Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Yes. In the Samyutta Nikāya ( Anicca Vagga ), many suttas including Ajjhattanicca Sutta, Bahiranicca Sutta , and Yadanicca sutta , the Buddha stated that the three characteristics of “this world” are RELATED to each other: “ yadaniccam tam dukkham, yam dukkham tadanattā ” (“ yad aniccam tam dukkham,...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

One remains helpless UNTIL one comprehends anicca nature, loses cravings for worldly things, and attains Nibbana. When one attains Nibbana, in Sinhala language one becomes "natha", not "anatha" (or anatta) anymore.

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

@SarathW:
My answer is the same as above. I don't want to waste my time responding to your questions, which are based on an incorrect interpretation of the foundation of Buddha Dhamma: How suffering arises due to the anicca nature, as I pointed out above.

Thank you!
I was not aware of the English-Pali dictionary. The Pali-English dictionary has been one of my resources for sometime.

justindesilva had asked about the Dhamma­cakkap­pa­vat­ta­na Sutta : " https://legacy.suttacentral.net/pi/sn56.11 ". Since this is really the key issue, I thought about providing an analysis on the relevant verse, for the cause of arising of suffering in this world . It is expressed in the following...

@justindesilva You may be referring to the statement that we hear often: “Anything in this world lasts only a brief moment. Any object is formed and destroyed within a short time of the order of a thought moment. Then it is re-formed and the process continues ceaselessly. What you see now is not the...

Re: pativiratō hōti - interesting translation from by puredhamma.net

@justindesilva You said: "Yet in dammacakkapavattana sutta the term anitya means nothing else but momentary change." Can you provide the Pali verse from the sutta and explain where it says anitya means momentary change? This is a critical point. " Anitya " is not a Pali word, it is a Sanskrit word. ...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

@SarathW:

I do not have a link for the Buddha Jayanthi Tipitaka, even though it is likely to be online. I have the physical book set (most of it).

Link to the Paticca Samuppada section at Puredhamma.net: "https://puredhamma.net/paticca-samuppada/".
