Why getting up in the mornig? What for?
To end suffering, dukkha. To practice properly which results in the end of suffering.
Diligence in practice is very important in the Buddha's teaching.

Re: 200,000 posts!

200k is a nice number.
More than one person could ever read, but still small and cosy (not overwhelming) compared to the biggest forums on the internet. :-)

Re: Pali training rules

Well, majja (from the root mad) just means intoxicant. I'm pretty sure that even at the time when the Buddha was living there were more intoxicants than just alcohol.
