Re: Theravada in Vietnam

Theravada exists in South VN from monks going to Thailand and Shrilanka. Most of VN is Mahayana from under the influence of China.

Re: Was the Buddha omniscient as to the future

Hi Minh-khong, How does this relate to Theravada, and are these corresponding texts or completely different? Both Mahayana and Theravada traditions have translations from the "commentaries" (the 3rd basket). I couldn't find an English version of this Pali sutta. 13. Apadana — Stories Biographies, i...

At that moment a hawk (śyena) was chasing a pigeon (...

... If Buddha was capable of mentioning very complex things like, 'Abidhamma', then why not just mention the starting and end point of the world, kamma, mind and buddha philosophies, and let the listener decide what to learn and what not to learn? Eventhough someone might say these things are irrel...

Re: 2600-year old buddhist monastery unearthed in afghanistan

A little googling shows that the first news about this was around Nov-2010. It's hard to believe there was no confirmation nor deny on the age of those artifacts from archeologists.
