Re: What is the Chinese translation for the term "body witness"

it refers to the thing itself . 者 describes the bodily witness . Sort of : (This) bodily witness . It is a way of describing .
But , if you want to follow the english translation it can means the person or attainer .


And if you want to translate only "bodily witness" it should be 身證 .

Re: What is the Chinese translation for the term "body witness"

Here is the chinese translation .

增支部9集43經

身證者經

「學友!被稱為『身證者、身證者』,大德!什麼情形是世尊所說的身證者呢?」
Either 身證者 or 身作證者

But In mandarin the literal translation is
親身體證者 .

Re: Formless aggregates

I'm not sure what the others mean, but are we not already in the dimension of infinite space? Do we know an end to space? The question is about what type of aggregates that immaterial plane beings have . Pls see the quote below it doesnt mention what type of aggregates of beings remains in respecti...

Formless aggregates

What would be the aggregates of the beings if they are in the dimension of infinite space , dimension of infinite consciousness , dimension of infinite nothingness , dimension of neither perception nor non-perception and dimension of cessation of feeling perception ?

Pamudita here is an adjective "joyful", "glad", denoting one who experiences pāmojja (joy).

Note the difference in ending: altruistic joy (muditā) has a long final 'ā'
Okay . Many thanks

Re: Piti and pamojja

what about mudita , is it synonymous with pamojja ? I am a bit confused here since mudita also meant joy . Mudita is different, it is altruistic joy on experiencing the happiness of others.

Re: Piti and pamojja

Hi Asahi, I don't have full glosses at hand, but I can say that in a nutshell - pamojja is less intense.

Re: Risk of taking vaccine jab

The risk of not taking it is FAR greater than taking it. Therefore, if you are concerned about risk, then you should take it because taking it is less risky. A Buddhist should not risk their life by not taking it. I've taken it, I'm perfectly fine. And now I'm helping to protect the people around m...
