Re: Did Buddhaghosa really "doctor" & "monopolize" the Commentaries???

Dear DW forum I recall, from verbal utterances, Thailand's Ajahn Buddhadasa held the view Buddhaghosa collected all the existing Buddhist Commentaries and edited them, even disposing of some of them. In a published book, Ajahn Buddhadasa said: Indeed, it is believed that the author of the Visuddhim...

Re: Loss of zeal or just chilling out?

Some people have mental health issues and Buddhist/Hindu practices such as yoga and med...
