Buddhism, Religion Must Change

In Buddhism, there are four stages of enlightenment, Sotāpanna, Sakadāgāmi, Anāgāmi, and Arahant. But, why are there less enlightened people today, compare to 2000 years ago?

I think I got an answer. As in the same person, one’s identity could be transformed and changed over the time, the many generation of 2000 years, people could be changed in many things, such as identities, belief, cultures, lifestyle, intelligence, and also relationship to one another.

A lesson could teach and enlighten people in 2000 years ago may not be able to use with the most people living in the current day. 2000 years changed in timeline, and from India to Thailand or China… These are totally different cultures.

change religion Thailand Buddha Buddhism

There should be some change in many parts of lessons or principles. However, most Buddhists cannot accept the change. They believe that all of Buddha’s words are perfect and unchangeable.

They are wrong. If you guys learn about Buddha’s biography, you will found that he changed the rules many times. A very outstanding change is that women were later allowed to become a monk. In fact, Buddha had a very negative attitude toward women, but the monk, Anandha, pointed him to think about the fact that women can be enlightened as well as the men.

Since things could be changed during the time that Buddha were living, it should be able to change in the current day according to culture and laws of the society. These people believe that the only one who could change the principle is Buddha. Even other Arahant monks still cannot change anything.

Racial Discrimination on me, as an Asian Lady

Racial Discrimination on me, as an Asian Lady

When I was in New York City as an undergraduate student, I liked to go to many museums and galleries in my free time. I had my small backpack with me.

Once, I went to an art museum, and lined up with other visitors. Most of them were white with the age ranged from around 40 to 70, I guess. The security guard did not call any white visitor to check the bag or backpack, but they asked me to see inside my backpack.

I was the only one small female Asian girl in that line. I just wondered why the security guard prejudice me or Asian girl like that. That time I did not say anything, because I was young and did not know much about my right or the fact about discrimination.

Later, I was in an airport in Europe. Again, I was discriminated by the lady at the security check. She asked me to take off my boots and put into the X-Ray scanner. I did it, but I had a question. I asked her why she did not ask any men who wore the same kind of boots to take off their shoes. She could not answer my question, but she tried to say that it was her right to ask anyone there to take off the shoes.

Although she tried to act like having much power to do anything there, I knew that she would learn something that she should treat people equally, whether they are Asian, White, women, men, or other minority.

That time, I learned that it is not only men who discriminate women, but some women also discriminate against women. These women may have more positive attitude toward men than their own gender, or they may be jealous those with the same gender.

Thailand Traditional Love & Sex Culture

Article by Sw Eden (สว อิเฎล) and Jang (แจง)

Before people get married, they have to learn about each other first and then they can decide that both of them can get along well together or not. Because American was taught to make their own decision when they were young, when they grow up, they are more confident than Thai people who have warm family. Maybe this is the main cause of why Thais and American’s courtship custom are totally different in many different ways such as; how long they adapt themselves, how they show their love and studying about each other background.

Because of Americans’ self-confidence, when they feel that they are ready, they can do everything they want as Americans’ marriage although marriage is the one of most important things in every life. The Americans use not too much time to court; we can see the example in almost all American drama movies that two actors just know each other on that day and they date that day, too. The father and the mother do not worry that their child goes out side at night with his or her lover before marriage. These factors let the time of court to be shorter than Thai people because they feel love faster. After they marry, they always have many problems because they don’t understand something that they have never known before.

Americans do not feel shame when they show their love directly in public areas because most of them came from Europe or they came from many places and don’t have their own tradition. When they desire to do something, they just do it right away, such as, kiss on the street or inside the theater. They can argue out loud and do not care that there are others around them.

For Thailand, before a couple get married, both of them have to learn about each other’s background and have to know his or her parents and both families have to be well compatible. In my opinion, background is very important as income, occupation, race, religion, and character of whole family. Rarely, the rich marry with the poor in Thailand or Indians marry with the Chinese, but all of these, we can see normally in America. This is a situation that amazes me; Sw Eden have heard a story of my teacher’s friend. She comes from Thai and her husband is American. They have child and their family was very happy, but one day her husband’s friend came to her house and courted her. He did so often until she changed her mind and married again, his husband’s friend. In Thailand, the new man should wait until that couple was divorce and court the woman. This means American do not care about background.

Courtship of American is different from Thai’s Courtship, such as, time to decide, background, and status. The ways people associate together depend on many factors but the main point is love. If they love each other, the rest does not matter. Love can lead the way for both of them to get through in everything.

#X Nanta (Nantawadi)
She was a Myanmese Queen around 500 years ago. My drawing is her ideal persona of my view. She was more bold and sexy than in the history book. I wrote the biography of Tabinshwehti the 2nd king of Myanmar who was her husband. I began to write it as poetry when I was 7 grade student or around 10 years old, and I finished it in the following year. All are about fun things in palace and fun things in wars. Just in the last part of the poem that Tabinshwehti got killed, that is the sad part that I cried for when I wrote. I also composed 3-4 songs about this stories. They have been my favorite until now.
