Re: Unkindness at dharmawheel

...okay, maybe "bully" is not the correct word here, but I could not think of anything else.

Honestly, I am a bit shocked, despite of my "cool" reaction above !!!

Re: winning the lottery...???

someone invented a kind of lottery for "basic income" in Germany. Basic income is one of the political demands of left-wing parties that are very controversially discussed here as the pay-gap gets bigger and bigger in wealthy poor old Germany. if you win you get about 1000 Euros basic income for 12 ...

Re: Ehtical Conduct in Buddhist Organisations - Fund for Victims of Abuse

Wanted to edit the previous posting, but did not find the tool for it... I think, when I wrote "lines" or "schools" this is not the correct term in buddhism, it's rather "lineages" and "traditions", isn't it? Nonetheless I am sure that the different traditions and lineages have some core values and ...

Re: On the Rohingya in Myanmar

I know, that giving a little bit of money might be only a "drop" of help and support, but I am convinced that any little contribution will be highly appreciated and will be soaked-up like from a dried sponge.

Hello Surinder, actually I have no experiences with no-dream sleep, but if it affects your health and you do not feel alright, than maybe also a doctor or alternative practioner could help you.
