Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

This is the final version of the book. I can recommend it to everyone who has started to read a previous version of the book, as the information re-added to this version appeared to be vital in practice. I made two versions for this occasion, one in A4 format, and one more suitable for phones. Now I...

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

Only some subtle changes in the content, most of them to improve the reading flow. I have put effort in the design for this version though. This version is more pleasant on the eyes, as I have switched from black on white, to light-grey on dark-green. I also made the format easier to read on phones....

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

I still found a couple of linguistic errors and inconsistencies, and I found a way to expand on the explanation of Samsara and release of the so-called 'rebirth'. So just to be thorough;

Re: Mundane and supramundane right view in Peter C86's Dhamma

Which section will you post in over there? I have posted everything I know in the General Buddhism section. But, I will also seize my activities there, just as I will stop posting here. I will leave the Buddhist community entirely, and I will explain why below. you really shouldn't go you know Than...

Re: Unconditioned

Nibbana is unconditioned , meaning ? How a conditioned mind get to know what is unconditioned ? How this dhamma get to be visible ? Thanks Hi asahi, In short, Nibbana is unconditioned, meaning that when attained, one has dissolved any identification with form and formless conditioning. This dhamma ...

Re: Āryanāgārjuna expounds dependent origination

Two deluded actions arise from three deluded causes; seven uncontrolled results arise from those two deluded actions. Again, three deluded causes arise from these seven results. Such a wheel of life goes round and round. (Pratītyasamutpādahṝdayakārikā) The actions are links 2 and 10. The causes are...

Re: Property

:offtopic: Can you explain how this relates to property? My son, I am trying to explain that nothing can be owned, therefore there can be no responsibility, and no (self-centered) kamma, as everything is not-self, beause of dependent origination, and therefore Nibbana is unconditioned. But Theravad...

Re: Property

As usual your posts are so riddled with theatrics that it is not so easy to decipher your actual question, but it seems as though you're asking how "discipline" and "Dhamma" apply to the same situation. Is that really what you're asking? Do you know what those terms mean in the suttas? I asked; How...

Re: Property

...Sir, how does one know and see so that there’s no ego, possessiveness, or underlying tendency to conceit for this conscious body and all external stimuli?” “Rāhula, one truly sees any kind of form at all—past, future, or present; internal or external; coarse or fine; inferior or superior; far or...

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

... my 'teaching' only explains dependent origination, another phantasmagoria Maybe you can explain to me what you are doing here on this forum? I am interested. You postulate your emptiness, which is the same as new-age, Brahmanism, and what not; all is consciousness/infinity/emptiness. I suspect ...

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

I see that you've already settled on your elaborations that you have derived from theravada doctrine. That's the basis for your urge to teach. I can totally accept that as expression of your personal experience but what puzzles me is your talk of "we". On the other hand there wouldn't be any teache...

Re: On Your Way Home - A Road to Nirvana for the West

When I read the 3rd and 4th editions it reminded me of when I would listen to teachings on metta and karuna. They sounded good and I might start to think it possible until the next person comes along and crosses my path. That's when my real reactions come back instantly. How does this book offer so...
