Re: Support of consciousness in Arupadhatu

This is a good question. I can recall I asked the same question once but without a satisfactory answer. So my understanding is you still have space, consciousness itself, nothingness, neither perception nor nonperception as the craving to create Kamma. So they are the support for them. That is what ...

Buddhist Asks Question to Sadhguru | Vipassana Practitioner

Buddhist Asks Question to Sadhguru | Vipassana Practitioner. The question is about the Kamma and the begging of the world. Sadguru's answer resonates with the very answer given by Ven. Vijithananda. Just do it. Don't ask questions. Why many teachers tell the same thing, but we don't want to accept i...

Re: Mindfulness

I have listened to him up to counter 14.00 and found his teaching is inline with Satipathana and Anapanasati sutta. Obviously he can't cover all of the suttas in fourteen minutes. But his message is correct. The four satipathana arises at once, not in four different times. However, knowing of each S...

Agree.
A monk can't be healthier than his supporters.
Many laypeople have no idea about the food nutrition.

Re: What is rāgo in these two terms: rūparāgo, arūparāgo?

The way I understand Raga is equivalent to Tanha (craving)
The way I understand there are three Rago.
Kama Raga, Rupa Raga and Arupa Raga
Kama Raga = Puthujana or the state of the run of the mill person
Rupa Raga = Rupa Jhana (ist Jhana etc)
Arupa Raga = Arupa Jhana (infinity space etc.)
