Re: What is more reliable? Visuddhi Magga or Vimuttimagga?

  • Comparatively, Vissudhimagga is more beneficial:
    • being more matured
    • encompassing pinnacle of accrued wisdom of great minds in lineage of the Buddha, not limited to the the wisdom surrounding Venerable Upatissa's time.

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

Wonderful experience, undoubtedly. Yet, I don't believe a bit regarding claim of "Final Awakening", regardless of the names of the methods/techniques purportedly mentioned to be associated, on seeing one of the videos. https://youtu.be/ZGN9nCJ33Tk Posted Jun 4, 2020 From youtube description: 2 week...

Re: "Is consciousness me? " ... 40 Days @ Pa Auk / Experiences of a Goenkaji's student

... “Consciousnesses” were arising with their respective sensations. It all came as a “package deal”. ... Questions like how “I” felt can’t be asked. They are fundamentally flawed. ... ... they were also amazing and useful times. This is exactly what I experienced when I was pumped up by the Books ...

"Is consciousness me? " ... 40 Days @ Pa Auk / Experiences of a Goenkaji's student

40-DAY MEDITATION RETREAT AT PA-AUK TAWYA, BURMA WHY I DECIDED TO GO MEDITATE AT PA-AUK TAWYA I heard about Pa Auk by doing a web research. Exploring the fascinating world of concentration practices appealed to me. In my previous 10-day Goenka Vipassana retreats, we only did 3 days of concentration...

Re: Questions about Pa-Auk Forest Monastery Main Branch

This Thailand Pa-Auk center might be contacted, through the contact info on the website, considering the re-opening of international entries by Thai government soon, imo. Being still in the midst of second wave Covid-19 crisis, I think Myanmar might not be a feasible option, at least next 3-6 months...

Re: Good video series on Taoism.

... Dun look like a translation to me. It is more of a inserting Tao definitions and own theories into the heart sutra. It's "Commentary By Grand Master T’an Hsu" on Heart Sutra,in some Taoist way. And,as I've said, apart from Tao [and Self/Universe], the explanations seems more anatta-ish than som...

Re: Buddhist concept of rebirth?

To get an ultimate answer you need to strive to achieve enlightenment but do they who embark on this path and have obtained this knowledge will tell you what is the truth? I doubt that. Why this topic, then? Samma vayama or right effort is the answer for striving. May I respectfully ask, Striving f...

Analayo tends to be academically quite non-neutral at times (not to mention his questionable opinions on some areas and historical events that he doesn't know thoroughly about), and in that sense it's safe to say he is...
