Upanisa Sutta - transcendental dependent origination

Postby gavesako » Wed Apr 28, 2010 8:33 am

See http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... el277.html for Bhikkhu Bodhi's text analyzing the Sutta in detail.

I was inspired by the waterfall about 100 m away from Dhammapala monastery, and I made this video with Sutta quotes:

Dhammas flowing over into dhammas

Transcendental Dependent Arising - Upanisa Sutta, the "Discourse on Supporting Conditions".

Then also there is a new video with Bhante G:

Supporting Meditation
Bhante Gunaratana on the Upanisa Sutta (A 11), the holistic approach to supporting meditative development through cultivating virtue.

Thank you Bhante!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Greetings bhante,

Thank you for that - I enjoyed both videos.

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

I haven't read the article, but would I be wrong in saying that the factors from 'knowledge and vision of things as they are' to 'knowledge of destruction of the taints' occur at, more or less, the same moment?
With metta,
Upāsaka Sumana

Here is Buddha Net's version of Bhikkhu Bodhi's work:

This noble eightfold path is the ancient path traveled by all the Buddhas of eons past. Nagara Sutta
