What is the name of the sutta?

Could you please tell me what is the name of the sutta in which the Buddha sorts 8 components of Eightfold Path of the Nobles into three groups (discipline, meditation and wisdom)?

Re: entered upon the path of ariya vs ariya

Only the arya can follow the Aryan way. Non-arya cannot follow the Aryan way. There is no arya that does not follow the path of the aria. Therefore, there is no difference between the arya and the arya that has entered the path of the arya.

Whose well-being is more valuable?

Suppose the grown families of farmers (Buddhists) cut down the virgin forest for pasture, etc., thereby harming rare animals. What can the Buddhist Dhamma advise on this? Whose well-being is more valuable from a Buddhist point of view?

Re: Are there any analogues of the practice of vipassana?

No. Vipassana is about fully understanding anicca, dukkha and anatta. No. The practice of vipassana is about staying in the observation of what is. You are confusing the practice of vipashyana with the result of this practice. "is about" is not an equation. You have asked a question which has been ...

Re: concept of luck

Buddhism teaches Niyama or Pacaya. Kamma is only one of them. So chance or luck play a part in it too. ======= Causality The Abhidhamma teaches us that: there are natural laws which govern the universe (niyaama dhammaa); our mental and physical states arise dependent on causes — dependent originati...

concept of luck

Good luck in the world is what Buddhism calls good karma. There is no concept of luck in Buddhism.

Re: Is it possible to see khandhas?

I think the purpose of the satiratthana is to see the emergence and disappearance of dhammas. What you think is wrong. Here, a bhikkhu lives a seer ( anupassī ) of body with reference to the body... a seer of feelings with reference to feelings ... a seerer of mind with reference to the mind .... a...

Is it possible to see khandhas?

Is it possible to see khandhas as a result of advancing in the practice of vipassana or khandhas are just one of the varieties of dhamma sorting?

Isn't it weird that the word hearing is used here instead of "listening to"?

Re: the name of the sutra?

Is there no such matrix in its pure form in the whole Theravada (sutras, abhidhamma, shastras)?
