How and where we get wisdom by meditation (Bhavanamaya Panna)?
This question is based on the teaching of as per the following link.
I understand very clearly how we get wisdom by hearing and thinking.
I need to know how Bhavanmaya Panna works. Is there a scientific reason?
According to the commentaries, people who can attain the first
and higher stages of enlightenment through mere hearing of a
discourse do not exist anymore nowadays. However, one can
gain knowledge by listening attentively to the wise when one is
unable to think out or reason by oneself. This kind of knowledge
is called Sutamaya Panna (wisdom derived through hearing)
while the knowledge acquired through reasoning is called
Cintamaya Panna (wisdom derived from thinking) and the
experiential or insight knowledge gained through meditation is
called Bhavanamaya Panna (wisdom derived from meditation).
According to the Mangala Sutta, "Association with the wise is
the highest blessing", because when one listens attentively to the
words of the wise, one acquires wisdom from them.
In worldly matters, Cintamaya Panna and Sutamaya Panna are
very extensive in nature. All the arts and sciences one learned at
school and university, were acquired through listening, and thus
constitute Sutamaya Panna. All various crafts and professions
acquired through one's reasoning and research and not through
asking or hearing from others constitute Cintamaya Panna. Thus
to achieve worldly knowledge to enable one to be successful,
attentive listening followed by reasoning or research on the
subject is crucial.http://www.urbandharma.org/pdf/PDF_Budd ... havana.pdf
