Re: entered upon the path of ariya vs ariya

Does anyone understand the difference between one who has entered upon the path of an ariya and being an ariya? Refer to MN 70 for the seven-fold typology of noble disciples, two of which, the faith-follower/SaddhaNusari and Dhamma-follower/DhammaNusari, are 2 classes of disciples who are on the Pa...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

So an advanced meditator can see aggregates forming and dissolving? As in one citta follow by another? Yes, there're many threads on DW that thoroughly discussed those various minute/instantaneous mind-moments/cittaKkhana. The typical 17 moments are explained in great details in the CMOA . These ar...

The topic is: " What is the practical use of the concept of a citta? Other than in contemplation of mind in foundation of mindfulness? " My answer is: " Libe...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

Sorry but all your questions are answered. As always, you provide no answers, nor any refutation. :smile: Nope, you have not answered any of my specific questions.

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

U are only asking questions rather than presenting answers. Your posts appear to be merely spam. Citta = ceto For example: Anavassuta citta ssa, ananvāhata ceta so; Puññapāpapahīnassa, natthi jāgarato bhayaṃ. For the one with mind free of lust, for the one with mind unperplexed, for the one who has...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

NO you did not. That's cetovimutti, a specific use/context of citta. You have not shown what Citta is. :roll: ceto neuter = citta, https://suttacentral.net/define/ceto Do you even know the difference between citta and cetovimutti? Why do you keep automatically assume citta as cetovimutti?? :roll: A...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

You have provided nothing, no link or literature to back up what you said about citta: "Citta is used to describe that which is liberated". Just show exact reference please. But i did. :roll: The limitless heart’s release , and the heart’s release through nothingness, and the heart’s release throug...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

And most definitely not you, who said "Citta is used to describe that which is liberated". No such thing there in the dictionary. If so, the dictionary contradicts the suttas and supports my post that the dictionary is not the Buddha. citta2 neuter I. Meaning the heart (psychologically), i.e. the c...

Re: What is the practical use of the concept of a citta?

Sorry but citta satipatthana or cittanupassana is not "seeing the seeing" Sorry but you simply don't have any common sense whatsoever. Sorry but the video appears childish The video is just an analogy. So far you have contributed absolutely nothing to the OP, only nitpicking others post. So, sorry ...
