Does Insight Knowledge Arise Spontaneously in Vipassana

Postby smokey » Tue Aug 18, 2009 4:02 pm

Does knowledge gained with vipassana meditation arise spontaneously? It seems logical to me that it does, because it is not that knowledge that comes from concluding or thinking. I posed the question because I wanted to be sure. Thank you in advance for the answers.

some like understanding nonself do 'pop up' suddenly. others are evident just on seeing patterns in phenomena- nama-rupa, cause and effect for example. Others are based on emotional reactions- like dukkha/unsatisfactoriness, fear, dissolution to what is going on. Others still require deeper 'drilling' into the subconsciousness- impermanence.
