Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

Hello , Worldtraveller. I am of the impression that you didn't quite read my postings. Introduction of the Anandajoti Bhikkhu’s “A Comparative Edition of the Dhammapada” mentions the names of scholars and the titles of their publications in the same way. If they are messed up, can you give the corre...

Re: Bhikkhu Analayo's anapanasati/jhana book?

Sorry, don''t know nor have heard anything about such book. I would be able to ask him in December at one of his meditation courses.

I'd greatly appreciate if you could share a link to the talk (if there is one).

Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

However, as I mentioned here, having the stanza or the Dhamma/meaning of it somewhere else in the first four nikāyas would actually prove legitimacy. Well, this is obviously a hugely problematic judgement. Because, 1) Many materials in other collections are older and more "authoritative" , than the...

Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

All the credit to him for giving this at least (he said reference numbers not yet thoroughly verified): Dhp 28 - Yogabhāṣya 1 40 Dhp 47 - Śhāntiparva. 9939. Mahābhārata Dhp 48 - Śhāntiparva. 6540. Mahābhārata Dhp 106 - Manusmṛti 5. 53 Dhp 109 - Manusmṛti 2. 121 Dhp 127 - Garudapurāṇa Adyāṣa 113‒20 ...

Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

Can you source this claim to the corresponding stanza from each side of the text? Can you establish linguistic precedence in the Hindu texts? It was my assumption that the Dhammapada preceded the Mahābhārata and Manusmṛti by hundreds of years? Which stanzas? Which Hindu texts? Evidence thanks . :po...

Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

What the Brough's monograph has shown, actually, is that there existed a very early written tradition of the Dharmapada, the tradition dating back to 2-3 centuries BC... So the text is likely one of the first written Buddhist text in history, that was likely commited to writing just 100 years after ...

Re: Dhammapada an EBT?

I have the book, it's great. Something like a final say of a distinguished Sri Lankan Abhidhamma scholar on the topic of Early Buddhism ('s teachings).
The book is in fact based on the Pali texts on the topic of early Buddhist teachings.
Why do you say that? Did I say something incorrectly ?

Re: Help with R. Gethin's article on Abhidhamma/Abhidharma

Bhante, thank you.

Take a look at the menu on the left ("In This Article)". There is a comprehensive set of topics , that is not (apparently) available in that preview, that you posted.

The whole article by Gethin is around 30 pp. long. (It's written on Gethin's uni page).
