Johann: No existence, no 'way of life', can excel the finally journey, just 'busy' in given away all of what ever made one's own. A total remorse-less existence. May many go for it, and see the way toward the deathless, no more worry of past, future and present as well.

2023 Jul 20 20:20:43
Johann: Any further open doubts and questions?

2023 Jul 17 21:48:01
Johann: Periodicaly again the urge to do not relay on social medias and to concentrate doing the tasks very bodily on the earth, avoiding the lure of debtless consume and seek to know goodness and just take on what's personal given for good purpose, away from hidden trades and traps. People denying goodness and/or don't know how to pay back and toward whom, simple run crazy and after a while into all kinds of amok.

2023 Jul 17 06:10:00
Johann: A blesed New-moon Uposatha today.

2023 Jun 23 08:50:50
blazer: Good morning everyone  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 21 14:32:05
blazer: It is hard to practice here. I'm in a place where i can get virtually anything in just a few minutes. And ads and distractions are everywhere. And people are so defiled so i have to carefully calibrate social interactions.

2023 Jun 21 13:44:56
Johann: It's not possible to gain Dhamma as long holding stand, home. Once elevating above sensuality, clearance can be gained.

2023 Jun 21 13:20:27
blazer: I'm sorry but i'm not understanding perfectly. How can i ask him for the best further way if he is not reachable directly? And what is meant by "best further way"?  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 21 13:19:05
blazer: Bhante Johann  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 20 17:42:55
Johann: Btw., if your Noble teacher might be no more in reach directly, once you make an effort toward the Brahmas, devoted to the Gems, you might get the chance to ask him about the best further way (note that an Noble Brahma, of cource, would serve lazy or not serious approaches).

2023 Jun 20 17:16:43
Johann: Some may wonder why the Sublime Buddha heavily rebuked monks when they teached the Dhamma of the Ariya, to those not prepeared yet... Once people have gained this Dhamma in wrong way or at wrong time, without favor toward renouncing and or Samvega, they are hardly ever able to gain it right, mostly closed up the door by their unwise ways and approach.

2023 Jun 18 15:32:24
blazer: Good afternoon  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 18 05:55:13
Johann: Likewise, a blessed Uposatha those who observe it today.

2023 Jun 18 00:45:56
blazer: Good to remember, greediness of results becomes a problem in these situations. Thank you  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 17 21:22:34
Johann: See how close he is!

2023 Jun 17 13:04:43
blazer: How can i find such a teacher or an admirable friend right now?

2023 Jun 17 13:00:41
blazer: was not going out since a week because pain, wanted to give a try.

2023 Jun 17 13:00:01
blazer: im very in pain. Went out yesterday evening.

2023 Jun 17 12:51:01
Johann: Nyom, seek to live next a teacher, next admirable friends.

2023 Jun 17 12:27:12
blazer: obviously related to the last post

2023 Jun 17 12:14:49
blazer: I gone out in the evening after a week at home and i'm very hungry, it can be an impedment now and  later. Had to eat yogurt. Should i avoid solid food for good concentration?

2023 Jun 17 12:10:26

Johann: A blessed rest of Sila day, by observing metta toward all beings, by thoughts and deeds.

2023 Jun 11 20:00:38
Johann: Nyom

2023 Jun 11 17:02:02
Moritz: Vandami Bhante _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 11 16:12:49
Johann: There isn't anyone who wouldn't be invited "to come and see" once willing to leave stand, home. For non it wouldn't be of much benefit to give even just a little toward the Gems. Yet less would take on occasion, preferring collecting for a stand, house, when ever access and feeling 'worthy' of it.

2023 Jun 10 20:22:50
Moritz: Best wishes to everyone _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 07 16:29:17
{removed name}1: Hello Atma how are you doing today? Enjoying your holiday in Cambodia?

2023 Jun 07 16:20:57
{removed name}1: Not by shaven head does a man who is indisciplined and untruthful become a monk

2023 Jun 07 16:17:56
{removed name}1: One is not a monk just because one begs from others. Nor does one become a monk by taking on domestic ways.

2023 Jun 07 16:13:41
{removed name}1: Happy 6th industrial revolution everyone🙏

2023 Jun 07 15:27:16
Johann: Else: Atma can only encourage to move the domain back into khema areas of as well as one self, for there in is no future for this people of grave wrong view and wouldn't like anybody to have burdens with lost fools. One can just leave them up to their fixed destination.

2023 Jun 07 15:14:45
Johann: ញោម "Nyom", ñoma - Ursprung bzw. Bedeutung , maybe of help, Nyom, Nyom.

2023 Jun 05 12:44:17
blazer: Hello everyone  _/\_

2023 Jun 03 16:27:58
blazer: Checked time ago, i've seen somewhere translated as a person which is kind of equanimous, or something similar, as far as i can remember. Not finding the webpage right now

2023 Jun 03 15:28:13
Moritz: I think it's related to k'nyom (speaking out the "k" here), which means "I" and is used in normal colloquial language to speak of oneself. So not really sure how this relates to "former relative" etymologically.

2023 Jun 03 15:25:56
Moritz: I think "nyom" means something like "former relative", generally used by monks to address laypeople. Not really sure about the meaning in detail and where it could else be used. :)

2023 Jun 03 15:15:41
blazer: Good day to you Nyom Moritz  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 Jun 03 14:57:17

Seeking proper assosiation
« on: September 07, 2022, 11:45:15 AM »
Ven,
i think i can pass many hours in contemplation and perfect precepts and in solitude if it is good to do so.
Would like to have instructions on how to better behave at this point.
go outside? inside? what to do with the time?

In case i can get informations about a retreat, can choose both in a christian or buddhist monastery/temple

Just gone out.
yesterday returning home, no music, no toughts, void inside, at a point felt a mess coming from everything. intention to move eyes and see a form, to recognize, to see if its desirable, then eventually keep action.
Pattern seen in advice and so destroyed,i tought.
Now tried out with music for a short. eye contact with others 2 times, messy for one's inside. Eyes are not moved without intention. Has been lucid with void inside, serene, a bit, returned.
But felt that its not like at home, secluded. Moving at speed burdens. Music keeps feelings up in specific points on the inside. When i pause, points disappear.
Appealing forms, appealing souds, a burden, explode in the cosmos inside.

Feel urgent need of proper association, helpful to stay away from transgressions, and do practice, and eventually have good advices. Can stay alone in peace but short but awesome interactions would be good my person thinks.
Eventually i can easy contact a monk i met, but must inform Ven that this talk has been inconcludent last time.
Please give guidance, will stay in contemplation at home in the while, calm body, very few activities.
Investigating 6 senses anicca impermanence suffering, calmness, arise and death of cosmos, compassion at times, merit, what else?

Sorry for using this board like a chat, Ven. can suggest better mean.

Atma would hardly ever advice something else then to go forth. Good if finding a far off Theravada monastery which would exept a lay person, 8 Sila or ten, who does some works able to, while practicing.

Better of course, lokking to ordain, at least as Samanera.

It doen't make sense if isolated and in common ways. Most simply increase their confusions.

* Johann : nothing that terrible burdensome, aside surely good and skilful to try to put not to much burden on others. Again, most "disturbing", or improper is "just" facelessness, Nyom blazer .

Considering a far temple may enlong decision, ordination more.
Anyway will make considerations.

Theravada monastery, even in my country? Why not another one?
Is the one of Jieshi Shan a valid one?

Hard to find an environment that holds on right view, at first place, in the West, even under Theravada branch, much lesser elsewhere, Nyom.

How ever: important to move on toward good, and if with right intention, all will at time appear.

Upasaka Sukhavipula just shared record and Intro for some Suttas good to reflect on, as things arise not accidentally but most tendency is what matters for such, as well as change.
Here you are, there have you been, where to settle?

(26) Sattakammapatha - The Seven Ways of Acting

[1] At one time the Blessed One was living in the monastery offered by Anāthapiṇḍika in Jeta's grove in Sāvatthī.

[2] “Bhikkhus, beings get together and agree according to the elements.

[3] “Those destroying living things agree with the destroyers of living things. Those taking the not given agree with those who take the not given. Those misbehaving sexually agree with others who misbehave sexually. Those telling lies agree with others who tell lies. Those slandering agree with others who slander. Those talking roughly agree with others talking roughly and those talking frivolously agree with others who talk frivolously.

[4] “Those abstaining from destroying living things agree with those who do not destroy living things. Those abstaining from taking the not given agree with those who do not take the not given. Those abstaining from misbehaving sexually agree with others who do not misbehave sexually. Those abstaining from telling lies agree with others who do not tell lies. Those abstaining from taking intoxicating things agree with others who do not take intoxicating things.”

(15) Kammaṁ (Caṅkama) - According to Actions (Thoughtfully Walking)

[1] At one time, the Blessed One lived among the Gijjha peaks in Rajagaha.

[2] At that time, venerable Sāriputta was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[3] Venerable Mahāmoggallāna was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[4] Venerable Mahākassapa was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[5] Venerable Anuruddha was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[6] Venerable Puṇṇa Mantāniputta was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[7] Venerable Upāli was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[8] Venerable Ānanda was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[9] Devadatta too was walking thoughtfully in the vicinity of the Blessed One followed by many bhikkhus.

[10] Then the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus:

“Bhikkhus, do you see Sāriputta walking thoughtfully followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus are very wise.

[11] “Bhikkhus, do you see Moggallāna walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus have great psychic powers.

[12] “Bhikkhus, do you see Kassapa walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus observe austerities.”

[13] “Bhikkhus, do you see Anuruddha walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus have developed the divine eye.

[14] “Bhikkhus, do you see Puṇṇa Mantāniputta walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus converse about ethical problems.

[15] “Bhikkhus, do you see Upāli walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus know the discipline.

[16] “Bhikkhus, do you see Ānanda walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus are learned.

[17] “Bhikkhus, do you see Devadatta walking thoughtfully, followed by many bhikkhus?”

“Yes, venerable sir.”

“Bhikkhus, all those bhikkhus are with evil desires.”

[18] “Bhikkhus, beings get together and agree according to the elements. Those with inferior inclinations get together and agree with others of inferior inclinations and those with virtuous inclinations get together and agree with others of virtuous inclinations.

[19] “Bhikkhus, even in the past beings got together and agreed according to the elements. Those with inferior inclinations got together and agreed with others of inferior inclinations and those with virtuous inclinations got together and agreed with others of virtuous inclinations.

[20] “Bhikkhus, even in the future beings will get together and agree according to the elements. Those with inferior inclinations will get together and agree with others of inferior inclinations and those with virtuous inclinations will get together and agree with others of virtuous inclinations.

[21] “Bhikkhus, even at present beings get together and agree according to the elements. Those with inferior inclinations get together and agree with others of inferior inclinations and those with virtuous inclinations get together and agree with others of virtuous inclinations.”
