  • I feel both burkha and bikney dress are absurd. There is no need to hide hair and face. If just hair and face provokes men then it is not understanding. Bikney is too much to wear at public place. It looks ugly.

  • Whenever I seat in bus to reach some place. I feel that every passenger in the bus is contributing by paying running cost of a bus to reach at a destination. In similar way we all need to contribute to reach same goal in life by helping each others.
  • I think it is practice and not a craving to make our habit to be pleasant to everyone even to them who behaved very bad with us. Whenever we are not good for others in our thoughts or action it is harming us more than that particular person. In th…

  • The Buddhist practice is the law of universe actually a Dhamma which we label it Buddhist. Do good and get good in return. You reap what you sow. Therapy is just trying to get good results without deeply realizing the natural law. Try and error k…

  • There is phrase " If you are sane it does not mean everybody around you would be nice". As a layman one has to protect oneself from arrogants who cross there lines. Buddha never rejected self defence and punishing people who does violence.
