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...

Re: "#MeToo!" in Buddhism

The male conmen ride the spirit-circuit to wealth and fame by handing out oriental pajamas, the female groupies plug their noses while these old men grunt over them to become either a) the spirit-guide on the spirit-circuit or b) a professional-feminist-victim in academia, either a or b is Oprah-ma...

Is there here-&-now Parinibbana?
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...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

I was actually looking for buddhavacana from you wherein the Buddha directly comments on the meaning of the words he is talking about in a way that's congruent to your exegeses. I would particularly like one of the Buddha explaining "san", since you think it's so fundamental to the Dhamma. If you c...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

" san " means the good and bad things we acquire. We need to take in the good things ( kusalassa upasampadā ) and discard the bad things ( Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ ) to progress on the path. (from Dhammapada verse 183) Can you find a nice handy quote of the Buddha saying that there is such a word as "...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

The issue is that there is no such thing as a "san" word, so no one can do this but you and others in your sect, who invents these meanings. " san " means the good and bad things we acquire. We need to take in the good things ( kusalassa upasampadā ) and discard the bad things ( Sabbapāpassa akaraṇ...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

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." Oh. I see. This was supposed to be some kind of challenge. The issue ...
