Re: Question about Evidence of Nibanna

I think OP deserves an answer. The OP was answered, here . To understand the nibbana principle you will have to grasp the dependent (on causes) origination of perception & conception of the world within the world. The above sounds like mere unexplained rhetoric. Few people do Yes. It appears u don'...

Re: From Mahayana to Theravada

My question is; if there’s no Sangha in my home country, is practice in the Theravada tradition something which can be done alone? Welcome Taro. In Theravada, the scriptures describe the Buddha as a spiritual friend, thus his teaching is to be relied upon (refer to SN 45.2 ). Yet, once the teaching...

Re: Question about Evidence of Nibanna

perception itself depend on ignorance 100% wrong They understand: ‘ This field of perception is empty of the perception of the asava of sensuality, becoming and ignorance . That’s how emptiness is born in them — genuine, undistorted and pure. Whatever ascetics and brahmins enter and remain in the p...

Re: ordination and new monk name

Now on that occasion a cloud of smoke, a swirl of darkness, was moving to the east,...

Re: Question about Evidence of Nibanna

i think its good not to speak of nibbana as buddha himself never spoke in absolute terms... The above appears very wrong, without evidence. It seems the Buddha spoke of Nibbana in the most absolute of absolute terms. It sounds like u have a wrong teacher causing wrong view. so i wish everyone all t...

Re: Question about Evidence of Nibanna

Is buddha talking about the background blackness and blankness on which all the impermanent happens? obviously not. it seems u did not read the Buddha's teaching but appeared to ignore it. instead, it seems u are imagining ( mannati ) Hindu 'Brahman'. it seems the Buddha above is referring to the s...

Re: Question about Evidence of Nibanna

My question is: Where is the direct evidence for Nibanna? The suttas say: When one experiences the remainderless destruction of lust, the remainderless destruction of hatred and the remainderless destruction of delusion, it is in this way, too, that nibbāna is directly visible, immediate, inviting ...

Consciousness as all aggregates is not controlled by a self so a divide "involuntary / voluntary" has no basis.
Buddha taught volition is not-self therefore volition does not necessarily mean controlled by a self.

Yes. Maybe u can help me by pointing out the difference in your translation and that version.
I can't. Many famous teachers have given their opinion about how the words vitakka & vicara have a different meaning in relation to jhana. Regards
