Re: What is the difference between Samma Sati and Yoniso Manasikara?

That means in ...

Hi Bunks
Let it go.
Think about the contribution he made to Dhamma propagation when he was alive.
Perhaps he must have been reborn in a better place if he did not attain Nibbana before he passed away.
Pay attention to your practice. Do not waste your time.

Re: Becoming in Dependant Origination

It is not such a bad idea to (make a trip) experience Brahama world before you attain Arahantship.

Re: Why state of deprivation is not mentioned in Bhava Sutta?

Because the Bhava Sutta is not about "re-birth". To be "re-born", 1st "death" must occur
Sorry I do not understand you.
The question is why Bhava Sutta mentioned only three major categories, sensual becoming, Form becoming and formless becoming but not the state of deprivation.

Re: The Grand Unified Theory of Dhamma?

In my opinion, the Grand Unified Theory of Dhamma is more in line with Mahayana.
Even the idea of Gandhabba also the idea of Mahayana, not Theravada.
