Re: Are there Dhammayut groups without 'eternal citta' belief

Buddh ism is not annihilation ism folks Right. And it's also not eternalism. What's your point? the middle it is in other words, somewhat both, somewhat neither I don't disagree. The op is referring to ajahn Maha boowas claim that the citta is internal though. Which doesn't seem in the middle to me.

Re: Are there Dhammayut groups without 'eternal citta' belief

Ajahn khemasanto was ordained in that tradition, and was a student of ajahn Maha boowa, and knows his theory on citta is ridiculous.

Re: A section for non-eternalist Buddhism?

Could you give some examples? I don't recall seeing any eternalist posts recently.

Re: DN31 Advise to Sigalaka

Isn't there a sutta that says a lot person would have to ordain if them became enlightened, otherwise they couldn't survive?

Re: Sujin Boriharnwanaket: quotes

I listened. I thought it was interesting. I got the feeling that sujin thinks his view is the right view and bhikkhu bodhi doesn't get it. I could be wrong though, I don't know the circumstances. Maybe they were speaking in front of the crowd and he was laying it all out for the sake of teaching th...

Re: THERE'S NO SELF: a sutta says

"assuming self where there is no self", is not saying there is no self. It means just what it says, assuming one in a place where there isn't, ie the aggregates. I don't disagree that there isn't a self, but I wouldn't use that sutta as my reference if I were going around trying to prove it to others.

Re: Holocaust denial, revisionism or agnosticism and monastic duties

My topic here is very sincere; particularly in a world where ' political correctness ' is now becoming actual law in the increasingly totalitarian West. I can only speak for the US, not the entire West, but the whole idea of the extreme left taking over, killing free speech, and everything some for...

Re: Holocaust denial, revisionism or agnosticism and monastic duties

I don't really understand what you're asking. The Holocaust isn't a belief, it's a historical event.

Re: 7 lives after stream entry

If you agree that it at least says "at 7 maximum", whatever 7 may be, how could it be referring to fetters, if all 10 must be broken for Nibbana? Because the sutta already says 3 fetters have been broken. The sutta refers to the "breakthrough" of the stream-enterer, which is 3 fetters. I don't thin...

Re: 7 lives after stream entry

"at most 7 lives" I have made my posts. The sutta says "seven times maximum". The sutta does not include the word "lives". Any Pali reader can confirm this. Venerable Dhammanando comments on it here . Best wishes. :) If you agree that it at least says "at 7 maximum", whatever 7 may be, how could it...
