"I was confronted around the room. Then you can convert back again. Practically think about what? The other way what's the big deal? Because Buddhism is very practical about these things if you try knock, you never get anyway. But if you. Could adapt as soon as I've gone that he can convert back again. But unfortunately, there's some people just get so much suffering in corporate with. These people. And I think that any act if it comes from a Buddhist Christian Muslim and Gio, whatever any act, which is like that, which is forceful indoctrinating aggressive, which doesn't really give a person, the freedom of choice, and of course, when you are sickly again that freedom of choice is not really there. Would you allow us in such a situation to sign a will and have that will being legally valid? Start great physical, and emotional pressure at the time of death. No same way. I. Think. Any group who tries to do that? That should be basically banned. For anyone who sort of forces childhood have distributional Davidge also should be allowed disallowed. I don't mind being put it to cohere, but of course. No person in Australia and. Eighteen is allowed to choose a political party. The reason ways because people aren't mature enough. TRASHY TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE POLITICAL PARTIES AVAILABLE So, why are they able to choose religion such a young age A such a young age said not mature enough to know the difference between these religions and so. If they're not mature enough, they shouldn't be allowed to choose a rather other people should not be allowed to choose for them. Otherwise it's not religious freedom, his religious indoctrination. It's the same with even marriage laws. I think it's very wrong that a person who is one religion is forbidden from marrying someone of another religion. Whole you have to convert today, but before you can get married. I'm very, very proud. I remember meeting this US apart of some of the people that I've met I remember meeting this couple I've in Singapore and he was a Christian. A Buddhist? And they're very happy together and I said wonderful when you have a child, the first child should be Muslim the second also be a and it's such a Hindu. Now what I was saying is. Caught we allow our children to choose for ourselves car. We just allow people to be themselves. Why is there have to be forced? You must be this. Asian. Or another reason why we using emotional blackmail? Any other Pragnell to force religions of views on people that is office not religious, freedom. I think it's about time that. Human. Societies reclaimed the word religious freedom. Make sure it was not misused. As a form of religious domination. Or extortion. So when we can do this we have an understanding what really freedom isn't just fighting the French. We can actually have even laws in place. which actually protect freedoms. For overdose. and. So we can discuss things without any fear of intimidation violence. Are. We can discuss even in Buddhism without fear of intimidation violence. When people have argued with me, I've never beaten them up the never let me even more importantly. And you'll never sort of we never have any. Any threat of excommunication. Sometimes I think it'd be wonderful thing if I could do that. But it wouldn't be wonderful. We don't have that at all in real religion soon should have the freedom of debate, the freedom of inquiry, the freedom of choice because that freedom of inquiry choices. To finding the truth. Sometimes I, what people are afraid of with honest debate and questioning and investigation. Why are people afraid that we conduct our children to choose religion? Of course, it doesn't make any sense to me just because your parents are one religion, you have to be the same way to. That is sort of an idea whose time has long passed. So real freedom of religion think should be enshrined in all of us because we have to protect freedoms in the same way we protect other freedoms. ANYTHING ANYTHING WHICH Clearly goes against fundamental human rights, which is right to choose. The right to choose freely and not being indoctrinated not to be. Given false information to be able to question to bear to Arche such a freedom I think is fundamental. Fundamental certainly, what I understand is Buddhism. The whole pacifists. Practice recall put him. It's always allowed to question what was that allowed? To argue always allowed to disagree without any fear of. Being. Rejected without any fear of being excommunicated hurt or whatever. Which is why again that when people have good arguments, we always welcome those remember that. Even, my own teacher agenda many many years ago. there was the. Chairman of the English Sangha Trust, which was the organization which was inviting ten trials amongst to the West for the first time when they went to England. And so he came over to see the great master when he brought his daughter to have her eighteenth birthday, it was eighteenth birthday gift to go to Thailand amid the great agenda. But this was an eighteen year old English go really upper self. And so which he may attention she started off with him being totally disrespectful. When someone actually told you know this is a great time like you're being disrespect you're not supposed to argue. And then we're not show interrupted said, no leave her alone. This is good. and. He welcomed such arguments even though there was very cutting. A wonderful thing to be able to have that certainly all the years I've been in Australia. It was very easy to actually teach Buddhism entire them. But when you come to Western countries, that's when you really get tested. because. That's where people ask you some very, very difficult questions and you never say, no, you can't ask that question of course. Welcome those questions and even if they think stupid, you're quite welcome to say that. And you're not sort of faith. Argued With you not said, you're evil anything because you don't disagree with me. Perhaps the worst question of the most difficult question I ever got lost. was when I was teaching in the High School I forget which high school it was. It was a public school. IT WASN'T A. Particularly Good Subir because his fourteen year I'll go when I asked the questions about Buddhism. She. Put up a hand and say, what's your question? About, Buddhism. She said it's about you go still turn you.

And so you know when you look at very dedicated. Practitioners within T- Buddhist Christian Muslim and Hindu fraternity. You find that. The vast majority of these people have genuine interest in in developing. You know some Profound understanding of life and the universe. When you you look at history and you look at the many of the very Say Good Quality. High Class Scholars Academics philosophers throughout history You know the the all these people touched on this on these principles on select at least on an irregular basis. Because we know we're looking at like a deep and profound sort higher knowledge of quite an understanding of man's place in the cosmos so this this whole say path and process of insight as many of your way that that the Buddha's teaching you know when you look at all the foundations principles of what the Buddha taught that the actual the apex the Pinnacle Point. Of the teaching is the development of deep wisdom and insight. So you know when you you look at the latest the General Society the practice of the latest generosity Ceelo which is based on at least a five precepts precepts development of Somali. A of stillness shop really shop focusing mindfulness and the development of insights. Your your insight. Your wisdom is at. The Pinnacle is at the Apex of this this pyramid and is supported by all these these principles you know a as as foundation principles with the The police eight full path. So when we look at the development of inside wh- what do we actually made so inside being Celica a very four comprehensive and detailed understanding of say once by internal experience and the external world especially world and the universe around you and so how how does how does the post in know when something is wisdom or deep inside or where or when it's just proliferation and Corporately cook and just complete nonsense. Yeah because some people very very smart very very sharp with the with the chat you know and They can be very elegant eloquent They can be. You know a mean fantastic speakers and Or raters and these.

Were you need you know? Very very shop. Communication and Say Teaching leadership skills. So so what's the difference between wisden inside? And just you know philosophical babble stuff which which really which you know we really like sounds good sounds impressive but but you know how. How do we know that that post has actually got the goods and another person is able to talk the talk but not walk the walk and so any person where the slightest sample or monastics and and specifically with say light light teachers as well because they like you know sort of like halfway between The light protect lay practitioners and the monastics because they have to dedicate far more time with the practicing teaching people like leadership Position of trust and and and whatnot so people expect them to keep a A high standard. They expect them to have a deeper understanding of of On practice or problems and difficulties had to leave once. Live and So you know how do we know? So you know we we have. We have domestics we have the life fraternity. We have light teachers. And so how? How do we know what is wisdom? And what is just very very like shop profound. Say say babble in a sense and one one thing you see is you know. Wisdom wisdom shines itself in in in action. You know the you know to to know surface amplifer person has really has been a wisdom has some real understanding of of one's life of the path you actually seed in action so as the person walks and talks You know the way the way they the way they explain things the way they they they. They live with the morality especially with the five precepts. You in anyone who has any real wisdom at all Tends to be careful with their Their precepts because the wisdom faculty permeates all the major principles. All your thirty seven lightman factors which make up the path. I in in in in total. So you know so when we talk about wisdom we talking about like wisdom in action you know as if a if a person conveys that sense of a that sense of of impression You know you just you just watch the way. The person walks and talks and the way they lead Their life and so we see them in action and so with when we when we see As developing a especially with the meditate is because PM. People you know you you can't people who meditate on a regular basis and they do become naturally reflective of time. Because as you as you do meditation everyday makes you more shop. More moral Increases your sensory awareness your intuition and your sensitivity to what's going on around you meditators tend to be quite sensitive people and and And anyone who's been meditating for several years. They tend to feel their way with other people. I tend to feel the relationships With With their family and friends this young lady who rolled up At the monastery yesterday and She bought a substantial amount of food for the for the community For the meal and this young lady the what the why as we as we chit chatting in the end I asked to. You know to to work in community services because the level of Say that the the quality of the of the communication and engagement was like really good very very good interpersonal skills key connecting with people very very well and And I just autumn Alto this personal social worker Their nurse there a welfare worker Maybe possibly could possibly be working to prison system and whatnot. Yeah some community based support unemployment and this one was working the mental health Sam Fraternity but it was something which really really stood out and being a practicing bullets team. Also so you know as we say for example as we develop Al On a on a daily basis you know we we we do this because you need somebody to give your yourself to the sharpness and the awareness tuition For the development of inside you know might say for example. My father doesn't meditate at all. But he's really into contemplation and he's done an incredible amount of study and research and he's constantly reading and Studying journals and this and that and when he got his Internet access he was just over the moon because everyone knows everyone must. Everything's on the Internet and he was able to study. You know all his major say military and political and economic issues in great detail it be taken particular subject and he would study it thoroughly for you know for you know maybe for at least one or two hours a day for seven days straight and then get this very very fool. Comprehensive like all round knowledge and understanding of the The subject that the that he was looking at it's It's very very similar with the the the Buddhist practitioner as well that you know when we're talking about wasting with Talkin Bout like all round knowledge. So whatever you know if we go through a particular mood or personal experience with someone or something comes up from the hospital even be some heavy issue. We want to develop full knowledge to the best of all ability about the experience at hand so You a person may have a particular significant experience in their life that they have to work with. Oh they need to say comments in in in a major way so they may be reflecting on. This may be at least once twice three times a day and especially the meditate because it it gives you that age as far as contemplation. Some some people can. Do you know like my father. He's very very good. Investigation is going to incredible knowledge base. And you know he can. Just you can just wipe the floor with me when it comes to military political economic issues because I'm online internet. Maybe briefly maybe one or two hours. Maybe roughly every week or so You know because it will. All of you are well aware. You know you can just spend your whole life you know in front of a A Computer and You know the vast majority was done you know. Don't have that time to wasting. Our time is just like slipping through our fingers. Eta speak so you know but some people In a category in the general public can develop very had to go to the mall with Pasadena based you know they they. They like to think and reflect and investigate and and and they they they amassed is incredible knowledge Bison and they they they sifting through an and checking and and clarifying and verifying all these different things that they learned and then they they coming over time as a stay with the investigation they come closer and closer and closer to the heart of the matter or to the true essence of that particular subject. They looking at because as all of you know any particular subject may have could have possibly easily ten even twelve. You know Potential angles to approach from you can have one subject you know with ten or twelve different modes of Understanding Own Investigation That we use In order to get this like all round knowledge around Knowing and an understanding of a a a a particular experience because you know e- so in essence wisdom will bring you listen and true inside will bring you closer to the true reality of what we're going through or what we see Is happening with other people in other parts of the world. Even on the level of of a satellite Kosmos the universe could be anything whatsoever could be something connected with the the the Hubble Telescope in relation to maybe some new galaxy. And and you know 'cause I mean put a deep talk about these things in a in a small way In the sutras. You know things like that you ration- you know the the the duration of The the cycle of the of the university expansion contraction of university the lifespans of of these highly Very high heavenly beings and Dave. Dave Logan. The brahma loco walls and and So very very profound things but as the Buddha said that you know what I've actually taught you is is is just like a handful of leaves in my hand compared to this great forest in front of you and say what what the Buddhist teaching you is essentially the essence what you need to know in order to penetrate through to ultimate reality and because you know every single every single one of us who is practicing you know the Party and that's what we really have to. I aim for in its final seclusion. The you know the the the the pass The the main point the end point of the Buddhist part is very deep profound wisdom and insight which breaks the cycle of rebirth gives you a very profound understanding of the enlightenment stages and what What say deformities what fetters? What any of the ten fetters. Which lifted the mind and so many of you know the Soda Has Eliminates Free Fitters at the first level of of awakening. And then you see an attenuation reduction of of of The fetus as you move out to scale so so you in essence that That would be the point of the the the police path you know deep profound Understanding of the human mind human condition and And I I was reading some material on a particular lady She gave me a stick with her life story. I should read a book and not just the level of difficulty and suffering of this particular person and I mean I just really just you know like other the talk and but in essence that the the you know because of comic especially because Commerce incredibly complicated and people funding can find themselves in criminal. They can be very good people. Very good heartened. Wholesome people therm underlying Good qualities but the day lives can be. Just a nightmare can be almost horrendous But nobody you know when it comes to come. People don't get unlucky. You essentially the vast majority of the time Ninety eight ninety nine percent of the time you you know you get what you deserve for both good and for bad so if you see a very very good person and they live is just As just a nightmare. It's just stop horrendous. At that point in time that posen is basically bearing the fruits of bad actions in the in the past but they born goodhart born in a difficult situation but when people go through difficulties in life is is one of the crew and one of the very old enlightened masters from Thailand. Said that if you if you go through a particular very difficult experience and this experience thousand kill you it. It just makes you buy physically and psychologically stronger because with with human beings that if life is just full of happiness and place and love and and fantastic relationships with other people and and you know lovely homes and Foss cars and great health and and and children and friends and this and that we don't necessarily learn an incredible degree with that kind of experience but when we have a mix of both good and bad or some people's lives of very difficult it actually if forces you it it forces you to develop it forces you to reflect them. You're live and to find a way out of problems and difficulties and try to improve things because you know with the with with with the this is something that the Buddha.
