Cause Of Tale Phobia, Sutta Phobia, Abhidhamma Phobia, Commentary Phobia, Psychic Ability Phobia

(Book, by professor P.A. Payutto (former Invited lecturer of harvard university), that have a better reference more than this article, is avariable in thai: )

First to understand: I never have an experience in psychic ability. I never see ghost before.

We need to know and understand them, that more than a thousand years, the westerns are injure by credulity, because of domination by their religious, that used tale as tools to dominated their people minds.

So, nowadays, their culture teaching them to anti everything, that they thinking 'it is the same of my ancient religious', before deep learned.


How do you, buddhist, feel, that if moreover a thousand year, your family is killed/imprison, because of opinions differ? Such as early scientists (Galileo Galilei), gays (2016 Orlando nightclub shooting), etc.

The buddhist, who have a very difference experience through 2500 years, should to look back their, the western, history. It is the reason of the question "Why they have over bias, in tales, very much".

I have been like them before I have deep learned in tipitaka and commentary. Some doctors and scholars in thailand, I even know, have been, too.

But we use our open-minds to learn everything before anti, more than use gossips. So, we choose this way ourselves by our knowledge in science, world history, abhidhamma-pali, commentary-pali, another nikaya history, another nikaya cannon, etc. We are not a hard-kamasukhallikanuyogi like them, so we have a time to do.

We also learn gossips from them, such as Twilight's reference, too. Without any bias, any laugh/angry at every ideas, we still choose the way we have chosen, after learned their gossip. We need to understand their culture, that is very difference from our culture.

Another, nowadays, buddhist cannon's translation around the world still very wrong and still having very confuse context. New language study and new culture study, also very hard, too. The hardest is behavior-changing, such as reader to be memorizer. So many reasons can let them anti tales in sutta.

P.S. The buddha and commentary denied wrong causes/effects-tale in 10 akusalakammapatha (samphappalapa).

The Pali Canon : What A Buddhist Must Know


Thai teachers are not Classical Theravāda


Wrong translation of self, atta, being, satta


Linguistics Reason: Ananda Memorized Sutta For The Other, But Sariputta Memorized Abhidhamma That Buddha Taught Him Directly

Abhidhamma is sutta, that sariputta learned from buddha. Sariputta and buddha taught abhidhamma to whole of 500 arahanta, then 500 arahanta bless it in 1st sangayana. So abhidhamma have difference linguistics from sutta, of ananda. Ananda memorized whole sutta, that buddha have taught to another. But sariputta memorized the reasons (relation) of everything, that buddha taught him directly. Age of buddhist cannon linguistics having the same time being. Buddha taught someone, then he repeat sutta to ananda. Buddha repeat sutta with description, that ananda ask him, commentary. Each sutta description have many causes and effects, so it make commentary very long, hard to memorize, long time to learn, and confusion.  Summary of causes and effects is abhidhamma, that buddha taught to sariputta,  who buddha declared as "the best dhamma teacher (like him)", to let him know the whole causes and effects that possible have. 

Why buddha taught sariputta? Because sariputta ask him.

So most of abhidhamma is "Q&A" like commentary.

The history of buddhism, that we have learned from the western is not perfect enough. Many words that they overlook. It made them have wrong decisions and view.

Minded Vipassanā = Minded Abhidhamma = Minded Whole Possible Suffering [Diff Of Sīla, Samādhi, Vipassanā]

Minded Sīla = Minded Vinaya = Minded Whole Physical Suffering
Minded Samādhi = Minded Sutta = Minded Whole Mental Suffering
Minded Vipassanā = Minded Abhidhamma = Minded Whole Possible Suffering And The Other


Buddha taught Vinaya to let students stop cause of physical suffering, such as killing, robing, adultery, lying, drunk, etc.

So people who minded Sīla, is people who minded Vinaya.

Buddha taught Sutta, ready-made package of abhidhamma, to let ready-samādhi-students enlighten on their own samādhi. The best teacher. He mined whole cause, of  mental suffering, of the students, then he chose minimum-abhidhamma to taught his students. That's why students, in sutta, are very easy to enlighten.

So people who minded Samādhi, is people who minded Sutta.

Buddha enlighten abhidhamma, a base and a summary of sutta, to generate "teaching" that can let students enlighten like him.

(Ariyasacca 4 is subset of abhidhamma. If buddha enlighten only ariyasacca 4 he will be only pacceka-buddha, not sabbaññū-sambuddha.)

So people who minded Vipassanā, is people who minded Abhidhamma.

[b]I have a long history of tipitaka, that can prove whole of my words by tipitaka's and commentary's reference, in my mind. However, it take a lot of time to author articles and translate it to english. I use a long time to author 1 article in thai, and I use a longeer time to prove it,  but I use a longest time to translate it to pali and english.[/b]

What are views?

What are views?
Someone's concept about causes and effects (paṭiccasamuppāda & paṭiccasamuppanna).
Lobha view, desiring wrong concept. Bad.
Kusala view, knowing in wrong/right concept, no desiring. Good.
Wisdom view, rightly understanding in right concept. better.

a)Are views latent factor. What are they?
Co-nascence-condition: 8 citta, 21 cetasika, 28 rūpa.
Powerful-dependence-condition:81 citta, 52 cetasika, 28rūpa.
b)Are newly born children have views?
Yes. Before they cry, they think "my happiness never die".
View is not a word to learn. It is a concept of thinking. Everyone can think. Baby also think.

c)How we develop new views? What are they?
Change person's wrong thinking about causes and effects. Think them new in right concept every time. Don't let nivaraṇa born between thinking.

d)Are Arahants got views?
Yes, It's called "sammādiṭṭhi".


e)Can we live without views?
Sometime. But everytime based on view. Crying has no view, but you maybe have a view before cry.
Example: "My mother never die. Die is only a separation. So, she still be my mother,though she died." So, you cry because of separation, when she die. We can see "when people cry they thinking only 'how can I throw it away? How can I kill it?'". But they always stop to cry to think. Diṭṭhi arising, at that time.


f) Are all views bad?
I answered after, above a) question.


g) What is the life like without views?

I answered in the example of your e) question.


h)What is the etymology of Ditthi?
Lobha view in wrong concept, is micchādiṭṭhi.
Lobha view in right concept, is lobha (citta+cetasika) without micchādiṭṭhi.
Wholesome-citta can think a wrong concept, but it not desire.
Wisdom can think about wrong concept, with deciding "it's wrong causes or/and effects".

Base on
