I am looking for any live streams for dharma talks or any talks related to buddhist values/teachings. I currently watch Buddhist Society of Western Australia on youtube but can never make their livestreams due to the time difference (I am in eastern US.) If anyone here knows of any monasteries that put on live streams, could you please let me know? submitted by /u/Positive-Analysis929 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Doesn’t the 3rd noble truth negate the 1st noble truth?

Buddhist rookie here, I’ve just been reading up on the basics of Buddhism because I spent some time in a Buddhist community and was very inspired by the people there. I’m not trying to bait anyone or to start an argument, I’m just trying to understand. My understanding of the four noble truths is: 1) Life is suffering 2) Suffering comes from attachment 3) It is possible to escape suffering 4) The way out of suffering is through the eightfold path (or I guess we could just say non attachment) If we start by saying suffering is unavoidable, why would we follow up by saying how to avoid it? If w ..read more

According to the first moral precept, involvement in the death of any animal is immoral, the fifth precept also states that meat is an intoxicant to the body.

Will I go to Hell, for punching my grandfather?

I was listening to some of the Buddha's teachings, and they were listing some things that people do, that are guaranteed to wind you up in Hell. One of the things was killing your own parents, and an extension of that was, there was even a man who went to Hell for striking his own mother. For some context, so you don't think I actually wanted to hit him. My grandfather, was not a food person at all. I got picked on a lot, and bullied throughout my school years, and never stood up for myself. One day, I was at his house, and he had a field behind it. I was in middle school at the time, and he ..read more

If I (Chinese) were to marry my Muslim boyfriend and the resort is to be Muslim on paper, is that a sin? He is an atheist, so we both wont be practicing Islam; I would still want to practice Buddhism as usual. Edit: In our country, legally a Muslim can only marry Muslim. He is Malay hence auto born Muslim, not like he chose to be submitted by /u/princxsshoney [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
