Update to Classical Theravada guidelines

Postby retrofuturist » Mon Feb 09, 2009 5:26 am

Greetings everyone,

Please note that the guidelines to the Classical Theravada fora have been updated as follows.

Classical Theravada forum and Abhidhamma guidelines
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=373

The Abhidhamma and Classical Theravada sub-forums are specialized venues for the discussion of the Abhidhamma and the classical Mahavihara understanding of the Dhamma. Within these forums the Pali Tipitaka and its commentaries are for discussion purposes treated as authoritative. These forums are for the benefit of those members who wish to develop a deeper understanding of these texts and are not for the challenging of the Abhidhamma and/or Theravada commentarial literature.

Posts should also include support from a reference or a citation (Tipitaka, commentarial, or from a later work from an author representative of the Classical point-of-view).

Posts that contain personal opinions and conjecture, points of view arrived at from meditative experiences, conversations with devas, blind faith in the supreme veracity of one's own teacher's point of view etc. are all regarded as off-topic, and as such, will be subject to moderator review and/or removal.


If the intent or practical workings of these guidelines seems in any way unclear to you, please let us know and we will attempt to clarify the situation and if required, amend the guidelines accordingly.

Thanks for reading.

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
