Re: Practice According to the Dhamma (Pa.tipatti)
- Hi Tep
> T: According to the Comy. of the Sallekha Sutta (MN 8), patipatti is the "practice according to the teaching". It is also known as 'dhammanudhamma patipatti' [See SN 22.39-42.]J: I think you'll find there are plenty of references to wrong practice (including as "miccha pa.tipadaa") in the texts.
> I have not seen 'miccha patipatti' in the Suttas.
For example, AN 2:40:
"Bhikkhus, I do not praise the wrong practice of two kinds of people: a layperson and one gone forth into homelessness.
"Whether it is a layperson or one gone forth who is practising wrongly, they do not attain the true way, the Dhamma that is wholesome."

:-) I appreciate what I desperately hope is your humor here, and if so, is very funny.
I will get back to you with the usual sutta quotes as soon as I can. :-)
Very very funny, Jon. ; - /

J: You may have forgotten in the confusion over the new format that you have already come back with a quote from the Satipatthana Sutta. My reply to your message can be found here:
