Re: Foundations of Human Life - A road to Nirvana for the West

Perfectly awakened Buddhas do not need spellcheck.

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Insulting me in Chinese isn't exactly a production of even a single sermon of the Buddha's that directly teaches about the alleged integral concept of "san". Can you do that instead of the above nonsense? I did not insult or state anything that is derogatory, I merely state the fact. With your deep...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

Can you find a nice handy quote of the Buddha saying that there is such a word as "san" that means this? Can you find any example of the Buddha teaching like this? Maybe you should quote an instance of the Buddha himself directly explaining the meaning of this alleged term "san", since it is allege...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

I was actually looking for buddhavacana from you wherein the Buddha directly comments on the meaning of the words he is talking about in a way that's congruent to your exegeses. I would particularly like one of the Buddha explaining "san", since you think it's so fundamental to the Dhamma. If you c...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

" san " means the good and bad things we acquire. We need to take in the good things ( kusalassa upasampadā ) and discard the bad things ( Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ ) to progress on the path. (from Dhammapada verse 183) Can you find a nice handy quote of the Buddha saying that there is such a word as "...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

The issue is that there is no such thing as a "san" word, so no one can do this but you and others in your sect, who invents these meanings. " san " means the good and bad things we acquire. We need to take in the good things ( kusalassa upasampadā ) and discard the bad things ( Sabbapāpassa akaraṇ...

Re: The teachings of Ven. Waharaka Abhayaratanalankara Thero

OK. So, explain the meanings of all those “san” words with your meaning for “sam”. How on earth do you intend to do this? Neither me nor Venerable Dhammanando has given you a definition of saṁ that is in any way either of "ours." Oh. I see. This was supposed to be some kind of challenge. The issue ...

I have explained this in detail. " What is “San”? Meaning of Sansāra (or Samsāra) ", Jan 09, 2019 Yes, I saw it the first time around. But what was pseudo-philological silliness when posted in January doesn't become something different when it's re-posted in February. You did not provide any eviden...

Re: Muscular Christianity

I think there should be a Muscular Buddhist movement to counter all of the hippy, new age, gender-bender crap that has crept into burgeoning Western Buddhism. Out of curiousity how many transvestites attend the temple you frequent? I can't say I've seen a single one at any of the Theravāda or Mahāy...

Let us resolve one issue at a time. No, no, no, no, no! as the blessed Margaret Thatcher would say. I answered your question, now it's your turn to answer mine. What kind of language do you imagine Pali to be with regard to word-formation? If your first principles are all wrong, then anything deriv...
