Now online: Two Out Of Print Documents

Postby Jhana4 » Sun Jul 22, 2012 8:03 pm

A Sri Lankan member of our Buddhist Sutta Study group has gone to the trouble of scanning two out of print essays made by a scholar monk friend of hers. We have put them online for others who might find them useful as well:

The first is on the subject of Buddhism or Pessimism? and the second on The Anatta Doctrine:
Two Out Of Print Documents
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Greetings Jhana4,

Thanks for sharing.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
