2022.01.24 00:17 1234dhamma5678 The Buddha gives eight counter culture values to his step mother Mahāpajāpatī Gotamī [pāli canon]
Shortly after her ordination, the Buddha’s step-mother, Mahāpajāpatī Gotamī, asked him for a short Dhamma-instruction that would guide her in her solitary practice. He responded with eight principles for recognizing what qualifies as Dhamma and Vinaya, and what does not. The commentary tells us that after her instruction, Mahāpajāpati Gotamī in no long time became an arahant. The eight principles have been widely cited ever since. One Thai writer has called them the “constitution of Buddhism,” as they form the standards against which the validity of any interpretation of the Dhamma or Vinaya must be judged. Perhaps the most important point that these principles make is that any teaching has to be judged by the results that come when putting it into practice. They are an excellent illustration of the teachings given in the well-known Kālāma Sutta (AN 3:65), as well as in the teachings that the Buddha gave to his son, Rāhula (MN 61). These eight principles can be divided into three groups as to the as to their focus. The first two—dispassion and being unfettered—focus of the final goal of the practice. Three principles—contentment, persistence, and shedding—focus on internal means to the goal. The remaining three— seclusion, modesty, and being unburdensome—focus on the impact one’s practice has on other people. In this way these principles foster a fully rounded perspective on how one’s practice should be judged. excerpt from Introduction to Recognizing the Dhamma: A Study GuideInteresting thing about this place event is that Mahaprajapati Gotami together with many sakyan women to ordain as a nun under the Buddha travels all the way from Kapilavatthu to Vesali barefooted :
Then she stood there outside the porch, her feet swollen, her limbs covered with dust, sad & unhappy, crying, her face in tears. AN 8.51I have heard that at on one occasion the Blessed One was staying at Vesālī, in the Peaked Roof Hall in the Great Forest. Then Mahāpajāpati Gotamī went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, stood to one side. As she was standing there she said to him: “It would be good, venerable sir, if the Blessed One would teach me the Dhamma in brief such that, having heard the Dhamma from the Blessed One, I might dwell alone, secluded, heedful, ardent, & resolute.” “Gotami, the qualities of which you may know, ‘These qualities lead: to passion, not to dispassion; to being fettered, not to being unfettered; to accumulating, not to shedding; to self-aggrandizement, not to modesty; to discontent, not to contentment; to entanglement, not to seclusion; to laziness, not to aroused persistence; to being burdensome, not to being unburdensome’:

2022.01.24 00:17 hot_sizzauce WE NEED MORE REALMS NOW!
Hey guys I don’t know about you but the new patch coming up is a great addition with all the new item rune words and new builds but I think the best thing they can do is expand the d2 playing field options. MAKE NEW REALMS PLEASE. Its very simple:
Cube 1 of 33 runes + 1 of 4 essences (terror, destruction, suffering, hatred) + scroll to town portal = RUNE REALMS!
As we know these runes posses powerful magical properties but with the sinister combination of the essences of the prime evils with the town scroll, the power of the runes becomes corrupted creating a realm never seen.
This new rune realms will be a great idea for both who want new content and for purist alike for the fact that it doesn’t change or add any new story lines in the d2 universe but adds a whole new fun factor in d2. Its based off the idea of the secret cow level but vastly expanded with the utilization of runes.
33 new realms (all runes), with 4 different realm variations for each realm due to the four essences placed in those runes which means NEW MONSTERS AND NEW VAST LANDSCAPES = A FUN GAME THAT WILL LAST FOR A VERY LONG TIME
side note: The developers don’t have to make all these realms at once because it is impossible to do so. I believe in every ladder season they should introduce 3 or 5 new realms each time. So players have something to look forward for the upcoming seasons. This way the game will be playable for many years to come.
RUNE REALM DETAILS
These new realms will utilize character classes and their specific advantages. Some rune realms need more specific elemental damage to kill monsters and some realms need melee characters to clear the map and some realms you need to utilize both But its up to the players in that realm to find it out.
While trying to figure out what character class to choose, you need to determine what specific gear to wear to reduce the chances of dying and to kill monsters more efficiently.
The four different essences that you put with the runes will differ in difficulty but the rewards are different as well.
ESSENCE OF SUFFERING = extremely high monster count but more experience as a reward
ESSENCE OF DESTRUCTION = most monsters deliver more damage but the drops of magical items are more likely.
ESSENCE OF HATRED = most monsters are immune (phys, cold, fire, etc) but jewels of all grades (chipped to perfect) will drop more frequently as a reward.
ESSENCE OF TERROR = most monsters have auras like fanaticism, might aura, blessed aim and have curses. But more gold will be dropped as a reward.
With the corruption of the runes by the essences the rune properties and essence properties will work against you when entering these realms.
For example: Vex Realm- the properties of this rune is 7% mana leech on weapon and arm/helm/shld is 5 to max fire resist. These properties will work against you when entering this realm by making taking mana from you (new monsters that have mana burn) and increased fire damage and/or having fire immune on monsters. With addition to eccenses like suffering that specific rune realm will have more monsters with the mana burn and fire damage/immunity.
There are fun realms to go to like the Dol Realm where monsters run away from you like the zakarum zealot/priest from act 3, the properties of Dol is chances that hit causes monsters to flee. (This is a troll realm, fun but frustrating for you and you allies)
There will be extremely popular ones like the IST Realm where you and your party have a high change of dropping magical items, jewels, and gold. Think of it as a treasure realm. So if you put transmute IST with the combination of essences of destruction you have harder enemies with even higher chance of finding items.
Another fun one would be the Lem realm where you get 5 times the mount of gold when killing monsters plus with your characters gold find gear it will take it even further but the drawback is that the monsters that you will be facing are leapers (bunny looking creature from act 2) any they run away from you….. and they have fanaticism…. and teleport lol rewards will be tons of gold but frustrating to kill them.
A challenging rune realm would be Mal Realm the properties of preventing monsters to heal is now cast upon you when entering making it very difficult for you and your party. The only way is to exit the realm and heal. The special part of this realm is that has an expiration/timed before it closes making it more challenging.
Some other examples:
Nef Realm- skeleton archers and porcupine looking enemies from act1 will have knock back. lol
Shael Realm- extremely fast attack speed on monsters, bum rushers with fanaticism…. Vipers from act 2 or blood lords from act 5 and/or newly created monsters that we have never seen.
Hel Realm- once you enter you and you entire party are weakened health and damage wise by 30% to 50%. but your godly merc emilio is not effected lol so you have to utilize you merc to kill monsters.
Gul Realm- monsters have very high attack rating. Monsters like blood lord in act 5 have a high chances of hitting you.
*The 6 high runes realm will be extremity hard to complete and will take a long time (30 min to and hour) to clear. These realms have the hardest monsters with all the buffs, curses, auras, immunity, etc, requires strategy and communication of all party members, specific items to wear, etc in addition depending on the essences you placed it will be much harder for everyone.
Jah Realm- ignore target defense for monsters against you with high attack rating… very difficult.
Ber Realm- 50% chance of crushing blow against you and will have damage reduction given to monsters. The realm boss pack will have 100 percent crushing blow to every hit that he makes.
Cham Realm- monsters will freeze the shit out of you!! and have decrepify…. To counter this you need a pally or some item that has fanaticism and items with fast attack speed.
Zod Realm- extremely large health given to all monsters with all the bells and whistles (high dam, have auras, curses, etc). Just imagine a couple dozen fallen (little act 1 monster) slowly running towards you but knowing their strong as hell with the HP of Baal LOL
*another option would be that the Zod realm is a monster defense game but extremely hard , when you enter the realm there is a very long walkway with a large portal in the end of that walkway, there will be a seal like the ones you see in the chaos sanctuary, activate that seal and an army of monsters with low to high hp levels will come out of that portal. there will be 3 or 4 lines on the walkway ground and if your party retreats past those lines the monsters coming towards you becomes stronger. The only way to complete the realm is to where specific items that kill as much monsters as possible and have a sound strategy and hold the line by killing as much as you can. If your party go past that final line then the monsters automatically stops and you have to do it again and if you cant then you wasted a zod rune.
In addition to having rune properties and essences properties work against you their will be a powerful boss pack in each realm to deal with. That boss is the embodiment of that realm like the cow level and its cow king. For example the boss in the Ber realm boss will 100% percent crushing blow every hit but its minions within that realm only have 20%. the realm bosses will have more of that property than the minions so you and your party needs to be careful.
*33 Runes = 33 realms
Low Runes Realms = easy but fun for soloing or small group
Mid Runes Realms = challenging for group/parties
High Runes Realms = extremely challenging, requires precise gear items in your char and requires good strategy in clearing the whole map. big rewards in the end but need to give up a high rune to enter just like giving up and soj for diablo clone.
*4 different variation to each rune realm because of the different essences placed
essence of suffering = vast amounts of enemies
essence of destruction = most monsters deliver way more damage
essence of hatred = most monsters are immune to different elements (phys, cold, fire, etc)
essence of terror = all monsters have auras like fanaticism, might aura, blessed aim, with curses etc.
All have different rewards placed onto them as well
*Depending on the rune and essences some rune realms will have a double stack in monster difficulty for example: the Ohm Realm has the property of 50% more damage but monsters will deal that damage and with the combination of essence of destruction that will take it up to 100% more damage dealt from monsters. This rune/esscence variation will make things interesting not for the low rune realms but for the mid to high rune realms. The choice is yours and your 7 person party to make will you make a game that might be too difficult to clear the map and potentially waste a high rune?
*33 different newly created REALM BOSSES and packs. Realm bosses will be hard extremely in high rune realms. Can teleport frequently, cast curses, have auras, high damage, high health, and will take the entire party to defeat them.
*Each Rune Realm has an easy or extremely hard boss back depending on the rune realm El to Zod. (like the cow king in the cow level)
*3 to 5 Rune Realms will be introduced in each upcoming seasons to retain the games longevity in popularity.
*i forgot to mention this from above, 12 specific Rune Realms (Um to Zod realm) will drop a small item, only one per party (I don’t know what it looks like or what to name it but it is the size of a small charm) when you defeat the realm boss pack and fully cleared the map. when you collect all 12 you can transmute it to create a guaranteed 2 HIGH RUNES. The second option would that each of the 12 small items you collect has inherent properties that plays a role in easing the difficulty of the rune realms. For example they can work as charms but only for the rune realms they are useless in the d2 reality only in the realms they immediately give you tremendous bonuses like one charm will give you 800 elemental damage, the other will give you damage reduced by 200 percent, another will give you slows enemies by 100percent, etc the high Rune realms will be extremely difficult so having these 12 special charms will greatly beneficial to your survivability in future high rune realm runs.
Just imagine games titled “Rune realm party” and get party members with necro putting bone wall against enemies and pallys with their fanaticism auras, barbs with their battle orders and bowazons lighting the monsters up from the distance. So whomever is reading this give this great idea a chance and send it to the blizzard developers to look at please because I don’t know how to contact them. Lol This is a great idea and it holds a lot of promise and fun.
If this idea take off you heard it hear first
