Interested in personal blogs (and participation) of monks, nuns, Buddhist experts

One of the forums I'm on, reddit's 'r/Buddhism', due to their 'self promotion' forum rules, filters out very interesting material that people actually would be interested in.

I created a new forum to address this problem:

Re: Zen and the art of choicefully being mindful of something important.

Moderators, why did you move my OP into the pali forum? I had it under the broader 'general theravada discussion' forum intentionally. Could you move it back there please? The article covers much more than just the 'pali vocabulary' that I mentioned. It also discusses the holistic and integrated rol...

Re: Zen and the art of choicefully being mindful of something important.

The practice of 'choiceless awareness' is not a problem in itself, but it is definitely not 'sati' as the Buddha defined it, with very critical attributes that require choice, conscious awareness, and lucid discerning, all requiring a faculty of memory of Dharma and CHOOSING which relevant dharma to...

Re: difference between mudita (virtuous joy) pīti (rapture), and late Theravada mudita as brahmavihara

'pa' is just an amplifier prefix. Does pa-jānāti really have an appreciably different meaning than jānāti? Or in this important passage from SN 46.3 (which is again, a frequent and important 7sb sequence that I'm using as evidence) (0. 👂 Bhikkhūnaṃ dhammaṃ sutvā) 0. 👂 listen to Dhamma [teaching] fro...

Re: difference between mudita (virtuous joy) pīti (rapture), and late Theravada mudita as brahmavihara

Thanks for that detailed explanation Bhante! But note that this causal sequence pattern happens like 50 times in the suttas (the 7sb sequence) (not exact number, DN alone also has that happening at least 10 times that don't come up in searches because of large peyaala) pā-mojjaṃ jāyati, virtuous-mir...
