Sujin Boriharnwanaket discussion...

Postby Beautiful Breath » Tue May 07, 2013 3:04 pm

I have started this thread as I and others would like to look more at what Sujin Boriharnwanaket teaches. There seems to be some contraversy about her take on actual formal practice and its efficacy so that might be a start.

As I have said, I am relatively new to Pali and don't understand a half of what I do in Sanskrit so please, if this thread does take off, maybe you could bear this in mind and offer a little explanation for those terms in Pali that you use...?

It would be good to see this happen but I am happy either way :anjali:

That's part of what I meant about eerie. Answers that don't address the point.

I'm sure we've had the ball of string discussion here somewhere...

Hi Geoff,

Have you read the article? Kosuta does seem to acknowledge the differences that you mention.

Thanks for the clarification, Geoff. I don't have enough background to assess the Mahayana comparisons.

I struggled with much of what (I understood) Sujin Boriharnwanaket to be saying. Though I have to say I started this thread in order to understand her more as I am natuarally suspicious of my conclusions.

With regards tpo Nargajuna et al... I am afraid I have yet to come across a viable refutation of the Prasangika view. If there is one I would be most interested!

In the interim and back to the original post, could someone sum up the main differences between Sujin Boriharnwanakets' take on 'reality' and its major difference with the Madhyamika Prasangika. I am not sufficiently well versed in Pali to pick this out as yet so a resume would be appreciated!

Thanks,

BB...

Yep clear as a bell...

But the mādhyamikas have 'proved' their case....haven't they? I see nothing anywhere that contradicts or refutes them. If there is, let me know - would help with my Theravadain/Mādhyamikas Nerosis!

So would it be fair to say mādhyamika can sit comfortabley in a Theravadin context?
