Site about the Four Noble Truths contains virus

Postby Stephen K » 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.

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.
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

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.
