Re: Beer emoji

Greetings,

As has been said before by David, it can be non-alcoholic root beer if you like.

As Sam has said, this issue has been raised before... so this topic will be closed.

Thanks.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

Greetings, However i am exploring long term solutions to eliminate such non-sensical behavior entirely. There is only one person in whom one can ever "eliminate such non-sensical behavior entirely". It's a delusional authoritarian fantasy to presume it is otherwise. I figured that if a person does t...

Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

Greetings, I'll take that at face value, but let's just say that there's a lot of whinging and moaning from certain people, who aren't doing their cause any favours by exhibiting many of the same behaviours they complain about in others. Is it so hard just to be decent and civilized? Is it really so...

Greetings, Venerable Dhammanando and salayatananirodha have answered this question from the perspective of the Dhamma. The question itself, however, as worded, is beyond the scope of this forum. As per Nicholas' suggestion, please take it to Dhamma Wheel Engaged or another corner of the Internet. Th...

Second violation during probation 14 days ban and 14 days probation, third violation during probation 30 days ban and 30 days probation. FYI... Suspensions of ...

Re: Signs of Kali Yuga

Greetings Will, However, if one must fulfill the 'connection' requirement, Theravada & Mahayana share the same fourfold series of time cycles from the Sramana tradition. Therefor the 'connection' is that the yuga cycles & the Buddhist cycles both are fourfold & both are endless cycles & both have up...

Re: Slavic Buddhism vs Western Buddhism

Greetings, The prevailing ideas in your country do have the potential to shape how some practice, view or approach Buddhism. For example, if you pick up a copy of Tricycle now in 2018, it will be full of the kinds of things that have been described here in this topic as "Western". Interestingly, I d...
