Re: 99.9% of Theravada is primitive, false

I read somewhere on the internet that almost all buddhism is false. That a tiny vangaurd of intellectual elites and their followers within the past 40 have revived the True Esoteric message of the Buddha. Discuss. :popcorn: True and false are not relevant quantifiers for Buddhism. https://dhammawik...

Re: Suicide: "Men heal sitting side by side with each other"

Anyway, the topic of this thread is semi-legal at best, and there is no hope to actually discuss it in proper depth without venturing into the illegal or otherwise problematic. Well, I personally have always been reclusive since I became a Buddhist therefore I don’t have any compelling experience o...

Re: Suicide: "Men heal sitting side by side with each other"

From my own limited observations, men tend to think about their problems more objectively, i.e to analyze how legitimate their feelings are, so how they feel is not the center of their attention but how justified/rational that feeling is. Women on the other hand, tend to approach their problems mor...

Re: Why do we cover up?

Wisely reflecting, I use the robe:
Only to ward off cold,
To ward off heat,
To ward off the touch of flies, mosquitoes, wind, burning and creeping things,

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

And yes, there is anti-feminism in the Dhamma, for example the suttas Anuruddha sutta and Uggaha Sutta: Hi budo It is budo who is attributing anti-feminism to the Dhamma. Do you think the Buddha taught with an anti-feminist intention? Nonsense question. The Dhamma is orthogonal to ideology. Certain...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Greetings, So what is the point of discussion or is the OP just intended to be a list? That's probably a question best put to the OP, but list/resource topics are nothing new. Metta, Paul. :) Perhaps someone from the moderation team could have the op clarify what the thread is actually about

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Greetings Mike, If this topic is supposed to be about the Dhamma, I think that it would have been much better to use a thread title like: "Extracts from suttas and jataka tales that I imagine that some people whose views I disagree with might have difficulty accepting." Or "Sutta teachings that cou...
