Re: The Pali words: saṅkhaya & parikkhaya???

I have made many posts already on the forum about the complete opposite difference of " cittasankhara " & " manosankhara ". You mean like here: https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=35367&p=529267&hilit=manosa%E1%B9%85kh%C4%81r%C4%81&sid=161aaae4813527121d28a7bcc3845244#p529241 and in your f...

Re: The Pali words: saṅkhaya & parikkhaya???

I'm off. Enough wasted time. I hope not. While assisting M e with one approved answer generated great merit, I hope your other verbal kammas did not make a greater amount of demerit. I AM often shocked how little 'ottappa' often exists in reincarnation believers & fundamentalists. Best wishes and t...

Re: The Pali words: saṅkhaya & parikkhaya???

The term "nama-rupa" obviously retains its Brahmanistic meaning of "naming-forms" rather than has the Buddhist meaning of "mentality-materiality. ?!?! Lesson of "Brahmanism" from someone who just encountered Veda for the first time a day ago, I suppose. (Stackex or SC are sound no references to be ...

I think there are problems with the above verse either due to it addressed to a deva in the language understood by the deva. !?!?!?! ________ The translations appears strange because they refer to an extinction of consciousness yet also to an appeasement of feelings.

Re: The Pali words: saṅkhaya & parikkhaya???

As for your good self, you were able to answer one of my questions but not all (such as omitting saṅkhaya vs parikkhaya) but i think you made some good quality merit (leading to heaven). The Buddha taught the results of merit often vary in their quantum dependent upon Whom the merit is given . ... ...

Re: What is the difference between Sakkhayaditthi and Atthanuditthi?

Although this word does not exist in Sanskrit, Sakkāya could be decomposed as follows: sak (√ शक् śak) + Ka + iya lit. "to be able (to be like) what belongs to Ka" (where Ka is the other name for the god Prajāpati [made selves]) ॰ईय -īya forms possesives in Sanskrit. & sak means "to be able". ______...

Wow! By sheer coincidence, I opened the Rig Veda for the 1st time ever to research... O boy! Doodoot is just getting into Veda. I must say that I come from the Vedic world, before I became a Buddhist. The Rg was my Veda of predilection. And I left the Vedic world, because of the mess it engendered....

Re: Strike against cosmology taken as it is real

Once again, we have to wonder if this sutta and its parallel fit into an early teaching of the Buddha. Because they diverge quite a lot. SN 36.4 Bhikkhus, when the uninstructed worldling makes the statement, ‘In the great ocean there is a bottomless abyss,’ he makes such a statement about something ...

Re: My new view of SN 12.15. Is it right or is it wrong?

And I suppose we agree in our reading of a satta in SN 5.10. https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=35685&start=30#p534010 Puthujjana are generally in agreement. That is why they are "the many folks". "Satta" in SN 5.10 appears literally a "view". It is not biological. SN 5.10 cannot be any m...

Satta is not an "idea". :roll: Why now do you assume 'a being'? Mara, have you grasped a view ? This is a heap of sheer constructions: Here no being is found.

Re: My new view of SN 12.15. Is it right or is it wrong?

... Now, let's answer your remarks. Satta is not an "idea". This is why I refer to the parallels. The parallel to SN 23.2 (SA 122) states: The Buddha said to Rādha: “Being defiled by attachment to and entangled with bodily form ― this is called a living being. Being defiled by attachment to and ent...
