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.

(The House) On Fire

I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near in Jeta’s Grove, . Then a certain devata, in the far extreme of the night, her extreme radiance lighting up the entirety of Jeta’s Grove, went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, stood to one side. As she was standing there, she recited these verses in the Blessed One’s presence:

 When a house is on fire the vessel salvaged is the one that will be of use, not the one left there to burn. So when the world is on fire with aging and death, one should salvage [one’s wealth] by giving: what’s given is well salvaged. What’s given bears fruit as pleasure. What isn’t given does not: thieves take it away, or kings; it gets burnt by fire or lost. Then in the end one leaves the body together with one’s possessions. Knowing this, the intelligent man enjoys possessions & gives. Having enjoyed & given in line with his means, uncensured he goes to the heavenly state.

Aditta Sutta

(The House) On Fire




I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi in Jeta’s Grove, Anathapindika’s monastery. Then a certain devata, in the far extreme of the night, her extreme radiance lighting up the entirety of Jeta’s Grove, went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, stood to one side. As she was standing there, she recited these verses in the Blessed One’s presence:

When a house is on fire
the vessel salvaged
is the one that will be of use,
    not the one left there to burn.

So when the world is on fire
with aging and death,
one should salvage [one’s wealth] by giving:
    what’s given is well salvaged.

What’s given bears fruit as pleasure.
What isn’t given does not:
    thieves take it away, or kings;
    it gets burnt by fire or lost.

Then in the end
one leaves the body
together with one’s possessions.
Knowing this, the intelligent man
enjoys possessions & gives.

Having enjoyed & given
in line with his means,
    uncensured he goes
    to the heavenly state.

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

Maya drops minister on graft charges

LUCKNOW: Taking cognizance of the Uttar Pradesh Lokayukta report on corruption charges, Chief Minister Mayawati has dropped Homoeopathy and Religious Endowment Minister Rajesh Tripathi from her cabinet.

This is the first case in which Mayawati has removed a minister on corruption charges. In the past, ministers have lost their position mostly on account of murder charges. Official sources said that Governor B L Joshi has accepted the recommendation of the chief minister to remove Tripathi. Incidentally, no reason was cited for the sudden removal of Tripathi from the

cabinet.

Tripathi failed to act positively to the alternative offer from the Lokayukta to either step down from the cabinet post or relinquish chairmanship of a society that runs an illegal crematorium in Gorakhpur.

In a report submitted to the chief minister, Lokayukta Justice (Retd) N K Mehrotra said the minister, through his NGO-Mukti Path Sewa Sansthan, encroached on 1.219 hectares of Central Government’s Narcotics Department at Chillupar and collected money for cremating boides. The income from the shops constructed by him on the land was also went to the NGO’s account.
