Re: Have you changed Buddhist schools since joining DW?

I haven't changed schools, I'm still primarily Theravada, however, it has changed me for the better. From practicing and studying and participating in online forums, I've adjusted my thinking for the better. When I first became Buddhist my thinking was Theravada = old, original; Mahayana = later, ad...

I haven't read his books, but of course have heard a lot about him and also saw the movie about his life, great, brilliant mind.

Re: Why samsara exists

Short answer: craving Pali: taṇhā Sanskrit: tṛṣṇā Why does life even exist and why is there craving at all? These are unconjecturables. https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/an/an04/an04.077.than.html Other religions don't have adequate answers either, for example why do humans exist, have souls,...

Re: What place does pilgrimage have in Buddhist practice?

Odiyan should definitely be on that list, if they ever allow visitors, that is. :smile: From their website: Please note that we cannot accommodate short-term public visits. That's too bad, that they don't allow visitors; it looks beautiful. They probably could make some money if they opened for vis...

Re: Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

I may have mentioned this in one of the other gun threads but I'll repeat it here since this is specifically regarding the 2nd Amendment: To repeal a Constitutional Amendment you need to have the okay from Congress plus 3/4 of the State legislatures. Since there are currently 50 states, that require...

Re: What place does pilgrimage have in Buddhist practice?

The 72-foot tall statue of Avalokitesvrara in Sugar Land, Texas is a sight to behold, and really unlike anything else you can find in North America. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuong_Phat_Quan_Am Interesting that you mention that statue in Sugar Land, Texas. In my earlier post I mentioned how the...

Re: Vegetarian Diet Recommendations

Nuts are good, especially walnuts which contain some Omega 3s. Watch out not to eat too much cheese and dairy. When I first became vegetarian I was eating too much cheese and dairy and my weight went up. Now I'm mostly vegan, eating vegan at least 6 of 7 days per week and I'm stable at my ideal weig...

Re: What place does pilgrimage have in Buddhist practice?

If you can afford it, I highly recommend it. It should be on every Buddhist's bucket list (that can afford it). I went in 2006 and loved it. It's kind of expensive for Americans since it's literally like going to the exact opposite side of the globe. I found a direct flight from Los Angeles to Londo...
