Re: What to do - when i have no power to meditate

hi purpleplanet

do you relax yourself before meditation, walking or sitting? try some stretches, have a shower, listen to a dhamma talk, release the pressure and perhaps mindfulness will arise easily.
good luck and stay strong

Re: What to do - when i have no power to meditate

i would like to ask a question regarding the Mahasi method .
is the constant noting in sitting meditation mentally tiring in comparison to other methods of vipassana?

Re: sustained daily mindfulness for jhana

It's for you to strive ardently.
Tathagatas simply point out the way.

Re: Vipassana Skype sessions of out-loud Mahasi style noting

This is a meditation that can be done with others out loud. It is very effective. I'm curious as to how this would work in practice, since presumably people would be noting different things even while doing a similar activity? yeah, indeed. a hall of 100 people noting aloud in a torrent of noise ev...

Re: five precepts and ten Demeritorious Deeds

There are ten demeritorious deeds because eleven is just a really weird number and they couldn't figure out how to make it twelve so they figured that having a beer on a hot summer day was probably the least demeritorious of any of the eleven so they axed it to give a nice round number of ten so yo...

Re: five precepts and ten Demeritorious Deeds

intoxicants have caused me to do all ten demeritous deeds in the past! the drinking of alcohol itself is not the bad deed, it is the cause of the bad action in my opinion

Re: Scripture that is well known to those raised Buddhist

Ven. Bodhi says that in many Theravada countries they chant this in Pali at funerals. He said the Pali then gave a rough translation. This is from one of his Systematic Study of MN presentations " All formations (all conditioned things) are impermanent . Their very nature is to arise and vanish." "...
