Re: What do you sit on during meditation?

I hadn't thought of that. Maybe I should cut loose some cash and get some dedicated gear. I've been meaning to for a long time now anyways. JUST TO CLARIFY: You don't have to go out and buy "new" gear, if you are comfortable using a towel or pillow etc... great!!! But if possible dedicate these ite...

Re: Witnessing Suffering

When I see someone, either human or animal suffer, I feel a great sense of suffering as well. As a Buddhist, is this a normal reaction to such events?? This sense of suffering is caused by repeated reaction, If we identify something as pleasant, we experience pleasant sensations, if we identify som...

Re: What do you sit on during meditation?

These days I'm using two pillows off the bed and a piece of the foldaway bed in the living room. And earplugs. Hi catmoon you seem like a really happy kitty so this probably isn't a problem for you. But if you or anyone else suffers from sloth and torpor :zzz: during meditation, they may want to re...

When you die it will be the present, when you are born it will be the present, in the future when you are a Buddha it will be the present. :smile:

Re: what's the fundamental difference?

Hi tomamundsen, By attaining Nibbana, do you mean the complete irradication of ones ignorance? Does your use of the word liberation have another meaning?
