Even taking metta.lk translation into account and combine with Ven. T and Woodward's versions, at best, the "hellish misery, disturbing, and very troublesome" only added the mental suffering dimension to what's laid out in Ven T and Woodward versions. It says nothing about attaining Nibbana in the same lifetime which one committed the grave crimes as you've claimed. Who's playing kindergartens here then? :thinking:

No, it said about "incurable", and at the very best, ""hellish misery, disturbing, and very troublesome", not :quote: "attaining Nibbana in the same life time"...

I'm ordering the AN translation by Ven. Bodhi, hopefully it'll come soon. Whether it's rendered as "incurable" or "cannot be pardoned", either one indicates the impossibility of Nibbana in the same life time that one comitted the Grave crimes. It doesn't mean s/he's condemned forever though..

It's not my job to tell you what and what not to believe. I simply pointed out all the sources and analysis from respected teachers that don't agree with your viewpoint. Thanks, looking forward to see the Great Book..
