Re: Is this theravada?

Mahayana comes from the same root, similarity is no surprise. Nicolas gives you a good sutta, but clearly that sutta does not says 法空.
I assume that you understand Chinese, read the link.

法空,出自《法华经·药草喻品》,解释为并无独立存在的实体

Re: Is this theravada?

卷三 药草喻品第五 http://bookgb.bfnn.org/books/0122.htm ...大乘实教中,人本来无物,也不需解脱,本来没有合相,自然也没有离相;本来无生相,也没有灭相。若对无智者说 诸法总归一空 ,空了不是什么也没有了吗?无所学吗?他一生出疑惑就断了大乘种子,也就是断佛种子,亦是断众生之种子,所以说‘永失’。 Rather than "诸法总归一空", i would say "一归灭尽"; but this "一” is not the "一” in "一空". (一空) is similar to atman, as you can see from the si...

Re: Is this theravada?

A bit of back ground of the city Ayojjhā in SN22.95 Ayojjhā.-A city of the Ganges? Two visits of the Buddha to this city are recorded in the Samyutta Nikaya; on one occasion he preached the Phena Sutta (S.iii.140ff ) and on the other the Dārukkhandha Sutta (S.iv.179f). In both these references the c...

Re: momentariness not in sutta?

Yes, dhātuso, āyatanaso, paticcasamuppādaso are words that we do not see in the 7 cases. A few keys words in the 7 cases; origin, cessation (leads to) gratification, drawback, and escape. It seems unique for the appearance of the last paragraph. My usual take on sutta is the lower to be related to t...

Re: momentariness not in sutta?

Thanks Robertk! 👌 I had read thru one the simplified Chinese translation, tried the english version just now, but my brain is a bit "stone" to read anything. A glance on lakkhaņarūpa, has something on momentariness, does this appear in sutta? Edit: apology Robertk, i thought you mean pg 244 of comp...

Hi Robertk, i have not read thru that pages yet; i would prefer to come from the sutta direction for now. I did a google search and found this sutta.

Re: momentariness not in sutta?

I agree. There are very detailed instructions on how to access particular states and so on in Commentaries such as the Visuddhimagga, whereas the suttas give very brief summaries . VM is a thick book 😅, so i tend to choose a short cut, ask a teacher. It is not easy to convince suttanta people to ac...

Hi Robertk When i "develop" the spiral structure for ekaggata, there is 1 thing that i notice on the patiloma arupa, consciousness is established on the 3rd, from neither-nor to consciousness. Within 17 javana, the peculiar part is that the names, is unique when i overlap the arupa and and first 3 m...

Re: Is paññā, prajñā or prāṇa ?

Cetovimutti is the liberation of citta through samadhi (see intro & notes https://justpaste.it/5x298) - and the liberation from citta is paññāvimutti . And Nibbāna is beyond. Is paññā, thinking - > learning - > mental development (sammasamadhi) , a kind of defilement that you need to get liberated ...

Re: Are Rapture and Pleasure (Piti Sukha) Experienced in Nibbana? It Seems So!

I am not too excited about explaining it because that Dhamma is beyond conjecture and is to be directly discerned so it is far easier to explain what it is not rather than explaining what it is. Since you are not too excited, so I took priority to settle other things first; before putting forward m...
