Re: Dhamma and Mathematics

It's true, it's just a language ;) But I found that using maths to describe Dhamma can be intresting ;) Actualy it seems that Lord Buddha and other great Masters used maths quite often by mean of similies to describe Dhamma. Because maths is a language of relationships, and using smilies is also a l...

Re: Dhamma and Mathematics

The conditioned world is subject to a set of lows known as Niyama. Kamma Niyama, Dhamma Niyama, Utu Niyama, Bijuniyama and Citta Niyama If I am not mistaken the Niyama such as Dhamma may be explained in mathematics etc. However, mathematics alone might not cover the whole set of phenomena. Oh i see...

Re: What is the reason that only a human can attain Nibbana?

If my memory is good, it's said that it's The Buddha that can manifest only in humain world conditions... But Iam not sure :shrug:

It is good thinking. However applicable only to a mundane existence.
The way I understand this can not be applied to supermundane as it is unconditioned.
Can you tell more Sarath ?:)
I don't see what you mean

Dhamma and Mathematics

Hello friends :anjali: It's said that the mathematics are the language of the World, that they shows the relationship between dhammas, and our task as practitioners is to se see these relationship in way to deconstruct and dispationate our minds. So... It seems to me that Sila Samadhi and Panna are ...

Re: Are thirty-seven enlightenment factors in a particular order?

just saying that N8P it's not matter of religion, but a matter of practice. Agree. What matters is not the lable. However if a person has not gone to the refuge (faith) of Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha it is not possible to accept the person is following the Noble Eightfold Path. Muslims, Christians an...

Re: Are thirty-seven enlightenment factors in a particular order?

So for me it's not matter of religion, but matter of practice. And I will feel closer to some Muslim or Christian or Hindu who practice N8P, rather to some true Buddhist who don't practice N8P... I have never come across a Muslim, Christian or Hindu who practices Noble Eightfold Path! Perhaps you f...

Re: Are thirty-seven enlightenment factors in a particular order?

:goodpost: Alino But the question is those factors are in the teaching of other religions too. How Buddhism make it different? Right View and Right Intention are the key factors I think. But as Buddha said if there is N8P there is Aryans, so i have conviction that one person can be of another tradi...

Re: World transcending kamma

Does your question mean "How is kamma transformed into a kamma that transcends the world?" Yes Iam sorry i will write one more time. Answer is wisdom. Why? Because while you have any sensorial experiance, pleasant or unpleasant, if you apply wisdom then you can LEARN from that experience. Not learn...

Re: Are thirty-seven enlightenment factors in a particular order?

The Path is not linear and strictly gradual, but interdependent and spiral... For exemple someone with strong wisdom faculty will need just a little concentration to penetrate Dhamma. Someone with strong concentration will need just a little wisdom to penetrate Dhamma. By developing sila we develop ...

Re: World transcending kamma

What makes kamma world transcending kamma? N8P culminating in Wisdom... What is wisdom? Wisdom is a seeing conditioned things as impermanent, insatisfacory, selfless phenomenas. How we can see directly things throug 3 characterstics? By eliminating 5 hindraces and realising tha there is space betwe...

Re: Wrong vs disagree

But... While some one say us : "you are wrong!" And it hurt us, we should understand that we take our knowledge to seriously and there is self-identification with that knowledge, that's why we are hurt and feel pain. It hurts only in places where there is attachment, so we should investigate : Why i...

Re: Wrong vs disagree

"You are wrong" - suggest that "Iam right, and I know it" "I desagree" - suggest that "my opinion is different from yours, but Iam aware that it's just my subjective opinion" As it is very difficult to know for 100% your own, or someone else, gedree of penetration in Dhamma. And as all is uncertain,...
