Re: Four jhanas contradictions in suttas

Hi Khemindas. I think it is best to include links for quotes. Yesterday, I went searching for SN 53.34 Nadi Sutta and could not find it. As for AN 6.60,I found it difficult to work out which monk was speaking. However, my impression is Venerable Citta Hatthisāriputta disrobed because he found fault...

The true Dhamma is embodied in the discourses of the Buddha found in the earliest 4 Nikayas: are generally accepted by all schools of Buddhism to be the original Teachings of the Buddha, unlike other books (e.g. Mahayana Sutras, Abhidhamma, etc.) which are controversial because they contain some con...

Does Buddha attained arupa-jhanas without Rupa?

From what I gathered at Biography of Buddha, he first practiced arupa-jhanas under guidance of Alara Kalama and Udaka Ramaputta, and later started self-mortification, and later he recollected his practice in childhood and attained all four rupa-jhanas and later attained Nibbana. So if Arupa-jhanas a...
