upanisasutta.pdfTranscendental Dependent Arising - Translation & Exposition of the Upanisa Sutta1038 viewsTucked away in the Samyutta Nikaya among the “connected sayings on causality” (Nidanasamyutta) is a short formalized text entitled the Upanisa Sutta, the “Discourse on Supporting Conditions.” The Upanisa sutta reveals the entire course of man’s faring in the world as well as his treading of the path to its transcendence. This exposition sets out to explore the, “transcendental” application of dependent arising, drawing freely from other parts of the Canon and the commentaries to fill out the meaning.Nov 16, 2013
Wings_of_Awakening.pdf
Wings_of_Awakening.pdfThe Wings to Awakening - An Anthology from the Pali Canon1349 viewsMany anthologies of the Buddha's teachings have appeared in English, but this is the first to be organized around the set of teachings that the Buddha himself said formed the heart of his message: the Wings to Awakening. The material is arranged in three parts, preceded by a long Introduction. The Introduction tries to define the concept of Awakening so as to give a clear sense of where the Wings to Awakening are headed. It does this by discussing the Buddha's accounts of his own Awakening, with special focus on the way in which the principle of skilful kamma formed both the “how" and the \what" of that Awakening: The Buddha was able to reach Awakening only by developing skilful kamma this is the “how"; his understanding of the process of developing skilful kamma is what sparked the insights that constituted Awakening - this is the “what."Nov 16, 2013
