Theravada Meditation Section - trial

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Sep 30, 2010 5:13 am

Greetings,

We're presently trialling some ideas in the Theravada Meditation section in attempt to better cater to the diverse meditative interests of people within the broader Theravada tradition.

Things may shift around a bit... things might be renamed, rearranged and so on as we try to find a good balance that produces good outcomes.

So please bear with us as we trial these new structures and feel free to provide any feedback in this topic here so that we can incorporate your thoughts into the decision making process.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Suttanta method shoud be above all.
Bhikkhu Hiriko - Ñāṇasuci

The experts do not say that one is a sage in this world because of view, or learning, or knowledge, Nanda.
I call them sages who wander without association, without affliction, without desire.

The Buddha, Sn.V.8.2 (1078)

Greetings bhante,

... and now there's a forum specifically for those who believe that to be the case, where they shant be hounded by those who think otherwise.

Likewise, those who favour other approaches which are recognised within the broader Theravada tradition also have specific forums such that they need not feel hounded by those who favour the Suttanta method.

Let's see how it goes.

Where should we discuss Patisambhidamagga? :)

It is in suttapitaka, but one may say that it belongs to the commentarial tradition.

Good question - it would be the first time I think anyone has explicitly wanted to discuss the Patisambhidamagga!

I'm sure it could sit happily in either, or even simply in the General meditation forum. Perhaps whoever was starting the topic might consider first the context in which they wanted to discuss aspects of the Patisambhidamagga.
