Guidelines for Posting Here - Bhikkhu Pesala - 06-05-2017

I set up this forum as a place to learn about Theravāda Buddhism, without distraction from those who only like to debate or promote their own views. 

If you look at the forums page on my website you will find a number of frequently asked questions answered, as well as some common misconceptions refuted. 

If you wish to discuss other schools of Buddhism, or modern academic approaches, there are other forums that will suit your needs better. 

For the purposes of this forum, the Pāḷi texts and commentaries are regarded as the most reliable authorities that we have. Later works like the Visuddhimagga, Abhidhammatthasaṅgaha, or Milindapañha are regarded as valuable too, as are works by contemporary teachers who are well-versed in the Pāḷi texts.
