This has been on my mind for a long time to investigate, and I would appreciate any links to good discussions on this. It is this: we feel metta for someone, or just have a feeling of generalized goodwill towards humanity at a particular moment. That is an intention, a sankhara, right? But along with that intention, there is a pleasant feeling, which is classed as vedana. So is it like this: metta is sankhara,
but there is pleasant feeling that results from contact with it, which is vedana
(in this instance, 'not-of-the-flesh'?) but when we are actually in
the experience, it seems difficult to distinguish these?
(By the way, if I have totally or even partially misapprehended (or incorrectly defined) anything, please let me know!)
Thanks for reading
