Two men look out though the same bars,
one sees the " mud" the other sees the " stars :buddha2:" :buddha2:

Greetings Jarmika,

Yes, all we experience is our own perceptions and experiences... the "inner world".

Along those lines, do you find that suttas like the following ones are discussed in this context in Thailand?

SN 35.23: Sabba Sutta

SN 2.26: Rohitassa Sutta
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
