The Blessed One would never say that on the dissolution of the body the saint who has lost all depravity is annihilated, perishes, and does not exist after death.

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.

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

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

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.
