LESSON 113 Atthi Raga Sutta Where There is Passion 16 12 2010  FREE ONLINE eNālandā Research and Practice UNIVERSITY

Awakeness Practices

All 84,000 Khandas As Found in the Pali Suttas

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.

Atthi Raga Sutta Where There is Passion

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1997–2010

Alternate translation: Nyanaponika

At Savatthi… “There are these four nutriments for the maintenance of beings who have come into being or for the support of those in search of a place to be born. Which four? Physical food, gross or refined; contact as the second, intellectual intention the third, and consciousness the fourth. These are the four nutriments for the maintenance of beings who have come into being or for the support of those in search of a place to be born.

“Where there is passion, delight, & craving for the nutriment of physical food, consciousness lands there and increases. Where consciousness lands and increases, there is the alighting of name-&-form. Where there is the alighting of name-&-form, there is the growth of fabrications. Where there is the growth of fabrications, there is the production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is the production of renewed becoming in the future, there is future birth, aging, & death, together, I tell you, with sorrow, affliction, & despair.

“Where there is passion, delight, & craving for the nutriment of contact…

“Where there is passion, delight, & craving for the nutriment of intellectual intention…

“Where there is passion, delight, & craving for the nutriment of consciousness, consciousness lands there and increases. Where consciousness lands and increases, there is the alighting of name-&-form. Where there is the alighting of name-&-form, there is the growth of fabrications. Where there is the growth of fabrications, there is the production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is the production of renewed becoming in the future, there is future birth, aging, & death, together, I tell you, with sorrow, affliction, & despair.

Just as — when there is dye, lac, yellow orpiment, indigo, or crimson — a dyer or painter would paint the picture of a woman or a man, complete in all its parts, on a well-polished panel or wall, or on a piece of cloth; in the same way, where there is passion, delight, & craving for the nutriment of physical food… contact… intellectual intention… consciousness, consciousness lands there and increases. Where consciousness lands and increases, there is the alighting of name-&-form. Where there is the alighting of name-&-form, there is the growth of fabrications. Where there is the growth of fabrications, there is the production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is the production of renewed becoming in the future, there is future birth, aging, & death, together, I tell you, with sorrow, affliction, & despair.

“Where there is no passion for the nutriment of physical food, where there is no delight, no craving, then consciousness does not land there or increase. Where consciousness does not land or increase, there is no alighting of name-&-form. Where there is no alighting of name-&-form, there is no growth of fabrications. Where there is no growth of fabrications, there is no production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is no production of renewed becoming in the future, there is no future birth, aging, & death. That, I tell you, has no sorrow, affliction, or despair.

“Where there is no passion for the nutriment of contact…

“Where there is no passion for the nutriment of intellectual intention…

“Where there is no passion for the nutriment of consciousness, where there is no delight, no craving, then consciousness does not land there or increase. Where consciousness does not land or increase, there is no alighting of name-&-form. Where there is no alighting of name-&-form, there is no growth of fabrications. Where there is no growth of fabrications, there is no production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is no production of renewed becoming in the future, there is no future birth, aging, & death. That, I tell you, has no sorrow, affliction, or despair.

Just as if there were a roofed house or a roofed hall having windows on the north, the south, or the east. When the sun rises, and a ray has entered by way of the window, where does it land?”

“On the western wall, lord.”

“And if there is no western wall, where does it land?”

“On the ground, lord.”

“And if there is no ground, where does it land?”

“On the water, lord.”

“And if there is no water, where does it land?”

“It does not land, lord.”

“In the same way, where there is no passion for the nutriment of physical food… contact… intellectual intention… consciousness, where there is no delight, no craving, then consciousness does not land there or increase. Where consciousness does not land or increase, there is no alighting of name-&-form. Where there is no alighting of name-&-form, there is no growth of fabrications. Where there is no growth of fabrications, there is no production of renewed becoming in the future. Where there is no production of renewed becoming in the future, there is no future birth, aging, & death. That, I tell you, has no sorrow, affliction, or despair.”

BUDDHA (EDUCATE)!               DHAMMA (MEDITATE)!              SANGHA (ORGANISE)!

WISDOM           IS            POWER

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.

GOOD GOVERNANCE

BSP sweeps panchayat chief polls

BSP sweeps panchayat chief polls

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/national/bsp-sweeps-panchayat-chief-polls-800

The ruling Bahujan Samaj Party has swept the panchayat chiefs’ elections by winning 55 seats — 23 of them unopposed — while the Samajwadi Party trailed behind with 10 seats.

The Congress and the Rashtriya Lok Dal could manage two seats each while the BJP lagged behind with just one seat. The results of Etah seat have been withheld on court orders. Results on the 70 seats of District Panchayat Chairmen were declared late on Sunday night.
The BSP won the elections in Jaunpur, Sonebhadra, Muzaffarnagar, Mirzapur, Badaun, Allahabad, Pratapgarh, Sant Kabir Nagar, Agra, Pilibhit, Aligarh, Ferozabad, Kannauj, Bareilly, Kanpur, Deoria, Azamgarh, Ambedkar Nagar, Moradabad, Basti, Ballia, Sant Ravidas Nagar, Saharanpur, Hardoi, Jhansi, Shahjahanpur, Hathras, Farukkhabad, Fatehpur, Barabanki, Sultanpur and Chitrakoot.
The Samajwadi Party won the elections in Ramabai Nagar (formerly Kanpur Dehat), Lalitpur, Faizabad, Bahraich, Ghazipur, Jalaun, Gonda, Aurraiya, Mainpuri and Etawah. The Congress victory was restricted to Rae Bareli and Amethi (now Chhatrapati Shahuji Maha-raj Nagar) while the BJP could win only the Maharajganj seat.


If the results of these elections are any indication, the main contests in the next assembly elections will be between the BSP and the SP while the Congress will, once again, emerge as a side player like the BJP.


Though the Congress, as well as the Samajwadi Party, claim that there has been a large scale misuse of government machinery by the ruling BSP in these elections, the fact remains that the BSP has emerged a winner all through.


The performance of the Congress in the polls amply demonstrates that the party has not expanded beyond Rae Bareli and Amethi, which are the constituencies of Mrs Sonia Gandhi and Mr Rahul Gandhi respectively.
The party’s level of preparedness or the next assembly elections is abysmally low and the Congress is unlikely to gain much if it continues with its laid-back attitude.

The BJP, meanwhile, is placed in a similar situation by ranking fourth in the polls. The party has to literally begin from a scratch if it wishes to register its presence in state politics in the next Assembly polls.
The BSP, on the other hand, has displayed its readiness in organisational matters once again. The party had earlier decided to stay away from the panchayat elections but later decided to contest the district panchayat chairmen’s elections when it found that several party leaders had got their relatives to contest the panchayat polls without informing the party high command.

HONEYLEAKS

Civil Resistance at White House Led by Veterans

December 15, 2010

Military veterans will lead a nonviolent act of civil resistance at the White House Thursday, Dec. 16, at 10:00 a.m. to protest the ongoing U.S. wars and occupations. Veterans For Peace organizers expect this to be the largest veteran-led resistance since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan began.

Among the scheduled participants: Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers; Mike Ferner, Veterans For Peace national president; Leah Bolger, Veterans For Peace vice president and retired Navy commander; Ray McGovern, retired CIA official; Coleen Rowley, FBI whistleblower; and Chris Hedges, author and former New York Times war correspondent.

WELCOME TO STOP THESE WARS

Take a Stand for Peace!
