Re: Gradual practice

Dear Zom,

As you know in Russia we say that : one don't preclude another (одно другому не мешает). For exemple my sila practice is not deminished by my practice of formal meditation, moderation in eating etc. Or if I try to guard my senses I will week my bodily or mental conduct ? What do you think ?

Re: Europe monastery (forest monk) as good as in asian?

Re: Self in Animanls and Humans

I think it depends on social organisation of being. IMO social beings have more conditions to develop self-view.

Re: Do these group of demi god exists ?

"Realy" - i dont think so... But "Conditionaly" - yes, quite sure

Its all just about feeling, perception, mental formations, consciousness... There is some animals who percive this world like a sound, others like a adour, so iam sure there is beings which being is different from ours

Re: Ordination experience in Wat Phra Dhammakaya.

Dhammakaya is a good place to ordain?
I heared that this Wat is some kind of a sect with doubtful views on Dhamma like a self etc... It is true?
