If you are Non-Returner, I imagine you still have to learn Dhamma.

Abhidhamma - roots of physical disability ???

Dear DW Abhidhamma expert/s In the video below, the monk appears to be speaking a doctrine from the Abhidhammattha Sangaha about Ahetuka (no roots), Dvihetukà (two roots) & Tihetuka (three roots) as the cause of physical disability. At 4:30, the monk appears to say a two-rooted person returning to h...

Re: Questions about Abhidhamma

Very soon you will be the Abhidhamma expert in this forum! Thank you however the item below appears to be from commentary ( Abhidhammattha-saṅgaha) rather than from Abhidhamma and appears to be more Buddhaghosa ideas: :smile: (b) for a division of rebirth consciousness into ahetuka, dvihetuka and t...

Re: from name-&-form as a requisite condition comes consciousness.?

Nama - rupa conditions the vinnana, and vinnana conditions the nama - rupa. it's like a water creating a steam, while steam is creating the water, both at the same time. I need to reflect more on that. If nama-rupa is taken to mean 'mind-body', it means the mind-body creates consciousness while con...

Re: Questions about Abhidhamma

hetu: 'cause', condition, reason; (Abhidhamma) root-condition. In sutta usage it is almost synonymous with paccaya, 'condition', and often occurs together with it ('What is the cause, what is the condition', ko hetu ko paccayo). Hetu is not synonymous with paccaya in sutta usage, such as AN 10.61, ...

Questions about Abhidhamma

Dear Abhdihamma expert/s

I thought to start this thread about whatever more simple Abhidhamma questions come to mind.

1st question:

1. The Suttas (eg. MN 9) refer to the roots (mūla) of the unwholesome. Does Abhidhamma use the term "hetu" here, synonymously with "mūla"?

:thanks:

Re: Awareness vs Mindfulness?

Remembering (sati) & contemplating (yoniso manasikara) the Dhamma (sutta) with awareness (Sampajanna). AN 10.61 appears to say yoniso manasikara is the nutriment of sati-sampajanna. Could explain how your idea is the same, similar or different to AN 10.61? Thanks :thanks: Mindfulness and clear comp...

It's different from your earlier claim: There doesn't appear to be an "I am" in there at all. the earlier post was resolved many posts ago. there was no need to keep highlighting it Yes, that's correct. Maybe, but my suggested translation is far different from the translation: "Is there no self". M...

Re: What exactly the meaning of Nirodha in Buddhism?

So what are the differences between vinanna and vinnanam anidassam? 1. vinnanam anidassam was taught to Brahmins & Brahma Gods (DN 11; MN 49) 2. vinnanam anidassam relies on the cessation of a Brahmanistic nama-rupa. 3. after vinnanam anidassam was taught to Brahmins & Brahma Gods, none attained en...
