Hi Alex, Sarah, ... Ah, ok, for those unaware, that s the software that tipitaka.org offers - you can install it on you computer and have a searchable tipitakaMessage 1 of 22 , Mar 19View SourceHi Alex, Sarah,
> I use Chattha Sangayana Tipitaka 4.0 program to search pali.Ah, ok, for those unaware, that's the software that tipitaka.org offers - you can install it on you computer and have a searchable tipitaka edition not dependent on internet connection. Similar to DPR I presume, only the pali edition is in full.
> I don't know specifics about other programs. What you can try is to search using * .Yes, thanks, this worked well on the tipitaka.org new online search, searching for upanissayagocar* actually gives some results.
I've also noticed for the first time that tipitaka.org offers PDF files of all the pali texts it has. Downloading one then allows search in the PDF file itself, though it seems somewhat limited to sequential find function only.

S: If someone is in a bar but reflecting on visible object, sound or other realities, they are the gocara, upanissayagocara. If on the other hand one is in the monastery thinking of drink or other bad conduct, then at that time the objects of thought are the agocara - not the proper resort of thinking.
> But the monastery with wise bhikkhus is a good gocara for me. It supports all kinds of siila and good conduct for me. Carittasiila and varitta siila.
S: It depends whether one is hearing and reflecting of the truths, on present paramattha dhammas or hearing and reflecting on wrong views about self, practice and bad habits.
The right and wrong resort as object of thinking is experienced just for a moment of thinking only.

S: That's the point.
Meghiya, the Buddha's attendant, saw a secluded mango grove which
he considered perfect for living and meditating alone and for making an effort
on the Path in spite of the Buddha's discouragement. Once there, he was
overwhelmed by thoughts of sense-desire, ill-will and cruelty. When he returned,
the Buddha said:
"When liberation of heart is not fully mature <i.e non-enlightened>, Meghiya,
five things conduce to full maturity."
These five in brief are:
1. The good friend
3. Talk concerned with the Dhamma and development of wholesome states
4. the 4 Right Efforts
5. Insight leading to the destruction of dukkha.
The sutta can be found here, but a lot more helpful detail is in the commentary:

S: A pleasure, but we're having to pause as we're travelling on Sat. Will continue once settled in Hong Kong.
