Re: Does the consciousness experience nibbana ?

Did the Buddha say that after the onset of the final nibbana without the rest of the fuel, any consciousness continues? No. Such a consciousness is fictional.

It's just an idiom, meaning "rooting the mind in mindfulness."

Yeah, they're in the meat body in rupa-jhana. And they touch the deathless element with their palm ;)

Re: Does the consciousness experience nibbana ?

Consciousness without feature, without end, luminous all around Nibbana is not viññāṇa. Really, it just isn’t. K those who dwell touching the deathless element with the body. Cunda Sutta It means touching the mind (meaning mental body) to nibbana. The deathless element is one of the poetic epithets...

You inappropriately use the term "annihilation." It is appropriate to use it only in relation to a constantly existing entity, and in relation to changing phenomena that arise as one and disappear as the other, it is inappropriate to use it.

Not. You do not understand. Without the addition of fuel (tanha), the fire is extinguished, only residual fuel (khandhas formed by past kamma) dies down. With the end of life 5 khandha finally fall apart, only bodily remains remain.

The sutta gives an example from nirodha samapatti. In the final nibbana without fuel residue, consciousness ceases completely.

The self does not cease in nibbana, the self is absent from the beginning, there are only false ideas about the self.
