comment Mindfulness during sleep
Thank you - my experience is the same, increasing mindfulness over the years has brought more and more experiences of a certain degree of "awareness during sleep" - if it is simply that, then patient endurance is the key, I suppose. _/\_

@RobMacHugh Thank you. Would you care to elaborate in an answer, extracting relevant passages as quotes?

comment How to work with praise and blame?
Since in Buddhism.SE, the expectation was answers from Buddhist perspectives. Also, asking from references from the Pali Canon should have made that clear. Furthermore, the reasons behind asking is not to discover where praise/blame are held onto, but instead what teachings are available to further any work and deepen understanding - still from a Buddhist methodology.

comment Euthanasia for animals
@SankhaKulathantille agreed, have Metta for him, for Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, all animals, humans, all beings - we are all in varying states of suffering. Hate does not do anything to others, but defiles our own minds and causes our own suffering.

comment Mindfulness during sleep
Point taken, although lay life comes in many forms, not only busy city life. ;-) There are lay people with few distractions (for instance, just not having TV helps, regardless of location), and for each of us, using the experience presented to us each moment is what we have available to work with.

comment How to work with praise and blame?
Thanks for the answer. This question is more related to references (to help in teaching) than advice (to me), and the teachings available for discovering where we hold on to the fear of blame and the desire for praise. I read a book by Pema Chodron a few years ago, with wonderful advice on methods working with praise/blame (and the other three pairs, don't recall in writing) - so I wonder whether there are places to find in any of the traditions, to work with these challenges.

comment What basic knowledge and skills are required to become a Vipassana teacher?
Bhante, perhaps the answer would benefit from sources on the 16 stages of knowledge - accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/mahasi/progress.html and the Dhamma exams? _/\_

comment What are the three marks of existence?
Although it is a novice question, it still deserves an answer that can be referred to (it probably won't be the first time this comes up). Such questions can also be asked of 'experts' - even a novice to one can be an expert to another. Suggesting for the community wiki, would be glad to see elaborate 'expert' responses to questions like this. :-)

comment Asking fundamental "beginner" questions
Well put. Not sure that others see Buddhist.SE as the place to get answers to questions requiring expert answers, though, many appear to ask questions, wondering what it is (and how it compares to 'their' religion). Can we perhaps add some community wiki entries to describe the basics?
