So it would not be parajika to falsely claim stages of vipassana.
What offence it would be? Does the Vinaya specify it?

vipassanāñāṇa is not a superior human state?

In the book The Nude Monk's Burning Robes the author says: Some bhikkhus intentionally claimed falsely that they have insight knowledges (vipassanāñāṇa), following the commentarial erroneous argument of ' insight knowledge is not a superior human state .' (page 7) But the author did not give us the ...

Re: Does eating meat violate the second precept?

Vegetables and the planet earth have no emotion, so they are non-sentient beings in Buddhism.
They do not count.

Nicolas wrote: Fri Jan 25, 2019 7:50 pm If A steals from B and then B sells or gives to C, A is breaking a precept, while C is breaking no precept.
In order to buy meat, A pays B to slaughter the animal, A breaks no precept according to Buddhist ethics.
Do I understand it correctly?

So bees do not have the legal rights to their honey too?
To steal honey from bees is not stealing??
Do you mean according to Buddhism, to steal from an animal does not harm its feeling because they do not have the concept of ownership?

Does eating meat violate the second precept?

In my opinion, eating meat violates the second precept——to take what is not given.
The meat belongs to the animal or its family.
People eat the meat without the consent of the animal and its family.
This is obviously robbery.
Might is right--does this apply to Buddhists too?

what do these Pali abbreviations mean?

yadi vā so samaṇako ’’ ti [yadi vā samaṇakoti (sī. syā. pī.)].
kāraṇḍavaṃ [kāraṇḍaṃ va (syā. ka.) a. ni. 8.10] niddhamatha.

I know the Pali words in the brackets are alternative readings, but what about the following abbreviations: sī, syā, pī, yā, ka, a, ni, 8.10 ?

Re: What's the meaning of "pañcā nodhi sattodhisā, siyuṃ dvādasapuggalā"?

I think it is something like "five" (pañcā) and "seven" (satta) "would be" (siyuṃ, optative plural 3rd person of as) "twelve people" (dvādasapuggalā). But I don't know what is "nodhi" and "odhisā". It is difficult to translated verses, especially without any context. I initially wanted to get the m...
