Re: Is nibbāna dependently originated at the sense base?

And what, bhikkhus, are the six sense bases? The eye base, the ear base, the nose base, the tongue base, the body base, the mind base. These are called the six sense bases. And what, bhikkhus, is consciousness? There are these six classes of consciousness: eye-consciousness, ear-consciousness, nose...

Re: Let's brainstorm ways to benefit others during this covid crisis

Best way to benefit others is to understand the virus is not deadly to 99% of people therefore: (i) reduce fear ; (ii) identify vulnerable people; and (iii) be aware lockdowns greatly harm the society, the less wealthy & those needing medical care for other conditions. The WHO announced only recentl...

Re: What is the difference between five aggregate and Nama-rupa?

However, I found that paccaya also means cause. Continuing to talk around in unsubstantiated circles. A link was already provided but ignored. Vinnana can be cause of namarupa, if we understand namarupa as explained.... Appeared to not even understand what namarupa is so how can explain it. Are you...

Re: What is the difference between five aggregate and Nama-rupa?

I'm still talking about namarupa and vinnana. Consciousness does not "cause" the physical body (rupa) to be created from the four elements. All that consciousness does is allow the mind-body (nama-rupa) to be known or experienced; therefore consciousness is a "paccaya" for nama-rupa but not a "hetu...

Re: Let's discuss what exactly is "name and form" in DO

The possibility that Nama-Rupa being: Subject & Object Knower & Known Quite embarrassing to read the many so-called Buddhists, including the Western disciples of Ajahn Chah, stuck in Hinduism. It appears there is no "subject" arising in D.O. until attachment & becoming. And what, bhikkhus, is cling...

Wake me up It appears very difficult to wake up one that underlines the wrong words. :zzz: "Herein, bhikkhus, a certain recluse or a brahmin asserts the following doctrine and view: ' The self , good sir, has material form; it is composed of the four primary elements and originates f...

" The body and mind together are referred to as nāma-rūpa (name and form) or by the term, pañca-khandha (five aggregates). " from ~ Dhamma for Social Renewal: A Collection of Talks (by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu) It is best to not misrepresent Buddhadasa Bhikkhu simply because he gave a talk to puthujjana ...

Re: What is the difference between five aggregate and Nama-rupa?

DN 15 If you understand the principles of Buddha-Dhamma, you would have conviction DN 15 is not Buddha Vaca. Some are of the opinion that all or most or substantial bits of DN/DĀ are later scripture of a less definitive nature designed to either a) convert Brahmins, or b) cater to them by mixing th...

Re: Let's discuss what exactly is "name and form" in DO

Your "Other" or "Next" translation argument is irrelevant to the wrong view you hold of no-rebirth aka annihilation, which the majority of Buddhists or translators do not hold. Again, the above is wrong views. Annihilationism does not mean no-rebirth. :thinking: You are posting village or children'...

The above appears to be blasphemy. The Buddha did not use the word "hetu" in dependent origination.

Re: Let's discuss what exactly is "name and form" in DO

You mention the majority of translators, but the majority of translators believe in rebirth and refer to rebirth. You do not seem to be in the majority. You appear riddled with wrong views of self-views and identitarianism. I already provided you with an unambiguous context but you ignored it. Para...

Re: Let's discuss what exactly is "name and form" in DO

You do realize the translation you quoted says "no beings who are reborn spontaneously", and that Bhikkhu Bodhi also believes in Rebirth and his translations also refer to rebirth as well right? Yes. VBB is wrong here. I said the majority of translators translate "para" to mean "other". I already p...

Re: What is the difference between five aggregate and Nama-rupa?

No. Nāmarūpaṃ hetu in SN 22.82 may not necessarily mean nāmarūpaṃ pacaya in SN 12.65 & 67. I think it does, the context is the same (DO). Sorry but it appears not. The Pali word "hetu" is not necessarily a synonym for the word "paccaya". This has been discussed often; including recently by Assaji, ...
