Re: Is meditation bad for you?

One of the major problems people have in meditation is they get prana stuck in their head, and then they start to become a bit loopy. Depending on how much prana is stuck in their head, it can go from a little "weird" to full blown mentally insane. I imagine this is why people in Thailand use to be...

Re: benefits of cow urine

I have an Indian doctor friend and he consistently highlights the quack medicine and alternative therapies such as homeopathy and ayurveda promoted by indian media, "scientific" establishments and even politicians. The old maxim - just because it is on the Internet.... My doctor is an indian ayurve...

Re: Against the stream centers shutting down

So it was quite perplexing when I went online and learnt that in the west, there are retreats for men, for women , for LBGT, for blacks, etc. And all this is done so that people feel "comfortable". Just weird for me too They dont separate retreats by men and women where your from? If they did, it w...

Re: Against the stream centers shutting down

I used to watch their live streams on facebook. I have to say I find it weird they had a separate group for POC (people of color). I don't know why they hade to segregate things by race. Seems like a very American thing to do these days. It’s because minorities in America have been historically opp...

Re: Feminism for men

Girls like to have sex because sex feels good. Sex can feel good but it can lead to suffering; similar to how taking drugs can feel good but lead to suffering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKArhXSJjsY So become a celibate monk, and only eat 2 pieces of rice every day. You aren't going to do it. ...

High level Ajahns speak with the Buddha and Arahants. They don't need to learn from the suttas.
Asian supremacism strikes again, and we've got no right to take our place with the Buddhist race!
:woohoo:
High level Ajahns of any skin color.

That's probably because the prime minister (doesn't he look just like jonathan winters when he was younger?) has ordered everyone in the military to "like" it. (I just made that up...right speech violation).

Re: Americas new segregationists are on the left.

Do you know what videos trend in Southeast Asia on facebook, and get 50,000+ likes? Videos of American soldiers giving inspirational speeches. I think you must live in some alternate universe southeast asia. On facebook in thailand (for instance) this video has 6.6 million views and 353,000+ likes:...

Re: Feminism for men

You seem to think that sex is a death trap! Maybe Binocular was possibly saying there is healthy ( kusala ) & unhealthy ( akusala ) sex. Healthy sex being the christian view of one wife, and no sex before marriage? Before western influence in Thailand, men married up to 100 girls at one time. Kings...

Re: Americas new segregationists are on the left.

You talk like that, and you're calling the left wing the racists??? I don't think so!! Talk like what? Yeah, I don't know if you would consider yourself a white supremacist, but you use a lot of the same convoluted arguments that white supremacists have been using for ages. Arguments for what thoug...

Re: Americas new segregationists are on the left.

Like a white supremacist. Where's Brian Ruhe when you need him? He's the equivalent of Godwin's Law here no? When a white person talks about his own history in his own country he is a white supremacist? If my grandfather invents something, and I say my grandfather invented something, am i a suprema...

Re: Americas new segregationists are on the left.

Vannamacchariya: not being possessive of our ‘color’ (vanaa). ‘Vannaa,’ here, has been interpreted in two senses. In one sense, it refers to social caste or class. For example, the ruling class, the religious elite, property owners, and laborers are held to be unequal in status, and the members of ...
