Re: What is the mening of Akalika?

So the arising of greed is Nibbana??? :shrug: if you removes greed, anger and delusion Unprovoked Concentration release is realized, which is the highest release. Realized in this very life refers to various concentration releases; In This Very Life “Reverend, they speak of ‘a teaching realizable i...

Re: What is the mening of Akalika?

i voted #1 For reasons; Before Bodhisatta's attainment of Nibbana, here Dhamma to be realized refers to the Arupa States; "I thought: 'It isn't through mere conviction alone that Alara Kalama declares, "I have entered & dwell in this Dhamma, having realized it for myself through direct knowledge."

Re: 7 lives after stream entry

With the ending of three fetters they have at most seven rebirths. So tiṇṇaṃ saṃyojanānaṃ parikkhayā sattakkhattuparamo hoti. They will transmigrate at most seven times among gods and humans and then make an end of suffering. Sattakkhattuparamaṃ deve ca manusse ca sandhāvitvā saṃsaritvā dukkhassant...

Re: Do animals have namarupa?

What is the Abidhamic view of namarupa? i get the feeling Abidhamma is all about analysing the interdependancy between namarupa and consciousness. From what i've so far seen and understood it reconciles various excerpts from the Sutta with more common forumulae. For example these passages; “But, in...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

But now, it appears you seem to be "thinking" your way to imagined enlightenment. Good luck with that. :hello: What i meant is by thinking about the Dhamma being Dhammanupassana is that one contemplates the Dhamma and makes exertion to realize the ultimate meaning in the most general sense as in th...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

It is funny how you don't stand by what you originally assert and Non-Appropriation becomes the Lettin Go. Non-Appropriation & Letting Go are the same things. No these are two very different things and you can not equate the two, first one lets go then there is the state of not-holding. Having let ...

It is funny how you don't stand by what you originally assert and Non-Appropriation becomes the Lettin Go. Sorry but in proper discussion you should quote what you are referring to. Here you go; My impression is the practise itself is non-appropriation. have you relinquished that view of "non-appro...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

have you relinquished that view of "non-appropriation being a practice"? No. Letting go is a practise. Holding (keeping in mind) a view is a practise. But the view itself is not the practise. :geek: It is funny how you don't stand by what you originally assert and Non-Appropriation becomes the Lett...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

You are welcome to adjust ...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

why are you taking excerpts of my posts out of context and putting them together? Are you ok? Since you seem to be saying your posts are like a out of place jigsaw puzzle, yes, i agree. This is necessary because you appear to be taking very lofty Pali terms and using them to describe a "kindergarte...

Re: Satipatthana - non-appropriation, insight, or both?

if you think about it logically you can't even conceive of non-appropriation in regards to the Aggregates without Dhammanupassana ... 1. One hears the Dhamma 2.

I think you missed the point where I in several ways identified a possible outcome of an experiment and observation that conflicts with predictions deduced from your hypothesis. In doing that i successfully falsified your hypothesis.

According to Buddha
Its actually according to a sutta tucked away in the AN and, even then, the sutta is not in English. The Pali needs to be subject to discernment by examination of elements
