The staff, crews and Buddhist monks that contribute their materials voluntarily to Templenews TV adhere to Theravada Buddhism that believe in the law of karma. Buddhism is not a superstition. Superstition is non-Buddhism, scam, fake, pretentious and corrupt. The historic Lord Buddha foresees Buddhism to last 5,000 years (This year is 2,556). There are about 2,444 years more to go.
This pretentious, fake, no good, scam artist and con man exploits vulnerable and weak individuals. What would the Buddha say?
Buddhism and Superstition
“They do not get carried away by superstition; they believe in deeds, aspiring to results from their own deeds through their own effort in a rational way; they are not excited by wildly rumored superstition, talismans or lucky charms; they do not aspire to results from praying for miracles.” Anguttara Nikaya III 206, Pali Tipitaka
Most of Cambodia’s 56,000 Buddhist monks are not doing their job of helping people rid their minds of the ignorance that the Buddha taught is the root cause of delusion and suffering. The monks themselves may even be encouraging this delusion. They hand out lottery numbers and amulets and sprinkle holy water because they know that these are easy ways to draw people to their temples, and more visitors means more donations. Are monks and nuns with supernatural powers helping or destroying Buddhism? Related non-Buddhism and superstition materials
