The way I understand Vitakka and Vicara can lead to speech. Only unwholesome speech named as VaciSankahra. The way I understand the speech immediately stops when you start your meditation session. However, Vitakka and Vicara continue. Even in first Jhana, you have wholesome Vitakka and Vicara. It is...

Re: Photo Dharma (Over 15,000 photographs of Buddhist archeological sites)

Sri Lankans (even I) never believed this story of tsunami (one thousand years ago) until we experienced tsunami in 2004. The story is that the king killed an Arahant in a pot of boiling oil after incorrectly suspecting the Arahant had an affair with the queen. The gods punish the king by a way of ts...

Thanks.
Very interesting!
