Re: Maha Bodhi Temple Replicas

Hello! Do somebody knows where is this temple in Myanmar? I mean the name, I think it is in Mandalay but not the exactly place. Is awsome https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d4/f8/f3/d4f8f3b3e30a0508d326f7a381c406f7.jpg Yes, I think I know. It's in Mandalay, if that's the one. Actually, I planned to put...

Re: Those rejecting Abhidhamma Pitaka itself (regardless of commentaries) are not actual Theravadins (nor Vibhajjavadins

Why would one want to be christianed as Theravadin if he thinks his ideology is better than accepted Theravada approach? Why would that one want to be regarded as Theravadin (or at least, is unable to accept when others point out that his understandings are not of Theravadin, even though he may some...

A rose by any other name would still be a rose. However, any other flower in the name of rose would not become a rose. Until people decided that it had. Then 'rose' would simply have come to denote a different referent. Adhammasammataṃ kho pana, vāseṭṭha, tena samayena hoti, tadetarahi dhammasammat...

These er-er-er-ers don't make Abhidhamma Pitaka mutilated from Theravada :smile: When mutilated, it becomes other paths, not theravada, according to quote from op. A rose by any other name would still be a rose. However, any other flower in the name of rose would not become a rose. :heart: I'm not ...

Re: Is there a Scientific explanation to "Colored light rays that came out of the Buddha's body"




When the best is not good enough ...



It's unquestionable that the best available sciences these days just aren't good enough to explain all the phenomena related to Buddha Dhamma.

Re: Does vegan never kill another being?

Vegan extremists can definitely cause the death of other sentient beings, thanks to their vegetarianism.

And, this site is not about "Many different forms of Buddhism", it's about "Dhamma of Theravada Buddhism" which, according to the context set in the OP, necessitates Abhidhamma Pitaka as one of its essential ingredients, effectively discarding Abhidhamma rejectors to the other paths. :heart: What a...

Re: "Is it possible to accept Nagarjuna's argument and remain a Theravadan?"

... Thanks, for many interesting points deserving repeated visits. Especially this: The northern Buddhist's version of SN 12.15 thus became severed from its pre-Buddhist and Upanishadic context, whilst the Theravādin sutta retained the historical philosophical contexts of these teachings as did the...

Re: "Is it possible to accept Nagarjuna's argument and remain a Theravadan?"

The paramattha issue is perfectly on topic, because here is the very incompatibility between Theravadin Abhidhamma and Nagarjuna. Apology for not being very clear in my reply. What I mean is: So, one straw-manned issue (of inherent vs. not dependent) (has been successfully) tackled here, regarding ...

Those who reject Abhidhamma Pitaka itself (regardless of commentaries) are not actual Theravadins (nor Vibhajjavadins), according to this An easy way to approach this is to simply as what makes one a Theravādin, a Sarvāstivādin or a Suttavādin? It is their Abhidhamma/Abhidharma and commentaries or,...

Re: "Is it possible to accept Nagarjuna's argument and remain a Theravadan?"

However, I already had a similiar discussion with Ceisiwr about sabhava, and understood that's not the real issue. The real issue is paramattha, so when you'd like to discuss about it, just let me know ;) So, one straw-manned issue tackled here, regarding misalignment between Nagarjunarists (Not ne...

Re: "Is it possible to accept Nagarjuna's argument and remain a Theravadan?"

... ... 'Immanent' doesn't sound compatible with dependence, but it does with 'absolute'. Oh, and 'paramattha' also means 'absolute'. Therefore a dhamma can be considered paramattha only if it's not dependent. The meaning of Absolute in that case needs to be defined, but I'm not on this atm. The po...
