Many people look to Siddhartha Gautama as an example of someone who attained nirvana, a buddha. is devoted to taking an honest look at what we as meditators face in the modern world.
Each week in this column we look at what it might be like if Siddhartha was on his spiritual journey today. Every other week I'll take on a new question and give some advice based on what I think Sid, a fictional Siddartha, would do.
arriage is a social convention, an institution created by man for the well-being and happiness of man, to differentiate human society from animal life and to maintain order and harmony in the process of procreation.Man must realize the difficulties, the trials and tribulations that he has to undergo just to maintain a wife and a family.These would be magnified many times when faced with calamities.There are ample inferences in His sermons that it is wise and advisable to be faithful to one wife and not to be sensual and to run after other women.The Buddha realized that one of the main causes of man's downfall is his involvement with other women (Parabhava Sutta).
