  • Greed and karma

    Hi guys,

    Most people (maybe) will recommend a vegetarian or a vegan diet, but the question is:

    Which one is more unwholesome, greed over meat that comes from farmed factory animal (generally more suffering) or greed over meat that comes from animal that lives in the wild (less suffering)? One greedy person eats meat from different sources. Thank you.

  • Our actions and words

    Hello all,

    I have a little question but still quite relevant to the practice. Sometimes in order to make a light joke someone greets his/her best friend by saying good moaning (good morning) or sends a text message to his friend to massage (message) his employer.

    I just want to know what are your thoughts on this? Is this something we need to pay attention to, being aware to what we speak and do e.g. we should consciously speak what we consciously mean, because it affects our consciousness/mind or is this something not worth considering or not to be taken too seriously since it's just a joke? Thanks.
