Re: Dhammayut Thai Temples Friendly to Phenomenonlogical Approach?

Like others have said, rather than finding a place that teaches in the same way as nanavira, I would suggest finding a place that allows ample time for meditation and isolation, if you go to Thailand. I would imagine there are many small monasteries with few visitors. As far as the monastery you're ...

It is. Roughly a decade ago I ordered a good many tomes from the site in question... including the volume you speak of.

Metta,
Paul. :)
Are there any you recall that you would suggest?

Re: Where to buy "Clearing the Path"?

Greetings, Does anyone know where I can get a physical copy of Nanavira's clearing the path, particularly in the US? I currently have notes on dhamma, but I've heard the letters are useful to make sense of the notes. I would gift my current "notes" if I was able to buy the collection. You can get L...

Re: I'm working on building a start page with quotes from the Buddha and would appreciate suggestions/feedback.

Why don't you just go to the original texts themselves and copy out what you like? You still have a bunch I'd say aren't genuine quotes. When was the last time you checked? They are all verified sutta/dhammapada quotes now, unless I somehow forgot to push it live. Though, you may disagree with some...

Re: Metta is only easy when I'm alone.

Try to think of metta as not only that good feeling you get when you're actively practising it on the cushion, but how you interact with others. Express metta through your actions. You can be annoyed with someone but still be kind and helpful.

Kind of a related project, here is a WordPress plugin that can be used to add a random Dhammapada quote to a web page. https://wordpress.org/plugins/real-buddha-quotes/ The code of the plugin is GPL licence, but the actual Dhammapada verses are still under copyright. But you probabaly have the codi...

Hey everyone, I'm working on making a start/new tab page with quotes from the Buddha and would appreciate any feedback.

dhamma audiobooks

Does anyone know of any places to listen to free dhamma audio books? I know of the forest dhamma website already, along with the middle length discourses being on audible. I also recently found a couple on the parayati website. Just wondering if anyone might know of any that I'm not aware of. Thanks!

Re: Is Buddhism Left or Right leaning?

You might has well have asked "Are you left or right leaning?", Because that's all the responses are.
