OK. So, explain the meanings of all those “san” words with your meaning for “sam”.
How on earth do you intend to do this? Neither me nor Venerable Dhammanando has given you a definition of saṁ that is in any way either of "ours."

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

I have explained this in detail. " What is “San”? Meaning of Sansāra (or Samsāra) ", Jan 09, 2019 Yes, I saw it the first time around. But what was pseudo-philological silliness when posted in January doesn't become something different when it's re-posted in February. You did not provide any eviden...

Re: Muscular Christianity

I think there should be a Muscular Buddhist movement to counter all of the hippy, new age, gender-bender crap that has crept into burgeoning Western Buddhism. Out of curiousity how many transvestites attend the temple you frequent? I can't say I've seen a single one at any of the Theravāda or Mahāy...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Let us resolve one issue at a time. No, no, no, no, no! as the blessed Margaret Thatcher would say. I answered your question, now it's your turn to answer mine. What kind of language do you imagine Pali to be with regard to word-formation? If your first principles are all wrong, then anything deriv...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Without proper arguments, you are the one who is making fool of yourself constantly showing your dislike towards what Lal provided here. And when "proper arguments" are offered —as they they have repeatedly been, both here and at Sutta Central— you make a fool of yourself by responding with ill-tem...

Re: Devas

Greetings, I mean a place for us to placate the assembly of devas. Surely this is something that the suttas condone as wholesome? Create a topic in the Shrine Room then? :shrug: Metta, Paul. :) Paul.... Do you really think the devas would appreciate that? Well, shrines are how you generally venerat...

Re: What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles?

Which part of the original teachings, whatever they might be, are outdated or impractical in our current times? For one, the language. No one speaks Pāli natively at present, and those best suited to intuit the Pāli language from a native perspective are generally all Hindu or Muslim. The very tran...

Re: What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles?

What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles? Times change. The ascetic Gautama doesn't. He is gone. Times change, the dispensation much change to adapt to them. It's up to the individual to decide if X or Y teaching is that which is the law of nature, that which is a regular...

Re: Please consider deleting threads at the request of the OP

We agree, but in different ways. But regardless of the ways we differ, we both agree that that post is indicative of what is going on in the world.

With metta!
