Re: Reading tipps for a beginner - Pali canon!

And I think this is the translation of Bhikkhu Bodhi's "In the Buddha's words" in german :

Re: Strange Sensation

I have the same sensation, but only with my fingers when I don't move at all (it happens only sometimes). It's pretty unpleasant, and I really wouldn't like to have it happening with my whole body ! But I can't help you, I've never figured out what it is, and I just live with it (wich would of cours...

Re: A major discover about "ancient buddhism"

I agree on this point : it's a lot of text for not so much actual informations.

Re: A major discover about "ancient buddhism"

But this early Canon can be clearly distinguished from later Abhidhamma and Mahayana developments which are built upon this foundation and could not exist without it. I am afraid that it's going to be used by some people in order to put down serious study of the early Buddhist teachings in favour o...

A major discover about "ancient buddhism"

A new canon has recently been discovered, and it's the oldest one we know (so far). The conclusions about this discover might not be what we would have expected. http://www.tricycle.com/feature/whose-buddhism-truest Whose Buddhism is Truest? No one’s—and everyone’s, it turns out.

Re: Download DN, MN and SN for free!

But I'm not advocating that people should download it anyway. (...) What I'm advocating is that the translators should also make it avaialable on the internet for free, and that they don't have the right to do otherwise. I think I just misunderstood you before ! I'm a lot more willing to accept wha...

Re: Download DN, MN and SN for free!

This conversation is diferent from the ilegal downloads one, because it can be reasonably assumed that the Buddha would not aprove to people selling translations of his teachings in the era of the internet. I don't really understand why... I mean, it's not because someone did something wrong that i...

Re: Download DN, MN and SN for free!

People who go regularly on a monastery to eat there are expected to bring some food times to times. But if they don't, nobody will go to their home and ransack their fridge, just because they were supposed to give (as it was taught by the Buddha, not because of some kind of law). Maybe all tipitaka ...

Re: Download DN, MN and SN for free!

Hello Dmytro. The question is: would the Buddha allow that his teachings' translations be selled (in the age of the internet)? Thanissaro Bhikkhu doesn't, why would the Buddha? Be well. I don't think that's the right question : even if he criticised people who sell dhamma, that doesn't mean he woul...

Re: "Don't trust your thoughts" -- in Pali canon?

Not totally similar but :
So in this case, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability (...)

Re: Concerning Kearney's "Development of Insight"

So … rather than so easily discussing your misunderstanding/misrepresentation of his article and point of view, you’d rather continue with this disparaging thread in a Dhamma-Free-For-All forum. Actually I find it to be usefull. Indeed, I've also learned that nibbana is a kind of total cessation (b...
