Re: Not wanting to be off-topic elsewhere

Oh, I see, I am a troll because I disagree. Please forgive me for pointing out that Buddhism is not special, it has its extraordinary beliefs and its violent followers just like any religion. How hard can it be for yal to understand this simple fact? I will continue on my Buddhist path as before* bu...

Re: shouldnt convince people to meditate ?

I talked to a monk who follows Ven. Ajaan Tong Sirimangal and he told me not to teach and not to convince people to meditate i can understand why not to try to teach people - cause i might not know how to - but why not to convince my family to meditate ? is it because its not their karma or somethi...

Re: Not wanting to be off-topic elsewhere

No, I don't agree with you (Jay1). I agree with LY that those superstitious things are essential in many other religions, not Buddhism. The Dhamma is about suffering and the way out of suffering. Sure. I have other things I need to do right now and so little time. So let's settle on disagreeing on ...

Re: Mara

If he is a real being (and yes, it is always a he -- male being), then yes, he can get enlightened. According to the story / mythology, it is an "office holder" position, not a permanent being. Someone just as deluded in desire and ego will come along to take his place. All beings in all realms are...

Mara

Re: Pope Benedict XVI Says He Will Resign

The website is biased. The website doesn't exist to give a comprehensive overview of all events in the Bible. It simply showcases, quite effectively, I might add, the depths of cruelty to which Jehovah sinks to on multiple occasions. No amount of positives on the other side could give pardon. It sh...

As I have mentioned many times before, the disrespect of other faiths in this website is disturbing. I am not a Catholic, by the way. Edit: If I weren't convinced of Buddhism before I cam to this site, I would've never become a Buddhist because I would've said: "See, (insert real name), they are no...
