Noble path and clima - Dhamma Wheel
A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravāda
Is it possible to keep the presets/and the rules (traditional Theravada) of ordinated people in Countries with 4 seasons, let me say in countries where the temperature can be under 0° C for a longer period?
Just that! *smile*
BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_
I doubt if it was the Buddha's intention to make life difficult or cause undue suffering to the ordained trying to keep to the Vinaya. He already tried asceticism himself and found it wanting. A sensible approach to the four requisites is needed.
