Recently I've been taking more interest, due to various discussions here and talks I've listened to. With more background about it's re...

Re: Vimuttimagga, Visuddhimagga and the Pa Auk Method

Hi, I practice according to this method.I am familiar with this method through a lot of trial and error. The reason I followed the Pa Auk Method was that I could find no one,not being a proper buddhist at that time,that could describe a strange experience I had with meditation many years ago before...

Re: My thoughts on InsightMyanmar Podcasts

I felt like immersing in three kinds of Dhamma infused movies simultaneously: (1) Adventure (2) Documentary & (3) Romantic. I don't want to spoi...

Re: Poll: What do you consider authoritative?

. Actually, based upon my more-than-a-year experience on DW, the results seem extremely "classical-theravada" when compared to what I expected a few days ago, regarding the outcomes of this poll.
