Re: Is it a schism making action?

Hello guys, I used to be a mahayanist, but now I think I belong to no specific school of buddhism. But I believe the Pali canon to be likely words of the Buddha more than any other sutras and commentaries. I want to write in mahayana oriented group in Facebook about various concepts like Arahant vs...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

“Taṃ kiṃ maññasi, ānanda, rūpaṃ niccaṃ vā aniccaṃ vā”ti? “Aniccaṃ, bhante”. “Yaṃ panāniccaṃ dukkhaṃ vā taṃ sukhaṃ vā”ti? “Dukkhaṃ, bhante”. “Yaṃ panāniccaṃ dukkhaṃ vipariṇāmadhammaṃ, kallaṃ nu taṃ samanupassituṃ: ‘etaṃ mama, esohamasmi, eso me attā’”ti? “No hetaṃ, bhante”.

Re: One "Point" which includes vs. excludes

adding for above post, “Sir, may the Buddha please teach me Dhamma in brief. When I’ve heard it, I’ll live alone, withdrawn, diligent, keen, and resolute.”“sādhu me, bhante, bhagavā saṃkhittena dhammaṃ desetu, yamahaṃ bhagavato dhammaṃ sutvā eko vūpakaṭṭho appamatto ātāpī pahitatto vihareyyan”ti. “T...

Re: One "Point" which includes vs. excludes

More than once I have spoken of Sandha sutta on my thread on DW. It is critical, for in there Buddha clearly points out that only the unwise engage in Arupas, and that thread is on 4 jhanas. other people who read Sandha Sutta might not interpret it like you do i assume it is this quote, "He is abso...

Re: purified sila, a starting point for kusala dhamma. Sutta

Now, mendicants, pleasure linked to sensuality is low, crude, ordinary, ignoble, and pointless. Indulging in such happiness is a principle beset by pain, harm, stress, and fever, and it is the wrong way.Tatra, bhikkhave, yo kāmapaṭisandhisukhino somanassānuyogo hīno gammo pothujjaniko anariyo anatt...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

- The Buddha told Magandhiya that this gāthā (verse) came to the Vedic literature from the previous Buddha (Buddha Kassapa), whose Buddha Sāsana had since disappeared: “Pubbakehesā, māgaṇḍiya, arahantehi sammā­sambud­dhehi gāthā bhāsitā.“ why you name vedic literature? “But Māgaṇḍiya, when you hear...

Re: One "Point" which includes vs. excludes

For all intents and purposes it said samadhi is not about dwelling on the nose tip. i would like to comment on the 'nose tip' one, 113. The rest need not be extended likewise. Why? When a man extends the sign of in-breaths and out-breaths, only a quantity of wind is extended, and it has a definite ...

Re: Sati(mindfulness) as a point of branching out, Sutta

What is dasāti, dhātu, sati? I wonder if dhātu is a body what buddha(enlightened being) is depending on or identifying with and working with. It's nothing like that. The verse is just a summary of the titles of the ten suttas in the preceding vagga. Dasāti = dasa + iti, which means "thus are the te...

Re: purified sila, a starting point for kusala dhamma. Sutta

... SN 47.3 ... What is kusala dhamma and what is akusala dhamma? it can't(or can?) be sila/morality/ethics. Yes, 'Dhamma' in that context includes sila. ok And how does a mendicant grounded on ethics develop and cultivate the noble eightfold path? Kathañca, bhikkhave, bhikkhu sīlaṃ nissāya sīle pa...

Re: STED 4sp satipatthana formula, 4 jhanas occurring simultaneously according to canonical Nettippakarana

To answer your question, not all the Abhidhamma commentaries are wrong, but in the case of breath meditation, late Theravada and Vism. interpretation is criminally wrong, completely out of whack with earlier Theravada works such as Vimt. (which uses early Abhidhamma), KN Ps, and pali EBT and agama ...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

8. Even though a “person” does not exist in the paramattha sense, any living person has to use “me” and “mine” in interactions with others. Even the Buddha talked about “HIS” previous lives. He often started a discourse by saying, “let ME explain this concept.” - Furthermore, the Buddha emphasized ...
