"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

I found venerable Analayo's about MN 117 and its parallel versions interesting. Apparently, the supramundane right view part was added later to the sutta from the Abhidharma, and the supramundane path-factors do not appear anywhere else in the Nikayas.

"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead" - Thomas Paine

Tiltbillings,
I'm not up to dueling the dual views here....my mouse broke and I'm navigating the glowing screen using keystrokes only....what an adventure......
But....just for the record...do you poo-poo? (the commentaries and Abhdhamma that is).
