Re: Arahants

i'd like to tell you all one thing, if you have not attained a fruition, you cannot decide other fruitions. please be careful when you talk(FOOLISH). results of such things can be worst. Supernormal powers is a different thing.kindly note that this monk does not say that he's an arahat in his seromn...

Re: Arahants

dont judge by external appearances, the mind is the important thing. when you speak your mind follows that speech. but an enlighted one may do or say things which his mind doesn't follow. because it adheres to DHAMMA and VINAYA. his speech may appear to be rough and careless. his actions may seem co...

Re: Non Violence, self defence and defence of others

WELL SAID Sarath. i like your comment. there's only 1 weapon for the self defence. thats the VIRTUE(SILA). only that can protect you if you dont have any BAD KAMMA which give you results at that time.

Re: intention

BUDDHA TAUGHT NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH to realize NIBBANA. when you act to reduce thanha/greediness/anger, you mind becomes pure and calm. then you will become a kindful person. you don need to look for a compassion again. if you have SAMMA SANKAPPA(getting rid of thanha), SAMMA KAMMANTHA9SILA)/SAMMA VA...

Re: The Buddhist catechism by H.Olcott

please rememebr about 7 percepts.(not 5). buddhism is a religion of the MIND. you are correct, even a christian can become buddhist by going refuge on TRIPLE GEM and developing on eightfold path. but the main thing is SAMMA DHITTI(4 noble truths). this should be in a buddhist.
