Re: drugs and meditation

As far as I know, coffee drinking arose during the early modern period so I doubt Christian monks were drinking coffee. In Ethiopia there is the story of how coffee was discovered.

I left in 1980...

Re: 50th Anniversary of Nanavira's sotapatti

i don't think it is entirely off topoc but maybe it would be more open (not restricted to Nanavira) if a new thread was started. I don't think any of the levels would be blameworthy if they opted (on an individual basis, depending on circumstances) for euthanasia, if they are more of a hinderance t...

I have heard conflicting opinions.
