Nivana Sepayak Vanne Kese da?

සැප විඳින පුද්ගලයෙකු නිවනෙහි නැති නම් නිවන සැපයක් වේ ද? පූජ්‍ය රේරුකානේ චන්දවිම්ල මහනායක හිමියන් විසින් රචිත “ධර්ම විනිශ්චය “ නම් කෘතියෙන්පිටපත් කර ගන්නා ලදී.(.(පිටු අංක 174 සිට 176)

පංචස්කන්ධයේ සැබෑ තත්වය දැකිය හැකි පමණට දියුණු වූ නුවණක් නො ලැබුවෝ ඔවුන් තුල ඇති වූ ඝන වූ අවිද්‍යාව නිසා පංචස්කන්ධය ලෝකේ ඉතාම හොද දෙය, ඉතාම උසස් දෙය සැටියට සලකා ගෙන එයට තදින් අලුම් කරතී….

…. අවිද්‍යාව දුරු වූ දිනක දී පංචස්කන්ධය නැති නිවනේ අගය ඔවුනට වැටහෙන වා ඇත.

From the Wheel of Kamma to the Wheel of Dhamma – Bhikkhu K. Ñāṇananda

captureVenerable Sir, an important problem that I have. Though my mind is generally calm, composed and luminous, I lose my temper in ordinary day to day problems and find it difficult to control myself. Then I go on ranting and raving like an uneducated crazy woman. Because of this trait I irritate my family members, my friends and my neighbours. I get fed up with myself. But very soon my mind gets free from this mad fit of rage. It again becomes luminous. I forget even the incident. It is like a breeze that blows over a tank of calm water. The water that gets ruffled by the breeze again becomes calm after the breeze is gone. The ruffling is not deep.

Though this does not affect me, those around me are adversely affected by it to a great extent. They are not prepared to forget it easily as I do. Thereby in everyday life I keep on making enemies. I become a subject of displeasure for them. I want to be free from this unpleasant trait.

 Venerable Sir, I am seeking your advice for that purpose. After such an incident I can make a precise assessment of the whole incident. I can clearly see my weakness. I can see how it came up. I can also see the weaknesses of those who got involved. I tell myself I should have restrained myself. Yet, I keep on repeating the same mistake. Now it has almost become a habit. Sometimes I wonder whether there is any extraneous compelling force behind it. Even if there is, it is my weakness to get caught up in it……..

Ideal Solitude – Ven Kaṭukurunde Ñāṇananda Thero

ideal-solitudeIdeal Solitude An Exposition of the Bhaddekaratta Sutta  Bhikkhu Ñåˆånanda

The Bhaddekaratta Sutta of the Majjhima Nikåya (No. 131) consists of a “summary” (uddesa) in four verses and an “exposition” (vibha􀀁ga) dealing with some doctrinal points of considerable psychological and ethical import….

Let one not trace back the past Or yearn for the future-yet-to-come. That which is past is left behind Unattained is the “yet-to-come.” But that which is present he discerns — With insight as and when it comesThe Immovable — the-non-irritable. In that state should the wise one grow. Today itself should one bestir 
Tomorrow death may come — who knows?
For no bargain can we strike. With Death who has his mighty hosts. But one who dwells thus ardently By day, by night, untiringly Him the Tranquil Sage has called The Ideal Lover of Solitude.

“And how, monks, does one trace back the past? He thinks: ‘I was of such form in the past’ and brings delight to bear on it. He thinks: ‘I was of such feeling in the past’ and brings delight to bear on it. He thinks: ‘I was of such perception in the past’ and brings delight to bear on it. He thinks: ‘I was of such formations in the past’ and brings delight to bear on them. He thinks: ‘I was of such consciousness in the past’ and brings delight to bear on it. That is how, monks, one traces back the past……………

Transcending all polarities characteristic of the phenomenal consciousnessthe emancipated one thus attains to the highest possible state of mental equilibrium which is “immovable and non-irritable” and in which he meditates, as it were, “thought-less.”
