as I understand it vipassana metaphorically is like taking a jar with dirt on the bottom and stirring it up, so one can see the defilements and let go of them? and samatha is just the settling of the dirt to the bottom of the jar where one temporarily suppresses the defilements and enjoys the bliss of a temporary wholesome mind. so my question is when we stir up the defilments how do we deal with them? im referring to the mahasi Burmese method. excuse me if I am misinterpreting this, but I think this is the teaching. metta, befriend
