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.
Silabbata Sutta: Precept & Practice
translated from the Pali by
Then Ven. Ananda went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side. As he was sitting there, the Blessed One said to him, “Ananda, every precept & practice, every life, every holy life that is followed as of essential worth: is every one of them fruitful?”
“Lord, that is not [to be answered] with a categorical answer.”
“In that case, Ananda, give an analytical answer.”
“When by following a life of precept & practice, a life, a holy life that is followed as of essential worth one’s unskillful mental qualities increase while one’s skillful mental qualities decline: that sort of precept & practice, life, holy life that is followed as of essential worth is fruitless. But when by following a life of precept & practice, a life, a holy life that is followed as of essential worth one’s unskillful mental qualities decline while one’s skillful mental qualities increase: that sort of precept & practice, life, holy life that is followed as of essential worth is fruitful.”
That is what Ven. Ananda said, and the Teacher approved. Then Ven. Ananda, [realizing,] “The Teacher approves of me,” got up from his seat and, having bowed down to the Blessed One and circumambulating him, left.
Then not long after Ven. Ananda had left, the Blessed One said to the monks, “Monks, Ananda is still in training, but it would not be easy to find his equal in discernment.”

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.

C.M. orders suspension of police SI, officiating SHO, CO, Additional SP and Jailor found guilty in Banda case
State Government requests Hon’ble Court to hear this case through fast track court
Opposition parties should desist from levelling false allegations against State Government
My Government will force officers to mend their ways at all costs
Lucknow : 20 January 2011
Taking punitive action against the guilty police personnel
of the Banda case, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh
Ms. Mayawati ji ordered immediate suspension of investigating
officer of the case SI Sri Radhey Shyam Shukla and officiating
SHO Sri Abdul Jabbar for delay and carelessness in the
investigation work. Likewise, the Atarra CO Sri Rajendra Yadav
and Additional SP of Banda Sri Lala Ram have also been
suspended for showing poor and inept supervision of
investigation. Besides, the Banda Jailor has also been
suspended for not listening to the points raised by his sub-
ordinate and not reporting the facts to the senior officers.
Departmental action has also been initiated against them.
Referring to the role of the Banda SP in this case, the
Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that he was not found guilty in the
inquiry. She said that the special DGP law and order Mr. Brij Lal
has been directed to assess the situation so that cases like
Banda and Kanpur were not repeated. He has also been
directed to send his recommendations to the Government at the
earliest. Besides, the State Government has also requested
Hon’ble Court to hear this case through fast track court.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji was addressing media at her
official residence 5 Kalidas Marg here today. She said that her
government was committed to ensure justice for the affected
people and it never pardoned the guilty nor it protected them.
She said that law breakers would not be spared in her regime
no matter whosoever they were. Referring to the cases like
Banda and Kanpur and other cases as well, she said that she
was forced to take punitive action against officers who were
unable to perform their duties with honesty.
Hon’ble Chief Minister said that for the present state of
things, the previous governments were actually responsible as
they misused the Government machinery for their vested
interests and made it careless and corrupt. She said that her
government was suffering because of this reason. She said that
her government would force the officers to mend their ways at
all costs. She said that this may take some time as this malaise
had deep roots. Besides, stringent action would be taken
against those officers who had links with opposition parties and
were trying to malign the image of the State Government, if
evidence was found against them.
Hon’ble Chief Minister ji has asked the leaders of
opposition parties that they should stop levelling false and
baseless allegations against the State Government and extend
their co-operation, so that the law and order could be improved
and the pace of development could be accelerated and the
State could become prosperous. Giving sharp reaction over the
useless statements being issued by opposition parties specially
the Congress party over the recent incidents which took place in
the State, she said that it was an effort to mislead the people.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister said that despite the stringent
action taken by the state government against the criminals
involved in these incidents, it was unfortunate that baseless
allegations had been put on her government. She said that her
government had not hesitated in taking action accordance to
law against party MLAs, Ministers and an MP who took law in
their hands. She said that nobody would be permitted to play
with the law. She said that land development and water
resources Minister Mr. Ashok Kumar Dohre was sacked
yesterday because continuous complaints were being received
regarding unnecessary pressure on officers by him.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister said that so far as the question
of false statements of opposition leaders regarding Banda and
Kanpur incidents is concerned, her government had taken it
seriously and ordered inquiry by CB-CID into Banda case. On
getting the preliminary report of CB-CID, government took
harsh steps and lodged FIR against MLA Purushottam Naresh
Dwivedi and three others. It had directed the officers to take
action in accordance with law and arrests of culprits. Besides,
she had ordered to release the victim girl immediately on 15
January, 2011 on getting the CB-CID report, because the
allegations put on the girl were not found true in inquiry report.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister said that directives had been
given for taking stringent action against the guilty policemen
and CB-CID inquiry in this regard. Besides, Principal Secretary
(Home) was directed to provide proper security to victim girl.
She said that charge-sheet was filed by the police in 15 days
against the MLA Shekhar Tiwari accused of murder of an
engineer in Auraiyya and Mr. Tiwari is still in jail. Similarly, the
then Minister Mr. Anand Sen Yadav was arrested and sent to jail
after taking his resignation, when his name came in light in
rape case. Mr. Yadav is still in jail. MLA Mr. Bhagwan Sharma
alias Guddu Pandit was also arrested owing to his involvement
in criminal incident. CB-CID has filed the charge-sheet in the
Court in Banda case today.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister said that on getting the
information regarding the facts in Divya case, she took it
seriously and ordered CB-CID inquiry into the whole case. In-
charge inspector was suspended with immediate effect after he
was found guilty in CB-CID inquiry report. Section-344 and 218
IPC were registered and CB-CID inquiry was ordered. Besides,
ASP (rural) and CO were also suspended for slackness and
indifferent approach in this case.
