I am even not able to abstain from expressing my desire... There is nothing worldly left as chocolate and cheese which could easily bring me to fall.

I thought to join the funny Tibetan-Theravada conversation a little.
Chocolate is in deed a real craving, but to quote child labor as motivation... well there is more danger as in leaving the country side, and who would take care of the needed marijuana plants in the future for the kids?
Just that! *smile*


BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

This is the only place I've ever been in my entire life where people will argue over a piece of chocolate. :tongue:

Are you eating pure chocolate?
Most stuff sold in markets is primarily sugar.

They are both correct in a sense Anna...you are quite correct in that the usual pronuciation is four sylables with the stress on the third, Him a LAY a. but those Brits who have been there there and Brit Tibetan Buddhists tend to say it with three sylables with the emphasis on the second Him AL yass....

Anyhoo back to the topic....I have constant weight issues...but enjoy a bit of chocolate now and then without feeling the need to self flagellate or wring my hands afterwards.
