Re: pativiratō hōti - interesting translation from by puredhamma.net

Hi Justin, I am dead against kiling mice from any means as it leads against the 1st precept. But I have found because of this nature of mine the others at my home are suffering from various atrocities of mice. The only method of catching them was getting them trapped in a cage and delivering them fa...

Re: Is the term "cessation of greed, hatred & delusion" in the suttas?
