Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Jataka :roll: misogynists Non-Buddhist SJW adhammic identitarian criterion. How do you view and take those passages? Your beloved guru who you trust named Bhikkhu Buddhadasa probably viewed them as follows: Nowadays, we educate the girls to refuse being women and mothers, and the boys to be unable ...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

Sorry, not false view. Lostitude is correct, there are plenty of women in the US who actually enjoy sex for its own sake. Obviously a "minority" of women; whose bonding instinct has modified. If these women enjoyed sex for its own sex then there would be no "danger" in sensuality & the Buddha would...

Re: the great rebirth debate

in terms of Samsara we're speaking of a serious problem Samsara, i.e, repeatedly attaching to the aggregates as 'self', is a very serious problem. In the 1st noble truth, the Buddha summarised all dukkha as attaching to the aggregates as 'self'. The Buddha said this suffering is to be comprehended....

Re: the great rebirth debate

Although the Buddha never used any word corresponding to "rebirth" in his teachings, he did describe birth as a process following on death again and again as long as the appropriate conditions are present. In other words, even though he didn't use the word "rebirth," his teachings on birth are teac...

everything that can be said has been said
Everything = nothing

Upapajjati =/= reincarnation

Samsara =/= reincarnation

Bhava =/= reincarnation
If anyone says, ‘the eye is self,’ that is not reincarnation.

Re: the great rebirth debate

bhava Bhava is an " asava ". There are these three asava: kāmāsavo, bhavāsavo, avijjāsavo. So neva taṃ abhisaṅkharoti, na abhisañcetayati bhavāya vā vibhavāya vā. So anabhisaṅkharonto anabhisañcetayanto bhavāya vā vibhavāya vā na kiñci loke upādiyati, One neither fabricates nor mentally fashions fo...

Buddha nowhere refutes reincarnation
Keep avoiding the questions put to you. Avoid "upapajjati"; avoid "samsara". Now appear to claim the Buddha taught "reincarnation" of a "soul" or "atta".

Re: eating in one session a day, success stories?

Anyone have any long term success stories to share on eating once a day? I ate one meal for a fairly long period when I lived in a remote monastery; where I walked 90 minutes each morning to get food. Generally, I guess i ate at least 4 cups of brown rice in the morning with the same amount of vege...

Re: How would you interpret this sutta? AN6.68

How I interpret AN 6.68: Fulfillment of Right View ("sammādiṭṭhiṃ paripūressatī" in AN 6.68), the forerunner of the Path (MN 117), is clear knowledge & acceptance of the four noble truths (per SN 45.8); which guides the primary Path practise of abandoning craving. Such Right View requires, as a prer...

Re: Do women have more "dhammic" underlying motives for being horny than men?

From a secular perspective, the above is already normal in most Western countries. It's perfectly normal for young unmarried women to seek sex for the sake of it with no intention of building a lasting relationship with their one-off partner. The false view above was already addressed. What is comm...
