I've seen statements like "When one is in jhana, all defilements are suppressed temporarily." Is there any scriptural source for this?
No.

This may have evolved from Patisambhidamagga:

Re: Buddhists bowing to golden statues...

Buddha never said, "Worship these statues in my image after I pass away." did he? Seems like antropomorhic images of the Buddha were initially forbidden by Vinaya. In Chapter 48 of the Vinaya of the Sarvaastivaadins (3) there is a long passage which deals with the decoration of monasteries. Anaatha...

Re: Could someone please help me out here? This sutta has thrown me into confusion.

I'll just add the explanation by Venerable Bodhi: “And why, bhikkhus, do you call them volitional formations? ‘They construct the conditioned,’ bhikkhus, therefore they are called volitional formations.[112] And what is the conditioned that they construct? They construct conditioned form as form;[11...

Hi DooDoot, Imo, the key here is determining what the suffix " attāya " means :shrug: .

Re: Could someone please explain Venerable Thanissaro's understanding of parinibbana for me in a couple of sentences?

As something for comparison, the traditional Theravada view is: "after the last consciousness of the Arahant, who has abandoned arousing [future aggregates] and so prevented kamma from giving result in a future [existence], there is no further arising of aggregates of existence, and those already a...

Re: Could someone please explain Venerable Thanissaro's understanding of parinibbana for me in a couple of sentences?

Ven. Thanissaro doesn't have any position regarding the fate of Arahant after Nibbana without residue.

However, there's a lot of unsubstantianed hearsay to the contrary.
