Offerings go towards simple living expenses, teaching, and future publishing of Buddhist translations and writings. A major aspect of monastic life is that monks are required to live without handling money. In the west, your offerings provide support in a culture where traditional alms rounds are not practiced for the daily meal, for example. In America, these traditions are culturally very difficult and don't work so well. Donations help venerable to live by traditional ascetic principles, and teach Buddhist philosophy and meditation in a mostly non-Buddhist culture.

Questions and Answers #1

(I apologize for posting this on YT first, but it is very difficult to get anything to upload onto Bitchute lately. I've got four videos, including this one, "processing" in Bitchute limbo as I type this.) Any further questions may be emailed to me or posted under the video. Be happy.

Attention, folks:

I haven't been feeling very well over the past few days and look like hell, but as soon as I'm feeling good (like soon) I'll be doing a video answering questions. I have about 20 questions thus far (most from one person), but if anyone has anything to ask about Buddhism, meditation, Burma/Myanmar, monasticism, mysticism, politically incorrect politics, etc., feel free to ask.

A diagram of a pizza (with cheese bread) that was delivered by a very nice supporter recently. The two monastery cats are an extra added bonus.

ATTENTION EVERYONE

I have been asked to make myself more available for answering questions etc., and the Discord server idea has hit a few technical difficulties (mainly having to do with getting a verified account), so I would be willing to accept questions about Buddhism, meditation, philosophy, or really anything else and then answer them in a recorded video that I would post here on SS. I could do one per month or more frequently than that, depending on how many questions I get. If it becomes popular I might even up the ante to the point of doing livestreams, but I figure we might as well start with this. So if you have any questions you'd like publicly answered, please leave a question in the comments or email me directly. Be happy and have a nice day.

The Wizard Theory

Not sure why this theory isn't more popular than it is. It should pose no problems for orthodox Buddhists anyhow.

Did the Buddha Have Blue Eyes?

Ultimately it has little or no bearing on the profundity of the system, though it is kind of an interesting question. (If it does have any bearing at all on Buddhism's profundity, it would be a matter of blue-eyed "Aryan" westerners finding it so.)

Few people realize that the fascists were much more spiritual than the Marxists. The radical left was anti religion, but the radical right embraced it, even in its deepest forms.

Me vs. Hegel: a conversation with Otto Excelsior

In this video I explain why I consider Schopenhauer to have been pretty much correct in his bashing of Hegel. (an old video made by Otto Excelsior which I have just uploaded onto my new Bitchute channel)

When I would walk for alms in the village of Lay Myay in upper Burma there was a fellow who used to spread his clothes on the ground for me to walk on. Eventually he started following me around and once was even grabbing my legs so I couldn't walk, so some of the villagers took measures to keep him from pestering me. This video is of me walking back towards the cave after collecting a bowlful of food, circa January of 2011.
