Those must be "Seven Fold Path" practitioners!
From Araṇavibhaṅga Sutta
“Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu attains to the first dhyana. . . second dhyana. . . third dhyana. . . fourth dhyana. To this is said the non sensual pleasure, the pleasure of seclusion, appeasement and enlightenment. It should be practised, made much and should not be feared, I say.”
Yes, sometimes it's very difficult to learn something from an old thread without wasting time just because of the amount of derailing posts. This also goes for off-topic jokes. Otherwise, well-intended jokes actually help to understand Dhamma points easily for those without a deep understanding on the topic.mikenz66 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:58 pmAnd please don't argue with the post. It is much easier for the moderating team to split off one or two off-topic posts than to trawl through a topic sorting between the on-topic posts and the off-topic ones, and the replies to the off topic ones, and the replies to the replies... The time that takes can be prohibitive...
