There have been several threads on this, try doing a search.


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

:goodpost:

We can not make water smooth if we smooth out it with our hand.
We have just to stop tuching it.

When there is no contact, there is no perception, volitional formation, feeling , and finaly no agging and death.

"It is possible, brahman, to lay down a gradual training, a gradual doing, a gradual practice in respect of this dhamma and discipline..."

So, , I think that's putting the cart before the horse. Sense restraint is the thread's theme, not this vaunted bhavana of which you speak.
