All the sights, smells... Thoughts of yesterday and before are now gone. Yet there is a continuity from then ...

Re: Where in the Abhidhamma is nibbana stated to be extraneous and it's type of nama delineated?

:goodpost: But then BB is saying Nibbana ( the object :!: ) is also called "nama" because it causes supramundane cittas to bend/incline/conform/submit to it (Nibbana). Personally, I cannot agree with the above. Possibly there is a mistranslation of the Pali. :shrug: I think you provided the answer ...

It proves nibbana and samsara are the same thing,
For those of us who don't want to read Nagarjuna, can you summarise his argument.

Re: What means with to see things as they really are?

It means putting aside the distortion of myriad views and seeing phenemona as they are. This is accomplished by a concentrated mind with seven factors. (see MN 117)

Re: What is the least I should know and practice to realise Nibbana?

And what, bhikkhus, is the origin of form? What is the origin of feeling? What is the origin of perception? What is the origin of volitional formations? What is the origin of consciousness? “Here, bhikkhus, one seeks delight, one welcomes, one remains holding. And what is it that one seeks delight ...

Re: What is the least I should know and practice to realise Nibbana?

Bhikkhus, when the perception of impermanence is developed and cultivated, it eliminates all sensual lust, it eliminates all lust for existence, it eliminates all ignorance, it uproots all conceit ‘I am. Just as, bhikkhus, when the stalk of a bunch of mangoes has been cut, all the mangoes attached ...

Re: Which army of Mara are you fighting right now?

We who live in the kamaloka are such scatter brains because of mainly kama-chanda. Beings in the rupaloka and arupa loka supposedly have naturally concentrated minds.

Mendicants, without giving up these six qualities you can’t enter and remain in the first absorption. “Cha, bhikkhave, dhamme appahāya abhabbo paṭhamaṃ jhānaṃ upasampajja viharituṃ. What six?
