That type of bad Kamma via the mind I interpret as imagining making love to a married woman or wishing someone dies so that one is rid of ones woes ..retrofuturist wrote: ↑Tue May 22, 2018 5:29 am Greetings No_Mind,
Actually, the Dhamma teaches otherwise.
"Intention, I tell you, is kamma. Intending, one does kamma by way of body, speech, & mind." (AN 6.63)
Taking it as far as a forum is not valid .. I am not present in the forum .. some electrons are.
Such as .. it is impossible to fall in love through forum posts (not forum chat) .. it is also quite impossible to commit bad Kamma through speech in a forum
and even if it is .. I have never called anyone a "pointy eyed dog eater" .. I suggested that would be a nice retort if one is called offensive names by a Chinese.
Never except in the American Exceptionalism thread which got me really riled up .. that was the only time my actions (and consequent reactions) in this forum affected my mind.
