There is no self on the ultimate level, i.e. there is no fundamental, uncompounded, immutable essence that is self; but relatively speaking, there is a self in terms of there being a compounded continuum that functions and experiences.

You're giving out Dharma advice with a name like that? Is this a joke or something? :rolling:


It would seem even odder to judge a person based on his screen name rather than on the content of his post. Besides that, I think you'll find our friend "thug4lyfe" isn't exactly being serious about the thug thing.

I have a dream that one day all men and women on Dharmawheel will not be judged on their usernames, but on the content of their posts.

She is alive, the infection seems to be getting better, so maybe the wound will heal.

Glad to hear the news is positive. (Only just catching up on threads and just caught this one, so i am a bit late.) I don't know about rabbits much - but I know that pigeons, dogs, cats all react favorably to some types of music. It might help relax the rabbit if you knew what type it responded to. Unfortunatel;y, I am not an expert on Rabbiots to suggest a genre/performer.... :shrug: (but if anyone ever has any pigeon problems.. I know just the thing to calm and relax a sick pigeon.)

May she bunny bounce her way to a most fortunate rebirth. Little Padme has, I think, been he the focus of much caring, and has been fortunate enough to be exposed to virtuous thoughts and Dharma. You have done a marvellous thing, Inge, and one day Padme will thank you for it.
