When I first arrived in my new city I asked those who knew more than me where I should go and explore. I was told not to go into certain streets in case I run into trouble, but to go to other places...
Ishna Ji, no need to apologise. I wasn't able to turn on the male icon beside the name earlier. I tried various times and just figured it out today, my profile reads "male" if viewed. I am considering to request my name is changed to help reduce this issue as it has been happening since I...
It cannot be described but it can be comprehended then described as a singular state i.e. god state. ;)
My feeling is we have already been caught up in Maya's divine play. :)
I agree with you Kulbir Ji
The immersion doesn't mean loss, it is a completeness which was felt before to be an incompleteness.
It is a return home.
Luckysingh Ji, interesting thread, thank you!
Here are some thoughts in reply.

What super posts, LuckySingh Ji!
I agree with you, there is something blocking us from putting 2 and 2 together. Every person is struggling or has struggled with this because that which hampers you and it also hampers each person. I see that which hampers us as Maya (ego is a part of Maya)...
I think the conversation is coming to an end, which is fine.
Your questions are quoted followed by my answer below, my answer is personal i.e. I am not quoting scripture or being philosophical for the sake of it. I am using my own vocabulary a little here, as I cannot remember...
Thanks for the continued explanation.
Unless a being is still opposed to change through craving, clinging and aversion. Buddhism may address well a person who is undergoing suffering because they cannot get what they want, cannot avoid what they do not want or remain neutral. I...
Hello Confused Ji
Thanks for the reply. I do not understand how the end of Dukkha can imply a continuation of Dukkha? It doesn't make sense to me.
