I disagree. Anicca
is always a useful object of meditation no matter what, and to see anicca
is to see phenomenon as it really is. Of course, the depth or degree of anicca perception
may be different for different people of different insights.
"And what is the perception of inconstancy
? There is the case where a monk — having gone to the wilderness, to the shade of a tree, or to an empty building — reflects thus: 'Form is inconstant, feeling is inconstant, perception is inconstant, fabrications are inconstant, consciousness is inconstant.' Thus he remains focused on inconstancy with regard to the five clinging-aggregates. This, Ananda, is called the perception of inconstancy.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
