Re: Dukha and Escape from It

Nibbana is complete disenchantment. Until you realize Nibbana, you will suffer. "Theravada" and Nibbana are for those who seek Ultimate Peace (of course Ultimate Peace for everyone and everything - you can't reach it "for yourself")

Re: L. Cousins' "de-quantification" of dhammas

Dear bhante Dhammānando, I am pleased to have you answering my questions here. I don't know much about modern ābhidhammikas, as I have never been deeply interested in Abhidhamma. It seems to me that the idea that dhammas are processes and not momentary quanta of consciousness and space-time is also ...

L. Cousins' "de-quantification" of dhammas

In his writings on Buddhism and Abhidhamma he always presumes that Abhidhamma authors by the instant succession of the "momentary" dhammas meant an almost opposite thing: that there is n...

Audio of recitation of the Vinaya-pitakas's Mahavagga

Hey guyz,

I need audio recordings of the modern traditional recitation of the first part (Mahākhandhaka) of Vinaya's Mahāvagga (in Pāli, of course). Has anyone heard anything about such recitations? I would be happy if someone provided me with links to those recordings / sent me the files.

Re: The Buddha as "one who knows" in Thai tradition

perkele,

ajahn Mun definitely used these phrase and concept, I have read about that.

Mr. Man, thanks, you helped me a ...

As far as I know, "forest tradition" monks use this word as a synonym for the Buddha and t...
