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

I am glad to have finished the third edition of the book. A lot has changed in relation to the previous version. Although the previous version has a complete explanation of the path, it is overly detailed in parts that are not strictly necessary to understand the path. These parts could create a lot...

This is a funny idea.
Unless the teaching dissolves itself. ;) If not, it also doesn't lead to Nibbana, as Nibbana is unconditioned.

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

I am going to move my activity over to the Dharmapaths forum. That forum seems to be a better platform to lay out my teaching, as this topic, and the 'On Your Way Home' topic, made it clear for me that my teaching, which is not a doctrine, is not the same as Theravada, which is a doctrine. So I am a...

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

On Nāgārjuna https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?p=581942#p581942 . I took a look into the teaching of Nagarjuna, and it appears to me that he is indeed liberated by Cetovimutti. He reasons that every position in relation to existence in epistemology cannot be attained, by saying; there cannot be...

Re: Against Nāgārjuna

http://www.palikanon.com/english/wtb/b_f/ceto_vimutti.htm Where is there mention that the 8th jhana would have a fruition that is Pannavimutti? I found it being mentioned on the website Access to insight. To clear this up from a theravada perspective, not that it is any of my concern though, but al...

Re: Against Nāgārjuna

This doesn't seem to correspond with Theravada doctrine. In that case your reasonings about Nagarjuna would not be based on Theravada perspective and be off-topic and would not contribute to the topic of this thread. http://www.palikanon.com/english/wtb/b_f/ceto_vimutti.htm Where is there mention t...

Re: Against Nāgārjuna

Also what remains unclear to me is if his teaching also leads to Pannavimutti, as it seems he only took an intellectual perspective through reasoning, and liberation of Panna is not attained through reasoning. Cetovimutti is attained before Pannavimutti, so they do not come simultaneously. And I ex...

Re: Against Nāgārjuna

PeterC86 I celibrate Nagarjuna, and everyone who fully understands his teaching. Apparently there are more people who found Nibbana through fully understanding the middle way! It’s not the middle way. It’s an extreme reaction. No, that is what you think if you don't fully understand his reasoning. ...

Re: Memorization and the Oral Tradition

You invented your own Buddhism, your own religion/spirituality; as such, you're only catching what you yourself have thrown. I didn't invent it, I dissolved it. :) Hence I've always advocated that the privilege of posting at this forum should be reserved only for those who have attained at least st...

Re: Memorization and the Oral Tradition

Do you find my post stressful? Only tiresome, because I constantly have to start from zero again.... My friend, you could have it much easier if you eventually accepted that this forum section is dedicated to Theravada buddhism. It is not dedicated to competitions of the type "my doctrine is better...

Re: Memorization and the Oral Tradition

The "burden"? Interesting... Oh boy.... I used the word burden to refer to a heavy load; a lot of work. And it is exactly these kind of posts that make it a burden. Do you find my post stressful?

Re: Memorization and the Oral Tradition

I hope that it will not take too long before others start reaching Nibbana, so that they can help teaching, and share the burden. The "burden"? Interesting... Oh boy.... I used the word burden to refer to a heavy load; a lot of work. And it is exactly these kind of posts that make it a burden.
