Awakeness
Practices

All 84,000
Khandas As Found in the Pali Suttas


Traditionally
there are 84,000 Dhamma Doors - 84,000 ways to get Awakened. May be so;
certainly the Buddha taught a large number of practices that lead to get
Awakened. 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 banawanas, containing 737,000
stanzas, and 29,368,000 separate letters.

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

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.

Sudatta Sutta: About Sudatta (Anathapindika)

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1999–2011

Translator’s note

Many
discourses are set in Jeta’s Grove, the monastery donated by Anathapindika.
Here we learn how Anathapindika first met the Buddha. A dramatic point in the
story revolves around the fact that most people knew of him by his epithet —
Anathapindika means “Almsgiver to those without protection” — rather
than by his given name. Thus he is surprised to hear the Buddha, at their first
meeting, address him correctly.

The
Cullavagga (VI) gives this same story in greater detail and adds more
incidents: After reciting the verse with which this discourse ends, the Buddha
gives Anathapindika a step-by-step teaching, culminating in an explanation of
the four noble truths. At the end of the teaching, Anathapindika attains
stream-entry. He then returns home to Savatthi, purchases a grove from Prince
Jeta at immense price, and establishes a monastery for the Buddha and the
Sangha. There, according to the commentaries, the Buddha spent more rains
retreats than at any other monastery.

I have
heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Rajagaha
in the Cool Grove. Now at that time Anathapindika the householder had arrived
in Rajagaha on some business. He heard, “An Awakened One, they say, has
appeared in the world,” and he wanted to go right then to see the Blessed
One. Then the thought occurred to him, “Today is not the proper time to go
to see the Blessed One. Tomorrow I will go to see the Blessed One at the proper
time.” With his mindfulness immersed in the Awakened One he lay down to
sleep. Three times he got up during the night, thinking it was light. Then he
went to the gate to the charnel ground. Non-human beings opened the gate.

When
Anathapindika the householder had left the city, the light vanished and
darkness appeared. Fear, terror, & horripilation arose, and because of that
he wanted to turn back. Then Sivaka the yakkha-spirit,
invisible, proclaimed:

A hundred elephants, a hundred horses, a hundred
mule-drawn carts, a hundred-thousand maidens adorned with jewels & earrings
aren’t worth one-sixteenth of one step forward. Go forward, householder! Go
forward, householder! Going forward is better for you, not back!

The
darkness then vanished for Anathapindika and the light appeared. The fear,
terror, & horripilation he had felt subsided.

For a
second time… a third time, the light vanished and darkness appeared. Fear,
terror, & horripilation arose, and because of that Anathapindika wanted to
turn back. Then for a third time, Sivaka the yakkha-spirit, invisible, proclaimed:

A hundred elephants, a hundred horses, a hundred
mule-drawn carts, a hundred-thousand maidens adorned with jewels & earrings
aren’t worth one-sixteenth of one step forward. Go forward, householder! Go
forward, householder! Going forward is better for you, not back!

The
darkness then vanished for Anathapindika and the light appeared. The fear,
terror, & horripilation he had felt subsided.

So
Anathapindika went to the Cool Grove. Now at that time, the Blessed One —
having gotten up as the night was ending — was pacing back & forth in the
open air. He saw Anathapindika the householder coming from afar. On seeing him,
he got down from his meditation path and sat on a seat made ready. As he was
sitting there he said to Anathapindika, “Come, Sudatta.”

Then
Anathapindika, [thinking,] “The Blessed One is calling me by my given
name!” threw himself down right there at the Blessed One’s feet and said
to him, “Lord, I hope the Blessed One has slept in ease.”

[The
Buddha:]

Always, always, he sleeps in ease: the brahman totally unbound,
who doesn’t adhere to sensual pleasures, who’s without acquisitions &
cooled. Having cut all ties & subdued fear in the heart, calmed, he sleeps
in ease, having reached peace of awareness.

The Pristine Environment of Sankasia

 

Today Sankasia
is the one of the most remote and undeveloped

Buddhist
shrines in India, a far cry from the Buddha’s time when it

was called
‘City of Sankasia’. When India’s
Prime Minister Nehru

was asked by
some Japanese visitors in 1961, which was the poorest

Buddhist shrine
in India, he promptly replied: “Sankasia!” The

situation has
improved slightly since
Ms Mayawati,
a Buddhist

laywoman became
Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh in May 2007

again after a
brief term in 2002-03. Now the roads are getting better

and a new hotel
is being built to accommodate tourists in Sankasia.

 

The author
first visited Sankasia ten years ago. Impressed by its

pristine environment, he decided to lead
Malaysian pilgrims there

every
pilgrimage despite initial objections from certain members. In

the beginning,
the trip would take the whole day and we would leave

Sankasia by
evening and travel to Kanpur or Lucknow arriving at the

hotel well
after midnight. When the pilgrims’ hostel in the Burmese

Temple was
completed in 2004,
Sayadaw U 5anda invited
us to

stay overnight
there instead of leaving in the evening. It proved to be

very pleasant
as we got the opportunity to know Sayadaw U Nanda

and benefit
from his vast knowledge of the history of Sankasia. Now

more pilgrims will get to know the rich heritage of
Sankasia.

Buddhist Principles


The world is filled
with Dukkha; its cause is desire, selfishness, the power of the illusory self.


To remove an
unwanted effect it is commonsense to remove the cause. The ending of dukkha,therefore,
is achieved by the elimination of desire. But how? By treading a Way, a Middle
Way between all extremes. So taught the All-Awakened One, and he later
described the Way as an eightfold Wa, for although perfection in any one step
is perfection in all, yet there is an orderly sequence in the task of
self-perfection: the higher stages of mind-development, for example, must wait,
or should wait, for the purification of motive lest, when achieved, they are
used to selfish ends.
