Re: Pali terms: nivāsā, nivesa, niveseti, āvāsā, etc

Dear DooDoot, I would like to start a discussion about the Pali words: nivāsā, nivesa, niveseti, āvāsā, etc, and particularly how the different translations are derived, such as 'abodes', 'adherence', 'settle', lives', etc, (because this I do not understand). Among these, nivāsā and āvāsā have the s...

Re: Is There Clear Delineation Of What Is/Not "Early Buddhism"?

"Sanskrit, - a language created centuries after Buddha's lifetime" Prove it! I can prove that Sanskrit wasn't used until first century B.C., - as far as scientific method goes. As Richard Salomon writes, "Sanskrit began to come into epigraphic use only in the first century B.C."...

Re: Is There Clear Delineation Of What Is/Not "Early Buddhism"?

Hi Vincent, Neither in SN 12.15, as you put it, nor in any other (non-sectarian) Suttas, did The Buddha "clearly rejected" (as you put it,) a "Self". The proof is not in the fact that the "धर्मन् dharmán" (see above,) that is paṭiccasamupāda, is void of atta (sabbe dham...

Niddesa is also untranslated.

P.S. It turned out that Niddesa is translated by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, but not yet published.

Re: Theravada is a later sect?

Hi Mike, When Dhamma was introduced to Sri Lanka it is not completely clear that it was yet labelled "Theravada". Does it matter? Arahants at the First Council clearly didn't use such kind of label, expounding "Dhamma-Vinaya". Quite apart from that, it seems clear that at a much ...

Yes, these Yoga Sutras. However, Wikipedia isn't to be trusted about the dates of such texts, since there's a strong Indian religious lobby behind their dating to time immemorial.

Re: Theravada is a later sect?

We shouldn't make terms after every council. But we should do so after councils which produce schisms, because we need to be able to accurately say who we are talking about. In my opionion, names shouldn't be invented, - they should be based on historical sources. Would you please provide a single ...

Re: Theravada is a later sect?

What is wrong with using the technical term Sthaviravada to unambiguously refer to the group at the time of the second council? It's not just a technical term, - it's a Buddhological invention that skews the whole view of history, as you demonstrate. But did the Theravadins at the time of the secon...

Re: Theravada is a later sect?

Now there is also a good argument that Sthaviravada is a back formation by A.K. Warder and that they were not a school or sect as such, but rather a general tendency among a loose grouping of like minded people. Sthaviravada as an original early school is not just a back formation, it is a figment ...
