Re: Experience about "hadaya-vatthu" as an anchor point?

Hi, Please kindly share any experience (or) knowledge about hadaya-vatthu (whatever it may mean to you) as a convenient anchor point during meditation. I practice along the lines of traditional, pre-reform Theravada meditation system, and hadaya-vatthu plays an important role there. Basically, haday...

Is it impossible for Arahants to put their hands in raging fire? Perhaps possible, but they just won't do it.

Re: Did Buddha say "All worldlings are mad'?

Perceiving constancy in the inconstant,
pleasure in the stressful,
self in what's not-self,
attractiveness in the unattractive,
beings, destroyed by wrong-view,
go mad, out of their minds.

Re: nirujjhanti and nirodhā

Hi Asahi,

"Nirujjhanti" is a verb meaning "cease". "Nirodhā", from the same root, is a noun meaning "cessation".

Re: Commentary Review - How did the inconsistencies in the commentaries come about?

Thank you Assaji. You are welcome. Are you a monk? So I can address you correctly. I'm a layman. By the way, I had a look at DN1 and I can't make out what is commentary. Could you copy a small paragraph of the Sutta and highlight what is commentary. Sorry, the link above provides only the Sutta. Yo...

Re: Sallatha Sutta SN 36.6 - The Arrow (or dart, thorn)

The sutta makes a distinction between the raw vedana and the emotional reaction (caitasika). Seeing as how contact still happens at the mind, vedana will still be experienced in relation to mental contacts. What is different for the Arahant is the absence of the caitasika reaction, not the absence ...

Re: Sallatha Sutta SN 36.6 - The Arrow (or dart, thorn)

Sallatha Sutta mentions that in an untrained person, being hurt is like getting hit with two arrows, the bodily feeling (kayika vedana) and then the mental reaction (cetasika vedana). But in a trained person (a disciple of the Buddha), they only feel the bodily one (kayika vedana). Let me draw upon...

Re: Pali Terms: Cetasika and Kāyika, Nirāmisa and Sāmisa

The Abhidharmasamuccaya additionally explains that feeling can also be classified as physical (kāyika) or mental (caitasika), being either related to the five sense perceptions (and thus based on the contact of the five sense faculties with their objects) or to the mental perception (manovijñāna). ...

Re: Sallatha Sutta SN 36.6 - The Arrow (or dart, thorn)

Dear Bhante, The scope of what's comprehended under the first arrow cannot be limited to kāyasamphassajā vedanā alone, for feelings of this type are only sukha or dukkha, yet the sutta's account of the first arrow speaks also of adukkhamasukhā vedanā . This suggests that the said feelings may also b...
