Re: khanti (patience) and khama (patient) are coming from the same root right?

... Thanks Bhante, that is useful to know. What about khama as 'forgiveness'? For example, in Theravada monks ask each other for forgiveness with this exchange (don't know where this comes from, not from suttas AFAIK): khamāmi, khamitabbam. (I forgive you , please forgive me ) I learned it from a t...

Re: khanti (patience) and khama (patient) are coming from the same root right?

... Dear Frank, this online dictionary gives the PMA (Pāli-Myanmar Abidan [dictionary]) Pāḷi etymologies without the recourse to Sanskrit -- such recourse is not unproblematic (yet helpful at times) since it is, after all, a different language ... But here Rhys Davids gave the equivalent Skt. roots...

Re: MN8/DN15: ending of perceptions of impingement/resistance

Here I explore in detail the the infinite space dimension formula: http://lucid24.org/sted/8aam/8samadhi/smd5/index.html The solution to the OP's question comes from studying how the words patigha and nanatta are used in the suttas. And also what rupa is referring to. Rupa from the four jhanas, is r...

Re: Piti in the Seven Factors of Awakening

detailed research on the topic: http://lucid24.org/sted/7sb/4piti/index.html and here for many sutta passages: http://lucid24.org/sted/7sb/4piti/book/index.html Note that mudita as a brahmavihara, pamojjja + piti, are all very closely related practices. One of the big misconceptions people have abou...

Can someone give a complete translation of this line?

Re: Great tip on metta practice from Ajahn Jayasaro, "be specific"

I like B. Thanissaro's interpretation of metta. I'm not sure the EBT is specific enough to support his interpretation. That will be a research project for some other time... Remember the 4 brahma viharas were a non buddhist practice that he incorporated, their original goal was to be reborn in the c...

Great tip on metta practice from Ajahn Jayasaro, "be specific"

excerpt:
I heard this on an old recorded Dhamma talk of his, not a quote, just a very rough inaccurate paraphrase of the gist of what he said.

Re: Ven Jiv.' pali chanting SN 47 first vagga: Much better than the (maha) satipatthana suttas:

What do you propose as more accurate gold standards for pali pronunciation? audtip.org is always looking to add and improve its collection. I don't understand your comment about Ven. Jiv's pronunciation of letter 'v'. To my american ear, it does sound like a combined v+w most of the time, with a few...
