Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

just to expand this topic about the risk to build some image of inferior arhants or some preeminence of jhanas over wisdom: "In this way, in the Manorathapurani, Buddhaghosa tends to explain the arahant who does not contact with body the eight deliverances as a dry-insight arahant exclusively. Howev...

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

just to expand this topic about arhants, inside SN 8.7 the Buddha explain the arhants classification in 4 types: 1 - triple-knowledge (tevijja) 2 - six super knowledges (chalabhiñña) 3 - liberated in both ways (ubhatobhagavimutta) 4 - liberated by wisdom (paññavimutta). from this short classificatio...

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

All Ugghatitannu and Vipancitannu must also have mastery of jhana. For some of them it happens ( the mastery)almost instantly during the processes leading to arahatship- like with vakkali.They are rare and wonderful and only arise near the time of the Buddha. not anymore. from what source you extra...

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

I must be missing something. You say the "one text explain the Dhamma degeneration would go to favour the type of people suitable for jhana practice". Which text and why do you say that? because if we look to the case of arhants, the jhana-arhants are the first to disappear while bare-insight arhan...

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

well, my question was addressed to know the text source of dissappearence of ugghalitaññu and vipañcitaññu as Robert quoted.
And also to know why the lost of these qualities seem to go in opposite direction depending comments on arhants or disciples.

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

There are nothing conflict between pāli canons. It is the reader's fail, again. If you can understand all my view, 99.99% of pāli canons are completely perfectly compatible with each others. Let's see: In Aṅ.A. (manoratha.1) ekadhammādipālivaṇṇanā antaradhānakathā , there is the explanation: ...Ete...

Re: Pure Land Buddhism and the Pali Canon

There is nothing held back to be revealed later. So my view is perhaps Pureland is more of an attributed teaching rather than direct from the historical Buddha. In many Mahayana sutras such as the Lotus sutra, the Buddha quotes the name of the sutra over and over, but of course this would have been...

Re: Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

Again in the Netti (746)it says that the Buddha teaches insight [alone] to one who is guidable (neyya) and teaches in detail to neyya. At this time (acording to the texts) there are only padaparama and neyya. Padaparama cannot attain in this life, although they can in future lives.. We - so the The...

Re: Are spiritual people depressed and unhappy and poor?

agree with your remarks about the market with the sadness. I think it is interesting the SN 35.97, in where the missing of joy appears to be related with a lack of restraint regarding the senses and intellect. In our times the overstimulation of the senses and using information is the rule, although...
