Getting Away From Prapanca, The Practical Applications of the Honeyball Sutta

by Subhuti (2010)

A ground setting talk by Subhuti at the start of an Order meditation retreat. He introduces material from the honeyball sutta in which the Buddha presents an alternative nidana chain that explains the basis of interpersonal conflict; in this context Subhuti brings emphasis on the internal dimensions and particularly the role of prapanca (abstraction, speculation). Our job in meditationis to stay with our 'primary experience' rather than getting drawn away which inevitably leads to unskilful behaviour on the basis of greed, hatred or delusion
