just create a poll to vote:

- inspiring story
- fake
- i dont know

for me theravada means practical practices to come and find out, not stories.... but sometimes stories are really inspiring also, like the story about a monk who carried a woman to the other side of river and his colleague noticed it later and he replied i put that there but you still carry it on...

It's a sad truth that when a student loves their teacher, they'll convince themselves to believe just about anything their teacher says.

How can you doubt your teacher when he has taught you so much truth and wisdom? When you see he has so much more experience than you?

When are you supposed to have faith in your teacher's knowledge and experience, and when are you supposed to be skeptical of him?

If he says something you do not believe, then does that mean you may have been convinced of other falsehoods?

Is it better to just have complete faith and avoid all doubt?

WOW....I am amazed at the attacks on fabianfred .

I didn't see anything wrong with the story, in fact I think it had a message that we could all learn from.

You can attack me for supporting fabianfred if you want, and it wont bother me one bit.

And what difference does it make if fabianfred is ordained or not? Does that mean we should treat him different than any other sentient creature.

Wow...I cant believe some of the non-buddhist behavior from not only this forum, but other so called Dhamma forums as well.

I may be a lot of things, I may not be enlightened...but I am not mean.

All living and non-living in this world and entire universe and beyond is a form of energy . All these energy are not pure but moving towards a pure / sound energy of emptiness ...free of any feeling / emotion etc.....THE BUDDHA .

Buddha is not human or in any form , in any shape or in any awareness.....Buddha is pure....EMPTINESS ....
Siddharta found Buddha from his fear of old,sick , death and fear of not knowing . He understood Buddha and all Pollutant , in human case call "life"....he understood these so call suffering and he did not feel any suffering after he found Buddha .
Therefore ALL SUFFERING SHOULD END AFTER SIDDHARTA FOUND BUDDHA . i belief he was WRONGLY QUOTED...thay is why suffering continue till now.....


Buddha is NOT FAKE . In Buddha is empty..pure without any emotion , no right or wrong ......nothing without any pollutant.

I always belief in Siddharta search .....if you sincerely observe nature you could see Buddha is in all. Sincerely give love , share love and accept love , DO NOT -fear to learn , fear to share , fear to accept you will move to higher awareness .

You know surely.

You are expressing , in limited English, a pastiche of Mahayana views . This is a Theravadin website....I am not psychic but I foresee problems.

The Theravada view is that the Buddha was an historical person...not an abstract principle or supersoul, and that his teaching is best preserved in the Pali Canon. If you want to come to an understanding of the Theravada then you need need at least some knowledge of the Canon...where you will find what the Buddha said his own teaching was about.

sir , I belief that siddharta dead for thousand of years ....even his actual year of death still in question or his last meal. I dont read monk's book but I like gossip about his life just like I gossip about Micheal Jackson .

BUT ....I want to belief as little of the so call teaching as possible because no one can be sure what is actual .
I belief his fear , his search and his finding of Buddha . I belief is his wish we explore and continue to find answer. I belief he was wrongly quoted that cause suffering to continues.....

I dont wish to believe work of monk is associated with Buddha ....infact no one can claim ...all of us are too far from Buddha..simply because each of us human , animal ,plant , virus and non-living is equal ....and in some way expressing Buddha spirit..sorry in advance
