SC is guiding those sheep to slaughter.

Quote
Jesus said, "I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty.

Mary said to Jesus, "What are your disciples like?"

He said, "They are like little children living in a field that is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Give us back our field.' They take off their clothes in front of them in order to give it back to them, and they return their field to them.

But meanwhile they are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways.

Though SuttaCentral website do a good service, it appears propagating non-Buddhist Ideologies.

Is this in the accordance with Dhamma?

What are your ideas on this regard?

You can easily catch what is going on after visiting some threads in SuttaCentral forum.

$150k to maintain that site?  Wow!  If they have that kind of budget, maybe I should apply for a job.

There's really only one person here who would claim the authority to make that determination, but I wouldn't put much stock in it.

Also, if you don't agree with how the folks at SC run their forums, then don't use them.

It's considered bad form to go to a forum to just bad-mouth another.

I happened to read some of your non-Buddhist Ideologies today on a forum called "Dhamma Wheel". If I was a gambling man, I would place a bet the SuttaCentral people have a better chance than Thang of winning the horse race to Nibbana. SC odds of winning 1,000 to 1. Thang odds of winning 10,000 to 1. 10,000 more "lifetimes" (10,000 more arrogant non-Buddhist births) until giving up arrogance and listening obediently to compassionate learned teachers.

 :om:

Wow!  First you say SC is leading lambs to slaughter, then you prop them by giving them better odds at nirvana than you probably have.

Nice.

BTW, come up with any credentials to support your posturing as a translator (pali and/or sanskrit)?

The translation issue is a very tangible thing. The above comment shows a strong disconnect from reality. It is obviously yourself with zero credentials to support your comment above. In the situation you experienced reading my answer to the translation issue; the Buddha recommended the practise of mudita. Note: I never claimed my translation was correct however the grammatical matter I pointed out appears very basic. Only severe delusion would make the comment you made. Fortunately, the Buddha taught such delusion can be abandoned. Also, the Buddha taught delusion is merely a "defilement" rather than anything "personal". There is hope. Just let it pass and hope for an improved "reaction" next time.

Don't be silly.  You made a de facto claim that that you are a translator in reponse to a post made by zafrogzen.  You sad it was a "bad translation".  This means you know the difference between good and bad translation.  That means you have some trainning in the matter, such as college level coursework in either pali, sanskrit or both, followed by some some actual work translating documents in those languages under the guidance of an expert or a committee.

So, if you don't mind please post your academic and professional credntials to support your assertion.

OK?

Oh that. Yes. The translation in that case is definitely wrong. 100% wrong.

Many credentialed translators translate the same verse differently. This shows none of them know Pali 100%. A deluded mind that believes a lineage of Tibetan sexual abusers have "credentials" would not understand that "credentials" are meaningless.

And still most of them contradict your idiosnycratic interpretations.  You're an amateur posing as an expert, but you're too arrogant to realise it.

That is just sour grapes because you got banned from SC.  Despite your dishonest attempt to return there as a sock-puppet.   

Usually when people disagree with your arrogant pronouncements about the suttas, you become patronising and obnoxious - we've seen it here too.

You're ducking the question and not very deftly.

I guess it's safe to assume, then, that you have no credentials or relevant experience to support your assertion about  the correctness of any given passage of sutra.  IOW, when you say something isn't translated correctly, you are simply full of !@#$.

On the other hand, I do believe that you think you're some sort of authority.  That's the same sort of delusion you accuse just about everyone else of.  Maybe you should back off calling other people deluded.
