Re: being nicer on here

It may be useful to define "rude" in the context of a forum. My opinion: a personal insult or unprovoked confrontation. Badgering without a point. Thats about it, everything else is style. Oh, one more thing--posting irrelevant music videos in the middle of an important discussion. Thats pure self ...

Re: being nicer on here

Speak only if it is true, beneficial, and timely / done with respect. There is nothing wrong with being direct and to the point, but it is often used an an excuse for harsh speech.

Re: The site of ancient Kapilavastu

Hi Dhamma friends, Recently I visited the site of Kapilavastu in Tilaurakot (Nepal). In the site there are many elephant images next to the very old Hindu shrine. The Hindu shrine worships three small standing stones. The elephant images are not Ganesha deity; they are just elephants as such, big a...

Re: being nicer on here

If you distrust his motives, then avoid further contact with him. Only the monk himself can know his own motivations, or whether he broke any Vinaya rule, but I cannot think of a valid reason for emailing a love song to a female lay supporter. Mettā is good, but it can easily turn to rāga if one is...

Re: being nicer on here

Dear Bhikkhu Pesala Since You talked about MP3 May I ask you a silly question? What made a monk email a song to me? As a gift? Or just want to share a song with me? Better ask the monk who sent it. I suppose that he knows that you are very fond of listening to songs. There are very few songs that d...

Re: What to do?

These ppl shud at least have the heart to call the animal rescue team to help revive or alleviate the animals suffering if they find it bothersome and if they find themselves more superior without any heart of compassion.

Re: being nicer on here

Now, what would happen during a Dhamma talk (Satsang) if someone drifts by playing his MP3 player, stands at the back listening a bit, and then blurts out a question while the teacher is speaking? Perhaps the disciples or the teacher might be annoyed by this rude interruption, and tell the interlop...

Re: being nicer on here

There's nothing more detrimental to the overall health and longevity of a discussion forum than an unwelcoming atmosphere, caused by a bunch of people that see it as their duty to shoot down and destroy any view that doesn't accord with their own. I've seen it happen to more than one place, and I'd...

Re: Roadkill For Dinner? Montana Wants To Make It Legal Rea

The body of an animal is not wasted if people don't eat it!!! SOMETHING will eat it. I think it's a bit self centered to think that if something does not benefit people then it is wasted. chownah ----------- Dear Chownah, Are you Thai?..Chownah means 'farmer' in Thailand.... And I like your answer ...
