What about a seaweed soup?

Definitely good too, if you like soup. Seaweed is very healthy too, full of nutrients. If you're really committed to vegetarianism, you'd want to use a vegetable broth.

Re: Balanced vegetarian diet

Stir fry tofu. Simply cut the tofu in cubes, mix with some veggies, stir fry in a wok. If you don't have a wok, you could use a large deep frying pan. Use olive oil and cook to golden light brown. Very tasty and vegan. https://pinchofyum.com/wp-content/uploads/Honey-Ginger-Tofu-Veggie-Stir-Fry-53-Sq...

Re: Shannon number great, but not infinite.

So your issue with the Theravada, Abhidhamma in particular is the anatta doctrine and where you believe that this means beings don't exist? And you believe this issue doesn't exist in Mahayana?

Re: Threaded display option?

Do you mean something like the format in stack exchange where there are questions and people answer specific questions? Or where you can see individual posts that respond to a specific post? I don't think there is that capability with this software. For me personally, I don't like that format anyway...

Re: Theravada against mathematics

This means that in the beginningless Buddhist past (the chain of conditioned dhammas does not have a first link) all possible events would have happened. The texts don't say that. It states that there is no discernible beginning. “Bhikkhus, this samsara is without discoverable beginning. A first po...

Re: Facts about Buddhism

number 9
Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha) came from a Hindu family, and both religions overlap somewhat. The major difference is that Hinduism is clearly a theistic religion, whereas Buddhism is mostly non-theistic.[3]
Brahmanism; hinduism came later.

Often, statues of the Buddha depict him with short, curly hair to show that he denounced his privileged past. Usually, the wealthy elite would sport a fashionable topknot
The Buddha was bald, in spite of the many representations of him with curly hair.

According to legend, the Buddha was conceived by a mortal mother (Queen Maya) and a baby white elephant in the eastern part of India sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BC
