enabling editing for a longer period of time

I've had this problem quite a few times before: I make a post and then forget about certain points, but when I want to edit the post and add them in, or change the way I said something to make it more clear, the edit button is gone. This is something I typically do, so it would be nice to leave the ...

Re: can a sinner rise to fame?

Re: Buddhism and Ethical Conduct

I'm just a teenager (almost going into university) also looking for answers, in fact I don't even know if I should be giving advice because I am inexperienced and don't know much about Buddhism, plus because of who I've been in the past but... When I discovered that I've been a horrible person for a...

If someone has committed one or more of the 5 heinous crimes in the past (e.g. killing parents, injuring a Buddha, etc.) that they deeply and sincerely regret but no one knows about, and they dream of being famous (for example recording songs, writing books and songs, recording vlogs and music video...

Is offering unhealthy food to Buddhas and Boddhisattvas harming them?

Since today is a special Buddhist holiday, I want to offer some bubble tea to a Bodhisattva, since bubble tea is my favorite food, and I can't really think of anything else that represents me. However, I heard that the tapioca pearls in bubble tea can sometimes contain cancer causing, harmful, chemi...

Re: Would Buddha agree?

When I refer to 'life' I'm talking about life altogether, that means in all the realms, not just human life by the way :rolling: sorry about that!!

Would Buddha agree?

I'm a grade 12 student who wants to leave a quote in the yearbook, but I'm not sure if Buddha would agree with the quotes I've been considering: "I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant.

deadly sins?

First of all, I apologize that this is going to be quite lengthy, because I have backstory I want you to know about before I ask my questions relating to the backstory. As a young child, I was raised in a Chinese Buddhist household. I didn't exactly study about Buddha's teachings, but I prayed to th...
