Re: A comprehensive manual of abhidhamma by Bhikkhu Bodhi online

Hmm, OK, I see Amazon has it at 34, 96 and 151 dollars... :o

I suggest the print-and-bind approach...

Re: How are the views of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu regarded?

The "this arises..." stuff is at the end of Paragraph 7 of the Nanamoli/Bodhi translation (Page 655). The rest of the paragraph seems to have been translated differently. The quote seems to be from here: http://awake.kiev.ua/dhamma/tipitaka/2Sutta-Pitaka/2Majjhima-Nikaya/Majjhima2/079-culasakuludayi...

Re: Rupa

Thanks Mike, very interesting. I'm sorry, what's the usual incense thing in Thailand? Sorry, I mean just lighting some small sticks of incense. Usually you'll get a package of a candle, three sticks of incense and a lotus. As opposed to China where you get truly humongous sticks of incense... :tong...

You mean to print it out? I downloaded, printed, and spiral bound it (which isn't free of course, but less than $30 I think).

Re: A comprehensive manual of abhidhamma by Bhikkhu Bodhi online

Thanks pt1! I hope it's okay to put this link here, I'd like to add another. Ben gave me this link a long time ago and I love it. Abhidhamma in Daily Life I have found it useful to read Nina's book, Abhidhamma In Daily Life, in parallel with A Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma. There is a newer ve...

Re: Rupa

Do Theravada practitioners make offerings with shrines? I'm sure you don't do water offerings and such, but do you offer candles or incense? "Traditional" Theravadins, such as the Thai people here offer all kinds of things. Food, and so on... Sometimes I'll add some of the food I brought to the tra...

Re: Interdependence

And perhaps it's what you get in deep meditation or the way a Buddha might see the world with his divine eye? And that is not necessarily fool-proof. Ajahn Thanissaro discusses this in his introduction to MN 1. http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/mn/mn.001.than.html" onclick="window.open(this.h...

Re: What does Buddhadasa say about emptiness?

Yes, that's from the book. As it says in the introductory materail to the book, voidness was his particular "thing" and he was discouraged from teaching it to lay people. The book is certainly worth reading.

Re: How are the views of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu regarded?

OK, I went and looked at the Visuddhimagga myself. Page 669 of the Nanamoli translation: XVII 287 The past, the present and the future are it's three times. Of these, it should be understood that, according to what is given as such in the texts, the two factors ignorance and formations belong to the...

Re: How are the views of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu regarded?

Hmm, I still don't get it. My understanding was that for an Arahant there is nothing to condition the next rebirth. That's what the quote I gave above seemed to be saying. On the other hand, I think that saying that all aspects of the model need to be over three lives is probably an overinterpretati...

Hi Zerotime, Yes that's the part of "Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree" I was thinking of: ...
