Re: Did this modern Russian God create an early Buddhist commune in Siberia???

How is that Buddhist? It appears to be a Christian-based cult. But it appears to be very Buddhist, just listen to what the leader (God) says... Okay, watched it. And still don't see anything Buddhist. He believes in reincarnation, UFOs, that aliens are soulless or something like that, but still ver...

Re: Maha Bodhi Temple Replicas

You are finding so many in Myanmar that it's hard for me to keep up with my Maha Bodhi Replicas page, so in the meantime, I've added this note to my page: There may be at least another 20 or more in Myanmar (Burma), not shown here. For a complete list, including photos, see: https://www.dhammawheel....

Re: Plagarism or copy pasting is stealing?

I have copy-pasted some Suttas to Dhamma Wiki, but only those that are in public domain, offered for free and my distribution is also for free, no charges or money involved.

I don't know who chose that date, but I like it. At least it's in May and almost always Wesak is in May.

It could be a way of "westernizing" the Wesak date, instead of using the Full Moon date.

Ven. Dhammika: While the Buddha understood the mind to be a `flow' or `stream' of mental events (vi¤¤ànasota), later abhidhamma thinkers speculated that it was actually a string of individual thought moments (cittavãthi) arising and passing away at great rapidity. Later still, the theory developed t...
