Re: I dont love you

In Buddism we learn not to be attached, we achieve equanimity, then we learn not to be attached to equinimity. There is a part of the mind that has obscurations, and that part may wish to create relationships, end them, recieve affection/to be loved. But the underlying nature of mind exists teanspe...

Re: Random Thoughts

A compassionate soul corrected my bad grammar:

"WHOEVER reads this is a fatso." Or: "... smells like fish & onion."

Re: Setting up a simple altar

I never heard of such a special mantra. I believe, the mantra you are used to might be best.

In the past, some people shared photos of their shrines in this subforum: viewforum.php?f=115&start=25

Welcome. :smile:

Some venerable FB-friend of mine is from Valencia. She's a Tibetan Buddhist nun. Then Ösel Hita is from Spain. And I met some Tibetan Buddhist persons in meatspace - they were from Barcelona. All followers of the Dalai Lama. :smile:

Re: I dont love you

Hello dear friends, People can say "i dont love you". This statement can destroy a persons happiness. This statement "i do not love you" assumes relative or conditional love. So does it mean nothing to us Buddhists with our eggs firmly in the basket of absolute/unconditional love? Do we just feel c...

138 minutes in one single take

Yesterday I saw a film that was impressing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_(2015_film) The story was simple action stuff: some stupid teenagers ruined their lifes within two hours one morning in Berlin. But the style was amazing: the complete film was shot in one single continuous take. The ...

Re: If our honesty is hurtful to some, should we remain silent?

My mother-in-law was a bit similar. I think, if you have to express yourself, you should not be silenced. The best idea is to create a new blog address and not mention it to your family. On the other hand, if Buddhism is not concerned, I think, a little homeopathic dose of honesty is very important ...

Re: Is chewing Nicotine Gum to quit smoking a breach of the 5th precept?

Trying to quit smoking is supporting the 5th precept. Nevertheless if smoking is an intoxication that concerns the 5th precept or not: the trial to leave a bad habit supports good habits and restraint already. IMO.

Re: Random Thoughts

Went to a symphony last night and I swear Coolio's Gangster's Paradise sounds a lot like Dvorak's Serenade for Strings, Op22 II. Menuetto. And actually, Coolio's song is a sample of Stevie Wonder, so I'm "wondering" if Stevie got a bit of his musical ideas from Dvorak. My impression is only consume...
