirvana for the West

By seeing the cause of your unsatisfactoriness https://foundationsofhumanlife.com/1-ego-and-emotions/ The above sounds like a superstitious clinging to language. In English, the word "unsatisfactoriness" does not appear to be an "emotion". An English dictionary says: quality - an essential and dist...

Insulting me in Chinese isn't exactly a production of even a single sermon of the Buddha's that directly teaches about the alleged integral concept of "san". Can you do that instead of the above nonsense? I did not insult or state anything that is derogatory, I merely state the fact. With your deep...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Can you find a nice handy quote of the Buddha saying that there is such a word as "san" that means this? Can you find any example of the Buddha teaching like this? Maybe you should quote an instance of the Buddha himself directly explaining the meaning of this alleged term "san", since it is allege...
