Goal should be samadhi. Enough time spent in samadhi can cure all kinds of issues.
Thanks.
Could Mitya Samadhi or wrong concentration lead to a Panic attack?

There is a Tibetan lama named "Mingyur Rinpoche" who suffered panic attacks when younger and was able to cure them through meditation. You might want to check out his youtube videos.
Thanks.
I have seen it before. I have to dig it out.

Re: What is the difference between Vitakka/ Vicara and Papanca?

Why Papanca is not included in Abhidhamma within 52 mental sates? What about intention ? Where does intention fit in ? Isn't intention or sankhara is the fifth in the process ? Thanks James. Please create another new topic as this seems to be an off topic. This topic is about the Vitakka and Papanca.

This question comes from wrong view.
If I ask "Is there a rock", is that also wrong view?

Re: Is there a mind ?

What I am saying is the mind also like fire, wind, and electricity.
They all are dependently originated phenomena.

The following video (Sinhalese language) Ven. Chandakitthi said that people with Vibhava tanha are re-born in Arupa Loka.
The reason given was that People with Vibhava Tanha has the disliking for the body.
