DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Whenever I see monks, I want to gather them together and quietly say, “Look guys, just so you know, babies do not come out of a woman’s armpit.”

Nice post!

Buddhahood (perfection) is achievable by a human.

Arhantship is the end of rebirth.

By dying in a jhana state you are reborn in a godly realm.

The Buddha discovered the jhanas. I don`t know where i read that , but is false as fuck.

Samsara (existence) is beginningless

You have countless past lifetimes.

Well that is pretty much it.

The samsara and rebirths is interesting, because I always feel myself going into a trance when I read stuff like that. Kinda like what happened when they put me under to take my wisdom teeth out!
