Re: FYI: Monks DO NOT get a free visa when entering Sri Lanka

A western monks told me also : if you move monastery to monastery (very usual in Sri Lanka), westerner monks will must have a kind of introduction letter.

Re: J.Krishnamurti discussion.

You have to do something : accept to live in an another way of mind. But people does not want because there is insecurity. K. Say : see the world. See your mind. And see the relationship. Your mind is just a f*** war Everytime. Do you want this war do you like it? So make change happen. How change? ...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

Maybe the problem are the limitless of words but :
- going in nibbana is a escape to suffering. A escape from a fear (suffering) is just an another fear.

I am bit out the topic :/

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

But I will repeat myself a bit : how can you overtake the sadness if you can not feel it. Maybe by following the path. But it is not understanding. It is removing wood for the desire fire. But you become dry as dust. You not suffer anymore but you are not living neither. And if human are here, and ...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

What I say. If we want a perfect wisdom, having a Monk's life work against this perfect wisdom. I would say that Monastic life is natural progression. More wisdom = more contentment = less desires = less entanglement = less relationships = less possessions = less responsibilities = less worry = mor...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

Chap 16 dhammapada I say on my point of view and from my experience : what lay people call love is not love. The truth love must be without I. Affection : you need a I to feel this affection. Not sad will come. But I will repeat myself a bit : how can you overtake the sadness if you can not feel it....

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

First part : On my point of view. In Monk's life. What I see : corrupt monk until monk who really want nibbana and understanding. The best monk I found lived alone in the jungle. No electricity. But I get a phone...for dhamma he said. After 3 days (vinaya rules), he asked me to share the app I have ...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

But if there is no liking, that mean we are in state where house holder pleasure was replaced by wisdom? So you still have monks who still suffering about things but they can not see the true because they can not practise it. If you are craving to make love, that can become very huge craving. Very h...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

So the deep question I ask is : the rules of dhamma create suffering. I see it clearly, as a upasaka here, I must not for exemple eat after midday. If I eat more, I will fell not good in my stomach. If I eat reasonable I will have hungry before sleep. My exemple is not very very accurate. But two t...

Re: Making love or not making love : restraint senses or stop idenfication

When a person notices something it is explored for association with impermanent pleasure... Dhamma Friend. Say I am a billionaire. Surely, I can use my money to make my pleasure more permanent. For example, instead of having one wife to engage in sexual pleasures with, I can have many wives or many...

I just say can we speak without personal attack. Cause of conflict sutta from numerical discourse.
