Re: Risk of taking vaccine jab

The risk of not taking it is FAR greater than taking it. Therefore, if you are concerned about risk, then you should take it because taking it is less risky. A Buddhist should not risk their life by not taking it. I've taken it, I'm perfectly fine. And now I'm helping to protect the people around m...

Re: The Problem With Hell

What about us who are endowed with virtue? At what point do we discard the warnings of Hell and welcome the prospects of Heaven? The point in which one gains the skill in being able to direct the attention appropriately, which mean you no longer direct it to worrying about things like hell. "And wh...

Re: Signs you will not attain enlightenment ?

So I fear he said my fate with the Sidhi of future prediction. Youre post is very reassuring . My only concern now is if Siddhi skilled individuals can know such a thing? More likely is that he just sees you continually breaking the precepts and breaking the precepts is a great way to not attain en...

Re: what are your thoughts on taking psychotropic medications for mood disorders?

I don't say Buddha is all you need; You said "Buddhas teaching is the best way to control it" when I started talking about my brother That is FALSE. No if ands or buts about it. I tell you to need all your mental capacity. And for a lot of people, taking the medication IS how you get the most menta...

The tenfold unwholesome courses of action could be called the "sins" of Buddhism. :smile:

Re: what are your thoughts on taking psychotropic medications for mood disorders?

They hardly go to the root cause, but focuses in on symptoms and altering the chemical flow in the body. And when the root cause is biological, altering the biology is entirely appropriate. :smile: If there is one who has total knowledge of the flow, then yes, but since there is no one that has it,...

Re: Nibbana. Are we chasing a mirage?

Noble Eightfold Path is the path, not Nibbana. The path is how it's achieved and what you asked is how it's achieved. The answer is the path. You said we don't know what we need. But, we do know what we need. What we need to achieve it is to travel the path that the Buddha himself traveled and then...

Re: Nibbana. Are we chasing a mirage?

How can we achieve something if we do not know what we need? We already do know that. It's the Eightfold Path. This is only the fourth Noble Truth so this alone is not complete. Yet it still answers the question of "how to achieve nibbana". If it wasn't, the Buddha would not have taught it. The Bud...
