Site about the Four Noble Truths contains virus

Postby Upasaka Sumana » Tue May 19, 2009 3:33 pm

After Googling ""summary of the four noble truths" and following the first link: (don't open it!) "www.serve.com/cmtan/buddhism/fournt.html" my antivirus detected a virus.
Do not think lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not think lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

—Gotama Buddha, Dhammapada 121-122

Thanks for the warning! The person who created that website obviously doesn't understand that he is creating a great deal of bad kamma for himself.
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

It may not be intentional.

Opera gave me a warning before opening the site:

Code: Select all

Haute Secure has inspected this site and have found issues which pose a security risk to you. To stay out of harm's way, don't visit this site.


But on my PC it would be harmless. I'm using Linux. :smile:
With best wishes

Only in a vertical view, straight down into the abyss of his own personal existence, is a man capable of apprehending the perilous insecurity of his situation; and only a man who does apprehend this is prepared to listen to the Buddha's Teaching.
