  • The concept of nonviolence and animal protection in Thēravāda
           Buddhist ethics.

    • Authors: พระสมุห์อดิเรก อาทิจฺจพโล โลกะนัง
      Pages: 1 - 27
      Abstract: This article discusses the concept of nonviolence or Ahimsa with regard to animal protection in Thēravāda Buddhist ethics. It attempts to respond to Western animal rights groups that have criticized Thēravāda Buddhism for being speciesist, treating animals as mere properties, and considering animals as having lower ethical status than humans. According to these views, Thēravāda Buddhism makes no mention of intrinsic values of other lifeforms, and is therefore human-centric. Speciesism is the view that tends to prioritize the interests of members of one’s own species as opposed to those of others. However, this article wishes to defend Thēravāda Buddhism by using 3 main arguments: 1) Thēravāda Buddhist ethics does not contain any speciesist view and in no way supports the killing or using of animals as means to further ends; 2) Thēravāda Buddhism contains teachings on the intrinsic values of all lifeforms; and 3) Thēravāda Buddhism judges the actions and both humans and animals equally and extends the principle of nonviolence (Ahimsa) to animals.

  • consideration of the Buddhist monks’ samaṇasāruppa

    • Authors: อัญชลี ปิยปัญญาวงศ์, สุปรียส์ กาญจนพิศศาล
      Pages: 28 - 73
      Abstract: This article aims to study the concept of samaṇasāruppa and the criteria for considering the samaṇasāruppa of Buddhist monks. The study finds that the term “samaṇasāruppa” refers to a set of criteria which consider not only bodily and verbal expressions (external samaṇasāruppa) but, more importantly, also mental qualities (internal samaṇasāruppa) of Buddhist monks, especially those of noble persons (ariyapuggala). If a Buddhist monk can attain internal samaṇasāruppa or virtues fitting a monastic person, the external samaṇasāruppa will follow spontaneously. In principle, laypersons may consider both internal and external samaṇasāruppa of monks. The criterion for considering internal samaṇasāruppa is the level of monks’ mental ability in eliminating fetters (saṁyojana). The consideration of the external samaṇasāruppa has to refer to precepts and practical traditions of Buddhist monks. In the case of the complex actions, one should also refer to the 4 groups of basic criteria which facilitate monks’ attainment of the ultimate goal of Buddhism. These include: 1) Being easy to support, 2) Wanting little, being content, and not hoarding, 3) Being fond of solitude, free of defilements, and respectable, and 4) Being secluded and exerting. In practice, although laypersons can consider the external samaṇasāruppa of Buddhist monks, it is more difficult to consider their internal samaṇasāruppa due to two limitations. These are: 1) the epistemic limitation in determining whether a monk is a noble person, and if so, at which level, and 2) the limitation of knowledge of the Buddhist monks’ codes of monastic disciplines. Therefore, in considering the samaṇasāruppa of Buddhist monks, a laity should keep these two limitations in mind. Besides, such consideration should be done without bias for the sake of cautiousness and fairness, which will in the end benefit the development of Buddhist monk’s samaṇasāruppa.

  • The process of development to happiness on Buddhism

    • Authors: นิรันดร์ ศิริรัตน์; พระครูปลัดสัมพิพัฒนธรรมาจารย์
      Pages: 74 - 91
      Abstract: This article discusses the process of developing well-being and happiness by practicing Dhamma, as humans’ greatest desire is to achieve happiness or to overcome suffering. In Buddhism, it is said that practicing Dhamma is a way out of suffering as it is a way for human beings to develop their full potential, which will lead to a cessation of suffering on every level, thus enabling them to achieve happiness. Practicing Dhamma in Buddhism includes right and systematic physical, verbal, and mental actions. Once followed, humans will reap the benefits of such practice. That is, they will be freed from cravings and sorrows, they will be able to continue to develop their intelligence, and will finally attain the final fruit – nirvana – which will be the cessation of all sufferings.

  • Buddhist Psychology and the Promotion of Mind-Body Equilibrium Through the
           Threefold Training and Traditional Thai Medicine

    • Authors: พรรณทิพา ชเนศร์
      Pages: 92 - 119
      Abstract: The universal natural law according to Buddhism perceives life as a composite of interrelated and interacting body and mind. Faced with the myriad stimulants in the world, the equilibrium of body and mind may be affected, thus causing physical or mental ill nesses. Therefore, the maintenance of mind-body equilibrium leads to a healthy life – physically through proper consuming, metabolizing, excreting, and resting; mentally through a peaceful, stable, and emotionally-aware state of mind. This research examines a sustainable maintenance of the mind-body equilibrium through the use of principles of Buddhist psychology – Citta, Jetasika, Rupa, Nibhana – in analyzing one’s life. A proper understanding of life can be gained through a process of self-development according to the “Threefold Training” which focuses on practicing the body, speech, and mind to achieve higher awareness and wisdom in conducting one’s life. This equilibrium may be further enhanced by incorporating principles of traditional Thai medicine, which can help maintain it in a durable and sustainable manner.

  • Non-acceptance of Sūtra as the word of Buddha(Buddhavacana) by
           Vātśīputrīya: A case study in Abhidharmakośabhāṣya and

    • Authors: เมธี พิทักษ์ธีระธรรม, ปิยาภรณ์ ว่องวรางกูร, พรพิมล ศรีหมอก
      Pages: 121 - 163
      Abstract: This article exemplifi es a Sūtra that is claimed to not be ‘the word of the Buddha’ (Buddha- vacana) by Vātśīputrīya, a sect of Buddhism. This Sūtra is composed of verses presenting an argument between Śaila bhikṣuṇi and Māra. The VVātśīputrīya’s monks had denied any knowledge of this Sūtra for the reason that it is not the Buddhavacana. Hence, they did not recite it in their community. Consequently, this Sūtra had already disappeared from the canon of the Vātśīputrīya sect. However, Vasubandhu, an interlocutor with this sect and the author of the Abhidharmakośabhāṣya, argued that this same Sūtra is the Buddhavacana because it appears in the canon of two sects, the Saṃyuktāgāma of [Mūla] Sarvāstivādin and the Saṃyuttanikāya of the southern Theravāda. Additionally, evidence from Moggallīputta’s Kathāvatthu that is compiled during the Era of King Asoka indicates that the Vātśīputrīya’s monks (Pāli: Vajjiputtaka) accepted that Sūtra as the Buddhavacana. It is generally known that Kathāvatthu (of Theravāda’s canon) had been compiled much earlier than Abhidharmakośabhāṣya. Considering the time when the disputed Sūtra disappeared from Vātśīputrīya’s canon, one may conclude that it was lost sometime between the period of Moggallīputta and the composition of Abhidharmakośabhāṣya.
