Re: The effect of our deed

Well, that wrong view is common enough to warrant it's own term. Pubbekata-hetu-diṭṭhi.
It means the view that everything that happens is a result of kamma. There are things that happens because of gravity, for example.

Re: Religion Textbook with bad Dhammapada translation

As a general rule of thumb, almost all DHP translation from a person called Thomas is a bad Translation.

Re: Questions from the Shameful Bhikkhu

Sometimes I feel sympathy for bhikkhus from Thailand. One time a monk give me envelopes containing a large amount of money for a Chao Khun. Apparently all bhikkhus receive monthly allowance. And handling money become so common, I even see a laywoman throw money casually for a monk. Bhante, if you wa...

Re: The 7th Global Conference on Buddhism (GCB) "Buddhist SOLUT

Well, it's good to see mandatory "donation", especially when the seat price is above average monthly wage.

Re: Differences Hinayana & Theravada Buddhism

Actually Buddha use the word "hīno" when refering to the two extreme path. ‘‘dveme, bhikkhave, antā pabbajitena na sevitabbā. Katame dve?

Re: Why are eunuchs not allowed to be ordained?

I wanted to ask about circumcision, vasectomy or other modification to male genital and the possibility of ordination.
I already know about 5 kinds of pandaka, but seeing this thread makes me wonder, is there any reference about male genital modification and prohibition form being ordained?

Re: Is there a Sangha in the deva realms?

There are Ariya Sangha on deva realms, but they are not ordained.
Ordination can only be given to human being. There is a reason why a person being ordinated called "naga" :)
On ordination, a person is asked if he/she is a human being.
