Re: Did Adi Shankaracharya defeat Buddhism?

Buddhism seems to me like the easiest religion/teaching/path/etc. to defeat. Simply because it has no selling points. There is nothing in Buddhism that an ordinary run-of-the-mill person would be interested in or find value in (apart from a few general teachings on morality that can be found in man...

Re: Pali Term: Ceto, Ceteti

In your glosses, "ceto" isn't an adjective, it's a part of compound. Such compounds are translated in English with adjectives. Thank you Assaji. I found examples "ceto" that appear to be a "noun", such as " parasattānaṃ parapuggalānaṃ cetasā ceto paricca pajānāti ." Elsewhere, we were discussing "c...

Re: Pali Term: Ceto, Ceteti

'Ceto' is often taken to be equivalent to 'citta'. Dear Assaji & other esteemed Pali gurus Having browsed a mere handful of suttas, it appears often "ceto" appears used as an "adjective" (example, as "mental") and "citta" appears primarily used as a "noun" (example, as "mind"). Is this impression a...

Judgmental is a negative word to describe someone who often rushes to judgment without reason.
It is in Christianity. Were you once a Christian? Thanks

The above proves nothing.
The above proves feelings are the "mind conditioner" and not the "mental condition". The above proves feelings are the condition for or conditioner of greed, hatred & delusion.

Re: Mindulness of Breathing - Thanissaro

I provided tons of sources. Sutta source: i “Bhikkhus, dependent on the eye and forms, eye-consciousness arises; the meeting of the three is contact; with contact as condition there arises a feeling felt as pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant. When one is touched by a pleasant feeli...

Well, Buddhism 101 requires one to provided sources/references to back up their claim.
I provided the source - MN 148. You have provided nothing.

Re: Mindulness of Breathing - Thanissaro

By the way, care to provide sources/references that say only Buddhadassa is right, while Thanissaro, Bodhi, and Nanamoli are wrong? There are many suttas (e.g MN 148) that say pleasant feeling conditions lust in the mind and unpleasant feelings condition aversion in the mind. Therefore, feelings ar...

Definitions for ceto, NOT Cetasika
We are discussing "citta" in "cittasankhara". "Citta" means "mind".

Cetasika is not mental. Cetasika is mental factors. The suttas, CMOA, AND Pali Dictionary are clear. :roll: Concise Pali English Dictionary cetasika adjective mental; (nt.), a mental property.

No. You are defeating your own argument. I already pointed out why you are wrong.
"Citta" is not "mental". "Citta" is "mind". The sutta quotes are clear.

You are wrong. No. You are defeating your own argument. I already posted only Bhikkhu Buddhadasa has translated this correctly. "Citta" is "mind" and not "mental". Perception and feeling are mental properties tied up with the mind , that’s why perception and feeling the mind conditioner.” Saññā ca ...

Re: Mindulness of Breathing - Thanissaro

Wrong. Language rendered by Sujato is being discussed. No. Here, a bhikkhu is perplexed about the Teacher, doubts him, is not convinced about him and does not place confidence in him.
