Re: New and in need of guidance

Thank you so much for your reply! I have on my own, so to speak. I haven’t done it in front of a monk or anything haha. Unfortunately I live in middle northern Indiana... so I don’t have too much selection here. My only options are really an hour drive to Fort Wayne or a two hour drive to Indianapo...

Re: Can someone help me quit smoking ?

Using a sauna regularly has been shown to make it easier to quit smoking. Also, cordyceps mushroom is good for the lungs and oxygen absorbtion

Re: Typing delays

4. Your internet package doesn't include a very fast Mbs (if you can afford, try to order at least 75 Mbs) You can check your speed here: http://www.speedtest.net/ Interesting. I've never had more than 25mbs and it's always been super fast. Streaming multiple devices, downloading things etc. Never ...

Re: Too young to ordain?

Thank you Sarath and James. The monasteries I am considering right now are Ajaan Dick Silaratano's Forest Dhamma Monastery, Ajaan Geoff's Metta Forest Monastery, or Temple Forest Monastery. I plan on going on a retreat over Christmas break at Temple Forest monastery or Forest Dhamma monastery as th...

Re: A Trojan horse: Thanissaro bhikkhus response to Bhikkhu Analayo

Im pretty open to both views in this debate. I don't really have an opinion. I have read the book by Bhikkhu Analayo on the founding story of the Bikkhuni order and he goes into incredible detail in it. https://www.buddhismuskunde.uni-hamburg.de/pdf/4-publikationen/hamburg-buddhist-studies/hamburgu...

Oh boy that's looong. Is there a TLDR? (Too long didn't read) :tongue: Lol I thought the same thing. There's a summary of each of the main points (1-9) at the beginning. Im pretty open to both views in this debate. I don't really have an opinion. Though, thanissaro does make some very good points. ...

A Trojan horse: Thanissaro bhikkhus response to Bhikkhu Analayo

A new article by thanissaro that is a response to the criticism he's received by bhikkhu Analayo and Brahmali for denying the validity of bhikkhuni ordination.

Re: Cold showers

It can become a drug, i.e. taken too far, as in the case of Porfiry Ivanov. Another famous one is Wim Hof . He teaches and does a sort of ice meditation with breathing exercises. He's known as the "ice man." People have died from Wim Hof's method from blacking out and drowning, and his method is, e...

Re: Cold showers

I do this occasionally. Along with using the sauna. Both heat and cold can be very good for the body in moderation. Sauna has been linked to cardiovascular health as well.

Re: Quick question about Ajahn Chah's teachings

There is a hardcover book available from some Ajahn Chah lineage monasteries called something like the Complete Teachings of Ajahn Chah. Those are all the talks I know of translated into English. I think you're right. You can get the book here from Abhayagiri - https://www.abhayagiri.org/books/499-...

Re: What’s your practice routine?

Yeah, now that I think about it, meditating for an hour on Saturday and Sunday could probably work. I've heard many teachers say it's better to meditate, say, ten minutes a day, everyday, than to meditate two hours straight, once a week. My experience would agree with this as well. Consistency over...
