Re: The great honourable Mor

Good story. The only thing that intrigues me is: How could the older sister who is supposedly too arrogant to accept help from her younger sister become a nun? Well in ancient China, even up till now majority of the people there have thoughts of to be nun, when there's no choice for a living. They ...

Re: Arahants

I must point out that the Buddha was also an Arahant. Pacceka Buddha is also an Arahant. A disciple can also be an Arahant.
The above line is by Ven. Dr. W. Rahula.

What does it meant? Isn't Arahant is one who reached Nibbana, enlightened and only through the help of the Buddha's doctrine?
