Updated Shrine

Greetings all, Here's my updated shrine. I have a new rupa, which is Thai. The other one I figured out was Amitabha Buddha, and that didn't sit right with me. And, I have a new candle holder and flowers. I still need to get a new stand for the rupa, but it's pretty much done. Just one question, is a...

Re: Thailand Buddhist Flag

I received my flag in the mail the other day from Thailand. It got here pretty quickly. It's hanging up above my bookshelf where I have all my Dhamma books. I like it! :twothumbsup:

Greetings all, I re-found the Web site of the Vipassana meditation group within driving distance of where I live. I had known about the group for awhile now, but since it was just meditation, and not a wat, I didn't pay much attention. Now, I notice they have Bhante Rahula from Sri Lanka. I have con...

Re: Three Things a Buddha Cannot Do?

Thanks for that, Kenshou. I don't know where to even search for things like this. I tried Yahoo!, but to no avail. I did a search for "adhamma" on Google Saffron, and it didn't really get me what I wanted. So, like I said, I don't know where to really look, other than ask on here.

Re: Cambodia

Oh, really? Thanks for the heads up alan. Quite a shame, in my opinion. And, to everyone, I apologize about that first post I made in reply to pilgrim. I had been reading about the Communists messing with things in Southeast Asia, plus I know what they've done to Tibet, and it irks me just a teeny t...

Re: Cambodia

Is this site still operational as far as being able to donate to the cause? I would like to help out the Education and Training program.

Re: Cambodia

Yes, that damn Communism...Sorry. But that stuff seems to do nothing but cause death. And, yes, what I just said was tinged with a bit of attitude. I know it's not right to be like that about such things. I'm only beginning on this path, so I have a lot of work to do. It looks, to me, like Communism...

Three Things a Buddha Cannot Do?

Greetings all,

I was reading on BuddhaNet about the differences between Buddhism and other world religions. It mentioned there are three things a Buddha cannot do, but did not elaborate. What are these three things?

Re: Do you believe in rebirth?

Yes, I believe in rebirth. Coupled with kamma, to me, it's a fact. I've held similar beliefs when I was a Hindu, and that was for around six years. So, I would definitely say "yes".

Thanks guys. I didn't know BPS had a translation. I was only familiar with the PTS one. I'll have a look at the links.
