Re: A collection of Early Buddhist material not found in the Pali Nikayas and Chinese Agamas

There is no exact way to date them other than radiocarbon dating for the manuscripts themselves. But this does not ...

A collection of Early Buddhist material not found in the Pali Nikayas and Chinese Agamas

Hi everyone, its been awhile since I've posted on this site. :anjali: I'm cross-posting a resource I shared on suttacentral.

Re: New book by Y. Karunadasa

Those are a lot of heavy hitters in Buddhist studies it seems, its making me want to buy it myself. Also, not sure if it is a new book, or a new edition or printing. It seems like the book has been around for awhile https://www.buddhistdoor.net/features/early-buddhist-teachings-the-middle-position-i...

Re: Does Theravada have a practice similar to Tonglen in Mhayana?

Loving kindness meditation is similar, in that there is the same radiation of goodness out to all beings. However, there is no instruction to take in the bad.

Re: The Idea of the Historical Buddha

Much ado about nothing He's right that most claims about the Buddha are mythical and that there is no solid historical evidence for the historical figure, but none of this is new, as his quoting of Lamotte shows Ultimately, the Dhamma is the Dhamma, whether or not the academy can establish historici...

Re: Does illegal downloading violate the 2nd precept?

Doesn't this give too much moral authority to the state over and above the Buddha's Dhamma? Let's say that I lived in a totalitarian state whose laws made it clear that the state owns all intellectual property, including the words of the Buddha (not a far fetched premise, given several 20th century...
