Re: Feminism for men

Be prepared to also teach them why they keep getting friend-zoned, and walked all over, because their fathers taught them to pander to women, and act weird. What in particular in Biddulph's child-rearing advice would amount to teaching a boy to pander to women and to act weird? You missed the point...

Re: Feminism for men

Be prepared to also teach them why they keep getting friend-zoned, and walked all over, because their fathers taught them to pander to women, and act weird. Then perhaps the fathers need to step up and start doing a better job, as the author in books Manas referred to elucidates. Women want to be t...

Re: Feminism for men

Rather than encouraging men to take up the feminist mantle, how about, let's get men educated about how to father their sons better, so they can better model respectful behaviors towards women and girls - in other words, not remain overgrown boys, but grow into true men of integrity? Here's a great...

Re: Feminism for men

Even if there are a lot of men raped in Prison, the rapists are always men, when's the last time you heard of a woman rapist, not that they don't exist, but seriously!! "Myra Hindley and Ian Brady were responsible for the “Moors murders” occurring in the Manchester area of Britain in the mid 1960’s...

Re: Feminism for men

I am deeply concerned about the various issues and struggles that women and girls face on a daily basis and I want them to achieve emancipation and equality and equity. I don't know if that automatically makes me a feminist, but I should perhaps do more than just feel concern. Perhaps speaking up o...

Bhikkhu Thanissaro actually said that Ajahn Mun sharply criticized the commentaries.

Re: LP Sumedho "consciousness is permanent" - thoughts?

Hello all - As mentioned in a previous post, LP Sumedho visited our local center last month and I was able to shoot video and audio of the event and post it to our YouTube channel. One statement Ven. Sumedho made in the Q&A session surprised me, and I wanted to get input from those more familiar th...

Ajahn Lees mind exploding unfathomable never before heard teaching on consciousness.

http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai/lee/consciousnesses.html In Ajahn Lees teaching on consciousness, he teaches that everything from the worms swimming around in our blood, to the human beings that simply sit next to us, effect our mind. If a dog were to sit next to us, and think a thought, tha...

Re: Wat Dhammakaya

It's amazing how people support a prime minister that literally puts people in prison for disagreeing with him, over a sick old monk that tells his followers to love the people that hate them.

Re: Wat Dhammakaya

It's coming out on Thai television now that the prime minister is not going to leave the temple after they find the abbot, but he is going to stay and seize the temple. A letter was leaked from the army where the prime minister had said he would not leave the temple until it was "reformed". So in ot...

Re: Wat Dhammakaya

Now, please consider the following: The Buddha preached generosity, giving alms and donating requisites. The Buddha didn't go around teaching lay followers to give gold and silver, or having lay followers do this. Generosity and giving are probably very much less than 5% of what the Buddha taught, ...

Re: Wat Dhammakaya

... Okay, but Dhammakaya is still 30-40% about donations (which approximately fits with what you described). Oh, and we're not talking about alms-giving here, we're talking about donating and receiving large sums of money. Furthermore, not only is the whole merit-making issue in Thailand brought to...

Re: Wat Dhammakaya

I'd like to bring attention to one of the men in this thread who's accusations were used to give the Dhammakaya a bad name. Dr Mano. The man who accused the Dhammakaya of stockpiling jewels and weapons inside of their monastery. One of the most famous Dhammakaya critics. The critic that the temple h...
