Thank you very much, Chris! :bow:

I'm a very slow reader, so it will take several years till I've read all the great articles and books you are posting on Dhamma Wheel :D

Could we pin this thread possibly mods? Thank you.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Dear Cooran & friends,

Anumodana for your Abhidhamma resources list! I mirrored it onto the German language http://www.dhamma-vinaya.de forum.

Here in Freising we now got a growing number of Abhidhamma students. Ven. Agganyani (http://www.abhidhamma.de) teaches an Introduction to Abhidhamma once a month to the locals.

These days we bhikkhus are actually reciting the Mahapatthana during the water festival - a new addendum to the Bavarian festival calendar and a wholesome counterpart to the beer festival in autumn. :toast:


Best wishes,

Theravada Emptiness: The Abhidhammic theory of Ajaan Sujin Boriharnwanaket– Matthew Kosuta (2007)

Ajaan Sujin, a prominent Thai lay teacher of Theravada Buddhism, interprets abhidhammic theory in a manner that, in my view, approaches the teachings of Emptiness as presented in the Prajñā-paramitā-sūtras and in the Madhyamaka-kārikā. This paper presents an overview of Ajaan Sujin’s teachings and compares them with Emptiness as expressed in the Diamond Sūtra, the Heart Sūtra, and the Madhyamaka-kārikā, as well as from a few well-known secondary sources. Core distinctions between the two theories do remain, primarily that for Ajaan Sujin dhammas do have characteristics and nibbāna is distinct from samsāra; thus I have termed Ajaan Sujin’s teachings ‘Theravada Emptiness’. While it may seem that these distinctions are too great to overcome in bridging the gap between abhidhammic theory and Emptiness, a direct comparison between the wording of certain sections and the overall correspondence of vocabulary, practice, and other conceptions, serves to narrow the divide created by these distinctions.
Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another. – Townes Van Zandt ‘Lungs’

Not that I am aware of.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
