Re: buying/using gun

Answered my own question. In the Vinaya, Suttavibhanga, the 92 pacittiya (rules entailing confession), number 74 states “Non-offenses. According to the Vibhaṅga, there is no offense for a bhikkhu who, trapped in a difficult situation, gives a blow “desiring freedom.” The Commentary’s discussion of t...

Bhante isn't there somewhere in the Vinaya that says a monk can fight off a would be attacker if need be?

Re: In your view, understanding, Parinibbana is:

Hi DNS, To accompany the great Nibbana thread, to see where DW posters are on this topic. You can pick up to 3 choices, if you like, since some are similar.

Re: Early suttas that says sotapanna attained nibbana
