Question 365: @ 12:19 Why is passion considered a defilement although it is the only way via which beings are born? Also, Buddha also said that human birth is much more precious than birth in higher realms since it has both pleasure and pain and that only produces a desire for liberation and human beings can only be born if passion is there.

DoA #119: Early Buddhism, Quantum Physics, and Relativity. Corresponding Videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DHg579WvLY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M2tj4S4j4I This lecture was given on Jan 10, 2019, at The Theosophical Society in America, Wheaton, Illinois, Theosophical.org The 20th century started with two groundbreaking scientific revolutions: quantum mechanics and relativity. Quantum mechanics stated that elementary systems only have real definite local properties if and when observed by a conscious observer. This squares well with early Buddhism’s idea of Emptiness (‎Suññatā) and emphasis on Experience as the sole reality. Special relativity introduced length-contraction and time-dilation similar to Buddhism’s concept of seeing all states as conditional relations (Paţţhāna) between mind and its object, thus also renouncing the naïve idea of a local reality existing independent of the observing mind. Join Buddhist monk and scientist Bhante Samahita for a discussion on the convergence of Buddhism, quantum physics, and relativity. Bhante Samāhita was educated as a medical doctor at the Copenhagen University in Denmark, and became Associate Professor in Bioinformatics at the Technical University in Denmark, working with theoretical biology and artificial intelligence. He arrived in Sri Lanka in 2001, where he became fully ordained as a Bhikkhu in 2003. As a monk of the Theravada Araññavasin Forest Tradition, he has been living and meditating for the past 16 years alone in a remote mountain forest hermitage. His main philosophical interest is the convergence and congruence of ideas within Early Buddhism, Orthodox Quantum Physics, Einsteinian Relativity, Information Theory, and Thermodynamics.

All Constructions Are? Guided Meditation on the 3 Characteristics Corresponding Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyIdRfbrUKw The Buddha Said: "Sabbe Sankhara Anicca" - "All constructions are Impermanent" "Sabbe Sankhara Dukkha" - "All constructions are Suffering" "Sabbe Dhamma Anatta" - "All phenomena are No-self..." SEEING the INEVITABLE DECAY induces the NOBLE WAY! Impermanent, momentary, transient, and inherently vanishing are all constructions! Whoever sees and understand this, becomes disgusted with all this Suffering. Such intelligent one turns away from all that is ill. This is the Path to Purification! Dhammapada 277 The immanent STRESS of SAMSARA: All conditioned elements of being; All existing constructions are ultimately speaking only Suffering & Misery! Whoever fully perceives this with incisive Insight, such intelligent one turns away from all that is bad, and thereby straightaway develops immunity to suffering. This is the way to Purity. Dhammapada 278 EMPTY of SELF & VOID of SUBSTANCE: Lacking entity, Without a self; Void of core Substance are all phenomena without exception.. Whoever fully perceives this with penetrating break-through Insight, will turn away from all that is detrimental, and thus straightaway develops immunity to suffering. This is the way to pure freedom. Dhammapada 279 Source Text: https://what-buddha-said.net/Canon/Sutta/KN/Dhammapada.htm Commentary on Dhammapada Verses 277, 278 and 279: Stories Relating to Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta https://what-buddha-said.net/Canon/Sutta/KN/Dhammapada.Verse_277_279.story.htm Thanx to all to Dayakas, Supporters, and Donors: Especially those who donated the Website-hosting costs for 1 full year, and updating the Video-Editing Software costs.
