Re: Super Bowl!!!

Greetings, I can't appreciate any sport that doesn't involve some variety of tactics... and there's only one sport that really interest me, probably on account of the veritable multitude of tactics and that's cricket. A game so seemingly boring to the uninstructed observer, yet it appears 2nd on tha...

Re: Usnisha

Greetings,

Interesting. I've always thought of it as "light" (signifying an enlightened mind) moreso than a flame.

The Buddha has no flames, because the flames have been extinguished. The Buddha is cool. 8-)

Re: E-Sangha

Greetings Element, From experience, I would say many if not most issues are created by moderators abusing power.... These kinds of websites always have issues when through wanting to control opinion and not looking bad when defeated in debate, the moderators abuse their power. I trust this site will...

Re: E-Sangha

Greetings Chris, Thank you for providing a perspective from "the other side of the fence" as it were, which I feel nicely complements what I wrote at the bottom of the first page of this thread. I think Brandon from Buddha Chat put it well when he explained that at a particular point in a board's ev...

Re: Super Bowl!!!

Greetings,

If my experience is anything to go by, very few people in Australia care about the Super Bowl.

This one however has attracted marginally more interest simply because the kicker for one of the sides is Ben Graham, a former Australian Rules Footballer.

Re: The teachings of Bhikkhu Buddhadasa

Greetings Element,

To what extent did Buddhadasa believe that the Theravada commentarial interpretations had gotten the application of the two truths with respect to the Buddha's teachings mixed up?

Re: Women can't become Buddhas?

Greetings,

It looks like the potential for us to discuss this matter from a Theravadin perspective has been exhausted.... hence the lack of recent posts actually related in any way to the topic at hand.

This thread will now be closed - thank you all for your participation.

Metta,
Retro. :)
