Re: A Lesson.

Good story. It could be as Simon noted, it's not the time for him to teach and discuss further, so showed his humility that way. Or it could be that he just has no interest in teaching. After all what purpose would there be to discuss his spiritual accomplishments if he had no interest in teaching. ...

Re: Choosing between Chan, Zen, Jìngtǔzōng, and Jōdo Shinshū

Here is something I wrote over at DP: Chan Buddhism, the precursor to Zen (in Japan) is sort of like a "One Dharma" or "Buddhayana" all-inclusive Buddhism. They have monastic clergy members o...

Re: Chess

This one is from the other day, I drew a 2300 rated player. I was winning most of the game, ... 46...Nxc5 made it a draw, however. Instead, 46...a2 wins (this was my idea but I mis-played it.) :thumbsup: I was playing a game against a GM many years ago and felt I had a good shot at winning the game...

Re: Rise of plant-based alternative Meats? (like Soy-based)

It tastes very much like meat and has the same consistency too. I've been vegetarian for 35 years, so don't miss the taste of meat but see how it could be good for new vegetarians. They have it (impossible burgers) at Fat Burger fast food restaurants and some other places too, here in the U.S. Here'...

Not a function used much, but the Add button is there, so I tried and the Choose button was dead??
Still an issue. Hopefully DNS or some mod will increase the file size limit to 5MB at least - or more.
Okay, increased it to 10MB at DWT and here at DWM. Try it now.

Re: Buddhism and the Historical Buddha

Now the question. If it is not historical evidence or metaphysical reasoning, what do all these Buddhists ground themselves in? Where is the "Buddhism" in Engaged Buddhism? How are you supposed to know what the dharma is? Anywhere there is the Four Noble Truths, which includes the 8-fold path. Wher...

Re: Joe Biden 2020

I get her facebook feed, i never signed up for it, looks to me like she's going to go for it. I felt she was the better choice between her and President Donny, but thats not saying a lot.

Re: Joe Biden 2020

That's pretty good (the Trevor Noah video). :D I suppose there would be too many legal ramifications, but imagine how much could be raised for charity if Biden and Trump agreed to a boxing match. Imagine the revenue stream from live pay per view or commercials, etc. And they are both around the same...
