The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

Come on dhamma wheelers! 10 more pages and this topic gets to 5 000 posts! :tongue: :twisted: :rolleye: :buddha2:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Dear clw_uk,

While I was writing that post, I felt evil, unwholesome states arising in me yet I continued to write it. And I felt disturbed and disgusted afterwards. I regret writing that post or even posting in this contentious thread. My apologies to everyone.

Clw_uk: We shall have to agree to disagree.

I wish you all happiness.

Clw, you made a lot more sense when you were on your extended vacation..........
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John
