Oh i am pretty sure this is a fact.
I'm pretty sure what I wrote is also fact, namely, the ways of Dhamma are not the same as the ways of the world (Mara).

Re: Armenian PM Sarkisian Resigns, Thousands Celebrate

Poverty and slavery is not a mark of rightness for sure Sounds like an exaggeration to me. Also, lots of poverty in the USA. https://poverty.ucdavis.edu/faq/what-current-poverty-rate-united-states https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/made-by-history/wp/2017/12/21/extreme-poverty-returns-to-america/?...

there are arranged marriages, love-less marriages, open relationships, not to mention people getting off on seeing their partner with others.
just saying...
Maybe. But the ways of the world are not exactly the ways of Dhamma. AN 4.55. AN 4.53

Re: Armenian PM Sarkisian Resigns, Thousands Celebrate

If everything sounds so similar to you, consider this one little fact: Thousands of Russians migrate to US every year (~250.000 Russians are playing annual "Green Card" lottery for US citizenship). No americans migrate to Russia every year 8-) So greed is the mark of what is right & true? :roll: Th...

Re: Armenian PM Sarkisian Resigns, Thousands Celebrate

Oh yeah Saudi Arabia and N. Korea have changes so much they are almost unregnizable - I hear they are walking around in bikinis now :) I recall the Dhammapada suggests to focus on one's own faults.

Re: Which view on DO resonates with you the most?

Phusanti phassā upadhiṃ paṭicca, Nirūpadhiṃ kena phuseyyum phassā. Contacts make contact, dependent on acquisition. Where there is no acquisition, what would contacts contact? Udāna 2.4 The translation above appears questionable because it contradicts many core suttas (MN 38; MN 148; Iti 44; etc). ...

if you cheat on your wife... but in itself is not sexual misconduct.
Why? Because of how you personally decide to read one passage in the suttas but ignore other passages that pertain to the same subject?

Re: Vinnanam Anidassanam. General Theravada Version.

I've no idea what you are talking about but i edited it a bit. The term 'nama-rupa' comes from Brahmanism, before the Buddha. It literally means 'naming-forms'. Buddha seemed to hijack the term & redefine it as: ' feeling, perception, intention, contact, attention and form composed of earth, wind, ...

Re: Vinnanam Anidassanam. General Theravada Version.

As i understand Zom's position The Luminous consciousness is like mundane consciousness but without delusion and this is what makes it luminous all around, like a jhanic state basically. It is not destroyed until the breakup of the body. Luminous mind can be defiled. Luminous mind does not mean def...

Re: Vinnanam Anidassanam. General Theravada Version.

Vinnanam Anidassanam can be any kind of 6-class consciousness, which is devoid of greed, hatred, and delusion. Sorry. But the suttas do not say this. :roll: It does not matter how many times the above is continually posted on this forum. The suttas never ever ever never define vinnanam anidassanam ...

Re: Which view on DO resonates with you the most?

Are you trying to say there are 2 sets of 5 aggregates (one called clinging aggregates one called non-clinging aggregates), with different DO applying to each individual set ? SN 22.48 and end of MN 28 . DO appears not to apply to the non-clinging aggregates. DO is called "the wrong path" ( SN 12.3...

Ye, very nice. Our country will be the last prolly. Too many tv-zombified people. When they all die out, young generation will do the change. What's wrong with your country?

i won't waste more time talking to you i think i've proven already that several wives was a standard practice back then, has been since and it also is nowadays. If the pornographic mind is not abandoned & compassion for women is not developed, samadhi will be impossible. Without compassion, no amou...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

fake sutta? I never posted in ancient times some men did not have many wives. However, in an attempt to depart from the lack of empathy for women on this thread which hinders entry into the path, i merely asked did any devout stream-entry lay followers of the Buddha have many wives? Now the sutta y...
