Re: What is real, spun from other thread

Ok I've seen a couple of suttas where stopping of breathing is mentioned, and I assumed it was a way of expressing the experience literally. How could one survive if even the subtle breathing is stopped. Brain cells surely will die due to lack of oxygen . But it seems some people take it literally....

Re: What is real, spun from other thread

and there would be no basis for to direct critical thinking towards oneself, because there is no self and the 'turning' is an experience, thus it is an illusion.

Re: What is real, spun from other thread

Well I'd call it 'naive ordinary realism' to express a conceptual definition of "reality" and to believe that this is reality. it is exactly an instance of taking concepts to be real.

Re: What is real, spun from other thread

Reality is when you are aware what you are doing, developing existence this way, to avoid falling back to what is concept. Definition of reality 1: the quality or state of being real 2a(1...

Re: What is real, spun from other thread

.. Basically every your response is same: Dependently originated thoughts when expressed through words are concepts. I agree with that. First you place the mind and keep it connected, then you break into speech. That’s why placing the mind and keeping it connected are verbal processes.Pubbe kho, āv...

Re: What is real, spun from other thread

That's inappropriately expressed. It is experience that arises, not something to be experienced. the translated question you made, Do you feel how current thinking depends on or depends on thinking that has already been done in the past? the translation is broken, but at least i understand it. I an...

sutta on kamma, meditation

Some thoughts on meditation: “Sir, can you point out a fruit of giving that’s apparent in the present life?” “sakkā nu kho, bhante, bhagavā sandiṭṭhikaṃ dānaphalaṃ paññāpetun”ti? “I can, Sīha,” said the Buddha.“Sakkā, sīhā”ti bhagavā avoca: “A giver, a donor is dear and beloved to many people.“dāyak...

Re: Seed of dhamma corrupted?

yes, the kamma of those who were givers in the past won't use without accepting invitation. Dhamma center may have initiative slogans like come do a 10 day retreat, but it is not meant for you specifically. Its simply the quality of invitation, if there is no special effort that you are invited to ...
