Day 9 Upanisa Sutta -Transcendental Arising

June 16, 2022

The Upanisa sutta list the 23 links or the full series of Dependent Origination. Usually we just talk about the 12 links which is from Ignorance to Suffering. But the suffering link is the condition for the next 11 links to arise which finally culminates in Nibbana. In other words, it is suffering which leads to the desire to get off the wheel.

June 8, 2022

Apr 28, 2022 Majjhima Nikaya #111 Anupada Sutta - One by one as they occur.

In this Sutta Sariputta explains the Jhanas and the full Path leading to Nibbana and awakening. Each Jhana and its characteristics are explained and described. These are the "Ariya" jhanas and not concentration described in other sects which is one-pointed. Using the relax step and 6Rs ones attains a different kind of Jhana (state -in Pali) which progressively eliminates craving as one goes deeper. Finally there is no Tanha (craving) left and the mind comes to a stop. Then something amazing happens.
