This is # 10: it does not have a heading.
From Nyanatiloka's "Buddhist Dictionary"
http://www.saigon.co...ict/dic_idx.htm

ásava: (lit: influxes), 'cankers', taints, corruption's, intoxicant
biases. There is a list of four (as in D. 16, Pts.M., Vibh.): the canker
of sense-desire (kámásava), of (desiring eternal) existence
(bhavásava), of (wrong) views (ditthásava), and of ignorance
(avijjásava). A list of three, omitting the canker of views, is
possibly older and is more frequent in the Suttas, e.g. in M. 2, M. 9,
D. 33; A. III, 59, 67; A. VI, 63. - In Vibh. (Khuddakavatthu Vibh.) both
the 3-fold and 4-fold division are mentioned. The fourfold division also
occurs under the name of 'floods' (ogha) and 'yokes' (yoga).

Through the path of Stream-Entry, the canker of views is destroyed;
through the path of Non-Returning, the canker of sense-desire; through
the path of Arahatship, the cankers of existence and ignorance. M. 2
shows how to overcome the cankers, namely, through insight,
sense-control, avoidance, wise use of the necessities of life, etc. For
a commentarial exposition, see Atthasálini Tr. I, p. 63f: II, pp.
475ff.

Khínásava, 'one whose cankers are destroyed', or 'one who is
canker-free', is a name for the Arahat or Holy One. The state of
Arahatship is frequently called ásavakkhaya, 'the destruction of the
cankers'. Suttas concluding with the attainment of Arahatship by the
listeners, often end with the words: "During this utterance, the hearts
of the Bhikkhus were freed from the cankers through clinging no more"
(anupádáya ásavehi cittáni vimuccimsú'ti).

The individual post heading numbers need to be high-lighted better.
They can hardly be seen.
Can someone do that, or do I need to?

NB: I'm not doing anything with the first part (message) of the posts,
i.e., each bracketed post has a number in front which is a message
about the post (i guess?).
Do these need to be moved over also??

HELP!
MORE! even more, ready to post.
First batch all 230 posts are done, starting on next set.

Can't post until i hear from someone, answer those questions please!!

R
Don't discourage the help!

A point about the first part of each post, on looking at quite a few of them. I don't
really understand how they relate to the other part, i.e., the bracketed part. They seem to be either
personal messages or on matters unrelated to the 'Visuddhimagga' text. Also where the same
number is tagged to the front of posts in the top group, i.e., "Text: paragraph number and message number", and to the bottom group; "Nina's trans. and/or exposition of tika", the message is the same.

So i will leave off making a list of all the messages and just do the texts, until I hear from ?

Thank you,

Robert
