The review queue has already picked up a few answers as low quality, simply, I think, due to their brevity. It seems such answers go against the SE model, but at the same time they are an accepted pedagogical methodology in many types of Buddhist dissemination; should we allow them here or should they be discouraged?
Here's an example of the issue:
Every Buddhist believes in Eternity or Samsara. So, how can I imagine of Samsara?. What is the starting of it ? Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
Samsara begins when subject and object separate from each other.
Edit: Another example:
I have seen Zen monks in meditation, usually with one monk supervising. The monk supervising usually carries a wand of some sort. Every once in a while he would rest the wand on the shoulder of one of the monks and then respectfully hit his shoulder. It did not seem very forceful yet I found this confusing because to me it seemed as if it may be a method of harm or violence. I would like clarification on this practie.
Why does the supervising monk do this to the meditating monks?
It's a remedy for sleepiness. Nothing special. It's a little pat on the back to keep you awake.
