Anodhi Sutta: Without Exception (1)
“In seeing six rewards, it’s enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of inconstancy with regard to all fabrications without exception. Which six? ‘All fabrications will appear as unstable. My mind will not delight in any world. My mind will rise above every world. My heart will be inclined to Unbinding. My fetters will go to their abandoning. I’ll be endowed with the foremost qualities of the contemplative life.’
“In seeing these six rewards, it’s enough for a monk to establish the perception of inconstancy with regard to all fabrications without exception.”
Anodhi Sutta: Without Exception (2)
“In seeing six rewards, it’s enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of stress with regard to all fabrications without exception. Which six? ‘The perception of disenchantment will be established within me with regard to all fabrications, like a murderer with a drawn sword. My mind will rise above every world. I’ll become one who sees peace in Unbinding. My obsessions will go to their destruction. I’ll be one who has completed his task. The Teacher will have been served with good will.’
“In seeing these six rewards, it’s enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of stress with regard to all fabrications without exception.”
Anodhi Sutta: Without Exception (3)
“In seeing six rewards, it’s enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of not-self with regard to all phenomena without exception. Which six? ‘I won’t be fashioned in connection with any world. My I-making will be stopped. My my-making will be stopped. I’ll be endowed with uncommon knowledge. I’ll become one who rightly sees cause, along with causally-originated phenomena.’
“In seeing these six rewards, it’s enough motivation for a monk to establish the perception of not-self with regard to all phenomena without exception.”
Sanyojana Sutta: Fetters
“There are these ten fetters. Which ten? Five lower fetters & five higher fetters. And which are the five lower fetters? Self-identity views, uncertainty, grasping at precepts & practices, sensual desire, & ill will. These are the five lower fetters. And which are the five higher fetters? Passion for form, passion for what is formless, conceit, restlessness, & ignorance. These are the five higher fetters. And these are the ten fetters.”
Looming large in this latest round-up from our resident Buddhist world-news newshound, Danny Fisher:
The G-20, the Nobel Peace Prize, U.S. foreign policy, freedom of the press, and China. Plus, a “gigantic” lost Buddha, and more.
Human rights concerns in both Burma and Tibet have continued to dominate headlines inside and outside of the Buddhist world of late. There is increased attention on Vietnam as well, between the conflict at Bat Nha Monastery and talkthis week that Thich Quang Do, patriarch of the government-banned Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, might win the Nobel Peace Prize. (In a surprise twist, the award went to U.S. President Barack Obama.) The situation in Sri Lanka, meanwhile, cries out for more international attention. There are interesting and delightful odds and ends from Afghanistan, the U.K., and elsewhere too.

Award-winning Japanese-Canadian writer and Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki was given “the last word” on the Canadian radio (CBC) talk show The Current on Monday. The show’s episode was about the reunification of families after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
The show featured a guest who discussed his long-distance search for lost family members, as well as a Japanese-Canadian elementary school teacher who had returned home to Japan to visit her parents just one day before the earthquake struck. Finally, the show closed with Ozeki, who offers a Buddhist perspective on the tragedy.
Venerable Bogoda Seelawimala, head priest of the London Buddhist Vihara, was been invited to attend the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. He will be the first Buddhist monk ever to attend a royal wedding in Britain.
Bogoda Seelawimala, the most senior Buddhist monk in Britain, was once visited by Prince Charles in 2005, after the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.
Bogoda Seelawimala took the opportunity to offer some sage advice to the soon-to-be newlyweds. He suggested that the key to a happy marriage is meditation: “Discuss your problems and meditate together each morning to empty the mind of all your problems.”

To mark the closing of the Grain of Emptiness exhibition, South Korean photographer Atta Kim will document the melting of a five-foot-tall ice sculpture of the Buddha. Visitors can participate in the work by collecting the melting water with the injunction that they use it to tend to new growth—for example, a new spring seedling.
The melting begins on Friday, March 25 at 6:00 p.m. during the K2 Lounge, and the museum will be open after hours so that it can be viewed through the night and into the weekend.
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.
BUDDHA (EDUCATE)! DHAMMA (MEDITATE)! SANGHA (ORGANISE)!

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.
