MN 117 & MA 189 - Great Forty

Postby Unrul3r » Tue Apr 22, 2014 11:07 pm

Hello Dhamma Wheelers,

Just thought I would share a I made for myself with Mahācattārīsaka Sutta and it's MA parallel overlapped by color. It's based on , which gives more detailed information.

Some differences in MA that I find striking are:
- absence of taint & taintless distinction
- absence of the "spontaneously reborn beings"
- the livelihood section seems to complement the Pali's more synoptical version.
- presence of definitions of sammāñāṇa & sammāvimutti (I only remember seeing something similar in as suvimuttacitto & suvimuttapañño)

Maybe some of you have some insightful comments to offer.

Thanks Unrul3r, that's a very clear way of presenting the differences between the two texts.
