Banner for example, is that a kind of killing?

What do you think Mr. Gordo, is killing right or wrong?

That is why we need to be careful when we use right and wrong.

From my view, there is no different between take somebodies life or banner him. But it would not have that much unwholesome effects on whom who is bannered. For those who banner, it will come again and again.

The problem is to believe in a task ratter than to letting go of them and make space for compassion.

Oh, and even the Buddha killed - do you remember what?
Just that! :-)

Dear friends,

While I am writing here, I am aware of that I am killing.
When ever there is a name of what we are killing it will have unwholesome effects.

Stay natural and mindful.
Just that! :-)

There is no killing as there must be death . There is only regret of action .

With complete respect Mr. Gordo, no offence.

Firstly, being in a buddhist forum, it is only wise to be nice as we are all or at least most of us are nice people. Patience is what we are to cultivate, anger, hatred and harsh speech should not be tolerated.

Secondly, you proclaiming yourself as a buddhist, I think it would be disgraceful to let others see your actions. Your words are a reflection of your cultivation and practice.

Come on everyone, we're buddhists, oh no, I mean we're PEOPLE. BE NICE!

Namo Amituofo!
With metta.
