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.
translated from the Pali by
Whence is there anger
in one without anger
tamed, calmed, living in tune,
released through right gnosis,
You make things worse
when you flare up
at someone who’s angry.
Whoever doesn’t flare up
at someone who’s angry
wins a battle
hard to win.
You live for the good of both
— your own, the other’s —
when, knowing the other’s provoked,
you mindfully grow calm.
When you work the cure of both
— your own, the other’s —
those who think you a fool
know nothing of Dhamma.
If anger arises,
If craving for savor,
If your mind runs loose
after sensual pleasures
& states of becoming,
quickly restrain it with mindfulness
as you would a bad ox
BUDDHA (EDUCATE)! DHAMMA (MEDITATE)! SANGHA (ORGANISE)!
WISDOM IS POWER
Awakened One Shows the Path to Attain Eternal 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.

Demand For Central Aid –
Assistance was also solicited from the Centre, after the Mumbai pattern, to deal with terrorist activities, but the Centre’s response has been negative here also. The Centre’s attitude has been the same about the naxal menace.
Decision was also taken to include certain castes belonging to backward classes in the satate such as Scheduled Castes such as 1) Kahar, Kasyap, 2) Kewat, Mallah, Nishad 3) Kumhar, Prajapati 4) Dheevar 5) Bind 6) Dhar, Rajdhar 7) Dheemar Batham 9) Turha 10) Goda 11) Manjhi 12) Macchua 13) Loniya 14) Noniya 15) Loniya-Chauhan 16) Dhankar, Pal etc. The Central govt. Has been approached several times to extend reservation to them but even here the Centre is silent. Here it is mentioned, especially, about the SP govt. Which had made only a sham effort (drama) to include these castes in the list of SCs. Consequently, neither these castes be included in the SC list nor could they avail themselves of the benefits earmarked for the backward classes.
It is among the priorities of BSP govt. to protect the life, limb and faithof the religious minority, especially Muslim community. Immedeately BSP got into power the first time in 1996, a separate ‘Uttar Pradesh Minority Welfare Department’ – a first time in the country for the uplift of minorities .BSP govt. as well, accorded the benefit of reservation in education and govt.services to the backward sections among the Muslims. For the first time, again, the ‘UP Madarasa Education Board’ was constituted by BSP govt. and so far 100 Madrasas have been brought on to grant-in-aid list. Many more schemes to enhance their educational and economic status have been introduced. An ‘Urdu Arabic and Persian University’ has also been established by the govt. in Lucknow but for the reason of financial constraints the govt. cannot do much more, though it feverently wishes to do so.
But when it comes to the govt. of the other parties the number in govt.services has come down from 33 to 1 or 1.5. The maximum number of Hindu-Muslim riots was during the congress rule. In fact during BJP rule behind the curtain of communal riots a climate of fear has been created for them. As far as SP party, on coming into power in UP it pocketed their votes but did nothing tangible to further their interests except wind-beggary.
On the other hand BSP govt. from the beginning of its rule took note of the uplift of SC/STs and other neglected classes, setting up separately three departments namely ‘Uttar Pradesh SC/ST Welfare Department’, ‘Uttar Pradesh Backward Class Welfare Department’ and ‘Uttar Pradesh Disabled Welfare Department’. Ministers were also appointed separately for these dept. And many historic steps were conceived and implemented for the good of these sections of the society.
Control of Price-rise-
For the galloping dearness throughout the country, it is not the state govt. but the Congress lead UPA government’s wrong economic and import-export policies which are entirely responsible. Along with Uttar Pradesh the people all over the country are suffering on account of the flawed policies of the Central govt. intended to benefit the capitalists and the rich. Not only this, tghe irresponsible statements of the hob’le ministers of the Centre from time to time have also fanned the fire of price-rise, giving full opportunity to unscrupulous ‘hoarders and profiteers’ to hike prices of food grains and other edibles. It would be, thus, more appropriate for the opposition parties to raise voice against the Central govt. instead of making uncalled for comments on the state govt.
All concerned officers in the state have been given strict instructions to keep the prices of edibles under control in the state and to take condign measures against hoarders and profiteers, a fact, known to all. A drive is on against hoarders profiteers. During the current financial year, ended December about 31,000 shops were raided and more than 120 FIRs registered. About 50 people were arrested. 0.4 thousand ration shops suspended and licences of about 2500 cancelled.
