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. :)
"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
