I have a a point now:
“4] MA (Majjhima Nikāya Atthakatha) states that bodhisattvas follow holy life under the Buddhas, purify virtue, learn buddha’s teachings, practice meditative life, and develop insight to proper knowledge(anulomañana).
But they make no effort to reach the supermundane ways and their fruits (which would end the bodhisattva career)”.
“If one understand, frequently associates and chants even a single gāthā, in terms of Dhamma (dependent origination) and sub-Dhamma (anicca-dukka-anatta), he could practice the four jhānas and he becomes a Théra”.
I had miss something:
“I will put here a text that was reported on a site Theravada by a Brazilian Bhikkhu (Theravada) (Ajahn Mudito) who translated the text straight from the recording tape to the Portuguese. The English translation is from word… The master is Ajahn Chah (deceased more than 20 years ago). The Brazilian Monastery is also of this tradition (Thailand)”
Thank you again to Y not and Lal
Thank you to lal and Y not. The part of that answer is for tomorrow…
Talk with a doctor
Doctor: as I remember having read once, there was a poor family person, but
this kid was a kid who had intelligence so that his parents and brothers thought he would be able to study and graduate. Then the parents and brothers all opened their hands to study for manage to save money to pay for this kid’s studies all went through many difficulties.
This kid then went to college, studied Dhamma and felt deep inspiration
in the Dhamma. When he finished his studies it happened that …, the father, the mother and all the others had great hope that when he was formed he would support the family, he would be able to work and make money by helping the younger brothers or helping to share the burden of father and mother, or that is, the father and mother would be able to rest a little so that they could help their younger children later, but it happened that this kid when he finished his studies was very inspired by the Dhamma to the point of asking for license from the father and mother not to go to work, wanted to ordain himself monk. Father and Mother, they cried and tried to stop but the son said he had a lot of faith in the Buddha’s religion, “Don’t imped me!”
In the end the parents had to give permission for the son to become a monk, but from my point of view, as far as I’ve read and heard, I feel like they’re probably….(the complete text is too long…)
And how to proceed if you have already lost attachment to this world, became a Sakanagami and cannot simply let yourself die (not suicide), but has many responsibilities still with wife,son, or brothers or people who depend on you, children, pets that cannot support yourself if you leave this mute, even though it is very difficult for you to accept the things of this world, things of the human kingdom …
And if you go to the Anagami stage the things go worst????
It is a big problem…
I used to (had the custom) to watch certain TV series that I like very much.
But recently always studying the Dhamma and reading Puredhamma.net, and more recently, desanas from Waharaka thero, I suddenly realized that I had lost the desire to watch TV and so I’m weeks without even to turn on the TV for news….
“2. Liking “this world” and “liking Nibbāna” are mutually exclusive.”
Exactly the point!”
To All of you!
Many thanks to all of you of this FORUM…
May the blessings of the Lord Buddha, Dhamma and Samgha be with all of you,
Thank you, Lal for everything you do for me and everyone…
“Here is another key point:
Listening is not required to attain the Sotapanna Anugāmi stage.
It is also clear that a Sotapanna Anugami is also freed from the apāyās. See,
“Sōtapanna Anugāmi – No More Births in the Apāyās”
It is clear to me that he will be able to reach all other stages of Nibbana without hearing a desana, only reading and talking and participating in meetings with Aryas as is the case of “Puredhamma.net!”
I have the transcription of the first desana from Waharaka Thero: “Know the Thilakuna – Universal Truth Exposure – Episode 01”
But the other two desanas I couldn’t have it, only the video. Not the transcription…
Does anyone have these transcripts?
“2. Also on page 7 of Waharaka Thero discourse No. 7, it is said: “…‘Sañ’+ udaya = Samudaya’. ‘Sañ’ means union, formation. If something arises from formation, ‘sabbam tam’, all those are, ‘nirodha dhammam’, not worthy of pursuing. If we say ‘nirodha dhammam’ means perishable, that is wrong. …”
And were is the Waharaka Thero discourse No. 7 ??
I had miss something???
You need to consider that there is Bhava and Jati. When a being can be reborn human due to his good Kamma he can achieve, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 or more years of existence as a human… (Bhava). That can mean many births as humans.
And it is also necessary to consider that there is an infinite number of beings and only approximately 7,000,000 human beings. If you also consider that there is a number, 3 or 4 times more of human Gandhabbas waiting to be reborn, all this added up is negligible near the number of species on the planet.
Over trillions of species. The chance of one of these beings being born in the human kingdom is negligible, immensely less…May 1, 2020 at 11:40 am in reply to: GANDHABBA – 1 or 2 pieces are missing in (my) puzzle #29386
