Re: ups unpolite like ever...

Again, Householder David, what ever would be tried to do and solve things in "modern" ways would not work. My person, and it's actually not the reason for approach to gain ways to approach here, but that you don't loose you connection, better win, to the Savaka Sangha, even if given afterwards, woul...

Re: Paying Respect or Veneration - the unknown very first Sila

No fault at all, Nyom Meezers. It wishing to get right of doubts and ask, feel free to continue on other place, given for such. The occassion and place is not proper here. On the topic, especially toward the smart youngsters and the smart long time practicing elders, not meeting each other out of re...

Re: ups unpolite like ever...

At the end of the line, no, Upasika Binocular. It's by the compassion of the Buddha and many following him, firm confidence. And who is a person with nissaya? Someone who seeks for it. Althought having given elsewhere, in regard of the basic precepts making one a follower of the Buddha, giving up st...

Re: Europe monastery (forest monk) as good as in asian?

It's a good start to walk, if wishing to meet the tradition of forest monks and not just lable use. Only to give up household should require to let go of money to go forth. Oneway ticket is ok and in the same and proper way of one leaving and not in search for a new home. What do you think, if think...

Re: ups unpolite like ever...

Althought (just for information) not required and even not proper at all after such approach, nevertheless, since some might be shy to ask, or unable to use proper means: (Upasaka) Ruslan asked here , so my person guesses it's a good place to answer here. The more attentive might know already, the e...

Re: Paying Respect or Veneration - the unknown very first Sila

Some things to consider in regard of respect and a-stinginess on internet: Avatar and User placements . It bears so many dangers and even "need" of bad conscious through transgression. It's dobble not for increasing of faith (into Dhamma, kamma) if even teacher, leader, yes also monks take on comic ...

Re: Paying Respect or Veneration - the unknown very first Sila

I've got plenty of respect for you Bhante, just not the translation program your using. Again, better toward the Noble Ones, then toward a person, Nyom Mezzer and, again, Atma (my person) does not use programs aside of those given (that of which is given) and trained/maintained within saññākkhandha...

Re: Paying Respect or Veneration - the unknown very first Sila

I shouldn't laugh, but it's hard 😐 That's kind of giving respect, and to give a share of ones good deeds, letting them having part that it is possible by good choices as well, sadhu! Blame would be proper if such was an dobble-agents act. So let it be known if having had great success at least, Nyo...

Re: Serving - Veyyāvacca, the unknown Sila of duty

That would be needed if seeking after servant and gain, yes. But there is nothing to worry in this regard. Who ever is up to merits, who ever prevers to seeks for gain. Personal choices, mr/mrs Binocular. How ever, Sadhu if out of compassion and feeling obligated and but not in the case if out of in...

Re: Are playing games and watching them a form of meditation?

If concentration was meditation then this man would have reached enlightenment long back Then what else is required for concentration? Why this guy can't practice Vipassana after the show? An uninvited jump into and giving touch here: Where ever there is life (becoming, being), there is concentrati...
