Re: Insight meditation on the 3 characteristics?

So are you saying that awareness of impermanence is "central" to vipassana, rather than awareness of non-self? You can conclude the other two characteristics by observing impermanence: "Now is what is impermanent painful or pleasant?" — "Painful, venerable Sir." — "Now is what is impermanent, what ...

brain and mind

Hi, are there any Classical Theravadin texts about the function of the brain? Or maybe even about the connection between brain and mind? I'm asking because a neighbour had an apoplectic stroke last week and now he has problems with his memory. That made me wonder how the body is able to damage the m...

Re: Tattoos in Buddhism, Acceptable or not???

I understand that there's no explicit instruction not to do it in most traditions, but it seems like such an unwise use of resources, unnecessary harm to one's own body, and affected. I thought about getting " This too will pass " (just these few words) tattooed on the back of my hand or somewhere ...

Re: Bhikkhuni ordination...

Thank you very much for posting this article, Bhante :bow: I hope some Thai people will get inspired and help to reestablish the bhikkhuni sangha. May the bhikkhuni sangha get reestablished soon.
