The Yugas are as fictitious and metaphorical as the story of Genesis or Valhalla in Norse mythology. Makes as much sense to argue about it as trying to find the relics of Noah's Arc.

Re: Signs of Kali Yuga

This world has cycles of degeneration as well as Golden Ages. It is plain we are now not in a Golden Age as Plato called it. Here is a little list from the Indian tradition, giving the vice-ridden character that is growing in power over many. Kali Yuga began roughly 5000 years ago & is supposed to ...

I have Celtic blood myself and as a teenager spent many hours mapping the Pleiades as an amateur astronomer; it was something of an obsession. Pining for home?
Ancient celts may have one of the most accurate perceptions of the Pleaides and its inhabitants.

How do you choose where you have been?
I think Ren's meaning is that in his prior abode, one of his skills was knowing how to choose subsequent rebirths. (...)

Re: Buddhism and alcohol

Just reading this, makes me wonder if you could get a professional to dig a little deeper. and uncover the underlying cause of your depression? Is there something in your life or life history, that intoxicants help to suppress, or smooth over? If so, I can certainly relate, but in the end I realize...

Re: Accepting that my work is Art

Indeed, I will correct the italian translation and will do my own english translation. About the japanese translation, I will start with making a draft t...

Re: Buddhism and money

I think i must be crazy. I still can't see what is wrong with fancy TV-s, hifi-s, mobiles and other convenience. I may lie in a spiked bed and work till death. I know what is right, but commercialism always overwhelm my mind. I know several verses of dhammapada by heart. It doesn't help me. Any opi...
