Re: Are Brahmas still deluded by Mara? + more questions

I remember also was a thread of a member here in dhammawheel about all...

Re: doing retreat

Hi mario92, That sounds great! Have you done any other retreats? If so, you could structure the day along those lines. For me, for self retreats it is important to have some structure worked out - get up this time, chant this time, walk this time sit this time, eat this time. This simplifies things...

Re: Buddhist Schools

Here in the U.K. faith schools can be quite a divisive issue. Some agree with them and like them, others do not. Most of the faith schools here are Christian or Islamic, with a few Jewish schools also. There is also one Hindu school and one Buddhist primary school here (ages 5 - 11). I'm interested...
