Songs that remind you of the Dhamma. ... The title alone is just too deep for me. :cry: Why $300? What is Alex? Please help. :anjali: Oh! Look up the “Jeopardy” game show. The name of the host is “Alex Trebeck”. And “Sounds like Buddhism” could easily be a category on the game show. Also. It’s like...

Re: What needs to be done so that Theravada is never called Hinayana

. Maybe just maybe: WHEN theravadan monks started singing and hip-hopping and playing guitar like these Mahayanan monks & nuns in the following videos, AND IF they were automagically well cherished and seemlessly accepted by harmoniously resonated audience of the similar Dhamma maturity, THEN Manay...

Re: SN Goenka - Theravada Dhammaduta extraordinaire

Re: Training in Aversion is wrong

... ... But... Asubha (ugliness, foulness) is not Aversion (dosa). Asubhasaññā cannot rightly be done as cultivating dosa or dosavinayāya, can it? See AN4.96. It's exactly this carefulness of words, thoughts, practice, and View, with which I hope we all have success. I appreciate this discussion. :...
