This was said by the Blessed One, said by the Arahant, so I have heard: “There are these three supreme objects of confidence. Which three?
“Among whatever beings there may be — footless, two-footed, four-footed, many footed; with form or formless; percipient, non-percipient, neither percipient nor non-percipient — the Tathagata, worthy & rightly self-awakened, is considered supreme. Those who have confidence in the Awakened One have confidence in what is supreme; and for those with confidence in the supreme, supreme is the result.
“ qualities there may be, fabricated or unfabricated, the quality of dispassion — the subduing of intoxication, the elimination of thirst, the uprooting of attachment, the breaking of the round, the destruction of craving, dispassion, cessation, the realization of Unbinding — is considered supreme. Those who have confidence in the quality of dispassion have confidence in what is supreme; and for those with confidence in the supreme, supreme is the result.
“Among whatever fabricated qualities there may be, the Noble Eightfold Path — right view, right resolve, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration — is considered supreme. Those who have confidence in the Noble Eightfold Path have confidence in what is supreme; and for those with confidence in the supreme, supreme is the result.
“Among whatever communities or groups there may be, the Sangha of the Tathagata’s disciples is considered supreme — i.e., the four [groups of noble disciples] when taken as pairs, the eight when taken as persons. Those who have confidence in the Sangha have confidence in what is supreme; and for those with confidence in the supreme, supreme will be the result.
“These, monks, are the three supreme objects of confidence.”

LESSON 91 The Discourse on the Orderliness of the Dhamma 18 11 2010 FREE ONLINE eNālandā Research and Practice UNIVERSITY
Traditionally the are 84,000 Dharma Doors - 84,000 ways to get Awakeness. Maybe so; certainly the Buddha taught a large number of practices that lead to Awakeness. This web page attempts to catalogue those found in the Pali Suttas (DN, MN, SN, AN, Ud & Sn 1). There are 3 sections:
The discourses of Buddha are divided into 84,000, as to separate addresses. The division includes all that was spoken by Buddha.”I received from Buddha,” said Ananda, “82,000 Khandas, and from the priests 2000; these are 84,000 Khandas maintained by me.” They are divided into 275,250, as to the stanzas of the original text, and into 361,550, as to the stanzas of the commentary. All the discourses including both those of Buddha and those of the commentator, are divided into 2,547 banawaras, containing 737,000 stanzas, and 29,368,000 separate letters.
“‘This is the direct path for the purification of beings, for the overcoming of sorrow & lamentation, for the disappearance of pain & distress, for the attainment of the right method, & for the realization of Unbinding — in other words, the four frames of reference.’ Thus was it said, and in reference to this was it said.”
That is what the Blessed One said. Gratified, the monks delighted in the Blessed One’s words.
BUDDHA (EDUCATE)! DHAMMA (MEDITATE)! SANGHA (ORGANISE)!
WISDOM IS POWER
Awakened One Shows the Path to Attain Ultimate Bliss
Using such an instrument
The Free ONLINE e-Nālandā Research and Practice University has been re-organized to function through the following Schools of Learning :
Buddha’s Sangha Practiced His Dhamma Free of cost, hence the Free- e-Nālandā Research and Practice University follows suit
As the Original Nālandā University did not offer any Degree, so also the Free e-Nālandā Research and Practice University.
The teachings of Buddha are eternal, but even then Buddha did not proclaim them to be infallible. The religion of Buddha has the capacity to change according to times, a quality which no other religion can claim to have…Now what is the basis of Buddhism? If you study carefully, you will see that Buddhism is based on reason. There is an element of flexibility inherent in it, which is not found in any other religion.

Dhamma-niyama Sutta: The Discourse on the Orderliness of the Dhamma
translated from the Pali by
“Monks, whether or not there is the arising of Tathagatas, this property stands — this steadfastness of the Dhamma, this orderliness of the Dhamma: All processes are inconstant.
“The Tathagata directly awakens to that, breaks through to that. Directly awakening & breaking through to that, he declares it, teaches it, describes it, sets it forth. He reveals it, explains it, & makes it plain: All processes are inconstant.
“Whether or not there is the arising of Tathagatas, this property stands — this steadfastness of the Dhamma, this orderliness of the Dhamma: All processes are stressful.
“The Tathagata directly awakens to that, breaks through to that. Directly awakening & breaking through to that, he declares it, teaches it, describes it, sets it forth. He reveals it, explains it, & makes it plain: All processes are stressful.
“The Tathagata directly awakens to that, breaks through to that. Directly awakening & breaking through to that, he declares it, teaches it, describes it, sets it forth. He reveals it, explains it, & makes it plain: All phenomena are not-self.”
The suttas are inconsistent on the question of whether Unbinding counts as a phenomenon (dhamma). , among others, states clearly that it is. , however, calls Unbinding the ending of all phenomena. quotes the Buddha as calling the attainment of the goal the transcending of all phenomena, just as and state that the arahant has transcended dispassion, said to be the highest phenomenon. If the former definition applies here, Unbinding would be not-self. If the latter, the word phenomenon (as more inclusive than fabrication) would apply to the non-returner’s experience of the Deathless (see ). The arahant’s experience of Unbinding would be neither self nor not-self, as it lies beyond all designations (see ).

APEAL TO SAVE
DR. BABASAIAB AMBEDKAR’S
BIRTH PLACE MEMORIAL
FROM DESTRUCTIVE ACTION OF THE ESTATE OFFICER
CANTONMENT BOARD. MHOW
Despite challenging before the honorable high court Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh for interim relief in illegal action of the estate officer cantonment board Mhow by digging for underground sumptank nearby [adjoining land ] The Dr. Babasahab Ambedkar smarak at his birth place Mhow to raise illegal construction of fire brigade station which will definitely damage the monument hampering it’s strength , it’s beauty and it’s sacred importance , as per opinion of the architect consultant , collector and P.W.D. Indore .The estate officer cantonment board still continuing illegal construction speedily with ill intention.
So now it is felt necessary ,all the democratic agencies audio visual agencies ,print media agencies and all political leaders who believe Dr.Ambedkar deserve to be commemorate for centuries as he devoted his life for social justice and religious revolution and had succeeded in getting included socio-economic and political equal rights as fundamental rights in the constitution, they all should raise the voice country wide on street and in parliament as well.
I feel it is the moral duty of the all constitutionally elected public representatives to make the parliament to resolve in this parliament session to not to allow construction surrounding to safeguard the strength , beauty, and sacred importance of the monument. This monument is naturally surrounded by all religious temples. In the east swarn mandir a Jain temple in the west masjid and in the south Ram mandir and Sikh Gurudwara exists .As such this extreme north-east portion of the cantonment naturally situated as secular campus having all religion temples together. By enforcing mismatch development fundamental right of the secularism is being denied.
Recently it is heard that the eastate officer cantonment board has undertaken the development work for technical purposes in the open grounds of this religious campus , the extreme north east portion of the cantonment so that no pilgrims enter into or gather for religious deliberations. As per our knowledge this is the only place in India where all religion temples exist in a capus and surrounded to each other and secular deliberations held in open grounds since this land has given the world’s most secular socialist democrat Dr. Bheemrao Ambedkar . Planned development plan of this area needs to be revised to suit sacred entity of this religious portion.
I am being a Buddhist Monk can only look forward to the media only, which is the most believable part of the democracy, always raises voice of the voiceless, I belief the media will ask all parliamentarians to raise this issue in this parliament session only.
