Wisdom (in his present potential) has its end and seams to solve the problem practical. As it is not taught how to handle with modern things in the Teaching we tend to look at solve the problem with our wordly wisdom.
The motivation of the questioner is not to kill. Compassion. There is no intention to let the mosquito just be feed.
Compassion would not lead to a solution like to reject the being in this case. It would effort to look why I dislike, why I reject... So it would bring one back to the practice of dhamma.
Just as an example vowed with opinions
I'm sorry Hanzze, but I really can't understand the point you are trying to make.
But if you are implying that Buddhist teachers don't teach compassion for mosquito's you're not listening to the same teachers that I do.
It would be helpful if you could explain exactly how you think that Buddha recommended practising compassion, backed up with some quotations from the Suttas, and how these methods are misunderstood today.
And I don't mean random examples of monks or laypeople doing things that are clearly against the Dhamma. I, too, could cite plenty of cases of that from experiences in Thailand and elsewhere, and if that's all you mean then there's not much to discuss. Clearly bad things happen all over the place.
But do you think that there are sincere and serious teachers and practitioners misunderstanding the Dhamma today?
