Avuṭṭhikasuttaṃ

This was said by the Lord, said by the Arahant, so I heard: "Bhikkhus, these three kinds of persons are found existing in the world. What three? 

One who is like a rainless cloud, 
one who rains locally, 
and one who rains everywhere.

"Now what kind of person, bhikkhus, is like a rainless cloud? Here, a certain person is not a giver to anyone; he does not give food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging, and lamps to recluses and brahmins, to the poor, destitute, and needy. This kind of person is like a rainless cloud.

"Now what, bhikkhus, is the kind of person who rains locally? Here, a certain person is a giver to some but not not a giver to others. Food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging and lamps he gives only to some recluses and brahmins, to some of the poor, destitute and needy, but not to others. This is the kind of person who rains locally.

"Now what, bhikkhus, is the kind of person who rains everywhere? Here, a certain person gives to all. He gives food, drink, clothing, vehicles, garlands, scents, ointments, beds, lodging, and lamps to all recluses and brahmins, to the poor, destitute, and needy. This is the kind of person who rains everywhere.

"These, bhikkhus, are the three kinds of persons found existing in the world.

"Neither to recluses nor brahmins
Nor to the poor and destitute
Does he distribute his store
Of food and drinks and goods;
That base person is called
'One like a rainless cloud'

"To some he does not give,
To some he offers alms;
That one wise people call
'One who rains only locally

"A person renowned for his bounty,
Compassionate towards all beings,
Distributes alms gladly.
'Give! Give!' he says

"Like a great storm cloud
That thunders and rains down
Filling the levels and hollows,
Saturating the earth with water,
Even so is such a person.

"Having righteously gathered wealth
Which he obtains by his own effort,
He fully satisfies with food and drink
Whatever beings live in need."

即使一個人用心照遍十方的任何角落, 都尋不到一個珍重愛惜他人的程度超過於愛己命。 同理,十方所有眾生沒有一個珍重愛惜其他超過於愛惜自己的命; 因此,願自我得到安樂的人不應該傷害凡有情及生命的。 【相應部1-75】. Pages. Home · 巴利文-中文【A-N】 · 巴利文-中文【P-Y】 · 巴利- 漢語 · 聆佛教唱誦【真好聽】 ...

Even as a full-fledged India-Pakistan war seems a few stages away - unless Pakistan retaliates, which it might be tempted to after India's surgical strikes - there is much that both nations will have to weigh in terms of the price that they will incur if

Sixty-five million people uprooted from their homes. Twenty-one million refugees scattered across borders. Families capsizing at sea in search of sanctuary. A toddler face down on a beach; a child’s face covered in blood and debris. These are but a few haunting snapshots of the global refugee crisis unfolding before our eyes.

Earlier this week, world leaders gathered at the United Nations to take action. So did 51 U.S. firms in a display of true corporate leadership because, simply put, a crisis of this scale requires all hands on deck --governments, foundations, international organizations, and, yes, the private sector.

To be sure, governments must lead the response to the refugee crisis from diplomacy to end conflicts to humanitarian aid to treat the dire symptoms. The United States has played a key leadership role in this regard. Following a sustained campaign by the Obama Administration to rally nations to step up their efforts in response to the largest mass displacement crisis since the Second World War, on September 20th, President Obama joined UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, as well as leaders from Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico, and Sweden, in co-hosting a Leaders’ Summit on Refugees at the United Nations: https://goo.gl/kgOjNG

Yeah, they even put turmeric in a capsule and sell. Anything global for money but we can't tolerate people.
 
Native American medicine man "Mad Bear" Anderson explains that: "The power is not within the medicine men, the power is within the creator. The pharams learn of these medicine and make an overpriced synthetic version. Please see link below to video. Sound goes away but, comes back.

A speeding commuter train plowed into a platform inside New Jersey Transit's Hoboken terminal Thursday morning, killing at least one person and injuring 108 others, officials said.

The train was traveling "at much too high rate of speed," crashing through a series of barriers and taking down an interior wall of the station just before 9 a.m. ET, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said at a news conference after assessing the damage.
'It was for a couple seconds, but it felt like an eternity,' a passenger said. 'I saw a woman pinned under the concrete. A lot of people were bleeding, one guy was crying.'

What is this vitally crucial Right Effort? That Noble Eightfold Way, leading to Nibbāna, is simply this: Right View, Right Motivation, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Awareness, and Right Concentration. But what is Right Effort?

Probably, with the stress in America we need some extra cells for everyone!
If it helps in epilepsy, autism, paralysis but....It would be interesting to attend the ethics conference on it.
 
New brain technologies could alter how we think, act and feel. Are they ethical?
