One of his rules is that you cannot quote scripture in the essay (no bible quotes, vedas, suttas, e...

Re: Benefits of fasting...

Fasting is good. Something that can be done on a regular basis is intermittent fasting. The One meal a day program (OMAD) has proven to be very healthy. It is has been practiced for thousands of years from Buddhism and Jainism. https://www.dhammawiki.com/index.php?title=One_meal_a_day The monks and ...

Re: Religion quiz

Just my opinion, but I think the people making these books were trying to capitalize on the popularity of Jesus / Christianity and trying to make a new religion / movement by "rediscovering" new truths from Jesus. IMO, that's bullcrap. How is the "sleeping prophet" behind the Urantia Book any diffe...

Re: Matter is imaginary, therefore I can walk through a wall.

Offhand DNS can probably come up with some Theravadin texts that state the reality of matter faster than I - but I will poke about. Some Buddhists and perhaps some Buddhist schools state that all is illusory, taking the anatta doctrine too far. The world does exist. Samyutta Nikaya 22.94 : “ Bhikkh...

Re: Parshvanatha

Chinese (Chan) Buddhism has a similar reverence for animal life and approval of vegetarianism, but that is just one school, one segment of the much larger religion of Buddhism. Not really - all of Chinese Buddhism promotes and practices vegetarianism, Pure Land etc. (Or they used to, maybe with rec...

His first videos had a higher pitch, I think. He may have slowed the voice speed down, to sound more gravelly.
