I had dreams of walking across Thailand in monk robes sixteen years ago. Maybe someday I will do that.

I like to discuss on the last precepts of the 5 precepts which is intoxication.
The underlying of this precept is the consequences that the intoxication will give rise to loosing our sati / mindfulness.
Question is whether 1 or 2 pints would break the precept
And the reason for this ' defilement ' is for a domestic cause of catching up with a family member.
Appreciate your Dhamma insight
Please post your question in the particular category such as "General Theravada""

No, there is no such thing as a good intention in causing harm. In Buddhism, the means justify the ends, and not the ends justify the means. Therefore committing bad actions never justifies the ends. Purposely going to a lower plane is incredibly foolish and it means you have wrong view, which means you're not a Buddhist, you are an outsider (Bahiro) and don't belong in the Sangha.

Welcome!

:namaste:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don’t cling to it. Whether it’s like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don’t try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That’s all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ‘us’ nor ‘them’. None of them are worthy of clinging to.

Tarot and Karmic Readings

Post by Chew SK »

Friends,

Though this is not inline with the Dhamma teachings with such things like palm, tarot and birth dates readings.
There is some truth in it experienced whether by co-incidents or somehow.
I hold on to Buddhist teachings in the Dhammas but at times of troubles and difficulties, these ' readings ' in the past flashes back.
And it tallies with the situations we are in.
Your thoughts please
