Greetings Dylan,

Nice sutta extracts, but... is there a topic here, or is it just a "resource" topic on View Clinging?

Metta,
Paul. :)

Re: The Dhamma and Science

The Buddha is more qualified than scientists. In what way is Buddha more qualified than scientists? Please elaborate. If Buddha were alive he wouldn't like to be over praise. He would be pleased with being just scientific I guess. Wouldn't you think so? The Buddha eliminate ignorance & all the disp...

Re: Uposatha Observance Days According to the Suttas

I found this in the Vinaya. Now at that time monks, thinking: “The recital of the Pātimokkha on an Observance day is allowed by the Lord,” recited the Pātimokkha three times during the half-month—on the fourteenth, on the fifteenth and on the eighth (days) of the half-month. They told this matter to...

Re: Where in the vinaya is the prohibition against monks asking for gifts/offerings?

I hope Ven Dhammanando or somebody of bhikkhus will give a more qualified answer, but for the time being, I will post what I found: I think there are offenses for asking for particular items from non-relative or without being invited (like robe material, special food, etc). But in general asking fo...

Uposatha Observance Days According to the Suttas & Vinaya

Hello, so I take Uposatha observance very seriously in accordance with the Buddha's instructions to the Sakyans in AN 10.46 . I understand that in the suttas the proper dates of observance is explained according to the ancient Indian lunar calendar & I read a bit about this calendar recently, as wel...

Degeneration of the World

At a time when rulers are unprincipled, officials become unprincipled. When officials are unprincipled, holy men and householders become unprincipled. When holy men and householders are unprincipled, the people of town and country become unprincipled. When the people of town and country are unprinc...

Re: Is the belief in re-birth damaging?

You being born in this life is also not you :)

using the teaching of anatta to dissociate from the consequences of your actions is not what the buddha intended

you will have to experience them, not someone else, only there will not really be any "you" involved
