This phenomena shows how great the Buddha was; and why the suttas say there can only be one Sammasambuddha in a world system.

Re: Some thoughts on Satipaṭṭhāna, Ānāpānasati, the Satta Bojjhaṅgā and Jhāna

How the impermanence, fading, cessation and relinquishment are related to satta bojjhaṅgā? The above appears related to SN 22.59, as follows: “ Seeing [impermanence] thus, bhikkhus, the instructed noble disciple experiences revulsion towards form, revulsion towards feeling, revulsion towards percep...

Re: Some thoughts on Satipaṭṭhāna, Ānāpānasati, the Satta Bojjhaṅgā and Jhāna

In short, it appears the term 'satipatthana' simply means 'establishing mindfulness'. While the Buddha highlighted four necessary areas of satipatthana for awakening, namely, body, feelings, mental states & higher truth, the list of objects of satipatthana can be endless, such as satipatthana toward...

Re: How exactly was Angulimala redeemed?

The mind realised anatta; that there was no self that did those former evil deeds. The doer of those former evil deeds was merely the element of ignorance. Refer to SN 12.17.

Re: Some thoughts on Satipaṭṭhāna, Ānāpānasati, the Satta Bojjhaṅgā and Jhāna

You can see that I have added in the four postures, clear comprehension, 4 elements and charnel ground to the kaya group The above is subversion. The above manner of speaking is unrelated to Anapanasati. Anapanasati is about the breathing and calm & insight that occurs in relation to & in associati...

Re: Some thoughts on Satipaṭṭhāna, Ānāpānasati, the Satta Bojjhaṅgā and Jhāna

The first is that the Ānāpānasati sutta should not be read in a strict forward order. Appears a wrong subversive idea. Refer to AN 5.159 . That is to say, the practice is not strictly linear. Appears a wrong subversive idea. Refer to AN 5.159 . The second rests on Sujato's idea of Mūlasatipaṭṭhāna....

If Thanissaro Bhikkhu engaged in more discussion, such as on Dhamma Wheel, his variable understanding of Buddha-Dhamma may have improved & refined.

Re: Buddhist practice as a monastic in another religion?

Opinions will be greatly appreciated. Lots of original/historical Christian monasticism & Sufi mysticism appeared to be Buddhism in disguise. The bottom line is you will still have to find a Christian monastery that accommodates mysticism rather than superstition. Once this can be done then in comm...
