Area "only" for monastics

Post by Samana Johann 1 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 4:55 pm

May the owner not feel pressured or feel in any way uncomfortable with this uninvited approach:

It would be good if there are spaces for monastics to approach formal and not proper for the public issues and ways of regards.

Althought it's global more trendy today to use majorities to walk ones way, it's good if possibilities, for those with much trust into the Buddhas heritage, are avaliable.

My person did not put it here to give food for much discussions, since such is exclusively something that can be given by one who has the possibilities and of course his choice.

At least it's a matter of, let my person call it in this case, gratitude, since it would be better understood as other words, to make this suggestion toward one "owes" certain "repayments".

It's also good to find and use means so that no one needs to have bad conscious in regard of anything possible taken in trust that such assuming could be wrong.

It's especially for modern people, hearing so much that intention counts, important to know, that not all, possible less monks can read mind and even if so, there are still outwardly things that have to be fullfilled, not at least to make best use of someones gift so that it might not get wrong used or by people accepted who would not be able to receive a gift, knowing the owners dedication and follow the act also by judging word and physical deed.

Something hard to learn, if not used since child to act very "formal", really cool.

Maybe the "grandfather" of connecting worlds likes to give certain not usual ways some basement to grow.

Again, it would missing much, if not telling that it is even a big sacrifice to give space for this, but bad conscious and actually not possible to make use of it personal, if followed, remains. So like always, at the same time giving a sample, aside of just words, on the words case.

Openings toward release and giving them leave are seldom.
It's not clear if the possibility to take on form here is given, so also this post might be made on merely uncomfortable trust. Please don't be shy to make remark as well as to do what ever with the post you might be inspired to. Key is found here. May it be, how ever, understood as Dhamma-Dana toward the Sangha of Buddhas Savakas and those following them and not thought for any kind of trade or exchange for low purpose for the world. Feel also always welcome here.

Greetings Samana Johann 1,

The idea for such a section has been put forward in the past by lay people, but any feedback we have received from monastics about the idea is that it is unnecessary.

However, I will leave this topic open, and if we get at least three active monastic members speaking favourably of the idea then we will consider it.

Until such time, if there are two or less monastics interested in such engagement, then they may just as easily correspond with one another via PM.

Metta,
Paul. :)

I can recall in the past there were some suggestion that there should be separate forum for women.
I think it was turned down considering it may create too much divisions.

With all possible respect my person is able to collect for Upasakas utopian equalism and to give another sample of Upasaka retros "free biting ones own tale" approaches:

My person doubts that there are even three consciously invited monks around. So what do you expect? Sould they do fist a public wrestling for such that potential people with certain merits would sacrifice their merits then toward that what seems to work in demo-cracy?

Let if be a matter of possibility for the owner and surely good if chosing your Venerable leader in blue to take charge of being someone receiving monks and introduce them good if they give way.

The smiling seeking for socialicing under householder will neverless appear as well as many laypeople searching after flower giver.

Try to log out and read treads like your "free speech topic" as if it would have been written by somebody else.

Than maybe, and Upasaka can be sure that my person is not personal touched, try to switch to be a good sample for other, don't approach possible higher by "greetings" and use your given name and your face or do you think that the would becomes a better place if it is driven by anonymous and those with sick compassion for those without basically trust into kamma?

Upasaka or ika, actally acted very wise.

There is enough food out there for those seeking samsara, lose, gain, honor, rebuke, pleasure and pain...

Upasaka David would have the merits, so let him, as actually the one really in carge make a choice if sacrifice the for politics and in hope not to lose or to let go of wordly issues and make by giving the future really secure.

It's somehow a good time now to give a possiblility for the unknown path in between.

(You do not know how much tnt the owner carries by providing "secret" socialication in the background. The sooner you close such as pm the better and provide the protection of the singe communities, like in the Sangha and usual in lay peoples areas in traditional countries as well.

In that way "free speech" regulates it self very fast if getting more aware of effects before detonations appear.

So try to be real cool and give alternatives long time provided till here by wise a serious longer try. For it's of no use to sacrify into something regarded as own. Thats why people seek refuge into the Sublime Tripple Germs, since long with success and less with modern peoples all around frustration.

Give people something worthy to take refuge.

My person talks to much. Do as you are fit and possible don't jump between your father and his responsibility.

Upasaka Sarath, if you would know how ashamed your grandparents would be seeing their grand child totally forgetting basics, yet actually very smart, Sarath would probably come to mind and seek for re-ligion.

If your grand parents would see their child acting in modern world, they would be really ashamed although you country has been infected by western philosophies first of all traditional Buddhist counties.

Now my person goes to watch the modern enlightened asians when they cut all the forests and blame others to be so currupt. You know them, the classical "middle class" people knowing a little more of the mass but still nothing for preserving our increase their goodness.

Althought disrespectful, nevertheless, out of (arrogant seeming) compassion, householder David.

Clear that it is hard to understand, ones corruted. A Bhikkhu (who is not uninformed or alajjī) is not able to ask for dwelling, also not to ask for transport, he does also not make use of "public" thinks aside of short "emergancies", uses no social shares of the land. And the fact that there are many "cool" around, does not change matters.

They do also not part-take on any election aside for Sangha-kamma matters interally.

And it's really up to you and what is wisely given of what is gained. How ever cool one becomes one meets.

And it's because of not common generosity that this has been possible received.

Metta & mudita

Even playing around, chess and all that stuff. Times running. Try to bring yonisomanasikāra into the games. Possibilities are seldom.

And one more thing, it's really disrespectful to sit crossleged like a Juwel dealer playing with his Bauern (pawn) around.

(A Bhikkhu hardly would be able to tell you such things and there are really no lay people around taking care of each other making no basically mistakes even they would know. Does housholder David likes to raise this kind of generation for the sake of -ism? Is it really all worth, this "fun"? Is there nothing inspiring to see when reading, hearing of the lay man sakes, starting by Anāthapiṇḍikassa? What is all this homie-hood worth for refuge?)

May you all finde sufficent faith to become, after a try, a taste of being a "loser" who does no more require fun.

Agreed. The previous offer, afforded in good faith, is now withdrawn.
