We are all brothers and sisters in this Dhamma. We shouldn't watch what others do, we should bet...

Re: What is element ?

I don't know, iam not a scholar ^^ Just suggest my point of view ;) As they say in artistic sphere : "perfection is while there is nothing more to suppress" in other words "perfection is simplicity".

Re: What is element ?

Many Great Masters say ... an element is a basic quality of mind ? Which great masters? :shrug: If 'elements' were qualities of mind then there would be millions of different subjective mind produced elements. I add some precisions into the post that can answer your question (about just basic quali...

Re: Which army of Mara are you fighting right now?

Good pool Sarath :) I voted for craving (as cause of dukkha), sensual pleasures and discontent. I'am quite surprised that nobody voted for sensual pleasure... It seems like peoples are not even aware of their dukkha for sensuality... I think that this absense of votes for 'sensual sphere' mean that ...

Re: Moha, lobha & dosa and work

Since becoming a Buddhist, I see anicca, dukkha, anatta in all aspects of daily life & I see the futility in most activities which I used to take such pleasure in, such as yearning for the latest gadgets or toys, games, shows, shopping, eating out, etc., things which I don't partake of much anymore...

Re: It is not possible to attain Sotapanna state unless you have practiced Satipathana once at least?

Thank you Robert. Yes. It appears you can practice Vipassana with any Kaya sankhara. Can a person practice Vipassana while having intercourse? Can a person practice Vipassana while killing an animal?
