"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Mara didn't actually ruin Buddhism, as I'm sure you know.

SN 4 and 5 are full of Mara tales, which I'll assume you've read. What is the common denominator?

Dear members

At this point I would like to remind all participants to 'play the ball, not the man (or woman)'. That is, engage with the ideas and the arguments and to please refrain from making personal comments. If you cannot engage in the discussion without experiencing akusala dhammas, then perhaps it is best to either hit the report button for blatant breaches of the TOS or walk away.
Thanks for your cooperation.

Ben
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
