Re: How did the Buddha disciples get to memorize everything?

virtue improves memory by eliminating the blockage of remorse
so too charity, stinginess
this practice makes for a very clear and pure mind, by which you could see quite clearly

Re: Lying: Taking "everyone is responsible for themselves" to the next level

Did the Buddha ever taught in the sutta that there are situations where there is ok to lie? So there are Buddhists who defend lying to some extent. They say it's sometimes necessary to lie. To spare people's feelings, to avoid trouble, even to save someone's life. And that it shouldn't be a problem...

Re: In which sutta does the Buddha explain what no self means?

I would like to understand whether the typical Western understanding of no self is the same as the traditional understanding. Does anyone have suggestions for which texts I can begin with to understand what is traditionally meant by no self? categorical 'no self' i have not heard the buddha declare...

Re: Namarupa as name & form or mentality & materiality ?

So what IS happening outside the mind with your interpretation? how would i know? And what IS the source of sense-objects with your interpretation?

Re: Namarupa as name & form or mentality & materiality ?

The view that sights, sounds, tangibles, tastes and odours derive from form is also in line with contemporary worldly science if we replace 'form' with 'materiality': sounds derive from vibrating matter, tastes and odours from molecules (matter) connecting to material receptors, sights and tangible...

Re: Namarupa as name & form or mentality & materiality ?

Sorry but I'm struggling to see the relevance of your post to the discussion. I didn't say rupa was eternal or whatever, I said it wasn't mind-made. Have another look at the nidana "definition" for nama-rupa in SN12.2, where the rupa aspect is straightforwardly described as the four great elements ...
