Is Obama risking a nuclear war?

By throwing a rant against Russia?

Obama god bless him is now part of history, what gives him the right to go crazy, eg. Israel vote, Russian diplomats. Is this irreposnsable to say the least?

Re: Sex positive movement

The first sex positive movement was created by vatsyayana a Hindu sage around 2A.D. It is linked with tantrhism and vstsayana meant that sex should be applied with artha Darma to say meaningfully and phenomenally. According to his philosophy sex can be used to achieve a spiritual status by the acti...

Re: Trump vs. Bush

Assuming this is about George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump, Sr. then my take is: GW Bush took us to war in Afghanistan and Iraq, he ran up a massive debt, he caused the global economic crisis / recession, massive unemployment, torture of prisoners of war . . . GW Bush could even be said to be the ca...

Re: Sex positive movement

In other words he doesn't really believe in Buddhism but engages in communist rabble rousing under the guise of "Buddhism." Oh? It's hard to imagine a rabble being very much roused by Prof. Pepper's cerebral blend of Marx according to Althusser, Freud according to Lacan, and the grace-based Buddhis...

Re: What is the future of Dhamma Wheel

We have seen many Dhamma discussion groups and websites shut down after some time. This can be a great loss to the Dhamma community. Closure of access to insight is a good example.
