  • Re: Buddhists and Guns

    The only good thing about owning a gun and not using it, is that it stops some other person owning it - and using it.

    Other than that, I think they're frankly a testimony to how many victims each gun might have created.

    lobster, I'm willing to try out new and different things. I dont think there is any kind of meditation I cant do. Im just starting off tho so i dont know many types of meditations. Yes I am a college student but i have the mornings free if that helps

    Remember that Buddhism is not something you incorporate into your Life.
    Buddhism - IS Life. Every moment, whether during a free morning, or at college, is a moment ripe with practice. You can meditate in a busy dining hall just as much as you could sitting in the sunshine, under a tree. It's a question of stilling that Monkey Mind and focusing on that mental silence which is both nourishing and calming.

    Buddhism is something that adopts you. You don't adopt it....
