Re: Body Odor stinks to high heaven

Before we reflect on this good or bad question of sex let me tell you a joke. This guy from Finland went to a brothel and as he was coming out of the room another customer impatiently waiting outside asked him, "Are you finished?" He was surprised and answered,"Yes I am, how did you know that?" Ok ...

Re: Body Odor stinks to high heaven

Sex is good and bad both at the same time. Good or bad for what purpose? Why it is good and why it is bad for you? "Good and bad" is an intresting deep question, if you want we can reflect on it together ;) Before we reflect on this good or bad question of sex let me tell you a joke. This guy from ...

Re: Body Odor stinks to high heaven

Oh, no I don't stink that's for sure. I have a feeling I smell like the devas. How do devas smell , ah well, sweet pleasant smell like a ripe peach. On top of that from time to time a hormone makes my body odor attract the opposite sex and they like to have sex with me. At times I had to keep away ...

Re: Is this wrong perception?

I don’t think having wrinkled clothes and looking slobbish is commendable. I think garlic is healthy. I like onions myself and will add for that reason. Try not to over complicate things. I hope you are following Buddha's teaching. Why do you think Buddha wore discarded clothes patched together to ...

Re: Is this wrong perception?

Re: Body Odor stinks to high heaven

I hope I can talk about "Body Odor" here, since it is connected to wellness. Today when I was on the train some passengers(a couple) walked pass me and the body odor was so bad. Imagine the odor sting my nose, yes it is that bad. Do they(a couple) know that their body odor really stinks? May be the...

Re: Is this wrong perception?

Recently I stopped ironing my trouser. Why? Because I became aware ironing my trouser serves no purpose. Who is going to look at my trouser? And when it comes to my cooking I stop buying garlic, onions etc., because if I am really hungry i don't need any onions I will just fry the fish and eat it. ...

Re: How do I know that the Abhidhamma is not a mental fabrication?

The abhidhamma, and the dhamma for that matter, is, yes a fabrication. Although it is tricky, because the dhamma is a fabrication which leads to the end of fabrications. :anjali: There are sutta references for this but I don't have them on hand. Interesting dharmacorps, interesting.

Re: Luang Pa Liem on anger

Ajahn Sek (a Thai monk from WPP currently staying at Abhayagiri in California) recently shared a story for reflection; here it is from memory: Luang Pa Liem was walking around the monastery with Aj. Sek as his attendant when they came across an outhouse on the path. LPL went inside, presumably to u...

Re: Body Odor stinks to high heaven

A facetious response: if people really do "stink to high heaven", how do the devas there respond? You didn't know? The Devas when they meet you will ask you to take a shower and then they will smell your arm pits to check. If it smells they send you back to earth because heaven is a nice place not ...

Re: Mara and Satan

One way they are different is that Mara is a deva, if you see him as an actual being, that is. Mara is a deva in paranimmita-vasavatti deva (Devas wielding power over others’ creations). Although, this might be another similarity in that many monotheists contend that Satan is a fallen angel. Metaph...

Re: Is Buddhism strictly monogamous?

Where is this country that you are living where there is so much sex? Men are greedy they just want more women and they are enjoying sex with different women which is an illusion that they are not aware of. Sex without real love will not last. Even with real love it doesn't last that long. Everythi...
