Buddhist Flowchart Diagram for Engineers

Postby suriyopama » Wed Aug 14, 2013 6:46 am

Dear friends,

As an engineer, I feel better having technical procedures on my workplace rather than a shrine, so I have prepared this flowchart.

It requires a good understanding of the meaning of AND/OR logic gates ;)

Please, correct me if there is something not correct, or if you have any suggestions.

That’s correct.

Looking at that chart, it is scary to see how easy it is to pass through the lower gate, and not-so-easy to reach the higher gate. It is encouraging me to take the practice more seriously!


I have made a revision, including some names in Pali, and the 7 Factors of Enlightenment

Thank you very much for all the comments.

Regarding "grasping", I have just found that the word in Pali is “upadana”. Literally “fuel” and translated as "clinging", "attachment" or "grasping". I have to review the nuances of those terms in a dictionary, because English is not my first language. Thanissaro uses clinging, though.

I used the word “stress” because it sounds more technical (everything is subject to stress and entropy), although it may not capture all the nuances of the Pali term "dukkha".

I added more Pali to help myself memorize it, but it may not be a good idea in order to make it appealing to engineers, as mal4mac indicates.

New revision added,


And here is the original file made with Microsoft Visio 2003, so anyone can personalize it.


I have removed the word “faith” because it could be misunderstood with "religious believe" by some skeptical mind. It is not necessary to mention, since all engineers already have faith on well exposed flow charts and technical methodologies that lead to a good end ;)
