Re: “Enters & Remains”

2600htz: Many believe astral travel implies a full blown out of body experience. The subtle reality is that an astral “projection” is just that - a projection . One projects their astral body out side of there physical body to travel into space (or wherever). The “astral plane”, ie. The question is...

Re: Discouraging and Encouraging Bhikkhuni Ordination

he was ok with that. Yes, females can become arahants. It is obvious. And yes, feminism probably will cause a cascade of events that will deteriorate the dhamma, .. Yes. If the Sangha discourages Bhikkhunis to ordain, it will just cause that some particular females push harder and make more damage....

Re: Discouraging and Encouraging Bhikkhuni Ordination

Hello: I think that when the Buddha accepted that females could ordain, it was like breaking a seal, and he was pretty clear about this. But he was ok with that, he traded longevity of the true dhamma for diversity. And again, he was ok with that. Yes, females can become arahants. And yes, feminism ...

Re: Why SuttaCentral is so Feminist

Theravadins accept 'Garudhamma's but SuttaCentral says it as inauthentic. Many of their site's essays are on gender equality. Even the sutta analysis is biased towards proving gender equality.

Re: Why SuttaCentral is so Feminist

Hello:

I read the topic posts but they were mainly general statements about what "suttacentral is supposed to be".
Could you provide some links about how suttacentral is catering feminist ideologies?.

Re: Finding quiet living conditions as a householder

Hello: As a householder i just moved to a rural area. If you cant do that, there are always quiet neighborhoods in the cities. You can also make an investment in sound isolation for your house or apartment. If you cant do any of those, just make more money so in the future you can solve the problem....

Re: Why does the monks not happy with Buddha's teaching ?
