Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

... buddha is ... I don't see where from your perspective lands the non-path, ... There being no perspective nothing "lands". Neither buddha nor beings have a foothold on that non-path. Your answer doesn't have any trace of what you answered to. At least try to talk like a normal person, giving rea...

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

No I perfectly understood what you said but I committed the fault of deviating from theravada doctrine in the forum section dedicated to theravada doctrine through applying "not self" to goal-setting and affirmation of life which are two aspects inherent in theravada doctrine. Therefore I have plac...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

Hey auto, let's acknowledge the post of coconut who is totally right that this forum section is about the theravada doctrine and not about 'personal experience' for which there is another forum section. So if you want to have a conversation about 'personal experience' please be referred to the foru...

Khandhas as objects of the sense organs

Consciousness arises dependent on the sense organ. Consciousness is the object of the sense organ. Thus, at some point, sense organ doesn't have khandha. Khandha is not your self, its arising depends on the sense organ. Sense organs are objects of the corruptions/asavas. It could be that the desire ...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

Yes. In my case the "goal of spiritual life" does not belong to self so I give up desire for it, too. ok, so you don't have goal of spiritual life. I think that is also my idea here, since who knows what you mean by the words you write or by default whatever i respond is "my idea". Well it is your ...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

Again these are ideas of yours. You see "deficiency" in what does not affirm your own ideas. I don't have a "character". how i see deficiency in what does not affirm my own ideas? I think you don't take into account that people can empathize with one another. Do you want me to affirm your idea out ...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

Don't know what "philosophy" you are referring to. It's been called "your goal" since you came up with it and started advocating this idea of yours. So it's obviously not mine, right?

of course its "your goal" otherwise it wouldn't apply to your philosophy. Do you know what is deficiency in spirit? you are having only one set of actions and apply it to whatever you do, you never come out of your character.

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

Yes, I don't know self but I know that "the goal of spiritual life" is not self and does not belong to self. The goal of spiritual life is about giving up chanda(desire) for anything what doesn't belong to the self. Of course you are free to choose that idea as your ideal. But actually you suggeste...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

"you" or "me"? Maybe better to put it generally: the sentiment of being is the basis for appropriating "the goal of spiritual life" as 'self', 'mine' or the like. The goal of spiritual life is about giving up desire for anything what doesn't belong to the self. If you are planning to do nothing bec...

Re: Non-return needed to truly know no-self

That's a problematic statement because why should "the goal of spiritual life" be self? Its more problematic to be you. "you" or "me"?

Its more problematic to be you.
