What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Hello clw_uk,

Some interesting comments you have.

Isn't "don't have any views" a view itself?

Also

Isn't "Dependent on intellect & ideas, intellect-consciousness arises...etc.", a view as well?

Thanks,

Alex

How can we talk about something if we can't talk about it?
