Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

When people I have on my ignore list quote my comment, it triggers a notification. Any way to stop this from happening? Good householder could ignore it unless aversion, rooted in ignorance, comes up faster and gets not traced. (Householder would look what his "enemies" write anyway, so it's then a...

Re: "Gata" translated as "Immersed"

Does Bhante now understand Dear Sāmanera, I'm afraid that since your English is unintelligible to me, I have no idea whether I understand the matter you're asking me about. I suggest that you consider composing your posts in German and then using Google Translate to translate them into English. Tho...

Re: Self protection / killing insects

Sila based on real metta, right view, is the only lasting selfprotection. By harming one gains harm, does neither protect one self nor gives protection to others. It's the protection of the fool, for very short and insecure release from harm.

Re: Kusala and punna

A system has no intention, does no kamma. In English the word "intention" includes not only the act or fact of intending but also the thing intended. And so it is no solecism to speak of the "intention of the criminal justice system". The "intention" here is the end, purpose or telos aimed at by th...
