Re: Risk of taking vaccine jab

In any case, how it happened is irrelevant now. It's like arguing about the science of global warming when a tidal surge is lapping at your door, due to rising sea levels. We have to deal with it. No we don't have to deal with it, best is to forget it. Hopefully this topic is banned from dhamma for...

Re: Risk of taking vaccine jab

Covid could be a bioweapon. And vaccination is its second edge in case some fail to get infected. Not an effective bio weapon, because it mainly kills elderly people who are not economically active, or fit for military service. Perhaps the intent is to change the perception that we would see someth...

Re: How do you imagine beings of other realms?

The Pali "paraloka" means "other world" rather than "next world". For example, due to kamma, such as addiction to drugs, one can proceed to a hell world of pain, trauma & degeneration. The Pali word for "nihilism" means "not believe in goodness & its benefits". "Nihilism" does not mean believing th...
