Re: Yeshi's really back!

I received a PM by Vasana, asking for to unlock this topic in order to add a video that contains a comment by Yeshi on this topic. I thought, Vasana was willing to post it himself, but now he doesn't log in since days. I think quoting him here will have the same effect. Hi Ayu, Here is the video. ht...

Re: Synchronicity

It seems to me the Universe is somehow 'alive' and interconnected, in a way, for instance, that I am talking to someone, or I am thinking about something and I immediately hear something from the TV or other media, or from another person even, what seems like a direct response to my thoughts. I kno...

Re: Buddhism on laymen having two wives.

But I think, the matter is not only about numbers of wives or husbands. The real ethical issue is, if all participants in this polygamy agree to the situation and are fine with it. This is happening, but it's not guaranteed. In many countries it is common that the women are suppressed, they cannot d...

Guys, this topic is difficult to moderate. We cannot interfere in so many disagreements and remove off topic and metaduscussion all the time,because we have lives in meatspace This is just my personal opinion as moderator.

Re: Direct perception of interdependent origination

I assume that it was easier to practice shamata in former times, because in modern times there is more constant distraction.

Re: Permanent/Static phenomena as unconditioned

I'm no good scholar, but reading your post I wonder what things do you think are permanent? Examples? Often, the shastras only want to point out what Nagarjuna stated in the first shastra of the Middle Way () : I salute the Fully Enlightened One, the best of orators, who taught the doctrine of depen...

But there are very inspirations as nectar by the masters, which are more then useful to share, to inspire. Because these days, wisdom is what gets only attention.

Re: prayers for mom, please

I believe, if you improve and become stabilized, your mom will become very happy.

The strong willingness not to harm her again is ...

Re: Questions on Meditation

Those ideas sound foreign to me. What is your source? I was told, the common breath meditation that calms the mind and that is recommended especially for beginners has to be performed freely. The breath is not being forced, just observed. So, there's no question about long or short breath in this co...

Re: 5 minute meditations?

Baby steps are even better than starting with an overwhelming program. Continuity is much more important than longish sitting as a beginner. E. g. I started with 2 min meditation in the morning and in the evening every day. Establishing a meditation habit is a process that could be celebrated with a...
