While this blog's author is thinking that bragging is not noble at all, he still strives for True & Spiritual Nobility on Buddha's Way.
i got inspired by Lama Ole Nydahl's words for trying that Way.
According to Buddhism, Harmlessness is Noble, Protecting is Noble, Gaining Merit is Noble, Killing is not, Stealing is not - i think.
It's better to Protect without violence, preventing conflicts instead.
Stealing from Enemies is not Noble as well, even if it's to share amongst ours, i think.
i still wish to share meaningfully, what i earn honestly.
Martial Arts can be noble, for they teach kids good manners, self-responsibility, strength & self-confidence so they do not need to prove anything by violence.
Yet still, Martial Artists can keep calm mind when faced with dangers, without fear, without doubts - this helps them to Truly Protect their loved ones, families, friends, allies & themselves, using minimum force approach as well.
Buddha Shakyamuni trained Martial Arts as well, when he was living as prince in the palace at his youth.
Noble Eightfold Path.
i think i read that Dana-Sila-Bhavana practice is a Noble Eightfold Path practice for lay people - not sure anymore, however.
Even if it's not the Noble Eightfold Path on Yogi's Diamond Way, it's at least a good start, i think.
i still wish to be on a True & Spiritual Noble Path on a Diamond Way Yogi's Path, for benefit of all.
Complete Noble Eightfold Path consists of:
Moral virtue (Sanskrit: śīla, Pāli: sīla).
3. Right speech.
4. Right action.
5. Right livelihood.
Concentration (Sanskrit and Pāli: samādhi).
6. Right effort.
7. Right mindfulness.
8. Right concentration.
Insight, wisdom (Sanskrit: prajñā, Pāli: paññā).
