Re: DhammaWheel Public Library Challenge: The Social Harmony Edition

Are there any plans to translate the book into other languages?

Unfortunately our local library would only (or mainly) purchase books in Italian as not many people can read English proficiently here.

Re: Trying to help a friend

I am not an expert, but I would say that sharing with your friend in need the advice and wisdom you found useful in difficult situations, with the intention of helping your friend, is a very positive thing. Your friend can later go and find out by herself the teachings if she wishes to do so. I hope...

Re: I am stuck in my meditation practice. Any suggestions?

Thank you all for your kind suggestions. I will try to put them into practice in my daily life until I have time to learn from an experienced teacher. Mindfulness in daily life alone, or studying the Eightfold Path, are already big challenges for me, so I think I'll practice these two for now. Thank...

Re: Some towns in France ban burkinis

Most people who support the bans that have been interviewed on the streets by the media say they do so because they see the burkini as a regression in terms of women's rights, many calling it "medieval" in the pejorative sense. Has anyone asked Muslim women what they think? :thinking: Sadly women a...

Re: Italian Language | Risorse in italiano

Rieccomi! :D Purtroppo non ho conoscenze per dire se le traduzioni sono fedeli e/o affidabili. Ho contattato la persona che tiene il sito, il quale mi ha confermato che traduce i testi dall'inglese o dal francese. Complimenti comunque per il lavoro, ma purtroppo questo rende i testi poco affidabili...

Earthquake near Rieti, Italy, where Santacittarama is

I am opening this topic to send all my good thoughts to Santacittarama monks and laypeople, as well as to all the people living in the area, after a magnituto 6.2 earthquake destroyed Amatrice and other nearby towns. :weep:

I hope the people there are safe and the Monastery is OK.

Re: The Dhamma Wheel Meditation Challenge

A little update on my progress. At the moment my morning routine includes: walking with my dog and practising either mindfulness or Metta, then getting home and following this guided meditation (especially Breath Meditation with Instructions for Leaving Meditation). Thanks to this, I can sit for (al...

Re: Members Bios - please contribute yours

For those that don't want to list too much detail about your bio, how about 6 words to describe yourself or your life? It could be personality traits, accomplishments, interests, or something else.
