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.

Maha Kassapa

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1998–2011

Alternate translation: Olendzki (excerpt)

One shouldn’t go about
surrounded, revered
by a company:
one gets distracted;
concentration
is hard to gain.
Fellowship with many people
is painful.
Seeing this,
one shouldn’t approve
of a company.
 
A sage shouldn’t visit families:
one gets distracted;
concentration
is hard to gain.
He’s eager & greedy for flavors,
whoever misses the goal
that brings bliss.
They know it’s a bog —
the reverence & veneration
of families —
a subtle arrow, hard to extract.
Offerings are hard for a worthless man
to let go.
 
* * *
 
Coming down from my dwelling place,
I entered the city for alms,
stood courteously next to a leper
eating his meal.
 
He, with his rotting hand,
tossed me a morsel of food,
and as the morsel was dropping,
a finger fell off
right there.
 
Sitting next to a wall,
I ate that morsel of food,
and neither while eating it,
nor having eaten,
did I feel
any disgust.
 
Whoever has mastered
left-over scraps for food,
smelly urine for medicine,
the foot of a tree for a dwelling,
cast-off rags for robes:
He is a man
of the four directions.
 
* * *
 
Where some are exhausted
climbing the mountain,
there
the Awakened One’s heir
— mindful, alert,
buoyed by his psychic power —
Kassapa climbs.
 
Returning from his alms round,
climbing the peak,
Kassapa does jhana
with no sustenance/clinging,
having abandoned terror
& fear.
 
Returning from his alms round,
climbing the peak,
Kassapa does jhana
with no sustenance/clinging,
unbound
among those who burn.
 
Returning from his alms round,
climbing the peak,
Kassapa does jhana
with no sustenance/clinging,
free of fermentation,
his duty
done.
 
Spread with garlands of vines,
places delighting the mind,
resounding with elephants,
appealing:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
The color of blue-dark clouds,
glistening,
cooled with the waters
of clear-flowing streams
covered with ladybugs:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
Like the peaks of blue-dark clouds,
like excellent peaked-roof buildings,
resounding with tuskers,
appealing:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
Their lovely surfaces wet with rain,
mountains frequented
by seers
& echoing
with peacocks:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
This is enough for me —
desiring to do jhana,
resolute, mindful;
enough for me —
desiring the goal,
resolute,
a monk;
enough for me —
desiring comfort,
resolute,
in training;
enough for me —
desiring my duty,
resolute,
Such.
 
Flax-flower blue,
like the sky
covered over with clouds;
filled with flocks
of various birds:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
Uncrowded
by householders,
frequented
by herds of deer
filled with flocks
of various birds:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
With clear waters &
massive boulders,
frequented by monkeys &
deer,
covered with moss &
water weeds:
those rocky crags
refresh me.
 
There is no such pleasure for me
in the music of a five-piece band
as there is when my mind
is at one,
seeing the Dhamma
aright.
 
* * *
 
One shouldn’t do lots of work,
should avoid people,
shouldn’t busy oneself.
He’s eager & greedy for flavors,
whoever misses the goal
that brings bliss.
 
One shouldn’t do lots of work,
should avoid
what doesn’t lead to the goal.
The body gets wearied,
fatigued.
Aching, one finds
no tranquillity.
 
* * *
 
Simply by flapping the mouth
one doesn’t see
even oneself.
One goes around stiff-
necked,
thinking, ‘I’m better
than they.’
 
Not better,
he thinks himself better,
the fool:
the wise don’t praise him,
the stiff-necked man.
 
But whoever isn’t stirred
by the modes of
‘I’m better,
not better.
I’m worse.
I’m like that’;
one who’s discerning,
who acts as he says,
well-centered
in virtues,
committed to
tranquillity of awareness, he
is the one
the wise
would praise.
 
One with no respect
for his fellows in the holy life,
is as far
from the true Dhamma
as the earth
is from the sky.
 
But those whose conscience
& fear of evil
are always rightly established: they
have flourished in the holy life.
For them
there’s no further becoming.
 
A monk conceited & vain,
even though clad
in a robe of cast-off rags,
like a monkey in a lion’s skin,
doesn’t shine because of it.
 
But a monk not conceited
or vain,
masterful,
his faculties restrained, shines
because of his robe of cast-off rags,
like a lion
in the cleft of a mountain.
 
* * *
 
These many devas,
powerful, prestigious
— 10,000 devas —
all of Brahma’s retinue,
stand with their hands over their hearts,
paying homage to Sariputta,
the Dhamma-general,
enlightened,
centered,
great master of jhana,
[saying:]
 
‘Homage to you, O thoroughbred man.
Homage to you, O superlative man —
of whom we have no direct knowledge
even of that
in dependence on which
you do jhana.
 
‘How very amazing:
the awakened ones’
very own deep range —
of which we have no direct knowledge,
though we have come
as hair-splitting archers.’
 
Seeing Sariputta,
a man worthy of worship,
worshipped by deva retinues,
Kappina
smiled.
 
* * *
 
As far as this buddha-field extends
— except for the great sage himself —
I’m the one
outstanding
in ascetic qualities.
There’s no one else
like me.
 
The Teacher has been served by me;
the Awakened One’s bidding,
done;
the heavy load,                         laid down;
the guide to becoming,            uprooted.
 
Neither to robe,
nor dwelling,
nor food
does he cling:
Gotama,
like a lotus unspotted
by water, inclining
to renunciation,            detached
from the three planes of becoming.[1]
 
He,
the great sage,
has the frames of reference
as his neck,
conviction
as hands,
discernment
as head.
The great master of jhana
he goes about
always unbound.

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.

Road map for Nalanda University discussed

Nalanda University Photo - biharsharif

University will start with seven schools, primarily in humanities

The Governing Board of the new Nalanda University on Monday laid down a road map to make the institution functional tentatively by 2013. The recruitment of faculty would be done one or two semesters before the first batch is enrolled so that they have a role in finalising the course structure.

The University will start with seven schools, primarily in humanities, but will include departments of Information Sciences and Technology, Business Management in Relation to Public Policy and Development and Ecology and Environment, in addition to Languages and Literature; Religion and Philosophy; Historical Studies, International Relations and Peace Studies; and Buddhist Studies.

FIRST MEETING

This was the first meeting of the Governing Board, which was earlier functioning as the Nalanda Mentor Group, and was attended by Gopa Sabharwal, who has just been appointed as the first Vice-Chancellor of the Nalanda University, to be set up just about 10 km away from the historic location of the Nalanda university in Bihar.

“We will try and enrol the students as soon as possible and as soon as infrastructure comes up at the site,'’ Amartya Sen, chairperson of the Governing Board told journalists after the meeting. The meeting also discussed the statutes that would govern the University and the institutions relations with other universities. He said the focus at the beginning would be only on humanities due to the less cost involved. As we expand, we will include other subjects as well, he explained.

“In keeping with the extraordinary traditions of the historic University, we will develop the University as only as a secular institution but where religion will also be included,'’ Professor Sen said clarifying that the university was an academic venture and not a diplomatic exercise just because several Asian countries had contributed for its development.

Foreign Minister of Singapore George Yeo – who is also on the Governing Board – said the entire issue of setting up the University is an “exciting exercise” and the institution would help in the over all development of the region which is backward. He also sought an international airport near Nalanda and said the Buddhist tourist circuit would get a boost once the institution became functional.

GLOBAL TENDERS

Announcing that the Governing Board had decided to go for global tenders, Dr. Sabharwal said 446 acres of land for the project had been acquired for the purpose. “Our aim would be to develop a state-of-the-art university,'’ she explained adding that history showed that 200 villages around the old Nalanda University supported the institution and now was the time to do the reverse as the University would help in the development of these villages that would be traced and identified during the process of “interaction'’ with the region.
