Re: Teach Agnishom

But, why is there a god to begin with?

That is question we can never answer. Not every question has an answer.

Re: Teach Agnishom

Will God be mad at me for questioning? I do not know. I went to a temple and a Monk told me your father wants to talk to you and share with you something, I asked : What She replied : I don't know, you are not awake, perhaps you will know when you wake up. The conversation is in mandarin. What does that means? I'm confused.

Confusion is natural, when it all disappears is when you are ready.

Re: Teach Agnishom

In what sense? Even a dreary, pedantic field like physics is now aware that there is much we do not know. You can call that being in darkness or being asleep.

The monk told me I will know when I wake up. It sounds scary.

Nope. I went inside a temple with my mother. She told me she is not a atheist she believes in Buddha and Kuan Yin.

That is okay. A Buddhist monk told you that?

Yes, I meant the mantra. I did not do much chanting but I am aware of the the technique somewhat.

There is a supreme being and there are people at different levels.
