Re: If I reborn, what is common thinng I find in next life?

When you are reborn, you will experience both good kamma and bad kamma through your sense doors.

Re: London murder rate higher than NYC?

Re: London murder rate higher than NYC?

Well like I said before what they need is more CCTV and higher sentences. They also need more education for the youth on how harmful crime is. Additionally they need programs to educate and re-assimilate criminals more after prison. Like all nations, England - and the whole UK - need to take a page...

Re: Paccekabuddhas ... can't teach? or don't teach?

Are there any Pali canonical sources which address this topic? No, you need to go to the commentaries. This is from Bhikkhu Bodhi's translation of the Suttanipāta Atthakathā. I've added the Pali: Buddhā sayañca bujjhanti, pare ca bodhenti. Paccekabuddhā sayameva bujjhanti, na pare bodhenti. Buddhas...
