Re: Can a sotāpanna committ suicide?

Suicide is not same as killing and this can be inferred from these discourses; Thanks for clarifying :anjali: To add to the topic, i think there is no conditions in Sottapana mind to suicide because he knows suffering as it is, he dont see it as : "i am suffer", but "there is suffering", and it wou...

Re: What the fruit of once-retourner and non-retourner are feels like?

One part of the response is found, i think: If one is born in higher fine material and immaterial realms then why does the dhamma encourage monks to do jhanas up to immaterial jhanas which would cause one to miss the Sasanas? Because with the right view attaining jhana will result either in non-retu...

How did capitalism exist during the time of the Buddha?

Most historians place the birth of capitalism in North West Europe in the 16th Century.
Yes, use of this term is anachronic, but what i think about is: Do you think that Dhamma is anti-capitalistic and ecologist by nature?

Re: Why do we have resentment towards the people are very close to us?

I want to build new room im my house, but the law forbit it - i feel anger. I want listen to music at 3am, but neighbors call the pol...

Thanks !

Re: Why do we have resentment towards the people are very close to us?

Good point. Can you give some examples? For exemple when someone have love and confidence in his partner, and then he see that this person is cheating on him. It bring a lot of suffering and anger, like if some one cut off a part of one's body. But if this person have no confidance in his partner a...

Re: Why do we have resentment towards the people are very close to us?

Because our mind is the most attached to these peoples, there is a lot of expectations and dependence. More love there is, more ill will there can be.
