Re: Mahāviyūhasutta Snp 4.13 (Week of April 18, 2021)

Sīlabbataṁ vāpi pahāya sabbaṁ, Kammañca sāvajjanavajjametaṁ; Suddhiṁ asuddhinti apatthayāno, Virato care santimanuggahāya 6. But having abandoned all virtue and practice and action, whether blameworthy or blameless, with no aspiration regarding “the pure and the impure”, he would live unconcerned, ...

Re: DN 2 conclusively details: What is rūpa (form), and a-rūpa in four jhānas context?

You haven’t demonstrated much. You simply assert that rupa here must mean “matter” and then make absurd claims about literal cloning. :goodpost: FrankK's highlighted quotes appear unrelated to jhana itself. "Absurd" appears to be an understatement. I've always heard Rupa defined as "object of atten...

Re: Ideal Wife

(After S.IV.239) Im interested in reading this full sutta. can you provide a link? The commentary of P.A. Payutto I posted is an extrapolation of SN 37.3 rather than a literal teaching. Other relevant more literal suttas are AN 4.55, AN 4.53 and DN 31. "In five ways, young householder, should a wif...

Re: Ideal Wife

So what should I look out for as an ideal husband, if I ever decided to have one? Suttas say the ideal husband: E. A sympathetic husband: There are a number of conditions peculiar to a woman about which a husband should be considerate and to which he should respond with care and sympathy. They are:...

Re: Abhidhamma makes things really easy regarding interpretations of Dhamma

Just recently, a thought occured to me ... Abhidhamma also appears to have its own versions of Dependent Origination with only "nama" rather than "namarupa". For example: 2. Abhidhammabhājanīya 2.1. Paccayacatukka Avijjāpaccayā saṅkhāro, saṅkhārapaccayā viññāṇaṁ, viññāṇapaccayā nāmaṁ , nāma paccayā...

Re: Abhidhamma makes things really easy regarding interpretations of Dhamma

Mod note: Calling a section of the Abhidhamma 'secular heresy' is not permitted in this forum. Future breaks of forum rules may result in a suspension. If you wish to query the quote that is fine here. But if the aim is to discredit that is better done in the Early Buddhism forum. Not so fast. I ch...

Re: Abhidhamma makes things really easy regarding interpretations of Dhamma

Abhidhamma makes things really easy regarding interpretations of Dhamma :roll: Since ignorance is an underlying tendency (anusaya), it appears sankhara is not necessary a condition for ignorance. How does the "authoritativeness" of the Abhidhamma explain this? :shrug: With ignorance as condition th...

Re: sati n samma sati

I am not a Pali expert by my understanding is that Sati is a Cetasika which is in every consciousness. Sounds wrong. For example, being conscious of the noise of sudden unexpected thunder i imagine involves no mindfulness. Cetasika means what ? Its Abhidhamma jargon for those who believe they have ...

Re: Abhidhamma makes things really easy regarding interpretations of Dhamma

Pride of birth... the conceit thus, “I am better”... eel wriggling... While the above could be found in any reasonable secular dictionary, what does the Abhidhamma mean by the term "pride of birth" ("jātimado")? Is it pride of gushing out or being pushed out of a vagina, soaked in fluid & blood? Or...

Re: Asura realm

Is this realm sometimes categorised under another realm? Or is it a realm that exist simultaneously with another realm? I don't really remember I have read about someone in the sutta that has reborned as an asura. It appears Iti 93 is the only sutta that separates the asura realm from the rest of t...

an attempt to translate commentary You should compare the commentary to my answer; to identify any inferior faults in the commentary.
