Looking...

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. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)
