Re: What is the consciousness of an Ariya (Sotapanna etc) when they emerge from the Jhana.

It doesn't mean while ariya-person is not attaining lokuttara jhāna, that ariya-person will lose own ability to live without the ...

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

Few thoughts about "jhāna as prerequisite for vipassana" issue if we look form the Pa-Auk system point of view (the way I understand it). Before practicing vipassana one has first to acquire two preliminary knowledges: #1) Knowing nāma-rūpa and #2) Apprehending dependent origination. According to P...

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

I met Santi when he was a monk , and then later, about 20 years ago after he disrobed. He seemed to have a detailed pali knowledge but we disagreed on some points. Is he back in robes? Yes, he is about 13 vassa this years. His memory is incredible, but his pāli still lack, because he addicts thai t...

Re: Sujin Boriharnwanaket: quotes

You are saying that the “Maha Nayaka Sayadaws of the Myanmar Religious Affairs Department “ banned the Pa Auk book because it followed the Tipitaka.? I said "But u paṇḍita told u pa-auk like that due to keeping the unity of Burma monks". When the noble ones disagree with each other, it doesn't mean...

... There is a big detail on this case: Teaching for one's enlightenment. Teaching for keeping Buddhist teaching go on until 5000 years. Buddha and his students make the structure of tipiṭaka, atthakathā, and study system for keeping Buddhist teaching go on until 5000 years. But the way of u-mahāsī...

Pa-Auk, Sujin Boriharnwanaket, Mahasi, etc

that awareness is anatta. It has its own conditions. It does not arise by thinking of it or wanting to have it. Thinking of awareness can be awareness as well, so thinking of awareness can be awareness's condition. In Abhi. Paṭṭhāna, unwholesome awareness can cause wholesome awareness as well. So, ...

Re: The great Abhidhamma Pitaka authenticity debate

Read the suttas, read the abidhama commentary. Does one seem clear, simple, straightforward and obviously divine? Does one seem constructed, manmade, superfluous? If so, there is your answer.

Re: Linguistics Reason: Ananda Memorized Sutta For The Other, But Sariputta Memorized Abhidhamma That Buddha Directly Ta

Sorry but I have not made claims about the contents of the abbhidhamma. I had only expressed disapproval about authenticity claims made over here such as: Sariputta who died before the Buddha memorizing the abbhidhama as a form of secret teaching when we know that Buddha said he had not kept anythi...
