2005-01-07 – To Hell With Punishment – In many religions there is an aspect of punishment for not following the teachings of the faith, or questioning the teaching. You may end up in Hell if you dis obey the teacher. In Buddhas teaching there is Kamma. Is it the same thing or is there a difference?
2005-01-09 Sunday Sutta Class – Abhayaraja Kumara Sutta Exposition. In this discourse, the Buddha shows the factors that go into deciding what is and is not worth saying. The main factors are three: whether or not a statement is true, whether or not it is beneficial, and whether or not it is pleasing to others. The Buddha himself would state only those things that are true and beneficial, and would have a sense of time for when pleasing and unpleasing things should be said. Notice that the possibility that a statement might be untrue yet beneficial is not even entertained.
2005-01-14 Stop Trying to Meditate – We all WANT to meditate. When I come in to the picture and WANT to do something we go off track. Not understanding the real meaning of meditation. It is simply something you Can not do. Be an observer not a Doer.
