Two men look out though the same bars,
one sees the " mud" the other sees the " stars :buddha2:" :buddha2:

Greetings Jarmika,

Yes, all we experience is our own perceptions and experiences... the "inner world".

Along those lines, do you find that suttas like the following ones are discussed in this context in Thailand?

SN 35.23: Sabba Sutta

SN 2.26: Rohitassa Sutta
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html

Metta,
Retro. :)
