Re: Area "only" for monastics

Althought disrespectful, nevertheless, out of (arrogant seeming) compassion, householder David. Clear that it is hard to understand, ones corruted. A Bhikkhu (who is not uninformed or alajjī) is not able to ask for dwelling, also not to ask for transport, he does also not make use of "public" thinks...

Re: Area "only" for monastics

With all possible respect my person is able to collect for Upasakas utopian equalism and to give another sample of Upasaka retros "free biting ones own tale" approaches: My person doubts that there are even three consciously invited monks around. So what do you expect? Sould they do fist a public wr...

Re: keep liberalism out of buddhism

Pseudoliberalism has caused always terrible things in history. If it could find roots it caused the hole generations afterwards to be left of all useful teachers and rafts.

Re: Burmese speaker to help proof listen Burmese suttas

Bhante. Maybe it's good to have those desiring to listen or those who have own resources to make Dhamma-Dana possible and wishing to not only gain merits, take care of proper storage place and means to access it.
