Re: My view of anatta. By samsarictravelling/Ai (Dinh) Le.

So, I don't h...

Re: Gluten. How bad is it really?

"'This body, sister, comes into being through food. And yet it is by relying on food that food is to be abandoned.' Thus was it said. And in reference to what was it said?

Re: Dana and debt

The kammic consequence of generosity & giving is wealth. No one has ever nor will ever become poor from giving. If you have debt you should give more. Even if you have just $100 you could give it all away & your debt will not be a bigger burden as a result, wealth will come to you. Through generosi...

Re: Breaking News! Theravada down on Original Buddhism rankings
