Angulimala is a good example of not cutting off bad kamma. he became an Arahant yet still had to meet the results...

Re: Opinion why people should be happy even when searching enli

You should read the Nikaya. Many of your opinions can be found in suttas but with deeper insight, i.e correct the minor mistake. The Buddha stated there are 4 ways: Current practice is unhappiness and in future lead to unhappiness Current practice is unhappiness and in future lead to happiness Curr...

Re: My opinion on how to get everlasting maximum happiness

I'm not saying the Buddha is right or wrong, there is no way to know anything for 100% certain. But the ideals you are sharing with us here, are not of Buddhist belief, and were not taught by the Buddha. They are not part of Theravada. "how to get everlasting maximum happiness" is not what Buddhism...

Re: How bad is killing a mosquito?

I think a possible reason for why you killed the mosquito was attachment to your son, I think the attachment is probably of goodness, as I think you are probably concerned with the suffering of your son, but I still think that judging the life of the mosquito as less valuable then your son's life is...

Re: My opinion on karma and why u pay for what uve done- Rebirth

Hey xtra, I don't mean to be rude. But I saw many of your opinions on the forum, and you speak with great purpose. I know you believe yourself to be enlightened, and that you are helping others, but is it not possible that you have fooled yourself possibly? Your ideas carry with them very profound ...

My opinion on gaining knowledge from someone

I think one must want to be mindful towards that person in reason of wanting to end suffering and he will gain knowledge which desires to end suffering, I think this is rightful knowledge. I think knowledge is not knowledge unless it has of goal to end suffering because otherwise I think it is meani...

opinion of encouraging good will in order for good happiness

Instead of discouraging something, I think you should let someone learn it out of rightfulness, I think this can be done by not encouraging bad will, i Think discouraging bad inappropriately can cause suffering. I think we should always try and find ways of bringing the least suffering possible.

Why I think we should try and be the least ignorant

Because i think the least ignorant we are, the more capable the listener becomes of understanding, therefore I think that something that is incapable of causing ignorance will be immediately understood.

My opinion on correct happiness

Gaining Happiness from wanting happiness, i advise being happy from good things in life and not from bad and finding some way of discouraging another from Happiness delusion, as it is in my opinion, wrong. Try being happy when someone has done something of good will.

Re: How to tell if something is good will/karma or bad will/karm

There is no good or bad kamma, there is just kamma (action/interaction). We do something - it's returns. Like a mirrow. What we will show to mirrow that will reflect on it Good or bad is not a quality of kamma, but modification of perception of this kamma, by our personal experiance, by our ego. Wo...
