A fine example has boundless power

Post by diligence » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:00 am

Hello, bhante! Hello, friends ! I think it is really difficult to read all the Pali Canon. I wonder whether there are a few people who have nearly finished reading the suttapiṭaka, or at least saṃyutta nikāya and aṅguttara nikāya. In another words, I would like to know——has anyone nearly finished reading the suttapiṭaka, or at least saṃyutta nikāya and aṅguttara nikāya? :reading:

I want to find examples and then learn from them and try to emulate them. :anjali:
With the arising of delight, there is the arising of suffering. With the cessation of delight, comes the cessation of suffering.

Mayaṃ sīlaṃ rakkhantā sappurisā bhavissāma.

Were it not for the Vinaya, and for those who continue to keep it alive to this day, there would be no Buddhism.

I would say I have read four Nikaya English translation in access to insight. (at least twice)
I have started reading Bhante Sujato' s translation which is the complete English translation and available for free.

If you participate in the forum and read what is being linked to in topics that interest you it is a good way to study imho.
However one should be very careful taking people's word for things on the forum because people might be themselves confused and confusing others.

"The statements; 'With the remainderless stopping & fading of the six contact-media is it the case that there is anything else?' '.. is it the case that there is not anything else .. is it the case that there both is & is not anything else .. is it the case that there neither is nor is not anything else?' objectify non-objectification. However far the six contact-media go, that is how far objectification goes."
