I have no problem with TB, I certainly wouldn't go to the TB forums and tell them how retrograde I find their philosophy and practices
You say whatever you want to those retrograde yokels.

Re: winning the lottery...???

Best way I've heard of playing the lottery was from a financial advisor here in the UK. What he did was picked his lottery numbers and paid what that pick would cost into a savings account. Each week he would play and put the money away into the savings account. If the numbers came up for a win, he...

Re: Mala Etiquette

In the absence of that, Malcolm gave the best advice here, which I can only repeat, and that is to get a bodhiseed mala made from seeds which are as near as possible to their natural state.

Pics?
Next time i will grab a couple.

I didn't bring the camera cause i didn't want to get it wet, but I guess it's no big deal.

Also, the spring I visited is a pool that is just fed by a hotspring, so it's appearance is not very exotic.

Enjoy man, sounds like a blast, I'll actually be in Albuquerque soon, but it doesnt compare. The hot...

Re: Morality of stockholding

True, we should look after the environment. That's a good point. I agree. Also, since Buddhism is about individuals, individuals who experience sufferings, so by protecting a balanced healthy state of our environment we can help all of those individuals around. This allows us also to accumulate mer...
