Vedanā at eye-base

Postby Alex123 » Fri Sep 07, 2012 4:12 pm

Dear All,

It is said that vedanā that is experienced at eye-base is only neutral. What happens when we look directly at the sun? It feels painful. If I put any other body part, such as an arm, it does feel bad. It can actually be felt as warm and pleasant. But if I look at the sun, there is unpleasant experience. Can somebody explain this please?

With best wishes,

Alex

Would it not be natural to differ between mind-based experience through the eyes and the pain from body through eyes?

Namo Buddhānaṁ.

Hello Dear All ,

Eyes base vedanā only rise at retina and always accompanied indiffernce (neither-pain-nor-pleasure but it is bad experience by eyes sense) but eyes painful is base on muscle, or surface skin of the eyes.

You can notice this effect by yourself.

When you look at the sun...

1, people habit (uppanissayapaccaya) always froce contract your muscle. Mahābūtasūpa ,except Āpo, in all muscle will hard hit themselves.

2. Your surface skin of the eyes and all of sunshiny organs in the eyes will burn by Tejo Mahābūtasūpa of the sunlight.

I hope that all may be enough to explain your question.


I wish y'all happy.
