Things like that, and the inability to translate one to one into english - how many different English words to explain the single word dukhha or dhamma or citta... sometimes kusala works as "skillful" or "good" for me, in this case - "desirable" works for the eye - as if the some of the concepts themselves aren't difficult enough - plenty of seeming contradiction - only two named citta for the eye door - performing 40 plus functions of many different names!!!
Your questions help teach me - thank you!
