Re: Petition to protect Singaporean Monks

Nyom Gabriella, interested readers, (Sadhu for such a compassioned thought, at first place. Let it be cleaned, purified a little) Just to rethink, put on scale for judgement and actions: 1. Monks and the Sangha do not hold any rights but receive of what is given without string. 2. begging an "haking...

Interesting idea. Why would souls target parents in places of war, poverty, famine, etc? :shrug:
Why beings take birth, even in most worse existences and circumstances?

Re: Doctrinal vs. encouraging to investigation education debate

A non virtuous person, would he/she have the capacity to proper investigation? A non-virtuous person also won't obey. Without the foundation of strong doctrine, clear right and wrong, is a clear utopian idea. By "foundation of strong doctrine" what exactly do you mean? Obedience, submission? Stark ...

Beggar "activism" in depriving "himself" or whom? "Overturning the bowl"

As personal issues are best from deeper reflection, it's not to be seen as "justice" act, but possible a good starter of a discussion of "self-depriving" from future gains: Overturning the bowl Think about your actions not only toward the fruits for you, but also in regard of your relatives.
