Satta is not an "idea". :roll: Why now do you assume 'a being'? Mara, have you grasped a view ? This is a heap of sheer constructions: Here no being is found.

Re: My new view of SN 12.15. Is it right or is it wrong?

... Now, let's answer your remarks. Satta is not an "idea". This is why I refer to the parallels.

Being defiled by attachment to and ent...

Re: What it means by "consciousness turn back"?

It sounds like the result of guarding the senses, not getting drawn in, not attaching. Which is exactly the contrary of what it is supposed to be.

Re: How Anathapindika got so rich

Being reborn in the Tusita heaven is no real benefice.
Still the Mara's realm (kama-loka).

The minimal benefice of Buddhism is (at least), to escape that kama-loka. Isn't it?
