Re: Do arahants still have delights and cravings?

This isn't right. Arahants don't have any defilements. There is no craving, no delighting (that is, subtle craving by way of relishing).

Let's imagine. If you are a monkey who is fulled, not needing any food. But you see a coconut hanging on a coconut tree. And at the same time, one of your leg is hurt. What you do? You will continue climb on it, even though it's not needed, but you as a monkey thinks you need the coconut so that you...

Re: Kruba Ariyachat and Amulets

Hmm sometimes I just don't feel comfortable wearing those Amulets which are not a Buddha's rupa. Thanks for the informations you guys gave me. But still, meditation and purification of our mind is much better than wearing any Amulets. :anjali:
