Re: Where to find the Patimokkha in Pali?

Thanks, Bhante Pesala . Thanks Mr. Man . Now I've already got what I needed. Before opening this thread, I searched the forum and didn't find any information about what I was looking for, but I know that it must already exist here. Anyway, we could dedicate this thread to "Recitation of the Patimokk...

Re: Where to find the Patimokkha in Pali?

Very kind of each of you. Thanks! :thumbsup: Although the video shows a Sri Lankan monk reciting the Patimokkha, I see that it is very similar to the way Thai monks recite it except for the pronunciation of some syllables. I'll try to recite it the way Thai monks do. I've had no difficulty memorizin...

Recitation of the Patimokkha

Hi, buddies. Where to find the Patimokkha in Pali? I want to read the complete text that the Thai monks recite in Uposatha Day and, if possible, some audio of a Thai monk reciting it in an average (normal) speed. I have an audio that I recorded when I stayed in a Thai monastery, but the monk recited...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

Guess all our bodies are different. I must be reaping the fruit (in this life) of not injuring living beings (in a previous life). But once I eat that good fruit, it's all gone. So I better go make more of it! "But then there is the case where a woman or man is not one who harms beings with his/her...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

Once, at the end of the afternoon, I was so weak that I didn't know if I would have energy for going to next pindapata. So, I decided to drink a lot of sugary drinks during nan-pana. They helped at the moment, but 20 minutes later, I had a glycemic peak. I went to my kuti to rest a bit and to recov...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

just was worried you wouldn't tell them about your health at all I would never do such a thing. It never crossed my mind. I just think that it may be better to talk about my case in person rather than by email. Maybe, I haven't been so clear. Thanks for your suggestions. Abhayagiri in Northern Cali...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

i might be pushy but : did you send e-mail to a monastery ? and do you have just one monastery in mind or are there others ? Hi, Purple planet. No, you're not pushy. :smile: Answer: No, not yet. I thought about sending, but I still want to ripen the idea. I thought about visiting Amaravati. Would y...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

I guess the many hours without food made your body eat your reserves - which you didn't have! Hi, Martin. Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I do agree. My body languished bit by bit. I also partially agree when you say about the Thai food. Although I had access to high quality food at Wat Pah Nanacha...

Is there any similar case in the suttas? Not quite the same circumstance, but a related case is discussed in MN 65. [/quote] Thanks, Culaavuso.

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

Hi, the Buddha allowed eating between sunrise and until the sun reached their heighest point. Therefore in the Mahasi Sasana Yeitkha in Yangon they offer both a breakfast, usually rice gruel, and lunch. Additionally the Burmese custom allows the monks to eat Sutumadu (an emulsion containing honey, ...

Re: I've tried, I've failed. / eating habit / health

Normally, I'm 1,72cm high and 55 kg which is already low, but it's ok, I feel good. My weight dropped to 48 kg at the end of the first month! Check with your physician, but this might be the problem. You are underweight. That is a BMI of less than 18.6. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/B...

Depending on what your condition actually is (with reference to Mkoll 's question) if you are anaemic, it is possible that some form of supplement, such as folic acid may be permissible. it is one of the Vitamin B complexes.... But that would depend on whether your condition actually has a name, an...
