Re: Is it possible to enjoy the five sensual feelings once you experience Jhana?

As i understand while a practitioner's mind is able to attain jhana, his perseption of pleasant vs inpleasant is shifted to perception of peace vs exitation, where peace is pleasent and all kind of sensual exitation is unpleasent. As if someone will wear a silk clothes for a while, and then he will ...

Re: Is contemplating AriyaSacca the way to Stream-Entry?

I don't think one can lose it. That's good !) I think this is much more likely closer to death because most people live busy lives and don't really establish these perceptions. It is good to aim high of course but then one should do extraordinary effort if one wants extraordinary results, otherwise...

Re: How to move forward from Sotāpanna?

Very good question ;)

As I can understand, the next step is to practice jhana. Send door restraint, tranquillity etc. And of corse continue with 4 Satipathana.
The best will be to ordain because it's difficult to practice tranquillity and sens door restraint while living a household life... imo

Re: Is contemplating AriyaSacca the way to Stream-Entry?

Thank you Rightview for this compilation of great quotes ! _/\_ :) Iam not an expert but i heard many times that StreamEntry is the most "dramatic, revolutionary" experience in one's mind, while Sakadagami or Anagami are more subtile... but if someone through realisation of Dhamma comes directly to ...

Re: Sotapanna

@SIA Oh yes ) My English is not perfect. What I meant about "nothing more futher" is more about a state of mind, you see that this state of mind is the aim, and the path itself, that there is nothing to do after you will realise it fully, it's a bottom of the glass, and there is nothing beyond that,...

Re: Sotapanna

@SIA Tanks for answering ! Actualy i had the same experience when I was 21 with the same feelings and consequances. It happened when i was on the chair looking out of the window doing satipathana on thoughts. I don't know if it's some fruit or path, no matter, but it changes your personality complit...

Re: Does Sotapanna have the fear ( of death)?

If there is fear so there is no freedom from fear.
Fear is more about suffering rather " surprise". But I Will not debate sorry ;)

Can you deliberately kill, steal, lye, cheat ? And do you take drugs other than alcohool and tobacco ?

Re: Forgiveness and martial arts training

The first victim of one who acts through anger and ill will is this same person. Anger and ill will is a great suffering, so we have to be compationate to those who suffer this pain. Because of people's delusion, they dont understand their own suffering, the cause, the end and the way, thats why whi...

Suffering is caused by meeting of Greed, Hatred and Delusion with Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta.
