Re: Remembrance of past lives

never mind me.I'm just cleaning this tea spill. :tongue: Do you recollect dying in your previous life? “I’ve” also had some vivid spiritual experiences.

Although these news must be tough to hear, you may take solace in that he looked very peaceful in death. The ceremony was beau...

Re: Monastics and suicide

Re: Monastics and suicide

I’m asking whether the bhante was confused with his practice, and had maybe fallen into a pitfall? There's one person to ask this, but he's not here anymore. Yes thepea you will have to ask bhante samahita that.none of us can answer why he took his own life.i am personally feeling really down these...

Re: Monastics and suicide

I'm not criticizing Bhante ,I am discussing how it has affected me.it actually hits very close to home and I'm struggling to pick up the pieces. I'm not casually being an arm chair critic.This is a time for self reflection i am not disparaging bhante in any way. We are all human and that enough for...

Re: Monastics and suicide

Re: Monastics and suicide

The whole thing does not sit well with me based on his lifelong dedication to practice as you suggest. I’m not trying to be disrespectful, and I’m taking a lot of heat from this thread. I was hoping for some more details regarding these possibilities to shed some light on this. It would seem dising...
