Re: Which Palicanon translation to use?

In the end, the pali canon is best to be read in pali. :-) It takes a year or two to get a good understanding of the pali language, but: 2 years is nothing if we benefit from it for the rest of our lives. That were my thoughts for starting learning pali. But of course there is nothing wrong with sta...

True, but unfortunately most people haven't got the chance to attend an autopsy, have they?

Re: Autopsy documentary about the human body & diseases

Thank you for posting those other 3 videos. If you get a chance to see the Bodyworks expositions by G. von Hagens (the one doing the autopsy in those videos), I'd really recommend it. Yeah, perhaps I will visit these expositions one day. I think I once heard about them (through newspaper or somethin...
