Re: The relation about Dhamma and reality itself

The scientific theory that the Earth is “spherical” has now been confirmed as true. Truth has been established without any possible future refutation But some people may not still believe it. This is why that you will never be able to pass your experience to someone else with words. We have to unde...

Re: The relation about Dhamma and reality itself

We can say that the khandhas are not the self, but does that imply that there is not self at all? How can we reach that conclusion without any doubts?
Could you describe what you understand as self?

What is the basis of sutta numbering?

What is the basis (who gave these numbers?) of sutta numbering?
Are all English translations carry the same Sutta numbers?
Why the English Sutta number different to say Sinhalese translation?

Judgmental is a negative word to describe someone who often rushes to judgment without reason.
It is in Christianity. Were you once a Christian? Thanks

Re: Ajahn Sucitto says mindfulness is "not judgmental", I say it is very judgmental.

Judgmental is a negative word to describe someone who often rushes to judgment without reason. The adjective judgmental describes someone who forms lots of opinions — usually harsh or critical ones — about lots of people. Judgmental types are not open-minded or easygoing. https://www.bing.com/search...

Re: Did Adi Shankaracharya defeat Buddhism?

Perhaps they don’t regard form or feeling or perception or choices or consciousness as self. Nor do they have such a view: ‘The self and the cosmos are one and the same. After passing away I will be permanent, everlasting, eternal, and imperishable.’ Still, they have such a view: ‘I might not be, an...

Re: Why the wealthiest person not buddhist ?

Society's definition of "net worth" is one's total claims of ownership control over material things. Material wealth is an attempt at a store of value. Buddhism recognizes that we are all subject to old age, illness, death and rebirth. Ownership of karma is the true store of value. Rather than hoar...

Re: Did Adi Shankaracharya defeat Buddhism?

I have listened to the first video. He has no idea about what Buddha taught. Buddha very clearly asked what is the basis if someone says there is another thing outside the five aggregate. As far as Buddha concern five aggregate is all. (eye, ear etc.) Rupa Jivitandriya and Nama Jivitandriya are taug...

Re: SN22.79 Fabricate the fabricated?

I like Ven. Thanissaro's translation. "And why do you call them 'fabrications'? Because they fabricate fabricated things, thus they are called 'fabrications.' What do they fabricate as a fabricated thing? For the sake of form-ness, they fabricate form as a fabricated thing. For the sake of feeling-n...
