Re: In search of articles

I wonder in English language how many monks are teaching against abhidhamma/Mahayana approach? It seems that is only Dhammavuddho bhikkhu, may be Sujato bhikkhu as well... If you know can you mention.them here and give llinks on their articles? https://www.buddhismuskunde.uni-hamburg.de/en/personen...

B. Analayo claims you can not do jhāna while in satipatthāna

https://notesonthedhamma.blogspot.com/2019/03/b-analayo-claims-you-can-not-do-jhana.html excerpt: MN 125 compstudy vol.2 2011 although satipatthāna can serve as a foundation for the development of the jhānas, (174) in itself it does not constitute a form of jhāna practice. In MN 125, B.Analayo trie...

Re: EBMS, and Bhikkhu Anālayo's mistranslation of V&V

Do you even bother to read and understand a person's position before opening your mouth? I've explained my position clearly in the link above. From the quotes you provided, it's clear you didn't read what I wrote, and you don't understand the difference between what Ajahn Brahm and the other two tea...

Re: Stopping thoughts before they occur and periods of non-thinking

(comment on MN 20) This is what confuses me. Most Buddhist scholars say when it comes to thoughts, whether good or evil, we need to let go, suppression is not the way. But here it seems that the Buddha is encouraging suppression of some kind. He doesn't say let go, be aware, etc. He clearly says bea...

Re: V&V, Analayo's misunderstanding of noble silence, and vitakka

How the buddha defines noble silence as second jhana (not first jhana) should make it clear why vism. redefinition of V&V as 'directed and sustained attention' doesn't work. Noble silence has another meaning in another context beside the usual 2nd jhana context. Ven. Bodhi's note citing the Comy's ...

Re: V&V, Analayo's misunderstanding of noble silence, and vitakka

I tried several times to understand your posts on this forum and in the blog. I have the feeling I'm reading a draft where somebody writes his thoughts from time to time: a sentence now, a sentence next week, few words next month. There is no integrity, no clear presentation of what is your point a...

V&V, Analayo's misunderstanding of noble silence, and vitakka

V&V💭: vitakka & vicāra Vitakka 💭 = directed thought. Vicāra 🕵️ = the evaluation of that very same directed thought, not a separate train of thought. V&V isn't a wild excursion of jumping from one random thought to another random, disconnected thought. Vicāra explores, inspects, discriminates, evalua...

Bhikkhu Anālayo's mistranslation of V&V
How does B.A. translated V&V?
from pali, chinese, sanskrit, he has some slightly different versions. but basically the idea is more of the vism. redefinition of V&V.
