Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

I don't care, not here. Well, you raised the topic of your beloved teaching of " consciousness without nama-rupa " given to Brahmans (in DN 11) & Brahma Gods (in MN 49). Sujato appears to say its not Nibbana. :pig: It is you who bring Sujato into this, honestly i don't care what he thinks. I unders...

Well Sujato is not here to speak for himself and i doubt he authorized you to proclaim alignment with Waharaka on his behalf so better leave it at that.
Sujato has written about this, here:

you hold Vinnanam Anidassanam not referring to Nibbana.
Sad but true. We certainly both agree here. Add Bhikkhu Sujato also.

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

well then you have not read this thread. I have read my posts in this thread. :thumbsup: You ideas are bad too so you can well apply it to yourself. In example you and Lal have one thing in common in that you hold Vinnanam Anidassanam not referring to Nibbana. Thus you find yourself in the company ...

Re: How does the self view arises ?

Greetings James, Are we born with self view ? If not why ? When does it arises ? How does the mind give rise to self view ? Paticcasamuppada (if understood in keeping with the type of explanations from vens. Nanananda, Nanavira et.al.) explains this in great depth and precision. I could explain it ...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

.. "remained hidden"... Not sure what the above is about but I have not read anyone on this topic referring to "hidden meanings". Instead, the posters are merely pointing out the obvious, per sutta, namely, consciousness does not cease for the Arahant. That an Arahant is conscious and has conscious...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

One thing to wit is how all these hidden treasures of ideas never even made it into the Theravadin commentaries (which don't set the bar for accuracy very high). Not having gained a footing in neither the canon or the commentaries these ideas "remained hidden", that is the explaination given, "hidde...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

These ideas of Defiled or Purified Consciousness are very wrong because they imply that it is the Same Consciousness that is being purified, thus you friends are conceiving of a non-existant Entity which persists thru time. Much like Sati; Now on that occasion a pernicious view had arisen in a bhikk...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Wherein one equates cessation of vinnana with the cessation of dukkha that is entirely due to the facts that Vinnana is a supporting condition for NamaRupa and is dependently arisen thus with cessation of Vinnana the cessation of namarupa is implied in it's entirety and therefore the cessation of Ag...
