Greetings Drolma,

That's a very detailed question! I'm going to move this to the Abhidhamma forum for you in the hope of getting you a response. :popcorn:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Drolma

It would be helpful to know what text are you quoting from.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hello Retro, Ben,

It is in Abhidhammattha-Sangaha CHAPTER IV - Analysis of Thought-Processes
Scroll down to Thought Processes section
http://www.abhidhamonline.org/Chapter1- ... es/ch4.htm

Thanks Chris

I thought it looked familiar but I wasn't sure before I began transcribing Narada Thera's and Bhikkhu Bodhi's notes on the section which might be the first port of call to help unravel this section of the Abhidhammatthasangaha.

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}

Actually, I apologize robertk. I think in terms of the guidelines you are right. It is not a good post. I had hoped my feedback on the Ref. and the question in the OP would get the ball rolling towards either a correction of my comment based on correct abhidhamma interpretation or at least the reformulation of the comment on that basis. I have already said I do not think I am capable of competently taking that approach and so I usually don't post in abhidhamma forums. I will continue reading out of appreciation for those who can. So, please someone, provide the correct answer in this context.
