Re: What do these words actually mean?

just two other thing I believe Pali translating into german is Far easier than Pali into English do you think this is the case for translators who are native speakers of English or German, (Germans having a easier time translating so to speak)? hmm... I really don't know. I am a native speaker of g...

Re: What do these words actually mean?

Hi Acinteyya, Dhammachariya is a title for Dhamma Teacher, I know a couple of people who have the title, and if you do a search can easily be found (and one of my friends is quite close to the top of the results as is a group I use to go to back home 1,2 & 3 on the Yahoo search), but dhammakathiko ...

Re: What do these words actually mean?

I think it's correct according to the Suttas. dhammakathiko means "One who expounds the Law, one who has the gift of preaching" dhammacariyā means "Religious life, piety" deduced from dhammo and cariyā (conduct according to dhamma) (dhammo: and (dhammaṃ)Nature, condition, quality, property, characte...

Re: How to handle doubts (vicikicchā)?

Should I comprise these doubts into contemplation? or suppress? or just further letting go? The third one. Lots of things will come and go. (Tho it's probably worthwhile to ask your teacher.) Or you could write a limerick Vicikicchā A gentleman named Laframboise had a problem with vicikicchā. Every...

Re: How to handle doubts (vicikicchā)?

I think I'm quite sure how to deal with sakkāyaditthi (personality?) and sílabbataparāmāsa (clinging to rules and rites) but there are moments from time to time where I'm in doubt. It sounds like you are talking about sotapanna. more or less... doubts (vicikicchā) disable real practice which shall ...

Maybe it will help to know the differences in types of doubt? If it is kankhā, there is no problem ...
It does! :thanks: I'd rather say it's a form of kankhā instead of vicikicchā in that case.
Thank you very much! That's really helpful.

Re: How to handle doubts (vicikicchā)?

Hello Fede, If you keep evaluating your own 'performance', there is also the problem that you may begin pandering to an undesirable 'Egoic' state... Do you mean if I evaluate my own 'performance', I should do it with wisdom to avoid a possibly undesirable 'Egoic' state? In the way you already mentio...

How to handle doubts (vicikicchā)?

Hi, I meditate (ānāpānasati) almost daily for about 1 year now, since I visited the Muttodaya Forest Monastery in Germany. I think I'm quite sure how do deal with sakkāyaditthi (personality?) and sílabbataparāmāsa (clinging to rules and rites) but there are moments from time to time where I'm in dou...

Re: Do we create karma every second

Greetings, I try not to think too much about kamma and its consequences. I know that there are wholesome and unwholesome consequences with respect to the sila 's or ethical behavior in general and that's enough for me. my nickname "acinteyya" means (roughly): "What should not be thought; inconceivab...

Another "Moin"

Moin , so what can I say... My name is Florian. I'm 23 years old and I live in Neuburg/Germany. I'm able to read and understand english quite well, but my writing experience, especially with respect to these particular buddhism topics, is rather nothing. So I guess the terminology needed for effici...
