Re: What brought you to the dharma & what's your biggest challenge?

... I have a theory of "everything at its time". ... A good saying. I was always wondering: why I had to go through all those pesonal dramas in my life before meeting the Buddhadharma? I assumed it was due to bad karma and wrong wishes in lifetimes before. But at the end nobody knows. Maybe I met t...

Re: What brought you to the dharma & what's your biggest challenge?

... My biggest challenge right now, I think, is not having enough time for uninterrupted practice, not having access to teachers, and recently being diagnosed with a disease which might very well mean only having a few years left to practice. ... :namaste: Be safe and protected.

Re: wrong autocorrect

Maybe you can fix the language somewhere? On my Ipad I can choose the language (English, German or French) on the keypad and it helps with spelling. I don'r know anything about windows 10. But if you search at certain forums you should get an answer quickly how to adjust that autocorrect programme. ...

The people who advertize for nuclear power cannot count. This electricity is not cheap as soon as you add the costs for the storage of the waste.

Re: Is it bad if I, as a youngster Buddhist, go to parties and drink alcool or smoke weed?

I'm not an extreme guy. I just like to enjoy some drinks and some a bit of ganja and I just want to know your opinion. Despite my party life I love to follow the Dharma the best I can Regards :) You have to observe and answer it by yourself. I experienced in my life: "If you don't go in, you can't ...

Re: HHDL teachings Bodhgaya 2019/20

I haven't heard anything about exactly this.

But since His Holiness was very sick lately I can imagine that they have to shorten his schedule. He survived a pneumonia.

Happy Birthday and long life to dearest Dalai Lama. :namaste:

Re: Admin comings and goings

The name "Admin Greg" reminds me of Starship Enterprise :thinking: ... maybe because it has the same sound-rhythm as "Captain Kirk".

Anyhow, CONGRATS for taking responsibility and BEST WISHES.
