Can we ask questions which could be meant to teach one a lesson? What is the rule, the purpose of questions in Dhamma-Practice?
Given that there have been ideas that "teaching" answers could harm the purpose of questions and answers, how about teaching-questions?
This includes questions where certain agendas, even for the benefits of those who are asked, could be supposed. Are such question good and supportive for you and for others? Good for the community's purpose, whatever it might be?
Maybe it would be better to supply an example of what is meant by this.
So is there any fear that questioning each other back and forth, could maybe lead to loss of anything? Is it usual? Or is there a certain idea of "real" question in "real" world, with an "real" agenda? Or should it maybe be always clear, who is lacking (asking) in a certain issue and who is giving (answering)? Maybe a kind of receiver-giver, or teacher-student phobia could limit such ways.
And yes, also this question has many agendas on many levels.
