No I'm really confused. Clearly in the first quote you are using "death" the same way the rest of us would?
General question to all: As far as I can tell, this "Dhamma Language" idea originates with Buddhadasa. Am I correct? Or confused?
As a conventional means, in reality its only the momentary ending of grasping/craving since its from this that self-view or "I" comes from. Which is why in the other post i stated that my understanding is when i speak of death in reality its just means ending of craving/grasping
As far as i can tell its from the suttas
The Awakened One, best of speakers,
Spoke two kinds of truths:
The conventional and the ultimate.
A third truth does not obtain.
The speech wherewith the world converses is true
On account of its being agreed upon by the world.
The speech which describes what is ultimate is also true,
Through characterizing dhammas as they really are.
Therefore, being skilled in common usage,
False speech does not arise in the Teacher,
Who is Lord of the World,
When he speaks according to conventions.
(Mn. i. 95)
