I recommend reading Ajahn Sumedho's 5 volume Anthology, which is available on Amaravati Monastery website.

Re: Mentally ill

Meeting in real life with people who have a serious mental illness can be quite disturbing for most people. I wonder whether that same effect occurs online, where they are represented merely by our interpretations of pixels. It can be disturbing if people get insulting or threatening in their onlin...

Re: How to meditate?

To Vincent.. and your point in picking through a little book I referenced which has been helpful to many people - is what?

Perhaps old age, sickness and death motivate towards the path. Many people chose many different paths unless you are a Buddhist with ...
