Hi Lucas,

The sutta I quoted was:
I do not see a single thing that, when it is developed like this, is as workable as the mind (citta)
I could rewrite this, very approximately, as:
When the mind is developed it is workable.
Does that help?

:heart:
Mike
Yes

Thanks!

Re: Why is citta not an aggregate or niddana?

Hi Lucas, 3. Citta. is to be developed and thus pertains to the fourth noble truth. Suttas that talk about citta often talk about development. For example: “Mendicants, I do not see a single thing that, when it is developed like this, is as workable as the mind ( cittaṃ ) https://suttacentral.net/a...

Re: Why is citta not an aggregate or niddana?

Quick summary is here: While there have been many attempts to show that these are either the same or different, in my view that is missing the point somewhat. The terms are, generally speaking, synonyms, and their usage overlaps to some degree, but they tend to be used in different contexts: 1. Viṇ...

Re: Why did the Buddha choose not to live of Light?

Why did the Buddha choose not to live of Light? What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them. Matthew 15:11 Matthew 4:4 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mo...

Thanks Lucas - but must admit the surrounding orange vertical bars and the orange around Dhamma Wheel are too lurid for my taste.
