time travel what would you do

Post by mario92 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:20 pm



Hi during surfing the net i met with different images of people of other ages in past cultures that came from future or viceversa so i made a research about buddhism and time travel and encountered the link above. My conclusion is that every kamma that we experience is like time travel, and we have the power to change that through good kamma, uppekkha, or repentance hoping not to commit that kamma again, etc. What would you do if you would being able to time travel? :woohoo: I found very interesting
I think karma is the first topic we should understand before starting in meditation.

I would make copies of various writings that were lost and referred to in other writings.

I would make videos of Siddhartha Gautama giving dhamma talks.

I would then make a rationale to sell the rights to Wisdom Publications. :)

If I could travel in time, the first thing I would do, is to desperately try to find the Earth before my oxygen runs out. It travels at great speed through space, so even after a few seconds it would be gone ... :rolleye:

Rectifying kamma? Meh... 8-)

Here's the right answer:

1) Fasten your seat belts
2) Go 2500 years back
3) Find Buddha
4) Ordain under him
5) ....
6) Profit
