What exactly do you think it was? The way I read it, Satis error was thinking that consciousness is a permanent entity which continues. Your thoughts?

Greetings Porpoise,

Yes, that was Sati's error.

Metta,
Retro. :)
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)
