Bhante. Formal good to prepear yourself that Bhante wouldn't be in between failing in regard of Vinaya or in regard of Dhamma.A. Bhikkhu wrote: ↑Thu Nov 24, 2022 2:41 amHow many vassa do you actually have now? Just asking so as to know proper way of addressing etc.
There are three kinds of Seniors usually not paying respect, even if just a Samana in front: 1. fools holding identification cards of all kinds. 2. Those not knowing that he speaks Dhamma Vinaya 3. Those firm in Vinaya and/or Arahats.
My person left about 12 years ago as Pabbajito, and is not within you community regulations. But may Bhante know him as one who knows paths and places he would hardly ever get aware.
As there are no rules telling it's a fault to carry guns.There is no vinaya issue when speaking publicly about factors of offences in general, but if you feel not comfortable, leaving the topic aside for now is also fine with me.
Don't yours have, because of the destructive dangers, not very exact rules on how to address, speak, regard... on manners of Vinaya? Don't yours not even walk in the sphere of Sg and pc when open the moth foolish?
And instead do apply the meaning proper, yours walk around naked and annoying in the public... for favors and for elevations.
Is it wise to think that one knows oneself, others wouldn't see what I don't see? A foolish child also thinks that his father goes for harm. Good to consider of whom addresses one very serious.As I see it, you are very concerned about the purity of the sāsana, which is commendable (I am also concerned about the same), but I think your constant ad hominem attacks and character judgments on people (even bhikkhus) you don't even know (now here you make incorrect assumptions about how...
So he's not aware that one not bearing the attributes of an Arahat has to stay in dependency a lifetime, and also not what the compassionate motivated Commentaries have to say.I have spent my first five years as a monk without nissaya) will create a lot of unnecessary suffering and conflict for yourself. The intention is one thing, but you also need to consider the outcome.
It's because those not proper to leave Nissaya act like fools, have no father to tame them and are hardly ever to disciple. Not to speak of former wanderer of other sects, who prefer to relay on the Sangha (google + co.)
It's good that Bhante sees the huge sacrifices of those not fearing to lose reputations or what else. Yet, instead to apply it proper, Bhante uses it as defend.Someone once told me about some evangelical preacher. He started lecturing the people (actually shouting at them) who frequented the Khao San Road, Bangkok, that they would be going to hell due to their debauchery. People started, when I remember correctly, to throw things at him and probably later, I can imagine, took a drink or two more to forget about this fellow who abused them. He might have been factually right in his statements, but he disregarded the how to and thought of himself as morally superior, not a good mix for living in harmony with people and influencing them for the better. For that reason, perhaps, the Parivāra mentions that people in authority within the saṅgha shouldn't use force. Bottom line: Critiquing is good, but only at the right time and place and considering the outcome, also speaking kind words.
No idea where Bhantes mind run astray.We cannot say that when they have disrobed that they are still alajji, automatically, for the rest of their lives. Some have lived a good monk's life as a whole, but have made only one serious mistake (i.e. committed a pārājika); those are not the same as the ones associated with the saṅgha by theft, i.e. continuing to wear the robe deceptively, such as after knowingly committing a pārājika.
My person does not think it's worthy to "beat death dogs", but when seeing some on the way toward decay, it's a matter of duty and care of fellows, children.
Ordaining means to decide to get bond by the Gems to let them disciple one's delutions and improper ways away. It's not about a ticket to go after one's ideas by using Sublime reputations off.
Bhante was not once addressed direct, not once invited to get things fixed in proper sphere... but he prefers to be "pseudo-liberal" and to remain a public symbol of Alajii, association with Alajii and justification of Alajii, in the common modern manner of villages seeking after coupling and freedom to take.
It's a mass, this consumer and hobby monks. Yet Bhante might have left some potential toward the Noble Domain, of which most haven't. But by seeking always gain, presents, fame and travel-checks, he tends to associated with Alajii, here, and there.
But as it has no nourishing soil here and there, it's much better if leaving your kind alone again, as there is hardly any serious with even the conducts of a new gone forth. It's just burdensome and total out of your's sphere, as not wishing and willing to leave home/stand but look for ease livelihoods and trades.
People love to watch fights, get customer by it, wouldn't provide monks proper places, wishing to have them under control.
Bhante is heardly/heartly invited to go after a oneway ticked here, in the land of wonders. And it's all given and not bond into the world.
Whould he be willing to leave home, abound the freedom gained by "rights" trade, become a non-returning beggar, like he once started by still trapped. Whould he like to enjoy the freedom of those having left, the freedom of Dhamma-Vinaya, the Arahats? Neither do they use vehicles, nor shoes, nor anything else that's far off metta, far of not a burden for others, many, even not given.
It's impossible to gain even basic right view when resisting in outer areas, and usually they just waste of their old merits, waste off scared heritage, knowingly or not at all aware.
