Thai cultural Buddhism and Lying?

Recommended Posts

And what is exactly wrong with lying?

 

Some men expect it and like it very much.

 

I have heard many Thai ladies in those drinking establishment telling their customers You very handsome man.

 

Now I can accept in some cases these ladies have less than perfect vision and they forgot to wear their glasses but I have never heard any man complain about this.

 

I also never complain as in my case it was true.

I am just kidding.

 

It is true but I don't want people to think that I am not being modest.

My big ego cannot take it 

 

if people think I am less than modest and not humble.

Paradox of non duality or is it paradox or duality.

 

I can never work out which is which.

They just know they are Buddhists. 

I disagree. They are a little part of everything out there. A little bit Buddhist, animist and Hindu, with a sprinkling of whatever else, to suit their circumstances.

They are sooo far from being Buddhist, it's scary.

 

Many believe the nonsense that the Buddha came to Thailand, and that large concrete foot mark that you see all over this country, is actually His. 🙂

 

My apologies, but Buddhist in name only and that's at a stretch.

I never subscribe to this duality mumbo jumbo.

 

To me its either duality exist or it doesn't exist.

 

Not both.

Some of them even believe a Buddha amulet will protect them from a bullet.

 

If anyone is looking for one and willing to pay me a lot of money for it I might just be willing to sell it to the lucky person.

But the person must be sincere and the more they offer will show their sincerity.

 

😀

 

And if they get shot I will even offer a full refund unless the person was not sincere and that cause the amulet not to work.

 

Then no refund in this case.

And absolutely no refunds if you get shot and didn't die.

 

You living showed the amulet was working perfectly.

 

If it didn't you will dead.

 

😀

 

Only a full refund if it didn't work.
