This conditioned process of mind and body practices for it's own sake.

Not trying to be holier-than-thou here, but your previous post seems to be positing some permanent thingie somewhere in there. Which, following anatta, is an unsustainable premise.

I am just posting some questions for people to think about be it permanent, not permanent, Buddha Nature, or whatever, it must be "something" there whether people rejecting or accepting it. And that "something" is what experiencing phenomenon. So lets saying undefinable for now. Whether rejecting or accepting "it," I am sure will not affect people's practice at all.

No hard feelings here, just having a discussion. But since anything else I might say in reply would be a repeat, I will back out of the room now.

Mahayana describes emptiness-not permanent or impermanent, not eternal or eternal, not non-dualities or dualities....does not reject or accept, that's why it is called emptiness/Buddha Nature and dependently arising. When there is no ignorance, there is wisdom. When there is no wisdom, there is ignorance.

I'm sorry to inform you Mr. L., but your posts have shown no logical consistency or structure. At this point it is hereby requested that you make a statement of purpose.

In other words, what the heck are you trying to say, and why did you choose to say it here?

Perhaps it is best to first clarify what this "experiencer" is beyond a bunch of notions (insight).

"Apparently" it is not always as it appears.

Why not investigate? Theravadins are all for investigation, I am sure.

LL,
You are officially reprimanded on two counts.
One, not knowing that of which you speak.
Two, being a person with no sense of humor or awareness.
I punish you to being banished until further notice.

I am sure they are, but I was just avoiding the confusion in what I was trying to say.

And there are some Dhamma police here.
