Thats fine to stick with what your teachers teach, i wasnt trying to tell you what you should or shouldnt believe :smile: I do really mean that, sorry if it came accross that way.

Just investigate for yourself, dont accept something first hand because it is written or because someone tells you it is a certain way or because its just traditional.

'I'm' standing by 'my' ignorance, until 'I' either kick the habit or 'my' ignorance rebirths 'me'. :jumping:
This is kind of a snark hunt either way isn't it? Considering? The ongoing ignorance pertains to all the aggregates, trying to locate it as confined in some way within any one of these conditions of ongoing ignorance would be a fools errand, no?
But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}

Hi, I don't know if coinciousness is the right word to describe if there's something individual there remains after death, well, all that I can see it that some beings are inclined to do certain things and some other things. If there's no re-linking of conciousness there is somewhere that are the "storage" of "personal kamma"? What the Buddha means with that:

"He sees — by means of the divine eye, purified & surpassing the human — beings passing away and re-appearing, and he discerns how they are inferior & superior, beautiful & ugly, fortunate & unfortunate in accordance with their kamma: 'These beings — who were endowed with bad conduct of body, speech, & mind, who reviled the noble ones, held wrong views and undertook actions under the influence of wrong views — with the break-up of the body, after death, have re-appeared in the plane of deprivation, the bad destination, the lower realms, in hell. But these beings — who were endowed with good conduct of body, speech, & mind, who did not revile the noble ones, who held right views and undertook actions under the influence of right views — with the break-up of the body, after death, have re-appeared in the good destinations, in the heavenly world.' Thus — by means of the divine eye, purified & surpassing the human — he sees beings passing away and re-appearing, and he discerns how they are inferior & superior, beautiful & ugly, fortunate & unfortunate in accordance with their kamma."

?

Cya Thanks.

I guide my feet to the path because every step is into the unknown.
The path is a certain way through.
The rest is a certain known.
