Can somebody provide a grammatical analysis for this sentence?

hetupaccayoti hetū hetusampayuttakānaṃ dhammānaṃ taṃsamuṭṭhānānañca rūpānaṃ hetupaccayena paccayo. This is the first sentence in Paṭṭhāna. According to my limited Pali knowledge, hetū is the subject (masculine, plural). My questions are: 1) What is the function of "paccayo"? Why is it singular? 2) ...

Re: Did Thanissaro Bhikkhu really make such a comment on the attainments of Pa-auk and Mahasi??

I never said that I knew for a fact that there were no awakened people in these systems. I did say to a small group of students that I had doubts about these systems, but I probably shouldn’t have said even that much. Comments of this sort should not be for public consumption. Thanissaro Bhikkhu Th...

Re: Did Thanissaro Bhikkhu really make such a comment on the attainments of Pa-auk and Mahasi??

I sent an inquiry email to the Metta Monastery via dhammatalks.[email protected].com, but they did not respond. Just FYI, it says on the site (at "Contact") that that email address is only for technical issues like broken links; contact regarding Dhamma is listed below that. It is stated on the site t...

Did Thanissaro Bhikkhu really make such a comment on the attainments of Pa-auk and Mahasi??

Last month, I came across a lecture given by William Chu (朱倍贤) in 2018,regarding Ajahn Geoff's comments on Sayadaws Pa-Auk and Mahasi. But I searched online and found no similar public comments made by Ajahn Geoff. I wonder whether Ajahn Geoff really gave such comments on Pa-auk and Mahasi systems. ...

Re: What is pārihārikapaññā in Visuddhimagga

Thank you! It seems the concept parihariyapañña was exclusively used by Buddhaghosa. I suppose basing on the verse, he invented the idea of this threefold wisdom.

Re: What is pārihārikapaññā in Visuddhimagga

Dear Santa,
Thank you very much. Instead of pārihārikapaññā, I noticed that the word you mentioned is parihariyapañña. Are they the same? Was the word invented by Buddhaghosa or borrowed from somewhere else?
