Re: Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

yes, the whole Vipassana Movement aside from maybe Webu Sayadaw & others predating Goenka is silly :)
Well, the nanas predate those people by at least 1500 years, probably longer, so it seems premature to be dismissing them as invalid...

Re: Looking for information re: earliness & occurrence in various canons of specific doctrine

You've seen this thread? https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1270 :coffee: Kim Yes, I made a new one because that thread seems to be focused on whether the doctrine should be accepted as true or not, whereas I want to know what historical-textual evidence there is for its authenticity.

This is not solipsism. It doesn't say "my mind".
OK. But the translation still appears very dodgy. :mrgreen:
Why? Sometimes "things" is rendered as "mind-objects" but I think that is dodgy, the word is just "dhamma".

Mind precedes all things. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-made. If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox.

Re: What it means by that the mind reside in the cave?
