Re: Monastics and suicide

I don't think it is proper and wise to let a beginner or not acquire enough in understanding the dhamma to start doing meditation .

Re: Coma , vegetative state and death .

Most likely the Buddha didn’t mention this as it is not conducive to the path. Well , Buddha never mentioned a whole lot of things . But if the Buddha never say brain death is death then should one treat it as non death ? Did Buddha allows LGBTQIA to ordain ? Did the Buddha says male and female mon...

The 8-fold path is a cure to mental disorders, body can suffer and deteriorate but mind is clean and pure. You could capture an arahant and force alcohol into their system, the body would suffer the effects but mind would be pure and clean. Christ was tortured to death and mind kept clean and pure....

But, on rare occasions whenever I happen to practice dhamma I find myself in less hypothetical situation, directly "wrestling" with the real ones. :juggling:

Re: Namarupa as name & form or mentality & materiality ?

I understand 2. Rupa as mataeriality but I do not understnd 1. Rupa as visible form....seems like it should be 1. Rupa as visual object (as shown in the definition given below). Nyanatiloka's dictionary says "rūpa: (1) corporeality (s. khandha 1); (2) visual object (s. āyatana); (3) fine-material (...

Re: 8 Precepts

Your case of backache is a different matter . Are we not talking about the precept not indulge in enjoying sleeping and how the comfy , high and large bed would affect the training ?

Self-view here involves the assumption of "my mind, my thoughts, my feelings" or assumptions like "I am thinking" and "I am having thoughts".
So , where and when or how along the process do you think the " I am " get into the picture ?
