PostSubject: The Quality of Arahat   Fri Jul 01, 2011 3:21 pm

The Arahat is the "Perfected One" who has overcome The Three Poisons of Desire, Hatred and Ignorance. At the end of the present life, he is no longer reborn. In other words, he is finally freed from the suffering of existence in the cycle of birth and death, and attains Nirvana.

When a person realizes that there is no lasting happiness and freedom whenever he may be reborn within the cycle of birth and death, he will strive to attain the goal of Nirvana. The way of the Arhat is the path leading to this goal. The Arahat attains the goal of Nirvana by following strictly the three ways of practice, that is, Good Conduct, Mental Development and Wisdom.

Arahatship designates an understanding that has the following characteristics:
1.The arahat has seen through the sense that there is a continuous, separate, or special controller,
doer, observer, or centerpoint that is "who they are" in a very direct perceptual way that is not
merely an intellectual or conceptual understanding.

2.They know the sensations that seemed to imply these to be just more sensations arising and
vanishing according to conditions as they always have been.

3.This is not something they have to work to maintain, but instead is something that has stopped.

4.The arahat knows in real time and directly what is meant by such phrases and concepts as:
1."in the thinking is only the thought, in the seeing is only the seen, etc."
2.intrinsic luminosity
3.the emptiness of phenomena
4.that Nibbana is found in Samsara
5.and a whole host of other poetic metaphors and attempts as description.

Here are a number of bogus myths and falsehoods about arahats, each of which violates one of more of the First Principles in addition to simply being untrue:

1.Arahats cannot lie.
2.Arahats cannot have erections or have sex.
3.Arahats would never do drugs or drink.
4.Arahats cannot kill anything ever.
5.Arahats cannot state they are arahats.
6.Arahats must ordain within 7 days of becomming an arahat in the Buddhist order of monks or they will die.
7.Arahats cannot think the thought "I am an arahat."
8.Arahats cannot feel the following emotions: lust, hatred, irritation, restlessness, worry, fear, pride,
conceit, desire for the formless realms, desire for the formed realms, or any other "bad" emotion.
9.Arahats cannot like music or dance.
10.Arahats love forests.
11.Arahats cannot have jobs or normal relationships.
12.Arahats do not really exist today.
13.Arahats must work hard to maintain their understanding, and it is this that makes them unable to do
so many things.
14.Arahats have not fully realized the Truth of Things, but instead only practioners of certain strains of
Tibetan Buddhism can really see through to reality.
