The only way to prove this is by you becoming one.
Just start this by observing five precepts then the rest will fall into place itself. (obviously you have to associate Kalyanamitta)

Re: Does pornography leads to rebirth in a lower realm?

I think watching porn is a bad action. It is bad action because I feed my mind with something harmful. When I feed my mind with something skillful it is good action. For example practicing meditation is a good action. Reading a sutta is a good action. Well I guess you you have answered your questio...

Re: Question about covid and working

If its already wide spread with tens of thousands of cases are reported every day, then not going to work would not be the best idea unless the laws in your country explicitly require people who tested positive to quarantine themselves. Whose advice is this? Are there any countries that advise to c...

I'll PM Ceisiwr and Mr. Man the manually scanned pages in a bit. If anyone else cannot open it and wishes to, just PM me. It's working now so must have just been a server issue.

Re: What is Dhammakaya?

The issue is they aren't based on Yogavacara. They aren't based on any kind of Buddhist precedent at all. The article I posted above is eye-opening IMO. There is nothing wrong with practicing out of the Yogavacara manual. Wat Dhammakaya is not Yogavacara Buddhism. Hi Coëmgenu The link is not workin...

One can practice Yogavacara methods of meditation without accept the specific Dhammakaya methods and doctrines. The issue is they aren't based on Yogavacara.

Re: Ajahn Dtun (Thiracitto) autobiography, one of great Thai forest meditation masters

Greetings Mr.Man, He did by putting his name to a document that used the # Not for the “organisation”. The organisation is something different but I’m sure you must know that and are just being disingenuous. As was pointed out to you, when you first brought forward the statement bearing his name, t...

Re: Monastics protesting social injustice

Mr Man No it isn't. The # is used by the organisation. Its almost entirely used to refer to the organisation. No it isn't. Do you think the Premier League were referring to the organisation or the cause? If they wanted to tweet support for black people they could have without using the slogan of a ...
