Re: I guess I better change my blue-colored avatar IF IT IS TRUE (?).

Hi everyone. I did a new writing called 'How To Keep One’s Eyes In Healthy Condition' on a word processing program, but don't know how to repost it at Dhamma Wheel as html format (am not so great with computers) so that it comes as text mainly when I paste it here, so I then posted it at my 'Samsari...

Re: Worldly success & Dhamma practice

You (Saengnapha) said: Both the world and your self are creations of your own making. Conceptions. You continue to create them in each moment. What kind of renouncing will stop that? None that you would volitionally make. Can you comprehend my logic? I answer: If buddhist monkhood did not help to a...

Re: How do I start out in the Theravada tradition?

Hello, I've been practicing Zen meditation for a few years and want to check out the Theravada tradition, but I don't really know where to start. I see that there's a Theravada monastery near me, but it doesn't have any regular meeting times for lay practitioners like the Zen centers I'm used to. I...

Re: "Rain soddens what's covered..."

Rain soddens what's covered & doesn't sodden what's exposed. So open up what's covered up, so that it won't get soddened by the rain. Sodden — adj — saturated, especially with water; soaked through Can somebody explain to me the meaning of this quote? How can rain not saturate that which is covered...

Re: Worldly success & Dhamma practice

[ You just have to choose: Do you want to give up this world, or do you want to live in it? The more you want to give up this world, the more you would give up money, I guess? If you are unsure, I think that means you are still layman-minded (like me). So just enjoy the world, until you can give it...

Re: Did Buddha say that we have innate basic gooddness?

According to the following vide it appears that we have innate basic goodness? I do not think that Buddha said this. https://youtu.be/d3-frnEwlh0?t=699 I read somewhere in the past: In Mahayana, they have the Buddha Nature which, according to Mahayana, we all possess, so that means we are already i...

Re: Worldly success & Dhamma practice

Hello friends, Today I want to ask whether, and to what degree, one can and ought to have worldly success (such as making much of school and work) and still practice Dhamma. I am now in my mid 30s and am a student at the local community college. I tend to be very intelligent with academia and capab...

Re: The spirit of five precepts

Hi all, Happy New Year 2018!! Just a simple question about five precepts. The first precept tells us to refrain from killing living beings. If everyone in a city practices five precepts, no one will kill animals, everyone will become vegetarian. Is it true the spirit Buddha wants us to develop is v...
