Re: Why can't conceit and wrong view arise together?

But if one citta is separated from another not by seconds, but milliseconds, microseconds, or even nanoseconds, then it doesn't matter that wrong view and conceit have to arise together simultaneously on the same nanosecond, does it? I know this, it is just like computer multitasking Computers have...

Re: Why can't conceit and wrong view arise together?

Some of these thoughts are reflections based on wrong view, while others are reflections involving conceited comparison of oneself with another. Isn't it self-evident that the Christian can't be doing the two things at the same time? In any moment when she is occupied with thinking about the implic...

Re: Why can't conceit and wrong view arise together?

Perhaps you will find an answer if you find what two consciousness can arise together. Can you find an answer to this question? Two cittas cannot arise together, this is self-evident to me. Here is the simile: each citta is compared to every static movie frame, they cannot overlap. So two cittas ca...

Re: Why can't conceit and wrong view arise together?

The proximate cause of conceit is greed dissociated from wrong view. All that's denied is the possibility of their simultaneous presence in one and the same citta. Thank you, Bhante. I am still quite confused about the proximate cause of conceit——greed dissociated from wrong view. Where does this p...

Why can't conceit and wrong view arise together?

Conceit (māna): Conceit has the characteristic of haughtiness. Its function is self-exaltation. It is manifested as vainglory. Its proximate cause is greed dissociated from views . It should be regarded as madness. --- A Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma page 84 It seems to me that when a Christia...

Re: Looking for the answers for the exercises from "The New Pali Course" by Ven. Buddhadatta

I am from China. I had studied the first book of this series under the guidance of a Chinese teacher in 2013. Last month, knowing that I had the basic knowledge of Pali language, a Sri Lanka Bhante gave me the hard copy of all the three books and hoped me to resume my study.
