    Just think about seeing monk fly out of the window! That would be so funny! Like you are about to ask him some importaint qestion and he just takes off !! What sound would he make? Does it requires him to tense his musckles to take off? He probably had some involuntary farts while taking off! Must have! What about landings? Many landings on the face, trees, wall or something else before getting it right? Interesting stuff!

      If I could fly out of the window, I would chose to fly feet first just in case I crash into something. Also helmet would be must as we all do mistakes. These days I would also have to wear trasponder and radio.

    This is probably the best dhamma talk from a monk. So many monks and dhamma teachers always beat around the bush and never get to the core of the Buddha's teachings. Finally, we have somebody who tells the truth. I wish every monk and dhamma teacher would give this lesson every month to their students to remind them. It is very helpful to me personally also, because it gives me perspective on how to practice in a balanced way.

    Don't stop there. Toss it ALL away until you experience some of it for yourself.

  • DerrenBrown100

    @TheApatheticGuy Yeh but it takes away the validity of Buddism in my opinion. Ok i will ignore the claims that the Buddha was born of a virgin & toss all the supposed magic powers away. Thanks.

  • DerrenBrown100
    DerrenBrown100 9 years ago

    Those who thumbed up atari67 reply are wrong. Buddhists claim powers with no evidence.

  • TheApatheticGuy
    TheApatheticGuy 9 years ago +1

    I don't know, but then again, you don't have to believe anything to sit down and watch the breath. Superstition and the supernatural aren't the focus of Buddhism...the focus is investigating reality in order to fully understand it. When you fully understand it, you're liberated from suffering by having cut off craving at its root.
    Ta da! No magic powers involved.

    @TheApatheticGuy Ok but again, has anyone seen this? Flying, walking through walls.....really???

    The Buddha did not teach Buddhism, he taught Dhamma, and that is universal.

    Thank you for this excellent dhamma talk!

    Gaining psychic powers are not necessary for any stage of enlightenment or even full arahantship. There's a sutta (I think it was one of the short-length ones, but I'm not sure), where a man questions a group of arahants and asks them if they have any powers. They reply that no, they did not. They merely saw into the deathless and understood the Dhamma.
    Although powers are allegedly possible to attain, they are by no means necessary for any stage of enlightenment.

  • DerrenBrown100

    @atari67 Well he said there that a guy flew out of a window, and he read someone's mind. I looked it up on wikipedia and it states that when one reaches a certain stage of enlightenment, you gain powers.

  • atari67

    @DerrenBrown100 - there are no Buddhist magic powers.

  • DerrenBrown100
    DerrenBrown100 9 years ago

    Is there any evidence for Buddhist magic powers?

    • tictoc544
      tictoc544 2 years ago

      the only evidence is witness testimony which cannot be proved or disproved,and is not the goal of meditators
