Re: The nature of European monarchies

Disparaging people with harsh speech is not helpful and does not help bring Dharma.

Re: The nature of European monarchies

It is disturbing and harmful to hear harsh speech about anyone amanita.

And if someone says anything they get singled out by it.

Re: Why don't "enlightened masters" work together?

It's a paradox. :)

Well, we should pick a particular topic and see if there's combined efforts on it.

Re: Are men or women more interested in Enlightenment?

I don't think this forum is unwelcoming to women at all. And most of the practitioners at the places I go in the US <California to be exact) are women, although I don't have real proof of that. Like others said, I don't think women are less interested in enlightenment or Buddhism, but often the pri...

Re: Knife crimes in England

Increased stop and search of those who fit the black gang membership profile may help, as almost all fatal stabbings occur within this group. It is drug-related, but also stems from a 'gangsta' gang territorial mentality they have adopted, as glamorised by rappers etc. It may seem hilarious to us t...

Re: Anyone know if this is a genuine Buddhist Quote, and who said it?

I do not think it is a quote from a direct source.. There is this however: There are three appropriate ways to answer a question; 1, with a statement; 2, with a question; or 3, with silence. Perhaps this is what you are remembering... Or something between them both. Peace , Namaste, good to have you...

Re: Critic to pure land buddhism as a way of scape reality

Mansurhibi Pure Land Buddhism is very good. This is especially based on Amitabha's vow. Amitahba is a Bodhisattva who became a Buddha; and there are many vows which he made. Most especially, the 18th-20th vows. [18] If I should attain Buddhahood, yet sentient beings of the ten directions who aspire ...

Re: Buddhist Terminology & their Definitions

Many come from Sanskrit, although there are some other languages.

Great thread. Here are some.

Shanti is peace.

Metta you will see very often, this means love or loving-kindness.

Bodhi, this is like Buddha,. . . Bodhi Tree for example.

Prajna is wisdom.

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

She has not only said nothin to help stop the genocide, she has made comments which make the situation worse. In an exclusive interview with the BBC last April, she acknowledged problems in Rakhine state but she said ethnic cleansing was "too strong" a term to use. "I don't think there is ethnic cle...

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

Burma is essentially run by one of the world's most lauded humanitarians — a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a democracy icon. Aung San Suu Kyi, who leads the party in charge of the government, suffered more than two decades of repression, including a long house arrest, rather than leave the country...

Repatriation (Myanmar)

Repatriation began in Myanmar a little while back, agaainst all sanity -- The situation had not changed; so sending people back to where they will likely be killed, is itself a moral question, if not a crime. And after such, all of the previous seems to have begun again. As a positive, Mothers have ...
