“Dhammapada v. 117. Should a person commit evil, let him not do it again and again. Let him not find pleasure therein, for painful is the accumulation of evil.”
My apologies for the recent lack of posts and updates, I was seriously ill last month and am currently convalescing. I plan to begin adding material again sometime next month, but until then, be well, be at peace, and be free from fear.
An interesting and thought-provoking post has been placed on Searching For God about the current political situation and ‘Religious War’. It is a somewhat angry post but he raises some very valid points. Religious war is a very sensitive topic, but the political elite have grabbed it by the reigns and uses the notion for their own ends. This article outlines what those ends are and the pointlessness of the death and destruction the results from it.
I suggest you take a look so long as you do not have any extreme view points.
May ALL beings live in peace.
Audio is coming to *Dhamma!! I have found a source of public domain Theravada lectures that I plan to make available on this site. The ones I have lined up are by the Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, an eminent Buddhist Scholar and Pali expert who is responsible for a mountain of valuable publications.
The audio quality is very poor by todays standards. The only equipment they had back in the early 1980’s was a standard cassette recorder, and it was the master tapes that were used to make copies for distribution, however, once you get used to the 1980’s technology, the lectures are perfectly okay to listen too. After all it is the content that is important, and the series of lectures I will be providing are excellent for the novice Buddhist.
Anyway, I will be working over the next couple of days on how to best present this very valuable material, so until then…
May you all live in Peace.
