Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

And yes, there is anti-feminism in the Dhamma, for example the suttas Anuruddha sutta and Uggaha Sutta: Hi budo It is budo who is attributing anti-feminism to the Dhamma. Do you think the Buddha taught with an anti-feminist intention? Nonsense question. The Dhamma is orthogonal to ideology. Certain...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Greetings, So what is the point of discussion or is the OP just intended to be a list? That's probably a question best put to the OP, but list/resource topics are nothing new. Metta, Paul. :) Perhaps someone from the moderation team could have the op clarify what the thread is actually about

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

Greetings Mike, If this topic is supposed to be about the Dhamma, I think that it would have been much better to use a thread title like: "Extracts from suttas and jataka tales that I imagine that some people whose views I disagree with might have difficulty accepting." Or "Sutta teachings that cou...

Re: Dhamma that triggers SJWs

As long as I'm on a Theravadan forum, I will continue to post Theravadan texts regardless of what people outside of Theravada think. They give up their autonomy to views when they enter a forum regarding specific views. budo But why associate Theravadan texts with pejorative language and to degener...

Re: Abortion sources

Mr Man, If you study the Abhidhamma work translated by Narada Mahathera or the revision by Bhikkhu Bodhi you will find bhavanga & bhavangasota as part of Buddha's higher or more difficult teachings. Others here can probably provide sutta quotes on rebirth of the entity occurring at conception. Hi W...

Re: Abortion sources

So are there many individual streams of consciousness? Okay when you said " bad kamma has more to do with interrupting that stream & putting much negative, sorrowful kamma-phala into that life stream." Are you saying one life stream is interrupting another life stream? Is one life stream putting "n...

Re: Abortion sources

Hi Will The modern focus of many lay Buddhist folk on developmental stage of the baby in the womb misses the bigger point. Human life is a stream over many samsaric lifetimes, thus the bad kamma has more to do with interrupting that stream & putting much negative, sorrowful kamma-phala into that lif...

Re: Self defence

Nothing about self defence in the Mangala Sutta “Many devas & human beings give thought to protection, desiring well-being. Tell, then, the highest protection.” The Buddha: “Not consorting with fools, consorting with the wise, paying homage to those worthy of homage: This is the highest protection. ...

Re: Self-Defence

Let's see you carry that attitude off in Sierra Leone. How many people who are born and raised in Sierra Leone have an interest in Buddhism? The point is that its easy to say such things, but a lot less easy to act accordingly when the situation actually arises. Substitute any actually risky situat...

Re: Self-Defence

How ethical would it be for a Buddhist layperson to carry a knife or gun for self-defense? I'm wondering because not everyone has the privilege of living in a safe environment. Consider these points- Killing is unethical. All environments are unsafe. Are there examples supporting carrying weapons f...

Hi clw_uk Do you have the reference for your quotation please clw_uk? Sure: ““These four types of kamma have been understood, realized, & made known by me. Which four?
