Re: Renewable Energy

Solar is a great match for schools: lots of roof space, usually not too much shade because there are playgrounds around the buildings, and virtually all consumption is during sunlight hours. Hence this: Queensland fast-tracks school solar roll-out in bid to beat Covid blues A Queensland government p...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I posted this on DWE a couple of years ago - visit https://dharmawheel.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=184 for the discussion, if you like - and it's still useful.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

This looks like a good point at which to share a longish article which I really liked. It begins - What is a conspiracy theory anyway?

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Meanwhile, here come the problems in the developing world.

Re: Filing a police report against spouse for domestic violence as a Buddhist?

:good: What are your views on this dilemma? How can one reflect and how should one approach this scenario as a Buddhist? Most things in life are a mixture of good and bad. We often talk about "mixed karma" for this reason. The best we can do is reduce the bad as much as we can. Reporting an abusive ...

Re: supporting the anime industry

I'm not really sure what you mean by following my better nature or my sensual, conventional nature. I really just want some advice on whether or not I should go, or if going would be making bad karma. But you know that going would be making bad karma - you explained it very well in your OP.

Re: Babylon Bee

...If one craves analysis of humor or the comic spirit, consider Bergson's essay "Laughter": The comic spirit has a logic of its own, even in its wildest eccentricities. It has a method in its madness. It dreams, I admit, but it conjures up, in its dreams, visions that are at once accepted and unde...
