Re: Even if science proves re-birth, Kamma, Deva and Brhama worlds?

I mean honestly even an honest Buddhist who has some Dhamma knowledge will instantly opt for rebirth under such pain; it's pretty unbearable unless you have seriously trained your mind. No wonder we all end up here again and again! (for me it wasn't so much the intensity of the pain, as in, when yo...

Re: The Official Dhamma Wheel Cat Thread

There's a reason I avoided this thread until today. Almost a year ago I first caught glimpse of this beautiful calico in the ferns. She was so timid that just to look in her direction was enough to send her bolting. Last winter I started to see her more often. About two months ago I finally had her ...

Re: Some towns in France ban burkinis

I've heard the numbers in a video, one in the many I have watched. That's why I can't find the specific sources. The inuendo of intentionally lying is not apreciated because I don't lie as a rule. The actual figures, as of December, 2nd, 2015 , are in fact what you said above, as explained here: :s...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

One would think that Buddhism's emphasis on "seeing the true nature of things" would have some influence on political discussions, evidently not!! Agreed!!! Seeing how many people actually want Hillary in office makes me lose hope for humanity The implication is that you believe Donald Trump would ...

Re: Even if science proves re-birth, Kamma, Deva and Brhama worlds?

I just wonder even if science proves that there is re-birth, Kamma, Vipaka, Deva and Brahma worlds, super normal powers will the people are going to be different. Will this be a better place?
