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. If not, there is your answer. Do you really think ānanda/sāriputta/kassapa/anuruddha/upāli were no brain to...

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

it (abhidhamma) was indeed recited at the first council. Are there any sources apart from commentaries which state this? Do you really think ānanda/sāriputta/kassapa/anuruddha/upāli were no brain to ask what they/their students can't understand while they were listening and memorizing sutta from Bu...

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...

After this I will let you see "you can use this explanation in everywhere of tipitaka". Sutta. Saṃ. Ma.

Re: Dependent Origination VS seventeen thought moment?

In a closer analysis of these two, I felt both these concepts address the same. Yes, it is. Whole of abhidhamma is describing the insight meditation's object. But the object of insight meditation is every conditional arising stuffs. So, abhidhamma must describe everything in paṭiccasamuppāda. ie: S...

Re: Need details

Consciousness is present in the 4th jhana. While Abhidhamma has some different ideas to the Pali suttas; Abhidhamma would not be so extreme & discordant to say the 4th jhana has no consciousness. The fact is both sutta and abhidhamma never said "there is no consciousness of 4th-jhāna-attaining peop...

Re: Temperature born matter and plants?

Okay thank you, do the suttas allow for temperature born matter at all though? Or in the suttas is all matter necessarily the of kamma/volitional formations? If not, how did the elders explain this? It is appear in the similitude of Sutta. Aṅ. (1): eka-duka-tikanipātā accāyikāsutta : “tīṇimāni, bhi...

Re: Sakkaya Ditthi is not self-view!!

Note5: Sakkāya is not similar to sakkāya-diṭṭhi in mostly suttas such as sakkāyasutta . Sakkāya is 5 aggregates, which is engaging by diṭṭhi-clinging (diṭṭhi-upādāna). But sakkāya-diṭṭhi is diṭṭhi-clinging, which engaging 5 aggregates. So, mostly english version, which I random checked, translated ...

Re: Sakkaya Ditthi is not self-view!!

The questions are easy, if you study them by the right method. The real practice is uncountable harder. You all guys often say "the question is complex, the answer is not clear, the tipitaka is wrong, the atthakathā is fabulous, etc". But you never said "I never study by the buddhist ancient study ...

Re: Sakkaya Ditthi is not self-view!!

They translated it follow pāli's samāsa. For me clung-to-aggregates means clung which is aggregate. It is the same as clinging aggregate. But if they translate in full term as "aggregates engage in clinging & grasping", it is too long. I understand what you mean, but you will forget it when you can ...

This is confusing ,

Identity view (sakkāyadiṭṭhi).

self view (attānudiṭṭhi).

In English , both are similar .
sakkāyadiṭṭhi and are similar. They are synonym.
