Re: Right Speech: Getting Personal

Re: Asking for Help re: nutriment and sensual desire

This is a good concept. Perhaps you can elaborate on how you do this. Is it specifically watching for hunger as the cue which permits you to eat? So like mentioned above, it follows the same pattern as other hindrances do when experienced: As long as I, me and mine are gone, then meditation goes on...

Re: Asking for Help re: nutriment and sensual desire

Hi, by coincidence and by doing general practice I discovered that if one manages to stop listening to the mind for what is the right diet, and solely listen to what the body says, - then the diet will be balanced according to the activities one picks up. I been practicing a few months with fasting...

Re: Not attaining stream-entry

i don't believe you. That can also be understood as calling me (and Ajahn Amaro) a liar, and its also in my opinion totally unnecessary - its ok to dont belive, but rudeness is making bad kamma .. Im finished with this debate, and be well! Ambalatthika-rahulovada Sutta: Instructions to Rahula at Ma...

Re: Not attaining stream-entry

Re: Brahma viharas in daily life in Theravada cultures

I could go on and on about the benefits and nice progress my practice has developed in since I joined a løcal thai-sangha/wat ban/spiritual "circus", and so on ... but I will not go all that way now.
