Death and the Self Shaun Nichols , Nina Strohminger , Arun Rai , Jay Garfield First published: 22 January 2018 It is an old philosophical idea that if the future self is literally different from the current self, one should be less concerned with the death of the future self (Parfit, 1984). This paper examines the relation between attitudes about death and the self among Hindus, Westerners, and three Buddhist populations (Lay Tibetan, Lay Bhutanese, and monastic Tibetans). Compared with other groups, monastic Tibetans gave particularly strong denials of the continuity of self, across several measures. We predicted that the denial of self would be associated with a lower fear of death and greater generosity toward others. To our surprise, we found the opposite. Monastic Tibetan Buddhists showed significantly greater fear of death than any other group. The monastics were also less generous than any other group about the prospect of giving up a slightly longer life in order to extend the life of another. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/cogs.12590
Salam aleykum, Brothers and sisters, please take a moment out of your days to learn about or remind yourself about the suffering of our Rohingya muslim brothers and sisters in Myanmar that are systematically being killed and oppressed by the extremist buddhist government and its soldiers. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/burma-rohingya-muslim-babies-children-slaughtered-knives-massacre-genocide-un-warns-a7561711.html "One mother recounted in the report how her five-year-old daughter was trying to protect her from rape when a man “took out a long knife and killed her by slitting her throat”, while in another case an eight-month-old baby was reportedly killed while his mother was gang-raped by five security officers." And... this is just from today: "Burma: 400 killed amid 'massacre' of Rohingya Muslims, army says" http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/urma-rohingya-muslims-killed-massacre-highlands-armed-forces-army-soldiers-terror-a7924411.html So many of these supposedly "muslims" from all over the world travelling to join daesh(la) over time, because they worry about the state of islam, where are these hypocrite takfiris now? They speak of shia death squads in Iraq who come and kill sunni muslims, what about these sunni muslims? Their care does not reach to Burma? May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى curse all self serving hypocrites. Brothers and sisters, please share these poor oppressed peoples situation, nobody is going to care if nobody knows, why such silence on their state? Please pray for the faraj of our beloved Imam(ajf) and for the return of justice.

Of all the moral precepts instilled in Buddhist monks the promise not to kill comes first, and the principle of non-violence is arguably more central to Buddhism than any other major religion. So why have monks been using hate speech against Muslims and joining mobs that have left dozens dead? This is happening in two countries separated by well over 1,000 miles of Indian Ocean - Burma and Sri Lanka. It is puzzling because neither country is facing an Islamist militant threat. Muslims in both places are a generally peaceable and small minority. read on: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22356306
According to latest stats: India-49% of men are actively seeking or indulging in extra-marital affairs. Women don't lag much behind. Pakistan-7% of men are actively seeking or indulging in extra-marital affairs (they are the next highest offender!) Egypt-6% of men are actively seeking or indulging in extra-marital affairs Saudi Arabia-5% of men are actively seeking or indulging in extra-marital affairs In India too, Hindu couples are the highest on the infidelity index, Indian Muslims being on the lowest in India, apparently that's one bad thing they have not assimilated themselves yet into, but that's a different discussion. Thanks to Islam which puts even heavier legal penalties on illicit affairs between married couple, while the legal penalties of non-married illicit affairs being already very strong and in most cases deterring.
The Buddha said…”When I recall the past, I remember that I was the king of a great state…My name was Senyo, and I loved and venerated the Mahayana sutras…When I heard the Brahmins slandering the vaipulya sutras, I put them to death on the spot. Good men, as a result of that action, I never thereafter fell into hell. O good man! When we accept and defend the Mahayana sutras, we possess innumerable virtues.”  More: http://www.loonwatch.com/2012/07/warrior-monks-the-untold-story-of-buddhist-violence-i/
