Origin of the khandas?

Postby danieLion » Thu Nov 10, 2011 9:14 am

Search yielded nothing so forgive me if this is redundant:

Are the khandas orginal to the Buddha? Ajaan Geoff says no, but I recall--but can't find the reference just now--reading a non-Buddhist scholar (probably Sue Hamilton) mentioning emerging evidence that the khandas existed in Indian culture before the Buddha.

Has anyone else come across this references or others?

Try Gombrich What the Buddha Thought, pg. 29-30.
There are other references to "five fire wisdom" in the index,
but less info or references than desired (a general problem
with this whole book, in my opinion).

There are a couple of references in Jurewicz, too,
if you have a copy.
