Re: What are the practices to remove/reduce sexual impulses?

What I've found to be highly beneficial is to express the sexual energy. (Warning this is going to sound very new agey but it works) Whenever you get the lustful feeling in your lower half, go and do whatever creative activity it is that you like doing, whether that be drawing, painting, poetry, re...

Re: Lenght of training in a noble disciple

I wouldn't take this commentarial information for granted. Buddha himself never said that you need 100...^n years to attain fruits/paths. He said you can do this in this very life - if you do practise The Path. This is the only thing one should know. Thank you Zom :) may you be well :anjali: Here i...

Re: watching porn can be adultery?

Some persons says porn is not adultery, some says it can be adultery. What if the porn star has a boyfriend/girlfriend while someone watch the porn star's porn video and masturbate? Adultery? I think the bigger question is that the pornstar is having sex with another person. Not that someone is wat...

Re: watching porn can be adultery?

With anything of this nature, what you make of it with your mind within the environment you're in determines the perceived nature of any given thing. EG: My wife is Muslim and therefore doesn't eat pork. It's a cultural religious taboo. I have no belief that what you eat can defile your body. Psych...

Re: give services

Monasteries usually have work days where the lay community comes out to volunteer. They do work such as collecting firewood or planting trees. It does not cost a penny! If you do not live near monastery, you could offer your graphic design services to Buddhist websites such as this one: https://sut...
