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. :)
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'."
(Snp 3.6)

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
