Re: What is the least I should know and practice to realise Nibbana?

I do not think we have enough time in this life to learn about what Buddha taught for about forty years. Even to read and understand Sutta pitaka and commentaries take such a long time. What is the least I should know and practice to realise Nibbana? N8P... But particular attention should be made o...

Re: Jhana VS Samadhi?

Jhana VS Samadhi? In the following video, Ven. Vijithananda argues that Jhana and Samadhi are two different things. Jhana is attained by mental development by keeping the mind object for meditation. Samadhi is attained by keeping present moment objects of the body. Samadhi can be attained only by S...

Re: how to develop patience? methods in Sutta?

Patience is being at peace with the inpleasant. And it's not a easy practice. Even Lord Buddha said that the patience is the foremost of ascetic pactices... It is indeed true but i think it can be fully practised only if we give up all desire what u think? Patience is the last practice to transcend...

Re: The thing about Mahayana

Untill there is N8P and 4NT there is Dhamma. When i was young i used to be a holy-war warrior agains Mahayana and all deviations from Pali Canon, and it was a source of big suffering for me and others... We are all brothers and sisters in this Dhamma. We shouldn't watch what others do, we should bet...

Re: What is element ?

I don't know, iam not a scholar ^^ Just suggest my point of view ;) As they say in artistic sphere : "perfection is while there is nothing more to suppress" in other words "perfection is simplicity". So why, instead of saying complicate things like "element is a basic quality of mind", we just don't...

Re: What is element ?

Many Great Masters say ... an element is a basic quality of mind ? Which great masters? :shrug: If 'elements' were qualities of mind then there would be millions of different subjective mind produced elements. I add some precisions into the post that can answer your question (about just basic quali...

Re: Which army of Mara are you fighting right now?

Good pool Sarath :) I voted for craving (as cause of dukkha), sensual pleasures and discontent. I'am quite surprised that nobody voted for sensual pleasure... It seems like peoples are not even aware of their dukkha for sensuality... I think that this absense of votes for 'sensual sphere' mean that ...

Re: Moha, lobha & dosa and work

Since becoming a Buddhist, I see anicca, dukkha, anatta in all aspects of daily life & I see the futility in most activities which I used to take such pleasure in, such as yearning for the latest gadgets or toys, games, shows, shopping, eating out, etc., things which I don't partake of much anymore...
