Re: 7 lives after stream entry

According to Buddha, there are three types of sotapannas classifiable according to their possible rebirths: (1) "If a one, after the disappearance of the 3 fetters (personality-belief, skeptical doubt, attachment to rules and rituals;(samyojana), has entered the stream (to Nibbāna), this one is no m...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

well if you think you can report my posts maybe mods will agree with you. Its irrelevant. The word "satta" in SN 23.2 does not mean "living creature" because the word itself is used for "clinging". Thanissaro has even footnoted this in his translation. prove it then i don't care, as i said i am dis...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

A being is synonymous with a person and a being is essentially a notion of the Aggregates In the sutta quoted, the word "satta" literally means "clinging". Any desire, passion, delight, or craving for form, Radha: when one is caught up there, tied up there, one is said to be 'a being.' “Rūpe kho, r...

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

as i understood your question it looks like you are asking whether or not Kaya/Vedana/Cittanupassana are "hands-on" practices to condition non-appropriation. In that case i think they can be said to be such in the sense that these are wholesome themes being maintained and investigated which develops...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

The World is perceived and conceived of by the Aggregates[1]. This can also be easily shown to be the case by Sutta method thus; Q: What is "a being" ? A: "Any desire, passion, delight, or craving for form, Radha: when one is caught up[1] there, tied up[2] there, one is said to be 'a being.'[3] "An...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

Greetings Rightviewftw, Have you heard of dependent origination of phenomena? Yes, and it is through that process that I would contend that salayatana itself is an ignorant conception of an "eye in the world", but I shan't pursue that any further here, since it's a view probably at odds with the cl...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

Let me explain a couple things. On Dhammawheel.com i have to tolerate you but it does not make you my peer or interlocutor, i only engage you occasionally because you are provoking me. I have no actual interest in discussion of your misunderstandings beyond the occasional refutation of your views. ...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

Friend. The eye does not "conceive" ("mānī"' "mana"; "maññati") . Through the eye in the world you perceive the world and conceive the world. Cakkhunā kho, āvuso, lokasmiṃ lokasaññī hoti lokamānī.

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

Greetings rightviewftw, Those two statements do not appear contradictory. The eye itself does not conceive etc., but through the eye in the world , once conceives etc. Metta, Paul. :) The point is not the eye perceives the world but that the world is not conceived and perceived by one aggregate nam...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

why don't you read this literally? “Sir, they speak of this thing called ‘the world’. How is the world defined?” “Ānanda, that which wears out is called the world in the training of the noble one. And what wears out? The eye wears out. Sights … eye consciousness … eye contact wears out. The painful...

Re: Who put's down the burden ?

you are contradicting yourself; Friend. I think literally reading sutta is best (rather than than creating papanca /proliferation from suttas). The sutta literally says: Through the Eye in the world you perceive the world and conceive the world - sn35.116 why don't you read this literally? it is as ...

I say the world is conceived by only one aggregate, namely, sankhara aggregate. Through the Eye in the world you perceive the world and conceive the world - sn35.116 And what is Eye? That eye which, deriving from the four great essentials, is sensitive surface. This is called eye element. -Vibhaṅga...
