repeated questions

Postby meenuji2 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 8:59 am

the discussion board has many repeated questions and the topic searching facility is insufficient. I wanted to search the Theravada translation for verse no. 585 but could not do.

Verse number 585 in which Nikaya?

---The trouble is that you think you have time---
---Worry is the Interest, paid in advance, on a debt you may never owe---
---It's not what happens to you in life that is important ~ it's what you do with it ---

I like to use Google to search websites/forums.

for example you enter this into Google for dhamma wheel: "search term goes here"

I agree with contemplating. The search facility in this Forum (and most other Forum software) is generally quite inferior to Google. The Google database may be hours or days out of date, but that's not a problem if you are searching for old topics.

Although it is not on every page. Google saffron is available at the bottom of the home page.
but even google needs precise criteria to render the wanted result.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
