Re: Vitamin D

Holly mackerel allows for much lesser tons than that. "Holly" exclusively! I said I was wrong in the post above yours. No point in bringing up an error I already said was a mistake— and that I corrected myself (saying it would require 0.5-1 kg of sardines daily). (Could you address my previous post...

I don't have wrong views
There are a few in your previous posts just now I pointed out... Or do you mean you have absolute and complete truth? Even I have wrong views...

Only an arahant has no wrong views.

Maybe you should think other things, rather the unconceivables—of which AN 4.77 says that "one who tries to conceive them would reap either madness or frustration."

Re: "Killing" the unworthy aspirants

What is the numbering of the sutta you quoted? Yodhajiva Sutta What SN 42.3 deals with is mercenaries killing people by the hundreds in war—and the accompanying wrong view associated with that. That is what is said leads to hell in the sutta. It's not about your parents (and you, for that matter) h...

Re: "Killing" the unworthy aspirants

Now, there are two destinations for a person with wrong view, I tell you: either hell or the animal womb. When this was said, Yodhajiva the headman sobbed & burst into tears. The Blessed One said: That is what I couldn't get past you… What is the Sutta? There are differing degrees of wrong views. E...

Re: "Killing" the unworthy aspirants

I'm just trying to correct their wrong view to become right view and thus avoid hell If you are to "teach" someone, it's important that your views are true/valid in the first place. Based on many of your posts, you hold some views that don't follow Buddhist teachings/are wrong view. Thinking your p...

It's a metaphor. And is about monastic life!

If your parents—or anyone else—are unteachable, stop forcing your views on them!

Re: Memorization and the Oral Tradition

I guess this more or less end our discussion here and (as for me) to this forum as well.

That was definitely dishonestly not clear from the start of the thread. All t...

Re: "Killing" the unworthy aspirants

It's also important that the "untamable person" isn't simply "someone you find annoying," or "someone you disagree with." Either way... the Sutta is simply a metaphor that refers to Kesi initially saying what he does with his untamable horses—and as Ven. Dhammanando has said, is descriptive rather t...

Re: Vitamin D

A can of sardines, with one (to one and a half) teaspoon of (delicious lemon) Mollers' cod liver oil a day - along with some vitamin supplement (usually 5 μg/day for vit. D) - should be amply sufficient. 1. Cod liver oil is a supplement (also, vitamin A in liver is in "retinol" form, which is relat...
