Re: Harry, Meghan and my Papañca

By the way, it's obvious that everyone suffer as long as they're still unenlightened people, but it's also obvious that the intensity of suffering those royals have to face day in and day out is nothing compared to the kind their fellow human beings are going thru. And like I've said, even Devas su...

Prince Harry was in the British Army for about 10 years: and Prince William was a Royal Air Force helicopter rescue pilot for a few years. Of course they had to to generate enough positive public PR for the justification of maintaining a monarchy in 21st century. Have they ever carried out any miss...

Re: If mind = brain

Please excuse my interruption (and lack of interest in Krishnamurti) - but as this is a General Theravada Discussion forum wouldn't all the Krishnamurti references be better placed in the existing topic in the Connections to Other Paths forum ? https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=31576&p=46...

Re: Harry, Meghan and my Papañca

You don't even live in the UK, No_Mind, ..... so why on earth are you even reading this gossip from a fashion magazine and speculating wildly about it too? I live in the UK myself and while I wish the royal family well, I can't say that I'm particularly interested in their activities in general. Let...

Re: is birth control the same as getting an abortion

One friend of mine whom has the third eye said if we uses contraception or any other form of birth control , the possible "child to be" , can't find a place or way to take birth thus "stuck" in the misery realm for very long time . Maybe this happens too... https://www.buddhismwithoutboundaries.com...
