Re: Abhidhamma & the Commentaries indistinguishable from Hinduism?

If the scholars who say this could be cited, what they said it might be a base for a useful discussion. Buddhism's distinctiveness also diminished with the rise of Hindu sects. Though Mahayana writers were quite critical of Hinduism, the devotional cults of Mahayana Buddhism and Hinduism likely see...

Re: abhidhamma

What possible evidence can there be to justify this? The evidence is on this forum, as follows: The very present fact the promoters of Abhidhamma on this forum do not reply to my questions about Abhidhamma's apparent departure from Sutta shows the "self-discounted" nature of Abhidhamma by its own i...

I think it 1st must be learned what 'sati' is. Obviously, if the above question is asked, what sati is is unknown.

Re: abhidhamma

If the abhidhamma was found to be a work of fiction, it would have been discounted as such by many through out its history. Buddhism became extinct in India and nearly extinct in Sri Lanka. This fact shows how "discounted" Abhidhamma & the Commentaries were, whose teachings are held by scholars to ...

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...

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...
