Dear Ayya @vimalanyani
I was going over an old thread you’d started with some questions in mind. I was going to ask a simpler question (as you know ) but then decided on a few different questions and the odd comment. I know you won’t mind.
I was originally going to ask what the specific rules are…but you’ve already answered that here:
As a rough guess, how often do you think these are repeated in EBT Suttas? Sorry that might be a tough question!
I liked that the following texts are EBTS:
And there’s this, which seems, in accordance with the “legal” side of things to demonstrate that there is a precedence for going to an even earlier text for your rules. Would these be considered “even earlier” and are there other cases where earlier cases are used “legally”?
Nice…I love this about how the Buddha set things up.
Right, I’ve asked Ayya and it’s the Q & A section.
So…if you want to post your ‘answers’ please back them up with EBT references and, as always, keep this a friendly thread.
Please don’t expect any responses from me either as I’m busy with other matters and won’t be on D&D for a number of days…
