Re: Bollywood Buddha ZeeTV series

I liked it. It was a little slow moving in some parts, but that's because it was a series long program and that was just episode 1. I like how it showed the Buddha's parents conceiving naturally, as opposed to the usual (previous) video life depictions which imply or suggest an almost immaculate con...

Good to hear he's okay now, but curious what happened, but as long as he's okay, that's all good.

I'm not on the list as a subscriber either, but I've corresponded with him in the past. I sent him an email, no response yet.

Re: Bhikkhu Samahita's Recent Google Groups Email

On May 5th he (or someone who hacked his account) posted what looks like an ad for anti-hacker software. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/What_Buddha_Said/YGIS7C0xuSE And then a few days later this strange post. Perhaps it's all for advertising that software (by a hacker)? Hopefully so, rathe...

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

There seems to be a syntactic issue here: Whom does "their problems" refer to? I take that what was said earlier, "Relatively rich or well off people love to blame the poor for all their problems," means that the relatively rich or well-off people love to blame the poor for their (ie. the poor peop...

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

Relatively rich or well off people love to blame the poor for all their problems, its really a lot of BS. I suppose it's possible that there might be a few who do that, but I've never seen that. The well off people I know never blame the poor and have much compassion for them. Which problems of the...

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

If get out of the bed or eating food is a kind of greed, it is not about getting out of poverty and become rich with some wealth accrue to ensure one is no more living as a deprived vagrant . Getting out of bed and going to work is not greed to come out of poverty? What if one is in poverty and goe...

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

If I had a dime for every time I'd heard a conservative blame the poor for their own problems, I'd have a sizable sum, Ben Carson is a good example of this BS, Paul Ryan, the list goes on and on. If someone claims they never heard it they're probably a Conservative stretching the truth. Okay, here ...

What did the email say? If it's something outrageous then probably his account got hacked.

Re: Greed is an antidote to poverty .

If greed were the real cause of wealth then everyone would be wealthy :), but we can see that those who wish for wealth sometimes gain it, sometimes they don't - I think most probably it varies according to their kamma, & I think that whosoever attains wealth with greed in their heart would attain ...
