Re: Ordination at Wat Pah Nanachat

It depends where your attachments are. Food, physical comfort, being loved, the need to feel important, getting things your way... many of these things you need to give up either fully or partially. Basically you have to die. You are like a stick that has been in water for many years, you will need...

Re: the great vegetarian debate

On this forum I am very thankful we have a balance of meat eaters and vegetarians contributing, on another forum I browse, the vehement meat eaters run the show, call for the topic to be banned, and the moderators step in and ban the vegetarians from saying anything, so much for freedom of expressi...

Re: What is No-Self?

This back-ground-pure-awareness is limited by one's six bases of consiousness, by 5 khandhas. If it is limited, so it is conditioned, if it is conditioned so it is impermanent, if it is impermanent so it is non-self. Fruit on stream enterer eliminates all self views, and liberates from weight of sel...
