Verses 87 & 88: The man of wisdom,
leaving the home of craving and having Nibbana as his goal, should give up
dark, evil ways and cultivate pure, good ones. He should seek great delight
in solitude, detachment and Nibbana, which an ordinary man finds so difficult
to enjoy. He should also give up sensual pleasures, and clinging to nothing,
should cleanse himself of all impurities of the mind.

Verse 89: Those, with mind well-developed in
the seven Factors of Enlightenment (bojjhanga), having rid themselves of all
craving, rejoice in their abandonment of attachment. Such men, with all moral
intoxicants eradicated, and powerful (with the light of Arahatta Magganana),
have realized Nibbana in this world (i.e., with Khandha aggregates

1. oka anakamagamma; lit., having
gone from home to the homeless. In this context interpreted as leaving the
seat of craving and having Nibbana as a goal.

2. viveke: solitude, detachment,

3. akincano: lit., having nothing;
clinging to nothing. (The term kincana may include any of the kilesas
or defilements such as passion, ill will, ignorance, etc; it also means
clinging or attachment to the world.)

4. cittaklesehi: citta kilesa:
impurities of the mind.

5. sambodhiyangesu: sambojjhanga: the
Factors of Enlightenment or requisites for attaining Magga Insight.

passions are extinguished; an arahat.

7. jutimanta: one endowed with the
power of Arahatta Magganana.

8. te loke parinibbuta: the
realization of Nibbana in the realm of the five aggregates (khandhas), or in
other words, in this world. But according to the Commentary, in this context,
both Sa-upadisesa and Anupadisesa Nibbana are meant. Sa-upadisesa
or Kilesa Nibbana is Nibbana with groups of existence or khandhas
remaining; it is realized by an arahat on the attainment of arahatship. Anupadisesa
or Khandha Nibbana is Nibbana without groups of existence or khandhas
remaining. It takes place on the death of an arahat.

The Story of Five Hundred Visiting Bhikkhus

While residing at the Jetavana monastery,
the Buddha uttered Verses (87), (88) and (89) of this book, with reference to
five hundred visiting bhikkhus.

Five hundred bhikkhus who had spent the
vassa in Kosala came to pay homage to the Buddha at the Jetavana monastery,
at the end of the vassa.

The Buddha uttered
the following three verses to suit their various temperaments:

Verses 87 & 88: The man of wisdom,
leaving the home of craving and having Nibbana as his goal, should give up
dark, evil ways and cultivate pure, good ones. He should seek great delight
in solitude, detachment and Nibbana, which an ordinary man finds so
difficult to enjoy. He should also give up sensual pleasures, and clinging
to nothing, should cleanse himself of all impurities of the mind.


Verse 89: Those, with mind well-developed
in the seven Factors of Enlightenment (bojjhanga), having rid themselves of
all craving, rejoice in their abandonment of attachment. Such men, with all
moral intoxicants eradicated, and powerful (with the light of Arahatta
Magganana), have realized Nibbana in this world (i.e., with Khandha
aggregates remaining).

No action against Nasimuddin Siddiqui:
UP govt
The UP government on Monday told the state Lokayukta that a CBI probe as
recommended by it against its minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui cannot be initiated
as the charges made against him were not related to any of his decisions or
approvals taken during his tenure as minister.

“It is not possible to take action as per the law on the recommendations
of the Lokayukta as there is no charge against Naseemuddin on approvals granted
by him or any of his decisions and works as a minister,” an official
spokesperson said here.

These are some of the VIEWS Papers and Idea medias (Black and blind paid views reporters/scribes/journalists
searching for black cat in a dark room which is not there) are publishing false
and bogus views to please Congress, BJP, SP bosses forgetting that there are
educated people belonging to sarvajan samaj including SC/ST/OBC/Minorities/Poor
upper caste  who have already stoped
buying these views. Their comments are not published agsinst their views. As long
as they are paid they are not bothered about their sales as they are paid by
their bosses. They are forgetting that there is a very powerful media in this
country. Their prediction that Ms Mayawati will get 303 seats will come true
just like in 2007 where the predictions of the above views papers and the ideas
of the medias failed.

20 Painkillers in Your Kitchen 
Make muscle pain a memory with ginger 
Danish researchers asked achy people to jazz up their diets with
ginger, it eased muscle and joint pain, swelling and stiffness for up to
63 percent of them within two months. Experts credit ginger’s potent
compounds called gingerols, which prevent the production of
pain-triggering hormones. The study-recommended dose: Add at least 1
teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger to meals

Cure a toothache with cloves

a toothache and can’t get to the dentist? Gently chewing on a clove can
ease tooth pain and gum inflammation for two hours straight, say UCLA
researchers. Experts point to a natural compound in cloves called
eugenol, a powerful, natural anesthetic. Bonus: Sprinkling a ¼ teaspoon
of ground cloves on meals daily may also protect your ticker. Scientists
say this simple action helps stabilize blood sugar, plus dampen
production of artery-clogging cholesterol in as little as three weeks.
Heal heartburn with cider vinegar 
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 8 ounces of water before
every meal, and experts say you could shut down painful bouts of
heartburn in as little as 24 hours. “Cider vinegar is rich in malic and
tartaric acids, powerful digestive aids that speed the breakdown of fats
and proteins so your stomach can empty quickly, before food washes up
into the esophagus, triggering heartburn pain,” explains Joseph Brasco,
M.D., a gastroenterologist at the Center for Colon and Digestive
Diseases in Huntsville, AL.

Erase earaches with garlic 
ear infections drive millions of Americans to doctors’ offices every
year. To cure one fast, just place two drops of warm garlic oil into
your aching ear twice daily for five days. This simple treatment can
clear up ear infections faster than prescription meds, say experts at
the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Scientists say garlic’s
active ingredients (germanium, selenium, and sulfur compounds) are
naturally toxic to dozens of different pain-causing bacteria. To whip up
your own garlic oil gently simmer three cloves of crushed garlic in a
half a cup of extra virgin olive oil for two minutes, strain, then
refrigerate for up to two weeks, suggests Teresa Graedon, Ph.D.,
co-author of the book, Best Choices From The People’s Pharmacy. For an optimal experience, warm this mix slightly before using so the liquid will feel soothing in your ear canal.
Chase away joint and headache pain with cherries 
studies show that at least one in four women is struggling with
arthritis, gout or chronic headaches. If you’re one of them, a daily
bowl of cherries could ease your ache, without the stomach upset so
often triggered by today’s painkillers, say researchers at East Lansing
’s Michigan State University . Their research reveals that anthocyanins,
the compounds that give cherries their brilliant red color, are
anti-inflammatories 10 times stronger than ibuprofen and aspirin.
“Anthocyanins help shut down the powerful enzymes that kick-start tissue
inflammation, so they can prevent, as well as treat, many different
kinds of pain,” explains Muraleedharan Nair, Ph.D., professor of food
science at Michigan State University . His advice: Enjoy 20 cherries
(fresh, frozen or dried) daily, then continue until your pain
Prevent PMS with yogurt 
to 80 percent of women will struggle with premenstrual syndrome and its
uncomfortable symptoms, report Yale researchers. The reason: Their
nervous systems are sensitive to the ups and downs in estrogen and
progesterone that occur naturally every month. But snacking on 2 cups of
yogurt a day can slash these symptoms by 48 percent, say researchers at
New York ’s Columbia University. “Yogurt is rich in calcium, a mineral
that naturally calms the nervous system, preventing painful symptoms
even when hormones are in flux,” explains Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a
professor of gynecology at Yale University.

Tame chronic pain with turmeric 
show turmeric, a popular East Indian spice, is actually three times
more effective at easing pain than aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen, plus
it can help relieve chronic pain for 50 percent of people struggling
with arthritis and even fibromyalgia, according to Cornell researchers.
That’s because turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, naturally shuts
down cyclooxygenase 2, an enzyme that churns out a stream of
pain-producing hormones, explains nutrition researcher Julian Whitaker,
M.D. and author of the book,Reversing Diabetes. The study-recommended dose: Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of this spice daily onto any rice, poultry, meat or vegetable dish.

End endometrial pain with oats 
ticket to soothing endometriosis pain could be a daily bowl of oatmeal.
Endometriosis occurs when little bits of the uterine lining detach and
grow outside of the uterus. Experts say these migrating cells can turn
menstruation into a misery, causing so much inflammation that they
trigger severe cramping during your period, plus a heavy ache that drags
on all month long. Fortunately, scientists say opting for a diet rich
in oats can help reduce endometrial pain for up to 60 percent of women
within six months. That’s because oats don’t contain gluten, a
trouble-making protein that triggers inflammation in many women, making
endometriosis difficult to bear, explains Peter Green, M.D., professor
of medicine at Colombia University

Soothe foot pain with salt 
say at least six million Americans develop painful ingrown toenails
each year. But regularly soaking ingrown nails in warm salt water baths
can cure these painful infections within four days, say scientists at
California ’s Stanford University . The salt in the mix naturally nixes
inflammation, plus it’s anti-bacterial, so it quickly destroys the germs
that cause swelling and pain. Just mix 1 teaspoon of salt into each cup
of water, heat to the warmest temperature that you can comfortably
stand, and then soak the affected foot area for 20 minutes twice daily,
until your infection subsides.

Prevent digestive upsets with pineapple 
gas? One cup of fresh pineapple daily can cut painful bloating within
72 hours, say researchers at California ’s Stanford University . That’s
because pineapple is natually packed with proteolytic enzymes, digestive
aids that help speed the breakdown of pain-causing proteins in the
stomach and small intestine, say USDA researchers.

Relax painful muscles with peppermint 
from tight, sore muscles? Stubborn knots can hang around for months if
they aren’t properly treated, says naturopath Mark Stengler, N.D.,
author of the book, The Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies.
His advice: Three times each week, soak in a warm tub scented with 10
drops of peppermint oil. The warm water will relax your muscles, while
the peppermint oil will naturally soothe your nerves — a combo that can
ease muscle cramping 25 percent more effectively than over-the-counter
painkillers, and cut the frequency of future flare-ups in half, says
Give your back some TLC with grapes 
an achy back? Grapes could be the ticket to a speedy recovery. Recent
studies at Ohio State University suggest eating a heaping cup of grapes
daily can relax tight blood vessels, significantly improving blood flow
to damaged back tissues (and often within three hours of enjoying the
first bowl). That’s great news because your back’s vertebrae and
shock-absorbing discs are completely dependent on nearby blood vessels
to bring them healing nutrients and oxygen, so improving blood flow is
essential for healing damaged back tissue, says Stengler.

Wash away pain injuries with water 
it’s your feet, your knees or your shoulders that are throbbing,
experts at New York ’s Manhattan College , say you could kick-start your
recovery in one week just by drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water
daily. Why? Experts say water dilutes, and then helps flush out,
histamine, a pain-triggering compound produced by injured tissues. “Plus
water is a key building block of the cartilage that cushions the ends
of your bones, your joints’ lubricating fluid, and the soft discs in
your spine,” adds Susan M. Kleiner, Ph.D., author of the book,
The Good Mood Diet.
“And when these tissues are well-hydrated, they can move and glide over
each other without causing pain.” One caveat: Be sure to measure your
drinking glasses to find out how large they really are before you start
sipping, she says. Today’s juice glasses often hold more than 12 ounces,
which means five servings could be enough to meet your daily
Heal sinus problems with horseradish 
studies show sinusitis is the nation’s number one chronic health
problem. And this condition doesn’t just spur congestion and facial
pain, it also makes sufferers six times more likely to feel achy
all-over. Horseradish to the rescue! According to German researchers,
this eye-watering condiment naturally revs up blood flow to the sinus
cavities, helping to open and drain clogged sinuses and heal sinus
infections more quickly than decongestant sprays do. The
study-recommended dose: One teaspoon twice daily (either on its own, or
used as a sandwich or meat topping) until symptoms clear.

Beat bladder infections with blueberries 
1 cup of blueberries daily, whether you opt for them fresh, frozen or
in juice form, can cut your risk of a urinary tract infection (UTIs) by
60 percent, according to researchers at New Jersey’s Rutgers University.
That’s because blueberries are loaded with tannins, plant compounds
that wrap around problem-causing bacteria in the bladder, so they can’t
get a toehold and create an infection, explains Amy Howell, Ph.D. a
scientist at Rutgers University .

Heal mouth sores with honey 
painful canker and cold sores with unpasteurized honey four times daily
until these skin woes disappear, and they’ll heal 43 percent faster
than if you use a prescription cream, say researchers at the Dubai
Specialized Medical Center in the United Arab Emirates . Raw honey’s
natural enzymes zap inflammation, destroy invading viruses and speed the
healing of damaged tissues, say the study authors.

Fight breast pain with flax 
one recent study, adding 3 tablespoons of ground flax to their daily
diet eased breast soreness for one in three women within 12 weeks.
Scientists credit flax’s phytoestrogens, natural plant compounds that
prevent the estrogen spikes that can trigger breast pain. More good
news: You don’t have to be a master baker to sneak this healthy seed
into your diet. Just sprinkle ground flax on oatmeal, yogurt, applesauce
or add it to smoothies and veggie dips.

Cure migraines with coffee 
to migraines? Try muscling-up your painkiller with a coffee chaser.
Whatever over-the-counter pain med you prefer, researchers at the
National Headache Foundation say washing it down with a strong 12- ounce
cup of coffee will boost the effectiveness of your medication by 40
percent or more. Experts say caffeine stimulates the stomach lining to
absorb painkillers more quickly and more effectively.
Tame leg cramps with tomato juice 
least one in five people regularly struggle with leg cramps. The
culprit? Potassium deficiencies, which occur when this mineral is
flushed out by diuretics, caffeinated beverages or heavy perspiration
during exercise. But sip 10 ounces of potassium-rich tomato juice daily
and you’ll not only speed your recovery, you’ll reduce your risk of
painful cramp flare-ups in as little as 10 days, say UCLA researchers.
