Re: Vegetarians and depression

however reverse causation cannot be ruled out. Probably the most important statement of the whole article. :) And a critique of said article. http://www.theveganrd.com/2017/11/vegetarian-diets-and-depression/ A particularly interesting snippet.

Why do so many of them wear glasses too? :-)
What wrong with wearing glasses? They are Buddhists, not the Khmer Rouge.

Carelessly from the mahayana? see this article: There is enough incidental information in the Tipiñaka to get a good idea about the Buddha's physical appearance. . . . . Although statues of the Buddha always show him wi...

Re: Does kamma determined our birth ?

So it is the way people live that makes them how they are, whether short-lived or long lived, sickly or healthy, ugly or lovely, insignificant or illustrious, poor or rich, in a low class or eminent family, or witless or wise. Sentient beings are the owners of their deeds and heir to their deeds. D...

Re: Insomnia

I've had issues with insomnia my whole life, and while meditation can often help with my anxiety issues, I still have real problems with falling asleep. What time of day do you eat your last meal?

Before he became the Buddha ... at what point in his lifestream was he considered a sotapanna?
He never was a sotapanna. The previous dispensation of Kassapa had died out and Gotama re-discovered the Dhamma. He went straight to fully enlightened arahant and samma-sam-buddha.
