Re: Translating saññāmanasikārā

Tassa mayhaṃ, āvuso, iminā vihārena viharato kāma sahagatā saññāmanasikārā samudācaranti. While I was in that meditation, perceptions and attentions accompanied by sensual pleasures beset me. (Sujato) As I remained there, I was beset with attention to perceptions dealing with sensuality. (Thanissar...

Re: Sex before marriage

dont cast aspersions. I was talking about OURSELVES, Thanks but it seems you were talking about your self. having grown up in a culture influenced by the hang-ups around sex, that the Church (or in your case, Islam?) seems to encourage in people. I went to Catholic schools when young, so I also adm...

Re: The real meaning of AN10.58 enumeration #9

Friend, on what ground do you then proclaim that only the five spiritual faculties gain footing in the Deathless and not all the dhammas, in what would the other dhammas be gaining ground and what would be their basis? Akusula (unwholesome) dhamma (such as greed, hatred & delusion) don't merge with...

Re: The real meaning of AN10.58 enumeration #9

Friend, as i read it, it says that the five spiritual faulties gain footing in the Deathless, i don't see anything about the "supramundane path factors"... Thank you, friend. By "supramundane path factors", I am referring to the dhammas included within the below; which is any dhamma that can lead t...

Re: The real meaning of AN10.58 enumeration #9

He does not follow Bodhi's translation of the SN 48.44 As previously mentioned, Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations vary: VBB's MN was published in 1995, which used "mentality-materiality" for "nama-rupa" and "end" for "pariyosānā" and previously used "merge" for "gadha". VBB's SN was published in 1999, w...

Re: The real meaning of AN10.58 enumeration #9

pariyosānā = completion or final end; such as in the phrase " maranapariyosānām me jivitam " - " our lives have death as their completion " or MN 29 & MN 30 " akuppā cetovimutti brahmacariyaṃsāraṃ pariyosānan - unshakeable freedom of mind is heartwood and final end/completion of holy life ".

Re: Mindfulness of Breathing

i have no idea as i have not reached the 1st jhana. When the 1st jhana is reached, all doubts will obviously disappear. When i sit i feel pleasure, serenity and breath gets calmed, if i sit long enough i get to a point where intense pleasant feeling comes as a full bodyhigh, it is similar every tim...

Re: Signs of Kali Yuga

Uddaka Ramaputta and Alara Kalama taught dhyana, it was part of his development No. The suttas report Gotama used the 4th jhana for (wisdom) enlightenment. but he didnt make a wholesale rejection of them of them as commonly known and accepted by literalists and biased people, he just realized that ...

Re: Signs of Kali Yuga

You seem to have a good brain for study, or maybe your just relying on google and copying pasting to do the thinking for you. Whilst as a practised Buddhist my mind does not get offended; the above comment is pathetic. It is impossible to know the teaching as DooDoot does by merely copying & pastin...

Re: Signs of Kali Yuga

I admit some of it is poorly translated, but its much better effort than some of the earlier translations. Can you translate pali or sanskrit, my sanskrit is improving so I would be more interested to compare translations that way. let me read through the suttas and do some research at sutta centra...
