Re: "Venerable Buddhaghosa was a Hindu!"

In what ways can we establish that Ven Buddhaghosa was a "Hindu?" 1. Find a sutta passage that is at odds with the view of one or another of Hinduism's six darśanas and see how Buddhaghosa interprets it. 2. If he attempts to harmonize the sutta passage with the said darśana, then we can conclude th...

Re: Shared karma

... The Theravadin understanding of kammabandhū is not that we are related to each other through our kamma, but rather that we have kamma itself as our relative. The commentaries treat the term as a dative or genitive (not an instrumental) tappurisa compound: Dative kammaṃ etesaṃ bandhūti 'kammaban...

Re: Outdated Vinaya for monks

I am trying to see "anicca" as a point to revisit the vinaya rules that are in conflict at this time. Changes do need. I don't see any conflict that the Vinaya creates. But you are right, due to Anicca, changes are needed... by adding more clarification and Additions, not Removals (as you seem to i...
