Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
I'm hoping to get to Thailand and go north with the family at some stage over the next year or two. I've heard it's really lovely up north (not grim at all!)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'. (Snp 3.6)
