Re: Desire for Relationship and for Lack of Relationship

Hi Wri, For me, I actually am in a relationship now. However a relationship does not stop you from your practice (in my opinion) but rather when the time is right and with enough practice I believe that one day my partner may feel the same and walk the path with me. Not giving any opinion or advice ...

effect from not continuing meditation session

Greetings, I was once a very consistent daily-meditator, however the effort does not sustain long enough as I gave up meditation. These past few weeks I am once again repicking up dhammas and continue my meditation sessions. However I found that when I meditate. The following day will be blessful an...

nichiren buddhism

Anyone has any idea what this Buddhism about? Apart from the Mahayana tradition with the idea that everyone had Buddha nature, anything else that differs and not really accepted in Theravada tradition?

Re: Chanting how?

THanks but there are so many suttas there, do I chant all of it everyday? Is there any few as a standard or a must to chant?

Re: Being aware of being aware

I think you fell for this thought of viññāṇa jhana of the 4 arupa jhana. The mind is caught up with the act of cognizance happening over and over again. Its like i am aware of being aware thus awareness exists only and this is the true way of salvation.

Re: It is inevitable ... My thoughts on spiritual practice.

In what I think scott, that the way you perceive the non-self is a way of the so called path. And by crushing on the base of recognizing and let everything flow unlimited, unstoppable, unbounded space. Its like everything is empty and nothing ever exists, however you do mindfully observe things over...

Re: It is inevitable ... My thoughts on spiritual practice.

Scott, I think I understand what you are thinking. Let me write an example and mark me wrong if its not accordance to your realization and understanding. For example, If you are a student, you think of studying for finals. Any why you think of studying for finals? Because by identifying that you nee...

Re: I am no thing

When you realize something deeply, you dont need to keep maintain it because its part of you already. I know buddha taught the 8 fold path, theres no other new sort of path or the path that is somehow hidden within the meaning of 8 fold path. No such thing, buddha teaches us what he knows, he hide n...

How to chant?

I would like to chant in my house everyday, however I'm not always present in the temple and not always there to chant along with the others. So I would like to ask what passage I should chant every morning or every evening. Is there any chanting that needed to be done in order? Hope you can link me...

Stealing the stolen

In society we hear quite often when someone steal/take things from people who in the first place do not own that particular object, is that consider as stealing from that person, who in the first place do not own it? If we return it to the rightful owner it will be as returning/helping, but if by he...

Re: i think i need to simplify my practice

Sometimes you cant push yourself too far till the edge. To grow, we need time. Its useless if you practice everyday meditation yet couldnt realize things in life. Just make it as part of daily routine and slow things down, because even a Buddha before becoming one, went through uncountable time

Śarīra

Do the Theravada context mention anything about Śarīra? I see quite amount of people in Asia do recognize it and think it's some good luck charm to them, some take it as something that protects one from harm and evil spirits. The Pureland Buddhism do mention it as some highly attained monks will hav...

Re: Need help to overcome lust

Hmmm. I do have the same problem. But I found out actually every time when I am feeling tired and sleepy, all these urges coming to attack me. Is it the hindrance that actually come together? Whenever I feel like sloppy and drowsy, immediately the sexual thoughts arises.
