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...

I'm certainly not the one who started the rants. I repeat, what have you contributed to the OP? It seems you were wrong, again.

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 ...

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

Mindfulness does not "see"... also its probably not ideal to say citta "sees"... even though this does occur in sutta but probably only in association with the quality of the heart, such as. If you don't understand "seeing" as a common word expression, then you simply have no common sense. lol... c...

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

Neo only Awakened after Trinity kissed Him, therefore a high sense of Metta is needed for certain types of Awakening. Love must not be abandoned, however, but lust is a fetter. We can perceive the world exactly for what it is, but if we do not have Mahakaruna for ourselves and others our citta will...

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

Other than in contemplation of mind in foundation of mindfulness? It's like a close-in dissection view of things under a microscope. Advanced meditators' concentration and minfulness strength is so powerful and refined that they can see clearly the arising/disappearance of phenomena per mind-moment...
