Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

Yes, you do not need to subject yourself to that, if you are uncontrolled and go about provoking and attacking and such. That is for no one's benefit, and what ever was said to you does not make it right. It's not as if your motives are wholly bad, it's just that when you let your anger post for yo...

Re: Is Nibbana experienced at mind-sense base? Now that would be heresy

Hi rightviewftw, Its possible that having a look at chapter 7 "Attending to the Deathless" in the book "The Island - An Anthology of the Buddha's Teachings on Nibbanna" by Ajahn Pasanno and Ajahn Amaro might be helpful. https://www.abhayagiri.org/books/451-the-island With kind regards, Aloka :anjal...

Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

... Seems like you have had some experience with this. I don't really have much more to add, i have however concluded that on this board it is better to ignore certain people completely or not post at all as long as such behaviors are allowed. What gets me is if i talk to someone and other people s...

He says that it is easily misunderstood yes. What is that i supposedly missed? I did not cite him as authority, i just think he answered most of those questions well. I might be confused about what point you wanted to make. It sounded like you were positing some unconditioned thingy to become one w...

... Since that book is a collection of sutta passages, you might find it helpful. That chapter, in fact, discusses such suttas as: ... I am just not at all a fan of Ven.

Re: Nibbana experienced at mind-sense base... NOT

Here a quote from another member of the forum pertaining to this; https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=32327&start=90#p480455 If we are to take that interpretation that "nibbana" is a field of reality beyond "mentality" and "materiality", one can still assume, that, yes, there is no experie...

Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

Greetings, However i am exploring long term solutions to eliminate such non-sensical behavior entirely. There is only one person in whom one can ever "eliminate such non-sensical behavior entirely". It's a delusional authoritarian fantasy to presume it is otherwise. I figured that if a person does ...

Re: Nibbana experienced at mind-sense base... NOT

The system which fascilitates the manifestation of various states is in itself unchanging, being the same system all along the system is merely going from one state to another. One can thus point out an unchanging constant in the changing. In this way the system itself can be understood to be uncha...

Re: How to deal with ignorant brutes in a discussion

Greetings, I'll take that at face value, but let's just say that there's a lot of whinging and moaning from certain people, who aren't doing their cause any favours by exhibiting many of the same behaviours they complain about in others. Is it so hard just to be decent and civilized? Is it really s...

Re: Is Nibbana experienced at mind-sense base?

I think the eightfold path referring to the cessation the six sense spheres is referring to nibbana without remainder of fuel. And I’m just gonna chuck a bunch of sutta quotes at you to suggest my point. ... Yes you got it. However there is another meaning for Nibbana as Deathless. Where that same ...
