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.

Don’t associate with lowly qualities.

Don’t consort with heedlessness.

Don’t associate with wrong views.

Don’t busy yourself with the world.

168-169

Get up! Don’t be heedless.

Live the Dhamma well.

One who lives the Dhamma

sleeps with ease

in this world & the next.

Live the Dhamma well.

Don’t live it badly.

One who lives the Dhamma

sleeps with ease

in this world & the next.

See it  as a bubble,

see it  as a mirage:

one who regards the world this way

the King of Death doesn’t see.

171

Come look at this world

all decked out

like a royal chariot,

where fools plunge in,

while those who know

don’t cling.

172-173The Diligent Illumine The World

< ?xml:namespace prefix = v ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml” />

Who once was heedless,

but later is not,

brightens the world

like the moon set free from a cloud.

Explanation: An individual may have been deluded in the past. But later corrects his thinking and becomes a disillusioned person. He, therefor, is like the moon that has come out from behind a dark cloud; thus, he illuminates the world.

13 (5) The Story of Venerable Sammunjani (Verse 172)

While residing at the Jetavana Monastery, the Buddha spoke this Verse, with reference to Venerable Sammunjani.

Venerable Sammunjani spent most of his time sweeping the precincts of the monastery At that time, Venerable Revata was also staying at the monastery: unlike Sammunjani, Venerable Revata spent most of his time in meditation or deep mental absorption. Seeing Venerable Revata’s behaviour, Venerable Sammunjani thought the other monk was just idling away his time. Thus, one day Sammunjani went to Venerable Revata and said to him, “You are being very lazy, living on the food offered out of faith and generosity: don’t you think you should sometimes sweep the floor or the compound or some other place?” To him, Venerable Revata replied, “Friend, a monk should not spend all his time sweeping. He should sweep early in the morning, then go out on the alms-round. After the meal, contemplating his body he should try to perceive the true nature of the aggregates, or else, recite the texts until nightfall. Then he can do the sweeping again if he so wishes.” Venerable Sammunjani strictly followed the advice given by Venerable Revata and soon attained arahatship.

Other monks noticed some rubbish piling up in the compound and they asked Sammunjani why he was not sweeping as much as he used to, and he replied, “When I was not mindful, I was all the time sweeping: but now I am no longer unmindful.” When the monks heard his reply they were skeptical: so they went to the Buddha and said, “Venerable! Venerable Sammunjani falsely claims himself to be an arahat: he is telling lies.” To them the Buddha said, “Sammunjani has indeed attained arahatship: he is telling the truth.”

Explanatory Translation (Verse 172)

Yo pubbe pamajjitva ca so paccha nappamajjati so
abbha mutto candima iva imam lokam pabhaseti

Yo: if some one; pubbe: previously; pamajjitva: having been deluded; ca so: he here too; paccha: later on; nappamajjati: becomes disillusioned; so: he; abbha mutto: released from dark cloud; candima iva: like the moon; imam lokam: this world; pabhaseti: illumines

An individual may have been deluded in the past. But later on corrects his thinking and becomes a disillusioned person. He, therefore, is like the moon that has come out from behind a dark cloud: thus, he illumines the world.

Commentary

abbha mutto candima iva: like the moon that is released from the dark clouds. This image is used about those who have attained higher states of spirituality. The moon shines in all its brightness when it escapes dark clouds. When truth-seekers escape the bonds of worldli-ness, they, too, shine forth. The escape from the dark clouds of worldly hindrances takes place in several stages. When the jhanas are developed by temporarily removing the obscurants (Nivarana) the mind is so purified that it resembles a polished mirror, where everything is clearly reflected in true perspective.

Discipline (sila) regulates words and deeds: composure (samadhi) calms the mind: but it is insight (panna) the third and the final stage, that enables the aspirant to sainthood to eradicate wholly the defilements removed temporarily by samadhi. At the outset, he cultivates purity of vision (ditthi visuddhi) in order to see things as they truly are. With calmed mind he analyses and examines his experience. This searching examination shows what he has called ‘I personality, to be merely an impersonal process of psycho-physical activity.

Having thus gained a correct view of the real nature of this so-called being, freed from the false notion of a permanent soul, he searches for the causes of this ego.

Thereupon, he contemplates the truth that all constructs are transitory (anicca), painful (dukkha), and impersonal (anatta). Wherever he turns his eyes he sees naught but these three characteristics standing out in bold relief. He realizes that life is a mere flux conditioned by internal and external causes. Nowhere does he find any genuine happiness, because everything is fleeting.

His evil-done deed

is replaced with skillfulness:

he brightens the world

like the moon set free from a cloud.

174

Blinded this world —

how few here see clearly!

Just as birds who’ve escaped

from a net are

few, few

are the people

who make it to heaven.

175

Swans fly the path of the sun;

those with the power fly through space;

the enlightened flee from the world,

having defeated the armies of Mara.

176

The person who tells a lie,

who transgresses in this one thing,

transcending concern for the world beyond:

there’s no evil

he might not do.

177

No misers go

to the world of the devas.

Those who don’t praise giving

are fools.

The enlightened

express their approval for giving

and so find ease

in the world beyond.

178

Sole dominion over the earth,

going to heaven,

lordship over all worlds:

the fruit of stream-entry

excels them.

Whoso was heedless formerly



but later lives with heedfulness



illuminates all this world



as moon when free from clouds.

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.

Necessary Government Order in this connection has been issued to

crime cases without any fear had been created and success in checking these crimes had been achieved. He said that police is taking action over the registered crime cases in speedy manner and successful prosecution against the culprits was emphasised.

VOICE OF SARVAJAN HONEYLEAKS

Fwd: census 2011

Dear All,

Please note important information about entering religion as Buddhist and Caste as SC in the forthcoming CENSUS 2011 to be conducted from 9th Feb. Language expert can translate these information in local language for other member’s of SC community.

Wider publicity is very much essential so that our members of community correctly  enter their caste and religion in census. There is a conspiracy to reduce reservation to SC/ST as happened in Maharashtra. This small piece of information will ensure that every one is counted correctly, no one is missed out and our reservation is not reduced.

Kindly read and forward power-point.
