So how about Gossiping or the tattling about others lives ? You are wasting your time and others time. Talk that is productive towards betterment of oneself, which lacks proper reasoning (mud slinging), if you are monk not connected with the goal, the pratice, the Dhamma or Vinaya. How does Buddhism explain specifically about TATTLING ?? If it is to ...

This may not exactly be the answer that you're looking for, but it's related. It doesn't say at which council, but it speculates on the chronology of different parts of the Pali Canon, from an academic viewpoint. On this page and this page, you can find the "Chronology Of The Pali Canon" by Dr. Bimala Churn Law. Here, it is written in the beginning: ...

The Sutta Nipata source is Sn-A 3.10: Roman Pali: http://tipitaka.org/romn/cscd/s0505a.att2.xml Sinhalese Pali: http://tipitaka.org/sinh/cscd/s0505a.att2.xml The relevant passage is: Atha kho brahmā sahampatīti ko ayaṃ brahmā, kasmā ca bhagavantaṃ upasaṅkamitvā etadavocāti?

I converted the pdf to html some years ago using pdf2html but due to copyright issues it can't be shared publicly. When I posted it on our website, the publisher (a Buddhist monk) promptly threatened to sue. I doubt getting permission from the publisher would be easy, unless leadership has changed in the meantime. Nyanamoli's original translation should ...

The two versions of the PDF (i.e. Budaedu and Access to Insight -- and actually the copy on Access to Insight's was published by the Buddhist Publication Society) are both based on similar text (i.e. translated from the Pali by Bikkhu Nanamoli). I know approximately what PDF format is (i.e. it's a container for data) but don't know it well (e.g. I don't ...

So jāti-paṭiccasamuppāda is viññāna-paṭiccasamuppāda. No, this is not a proper statement. jāti refers to conceptual birth of a satta, both in paṭiccasamuppāda and the sacca-pabba: Katamā ca, bhikkhave, jāti? Yā tesaṃ tesaṃ sattānaṃ tamhi tamhi satta-nikāye jāti The difference is: Jāti-paṭiccasamuppāda is 5 khandha. jāti is the event of being born, it ...

AN 3.87 didn't provide any specific instance but in this sutta, the Buddha talked about 3 grades of stream enterers from low to high: ...Having undertaken the training rules, he trains in them. With the utter destruction of three fetters, he is a seven-times-at-most attainer who, after roaming and wandering on among devas and humans seven times at most, ...
