The 'divine beings of the Brahma-world' inhabit the first 3 heavens of the fine-material world, rūpaloka corresponding to the 1st absorption jhāna. The highest ruler of them is called the Great Brahma mahā-brahmā. With caustic humor he is said D. 11 to pretend: I am Brahma, the Great Brahmā, the Most High, the Invincible One, the Omniscient One, the Ruler, the Lord, the Creator, the Maker, the Perfect One, the Preserver, the Controller, the Father of all that was and will be.

'pure chaste or Noble life', is a term for the life of the monk. Also a lay-devotee who observes the 8 moral precepts sikkhāpada, takes as the third precept the vow of chastity, i.e. full abstention from sexual relations. The highest aim and purpose of b. is, according to M. 29, the 'unshakable deliverance of mind'.

Bodhipakkhiya-dhammā

The 37 'things pertaining (or steps) to enlightenment', or 'requisites of enlightenment' comprise the entire doctrines of the Buddha. They are:

* The 4 foundations of awareness or mindfulness satipatthāna,
* The 4 right efforts see: padhāna,
* The 4 roads to power iddhi-pāda,
* The 5 spiritual abilities indriya, see: bala,
* The 5 spiritual powers bala,
* The 7 factors of enlightenment bojjhanga,
* The Noble 8-fold path see: magga.

In M. 77 all the 37 bodhipakkhiya-dhammā are enumerated and explained though not called by that name. A detailed explanation of them is given in Vis.M XXII. In S.XLVII, 51, 67, only the five spiritual abilities indriya are called bodhipakkhiya-dhammā and in the Jhāna Vibhanga, only the 7 factors of enlightenment bojjhanga.

[bodhi-pakkhiya-dhammaa]:

"Wings to Awakening" seven sets of principles that are conducive to Awakening and that, according to the Buddha, form the heart of his teaching: [1] the four frames of reference (see satipatthana); [2] four right exertions (sammappadhana) the effort to prevent unskillful states from arising in the mind, to abandon whatever unskillful states have already arisen, to give rise to the good, and to maintain the good that has arisen; [3] four bases of success (iddhipada) desire, persistence, intentness, circumspection; [4] five dominant factors (indriya) conviction, persistence, mindfulness, concentration, discernment; [5] five strengths (bala) identical with [4]; [6] seven factors for Awakening (bojjhanga) mindfulness, investigation of phenomena, persistence, rapture (see piti), serenity, concentration, equanimity; and [7] the eightfold path (magga) Right View, Right Attitude, Right Speech, Right Activity, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration.

'knowing the measure in eating'.

Now, o Bhikkhus, the Bhikkhu wisely reflecting partakes of his foodfood, neither for pastime, nor for indulgence, nor to become beautiful or handsome, but only to maintain and support this body, to avoid harm and to assist the Noble life, knowing: 'In this way I shall dispel the former pain of hunger, etc. and no new pain shall I let arise, and long life, blamelessness and ease will be my share ' This, o Bhikkhus, is knowing the measure in eating. A. III. 16. How o Bhikkhus, would it be possible for Nanda to lead the absolutely pure life of Nobility, if he did not watch over his senses and did not know the measure in eating? A. VII, 9.

the 'undercurrent forming the condition of being, or existence', though, as will be evident from the following, it differs in several respects from the usage of that term in Western psychology. Bhavanga bhava-anga, which, in the canonical works, is mentioned twice or thrice in the Patthāna, is explained in the Abhidhamma commentaries as the foundation or condition kārana of existence bhava, as the sine, qua of life, having the nature of a process, lit. a flux or stream sota. Herein, since time immemorial, all contacts and experiences are, as it were, stored up, or better said, are functioning, but concealed as such to full consciousness, from where however they occasionally emerge as subconscious phenomena and approach the threshold of full consciousness, or crossing it become fully conscious. This so-called 'subconscious life-stream' or undercurrent of life is that by which might be explained the ability of memory, paranormal psychic phenomena, mental and physical growth, kamma and rebirth. etc. An alternative rendering is 'life-continuum'.

'subconsciousness' bhavanga-citta is a kamma-resultant state of consciousness vipāka, and that, in birth as a human or in higher forms of existence, it is always the result of good, or advantageous kamma kusala-kamma-vipāka, though in varying degrees of strength see: patisandhi, end of the article. The same holds true for rebirth consciousness patisandhi and death consciousness cuti, which are only particular manifestations of subconsciousness. In Vis.M XIV it is said:

As soon as rebirth-consciousness in the embryo at the time of conception has ceased, there arises a similar subconsciousness with exactly the same object, following immediately upon rebirth-consciousness and being the result of this or that kamma intentional action done in a former birth and remembered there at the moment before death. And again a further similar state of subconsciousness arises. Now, as long as no other consciousness arises to interrupt the continuity of the life-stream, so long the life-stream, like the flow of a river, rises in the same way again and again, even during dreamless sleep and at other times. In this way one has to understand the continuous arising of those states of consciousness in the life-stream. Cf. viññāna-kicca .
