Grim Greetings

Post by Mr. Grimnasty » Sat Dec 29, 2012 9:10 am

Hello,

This is Mr. Grimnasty, grumpy Hinayanist misanthrope, wishing you a good day. Or if not "good", then at least a day that's less intolerable than it might otherwise have been.

Any particular reasons for your grouchy grumpiness, any aversions to deal with ...? :smile:

welcome aboard
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

If you don't have that copywrited, I'd love to put that on my business cards... :jumping:

harm no one nor have them harmed.

Thank you for your welcome.
I expect the reason is simply samsaric atavism. When you've spent as many aeons as I have as a Brahma deity in the Abhassara world, it's no picnic when your merit gets exhausted and you pass away from that state and plummet back down to the human realm with all its insufferable grossness.

Welccome aboard even if DW is a sorry excuse for the Brahma-realms!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
