But seeing a fault as a fault is a growth in the Noble Ones' discipline. Acknowledge, try not to do it again, and move on. But remorse i...

Re: I've had a few...but then again...too few to mention...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

ok, Satta(beings) come infatuated with aggregates, love(sārajjitatta) is a requisite condition.
