Re: What is Dhammakaya?

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. Thank you Coëmgenu, I see it is by the former Mettanando Bhikkhu. I remember him from when he stayed at Amaravati in the ...

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...

Re: What is Dhammakaya?

One can practice Yogavacara methods of meditation without accept the specific Dhammakaya methods and doctrines. 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 practi...

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

I am soon finished reading. It has given me a more detailed understanding of this particular way of practice & progression which is seemingly typical to TFT and Dhammayuttika Nikaya. Tnx Hi rightviewftw I believe that Ajahn Dtun was ordained at Wat Nong Pah Pong with Ajahn Chah as his preceptor and...

Re: Monastics protesting social injustice

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 ...

Re: Monastics protesting social injustice

Mr Man Not for the “organisation”. The organisation is something different but I’m sure you must know that and are just being disingenuous. The problem I'm having is that #BlackLivesMatter is used by the organisation BLM. To tweet support for #BlackLivesMatter is to, either directly or indirectly, ...

Re: Monastics protesting social injustice

I have a lot of respect for Ajahn Amaro but its sad to see him still voicing support for the despicable BLM organisation. But he hasn't. Why do you spread untruths on a Buddhist forum. #BlackLivesMatter The phrase "Black Lives Matter" can refer to a Twitter hashtag, a slogan, a social movement, a p...

Re: Monastics protesting social injustice

When monastics, like Ajahn Amaro, who is very busy, say they support Black Lives Matter, I don't think we can assume that they are across all the public facts and details. Rather what they support, is the most public expression of that group, which is that it's high time that Black Americans were t...
