vana (forest; craving)

Yo nibbanatho vanādhimutto, vanamutto vanameva dhāvati;
Taṃ puggalametha passatha, mutto bandhanameva dhāvati.

Having left the forest of desire (i.e., the life of a householder), he takes to the forest of the practice (i.e., the life of a bhikkhu); but when he is free from the forest of desire he rushes back to that very forest.
Come, look at that man who having become free rushes back into that very bondage.
(Dhp 344)

Hey! Wait a minute, I see people writing Pali in the [English] word association game. This is a reminder that we have a Pali word association game here too! :tongue:

puggalavada (an early 'personalist' school of Buddhism)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pudgalavada

The Pudgalavāda or "Personalist" school of Buddhism broke off from the orthodox Sthaviravāda (elders) school around 280 BCE. The Sthaviravādins interpreted the doctrine of anatta to mean that, since there is no true "self", all that we think of as a self (i.e., the subject of sentences, the being that transmigrates) is merely the aggregated skandhas. The Pudgalavādins asserted that, while there is no ātman, there is a pudgala or "person", which is neither the same as nor different from the skandhas. The "person" was their method of accounting for karma, rebirth, and nirvana. Other schools held that the "person" exists only as a label, a nominal reality.

The Pudgalavadins were strongly criticized by the Theravadins (a record of a Theravadin attack on the pudgala is found in the Kathavatthu), Sarvastivadins, and Madhyamakas. Peter Harvey agrees with criticisms levelled against the Pudgalavadins by Moggaliputta-Tissa and Vasubandhu, and finds that there is no support in the suttas for their "person"-concept.[1]

They were labeled heretical, and the sect eventually died out.


The Pudgalavādin view sounds similar to the views of some today and perhaps a few teachers too (but not very many).

Pali word association game

Postby David2 » Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:09 pm

Hi all,

this thread is for practising Pali, in the same way the (English) word association game in the other thread works.
see

cooran wrote:It is simple ... It starts with one word, and someone posts a word that it is associated with, and then the next person posts a word associated with the second word and so on and on ....


So the idea is to post Pali words. Please mention an English translation in brackets, so it will be easy to learn new words.

So let's start
