Paññobhāsa Bhikkhu

Born John David Reynolds in Seward, AK, he was ordained in the Burmese Taungpulu Forest tradition of Theravada Buddhism in 1991 and spent 18 years in Burma, most of that time in forest caves. He returned to the US in May 2011, and is experimenting with the possibility of living as an independent monk in the West. He has specialized in meditation, monastic discipline, and the subtleties of Buddhist philosophy, and is willing to teach those who are interested.

So Bhante finally run back to Burma, as my person understands.

http://politicallyincorrectdharma.blogspot.com/2017/06/why-i-am-starting-this-blog.html

Being obiviously slowly - but nevertheless Bhante seems to realize a little, while the most do simply not - Bhante might be to slow to realize that the global darkness, ensnared in strong wrong view, has already reached Burma as well.

Bhante might waste his preciouse time willing to rescue Samsara and the Dhammas last generation.

Since taking on an google-account is really not proper, even if trying to write a fellow, my person trust, that Bhante Paññobhāsa will get the message here, not only physical, and maybe will remember my persons approch and his words while he was to busy in US.

Bhante is how ever still and always welcome to make use of the given enviroment and my person will not be greedy in showing how much mirror Bhante actually faces and that it would be very urgent to "kill" the pseudo liberal hero in himself. To speak in Ajahn Chah's words:

Mange

The Buddha said, "Monks, did you see the jackal running around here in the evening? Did you see him? Standing still it suffered. Running around it suffered. Sitting down it suffered. Lying down it suffered. Going into the hollow of a tree, it suffered. Going into a cave, it felt ill at ease. It suffered because it thought, 'Standing here isn't good. Sitting isn't good. Lying down isn't good. This bush isn't good. This tree hollow isn't good. This cave isn't good.' So it kept running all the time. Actually, that jackal has mange. Its discomfort doesn't come from the bush or the tree hollow or the cave, from sitting, standing, or lying down. It comes from the mange."

You monks are the same. Your discomfort comes from your wrong views. You hold onto ideas that are poisonous and so you're tormented. You don't exert restraint over your senses, so you blame other things. You don't know what's going on inside you. When you stay here at Wat Nong Pah Pong, you suffer. You go to America and suffer. You go to London and suffer. You go to Wat Bung Wai and suffer. You go to every branch monastery and suffer. Wherever you go, you suffer. This comes from the wrong views that still lie within you. Your views are wrong and you hold onto ideas that are poisonous in your hearts. Wherever you go you suffer. You're like that jackal.

Once you recover from your mange, though, you can be at ease wherever you go: at ease out in the open, at ease in the wild. I think about this often and keep teaching it to you because this point of Dhamma is very useful.

If Bhante has lost or forgotten his given accessibility here, he might tell it, either by email or by posting as guest, so that such could be solved.

Bhante Paññobhāsa might think that my person approach has no urged reason. Well he would not be the only one maybe underestimating his approach and urging. How ever, in regard of the spoken: Here we are, right from Burma: Mingun Jetawan Sayādaw: Can an Extinct Bhikkhunī Sangha Be Revived? .

Splitters, fools and "heros" will distroy the holly lifes possibility and the Sangha withing this generation. So you are wise to be aware that you could be one of the last generation or another fool who will turn and burn, like the monk on you blog for eons.

Thanks Upasaka maranadhammomhi for providing this little sample and if the motivation for it was right, this message you just got here is eigher the blessing of the good deed done or the pain of acting unwise. Even in secound case it could still turn out to become a blessing.

So also you are urged and leave the fools the quicker the better behind and walk on as long possible.

Place and people require upanissayapaccayena. Knowing that, one is wise to have gratitude with ones earlier good deeds when things appear in a helpful way and not a matter of accident.

Bhante, why does Bhante think that he had translated  THE AṬṬHAKAVAGGA and carried this reminder related to the current state?

It looks like as if the messages have not reached Bhante Paññobhāsa , at last not mental.

While not strictly against way and stand, but knowing also the danger of taking stand, even fighting one thesis with another, my person likes to continue to "go in between" and pick up certain things and possble comment them.

There are some respect worthy replies and of course allready frontiers. One thing, and that is most sad, is that Bhante does not a little argue with Dhamma, while others try, but uses philosophy to fight philosophy, view with view.


Interesting observations, but what/who exactly are you trying to fight with? And from Burma? Freedom of speech is still allowed. Political correctness in some places of the US could be over the top, but I haven't seen a single guy being stopped from accomplishments in science, arts, Buddhism, or whatever because of feminism. Are you having a hard time being a monk because of the feminism? Do you feel like a lesser man, human being? Were you "politically" corrected and that offended you? Would you want to bring time back into the certain style of society from the past? Different people fight for different subjects they feel it's needed: some for women's rights, some for racial, some for the animal... Before it gets into balance often the weight moves scales to the other side for a while... And maybe that's what you're doing too – trying to balance. But just curious, why THIS after 20 years in robes and why it's so offensive and worth fighting? Most religions went thru different transformations and branched out. In Christianity only Catholics still hold on to their male hierarchy. And what does that mean? Nothing. Just a thing in history which eventually will change. I, personally, am very thankful to feminism whatever hysterical it might be at moments. I still love to be a mother and cook and do other traditional things as well as meditate, but socially it's nice not be a commodity and not to be bound to certain radical traditions etc.

Quote from: pure answer of Bhante
I suspect you're not going to like this blog.


 
It doesn't matter even to me if I like or not. I don't look at things that way. I might not like, but I am curious. In my book, if someone was sitting for 20 years in the forest and meditating, they might have some interesting insights. So I asked questions. Yes, I am puzzled, but that's why I ask.

First, one having spend time alone in the forest, even only one year and instructed well in the Dhamma, has layed philosophy and views aside.

One should not think that a monk outomatical leaves the house into homelessness and alone dwelling monks, not engaged in improper livelihood are rare, very rare, would not have desire or idea to go back to the west only once.

Yet, some lasting sorrows for ones kind are still present, even for a no-returner.



If one takes on an extrem, even if just stategical, one nurishes that extreme and is quick in companion-ship of even radical and "bad" guys.

Its very sad to see such like here, somebody quoting Dhamma and such a post, while no reaction of Bhante:


"Monks, a statement endowed with five factors is well-spoken, not ill-spoken. It is blameless & unfaulted by knowledgeable people. Which five?

"It is spoken at the right time. It is spoken in truth. It is spoken affectionately. It is spoken beneficially. It is spoken with a mind of good-will."

— AN 5.198

Quote from: Epä Järjestys

Good sales pxxx!

Once my person openend a blog, vanaradari, not even as conservative like he might apoear now, but just "provoking". As he realiced that certain hindu inspired right-extremist started to follow and nurished on it their wrong views, he simply stopped.

When still a householder, my person started and runned a very successful hardrock-scene-bar in the conservative center of the capital, at a time where rock was death an Techno ruled. The have been later bestselling "no-techno" t-shirts.
At the beginning there have been groups who thought that it is an invitation to fight each other. Having then restricted the giving away of such t-shirts, people understood that fight is not supported at all, even a having a clear stand of what is simply foolish.
Its has been runned 10 years with not the slightest trouble, not even two friend arguing mag against each other, drug-free and visited by all generation and also heavy guys, Outsider and Hellsangels and police-officers private or to have just a nice break in smoot area.

That's not something everybody can do, should do. Of course it was soon destroyed after leaving, by this group and tendency Bhante argues, but because the heirs did not fully understood that walking on the edge.

Never stood between soldiers on the front, between fighting seeking crowds, never seen real blood and people hurting and killing others, if not walking untouchable, when such time comes, one might be really in troubles. Its seemingly out of effect doing such from a comfort zone, but its just a question of time that such kamma does not only make the practice harder but also slowly appears physical.

Bhante would do good seeking possible ways in Burma to walk on, because that what he sees far away already blocks possible path right around him.

Be well and possible turn to Dhamma and what should be your skill. No way to safe socialy and people in the west, since there is no more upanissaya.

"Run to the hills!"



When then reading further "AN EXAMPLE OF PC SCIENCE DENIAL: THE ISSUES", no need to go into the nonsensical philosophical and historical arguing, but simply look at the speech ans word Bhante uses, than that all is simply a shame. Use of words like a "homie" anywhere in a bar in a US-township or in a farmer village sunday talk at the villages pub.

That is really of no use for anyone.

Postmodern, feminism, pseudoliberalism has already created their right-extrem leaders naturally since to crowd need orientation and leading, and it just a matter of short time that the big show will go on again. So be sure that you are on a neutral place, with a mind not taking side, when it grows warm, the sooner one goes on to try to leave, and take on the path, the better. Don't turn around, you might be tempt to help what is not possible.

Just walk on, you might met people, seeing the fire you left in you behind coming after, and if they have needed foundation they might follow. Its follish to lead others into a fight, yet sitting still on a safe "place", better having some merits left.

If trying to help, never use the folk, the crowd, the poor, ensnared hardly. You will not like to see the hurting each other and be punished by their chefs.

Such political monks are those who destroy the Dhamma and right view in Asia, taking on either left or right, for the poor or rich... that is exact not the way.

The would be planty of work in the society Sangha and work to bend ones on view and that of the fellows, but that does not seems tasty, since seeking for supporters under lay people and liking to use the housing the Sangha provides. Right next, one likes to live in harmony.

You do not provide samples at all, being criticised and disrespecting Dhamma and Vinaya and critic. Itks rally meaningless to build on outsiders, yet not established faith in the Juwels and precepts.

This "wiki"-like backup tool is meant as a outwardy insurance that one does not be afraid that anything possible good can be desroyed or made bad while looking for cleaning it. So worry at all, kamma does not dissapear. No need to fear to make good deeds, knowing that.

And there is no intention to just make a museum out of a working and concentration camp, since the Dhamma can not be understood by just looking on forms but by learning and experiance skillful deeds.
