Re: The Two Truths

I've put together a table looking at how some of the main traditions defined conventional reality and ultimate reality, which I've taken from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. A lot of it I have just copied and pasted, and obviously I have left quite a bit out. Information taken from here: h...

Re: Eternalism and Parinibbana (video)

Lol.. this group makes me laugh. The 5 khandas do not re-appear ever again and there is nothing outside of the 5 khandas. this is perfectly right. Those who have gross wrong view textually jump to conclusions and post sutta quotes out of context. It is funny and I'm glad I did not see this response...

Re: Eternalism and Parinibbana (video)

I agree there is no self I thought not-self was a better term, never mind I was uncertain then no self inevitably suggests annihilation hence not self is best Thanks for clarification. If so, I'll try to refrain from quoting that post again. btw, you once said: there is soul. Doesn't that amount to...

Re: Eternalism and Parinibbana (video)

There can be no annihilation since… Annihilationism is one of the two extremes of wrong view criticized most heavily by the Buddha (the other is eternalism, as represented by the sixth of the six view-positions). Some interpreters, citing this passage, have tried to limit the meaning of annihilatio...

Re: Eternalism and Parinibbana (video)

Don't say that, friend … Don't misrepresent the Blessed One. It's not good to misrepresent the Blessed One, for the Blessed One would not say, 'A monk with no more effluents, on the break-up of the body, is annihilated, perishes, & does not exist after death.' Yamaka Sutta . "There can be no annihi...

Moral dillusion Never seen that term: "dillusion"; not found in even some online ( and tablet's) dictionaries. Awesomely deep word, imo, regarding buddhism. Thanks.

Greetings. Since this issue keeps coming up, I'd like this thread to be a summary of the problems and issues that people have with phenomenological and existentialist approaches to the Dhamma. What bothers you about those approaches? Where do you think they're wrong? Thanks. Hello, I am quite inter...

Re: Theravada if it includes Buddhaghosa is schismatic

Interestingly Buddha Kassapa was born in India too, and I suspect all other Buddhas also. Seeing prior posts, I thought your discussions are into some Early Buddhism. Now, it's quite interesting to see quoting a late addition to the Pāli Canon , imo. Personally and experientially, I feel Ven. Buddh...

Interestingly Buddha Kassapa was born in India too, and I suspect all other Buddhas also. Kassapa was born in Varanasi, in the Deer Park at Isipatana, India for his Brahmin parents Brahmadatta and Dhanavatī, of the Kassapagotta. Kassapa lived for two thousand years in the household in three differe...
