Re: Richard Dawkins : "I will Arrest Pope XVI"

Does anyone agree with the idea of legal consequences for Pope Benedict XVI? And what do you make of the charge of crimes against humanity? I would be very curious about people's thoughts :) Best, Laura As usual, I would recommend to all professional fault seekers to clean out their own stables fir...

Re: Pesticides used in organic farming?

Hello, Lazyeye! To answer your questions: Is your farming just for you personally, or do you distribute your products? I own a small/medium sized garden, and produce only for myself, mostly, but I've given away gifts when I had too much. I have: a cherry tree, a plum tree, raspberries, blackberries,...

Re: Pesticides used in organic farming?

Ok, Mr. Naive here thought that when I go to the store and buy organic vegetables, I am getting something which was produced without the use of toxic pesticides. However, it appears this is not the case. Pesticides can be used in organic farming as long as they are "natural" rather than "synthetic"...

Re: What Makes A Real Man?

Forgive me if I am missing something, but why would the Buddha's male organs interest me? Or any person's that I am not intimate with? Why would the Buddhas potency interest me, after he became a monk, and when I know he had a son before that? Like I said, perhaps I am missing the Tantra aspects, bu...

Re: WOMEN ONLY PLEASE!

Okay, I am not a woman, but I would like for only women (preferably) to answer my question. I want to know how a modern practictioner of Mahayana buddhism (regardless of which sect) deals with some of the controversies surrounding Buddha's teachings and women. Such as women not necessarily being eq...

Re: outer beauty, inner ugliness

Well, her beauty will only last maybe 20 years at best, then she'll begin to get wrinkely, round and saggy. The bug might enentually look good by comparison. Ah, dear friend, Beauty doesn't pass when you get wrinkles, and not all women or men get round and saggy. I depends on how well you keep your...

Re: outer beauty, inner ugliness

I guess it just so suddenly shattered all the pleasant ideas I was projecting onto her in my mind. Yes, probably so.... It made me realize how you truly can't judge a person by appearances. :anjali: Yes, I guess I would have liked to believe that she still possessed the benevolent mind which create...

Re: outer beauty, inner ugliness

Luke, I understand that was a bizarre contrast for you. I would be equally taken aback, I'm sure. Perhaps I would reflect on that, obviously, she accumulated some good karma, because she was reborn beautiful. On the other hand, she is (still) ignorant of sentient life, as Buddhists see it. I hope sh...
