The standard description of nibbana after death is,
"All that is sensed, not being relished, will grow cold right here."

Hi cappuccino,

Is there something you are wishing to discuss in regards to the music videos and lyrics you posted? I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you are not proselytizing here.

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

In addition to proselytizing, there is also this from section 4:

Since you are not here alone, new topics should invite discussion via questions, suggestions, an introduction, or provide appropriate context.


Please clarify the purpose or this thread will be closed.

Be that as it may, a thread cannot just consist of dumping links. Please make something of this thread or it will be closed. If you wish to refute the points made in another thread, refute them in that thread.

This is simple situation: tell the members what you would like to happen in this thread, and as long as it does not amount to proselytizing it can remain. If you refuse to do so, then it is over.

Scattered throughout the suttas are references to as many as thirty-one distinct "planes" or "realms" of existence into which beings can be reborn during their long wandering through samsara.

In Buddhist cosmology, the heaven realms are blissful abodes whose present inhabitants (the devas) gained rebirth there through the power of their past meritorious actions.
