We can NEVER get answers to these questions by using Sanskrit literature
Mate, that tells me you didn't look at the Pāli. It's literally the same thing.

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

May I ask you what is the meaning of the word kāmacchanda? You may read the post " Key to Calming the Mind – The Five Hindrances " to know more about the five hindrances including kāmacchanda. So kamacchanda is translated as five sense desires in that article. My question is still the same. If one ...

Why do terra and earth have different symbols?

Why does fire have two different symbols?

Re: Maraṇasati in non-buddhist literature

I wanted to respond to you, Zom, but I was unsure of how to do so politely. The clip you shared of orthodox Eastern Europe reminded me of accounts of naked śramaṇa, like Kassapa as attested to in SN41.9, and ascetics to acted like dogs, attested to in sources like DN 24, who sometimes apparently "di...

This monk is dead to the world:

His vestments hide his body, replaced as it is with outward symbols of the instruments of the passion, the devices used to kill Jesus.

Re: Consider closing the Waharaka Thread

And how do we know who knows what the true Dhamma is? By comparing what Lord Buddha had said with what others say. The issue with Waharaka is that people are making different claims about what the Lord Buddha actually said, and what he meant when he said it. Unfortunately, there is no way of checki...

Re: The Gandhabba

Why not? If the gandhabba isn't an intermediate being, or intermediate state of being, what else would it be? In sammutisacca, a non-arahant who has just died. In paramatthasacca, I would suppose it to be the paṭisandhi-viññāṇā . Not that the commentaries explicitly say so, but this seems to me the...

Re: The Gandhabba

As far as I understood, Commy just says that it is a dying person, that's it .) It doesn't really make sense, if that's just it. Why not? There has to be more material. Otherwise there is an antarabhāva. And we know that no such thing exists in Theravāda. Some years ago I looked up all the commenta...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Afaik this is non existent, it is perfectly well within ToS to deny logic and reject the nature of "proof" let alone "evidence" if one's heart so desire. Buddhism along with logic, evidence, contradition and proof are subjective terms around here and anybody can claim to be a Buddhist and spam thei...

Re: The Gandhabba

So the gandhabba is something like a "virtual being" in the manner of a "virtual particle"? As far as I understood, Commy just says that it is a dying person, that's it .)
