'nutriment' synonym of āhāra, is one of those 8 minimal constituent parts, or qualities, of all materiality, to wit: the solid, liquid, heat, motion; colour, odour, taste and nutriment. This is the 'octad with nutriment as the eighth factor' ojatthamaka-kalāpa also called the 'pure 8-fold unit' suddhatthaka-kalāpa being the most primitive material combination.

("short passages"; abbreviated as "Khp") is a Buddhist scripture, the first collection of discourses (suttas) in the Khuddaka Nikaya of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism. It includes texts essential to Buddhist disciples.

The collection is composed of the following nine discourses:

* "Going for Refuge" (Saranattayam)
* "Ten Precepts" (Dasasikkhapadam)
* "Thirty-two Parts [of the Body]" (Dvattimsakaro)[1]
* "Novice's Questions" (Kumarapanha)
* "Discourse on Blessings" (Mangala Sutta)
* "Discourse on Treasures" (Ratana Sutta)
* "[Hungry Shades] Outside the Wall Chapter" (Tirokutta Sutta)
* "Reserve Fund Chapter" (Nidhikanda Sutta)
* "Discourse on Lovingkindess" (Metta Sutta)

The Khuddakapatha is considered a late addition to the Pali Canon, collecting discourses all but one of which is found elsewhere in the Pali Canon. (The Nidhi Kanda is not extant in the current Pali Canon but does include text [Khp 8.9] quoted in the Abhidhamma Pitaka's Kathavatthu [Kv 351,18-21].

'defilements', are mind-defiling, disadvantageous qualities. Vis.M XXII, 49, 65: There are 10 defilements, thus called because they are themselves defiled, and because they defile the mental properties associated with them.

or Kriya-citta

'functional consciousness' or 'kammically inoperative consciousness', is a name for such states of consciousness as are neither kammically advantageous kusala nor disadvantageous akusala nor kamma-results vipāka that is, they function independently of kamma. Thus are also called all those worldly mental states in the Arahat which are accompanied by 2 or 3 noble roots greedlessness, hatelessness, unconfusedness, being in the Arahat kammically neutral and corresponding to the kammically advantageous states of a non-Arahat see: Tab. 1-8 and 73-89, as well as the rootless mirth-producing hasituppāda mind-consciousness-element of the Arahat Tab. 72; further, that mind-element mano-dhātu which performs the function of directing āvajjana to the sense object Tab. 70, and that mind-consciousness-element manoviññāna-dhātu which performs the functions of deciding votthapana and directing to the mental object Tab. 71. The last-named 2 elements, of course, occur in all beings.

Together with kamma-resultant consciousness vipāka it belongs to the group of 'kammically neutral consciousness' avyākata.

'foundation'. The 2 wrong foundations of morality are craving tanhā-nissaya and views ditthi-nissaya Hence there are two wrong bases of morality: morality based on craving tanhā-nissita-sīla and morality based on views ditthi-nissita-sīla. App.

'Based on craving' is that kind of morality which has come about by the desire for a happy existence, e.g.: 'O that by this morality I might become a godlike or divine being!' A.IX, 172. 'Based on views' is that morality which has been induced by the view that through the observation of certain moral rules purification may be attained; Vis.M I.

lit. 'wrongly-performed-ness' ku+krta+ya i.e. regrets, remorse, uneasiness of conscience, worry, is one of the kammically disadvantageous akusala mental abilities which, whenever it arises, is associated with hateful discontented consciousness. It is the 'repentance over wrong things done, and right things neglected' Com. to A. I. Restlessness and regrets uddhacca-kukkucca combined, are counted as one of the 5 mental hindrances nivarana, (Five hindrances).

lit. 'the downward-Path', the nether or infernal world, usually translated by 'hell', is one of the 4 lower courses of existence apāya. The Buddhists are well aware that on account of the universal sway of impermanence a life in hell, just as in heaven, cannot last eternally, but will after exhaustion of the kamma which has caused the respective form of rebirth, necessarily be followed again by a new death and a new rebirth, according to the stored-up kamma.

"collection", "assemblage", "class" or "group" in both Pali and Sanskrit. It is most commonly used in reference to the Buddhist texts of the Sutta Pitaka, but can also refer to the monastic divisions of Theravada Buddhism.
