Re: On venerables, upasakas, upasikas, and those not like that

How do you feel about being addressed with "upasaka/upasika"? It's pretentious and unnecessary. I also don't like Nyom. Anyone who uses those words in everyday conversation needs to be taken down a peg or two. Just like Ajahns who insist on being called Ajahn. Whenver I come across one of those, in...

"If he recites many teachings, but — heedless man — doesn't do what they say, like a cowherd counting the cattle of others, he has no share in the contemplative life.

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me ...

Re: Love free world because of gender free society !

It's worthy to consider that Noble Attainments can not be gained but simply wishing, even demanting, hot dogs for everyone . And if proclaiming pseudo liberality, making your lifelihood with it, proclaiming "Nibbana here and now", you do not only cut your self off but the way for many, especially fo...
