Buddhist cartoon fun/ wisdom






Not a cartoon but a well humoured video about what meditation can be:



Thank you Ayya Yeshe :laughing: (note: use American pronunciation)


Not necessarily Buddhist in sensu stricto, but may remind of some of the endless debates on whether there is a self or not in the room… :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Wittgenstein wrote much of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus in the trenches in World War I, where he fought on the German side. The argument that he is giving is his argument that you cannot have negative knowledge of what exists, because in order to do so you would have to have complete knowledge of what does exist, and a further piece of knowledge that you had all the knowledge there was to be had, which is impossible. He famously refused to say that he know for certain that a Hippo was not in the room, in an argument with Bertrand Russell.






This was in the Sunday Comics today:





This isn’t a cartoon, but it is, IMO, “Buddhist fun”.

If you use Google Chrome as a web browser, and you have its auto-translate features turned on, and you click on any of the āgamas hosted here, Google auto-translate will render the opening “evaṃ me sutaṃ” (如是我聞 in Chinese) as:

“If I smell:”

Sniff out that Dhamma folks.






Sotapanna problems… :sweat_smile:
