Re: Ode to Truth: A Testimony of Innocence on “Truth, the Whole Truth, And … Something! with the Truth”

. Hello David, Thanks a lot. My impression: It is extremely likely that "the Teachings" already encompasses "the whole truth" for liberation. . Contextuals & Adaptations already made are understandable and inconsequential. . Which interpretation though? Theravada interpretations, of course. Then, s...

he tricycle's "gay tantra." Oh, please tell me more. I'm not going to watch the Nazi monk's video, so I am at your mercy. Hello, Actually, until seeing this OP, I too can't stand watching a Buddhist monk relating to a guy with Hitler moustache. However, on seeing the video, I enjoyed it, and they b...

Re: Pannobhasa on LGBT

I'm quite amazed to learn the existence of things such as the fifth "parajika"," There are quite a number of things which are not called 'pārājika' in the Vinaya Piṭaka but which are classed as such in the Vinaya commentaries because they entail the same consequences: a liftime ban on receiving ord...

You're adding no soul, this is not done by early Buddhists. from: Concept & Rreality in [/i][/size]Early Buddhist Thought by Bhikkhu Kañukurunde Nanananda Buddhism traces the idea of a SOUL to a fundamental error in understanding the facts of experience. This ignorance (avijjâ) is reflected to a gr...

Pannobhasa shares his views on homosexuality and trans. Thoughts? https://www.bitchute.com/video/KxepI_8bq_w/ Thanks. After seeing the video from the link, the Bhante and the "Nazi Guy" becomes quite enjoyable and informative. I'm quite amazed to learn the existence of things such as the fifth "par...

Re: Poll: Is this the Standpoint of Ven. Katukurunde Nyanananda? "There is NO Soul/Attà/Atman/Ego/Self, anytime, anywher

. But may I remind you that we are on a Theravada Buddhist forum? Theravada does not recognize a soul, so, either you want to understand the difference between your belief and Theravada (which I personally celebrate and welcome), or you seem to be in the wrong place. The eternal trick of the coward...

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

Thanks, I don't understand this: To know what really good is, you need to know what really bad is. For example, to know a red hot iron is really hot, one just needs to touch it. He doesn't necessarily need to know what is the feeling of touching a really cold one like something at -273.15 degrees C...

Re: What is the riddle tree?

... When Jhana developed to understand the four great elements (Dhatu Manasikara) it is not possible for the mind to take them as I, me and myself. For instance, we normally do not take air (oxygen) as I, me or myself in a normal cause of living. Thanks, much. That oxygen simile is sharp and deep. ...

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

Hello, Up to now, although I can't say the book is logical when referring to the words found in the first three sentences of the preface, I can say it is enjoyable, and informative about zero energy universe, and Adenosine. And, I really like the idea of 'short-cut' to the state of "neither percepti...

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

I don't understand this On the middle way, there is no reference point that you are looking for and want to cling to. You open yourself up to all feelings that you experience, without you wanting to interpret them. Now, if you feel pain because you got burned, your body will naturally avoid this, wi...
