Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Without proper arguments, you are the one who is making fool of yourself constantly showing your dislike towards what Lal provided here. And when "proper arguments" are offered —as they they have repeatedly been, both here and at Sutta Central— you make a fool of yourself by responding with ill-tem...

They wouldn't.
Yeah, I misread your post and thought you wanted a forum to commune with devāḥ in.

Re: Devas

Greetings, I mean a place for us to placate the assembly of devas. Surely this is something that the suttas condone as wholesome? Create a topic in the Shrine Room then? :shrug: Metta, Paul. :) Paul.... Do you really think the devas would appreciate that? Well, shrines are how you generally venerat...

Re: What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles?

Which part of the original teachings, whatever they might be, are outdated or impractical in our current times? For one, the language. No one speaks Pāli natively at present, and those best suited to intuit the Pāli language from a native perspective are generally all Hindu or Muslim. The very tran...

Re: What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles?

What was the reason behind the development of new buddhist vehicles? Times change. The ascetic Gautama doesn't. He is gone. Times change, the dispensation much change to adapt to them. It's up to the individual to decide if X or Y teaching is that which is the law of nature, that which is a regular...

We agree, but in different ways. But regardless of the ways we differ, we both agree that that post is indicative of what is going on in the world.

Here's that comment. You have a racist forum. Alfa's post calling out this racist post here: https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=33464#p499102 Was deleted by retrofuturist. All for standing up to racism. And this racist post is still there. Clearly the content in my thread on Christian Wisd...

Re: Christian Wisdom

An entire subforum was closed to prevent chatter like this from clogging up the forum.

Discussions either pro or anti feminist make me yawn.

What inspired this tangent?

Christian Wisdom

I stole this from Iohannes on OC.net "Christians should judge no one. Neither an open harlot, nor sinners, but should look upon everyone with simplicity and a pure eye. Purity of heart consists in seeing a sinful and weak man and having compassion on him and being merciful." ~ Abba Makarios the Grea...
