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. :)

Ruslan1: I'll make a post in your thread if you don't mind. Can do in a couple hours.

2023 Jun 01 19:25:50
blazer: It would be interesting to have a longer answer, maybe open a topic if needed

2023 Jun 01 19:22:41
Ruslan1: If i was to answer in short. It is a safe bet whereas taking chances with people is more of a risk.

2023 Jun 01 19:07:05
blazer: Nice quote Ruslan, thanks. But for which reasons it would be better for me to dwell alone instead than a monastery?

2023 Jun 01 18:58:17
Ruslan1: "It's not the case, Moggallana, that I praise association of every sort. But it's not the case that I dispraise association of every sort. I don't praise association with householders and renunciates. But as for dwelling places that are free from noise, free from sound, their atmosphere devoid of people, appropriately secluded for resting undisturbed by human beings: I praise association with dwelling places of this sort." -an7.58

2023 Jun 01 18:56:16
Ruslan1: All is good here Blazer, hope your retreat goes well. I would suggest spending time alone in nature instead of going to a monastery tho

blazer: Hello everyone. Is it allright?

2023 Jun 01 03:07:46
Ruslan1: I don't know who is legally liable for the data management on this forum but i strongly advise whoever it is to run this forum in accord with laws governing such operation

2023 Jun 01 02:58:52
Ruslan1: Also keep in mind that this forum us not like DW, it doesn't have Section 230 (Com Decency Act) protection. I could sue you even without the GDPR as you are basically reviling me in public...

2023 May 30 18:06:53
Ruslan1: You have a month to comply before i file a complaint and pursue a ban on processing. Good day.

2023 May 30 17:38:31
Ruslan1: I don't accepts your giving me a guarantee, you keep that guarantee for yourself, it belongs to you Samana.

2023 May 30 08:31:41
Johann: Atma can give Nyom Ruslan a garantie that he will not fnd away to prevent himself from the lowers realms. A person guaranteed to destruction. Nobody can help a fool.

2023 May 29 16:31:55
Ruslan1: I've sent a "gdpr compliance request" to samana johann's sangham.net email, i used an email not registered to this account. I am posting here to confirm that it is a legitimate request.

2023 May 19 12:53:17
Johann: May all spend a blessing Uposatha New moon based on metta.

2023 May 15 18:40:18
Johann: Once uncontrolled emotions and angry birds have entered the fake liberation disguise, it's a quaranty that they even destroy their whole kind by increasing the killing and battle fields. Long is the pain for those approving wrong for a "good".

2023 May 14 22:12:29
Johann: And what are the joys like snares? Release on joy in Sign is a snare, ...sound is a snare..., smell, taste, bodily touch, release by joy over ideas is a snare, leading to birth, aging, sickness, death and seperation, again and again.

2023 May 14 22:07:54

2023 May 14 22:06:42
Vilā: ការបានរូចខ្លនពីអន្ទាក់ ជាភាពរីករាយ។ ពួកគេនឹងជាប់អន្ទាក់ដោយ សារឃើញនុយ ដែលចូលចិត្ត

2023 May 14 21:40:43

2023 May 12 07:26:55
Johann: A blessed Uposatha- observing this Sila-day.

2023 May 11 22:36:00
Johann: A great lesson, reminder, to reflect on sport by Nyom Gernot, once Atma still was a child: "If they would give out 22 balls on the soccer field, they would not need to fight over one." It might help Dhammika to see the dangers of games and sports.

2023 May 11 22:30:12
Johann: Not-knowing being the cause of wrong deeds, knowing so, how could a Dhammika ever have a thought like "this is an enemy". The Brahmaviharas don't have a place for 'but' and exclusion all around.

2023 May 09 14:38:28
Johann: Nyom Gernot

2023 May 09 14:37:32
Johann: Doubt that there isn't more sublime pleasure and peace to be found when going forth, living the Brahmacaria.

2023 May 09 14:36:31
Johann: The same: fear of losing sensual pleasure and arising of doubt, Nyom.

2023 May 09 14:28:04
Moritz: Hard to understand context. I will try to understand more later. Now must go back to work stress. _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

2023 May 09 14:12:54
Johann: Good to encourage Nyom Vila likewise she once did when doubts on the path in Nyom Moritz arose and he seeked to go back into the war zones of the world.

Vilā: 😒

2023 May 05 16:44:26
Johann: A man said: "The worst peace is better then war." Actually any peace isn't war. And violence for what ever reason can never be justified. That why the one putting away weapons always wins, not to speak of those follow him right after, right here and yet. How can one, for the sake of own ignorance, encourage even others to fight and kill and lead others to wrong doings and into hell. Violence is never overcome by violence, but by non-violence. This is an eternal law. The law of not giving any flame only a little fuel. Etena saccena suvatthi hotu. Ratana Sutta

Johann: May all spend a peaceful and liberating Vesakh Puja Uposatha by means of letting go of desires to control the world of senses and dwell within the Brahma-realms.

2023 May 03 23:24:59
Johann: Global holocaust... not 'just' WW, initiated by "tech revolution" as means... May all strive consciously for what's beyond struggles and gains in this world, how ever ease it might still be perceived by most. May all, by their right choices, find and develop firm Refuge into the Gems, gain a footing toward the deathless timely.

2023 Apr 25 11:45:25
blazer: This is fantastic and more! It was great to see someone training in austerity, solitude, aiming for liberation, someone having some urgency to leave for a simple life. This encounter have left me a bit sleepless, many sensations and toughts have arisen. Will write a few lines soon.  _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

Johann: Like a former leader of an large Asian country shortly encouraged his folk: if they withdraw from us, just copysteal all, organize a downloader and simply download it and share it for free.... Well than: may you find the way to happiness with ease by yourself. No slightest hope for any having fallen into the range of people with grave wrong view and deluded after pseudo-liberality (free plunder). Atma would say all for good here. No more need for it, because Sangha has gone.

Down to earth - [Ganz bodenständig] manussaloko / Re: Contacting a monastery
« Last post by Ruslan1 on June 02, 2023, 08:20:06 PM »
Unfortunately i currently have leg and back pain which makes it difficult. My walking capabilities are limited and i need resources to be not too far from me. It is for sure a limit. I would like to know more anyway.

The hot season starts soon and the highland will be very nice as it is quite a lot cooler and more humid compared to the lowland.

There is a camping place in La Gomera, €3/day to set up a tent, i haven't been there but it has all the comforts you'd need incl a restaurant, laundry, garbage, showers. It's in the highlands and you could stay there or close to it. I imagine it would be busy in the season but there is a lot of ancient forest around. Camping La Vista it's called.

Id also look into maybe getting a walking staff or two. The good thing here is that you wouldn't need to pack more than a 40-60l backack.

I won't recommend anything else because everything else here has moderate to difficult terrain.

There should be no snakes, spiders, scorpions or dangerous animals. There is one kind of a spider which is slightly toxic, Noble False Widow, i haven't seen any of those.

Thanks for the advices.
I would like to try the life alone in nature.
Unfortunately i currently have leg and back pain which makes it difficult. My walking capabilities are limited and i need resources to be not too far from me. It is for sure a limit. I would like to know more anyway.
I think it would be also important to meet some good members of the Sangha and confront myself with real buddhists.
As Ven. johann suggested Muttodaya, i'm quite confident there could be good chances for it, so i'm probably going to move in this direction.

The effects of drugs set aside,

Where do you find these highly skilled meditators?

I've never seen anybody sit without moving beyond 4-8 hours.

I knew one person who revealed that he could sit 8-10 hours consistently for a while, form jhana, and i've heard from someone who knows someone who revealed that he can sit 10-12 hours without moving and doing these sittings back to back as to sit 24+ this also in rupajhana.

Other than this i've only seen for myself one person sit 4-8 hours and doing so consistently day after day but this guy also pissed himself whilst doing so...

Actually i don't know, i think it is difficult.
I'm not convinced meditation sitting length is the only parameter of evaluation. Maybe it is a parameter, personally i prefer to talk with the person about the jhanas, listen to his dhamma understanding and watch his behavior to get an idea of its development.

It is a matter of
1) how much samadhi diminishes
2) the skill of the person

Over a certain point there is so much skill that the mind and the body works truly differently and are differently affected by various kinds of stress, which includes intoxicants. Not only i can speak by direct experience, but years ago i also read a few researches about drugs and highly skilled meditators, which i guess could still be found online.
The most developed are just slightly affected by stuff like cannabis or other psychoactive drugs, on reasonable limits, in ways that are not manifest or significant in their behavior and speech.

Of course cola and smoking has its downsides on health, anyway :-)
